  • Another bodies suggestion

    In thievery, when someone gets KO'd/killed a body is spawned and his inventory items are dropped.

    In NightBlade it would be quite hard to maintain all the dead/KO'd bodies due to lag, plus dead/KO'd bodies don't have as much impact on the gameplay as in thievery.

    Therefor I would suggest that the 'inventory' drop and dead bodies be integrated into one system. Aperson dies, his dead body drops, and once you frob this dead body you search it for items (maybe put a small timer on it like lockpicking).

    Dead bodies would be around longer, since they are in essence 'pickups'. And you would also save a bit of lag by not having a mass of items drop onto the floor upon death.

    You could allways make the bodies dissapear after a timelimit or so, to get rid of excess bodies noone checked/frobbed.

    The thieves drop a backpack containing their stuff when they die, the body goes tumbling off into whatever crazy karma death location the client machine calculates.

      So it's in different area on different machines?

      sucks. MAJORLY!

          Hmm, I don't recall I've had any problems with picking up the contents of the backpack. So I guess it's ok...

              The backpack drops directly downwards from the point of death and contains all inventory items that are recoverable (currently cash, weapon and shield). The body flies off wherever.

              So, in short Rad, the answer you want is 'Yes'

                    I was going to avoid pointing out that he'd said that in the hopes that he'd carelessly let other features slip, but now he'll probably be more careful....
