3 LITTLE TWEAKS THAT COULD GO A LONG WAY!!!

First off, what a magnificent game! Bungie has done an excellent job in making - already - one of my favourite games! However, a few things are offsetting the pace of the game a little, BUT this is Beta so let's get into the nitty gritty. I have 3 things arranged in order of importance which will vastly improve the game's flow. Hope this gets noticed! 3. [b]Character Customization: [/b]There is a small lack of variety, we as players, live for in games like these. I feel 3 things let this great feature down. No facial hair options was a big surprise and disappointment. For humans, a lot of hair colours (especially blonde) is far too intense and strong. Hair tones like these NEED to be desaturated and tweaked a little! Eyebrows need to be slightly darker than the hair tones and a bit more washed. Right now most human hair combinations look considerably silly (which is a huge shame). A little tweak of this will go a long way! 2. [b]Tower Population Cap:[/b] Right now I believe that The Tower's phasing population cap is 16. I'm not sure if this was done purposely for the Beta, but I sure as hell hope not! This place feels borderline abandoned with only 16-or-so people running around, and makes travelling back to The Tower seem quite underwhelming. THIS IS THE TOWER - THE GUARDIAN GATHERING HUB!! This place NEEEEEDS to feel crowded and busy! Please do your best Bungie to crank up the cap as much as necessary to make the place feel like what it should be. 1. [b]Loot:[/b] I cannot stress this issue enough.. Countless times me and my fellow guardians are left confused after defeating The Devil Walker and Sepiks Prime. All we are left with after their death is a silent void of.. well.. nothing. No music, no "Boss Defeated", and in most cases no loot - literally nothing. Picking up loot is far from being in a good spot at the moment. Having the visual loot drops almost identical to ammo, special ammo and charge for your super is not working well. At a certain distance, it's almost impossible to tell - that's if you actually see it; WE NEED TO SEE OUR LOOT! <--- This is important. Very important. We need to be ensured we do not miss out on loot because we can't find it. When loot drops, it needs to be distinctly clarified and clear. An icon should appear above loot much like what was done for the quest items for the mission where you collect the dead ghosts. Eg. if a hand cannon drops, a pointer icon should exist over the loot with a simplistic symbol (preferably colour coded to it's rarity) to immediately recognise our loot. CLARITY goes a long way! I really do hope these changes are implemented. I REALLY HOPE this gets seen and recognised by the game gods Bungie themselves. I could not be more certain this will go towards a far better gaming experience in Destiny! Stay hopeful Guardians!

  • I agree with all 3. There needs to be WAY more characters customisation, the tower definitely does feel like a ghost town at the moment - there needs to be more people and generally more things going on (it should be a busy place!). The loot is very hard to distinguish from ammo that is dropped at the moment, there should be symbols hovering above all loot to indicate what it is and what rarity it is.

        I'm pretty sure they will have more customizations once the game comes out and for #3 it would be nice to see loot or even idk something for when we defeat a big boss.

        • I agree with all three. The character customisation is s hit! There needs to be so much more customisation options. And maybe even customising your Ghost; like shape, eye colour and voice? Weapon and vehicle customisation should be added aswell. The Tower is meant to be a social place. Well at the moment it doesn't feel to social. The cap needs to be raised to around 40. It's not like people can get in your way as you run through them anyway.

          • It would be an exceptional addition to be able to [b]use the flash-light at will[/b] instead of the semi-random darkness scale it seems to operate on.

              • I wonder if in stead of the flash light you could use the night vision like there was in ODST because there were a lot of time that the area was dark and the flash light was not on.

              • Generally what needs to be improved is loot drop rate. It's simply not satisfying to blow up something like a walker or defend a Warsat during public events and get -no- items for doing so. There should be a guaranteed engram drop, at the least.

                I don't know if you knew this, but any Uncommon or higher loot that you may miss in the field will be sent to The Tower for you. It will be at the Postmaster.

                  First two, its beta Second one, do you not hear that horrid sound Sepiks makes when it dies? And the spider tank (shut up i love calling it that or tachikoma) makes a huge noise too. And their loot is at the end if you didn't notice you get two things. And engrams, i feel like the only way i could notice them more is if someone held it in front of my face asking me if i can see it. Again, Sepiks makes a huge horrid noise and blows up, while you are looking at it

                  • I agree, also character customization should allow you to rotate the character during the creation menu and there should be a cosmetic barber or something to change hairstyles in the Tower for glimmer.

                        maybe this could work for the loot? (the green light going in to the air) I agree with all 3 improvements

                        • I agree with your opinion on how loot should be changed, but not the other two. Sure, changing them would be improvements, but minor ones at best and I don't think they are worth the developer's time.
