my ideas

AI:
its a little whishful i know but i dont think the ai is all it could be, as people have suggested it would be great to see ais morn the loss of their friends, get scared etc. also it would be nice to have subtitles for people talking round camps. but i think the main issues with the ai are that they seem to know where you are from miles away sometimes not just that but even when sneaking round a dark building they still know where to find you, which as far as im concearnd makes the use of a knife redundant. i think it would be nice if you wernt on your own so often aswell, making you feel less like rambo and more like part of a team. i know in missions people are with you sometimes. but it might be nice to be able to hire mercs or just bond with npcs who you can ask for help if needs be. people have also suggested trading or giving them equipment would make them friendly with you. it would be nice if the ais in the bar had a few more voice emotes, like the guard who tells you to come in, he says it when you leave as well. or the information seller who says he has information even if you have it all.

the character:
i think it would be great if you could go prone instead of just crouch and low crouch. seeing battlescaring would be nice too but i suppose thats hard without a 3rd person view unless you put lots of mirrors in. Eating seems abit so so at the moment and not like a big problem as most npcs drop food if you can be botherd to loot them.

Trading:
trading with any one but the bar keep seems to only offer the option of buying vodka and abit of food might be nice if you could get some of their equipment from them. The bar keep himself doesnt have anything special and tbh i think the only thing ive purchased was ammo at the begning and grenades now, perhaps they should have very high priced special guns otherwise there isnt reallty much point in buying things from them.

Wepons:
i personally like the guns in the game i know alot of people dont, i guess they are still lumberd with the guns from the early stage which are really inacurate compared to the ones you get later. pistols are a little bit useless i have to say the only one i actually use so far is the desserteagle all the rest seem really low powerd and inacurate. If a stealthier mode was introduced might be nice to see stealth wepons and attacks.

Vehicles:
alot of people still want them, i dont think they would reall fit in the game now though, perhaps in an expansion with more freeground

Coop:
i think this is one of the main let downs in the game i would have love to have had a coop game mode, especially when you feel so alone in singleplayer. it would be great to play the game through with friends.

well thats all i can think of at the moment what do you guys think??????

All sounds like great ideas, the trading/money system is just way off as it is now, you are almost always to rich for your own good, if some more characters would be able to sell ammo and charge more money for it this might be fixed.

I also thought when i first saw the ranking list that I could click on the character and they would appear on the map ( just like any other mission ) and i could then find the bastards and shoot them down, to work my way to the top so to speak. But that never happend thou it would be a cool feature if the dudes also dropped some rareweapons n stuff.. well just a thought.

BTW: I don't think coop will be coming unless someone mods the game. And you are right, coop is the one thing im missing from the game, even if it was just with 1-3 players it would add a lot. And now with coop-play on the rise again ( SWAT4,GOW,RainbowSix vegas ) it's almost no longer a bonus when you get coop, it's more like something you expect.

Allrhou allaround, this is one my favorite games ever, i'm a big fallout fan and this game captures some of the same feeling.
