I've seen a lot of people ask about features that would be cool, but aren't realisticly achievable for one reason or another. Keep in my that the possibilites are *not* limitless for this game, and that something that may seem small may not be possible because it would require a lot of work and put a drag on the performance of the game in order to run. Also keep in mind that even if it were possible to implement some features, it may not be preferable.
Technology is not limitless. We can dream and fantasize about cool and realistic features all day, but at the end of the day it all depends on the hardware available to us, and the strength of the programing of the games code. So when you think of a feature, first ask yourself if it would actually be possible to do, and if its possible, would it be sustainable with the rest of the game's features?
Some features just aren't worth being put in or just don't make sense. A lot of building a game is actually taking things out of the original plan because developers realize they aren't worth it or they dont make sense, either from a game perspective or a logical one. A lot of idea's being thrown around would actually make the player way overpowered, and while it would be an epic moment or badass idea, it provides the possibility of making the game way too easy. Again, when you think of something ask yourself if it makes sense, and if it would ultimately hurt or help the games expereince for the general audience, and not just yourself.
I'm not intending to bash people and their ideas, so if thats how this comes off as I apologize. The whole point of this forum is to come forth and share ideas about the game after all! I just wanted to say, that before you get too excited, make sure to really think about what I've said here. I don't want anyone to build up a false idea of this amazing game and be disappointed on release (not that i think anyones gonna be disappointed by SoW, mind you.)
