me and my wife are playing Miscreated for a few weeks now and i would like to give you feedback and some recommendations. First of all. We played a lot of multiplayer games similiar to Miscreated, like DayZ, Rush, H1Z1, 7 Days to Die and so on. Let's say we also saw many mistakes made by devs.
- Mutants spawn (everyone calling them Zombies) - In my opinion there is not enough mutants. Some people say it is ok but we don't think so. We were playing for 3 hours and we didn't see 1 mutant that is not right. Don't get me wrong I don't like when all you see are enemies but there should be more mutants in cities and villages.
- Mutants view range - Mutants should not get alerted by you when they can't see you. Sometimes i was in a building and a mutant start sprinting to me. He didn't see me I was just in his alert range and he get alerted even when i was silent. They should only get alerted when they can see you or you are loud (like sprinting or talking).
Mutants species - We all agreed on this one. There should me more species. Some faster, some slower, some harder to kill and some easier. They should also have a chance to infect you when they hurt you and then you would need to use some pills or antibiotics to cure yourself.
Overall mutants in this game are very easy to kill and are not a threat. This should change.
- Weapons - There should be more weapons. Don't get me wrong on this one, not easier to find weapons but more type of weapons. I think it should be harder to find a firearm and bullets. All you need is to loot for a few hours and you have the best weapons and that is not right. People should be thankful for 9mm gun. In my opinion add more type of weapons and make them rare.
- Ammunition - In my opinion there should be more type of ammunition. For example you can have hollow point 9mm, full metal jacket 9mm and standard 9mm. All of them can be used in 9mm gun and you just choose what is best for your situation. Same with other ammunition like 5.56. There should be tracer rounds, explosive rounds (yes, they really exist) and armor piercing rounds. You may ask why armor piercing rounds, well keep on reading. Also there is plenty of ammunition in the game. Ammunition should be rare.
- Bullet proof vest - There should be bullet proof vest and bullet proof plate. It should be heavy, it should be very rare but it should be in the game. When you find bullet proof plate and not the right vest for it you should be able to craft a vest with this plate. Otherwise you would need to find the right vest and the plate and combine them together. Only armor piercing rounds should be able to penetrate this armor. (headshots, arm/legs shoots are still possible, only torso is protected not the back)
- Shoes - The heavier the shoes are the louder they should be. For example steel-plate shoes should be louder than hunting boots but should protect you more against melee attacks (mutants/players).
- Head protection - Now there is no difference between a cowboy hat and a military helmet and that should change. Helmets should protect you against small caliber headshots and do "just" a lot of damage. People like to use .22 guns because they can one-shoot anyone if any head protection was in the game high caliber guns would be preferred (they should also be rare as mention above).
- View - I think there should be view range setting in the game options. This option should not advantage people with high-end computers so people spotting range should be server fixed. If spotting range would be set higher than people with low setting would be limited. People with high setting would see you but you would not see them. This setting need a lot of testing but in my opinion it would be better if both spotting range and view distance are set higher.
- Server slots - The map is big enough now so I don't see any reason why not let people decide how many slots they want on the server. Just set the max slots to 128 and let people decide in they want 36, 48, 64, 90 or 128 slots on their server. At the end they pay for the slots.
- Dedicated servers - I think there should be an option to make locale or dedicated server. Why would people rent they server than? Well you can always set max 36 slots on locale or dedicated server so if anyone want better server with more slots they need to pay for them.
- Air bases - No, no, no, no! This need to be stopped.
- Food - There should not be so many food. There is no reason for hunting and cooking when you have a bunch of cans in every house. Cans and food overall should be set to 1/10 of what it is now and there should be much higher animal spawn rate. People should be hunting and cooking. Also uncooked meat should make you sick. All food should rotten after days-
- Water - All you need are 3 canteens and you are good. It should not be so easy. Refiled water should need to be heat threated first or some chlorine pills need to be put in it. Otherwise you would be ill.
- Alcohol - It should make your vision blurry
- Shovels and holes - There should be shovels in the game and a player should be able to make holes and hide things in it.
- Maps - Player should be able to make marks on his map. For example to mark his holes. Well if anyone kills him he can also get to the map with marked holes.
- Cars - Cars should break down sometimes even when they are full with diesel and oil. Sometimes player should be able to repair or change for example broken spark plugs but when an engine is broken it should not be repairable.
- Scopes - Player should be able to mount rails and then scopes on almost every weapon. Again, it should be rare.
- Lasers - Laser attachment, right now is not usable because everyone can see when you are aiming and mainly from where you aiming. There should be more type of lasers. some lasers can be seen, some just at night and some should be just a dot on your enemy. Again, very rare.
- Silencers - Almost every gun should mount a silencer. You would need a right thread for your gun and then the right silencer. Silencer isn't as silence as in the movies. You can still hear it but it's just quitter. Again, very very rare.
- Ammunition crafting - Player should be able to craft his own ammunition. He would need guides, bullet casings/shells, tools for it, black powder and also craft a bullet main core first before ammunition is crafted. This should be very very hard so very very very rare. Player should also be able to pick up bullet casings after he shoots.
Hope this will give devs some ideas what to improve or add to the game. If there are any mistakes in this well I'm sorry. English is not my native language.
We both love this game. It is better than other games of this type. Hope devs will keep updating it.
