    I mean, they said to post our ideas of different scenarios in the comments. Not sure what you're acting facetious for. It's not like I gave vague ideas... I provided extra detail to give some ideas on how to make it work. I'm no programmer, but many of those can easily be done.

    Your sarcasm is appreciated, @Scival. Just not necessarily by all.

    That almost always means the things are not easy.

    You never, ever say something should be easy to do in gamedev. It almost always ends up being hard, if not near-impossible. Trust me, I am a programmer.

    I'm still worried that capturing them alive is easier than dead.

    Request: More story, more lore and more progression.

    It would be pretty neat if these bounty missions were their own subplot. Maybe some Occasus members are plotting to destroy a Hylotl city, or something like that.

    I sadly dont really like the idea of bounty hunting in this game, and while Im aware that this adds some much needed extra content that can be done at any time, I feel as though that this is... not exactly what's necessary at this stage of the game.

    At this point they need to actually update this game instead of just hotfixes. Almost been half a year. They even lost all transparency and pushed updates literally 2x as slow before the 1.0 update came out. I just think Chucklefish is too busy promoting other games to direct all their resources into this game anymore. It honestly shows through the this year. Half the game still isn't finished with the stuff they said they'd implement, yet the entire game is already out... with little to no communications anymore. Just another indie company at this point, nothing special. Decent game, just not what they promised. At all. Even now, with the lack of dev blogs or update. The last reason was because they were moving studios. After that, communication literally ceased, when it use to be so good.

    Awesome. I have a suggestion since you asked! For bounty hunting it would be cool to have a scenario where your Target could strike a better deal! Like pay you double not to kill him if you let him talk and go kill his contact instead. Second goes with the first. Maybe you impress them and they will join your crew if you spare them.

    Another useless update. Boo- OH MY GOD! ARE THOSE WHAT I THINK THEY ARE?! PASSCODE THINGIES AND OPENABLE NOTES?! This is all I ever wanted out of this game. Thank you Chucklefish, for bringing more maze making/wiring and note writing possibilities.

    Fractured Ideas for bounties
    1. Bounties with gang members, wanted dead, that provide an extra small reward for disposing of them.
    2. Possibly a space adventure type choice scenario where you can figure out the puzzles, or take a chance and set the base to self destruct giving you a time limit to collect your bounty, but also opening all security doors in your path(also possibly causing any smaller bounty targets to immediately flee the premises, causing a loss of bounty).
    3. Having the choice to help or let go certain bounties for more money or better equipment, at the chance of being targeted by bounty hunters yourself.
    4. Possibility of having to choose between splitting a reward with other bounty hunters or fighting them off.
    5. certain rng events that can put you in dire trouble or better rewards, such as either finding a hidden treasure or ending up trapped in a bandit stronghold.
    6. Mech battle
    7. Escaping a planet or prison with your bounty
    8. ability to hire bounties or mercenaries for your ship at the cost of the bounty.
    9. Maybe add a leveling system with passive benefits plz
    10. The chance to fight using capture balls in a Pokemon style arena, if you win you either get the bounty and a special/non-special monster collar, or you get the bounty plus a special or non-special monster. [like a monster called lightning rat that looks like its on steroids and does passive energy damage]

    While watching list of changes (since developing of 1.3) I can't understand 2 things.
    1- Where the shields? We have gazillions of random-parts weapon, a whole bunch of legendaries, but no shield. Not a single one legendary shield, no adequate end-game shield recipe, no shields of metall tiers. Is it super-mega hard thing to do?
    2-a map. a damn map. We have spaceships, blasters, mechs, terraforming devices, but we have no damn planetary scanner, or prone, or whatrever. Not a single device to have a damn level map.
    oh, but now we can enter the passcode on doors! Hurray! combo-:facepalm:

    I mean I agree that it's easier said than done, but I'm not just carelessly throwing terms around. I simply meant that they were things that are very feasible. Maybe I'm not a programmer, but I have taken programming classes, I just don't find it enough to be entertaining enough to pursue.

    All I'm saying is that I think most if not all of these could be done, and pretty much all my suggestions require little actual programming, just simple sequencing.
