Things i miss in this wonderful game

Here's my list of ideas, suggestion and whines about stuff that should be available in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.:

- Choose between chrosshairs. Here's a crazy idea: How about a crosshair-designer? Would be cool with a small app which would let you design your own crosshair (Modders: Get on it! lol).

- Identify friendly targets

- Slow down sprinting

- More modes like:
*Base Control:
Lets say 3 or 5 bases per map, depending on map-size, that you take over and control for points.
*Catch the Artefact:
Like catch the flag but artefacts instead.
*Defend/Assault:
Stalkers are in possesion of a very rare, valuable and dangerous artefact. And the Mercs want it!
Basicly: Stalkers/Freedom defend an artifact that the Mercs are gonna try to steal and bring to an escape-zone. (Alot like AS in CS).

- Favorite server function.

- Smoother in-game server-browser.

- Specify IP function.

- Copy/Paste in console

- Detailed server info (Like IP, Lag, Players, Scores, Settings and so on).

- More color on the team-models in AH & TDM. Hard as f*ck to see if it is an enemy or a team-mate sometimes (mostly on long distances), especially for first-timers.

- Mapping is a very important part of a game-community.
I don't know if people are able to make maps themselves yet but if not, you should make it possible (in a decently easy way, like Worldcraft for HL or something like that). And ofcourse the game would need a good custom map support for this.

- Ambience @ Muliplayer Mode...
Totally unnecessary according to me.

- Team-chat tags! It's a bit annoying when you don't see if a player chats with the team only or everybody...
I.e: (Team) MazZer: Go west!

- Cases! Another annoying thing is that you can't use upper cases!? If i set my nick to MazZer it's still mazzer!

- Name-memory!? Every time i join a server my nick is just "mazzer" even if i changed it to "slampan" last time i played...

Finally: This is not demands, it's just a wishlist!
Thx for a great game!
Love it! Worth every penny!

Many of these ideas are good!

Only, the game already has "catch the artefact," which is called "Artefact Hunt"

Also, you identify friendlies by the color of their ugly day-glo armbands that you can't miss, even in the pitch black of a moonless night.

Ever played catch the flag in UT2k4 or Q3?
If not I'll try to explain:
Each team has their own flag (or artefact if we talk stalker) in their base.
And the goal is to get into the other teams base and steal their flag and bring it to their own base or flag.

And identify friendlies are not always easy when you only see their ass or something like that. The ugly day-glo armbands aren't very clear on my game (maybe cos i got static light or something)...

I'd like to see something else. VoIP in game voice communication. So you can use a mic and think up a start with your fellow stalkers

By the way, wanna play now ?

They'll just make an option where you can mute it. Then it'll be fine.

A search and Destroy / Drop the bomb mode would be cool.

Also Team Elimation mode with time limits rather than respawn.

Yea, you mention a particular form of capture the flag, which is okay for artifact hunt, I guess. Maybe call it Steal the Artifact or something.

Also, it may be a server option for friendly Identification but I have noticed that there is also an ugly bright tag above their heads. I know, I know that when you can only see their foot or their ass you still won't see it... But also remember that you can see friendlies as green dots on your mini-map, so if you're looking at a guy and you can't see his arm-bands OR his head-tag, just glance at the minimap. That's no less than three ways to id friendlies...to me that's plenty (oh, four, someone mentioned caps lock? I didn't know about that).

I really don't know what more you would want. I'm more of a tactical minded gamer so sorry if I don't have more sympathy for your problem. I play with my xhairs off and I wouldn't mind at all if we could only tell friendlies by their uniform, even without the day-glo armbands!

I like the voip idea and I definitely miss it, especially in Artifact Hunt where teamwork is more essential.

that would be very good.

to make multiplayer much better would be to remove the lag!!!
