These go in descending order of personal importance

 

(highlighted areas are the main point)

 

1. (This is the big one though) When using the flight suit, let the dragon follow behind you! I'm sick of only being able to do it over the water at a certain height on my PC it's infuriating!

 

2. Upgrade the Stormcutter size, please! I know lag is a thing but the size of the dragon isn't what makes that, it's not an excuse to make such an amazing and huge dragon tiny! At the absolute least make the titan as big as the acutal size.

 

3. Also some nice customisable features for your dragon would be amazing. Like scars or something. I mean just like something to make them more individual. Literally anything to make our dragons more unique to us.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Clouds we can fly through, really high up, proper clouds. This would be amazing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.  We need a sit, pet and roar button, is that so much to ask?

 

 

6. Customising your clothes colour would be great.

 

7. Flight suit should be usable in all the maps.

 

8.We need to be able to follow our friends to races 

 

9. Having enormous forests would be amazing, just a forest island where the trees dwarf the dragons and it's just thick shrubs everywhere.

 

10. The Titan Sand Wraith needs some fixing.

 

11. Some New animations for most of the dragons, especially Toothless.

 

 

12. The dragon glitches could do with being fixed, like the raincutter and stormcutter when flying sometimes bug out and get stuck.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

13. Let all the dragons be able to fly with you on the flight suit properly. By this I mean like the Timberjack and the forgotten dragon, for example, all jump around like crazy when flying behind you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

14. I really feel like they should start to link maps, so that you no longer have the waiting screens but you just fly to the area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

15. The render distance for these maps needs to be far greater, cause the sea just disappearing in the distance is annoying, especially given we're flying high in the air and should be able to see for miles.

 

 

 

16. The tail-fins on our dragons should move. It's literally the whole reason toothless has a prosthetic. But our models have static tails. 

 

17. Bigger maps (Which is understandably hard so it goes at the bottom of the list, but Berk is way to small, and Dragon's Edge)

 

8. The titan sandwraith needs some fixing

i agree

I agree with most of these things. I even have one... Let us customise Toothlesses tail fin or buy them. Just so we can make your Toothless's more special

" Upgrade the Stormcutter size, please! I know lag is a thing but the size of the dragon isn't what makes that, it's not an excuse to make such an amazing and huge dragon tiny!" 

It's a perfectly good excuse, actually.

 

"I really feel like they should start to link maps, so that you no longer have the waiting screens but you just fly to the area." 

That was a thing, actually. You'd have to ride a timberjack to some hoops. I'm glad it was removed. It felt like a waste of time.

 

"The render distance for these maps needs to be far greater, cause the sea just disappearing in the distance is annoying, especially given we're flying high in the air and should be able to see for miles." 

I don't have this problem. Might be your pc that's not up to the task.

 

"Bigger maps (Which is understandably hard so it goes at the bottom of the list, but Berk is way to small, and Dragon's Edge)" 

Would give performance issues for mobile users and people with  low-range pc's.

 

Don't forget, SoD is a mobile game per definition.

 

I do like the customisation ideas though as the game is lacking a bit on that regard, and yeah, some of the animation sets definitely need some fixing. Though if I could give you a tip: Try to elaborate. "fix the titan sand wraith" isn't very clear. How does it need fixing? It'd be convenient for the relevant people to know.

Hm.

I find this kinda rude. Please think about your wording.

 

I know about the timberjack I've been playing this game since it was made. I didn't mean that, I meant that they should be actually linked, so you just keep flying and soon you appear at the next island.

 

My PC is up to task, I mean that the sea needs to not cut off. It just stops, it does that on your computer too. Please don't be rude about my pc, it's literally a gaming pc made to deal with top end games smoothly, such as DOOM and For Honor. So I think a game a simple as SOD is beyond my pc. Its not that. This game isn't hard for most pcs to handle. I mean the sea should be constant, or at least part of the skybox.

 

I put bigger maps at the bottom because I acknowledged all these things before... As I said.

 

I made a whole post on the titan sand wraith problems, here: http://forum.schoolofdragons.com/content/issues-titan-sand-wraith Some of which are opinions that I actually have come to deal with, but some are texture issues.

 

Plus it didn't have to be a whole description, it's just a suggestion about a needed improvement.

 

Thanks.

...

By the islands being linked you're refering to what's called Open World. Lots of people want this but it's just not possible. There are forum users who are really smart with computers that have explained why this isn't possible before. Having no loading screens and just an open world would cause way too much lag. A lot of people's mobile devices and pc's couldn't handle it and they wouldn't be able to play the game. Less loading screens is a nice thought but it just isn't possible.

 

I like your suggestions about more customization for our dragons and clothes. I would love to have that.

Yeah the clothes is something

Yeah the clothes is something I really want to see.

 

I know the open world thing is hard but just between close maps might be do-able like Berk and the Berk Docks.

How is it rude? Explain?

 

To be able to fly to and from islands would either require the game to be open-world or similar, or an in-betweener like the timberjack. It'll be too big of a perfomance hit if it isn't just an instance. I personally hated the timberjack instance/inbetweener and I doubt that we'll ever see an open world game.

Or do you want something similar to the timberjack idea, but just w/ your own dragon and the space bar while flying closer and closer towards a billboard or a very low-res island model? I'd rather not have anything like that, personally.

 

"it does that on your computer too"

No it doesn't. 

 

I know what a suggestion is. Thing is that people can still have an opinion on said suggestions. That's what the forums are partially for, really. Your writing isn't clear so I may have misunderstood some of your things.

Please drop the agressive

Please drop the agressive writing, that is what I mean by rude, i.e 'How is it rude? Explain?' How am I not to read that as rude. As well as the quick conclusion that my PC is bad, with a tone of reading that is only an insult.

 

 Other than that your points and misunderstandings were valid. You don't have to reiterate, I heard you.

 

Look, in the way of the flying, I mean open world. Only between certain maps that are very close like Dragon's Edge and a few of it's closer companion islands or Berk and Helheim's Gate (which in the movie is far closer but, again, it's the S.O.D world and not the connon httyd world.) Or even just the maps of the school ground, or the school and Berk, or Berk and the Berk Docks. Just a few maps joined together to give it a more open plan feel would be great. 

 

As you have made the point of mentioning, it's difficult and less likely to be done due to the game's compatability with mobile devices.

 

Again this is why it was low on the list.

 

If your computer truly does not see the water dissapear at a certain height above ground level, then that is extrodinary as everyone I know who plays this game has this experience and our computers are just fine, thanks. You may still misunderstand so I'll post an image. 

 

 

See, the see and the sky are in no way linked, the sky is not connected to the sea, unlike in real life. There is this void between to the two and the base of the sky doesn't connect. I don't think your computer doesn't have this. However, you are steadfast in this opinion and thats fine, I'm unlikely to change that even with proof. That's all that was bugging me.

 

And no I also do not want the timberjack thing back, I literally mean that it could be a tad more open world. This would make it feel more like the proper archipelago. It's not even my biggest improvement, I don't particularly care if, as you and someone else have said, it's not easily possible. This forum may be for open opinion but not agressively so and also, it's my opinion, just the same way that yours are your own.

You can't just say that my writing is aggressive without providing examples. How is it aggressive? It's just text and I'm not insulting anyone. I could also read your text as if it were aggressive if I wanted to, but I assume it's just your way of typing, so I'm not bothered by it.

Also, I never implied that your pc was bad. I said 'might'. I never came to a conclusion. 

 

I don't think it's the sea in case of the image. It's the oddly placed horizon in the skybox that makes everything appear flat and finite depending on the angle. It doesn't have anything to do with render distance at least. It could definitely use an update.

By now, most people have said

By now, most people would have said 'sorry that wasn't my intention' your defensiveness is showing you meant to be forceful. I can take your wording however I read it as your language is not worded casually or nicely at all...

 

And I did provide and example.

 

And you did insult me by forcibly questioning my opinion and simply sort of just 'proving me wrong' rather than just giving an observation that it was not as possible to make links and that the sea doesn't really seem to do that, you didn't use any language to suggest that you weren't just saying a sraightforward 'you're wrong'

 

I, personally, am sorry you are annoyed I find your wording insulting but that's just simply how I read a really formal post with no casuality to it that pokes holes in any logic to a simple suggested opinion. I've had no problem with any other counter argument, but yours was rather rude, to me at least.

 

I really refuse to fill this forum post with a stupid argument, so I'll just stop now. Just consider wording and try not to debunk everything someone says, it's really just not cool.

You asked me to think about my wording. I asked you to elaborate so I could fix it, but you have been dodging the question twice now. (no, the 'but /I/ read it as rude' is more an issue on your side, not mine) I'm not going to apologise if you won't tell me what I am doing wrong in the first place.  Placing yourself in some random victim role isn't very mature of you.

My posts aren't formal either.  Legible, yes. Not formal. Sorry for not using enough emojis and lololo xD keks I guess? Sorry for writing in a way that you don't like even though you refuse to tell me what the issue is? Heh.

 

Forcibly questioning an opinion... Yikes. That's just... more victimhood... How did I force... well, never mind, this makes no sense at all.

I am going to leave this thread now. It's clear that you're not ready to share and discuss ideas on the net without assuming that anyone who disagrees with you has a personal issue with you. I will not be checking this thread again because I really don't feel like justifying myself to someone who makes up things to be offended about. PM me if you want to continue because I won't do it here. Houdoe.

Bye

Random victim role is hardly a mature sentance either, I don't think I know of a mature adult in the world who blames someone as victimising themselves...

 

And it's got nothing to do with emojis, it's with the way your reply's to my opinions were straightforward dead-ended and closed off statements that just debunked an opinion, which is what I mean by forcible.

 

You stated your opinion as fact, an opinionated fact, which makes no sense. I showed you how I experienced these things and felt they could be improved upon but you persisted to just sort of deny me without any evidence of your own. I'd say I've sufficiently shown you what I deem as being wrong with the points you told me I was simply incorrect on, though you've not provided your own counter point.

 

You never asked for me to elaborate wording you just argued my offense was totally unjustified and just demanded 'How is it rude? Explain?' that meant nothing about explaining your wording at all, 'Explain' meant anything at that point and that kind of action is more immature than anything I've said.

 

I'm not mortally offended by it for goodness sake, I couldn't care much less about it in reality, I just found it a bit unfair that you took some kind of a superior position to an opinion like to say 'Might be your pc that's not up to the task.' which doesn't allow for any open, casual talk on the topic it was you being steadfast in saying I was simply wrong.

 

I have, as I said, had no issue with other people's disagreements with me on this thread or the other, better formatted version that I posted. It was just your comment. So no, I don't just go around 'assuming that anyone who disagrees with (me) has a personal issue with (me)'. It's not about 'victims' either, your sudden addition of the idea of a 'victim' is a heavily immature thing I haven't seen done by someone in a discussion since I was in early High School. 

 

Additionally to this, for you to completely debunk my opinion that the Stormcutter size can be increased (Even just a bit, cause it's absolutely incorrectly tiny) with 'It's a perfectly good excuse, actually.' Without much evidence for that at all and a statement that just wanted me to be wrong.

 

My evidence for the Stormcutter size is that given larger dragons do exsist and don't cause instant game-death (and don't pretend like they do, it's only for the unfortunate few) I can only say on that front that the size of the dragons does nothing to game performance, not on my tablet, my pc, my laptop, or my rather bad, old tablet. It just doesn't seem to at all, not even a server with 7 timberjacks! A small increase would not cause that, and lots of people having this large dragon again, would not do that.

 

It was your dismissal of an opinion like that which is rude and your opinion being stated like a fact to just debunk my thoughts, that's simply not how a polite conversation works.

 

And again with the debunking you didn't offer open discussion on bigger maps you just said 'Would give performance issues for mobile users and people with  low-range pc's'   Which doesn't allow for the person your talking to to give their further opinion on that and also has no evidence.

 

For you to have taken to reigning against my offense shows a total lack of maturity on your part for an adult does not ask someone to justify their offence and to then further hold that they 'wont apologise'. That, is childish.

 

A simple 'Oops sorry I didn't mean to be rude' Is how most rational people handle that, it shows a lack of maturity on your end that you feel you lose something by just saying sorry for hurting another human being's feelings...

 

I truly am tired of talking to you about this and your lack of maturity on the topic of my personal opinion on these matters, which I have supported with evidence, to the best of my ability. Especially to a reply so shut-off from any ability to have an open opinion. Where you have provided little to no evidence and just debunked my thoughts as your own 'factual' opinion.

 

Now lets just stop because I'm bored of this. Your rudeness doesn't affect me in some stupidly deep 'vicitmised' way. I was just startled to see someone so blutnly and immaturely state 'Nope, you're wrong' in one sentance, with no evidence or room for discussion. Bye.
