So as you may know if you hang by the IRC, me and Pride have been discussing to change the way CoP works to make it so that there would be shops, a world map, and therfore, infinite save points (inbetween battles, of course)
So. I want to do it through a vote. Here are the consequeneces of each actions, and some details.
Shops will be added only sparingly. They will be available but it will be impossible to buy more than one or two items per fight. The player will be allowed to save up to buy more powerfull item if he saves up, even at the start of the game.
Map is a two-choicer, and I am not sure we can do it. But my dream would be to have a single dot or two on the map per chapter, and that it plays like Deep Dungeon (Finish one battle, unlock the next).
The other choice will make the map fucking ugly, or repetitive, very bothersome in term of work, but still, it can be amusing. In fact, what I plan is that you will always come back at the same place and go on the same dot between each battle, then respawn on that dot, so to say.
Adding a map Dungeon style : May be impossible but would not require that much work if possible. Requires extensive research!
Adding a map normal style : Hours of work, but does not need hours of research.
Adding shops : More equips... But I know some people absolutely love the loot system. Keep it in or out?
