    Please remove critters. (Rats and so on).

    They provide no benefit to the game, are completely pointless and slow down performance.

    I've had many laughs when they randomly mess up one of my friends bins though.

    Creatures were added in the past to deter radar use. But all it does now is decrease fps and mess up duels. Turning them off will significantly improve server performance. Win/Win ??

    Its worth trying to see if server and client performance improves at all.

    Definitely to increase performance.


    ALSO, consolidate crates, barrels, clams etc like chaos chests. Pointless having 100 of them with 6 nacre each when I could loot one with 60 nacre and have less random shit around.

    Low development; high impact!

    Is player Radar still a thing?

    *Server Up log in at Frost Coast to hit our mine*

    LoD Scrub #147: Bwoop.....Bwoop....Bwoop... Bwoop *stops hitting the mine* BWOOP! BWOOP! BWOOP!

    Me: *Keeps hitting mine* "What the fuck is that sound coming through your microphone? And where are you going?"

    LoD Scrub #147: *Launches over wall and leaves city* "Uh... that's just my Friend playing my pinball machine. AFK 30"

    Me: *Gets jumped and zerged*

    Me: "... Goddamnit"

    Nooooo! Agon is lifeless as it is. Critters provide a bit of variation, and the wildlife outside the cities more so.
    My request is to have roaming aggro mobs as well some day, let them run on the same sort of pathfinding as the deer and bighorns and attacks players when they find them!

    They dont really though. And who is it that's outside travelling the wilderness, taking in the sights and admiring the grand illusion of a living breathing world?
    Roaming aggro mobs would be much more meaningful and better.. but not as many of them as there are wildlife. Sort of like a chaos chest rarity or little more common. Always drop a treasure map or something maybe.
