One of the things I've always loved about this series is how the developers never rest on their laurels, but always strive to one-up their previous efforts. In that spirit, what are some ideas or improvements you'd like to see in the next Rune Factory game? Here are some of mine: 1. Give NPCs a limited inventory and allow players to manually change or take back their equipment. Also allow the player to give them food and potions so they can heal themselves in combat. And let the player give them Rune Abilities or spells to use. 2. Add an option to the lumber/material stone bin that allows you to put in all of them in your backpack at once. 3. The random event system is great and keeps things fresh in day-to-day play, except for the fact that marriage and the third story arc are tied to it. Make important events like those have set criteria to trigger, but keep everything else as-is. 4. Allow the player to pick which items' stats will be transferred when crafting to avoid needless save scumming. 5. If there are two kinds of items lying on the ground near the player and the player has one item type in hand, make it so that the cursor defaults to targeting the item the player is already carrying. 6. Make people stop saying lines that no longer apply, such as characters asking if you found someone special yet when you're married with a kid. Or better yet, change them into lines that are more appropriate. It just doesn't make sense for Dylas to keep asking Frey to be his friend when she's married to him and the mother of his child -.-; 7. Let your spouse and child(ren) do something to help out around the farm, and have the child(ren) take after your spouse in more ways, especially their appearance. It would be even better if you could have two children so you can have both a son and daughter. 8. Include more outfits, and change the characters' portraits when they're worn. Maybe have NPCs comment on them sometimes. 9. Have an optional grid system for furniture to make placement easier, and give more options for customizing the player's house. 10. Have an option or at the very least an event for your family to take a bath together. It's silly, but I always wanted to do that xD 11. Stop making random treasure chests be destroyed by attacks. Please. 12. Make little events for birthdays and anniversaries the way HM does. 13. Change the dialogue for dates after you get married. 14. Allow Protein, Vital Gummi, Heart Drink, Intelligencer, and Levelizers to be consumed instantly the way potions are, instead of taking several seconds to eat. 15. Bring back item trading and multiplayer in Sharance Labyrinth. Allow for online multiplayer and not just local multiplayer. 16. Make friends and family of characters you marry have special dialogue regarding that. For example, if you marry Forte, have Kiel worry about Lest's health because of her cooking, and talk about Luna/Noel as his nephew/niece. 17. Characters give different gifts on your birthday, and people you're dating give you different/better presents than they do as friends. Maybe they could change their gifts again after marriage. 18. Streetpass and Spotpass functionality. 19. Ability to load from a save diary. And on a random note...can the auto-capitalization of topic titles be turned off, or at the very least amended so that it doesn't capitalize things it shouldn't (ie articles and prepositions)?
