    I think an easier way to do this is just log the last log in time next to each player. That way we can see when they log in and eventually deduce how often. Easier for the devs, and I've seen this feature on other games of this type.

    Town safe and p2p trading

    I was thinking that if in towns u could have a vault/safe to put gear or quest mats for other members to withdrawl or deposit for others or another option would be to have a player to player trading system where if both players are at the same locale they can initiate trade if online at same time. I have wanted to "give" my town members items to help them with their quests or their gear and cannot do it unless i throw it in market real cheap and hope they are able to snatch it up before anyone else. It is frustrating when they arent quick enough to get it and would like to see something like this integrated within the game.

    Thanx;

    Honestly I can't see that getting implemented in any way because there's no reason for a vault or safe to put gear into they want things to keep their value somewhat, money needs to be thrown around.

    Also, I don't see a person to person trade coming but I may be mistaken. Currently in the market you can set an item to Town Members, Alliance, or Anyone, if you're putting the item in Town Member only or Alliance only and someone is snatching it up, you have another issue in my opinion.

    Idea for a holiday quest

    How about father time's cloak(new years), we need something in the clothing area and maybe it could give some insane number to labor points. Just an idea.

    ADVENT CALENDAR- the things that are being given with the ADVENT CALENDAR i think should be offered in general store where you can buy them. if needed make it where you have to build more on the store in order to get these items. these items would improve the game even more. i know they sure helped me with a lot of the quest i have been doing.

    I've heard that in the next version 1.30... there will be about 30 more jobs added to the game. possibly they will be to collect licorice, and other similar items. The % might be different.

    I would say after 1.30 comes out if you dont find the advent items listed on any jobs then we can suggest this as a full idea.

    John, I have an account on beta that I just never play, so there is no need to bold your text and make your self sound like a big deal. And yes I read the forums over there occasionally and have seen you post the same threads that get shut down over here to only be posted over there and complain about our management style.

    But to get back on some kind of topic:
    So now that we have 1.3 live, it might be worthwhile to discuss usable items in stores or found on future jobs.

    I've been thinking of some kind of an archive for the telegrams. An archive where you can move your reports from the main "report page". get my drift? There should be an option to archive all messages that you want to keep so you don't erase them by mistake.

    I don't know if it has been posted somewhere else in the forums but I have and idea. What if we could have a closet area, or something of the sort that we could put together the particular outfits we want to use with each particular job, kind of like an automated outfitter. That way let's say you have several different jobs you are working overnight, when you switched over to the next job, your outfitter would automatically change your wardrobe inventory over to what you have set up in your closet. Don't know if it is doable or if others think it would be a help. Just an idea.

    There are some 3rd party add ons that aid you in doing that manually yourself. Auto setting the clothes automatically is against the rules.

    I use an old add on that helps me... but hasn't been updated to include the pants/belts yet. It allows you to save the clothes you had on, and then reapplys them as you had them on, however if your doing a job that required a piece of clothing then it wont be able to change that piece of clothing until you are no longer required to have that article of clothing on for the required job.
    The West Wardrobe Script

    I also use the addon The Saloon Bar to aid me in telling me the best outfits to wear based on my inventory which includes pants/belts now.

    As for adding it to the game... I doubt the developers would include a way to auto set up the best clothes as that is a challenge of the game to figure out what works best in different situations. If you just have an easy-all solution then why have clothes at all since the game is going to do it all for you anyway.

    Send yourself an invite back to town

    I think we need to be able to send ourselves an invite back to town if we leave to go shopping, for example my town on world 1 THE WATCHMEN, I sent my town member a message asking to send me an invite back to town because i was going shopping. Well i went shopping and the town member read my message and never replied or sent me an invite.

    Maybe we can give ourselves an invite to our own town and it would expire say after two weeks. Also once we get back to town our founder and counsler status should be re-instated.

    i already suggested this idea before was rejected by many(to save you some time). there is a planned wardrobe where you store a particular outfit. However it don't change automatic. Current workaround check the scripts(not certain of forum name) there is code for a wardrobe which will become redundant once they implement it in game.

    I suffer from laziness here is the threadhttp://forum.the-west.net/showthread.php?t=40256

    Random Drops from Duels

    This just seems to make since to me...why do we not have some random item drops from duels? The higher rank the target, the more value of the potential drop. In the real old west, a cowboy would have been stripped of gear after losing a duel...I'm not suggesting that but it does seem that some random equipment drops would make sense.
