Conan Exiles - Time To Mount Up

It is time to mount your steeds and ride across the plains of the Exiled Lands. One of the most sought-after features since Early Access launch is a reality: Mounts are now available in Conan Exiles!  You can engage in mounted combat and level up your pets and thralls, so they grow more powerful the more time you spend with them.
Getting a mount works the same way as getting a regular pet. You will first have to find a foal, then bring it back to a Stable to raise it. Stables work the same as Animal Pens, but are for horses only.
Like Pets/Thralls, horses will grow stronger as they level up. Raise several different horses to find one with the stats you like.
Once your foal has grown into adult horse it can be placed in the world, like a regular Thrall/Pet. To ride into the sunset like your favorite cowboy you’ll need to equip your horse with a saddle, which can be unlocked at level 20.
Saddles will have different effects on your mount:
Cavalry Saddle – Fast acceleration, maximum speed, minimum defense, minimum maneuverability Scout Saddle – Long sprinting time, medium speed, low defense, maximum maneuverability Warhorse Saddle – Slow acceleration, minimum speed, high defense, low maneuverability No matter which saddle you choose, using a horse to get anywhere is significantly faster than running on foot.
With mounts we’re also introducing mounted combat. Shoot your enemies from afar with a bow and gallop away before they know what’s going on. Grab a sword, axe or mace and swing away from the comfort of your steed.  Equip a pike or a spear and attack your enemies by stabbing at them or equip a lance and tear through your opponent’s defenses with a mighty charge.
We think mounted combat is going to add a whole new level to Conan Exiles’ PvE and PvP gameplay and we’re excited to hear what you think.
We’re also adding a leveling system for Pets and Thralls that can follow you. Leveling a Follower grants them increased stats and special bonus Perks.
When placing a Follower, they start at level 0 with a base set of Attributes. Faction and Tier determines growth rate and base Attributes, to make sure similar pets and thralls won’t be exactly the same. You can check your Follower’s Attributes by selecting “Info” from the radial menu.
Killing enemies when a Pet or Thrall follows you will grant them experience points. Crafting, exploration and other activities will not. Pets/thralls will only gain experience points when they are following you. Pets/Thralls will gain perks as they level up, which will further enhance their capability and grant bonuses to Attributes. The more specialized the Perk, the greater the bonus.

So after giving it much thought over and talking to people, I am not doing the Star Wars Fan comic.  Not even an idea to even do a fan video game cause apparently no matter what, if there is something related to Star Wars, I will get in trouble.  That being said, I will have to wait til someone grows a set of ca'hones and tells Disney to basically go F'off and say they need to just get rid of the three movies and go back to Legends Canon.  But I digress that is not what this thread is about.

Instead of me doing something of that nature, I need to find something to keep me busy and my mind at ease.  However, I am at a loss on what to do.  So, I thought I'd maybe develop a video game of some sort that people may enjoy.

Problem is:  I do not know what would be the best course of action.  So many types of video games have been done over the years that have either been done too many times or in different ways but still same idea.

My thinking is this:  try to do something that is beyond different and something that people will say "wow, that is something I have never tried before".

The poll I am posting is a multiple choice poll, so pick whichever ones you think would be beneficial.

Here is the kicker: the ones with the most votes will be the idea I will try to concoct up for as a video game.  Meaning I will take the top 3 possible ideas and mix them together to make a brand new indie video game.

I will leave a choice for other cause some ideas I put on as choices people may not like.

Update:  I will leave this thread open and see when the time is right to see what main 3 won.

Also if anyone wants to pin this, I would very much like that so it don't get pushed back to the back pages.  Thank you in advance.

Ok...Guys I hate to say this but...I am getting rid of the video game idea.  Here is why:

1.  I do not have the amount of time to invest in a Video game such as doing something from the ground up.

2.  This would be solo cause I can't afford to have more help and also I WILL not make people work on something they do not want to.  I am NOT that kind of person.  Will not be mean.

3. I finally realized my calling.  It's not video games but Tabletop Games.  Why? Video games just let you sit at a computer or console.  With tabletop top games you can do online OR you can get out and go places to meet people.

Sorry everyone.  This is my decision.  If anyone wishes to close down this thread. Please do so.  Again I'm sorry for this inconvenience everyone. My deepest apologies.
