Trust Officer Snake to be controversial. Barbie Dollys. http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/ubb/smile.gif The closest thing to that in my memory is the medikits in X-COM one & two where you had a choice of healing solutions to use on the patient who was displayed as a sort of dolly on a mini screen. Very cute.

If you take a peek at progress on the No2 poll well multiple endings & endgame hall of fame is doing poorly. What surprises me even more is the disinterest for an editor which is last. Never mind. That endgame statistics wish is already virtually in place as you said with your mercs personel management screen. Sirtech could go all the way and include a "Hall Of Shame" where your total reloads or even a specific daily tally were displayed. Day 70=42 Reloads Tsk Tsk. http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/ubb/eek.gif
Just needs glueing together. Great if it could be saved in a seperate folder so players were able to brag & publish their results.

Aelissa did a very detailed post about endgame options way back somewhere that discused ways a storyline could change throughout the game according to your actions and interactions with NPCs or lack of them. The game already has low key outcome variables in that you can screw up quests which affects loyalty or lose an NPC like Jake then have no accesss to fuel or get Skyrider killed & have no chopper sort of stuff but I guess your thinking along a more involved in depth unfolding storyline which could branch into different directions depending on your actions maybe "Fallout" style along with a suitable variety of endgame scenes & ratings.

This sort of thing would be more than possible if some of those "multiple factions" options were enabled such as having a militia, rebels, police, black marketeers, political groups etc all being an integral part of a game where diplomacy & alliances were crucial to the overall strategy not just a slog to the capital.

Of all the things I've ever lost I miss my mind the most.
