Don't know if my post got deleted, or if it even went through. Gonna try again because I'd love for my ideas to be heard.

-More preset slots. Instead of 12, maybe about 20 or more? If you decided to go ahead and scrap my other ideas, and yet keep this one, I'd love you forever.

-More head/body models. Like, for instance, you can switch from the default head to something more akin to a domestic cat?

-A "Slope" slider. At the highest point on the slider, the character has a hyena-like stance with long forelimbs and short hindlimbs. At the lowest, it's the opposite. Longer hindlimbs and shorter forelimbs like a clouded leopard. (I'd suggest you look up both of these animals so you can see what I mean.) At default, the model looks normal, like it looks now without such a concept in the game.

-Maybe make the 'claws' mod a function in the game? And give people the option to enable/disable them.

- A fur particle thing, makes the characters look actually fluffy. Also comes with an option to enable/disable them, since a lot of peoples' computers would be completely unable to handle it.

-If you can't do the fur particles all over the body, maybe switch the manes to a sort of fluffier mesh? Instead of being one solid mass, maybe replace it with something more akin to the fluffy mane? Except it doesn't have that weird, see-through quality.

-A lion-like mane for the canine model? Maybe it could be in the tuft category, and you could add on your own mane (mohawk, side, eyecover, flame, ecta) if you wanted instead of already having a mane be part of the package?

-Another full mane for the feline model, but this one doesn't have that bunch of hair that goes over the face. Instead it's like the forward/half-forward mane, and has some hair fluff sort of above the forehead? I feel like this would be a bit more realistic than the full manes we currently have.

-Add official saberteeth to the game instead of having it be items. Like, have there be a category where you could go and pick out what saber-teeth you'd like. Either there could be multiple sets of teeth, or a slider. Preferably, if there's a slider, there should be two instead of one. One for tooth length, one for tooth width. Considering there's multiple types of saber-toothed cats/saber-toothed animals in general, and many have their own distinct-looking teeth. Considering how saber-toothed cats like smilodon are literally my favorite animals, this is another thing that if added to the game, I'd be over the moon about.

-Sounds for weather, like rainfall during a rainstorm, and wind during a blizzard or sandstorm. Also, make lightning a thing. And an aurora weather particle would be awesome. So, instead of a mesh that's constantly visible, we can have auroras that only show up part of the time. It seems like too much to ask at this point, but if you could make said aurora particle only visible at night, it would add a new layer of realism/all-around-awesome to the game. I often make maps in my spare time, and I'd love to see this added. Especially the aurora one. I'd probably scream.





I can't think of anything else, but chances are I'll edit this. I doubt you'll reply, but I'd love to see confirmation that my ideas have been taken note of by someone with actual game-changing power here. I've been thinking about this list all day, and this is what I've come up with for now. I would not be surprised if I edit this at least once before you get the chance to read it. Thank you so much!

Preset pack(s) are still a work in progress. I have a lot of procrastination to get over.
PFP is not by me. Hey, that rhymed!

marking idea:
switch markings such as canines being able to use some markings that only felines can wear (jaguar markings etc) and felines to wear more the canines wear like the husky markings

same with manes, maybe allow canines to use feline manes and felines to use canine manes

Make FH bigger, in other words possibly add in existing maps other players made that are currently downloadable (with their permission obviously)
saves people downloading them and gives new comers a big world to get lost in when exploring

Every sound is replaced with various screams and/or goat bleats.

In all seriousness though, my favorite/best idea I have? A map maker similar to terrain editing in something like Unity or- don't laugh- Roblox. Having brushes for texture and a more 3D ability to make maps rather than a basic black and white image would be amazing. Think of ledges, tiny burrows in a non-cave map, etc. I know someone suggested something similar or basically the same though.

In addition, a way (either in the map maker or object maker) to loop a texture on a mesh to make it finer and not stretchy if it's a fairly big or largely scaled mesh.

Another, much smaller, similar idea to what might've already been suggested, but something I thought about, is different feet. Paws, talons, hooves, webbing, etc, with a size function too. Maybe even a hair/mane like setting that goes over the feet, similar to a Clydesdale horse?

I got lots of future updates ideas for Feral Heart and I would like to show them all to you!


More preset slots:

Have more than 12 presets? More presets will be good to fit them all. Maximum preset slots will be changed from 12 to 30 will be enough.

Be able to show characters' wings when making movie clips:


Want your character to fly in your movie clips? Showing characters' wings in movie clips will be useful for making movie clips in air.

Be able to have invisible wings option when making characters that doesn't use a preset:

It will be cool if this option was added to Feral Heart so characters can fly without needing wings like some superheroes in movies. Normally your characters can have invisible wings when making presets but it will be easier if the invisible wings option is in the wings option, along with angel and bat wings.

Be able to choose your characters' gender:

If this option was added, your characters can be a male or a female. Male and female characters will have different features, such as if you are making a female feline character, you won't get the full mane option (female lions don't have mane around their neck) and if you are making a male feline character, you get the full mane option.

Be able to see everyone’s presets in game without preset sync:

If this was added, you can see everyone’s presets in game without needing preset sync or putting someone else’s presets in your presets folder.


So that's all my ideas for future updates for Feral Heart. Hope you like them all!

You know how there's an 'Object Maker' function in the creative den?

What about an "Item Maker", which would be more like ... typing in the name of the mesh, selecting which body you're tailoring it for, the bone selection menu, and roll, up down left right ect buttons.  Defaults to the last entered body position if you didn't tailor it for the other body(s)
Bonus points if you can add scale option that retains existing scale when scale is not declared .items.cfg, but that sounds like hard work.
Sorry i'm evil, its not on purpose..

Alright, sure, here's some ideas lemme just throw at the wall

Character/Customization stuff:
-*Complete revamp of the character customization screen*, especially in ways that would make it easier to manage sorting through the massive amounts of mod markings/items. The scrolling right now is incredibly finicky even on lists that arent super huge. You could improve the scrolling (maybe so it's more smooth and doesnt just skip to the next item), or make them into mini pages that you click through. Perhaps even add previews. You could even have the camera focus on whichever area you're customizing.
-Multiple layers of markings.
-Being able to more easily copy a color to another part.
-Horns/antlers/saber teeth/body spikes and spines that are actual colorable parts.
-Colorable items.
-Every part of the eye is colorable, pupil, iris, sclera.
-More and better mane/tail/ear/wing options. And more variety, like long manes, curly manes, manes with flowers and items in them, ponytails, etc. Fish tails, rabbit ears. Different styles of bird wings and insect wings and more fantasy looking wings.
-Updated character models, part models, textures, and animations. (especially the wings).
-Domestic cats and dragons
-Different "stances" and walks to give more personalty to your character, like a lowered head and drooping tail for a downtrodden character.

Gameplay:
-Questlines and a battle system for both PVE and PVP and things like skill trees, similar to a traditional mmo.
-Personalized character stats and skills, for uses outside of battle? Like one stat lets you move quicker.
-Hunting for food, perhaps you dont need it to live but it'll give a bonus? Could have things like stalking your prey, or anything more engaging than like the IT "hunting" system.
-Making dens/personal homes that you can invite your friends to, or other people can just visit if its not private.
-Collecting items for decorating your home. Maybe they can be collected from harvesting natural materials from trees/bushes/rocks/etc. Perhaps they can be crafted into even more advanced looking stuff? Or u can just lay down a bunch of flowers you collected in ur house. Perhaps there are rare items that take more dedication to obtain.

Misc:
-Shaders! Dynamic lighting! Perhaps you can turn it on/off.
-Being able to open a big map where you can save waypoints for places you like.

- An indicator to show when someone is typing (a bubble graphic or just their name changing colors etc), and maybe an afk icon/color for idlers.

- Snap-to points and resizable (in gui) minimap. Instead of e-keying across a map, click a point on the minimap and zips u there. Fast travel functionally. Option to add your own. If it's a worry, add watermark over the minimap to avoid heightmap theft. 

- Figuring out a way to have various marking/item packs NOT overwrite eachother (or show different items). For example if user1 has a special marking pack, and user2 doesn't, it just shows as marshmallow for user2 rather than some other marking that happens to be in the same spot on user2's list (if that makes sense). For items it would just simply not appear (duh)

-Optional/selectable Textures. Like markings, have various textures be selectable per-character instead of being stuck at a single default. Like the eyes, but for the entire body/tail etc.
