@Golden_Syrup The only thing lacking is your understanding that this game is it's own thing, it's unique, and one of the last few games that can wholeheartedly say that with pride.
Damn near every shooter game for instance, has become a carbon copy of all the others. All the nuance they had that made them unique are gone, as they all just copy each other.
Your "improvements" are nothing more than an attempt to make this game appeal to your tastes, which will render the game a shell of its former self. You want this game to emulate aspects of Warframe, Dark Souls, and other RPG games that do not follow the aesthetic that this game is trying to offer. You lack the capacity to appreciate the unique style that this game offers, and will likely hate New Genesis just as much.
The only good idea you have had thus far, as unpolished as it was, was underwater exploration, which would potentially make sense later down the road in New Genesis itself should they choose to add it, as the game will take place on a single planet, rather than a city/gateway ship system.
When people try and politely tell you why something won't work, or won't make any sense being changed in this game, you are dismissive and off putting, which causes others to treat you the way they do. You claim to know how the lore, or characters of this game, could, and should be better, and yet you don't know, or don't respect the lore and characters the way they are.
You don't want to improve them, You want to completely remove, replace, and change them, simply because you don't like them. And with that I tell you that this is simply not the game for you, and perhaps, if you aren't happy playing this game, that you should simply stop playing it, and play a game, or series of games you do enjoy.
