Since we have so many "people" in assassins creed walking on the streets it woudnt be bad to see some dogs, cats and different types of birds, when you go the a viewpoint the eagle or falcon flyes around, but thats the only time. Having people walking dogs, different breeds, street dogs, cats and birds around would make the environment much more attractive

That would only work in 2012, Desmon Mile's time.
But I think he's stuck in the animus, don't you think?

There are pigeons too, but you're right, there should be more variety.

You can hear a dog barking if you fire the hidden gun on the rooftops in AC2.

I guess it's a question of usability, the pigeons, eagles and horses all serve a purpose, what purpose would cats and dogs running around serve? Speaking from a practical, not just esthetic POV. Unless the guards were using attack dogs, in which case, you'd have to be able to kill them to stop them attacking you (it's easier to loose persueing humans than it is to loose pursueing dogs), of course, Ubisoft would never do that, because the Censors and Animal Welface Carrities would be all over them for simulating animal cruelty.

I'm not against adding more animals, in fact, i'd love to see dogs running around, but like I said, they'd have to be a practical reason they're there, even the inanimate objects in the game serve a purpose.

I only saw environment like what you mentioned in The Witcher game and I brought up this idea while they were developing AC2, so I doupt they will listen now specially that they are close to finishing ACB now

Not sure if i got u ThyMolizzo, dn't think there is a reason for dogs and cats being absent around 1400.

AnthonyA85 you are right about serving a purpose, like the dogs could be used by guards yeah, unfortunatly I don't think there would be purpose for cats or birds. But at least birds, you don't need to be able so select them and throw a knife ...they could jst be there coz of attractivness really. Well, I just think its a good idea, if it comes to serving a purpose probably ubi would think of sth

I did not mean they wouldn't be there. What I meant was, that it's much less likely for you to see them on a leash in that time. Don't get me wrong, I'd be all FOR stray dogs/mutts. Perhaps one of those white fluff balls could even be owned by a templar.

As for smoking, it would work better in the modern times. I don't think that a civilian smoking a pipe on every street corner would look good. Really.

There should be birds. I like the eagle motif a lot.

Dogs would be cool, both as strays and as guard dogs - why hasn't Ezio encountered a bull mastiff yet?

And screw PETA if they get on their butts about killing dogs! They're ridiculous anyways (imo)!

Pushing it a bit re. smoking. OK, the New World's just been discovered, but not sure tobacco plantations had been properly established yet - or Italian states were much of a target market. Smoked with clay pipes too.

Lol, I just had this image in my head while re-reading this topic, of Ceasere (how ever you spell his name) idly stroking a large white cat during a Templar meeting while he's sat in a chair, his face obscured, (Like Hanz Blowfelt)

And again, another Bond reference, I had this idea of Ezio confronting him, and being surounded, and this bit of dialog:

Ezio: Do you expect me to surrender?

Ceacere: No Senoire Bond, err, Auditorre. I expect you to die!

Yeah, random i know.

donnt see why they would put dogs and cats in it. everything in the game is put there for a reason. as for birds they could put some around un-manned horses that you could jump on to, but they would havee to look very different to pigeons http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

I can think of at least one reason they aren't there mostly. I mean other than your own pets or something that attacked you, could you really remember weither or not you saw some dogs 20-40 years ago? I couldn't remember that to save my life. Add in the fact that this is through the genetic memory as well and that increases the difficulty. That being said. During that time frame, you're more likely to see at dog/cat on a peasent's stove than in their yard. Only the noblity or the weathly could afford to feed an animal unless it performed a service, or even if it did. Peasents mostly looked on them as a useful source of protein

Yes, stray animals at that time would be most probably eaten.

Also, in prince of persia you had to kill birds or bats that attacked you (and wolf like sandcreatures). Why would self defence be consideted animal cruelty? I love animals but if one was attacking me and my family i would do what i had to.

Anyway, there were also some flies in AC2, in various parts of the game a saw some dirty civilians that were being attacked by flies and they were trying to get them away in something that looked like a monkey dance

Missed that - sounds fun!

Not sure cats and dogs wouln't have been appreciated in this period as excellent ratters. Later (C17), dogs were classified from 'mutts' (lowest grade street strays) up to some lord's pampered pooch, in London anyway. The lower down the scale they were, the more likely they were to be disposed of during plagues as potential carriers.

On the bigger point, I agree that if other games can more realistically / interestingly model street life without machine meltdown, why can't AC? That said, framera\te really plummets on my old thing when all they do is walk in circles.

Hey i have an idea can u control eagles and use the caucasian mountain dog as security or something. why that dog because on the t.v. it said it was as strong as a 45. caliber pistol and i have that dog at my dads work it has scared so many people and it so strong that it has broken and jumped a fence and ripped a guys foot off when he was breaking in at night

I looked up that dog! Awesome!
Couldn't find anything about them being in Rome, but in future games, if it fits in the story, heck yeah!

Maybe instead of seekers, guards could use dogs to
to sniff you out in hay or other hiding spots?

I'd like to see Ezio up against guard dogs - would make a fun new challenge IMO. Actually, they should appear in Arkham City.
