View Full Version : New Way Of Searching For Collectables

This basically is an idea for any upcoming Assassin's Creed games. (A suggestion)

I found the flags in Assassin's Creed I to be quite hard to find. Well, at least all of them.
I think many people can agree with me on that.

In Assassin's Creed II, there were no flags, but feathers, which were less, and thus easier to find (all). As for the treasure chests, you could just buy maps/charts to see them on your minimap.

And thesame now goes for the flags, feathers and chests in the latest Brotherhood game.

Though I must say it's not annoying or hard to find all of the collectables in these last 2 games, it's actually rather easy. Maybe... too easy. :3
I find it to be cool to just not buy the maps/charts and search for everything myself untill I can't find anymore.

So to make it a little bit harder, but not too hard, I would suggest a mechanism (or a weapon with some sort of mechanism) that tells you whenever you get close to a flag/feather/treasure, etc. Much like the multiplayer indicator. (But ofcourse you would first have to get closer to a collectable, then use the item/weapon to see if there are any near you.

Let the treasure hunting begin!

additional ideas/improvements on idea:
Maybe instead of something visual like in the multiplayer it could be something like a little flash when you enter a (...) meter range of a collectable, or a sound of a bird. Then you could go search for it, and when you get really close you'd hear the sound you hear now when you're in range of one.


Let me know what you think of this idea!

Depending how implemented but I'm afraid it'd clutter my HUD. I'd rather have some kind of notification: "1 more flag/feather remaining in this area" - something like that. At least I would know whether to re-do this district of Venice/Rome or go to Tuscany etc.

That sounds a little bit silly.

I like collectable as much as the next guy(With rewards of course!), but the device you are taking about doesn't sound so promising.

We have the maps, that 'oh so sweet' sound indication when you are near a treasure/collectable, the DNA section and EV to help us. What more do you want? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

The problem with the sound indication and Eagle Vision is (when not using maps too see the treasures etc. ofcourse) that you mostly only hear the sound when you just happen to pass by it. So with that, you just need luck, no skill involved except for paying attention to sudden sounds. And I usually check with eagle vision on roofs, but most treasures and flags are located behind a wall, on a ledge, etc. and I miss them most of the time. (When they are not on obvious places, like a top of a pillar)

Maybe instead of something visual like in the multiplayer it could be something like a little flash when you enter a (...) meter range of a collectable, or a sound of a bird. Then you could go search for it, and when you get really close you'd hear the sound you hear now when you're in range of one.
