View Full Version : If Animus Hacks are back.....what Hacks would you want?!

So I found the animus hacks in AC3 confusing at first. But once I then got them all it was kinda cool. For example to strike enemies down and then to hear thunder and lighting every time was quite fun.

So if they were to return to ACIV, what hacks (fun or realistic) would you like?

I'll start off,

I'd like there to be a hack which basically surrounds the ship in fog and mist wherever it goes. I know it sounds strange, but it would look pretty badass.

The ability to spawn a flying machine at any time.

I liked the WeatherMan, Season Changer, Sun & Moon, Thunder Kill and Ninja!

I never even used the Animus hacks because they were so confusing. If they bring back cheats, I hope they will make them easily unlockable and locatable like in ACB.

I would like a weather/season hack and something really silly like the glowing lightning swords and unicorns from ACB. I don't expect horses in AC4, but maybe whales could turn into narwhals and sharks into sea monsters or something.

Maybe some actual cheats, like a flying Jackdaw

I know it's a bit weird and maybe complex, but I hope they'd rehash Connor's TOKGW powers and put them into AC4. Imagine how awesome it would be to be an eagle flying over the stunning vistas of AC4? It's just a cool way of implementing a flying camera to better appreciate that graphical beauty of the game. It's too much work for a cheat, but I can dream.

Season change, Day/night cycle and weatherman!

Although I would REALLY llike the option of "freeze" the current weather/hour conditions. I love Constantinople during sunset, would not be awesome to "stop" and play as much time as you like on that condition?

Exactly, I agree! I loved the Flying Machine easter egg in AC3! It was one of my best moments in AC3.

Each AC game should have had the ability to turn into an eagle and fly through the cities/forests/over the oceans. With each Eagle looking different to adapt to the Assassin's age and appearance.

A cheat in the same vein as Thunder Kill, except instead of a thunderbolt you just hear Leonardo saying "How Exciting!"

And what ever happened to Big Head Mode? (Or maybe a pointless 'turn into a washing machine' cheat like Banjo Kazooie. XD)

For one, the Ninja hack should return. The experimentation it allowed was great. The big new one I'd like would be making enemy sight fields visible. Since they're so large it would be difficult to integrate into normal play, but a cheat could be just the excuse they need. Oh, and this isn't a hack, but it would be a huge missed opportunity if the kraken doesn't make its grand reappearance in this game.

Corey May is the Kraken fanatic though, and he's not working on AC4. Still, it would be a good Easter egg for a pirate game, even disregarding its AC history.

Where there is some strange octopus/squid like creature in an italian crypt during the XV century, which does not even make sense at all haha.

Exactly!

I mean, I do not see the big deal of the "historic accuracy" after all, they included that creature in a completely non sense context! Besides it is not a main mission, it would be a easter egg

If you scope a particular place during some time you get to see a giant snake or something......

But we do need a sea monster, whether it be rick ross or megladon we need something.

Day/night hack is likely a given as is unlimited ammo. Weather may be a bit more iffy. How many weather variations are there in the Caribbean? Sunny and rainy? No snow which is a shame considering how much work went into the AC3 snow. Doubt there's hail. Storms, hurricanes, and tornadoes/water spouts are really all that can be done without getting outrageous. God mode for Edward and the Jackdaw is likely, too.

Without stepping on Disney's toes, perhaps something Jack Sparrow related like putting Edward in Jack's outfit. Or perhaps you can make Edward walk with a drunken swagger like Jack. I'd even settle for some random drunk saying he rode some turtles to get off an island after being stranded. Be funny if Edward shakes his head and says the man's obviously drunk. Did get Faulkner in AC3 who was modeled after Gibbs and even voiced by the actor, so why not something Jack related for Edward? Or bring in a monkey named Jack that steals something of Edward's like some coins or one of his guns. Would say hat, but he doesn't have one. You get the option to shoot it and no matter how many times you hit it, it never dies. :p

I did find the unicorns in ACB rather funny. So maybe something similar. Maybe turn the whales into narwhals or maybe give horns to the dolphins. Or make the crew of the Jackdaw wear clown outfits or perhaps dresses. :D

Having a hack for sea monsters might be fun or at least an Easter egg. We know giant and colossal squids attack whales and ships, and we only recently discovered they're real and not the imagination of crazy sailors who spent too many days at sea. And if the recent look into megalodon this past year is any indication, that might be very much alive today, too. So perhaps a colossal squid vs megalodon Easter egg showdown. And can't have pirates without mermaids. Granted, they were likely manatees, and sailors were just so desperate after not seeing women for so long along with scurvy, etc that they started to see things, but still. Such a missed opportunity if these aren't in the game somewhere. The mermaid is rather fantastical to put in unless it's during a sequence where Edward's marooned and starts to see things from dehydration or something (a mermaid who looks like Caroline and another like Anne Bonny might be funny), but the colossal squid isn't since it actually exists. Megalodon, until more is known, may be a bit fantastical, but it might not be, either.

AC is already TOOOO easy, to allow save you using hacks like man of steel or ninja.....

Because I was able to save with the weather and day/night hacks.

Something that would work for everyone is keeping the ability to save after using aesthetic cheats like Weather and seasons...
