Edit: I realise I have spelt 'Honors' the British way. I am British, this is how I spell it.

At the moment the screens for the honours aren't too bad, they show all the honours that you can gain and fundamentally this is all you need.

But it would be so much better for them to be in a more of a table format with title and description (yes I know this is available if you hover of the image), the image, rarity and a progress bar. This is the most important addition that is required.

A simple progress bar that shows you how far you are to getting the honour. Right now (because you have to hover over the image) it's kind of a DIY job if you want to be able to see a list of available honours and how to get them. Of course there is probably something available in the Wiki.

The game really needs this addition because I really feel that this game has very little ambition as a player, and you really need that to be able to stick at a game. The honours provide great ambition but it barely feels like a part of the game, which of course they are, and should be.

The same suggestions apply to Medals. The pages don't even show you what medals are available, let alone your progress to reach the next one.


Please let me know what you think of this suggestion.

Thanks,
SharkByte

so we've gone from a "surprise, what you just accomplished is worth an award" to "hey, here's a list of what you need to do" and now you want to stretch that to "see that one? you're close, focus on that".

talk about dumbing down to the masses...



as for the images you talk about, they should be posted ingame, not on facebook and such. the game players, for some odd reason, are actually here and not there.

Yeah I get your point but there is just no ambition and getting honours, while I agree, are a nice surprise and feel like an accomplishment when you get one.
However, they are not something that you actually try and get along side levelling up. The honours should almost be the aim of the game. As they are in most RPGs (achievements).

I don't see the point of achievements if you don't know what you're achieving.
Also like I said, because of this they are almost in the shadows and barely feel like they are part of the game, and realistically they should be the main feature.


I'm not sure what images you thought I was talking about, however, it has nothing to do with Facebook. I'm talking about the image of the medal (or somewhat greyed out if you haven't unlocked it yet, like Honor bars)

That part was more like a side rant. I thought you meant the following image

and the other parts of the game they're updating but don't even bother to release in the game like they should

Yes that's a pretty good, I suppose it could look that, certainly better than the current view.

However, yes my main point is the progress bar. Much like you'd find the achievements in Battlefield or Call of Duty (yes I know they are very different games to Torn. But on most games achievements do have progress bars).

I think the problem is you have no inspiration to play the game

If you want to see how far you still have to go then just check your personal stats. That's easier than staff having to write the code for it

I'd rather have my award be rewarded to me unexpectedly.

Yeah I think your right.

Just look at the stats myself. However, it would be nice for them to code the Medals into the game, like Honours are. (I get Honours are a lot newer than Medals though.)
