@Shauneok this is the same that i thought. i made a thread about my idea in the past and will post it in here again^^ I hope everything is understandable, english is not my first speech and i tried my best to make it readable.:)
In my opinion, tarkov has a realy good ai similar to other games, with the same game style.
and in meaning that the scavs tended to be and handle like ''real'' player, one day, it would be perfect to introduce a harder pve mode in to the game. espicially because the instructions coming, in meaning the new features for the offline mode. and with this two points and the main gameplay, it could be the perfect base for an hardcore pve coop mode. Same as normal online, just with some speciall changes.
you could decide in between 4 different coop modes - solo - duo - trio and quad. than for example, if you pick duo, you would create a private game save for this two player. and this means, you would have accses, to the same inventory and just you and your mate could play with this save. like in the standart online, you can choose what you wanna bring in with you, and you can loose it as normal. with the basics of the online mode and the introdution of the ai, the game mode would be build up by it self.
now two big things that missing are, the loot and the other good and geard guys. and for this, your thoughts of the scavs bosses with theire group, could be the squad from online that is challenging you, on the way to the exit.
for loot you could still take the old places like, dorms, complex woodfeller and the check points. just a bit changed. with way more scavs and may a bit defending house upgrades.
so that, it would look like a private area, under the controll of scavs.
it would be really hard to get int to it, but you could find there many rare items like, good weapons armor and medical.
the standart scavs with different mods on theire weapons, some with an b10 tt1000 bud stock ak, others with pk06 and the mlock etc. So that you can build the weapons up to your own preferings.
To make it more challenging the traders could just sell most things for barter items. sometimes they make some offers over a limitied time that you can buy items for rubel euros and dollar.
i think this could make the comunity way bigger. ppl that are struggeling, ppl that wanna test and introduce with theire friends, or just to have a opinion on what they wanna do right now. the pve mode, it could be the same like online as like for ppl that are not the best and the ai will allways be a bit easier than a good player. ai never will be smart enough to think like a human. this mode could open a area for those who love the gameplay of an hardcore game and/or arent good enough to play it with its full possibilitys.
let me know what you think of it, greetings oquiz.
