    Bodies remain and are inspectable



    Bodies remain and are inspectable

    Hey again

    Was just playing the thing and thought up a cool idea; What if bodies remained after they were killed and were inspectable by the players?

    You could inspect a body and see whether they were killed by a marine (+whether it was flamethrower/rifle/explosives) or by the thing. Would add another element to the gameplay.

    The Thing consumes the living (not corpse). Although this will help in finding out who TK'd who, (serial numbers on bullets maybe?)

    Good point. Perhaps serial numbers is too definite though .. just knowing that the player was killed by another survivor and not the thing would help players be able to investigate/decieve others.

    I was thinking something more like;

    player was shot by gunfire -> "the body is riddled with bullet holes"
    burnt by flamethrower -> "the body appears to be torched"
    blown up by dynamite -> "the body appears to have been blown to pieces"

    Another good question is whether the player name of the dead player should be revealed (could be done in the form of identification cards to maintain realism) .. as some people pretend to be another player as a form of deception. What do you think?

    i dont like it so much finding if the person was killed by a human or not.... it kinda ruins all the fun of the actual challenge of finding who it was, i know its not easy right now, but some people find it fairly easily while others have no clue and point fingers randomly

    I know this is old, but I agree with being able to inspect bodies. Sometimes it is difficult to tell the color. Maybe just make it when we press alt, the color shows for deadbodies too.
