Skyrim is great. Being a vampire or werewolf is awesome. Even summoning dragons is unheard of, but before the new DLC rolls out with proper customizable dragon mounts and a new land a la Shimmering Isles, there are still some small updates that I believe need to be attended to and can be achieved with relative ease!
1. Tagging People
In the wonderful land of Skyrim, people go about their lives in as natural a way as could be mustered by an algorithm. Lumberers tend to their lumber and inn keepers tend to their… well, inns. That makes it easy to locate either of these two, but what do you do if you encounter a master trainer in a skill in a town, for example, and would like to revisit him/her? Currently, if they are not part of a mission, you are expected to manually track them down, going door to door, searching every possible room as they could be hanging out anywhere in accordance with their ‘freedom’ algorithm.
What needs to be added is a feature that allows you to ask people about who you’re looking for. This need not be complex: All you do is tag a person of interest in the same way that you do a location on the map, and the next time you converse with anyone in that town, the following question would be available: “Where can I find <name of character>?”. A map of the town would open up and a marker will appear where your target is. The simpler and less interesting method is to automatically have their arrow displayed on the town’s map.
