(Unofficial)Suggestion Links Megathread
This is a redirection thread that exists to collect all of the Suggestion ideas in one point.
This should make it easier to sort and discuss them as well as make them easier to find.
Assuming Eric approves, it would be useful as a sticky.

Disclaimer: This thread is not created or maintained by VENT. The order the suggestions are placed in and the comments around them should not be taken as an official stance by VENT, those are just design choices by a forum user.

Warning: Please keep discussion of the content of the threads to the threads themselves, this thread is only intended to host and discuss the links themselves, not suggestion discussion.

Ive excluded suggestion i cant clearly understand and most that im 100% sure are already implemented. Items where there is ambiguity if they are implemented yet are labelled as such.

If you know of any suggestions you would like to see on this thread, post below it or PM me. As my signature says, i can be found on the IRC whenever i'm online in the VENT forums.
I would also like to know if the categories are ok. I mostly just tried to keep the categories fairly small, so they may not be overly useful.

A Bracket around the link shows that thread deals with multiple topics. This is usually something we should avoid(suggestion threads should only contain one subject) but it does happen accidentally on occasion.

    • R&D Vehicle Design
    • R&D Component Design
