    When detecting corpses, will it give the info on all the people who looted or just the last?
  2. You'll know who killed(got the count) and everyone that looted.

    Would be nice if they actually made something useful out of this skill. I mean the basic idea is interesting, knowing who killed who, and they could create some content on it.

    Only thing it is really good for is stratics reporters. It is nice when they use this skill for fel events. Adds to the story. Unforntunately they are usually dead and cannot use it.

    An idea for the Forensic Evaluation skill:

    Improve trophy making.
    Right now only 7 animals (orc, gorilla, troll, brown bear, polar bear, great heart, and certain fish) can be turned into trophies. If you evaluate them you get the message 'You review the corpse and find it worth of a trophy'.
    But you don't need forensic evaluation to actually make the trophy. The value of these trophies is less then the price of the taxidermy kit used to make them, because they are too easy to make.

    How about:
    In order to make a trophy out of a taxidermy kit; you first need to evaluate it.
    Make it a low percentage that any animal/monster is worthy of a trophy.
    Give us lots more monsters to make trophies out of with Taxidermy Kit.
    The harder/rarer/cooler the monster the lower the percentage should be and the higher your forensic evaluate skill should be.

    Exceptional trophies idea:
    'You review the corpse and find it worth of an exceptional trophy'.
    Taxidermy kits would make these into a bigger statue like trophy.
    Maybe make them dyeable, or have forensic evaluation data on the mouse over: killed by, date, weight.
    Make the percentage to find exceptional trophy corpses extremely rare!
    Must have GM Skill to find and make exceptional trophies.

    Another idea for Forensic Evaluation:

    How about special loot drops!!!

    'You search the corpse and find ____'

    Maybe the higher your skill, the rarer the drop or frequency of non rare items.

    These were great ideas, and its ridiculous that it went almost 2 yrs without any responses.
