Just something to rant about, obviously ShatteredPD is great and I still enjoy playing it after so many years…

…however! The one addition I don’t like is to use the crystal keys for so many more goodies than just the two chests rooms.

It used to be when you found a crystal key, you would immediately know there are two chests waiting for you, maybe even the crystal chest mimic. I was always excited to find those keys because it meant I would get a new hopefully useful item.

These days however, its just one of many possibilities and once you find that second or third key, you know its not the chest. I don’t dislike adding all these other options, but I like them all less than the original chests. Could there not be another key type to use for those? Like the golden ones, if it has to be an existing type. Or make the original crystal keys into something else, skull key or dragon keys or whatever. Rat king keys maybe. Please?

    I actually think its quite cool you can look inside them, so them being crystal kind of makes sense.

      I don’t mean to change the Crystal Chest pair, it’s good to be able to look inside them.

      But the other places having crystal doors, maybe maybe them into another material, like you said.

          Lots of other see through materials than crystal. Could still be nice with another color to tell the rooms apart.

          Emerald? Diamond? Glass? Or even Dark Crystal. If some denizen had the skills to make doors out of crystal, I’m sure other semi transparent materials are within reach.

            Ok, but I would only agree if they would become Amethyst door rooms.

            Also, obviously I know that other see through materials exist, but dragon isn’t that and skull is used for boss floors and real players should know that.
