I think it would be possible to bring Bain back as a contractor and replacing Shade. We already have a good start because Bain has a lot of voice lines and given that AI is a thing now, we can fill in the missing dialogs to match with Payday 3 heists. What do you guys think?
While it is entirely possible, I have to ask, does anyone really want this or is there any point to doing so? Everyone grew attached to Bain so changing the main contractor to someone else does feel weird, I feel the same. But always updating the mod for every little new detail or new heist they release is an immense task for a seemingly niche group of people that would actually like this. Finding all the relations to the main contractor would also be a pain in the butt, since its not just replacing Shades voice with Bain, but actually changing the whole persona. Every time someone mentions Shade they should mention Bain instead.
Also, we don't really know whats in the future. There could be a canon event later on that would pretty much fuck up everything about the mod, like a reminiscence to older heists, just like there were quite a few of those in Payday 2.
Or think about how Bain has "ended" canonically. He died of the disease and got his soul transfered into the presidents body, meaning that Bain is technically still alive, and there could be a relation between the gang and his new persona later down the line.
+1 Not to mention that Shade is also in the cutscenes between heists which would also feel weird to hear a man talking when the camera pans to Shade :)
Nonetheless, knowing how far do some of the moddevs go, I'm pretty sure someone is going to make something like this sooner or later.
While it is entirely possible, I have to ask, does anyone really want this or is there any point to doing so?
