Hiya Strat!  Welcome back!

I just now learned that you had returned!

I'm ok with 0 day DLC, as long as it is OPTIONAL material.

Meaning that one does not need it to play and finish the game.

As one does not need it to play and finish DA, I think that it is a fine addition to the game.

My question about the DLC is how is the revenue going to be spent?  Will it be used to produce extra XPs and Patches for the game, or is it going to line pockets as profit?

I find that a much more important question, because one could support the game by purchasing DLC for it if the proceeds went towards more XPs and Patches (much like the Premium Mods for NWN).

But if it is to line pockets, then it would be better to avoid purchasing it, because as FA has pointed out, if it becomes a "successful model" then one will start seeing more and more of it.

And it will not take long for someone to say "hey, why not offer DLC that will be REQUIRED in order to complete the game?"

And then the cat is out of the bag.

General Discussion / So now that DA is out...what plans, oh PRC Team?

DA is out (and me likeys, oh yes, me likeys!).

So what plans do you have for DA, PRC Team?

How about some noise here?

A bit of glare and blare, perhaps an announcement that something is in the works, etc?

And since this is a Bioware IP, are you going to be allowed to actually ask for money here?

Actually, I think that keeping DA:O comparisons with NWN out of the picture is probably a smart thing to do.

Obviously DA:O is not supposed to be a NWN type game.  It is a RPG, but the game itself is not like NWN.

Comparing it with NWN will just bring up what DA "lacks" which is just not true - DA is designed and made according to how Bioware wants it to - one could perhaps critik DA along the lines of the IP itself (and perhaps controls and handling, etc), but that is about it.

It is a seperate type of game than NWN is.

Now, many may be waiting for another NWN aka NWN3, for example.  But it is beginning to look like the model that was NWN as a game is not really all that desirable from a Developer and Publisher standpoint.  Otherwise, everyone and their uncle would be doing it.

I rather suspect that the expected return does not justify the rather considerable investment of resources to make a game like NWN (SP, MP, DM Client, Server, Toolset).

I think that NWN2 has shown just what sort of difficulties can occur with the model, if it is not done carefully and thoughtfully, with the necessary resources commited to it.

A comparable NWN3 may be very long in coming.

Except that there is scaling in NWN.

Quote from: Stratovarius

I can guarantee it will be the best toolset you have run across to date for a game. Everything is there, and everything has been working on to make it faster and easier to use.

It sounds like it is everything that the Electron Engine Toolset is NOT - and that is a very, VERY good thing!

Thanks for the info, Strat!

Prestige Classes / Lich help?
« on: July 23, 2009, 03:00:21 PM »
Sounds like something is bugged in your .bic

How did you get past level 4 Lich without Soul Gems?

In order to become a Demilich you must be a level 21 caster.
Each level, you must create one soul gem in order to gain the powers for that level. You must also upgrade your phylactery. To gain the final level, you must have 8 soul gems.
Soul gems cost 120,000 gold and 4,800 exp each gem. (Use the Craft Lich Items feat to create them)

I seem to remember a sort of bug that can happen that allows you to level up too quickly (and "skips" over the Soul Gem check).  I would recommend that you level down the Lich to level 4 (or 1), then relevel it again, doing each level THEN RESTING AFTERWARDS to make sure everything fires as it should, then try to do the Soul Gem creation when required (at level 4, going for level 5).

Probably would be best, Ben.

Though to be honest, none of them I have given it to for testing have reported any problems (and not here, either).

And I haven't ran into any problems either.

AFAIK and can tell, it seems to be working wonderfully.

Feedback from the others?

Strat, how moddable does the scripting (re: Combat) seem to be?

Would it be possible to then do a 3E like version (D&D here)?

How about the GUI?  Is it moddable?

Prestige Classes / Shifter (PNP) improvements

That is a heck of a lot of what I call nice changes!

Thanks for the work.

Spells, Feats, and Skills / New Spells?
« on: June 30, 2009, 07:30:05 AM »
Spellpak 1.23 - has already been added (at least, all those new spells are already in the PRC).

KL spell system has some in the PRC (Teleport, Mass Teleport, etc).

Still, the rest of the new ones in that system would be nice!

I am currently playing Dawn of War : Soulstorm (again).

I just can't put it down, for some reason.

Might have something to do with me being a hopeless Warhammer 40K addict.  Dunno.

Tried out DoW II - it sucks.  Nice graphics, bad gameplay...really bad bugs and IMBA.

Hey!  That sounds suspiciously like another sequel we all know!

Other than that, I am still playing NWN.

I am actually looking forwards to DA:O now that the draconian DRM has been dropped.
