    May already be suggested, but didn't see this on Trello at least:

    Add collapsable categories for areas, scripts and placeables for both the toolset and the DM client. For modules with hundreds and hundreds of these, it's a bit of a mess to go around in the toolset and the DM client.

    Some small things can easily improve the gaming experience.

    Enemy should die as an instant lootable remains, waiting a body transform to a remains bag for 3 second just ridiculous and anti-humanity.

    A bottom can take all item from any container.

    Transparent background construction, sometime the camera will switch and the wall or building block your sight.

    More nimble moving, switch character direction too slow, maybe push A or D can walk right or left directly, not only rotating.

    Something may not that's easy but I hope
    More class、sub-race from NWN2、more follower. like BG2EE new features.

    Better character model, as least the main npc' face should same as their portrait.

    This is not necessarily a fault of the engine but may instead be down to the module builder. There is a check box that says something like "leaves a lootable corpse" in the creatures properties in the toolset.

    So Bioware know how normal games work and made a worst decision

    I never had this issue in vanilla campaigns, in fact some of the npcs in it have lootable corpse when they die. Loot is not dropping too much in vanilla campaigns especially not in a situation where there are no other enemies to kill. And 3 seconds are close to what you ned to loot lootbag1 hence the npc you just killed will spawn lootbag2 before you finish it.

    On the other hand I saw PWs (multiplayer servers) where loot dropped from each npc and it was important to loot them all and on top of that the lootbag spawned after 10+ second. Terrible design but that is on the server not Bioware. NWN already allows to spawn lootable corpses and influence how fast/slowly will lootbag spawns (or rather corpse will fade).

    There`s 14 pages here, so possibly mentioned already:

    For Xbox One i cant heal my companion by giving them a potion, I also can`t access their inventory.

    Both of these things are possible on PC.

    I can move a potion from my inventory to the portrait of a companion, but there doesnt seem any way to give or apply it to them.

    (xbox) bind the unused left/right D-pad buttons to the free 5 foot step (strafe left/right).

    Bought EE recently, but have been a NWN player for a long time.

    - Fix Circle Kick. It gives you a free attack against an adjacent enemy, as it should, but changes your target to that other enemy, making you lose all of your attacks against the enemy you targeted before. Thus, nobody ever bothers with this feat.
    - On Ctrl-Shift-F12 the player can find options to turn off keyholing and to turn on Sticky Combat Mode. Put those in the Game Options menu instead of that obscure menu.
    - Grimgnaw is a Monk and yet he doesn't have Cleave like he's supposed to...

    There is much more that is wrong with this feat. On my PW it works this way (custom modification) and it is still considered trash feat. This won't fix it anyway. Just pretend it doesn't exists like about 20 other feats. Not every feat can be equally usefull in all possible environments anyway.

    Perhaps it's a minor change but it would be useful to expose some of the "game engine" rows used in dialog.tlk so that they can be easily changed per module in the same way that 2da references to dialog.tlk rows can be changed. Maybe put the references in a 2da and call it system_text.2da or something.

    The use case for this is to more easily allow overwriting of various engine text outputs such as initiative rolls and other combat rolls.

    Introduce market forces with merchants of supply and demand.
    What I mean here is IWD has a basic form of market forces where if you accumulate a pile of yeti pelts and dump them on the trader, the price you get for them then halves.

    [edit]Drinking ale reduces INT by 1, but, as spirits are stronger, they should reduce INT by 2 and both should affect DEX after say 3 drinks of each? Hic!

    That's easily done. A lot of NWN mods implement food systems (mine included).

    Rogues continue to unlock doors or chests after your character has smashed them. That needs fixing.

    Summoned Warhorses:

    Option for the player to mount them earlier in the radial menu, rather than have the mount command buried that deep in the menu.

    Warhorses to expand the characters carrying capacity, obviously if the horse is dismissed, all your stuff carried by the horse falls to the ground.

    Would like to see an expanding text bar function, so that when you hit enter and type, rather than your words vanishing off into the nothingness on the right side of your screen, the chat bar scrolls up one line and the text wraps, allowing you to actually continue seeing what you're typing.

    Also, while we're at it, allowing more characters per entry would be fantastic, say somewhere in the ballpark of two to three times what it is now.

    This last week I I started playing through the OC for the first time in EE, and probably since 2005. I am enjoying the new improvements of EE, and with some of the workshop content additions love some of the new looks to the tilesets. I am however rather disappointed in the damage that has been done to path finding in the game. My character and companions gets stuck at doorways, where triggers are placed, and most annoyingly trying to get around summons or other NPCs. Dungeon crawl is hampered by this as, I am finding that in order to continue, my PC needs to back track to un-stick its companion and summoned help. I hope that path finding will get some attention!

    @mlkent22 Have you tried using the command, "Follow Me", to get your henchman unstuck? I've often found it useful in situations where Tomi will start to unlock a door, only to stop in the middle of picking the lock to try running through the door in order to disarm the trap he detected behind it. Thank you for reading, and happy gaming to all.

  • mlkent22mlkent22 Member Posts: 41
    Even the "follow me" command is in effective at getting them unstuck from some of the doorways in the crypts tilesets, the bridge across pits in the forest tileset, and at times the ramps in the rural tileset. It's a walkmesh/path finding issue as 1.69 had most of these path finding issues cleaned up.
