Hello! I love what Beamdog has been doing with the IE games, but had a few requests. (I'm sorry I won't get to play IWD2EE, I prefer 3rd edition to 2nd!)
I did have a few feature requests, though, that would drastically improve my experience and I think would improve that of others.
First, would be nice if, on BG:EE there was a way to see travel times on the World Map. I recently gave the EET a try (the 2.5 update broke it) and the map included with that has travel times to each section, not just major settlements. This was great for a roleplayer like me - I try to only sleep at night, so arriving at a map at 8am after a 24 hour journey means some way or another I have to break versimilitude. (Seriously, I run Skyrim with food/water/sleep requirement mods, economy nerfing mods, and even learning spells requires hours of study. If I could get all that in BG I would...)
Second, it always annoys me that if I have 6 people and pick up someone new, I immediately had to kick someone from my party. Like, "Sorry, Neera, I want you along, but Branwen here needs revenge on Tranzig. I'll find you at the Friendly Arm Inn after we kill him and I give her the boot." I realize there was a time crunch before launch and the problem goes deep into the engine and all the scripts, but GemRB has included it in their engine now and it is apparently largely functional. Is this something that could eventually be worked on as part of an engine update? (Honestly, I want that more than a "Loot All" button.)
Thanks for the awesome game!
