  • As soon as you install and run BG:EE you will probably be greeted with an update available notice. No, updates have to go through Apple. However, things have been changed so Apple would approve. So I doubt we will get version 1.0. I also doubt…
  • @MooseChangerPat: Of course! A man should dream. From now on I will refrain from quoting the devs then
  • @MooseChangerPat: Silly or not, they won't make new monsters. "In light of the above, it doesn't make much sense to request new monsters, as they won't have distinctive animations to go (and I personally believe Baldur's Gate already has enough mon…
  • @Renshtalis: Well, to be honest I wouldn't dare say I am not susceptible to any kind of persuasion. I was just giving an example. Although I currently feel very stable I am sure I have some weakness somewhere. For example I have desires and hopes...…
  • @Grog: I like this idea too. It is good to give charisma a bigger influence in the game. @Renshtalis: Although you are right that truly charismatic people can do a lot, it is more complex than that. There is also the susceptibility of the 'target'…
  • @HeroicSpur: This is a bit different though than having a quest line specifically for your class (or specifically for your player). The OP meant (if i understood correctly) giving the other players more of a story to their character. Not just giving…
  • If the devs put their limited resources into adding another quest, I'd rather see it available for everyone, regardless of whether they play single or multiplayer I completely agree. With the class specific quests it could be that way.
  • So do you mean one quest that focuses on all the other PCs in the party? In that case all the friends share one background story? That seems illogical. The plan might work if you play with one additional player, but if you plan on lan-partying the w…
  • Speaking of this, does anyone else remember the rumor about if you clicked the roll button 1000 or so times, the game would take pity on you and set all your stats to 18? Actually, Assuming 3 is the lowest and 18 the highest possible roll (and th…
  • *snip* ...and I think we've all seen what over-saturation of dragons looks like (skyrim)... *snip* The horror... THE HORROR In general: Have a bit of respect for dragons, please! A dragon should be an impressive enemy. It now seems people so des…
  • I don't think that naming the weapons yourself would be a good option, it would feel artificial, like in NWN2. I think that there is already enough weapons with names, and considering they are only +1 weapons, they should, imho, stay unnamed. Too mu…
  • I came up with a 'paired stats'-way of rolling for abilities that might be (a starting point for) a good method. It may exists somewhere already, but I don't know of a game that uses it. This is how it works: You get 3 'pairs' of statistics: 14 14 …
  • @jaysl659 I am not sure if the lore changed, but originally there was indeed only one. edit: Well... Tarrasque is off the table I guess: http://forum.baldursgate.com/discussion/1588/bgee-please-read-list-of-things-that-cant-be-done/p1
  • @sarevok57 Well, luckily in 2nd edition rules the Tarrasque cannot swallow whole All I care about though is that creatures that were meant to be impressive will be impressive in the game too. I almost cried when I saw what Skyrim did to the might…
  • @Addivest I think this is about translation of forum messages though.
  • I think there is a few more things we should take into account. 1. If I'm not mistaken the Tarrasque was designed for 2nd edition rules, before the 'DM Option:High level campains' rule book. That means the Tarrasque was designed for a world in whic…
  • As far as I know, BG:EE is still based on 2nd edition rules. That means the stats for the Tarrasque are 300hp/70HD THAC0 -5 AC -3 6 attacks dealing 1-12/1-12/2-24/5-50/1-10/1-10 (That is an average of almost 65hp per round and a max of 118hp), a b…
  • As said before the OP means that the NAME of the weapon (and possible the history) should be a bit more unique than just '+1' or '+2'. So it is not about the stats of the weapon, it is about the NAME. Instead of having a short sword +1 called 'short…
  • A better AI script system would be a great addition to the game in my opinion, especially when it comes to telling party members NOT to attack in certain situations (no ammo or spells for example) or other situations where anyone with half a brain w…
  • For those of you who wonder if it is possible to kill the Tarrasque in ToB: Just take your ToB characters + the stats of the Tarrasque + your favorite dice and roll out the fight. Out of respect for the creature I'd put my money on the Tarrasque, bu…
