You find red tree bla bla bla, you get red seeds from it and u want to plant it, you plant seeds and u have to wait 10 minutes till it grow [10 minutes in real life] and after it grow u can do XXXXXXX with it
"Endymion" said:TRUE. That linearness suxx. But IMHO, alien was originally the most boring character. Difficulty is... mm... arguable - melee fighting is not very cool in N, so I notice that now that I've speedtested all races, I see alien as the slowest (and thus - as the worst :/).
When I play as alien I barely ever notice is it night or day since you max out night vision so early I'd much rather get some other abilities before I max it.
"Endymion" said:Fat. Am I the only one who doesn't like how it sounds?
Also fat system from werivar expansion would be neat as an additional requirement for aliens leveling as long as it has limits on amounts that can be stored and other adjustments.

Do u have MSN?
The reason I asked you about your plans on this mod is quite simple. So that everything fits it nicely, all the contributors must have the same, clear vision of the project. This goes to everything - games, mods, and all...
However, since you tell us nothing , here are some of my [random] ideas.
1. 2 worlds
a) if you don't need the second one to walk through, then what's the point? Gaining munch-keen overpower? This is (IMHO) the main question and needs to be answered before proceeding onward with making the 2nd world
b) space trips - create spaceship texture, way to go. Quite banal, alas...
c) time machine - why stupid? This may show, for example, life species evolution (like your red aliens and trees), additional story backbone, place for getting new items, ...
d) gate to 2nd world - hello, Driftmoon . Just for that I wouldn't make it so. But it's up to you to think it over
e) building warp to 2nd world - I don't quite clearly get how this is different from the gate to 2nd world
f) inborn or achievable natural ability to swap between worlds [EDIT: at any time, or almost any time](like in Soul Reaver where the 2nd, astral plane, was always dark, creepy, with other monster types and all surroundings recognizable but twisted, changed in some weird way, allowing to go where the real world was unpassable)
a) oginal armor thing in N isn't quite good. I can remember it always had fixed value in Werivar Exp., that made android same as human after he used it for the 1st time. Lame. I can remember someone wrote about it, here:
"OthobRithol" said:However, I'm missing actual code snippet...
I figured out how to incrementally increase armor (yeah, I missed that little note in bars.dat where it said that altering the temp bar or the armor bar effects the actual value) so The Android will now be able to upgrade his armor directly.
b) right now major changes in it looks like this: in default you could wear the armor via inventory (I prefer setting quick key in items.dat) and constantly drain your energy, forgetting to take it off after battle punished you with lame energy loss. In Werivar, it takes no energy, so you can use it infinitely. So now the question rises about how does a Power Armor function without power . I'd like it drain energy only when hit, and maybe the more punch more energy drain
c) theme reference. What is your mod's world, exactly? Future, past, both? Maybe different usable armor in different time periods in case of using 1.c)
3. Weapons, balance. As you've said, you wanna balance everything out. And weapons are quite a question for it.
a) melee vs ranged. This is always so hard . Right now you'll need to decide, firmly and right away, will you include both melee and ranged attacks as main ones in the mod?
b) If yes, there are 2 questions:
b) I) How to make them worth a while, not like someone with Starsword vs Dire Reaper in Werivar Exp.?
b) II) How to make decent graphics for it? The way how Starsword worked in Werivar Exp. looks awful, sorry to say it...
c) If not, everything is plain and simple . Maybe some straight restrictions for 2 different worlds, like hi-tech doesn't work in the 2nd or something, see for yourself
P.S. I'm back!
