I'm making a module for Neverwinter nights that will rock. So far it's taking me 2 days and I am still learning as I go in more depth.
The scripting or placing takes little effort. I just take a long time with ideas. :)

BTW Morrowing runs beutifull on my system at 1024x768 32bpp and AI distance and shadows and view distance set to lowest and 4xs AA on with 2x aniso. 1024x768 with QAA and 2x aniso runs even better (with halfway view distance). I always keep AI slider lowest otherwise enemies come from 50ft away and attack me which annoys the piss out of me lolz.

Couldn't really get into NWN as much as I did with Dungeon Siege...Then I had to re-format, and never re-installed it...dunno, should I put it back on and give it another try?

I heard NWNs single player campaign sucked, and you might as well wait for the mods.
I had lots of fun with DS, though, and AM waiting for the mods :)

Played it a bit, then uninstalled! :D

How is it compared to dungeon siege? Im currently hooked playing it online and some of the mods people are making! There are starwars mods and someone is even making a men in black mod for it:eek:

Think I might pick up a copy since im really getting into RPG games now, they are just more satisfying that FPS and other games:)

I donno...

I honestly liked Dungeon Siege more than I did NWN...

They're both good games, but I still prefer FPS! :D

I think the main problem with dungeon siege is its lacking in things to do at times, its still really fun but hopefully it will get some official mods which add other perspectives to the game. It should be made a bit like runescape, a weird online rpg where you have crafting smithing mining you can made your own weapons and armor with enough skill:)

Morrowind is nothing special...

Sure, it's pretty (especially the pixel shaded water), but I just couldn't get into it...

Maybe RPG's are just not my style of game...

well everyone has their favourite:) I prefer RPG's myself just because of the levelling aspect to it you have to increase your skills to use new items. I love that kind of gameplay and its highly addictive:cool:

Morrowind is bloody addictive.

This is as much as I currently have in my NWN module :)

Skill building in FPS involves...actual skill :p
As to Morrowind, I hated the presentation of the game...and the story to boot.
As to Dungeon Siege I'm almost positive it'll have some unique mods
s'what I get for being a DS site reporter, y'know

I've been hoping to get NWN and Warcraft 3, but, at $50-60 each it's painful to think about. Of course these games had to come out after I locked away the credit card. The girlfriend is taking much joy in this, too. :rolleyes: I saw Fallout: Tactics in a $5 bin, I may go play around with that for a while instead. Hehe.

$50 I can understand...kind of a requisite these days...but $60? Ask me if I'd pay that. Or don't bother. Hah.

Fallout Tactics is a cool game, I spent a lot of time playing that.

Exact same thing happened to me. I imagine that playing through the tutorial again will be both boring and a headache.

Thats one thing I dont like in games, a huge ass tutorial that you cant skip:mad:

SavagePaladin

I think tutorials are totally lame, flipping through a manual is quicker.
If you're gonna have a tutorial, why not disguise it as a mission and actually have something that isn't stupid? :p

Maybe you should examine the complexity of the game and think about how hard it would be to make such a huge world. Every boulder is hand placed you know. How much more effort did it take to create Morrowind than any other game? I don't like it either, but it commands a certain amount of respect.

If you drink and post your posts look like gibberish.
Anyway I much prefer NWN over MW.
