And this is a perfect example of why in game assets and loot boxes to buy should be outlawed and banned. It creates a very bad environment for anyone that's invested in games like these.

I am looking forward to this and I think Cutter will like this, too.

Too antiquated. I'd rather see a new one. Plus the NWN editor was pretty cumbersome if you wanted to make anything really good. Why wouldn't they go with NWN2 at least?

You must be joking Cutter, that editor was very powerful, you got the same exact editor with nothing cut from it that the devs used to make the game. Which is how we made our two mods.

Its the best editor ive seen released for any game of this type,even that newer Sword Coast Legends editor was shit in comparison to NWN editor.

I didn't say it wasn't powerful, I said it was cumbersome and it was. You really needed a good coder to do anything of significance. Scripting things was not user friendly. NWO's editor is a lot more userfriendly by comparison. And SCLs wasn't nearly as powerful but it was more user friendly.

That's why I keep saying I want a new game in the style of NWN. I don't need a new NWN per se. I'd actually like to see it be completely customizable so you could go with system you prefer - D20, Gurps, etc. Avoid any licensing issues by using established properties and keeps the cost way down to develop it as well. Isomatric, 3D, turn-based, and DM modes would all be necessary. I'd like to see it as a glorified table top experience really. A good system for the community to take advantage of the ground up to provide additional content without any problems. That was another huge PITA with NWN. So many major works had all these custom dependencies you needed to download and install, and you'd end up with conflicts with other things. Maybe I'll just have to create a design doc and crowdfund it myself. If you could build that visions you'd make a metric shit ton of money off it.

Belive me ,I know all to well just how difficult that editor can be because of the need for scripting. But thats the beauty of it too. What your asking for is a limited editor that wont let you do very much in the way of scripting your own scripted events and cut scenes and creating your own custom placeables in the game or new tilesets

This was a major issue with Sword Coast Legends editor. You were confined on what you were allowed to do. They did not allow you to do anything close to what NWN tool-set allowed you to do.

So, yes pick your poison, ill take NWN Aurora editor any day of the week over a very limited tool set.

I made a handful of very popular 'adventure modules' for NWN, and one for NWN2. I tried to find them a few years ago to replay them but they've effectively been absorbed into the black hole at the center of the internet.

If your mods were on Neverwinter Vault, then they are here for sure. I know the guys who started this site and they imported everything to this site.

Always been a great fan of NWN but never played Hordes of the Underdark. As the Drizzt novels fan that I am today, I can't wait to give that expansion a shot! Doesn't that expansion bring you to Menzoberranzan?

Yes, it does in some parts. But not like your thinking. just a lot of the underdark areas.

This is nice to see, but rather disappointing since I know this engine very well when we created the Eye of the Beholder mods for this game. I'm not seeing much in the way of enhancements. Where are the graphical enhancements?

All I'm seeing is a 4K res update and UI fixes. They could have at least gone in and added some newer partical effects and fixed up the look of the spells.

Come on Beamdog!!!

Fucking PVP is ruining this game, taking away from development time that could be spent on adding more Areas and missions to the game.

I'm with you on this one. I love the game, but only for the co-op aspect with friends doing missions. It's really good in that sense! I suppose adding PVP is just a quick way to get more sales. But to the point of some people, if you can't implement an amazingly fun PVP experience, then put your resources on what actually makes the game fun, and that's solo/co-op missions.

No, PVP got added because a lot of people got on the UBI forums and whined about the lack of a PVP game. it took the devs 6 months to release this and its total shit, not a lot of people are playing it because the games been out to long and now you have PUG taking up everyone's time that plays PVP.

I'm annoyed as can be about them wasting all this time adding this crap mode just to try an appease some of the masses which took away from time and resources that could have added even more content to the game. Just annoying as all hell.

I only can say that I've done the beta for PvP.. and it was something this game never really needed and it's not something the game does well.
It's very much like For Honor PvP, and you can see how many people are playing that. October's average was just under 1200 people.

Thou shalt not question Ubi's decision to test the loot box waters.

Seriously tho... couldn't give less of a fuck about PvP either. I'm soloing and PvEing this bitch all the way and it is quite fun but also quite frustrating sometimes due to controls issues or actually too good AI (dudes with submachine guns hitting ya right in the nut sack from 300 yards away in the middle of the night while you are in cover with nary any nut sack even sticking out in the first place). On the other hand: Better AI is better than shitty AI so...

Yea, that my one and only real bitch about this game is the lack of a cover and concealment in the game. I got this really kewl Ghillie suit and it servers no purpose except for a cosmetic look.

When you get to a certain level or prestige or whatever it is called, enemy indicators are removed from the radar. Even if you tag them with a drone.

I'd fly into a town with another human player that was lower prestige level and they'd be screaming "What are doing, there are kinds of a (whatever the orange guys are) around us!" And I looked and my radar was clear.

Oh, okay, your doing he prestige thingy, well I dont care for that system in the game it really servers no good purpose.

I tried to enjoy this when they brought in the Tier system after you hit max level. But that resource grind is just so damn boring. You aren't doing anything fun besides hitting convoy after convoy after convoy so you can level weapon. And then you eventually get your enemy radar taken away from you... awesome. I get it, you're trying to make it more of a challenge... but it gets to a point where it just isn't fun anymore.

What are you referring to when you say you get your enemy radar removed?

That never happens, the only way you will lose it is if you put the game on its highest difficulty.

It was one of those games that was fun for a while, but none of the developers really understood what was fun about it. And patch by patch, they eventually managed to remove the fun and were left with a product that nobody was willing to give them money for any longer.

That nerfing patch pretty well killed the game for many. I put a ton of time into this game up until that patch. Then I lost total interest in the game as did many others.

Plus the fact the devs only seemed interested in selling cosmetic costumes and new heroes that pretty much used many of the same abilities as other heroes in the game. And the lack on new content and story missions and new raids killed this game.

And their greed, thanks Gaz!!!

Hopefully this is a also a step in the right direction that EA gets put on notice by Disney. One can only hope!!!

And no, turning them off every time you use the map is just even a bigger PITA. Same with playing offline. Whichever asshole thought forcing this scheisse on people so needs to be fired!

Yea, thats annoying as hell too seeing all that shit on my map. I could give a shit less about who took what photo of themselves jacking off.

So, UBI says that the DRM is not causing any issues with high CPU usage. I think they are full of shit. There's no way you double down on the DRM with Denuvo and the VMProtect they implemented over top of that DRM and not have some kind of CPU usage hits too.

The game was not designed to have these kinds of draconian DRMs layered over top of the game and then tell us that the game not being effected by this crap.

If UBI wants to prove that this DRM is not causing issues with high CPU usage, then show us real time monitoring of the game with and without the DRM.

Because thats the only way I'm going to ever believe anything they tell us.
