I just realized my post might have sounded like I was saying it was something bad (or whatever?) to ask, and in case that's how it came across, I'm sorry and that's not what I intended. I was just trying to share the news that they are apparently adding in more "autosave points" (which I took to mean just more cases in which it autosaves, but I guess points on the map makes sense with that wording) in case anyone didn't know. I also expected it to autosave before resting, and I think that is a good idea and should be added in.
no need to be sorry man, we all are gathered here to see our beloved game get better!
Disagreeing with this. I personally think they have enough, and to add more will simply add more blinking to the game. Which can trigger seizures, headaches and things. I personally feel the autosaves are enough, and it's on the player to remember to save.
Especially do to the time in between fights being rather small. Your talking about adding quicksaves where they may very well trigger every five minutes. It's easier for 'you' to get in the habit of saving when you
on every short rest
on every camp start
on every fight start
on every quest objective updates
this would be alot of blinking, and even annoying. Short rests are a button push by you the player, so is f5.
Every fight start, do you mean every time there is a probability of fighting? If so thats nearly every npc you approach, including your other party members. Or if it's every time the fight activates? you may very well want to save b4 that in case you can't beat the fight. So suddenly for every fight there is 2 saves. one right b4, one right before that one.
Every camp start again it's a button press for 'you' to do that, so is f5.
every quest objective update. Depending on how you run through areas that could be every 30 - 60 seconds in some areas. for instance the grove has multipule quests all within a short time of each other. So your screen will be spazzing out rapidly which again can cause seizuers, headaches, and other things.
I personally feel it is the players responsibility to add these extra saves, and find the autosaves to be sufficient as they are.
they could just add it BUT turn it off as default in the gameplay options. So both types of people could benefit!
