In recent RPG-s there was a problem with the economy (gold, money, etc.). Either you had no gold at all or it was plenty and cannot buy with it anything. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/stupid.gif" alt="" />


I think it was Wazzz who already wrote that they had a "solution" for that.

I like mmorpg's well I like the basic idea altho none of them have really met my expectations of what a mmorpg should be.

Now I don't wish DD2 to be mmorpg, would be cool tho but to my experience the mmo in mmorpg make it rpg, this works great without decent storyline, repetetive quests, no-one wondering how ridiculous it really is that 234343 poeple before you killed mr badguys leader.

Other than that, mmorpg's require servers, security, gm's etc etc, lots of work Larian can't spend in original content.

Tho, to get to my point a simple co-op mode would be great, accompagnied with a little friends client-server system. A la Diablo II. A more worked out meeting place "say, all inn's act as some cross-client meeting place" would be nice, to have some roleplaying interaction with strangers. But this might not be feaseble in a simple manner.

and ofcourse modability.


It's one of these days...

I want to be free ... free to fight or no ... free to run, explore or travel in a wide world ...

free to flee the combat or of tightening ambushes

free to use elves or dwarves expertise to improve or imagine powerful and varied weapons

free to become a demon or a saint in order to live the adventure in another way

Im not sure how you are planning to do the fighting
but Im dreaming for a long time about a RPG where we can assign our own combos to our mousebuttons
everyone could have his own unique fighting style and change it so it feels natural for every player
and as your level increases you unlock different combos/skills to use with those combos
because in my opinion most RPGs are just about clicking on your enemys and you need no skill (often just a high lvl, or a good armor)
and that is getting old and boring to me because I played tons of RPGs just like that.
but please at least let us use combos and not always the same attack over and over and over and over again

(and an optional online arena could be fun, and could be a reason to keep playing the game once you did (most of) the quests, or just want a change)
it could also be a way to show that unique fighting style you have developped to your friends, offcourse i dont expect this to be a huge part of the game
but it should be doable to make a small sized arena where you could show your friends your character


and if you choose not to implement this idea (the first one, the second idea was just a thought not something i would really miss in the game)
leave us the choice to just leave the fighting to others and live our RPG live peacefully

You'd like Legend of Dragoon on the PSOne, a similar game to Final Fantasy. Each attack is a combo and you have to press buttons at the right moment to progress the combo. Every 20 times you fully complete a combo, it levels up giving greater bonuses. As your character levels up, more combos become available.

Welcome!

Anyway most of my wishes have already been hit but there is one piece that I always liked that not alot of games have.(at least not well done)

Property ownership...or the ability to find a remote location and start a hideout, fort, or small town. Then depending on your character's alignment you would attract certain sorts of people...so say you are a sneaky thief type character with a penchant for assassination...your hideout would attract black market folks and bandits looking for a real leader...

Just imagine starting the game with nothing but clothes(not even shoes!!) and then building up through the course of the game to where you could have a functioning town, with smiths, and sages, and guards and whatnot...Its almost like a more general version of sim city put into an RPG...I love the idea.

Couldn't agree more, I was thinking something very similar.
I would also like to see a developing character. Growing muscles, growing hair, slowly healing of wounds, scars, ...

nero that's it exactly for me too! I always wanted to buy a castle and like be able to buy guards for it. Say like you have to pay them 500 gold every like month of in game time or w/e and they'll stay and guard. But if they get to too low health, maybe some of them will run away, or they might decide to rob you, so you need to choose who to hire? I dont know, maybe too indepth, hehe.

But thats what I want =D

thanks ill check that out!

but I still would like to see a RPG that worked this way for PC so i can use a mouse and keyboard
(a little bit like rakion (from softnyx) this is no RPG but the fighting is kinda nice. you can't change your combos but there are some pretty nice attacks in the game)
that game also shows that is not always smart to just use your strongest combo but need to think about who or what you are fighting

so its very important that you spend alot of time balancing out the combos and not that a certain lvl is almost invincible because his armor or attack is so strong it doesnt matter what he does

i was thinking about something similar like that too <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> but i didnt write that idea down because else my post would become too long for ppl to read.
anyway it looks like alot of ppl would like to see this in a RPG

and if your town gets really big it would be nice if you had to defend it because someone wants taxes or to just take over your town (unless offcourse you chose to live the RPG live peacefully then it should become some sort of sanctuary)

EDIT: if we could start our own (small) town it would be nice to pay some npc builders and have them build some buildings for you. And if the npcs have a certain rep (for instance negative rep for murderers/thieves positive rep for ppl that hunt down murderers thieves) we could allow only ppl with a positive rep or a negative rep. (or only rich ppl that will pay some sort of entry fee)
or only ppl that will build a house/store in your city.
well if this gets included or something similar i have tons of ideas more but as it prolly will be too hard to add something like this, I will keep those ideas for myself for now.
(because i think i speak for everyone here if i say that we wouldnt want to wait 5 more years before the game gets finished due too some insane gamers with too much imagination and too much spare time on their hands and thus too many ideas that imo are worth considering)

Hmmm.. long time since i posted on this forum.

I would like to add my wish to the wishlist.

Be able to keep on leveling..
I always liked the ability to max out every single atribute of your character.
That is what i always like when i play a rpg, starting with a weak player and work your way up to a strong high level warrior, with powerfull weapons and armor.


I have been frozen in my seat on many occasions not wanting to move my mouse for fear of what might happen next, Iíve heard sounds and voices so clear that I was becoming unsure if they were actually coming from the speakers

you mean like guildwars ? well the citys are the meeting places, not really inn's or something similar.
that was a nice idea i thought at first, but i proved to be quite frustrating finding a good team. but like this it would become more a mmorpg offcourse.
yet it would be very nice to still be able to play single player RPG and at the same time have the possibility to meet your friends or complete strangers in inns or citys or special meeting places.
and make it possible to play together (either in a duel or arena competition or play quests together. but the quests should be made harder the bigger the team gets so it is challenging (not impossible) if you play alone
and also still challenging for a team.
but as i already said, it would become more of an MMORPG...

Quite honestly, I want it to to be a LOT like the original Divine Divinity. It combined an open world and interesting quest structure with the loot and item system of a roguelike action RPG like Diablo II.

People have already talked a lot about the open world, so I will concentrate on items:

Please have an item system similar to Divine Divinity only with more types of items and more unique one and artifacts. This adds a lot to the RPG experience and was done well in DD. Please make this a priority.

Other than that, I really trust you to get it right. I think you learned a lot from DD and BD and will make DD2 the best it can be. Cant wait to hear more and play it!

Well as for the game itself... i trust Larian to come up with a lovely game regardless of what i want.... but most of my wishlist has been mentioned here already.....

But on a different note....

Please make it compatible with programable gaming keyboards...
Ideazon - FangPads and Zboards

As far as i am aware, this is not a difficult procedure, as it only requires one of the developers to send through a list of ideal short-cut keys and what they are used for... the Ideazon team will provide all the utilities to create a downloadable Mod for the keyboards...

Optionally... (ideally from a marketing perspective)
Ideazon brings out custom keyboard layouts (asside from the programable MOD keyboard - which is hot-swop-able) that game developers use to further market the game. I for 1 will be one of the first to buy a Larian-layout keyboad, to make the next RPG a dream to play.

Guildwars - among various other games, Used this majorly to their advantage, by selling the keyboard-kit along with the game, (or was it the other way aroung... buy the keyboard with guildwars set and get the game with... anyways same concept).

Very popular games, that used the Zboard to further promote their game playability

Just something to look at.... at least the MOD...





Your existence alone, is excuse enough for the creation of the entire universeÖ Il you my darling Jeanne-Drť 

My only wish is this one: I want to be able to play the new RPG on my computer (Athlon 64 3200+, 500 MB RAM, GeForce FX 5500) <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/exclamation.gif" alt="" />

... though I'm afraid this is utopic <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cry.gif" alt="" />

Could anyone spare a better computer, perchance? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/kissyou.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/xmassmiley.gif" alt="" />
