A little status update!

Playtesting is hopefully starting around Christmas holidays, and we'll also be revisiting some old faces in one of the main quests smile

November 8th Update! horsey

We've had quite a bit of progress since last update, I'll just write up a feature list here and include some visuals.

‚Ė∂ New Areas

Fort Joy Isles
Explore various islands and points of interest around Fort Joy. Several quests, secrets and treasures to be found. But as all pirates should know, where there's treasure, there's danger.

Elven Homestead (By Skumleren, Work In Progress)
Can't describe this without spoiling quite a bit of story.

Big New Feature!

Roam the High Seas
No teleports, no mumbo jumbo, just you and your crew taking to the high seas. Make Beast a happy Dwarf, bring him on an afternoon of pirate shenanigans and treasure hunting around Fort Joy Isles during Episode 1!

Damn, and I was wondering what you have been doing all week :)
Revisiting The Wavedancer is like screenshot of some pirate movie.
Ship portrait with sun in the background looks cool.
Great, keep up the good work.

Thanks you two! Putting an effort to push towards playtesting for Episode 1 soon, albeit still waiting for word from Larian regarding Instance painting and when a patch will come to fix that. TL;DR is if you paint bushes/grass etc on a map, intending to use this map as a level template to be added to a main level later, the instances will not follow. I'd rather wait for a patch to fix this rather than paint land 4x size of Fort Joy with instances twice.

Meanwhile, I've been working on new areas within Fort Joy itself, hidden away with stuff to explore of which I won't say, and should also help with making a new playthrough with the mod feel like a new experience cheer

Count yourself counted in! ūüėĄ

I've published the first small collection of GM Mode Maps in a separate mod now, as I've decided to have the promised GM content in a separate mod for multiple reasons. Mostly for cleanliness and freedom of choice of what interests people.

It can be seen at Steam Workshop | Nexus

Though, I believe Nexus may need some time to verify it for downloads to be possible (?).

Awesome work Composer! Can't wait to play this.

Please tell me that when we finally get custom sound support, we'll get to listen to sea shanties when sailing around. grin

Hell yeah! May even do a community pirate chant similar to as Hans Zimmer did with Bane's chant in Dark Knight Rises? That'd be kinda epic.


EDIT:
When you overlook one simple proc looping for an infinity... Thought this was hilarious!

Another little news update!

  • -- Main post has been updated to credit team members, Skumleren and Milena. We recently got Milena onboard the team providing new homemade prefabs and also decorating interiors and levels.
  • -- Dynamic Level Scaling - Enemies around Rivellon now scale near the player's level, based on story and event influence. This should make combat rebalancing and world progression shaping a lot easier, faster and with some extra tweaking options.


Things are starting to really shape up, and that is a very reassuring and exciting feeling. I think I can speak on behalf of the team that we're super eager to open the gates for you sometime soon too! \^^/

It's been a while since last update. I've had a surgery since last update, hence the quieter presence on most platforms as I've spent time recovering. Still got some work done though!

Sorting out one of the final locations for Episode 1, I will refrain from explaining context of where it fits in, but it's quite a unique location, one of the lore-heavy moments providing more depth to one of the new storylines.
