Is having a party larger than 4 players really so costly in terms of game development and final performance?
If not, there would certainly be mod for that ... We allready have mod that allows us expand our party up to 8!
There are technical problems with that tho ... and personaly i believe that no matter how great Larian is, and no matter how deeply they care ... there is one argument that apply even to them: By applying mods, you take responsibility for your game integrity.
If they offer official support for 6 party members ... *they* have to make it work. If they offer official support for 6 player members ... *they* have to make it work. If there is 6 party mod and you use it ... its not their concern, since they have nothing to do with it ... *you* have to make it work.
