    Greetings, all!

    This post I put here because I thought it useful and saw nothing else like it. Y'all can talk about the feasibility of things later.

    1: Alphabetization of spells known per spell level. To my knowledge, they're alphabetized on the radial menu when I can cast them, but not on the spells known screen. Thus, a Wizard could have a first level spell selection as such:

    Protection from evil
    Magic missile
    Summon monster I
    Burning hands

    2: An option to standardize (maximize?) the amount of money gained at character creation. Right now, reloading/reforming my party to get more money is a time sink that should not exist.

    3: Teleport. I'd like this spell to be able to warp me to any exterior or interior map I've visited, and anywhere on said map. (Vignette and other problematic maps are excluded.)

    4: Defensive casting should only roll a skill check when in combat!

    5: The vigor spells (from Spell Compendium, meaning setting-neutral) as healing spells for Druids and Clerics. It's more options.

    We all know we want Prestige Classes.

    Even though, that's highly unrealistic at the moment.

    You can just use the console to add money to your party at any time. Very quick.

    give 7003 = 50 pp

    Version 8 is the final version of the Modpack, although there may be future updates for fixing, tweaking or adding small changes hence the .0.1 and so on. :(

    I misunderstood the topic- I thought he was talking about a whole new ToOE being remade to today's standards. Atari still holds the rights to the game don't they?

    Ooooo... Atari is long gone, dude, they went under. I don't believe that's what this topic was about but hopefully someone who keeps more up-to-date can answer. My understanding is that the right's have reverted to Hasbro, but I'm guessing.

    It's a wishlist, people can wish all they want :)

    I have asked for it before, and I don't even know if it is feasible, but Improved Familiars!

    Gimme a Firedrake as an option!

    I think I heard that the source code was finally released for this game, maybe in another country that we can translate/ This could be a very cool early quest line to get materials, such as, oh I don't know, hemlock from some place in one of the early towns?? Or other stuff.

    That is my wish, oh, Genies of the Modding.

    You should request "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" be made into a mod.

    Ummm? Well, VP made them, and Rudy got some of his stuff working... I guess it's a possibility. I'll see what I can do Endarire, since I am working on a spell mod atm (Speaking of which, Create Undead, Summon Greater Elemental and Greater Planar Ally are finished btw, they are pretty simple).

    Yay! Thankee!

    What about adding the planar binding spell series to ToEE? I got back into ToEE because I thought they were in.

    Trap a creature to perform a service? Well, I can think of some specific uses for it, but as a general spell to be thrown around, not really ToEEish I think... :( what did you have in mind?
