    Is that finished yet? Or did they change engines again?

    Anyways, I certainly took some screenies of Allyx's new worldmap paths in action (they are IMPRESSIVE... :notworthy ) but I can't find them in the screenies lfolder, no idea why. So here are some of the new Climb / Use Rope skills in action (and what happens if u don't take enough ranks) - I am happy to answer demands for new screenshots, for I am a river to my people. :cool:

    EDIT: Looking at that, I might make folks who fall go prone for a moment... hmmm...

    Or perhaps a more important question is, will the map have pit traps, and trap doors that open when you step on them, and .HSD's (is that what those pesky things were called?) that make the PC drop down the pit trap? And what about the .SVB's for while your down in the pit?

    Huh? huh? HUH? :poke:

    Just kidding. ;)

    Hear ... Hear... climbing skills and rope skills... I wonder if someone can hang themselves.. would be a hoot if you're hanging by one foot and being attacked... wonder what the "To Hit" (-) modifier would be on that...

    next Ted's gonna tell us he can FLY:coffee:

    I'd say the DC is 15 in a desolate and deserted place....
    Now... at the Keep it's even easier... muahaha... the gallows
    are just ahead... all you have to do is assault someone in the
    streets and if you live you can try to tighten the noose.

    Has my sub-race idea/proposition caught on? ;)

    As for the skills. Knowledge (or more preferably Lore, for it's
    a computer game) would be welcome. It could be used as
    a special condition in some dialogues too apart from the ability
    of identifying items. :D

    Well, Knowledge WOULD be nice, and in the long term it will hopefully happen, but not right away ;)

    Grizzli - sorry my new skills under-impressed you ;) They are entirely new skills you put points into like any other - and no, they don't replace existing ones. There are many that the game engine will recognise but don't actually do anything, we are activating them as we can create functionality for them (and thanks to Spellrunner for being able to activate them).
    If we hadn't made you a moderator you would be SO BANNED!!! :rant:
    Only when my brother's around.

    Very exciting work. As has been mentioned before, it's great for us gamers that the excellent ToEE engine will live on in new modules. God bless you! :D

    Peter? hmm and here i thought you were ted ;) well say hi to nathan for me :)

    knowledge would be cool. one thing i always liked about IWD 2 over others was the seperate skills for potions (alchemy) and items (arcana or lore). gave you a chance to identify things without spells if you were willing to spend the skill points on them. also made the bard and his bard skills alot more useful

    Does a lvl 4+ monk take no damage for falling 10 feet? Do I even have to answer that? What an insult! :p It was the first thing I did!
    Code:
    def falls( attachee, triggerer ):
    	t = 1
    	for clown in game.leader.group_list():
    		if clown.stat_level_get(stat_level_monk) >= 4:
    			t = t+500
    			game.timevent_add(comment1, (clown), 3000 )
    			clown.float_mesfile_line( 'mes\\narrative.mes', 100 )		
    #		elif clown.type == obj_t_npc:
    #			for m, n in flying_squad.items():
    #				if clown.name == n:
    #					t = t+500
    #					game.timevent_add(comment2, (clown), t )
    #					clown.float_mesfile_line( 'mes\\narrative.mes', 107 )
    #				else:
    #					t = t+500
    #					game.timevent_add(comment3, (clown), t )
    		else:
    			clown.condition_add_with_args( 'prone', 0, 0)
    			t = t+500
    			game.timevent_add(comment3, (clown), t )
    	...
    	...
    	...
    	...
    	return
    And so it goes. The flying squad are familiars etc who would flap down and not worry about climbing / falling (not implemented yet). I think we will have all bases covered ;)

    Should be easy to implement ye ol' Ring of Feather Fall too :) Can't say the spell is a priority though.
