    The reason I don't like this is that the Fix command cheats and sets your HP and spell casts to max without simulating resting, i.e no chance of random encounters.

    Why is the fix command even included? I'm just not going to use it, it's basically cheating. Actually, a lot of these commands are cheating.

    The alternative is to rest, cast all your cure light wounds spells, rest again (reselecting CLW manually every time), cast all your CLWs, rinse and repeat. It's bloody annoying, and there's a reason SSI automated the process after the first game. You'd better hope for good rolls on your CLWs too, because healing a 40 hp fighter 1 hp at a time is not fun. You can use GBC's Fix if you're in an area free of random encounters, but otherwise yeah, it's cheating.

    As for the rest of the stuff, GBC was made for GB veterans by GB veterans, and is sort og an all-in-one tool for surface level messing about with the engine, in addition to QoL features. Apart from that, it's a mod, period. That should suffice for an explanation. :P

    I think it's worth for the hud (status effects, xp meter etc) alone. As for the "fix"-command: Yes, it's cheating. In PoR I used it only in the civilized area. In CotAB an onward I used the native fix-command. Not to forget you could rest spam in these games anyway.

    A lot of popamoles in your wishlist. Anyway I can recommend you "mission critical", the "spellcasting" series, "Dark Corners of the Earth", "Wizards & Warriors", "Atom RPG", "Avernum : The complete Saga" (the remakes are meh) plus the "worms" games.

    I'm honestly going to trim my own list. Its like 40 games and now that i think about some of them.... meh. 5 pages!?!?! Good lord.

    Is space rangers 1-2 even worth it? Its weird as hell and a Russian translation?

    Eh don't matter now. I watched too much of the vids and sale is over. Oh well. Next time maybe.

    Once you get enough money it's easiest and quickest (as long as you are still in Phlan) to just pay for healing at a temple.

    Apparently they don't want screenshots or videos floating around but they didn't say anything about descriptions so if anyone got it... Let us know how it works.

    I had considered the avernum 3 remake as its all i need + cluebook but it needs a bigger discount. I need to see a review comparison.

    My mum does. She even watches old cartoons from the 40s-70s on a channel. Shessks me about using it and i'm like... "fuck if i know anything about it." I have an account under a dubious name but i can't stand Fuckerberg or his fucking bitmining/data hoarding site.

    Yes but you are aware other people exist right? And that they use Facebook? So asking "does anyone even use Facebook anymore" is a retarded fucking question? And that it makes sense for GOG to work on Facebook integration?
