    I couldn't get into the DREAM mod after trying it for a bit. The only visual mods I use are the one for the clock and the one that corrects the paper doll color variants, otherwise I love the way the game already looks.

    I look forward to the 0.13 release, I'd been wanting to get back into Daggerfall but maybe I'll put it off for a few more weeks.

    It looks like it might still take a good while until "everything" has been perfected.
    But it's amazing that the project ever got to this point.

    If you're talking about all the things above, that's just mods. The game itself is complete.

    I did mean mods.
    Though if the authors name the current version of the game proper 0.13beta, one would think there's lot to revise there too, at the very least.
    But it wasn't criticism, just an observation.

    Gave it a whirl with quite a mod list. A lot of amazing stuff on the nexus and works overall decent. My favorites are the changes to rogues where stealth skills actually affect thief quests, unleveled thief skills and spells plus functional race bonuses.
    D.R.E.A.M with increased population mods are also great to make towns and villages feel more alive.

    Linguist is an interesting build since DF Unity fixes the language skills. In the early stages you get absolutely obliterated by everyone, so you need some combat or magic skills to compensate, but if your language skills upgrade effectively then by the time you get to Orsinium in the main quest, nobody's attacking you.

    Everytime I play my Nord with immunity to frost, extra damage towards animals and phobia to undead. Axe and Archery is what he uses and the only magic is mysticism, rest skills are geared for movement.
    It's just that Daggerfall is maybe the only elder scrolls series with some verticality, barring Morrowind, but that one is exclusive with Levitation, here you can climb.

    I love it that you can climb. Only think that it feels a bit fast at times.

    Stealth and language. Watch enemies fight it out against each other. Outrun your enemies with athletics and jump over em with acrobatics. Climb walls as a last resort. Innate resistance to magic so they cant blast you while you escape

    I think that looks worse than ever. That dungeon corridor looks leathery. And bloom and motion blur? What's this, the early 2000s? Good thing that's all optional.

    Maybe it's my eyes, but this

    OG Daggerfall (open)
    [​IMG]

    looks a helluva lot better than this

    Daggerfall w/ ColorBoost(TM)(R) (open)
    [​IMG]

    Also, "ColorBoost"? Really? They went to the nVidia school of marketing apparently...

    I fear the Daggerfall Unity team have fallen into that rabbit hole of tinkering with graphics minutiae and tweaking minor lighting effects, instead of working on really important, engine stuff.

    The former is fun and gives immediate gratification. The latter is hard.

    They're like 99% finished the project. There isn't important engine stuff left to do.
