    I was gonna say Radiant AI, but then I sat down and thought real hard, and came to the conclusion that it was always bullshit and lies.

    I'd say that level scaling was pretty "Red Queen".

    At least you are trying to be helpful now, sgc, earlier you seamed very trolly. But ruprekt has been nice and even funny and there is no use trying to make up the distance now.

    Anyways, I won't be checking this thread much any more I will be looking through some of the oblivion mods and lists, so wish me luck (there are quite a lot) and hope to see you all around.

    If there was anything cut, it just made the game more perfect.

    No, I just referred to the cyclic evolutionary arms race, which in turn is named in reference to 'Through the Looking Glass', in order to make level scaling joke.

    Louis Carroll was a pedo so you're a pedo.

    ps: pedants are not funny so I guess you just got lucky there.

    Nonsense. Machinegunning your enemies from above with your Exquisite Belt of Fireball while they helplessly try to figure out how to jump is half the Morrowind experience.

    The other half is picking your nose while you do it

    About Oblivion - I remember that a few shops don't sell their unique items. See more here.

    Give more enemies ranged weapons, make arrows harder to dodge, make inertia somewhat more pronounced while levitating, introduce casting delay for enchanted items too, if enchanted items recharge Morrowind style make them do so only when equipped and lose all charge otherwise, make AI know when to flee end able to hide in places you can't reasonably attack from above*, make levitation hard and costly. Fix'd.


    *) The only part requiring actual work.

    Giving opponents a disspell that would turn off your levitate would be nice too.
    Maybe making it so you couldn't physically dodge it.


    I like how levitation was handled relation to the game world in Risen.

    Still, this would require opponents to be well versed in magic and undodgeable dispel would be pretty OP.

    Having a bow or crossbow if you're running around countryside and need to fend for yourself (hunting) should be a much more common option.

    In any case, any opponents that matter should have some anti-air capability, friends with such ability or a place to hide. Levitation, OTOH should be among the most difficult and demanding Alteration/Thaumaturgy spells in existence.
