    Tells me they’re doing a better job hiring top talent than the woke states.

    Its difficult to describe how much the changes to difficulty change the groups of monsters you will fight as well as the tactics you will use as it varies on a case by case basis, but this should give you some idea of the stat adjustments.

    The stat adjustment was like that in Kingmaker as well, no? It worked decently enough to spike difficulty early and early-mid game, but was entirely insufficient from then on.

    Stat adjustments were much lower in Kingmaker from memory. I don't think there were any monster stat differences between hard and unfair either, but that just might be me remembering wrong. They did deal double damage though.

    I think it's been expanded with more body types and more ancillary shit like extra beard styles. Not that necessary IMO, Player Portraits have always been more important.

    Not even close. I have a couple Unfair shots where you can see it. This one is for big boys and girls only. I’ll use it for some testing but I’m too old for a playthrough. I did a full tinman Unfair playthrough no problem in P:K but I doubt I’d be able to handle it in Wrath. I have no doubt that it can be done by speed-runner types.

    Nice. I guess I'll start with my usual zany builds and see if they work, but if they don't I'll be glad to turn down the difficulty. Best case scenario, in fact. Just out of curiosity, have they made any comments on the difficulty? Lately it seems that even when the developer agree there's a need for a better highest difficulty they just don't make it because they don't want to listen to all the complaining it results in

    What the hell are they going on about? Characters and weapons & armor design are still cartoon as hell and reminiscent of WoW with oversized heads, laughably disproportionate armor design and gigantic weapons.

    Yeah Pathfinder art is incredibly terrible at its core. I think what he's trying to say is they toned it down. But it's still Pathfinder art

    Any chance they are going to have a campaign editor or something of the sort? The engine is generally great but would prefer some user made modules. Haven't been following.

    DLC Season Pass is available for purchase on Steam but only purchaseable if you have the retail key (i.e. non-alpha/non-beta), which nobody does yet. Well played, Owlcat.

    "We switched from doing everything in Maya to doing everything in Unity"

    Any game devs here? What does this mean? If it means that loading times will be even longer and there would be more memory leaks, I'm not buying this until Definitive Enhanced Super Plus Edition comes out. It would be a bummer.

    The second sounds like PoR-style low magic setting.

    I backed it on KS (and the alpha and beta), so I don't know; I won't buy it a second time to check. I imagine people who preordered it right now through stream could then get the DLC though... the issue is that Steam won't know KS backers 'own' it until Owlcat sends us the keys for the launch version.

    I'm expecting kind of a fusion of a Banners-Saga stlye attrition journey with Pathfinder mechanics. Honestly, all of the DLCs look interesting to me, although I hope the rougelite is a bit more entertaining than Kingmaker's.

    Here's some interesting reactivity.
    story spoiler and shit for ch.2 (open)

    This popped up in the combat log when I chose the line restricted to a Calistria worshiper. Not game changing, but interesting that there's some mechanical consequence.

    Not really a DEV but somewhat familiar, so it seems they used a nonmodular approach in the first game as it was not hip at the time( it kinda become a thing not a while ago), so now they are doing it in module-based fashion and assemble levels inside unity, while before they made the whole location inside Maya (3d model soft), added UV's and textures there. This is regarded as a more modern and speedy approach (plus Autodesk soft tends to be bugged as shit) because Unity handles all textures and assets and shit while in 3d soft you gotta import that shit manually.
    So basically they make small assets in Maya and assemble them and add mats later on in unity like in NWN editor. Not sure how custom texturing works in unity tho. I bet they use substance painter for that but I'm ain't sure.
    That's my take.
