All suggestions, no bugs.

  • scroll wheel scrolls the list of lootable bodies in the loot screen, when the mouse is over the central section
  • crafting (incl. decompose screen): mouse over items and resources shows names in tooltip
  • during combat prep stage: clicking on party member's portrait in action queue selects them
  • during combat prep stage and regular combat: mousing over an enemy will subtly highlight their portrait in the action queue.

I am constantly trying to select my own units by clicking on their portrait, it feels like such a natural way to select party members.

Good suggestions, we will implement most of them, but "regular combat: clicking on party member's portrait in action queue selects them" would never be implemented as you can only control the character whose active turn is now... It's not like in X-COM in which you control all your party members during your party's turn, then the enemy moves all of them. Here it is on an individual basis.

Ah of course! I meant during the positioning phase.

F1 key for help still doesn't work, would be nice to be able to go back and read parts of the tutorial if you forget something.

but it’s just that right now it’s all about games as a service. We can make money out of it, but you can make more money elsewhere.

It's implemented for the new update.

Hey Nick, here's another UI suggestion. Please make the combat log resizable/movable like it was in AoD!

This gets requested a lot, so I guess we have to do it =)

Thanks. Got a strange UI bug today, look at the Attack Rating breakdown on the right. http://i.imgur.com/LbT4pxW.jpg

Character screen shows the breakdown of your defense, but shouldn't it show the break down of your vsCS also? And the help screen doesn't mention vsCS having anything to do with your own CS, seems strange, is that right?

Edit: This wasn't in the old version, and I don't see it in the new version, unless it's because I'm using a previous save. You can tell the poison strength of an equipped throwing weapon by mousing over, but I don't see any way to tell the poison strength of a missile in inventory.

Edit: I don't even understand how poisoning missiles works. I can either poison one missile at a time if I hold it in my hand, but it says it has 20 poison uses, or I can poison the crossbow! So how do you get a stack of poisoned missiles? Seems like a very inconsistent interface. Also if you load and unload a poisoned missile from inventory screen, it becomes non-poisoned, may be that's as intended.

There was a problem with poisoning arrows for some time, but we didn't have time to fix it before the update. Working on it now.

The help screen for critical should say that that's how it works for fast, normal and power attacks, but for special attacks it's a different formula, "see under attack description". Also it would be good to actually write down the formula instead of just describing it. Also seems strange to me that strength doesn't affect the crossbow damage, but does affect special criticals.

Please allow for removing the camera jamp when changing characters during pre-combat.

Whatever number of 'attacks' a poison works for, should poison that many missiles in a stack. I think that's a common sense solution.

Thanks for adding the new material tooltips in the crafting screen, it will make it easier for new players. The crafting breakdown screen still lacks a tooltip for what resource is generated, though.

Are you guys still planning to support mouse-wheel scrolling of bodies in the loot screen?


edit: the crafting material tooltips use the AoD material names - mithril and meteor - rather than DR's blue steel and sky metal.
