Just guessing, but I would expect TFP are also not happy with the current state of looting.... if they were, it would be the final product. Well, if a poll's purpose is to get feedback about something (as its title implies) and that something gets mixed with future changes that haven't already happened, you don't really get any feedback about the effects of that something - you get feedback about the expectations people have about the whole thing. Anyhow, whether the change is a necessary step™ or yet another step of experimentation, wish the whole player scaling went away when it comes to areas. My guess is that they will initially add modifiers, in the next alpha see that linearity is more or less the same and various POIs also become obsolete and decide to add negative modifiers and/or caps, in the alpha after that rebalance lootlists to see if things improve, in the next realize that they could have done everything with area scaling in the first place, and somewhere around A4x, a believable world might emerge, if they don't get fed up in the meantime and start developing their new game. 51 minutes ago, meganoth said: If it isn't clear, with filter i meant adding all answers together that say the same about the current state irrespective of what they say about the future. If all possible future answers are included in this sum, only the testimony about the current state is left as testimony. The choice itself is influenced by all parts of the answer. You can't just isolate some of them and ignore the rest. An example of a double-barreled question would be the following: "do you think that students should have more classes about history and culture?" This question asks about two different issues: "do you think that students should have more classes about history" and "do you think that students should have more classes about culture?" Combining both questions into one makes it unclear what exactly is being measured, and as each question may elicit a different response if asked separately there is an increased likelihood of confusing the respondents. In other words, while some respondents would answer "yes" to both and some "no" to both, some would like to answer both "yes and no". Other examples of double-barreled questions: "Please agree or disagree with the following statement: Cars should be faster and safer." "How satisfied are you with your pay and job conditions?" "How often and how much time do you spend on each visit to a hospital?" "Does your department have a special recruitment policy for men and women?" "Do you think that there is a good market for the product and that it will sell well?" "Should the government spend less money on the military and more on education?" "Is this tool interesting and useful?" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
