Not much of anything really. Probably don't need to bother the God of Rocks. God of Dirtclods will do.

 

 

 

So...... how about them new books we have coming?

 

I've already designed nearly 100 perk books. The old perk books will be deleted. The new perk books are not temporary perks, but permanent once you read them. There are collections of books, typically 5 to 8 volumes. Each volume is a unique perk but if you collect the entire set you get a special collector bonus perk that is more OP than the others.

 

Here are a couple sets:

Night Stalker Books

Night stalker Vol 1 Do 5% more sneak damage at night.

Night stalker Vol 2 Sneak 5% better at night.

Night stalker Vol 3 Knives do 5% more damage at night.

Night stalker Vol 4 Never encumbered at night.

Night stalker Vol 5 Bows do 5% more damage at night.

Night stalker Vol 6 Gain 5% more xp from sneak kills at night

Night Stalker Collection Perk Do an extra 50% sneak damage to sleeping victims at night.

Lucky looter Books

Lucky looter Vol 1 Find more dukes in loot

Lucky looter Vol 2 Find more ammo in loot

Lucky looter Vol 3 Find more brass in loot

Lucky looter Vol 4 Find more books in loot

Lucky looter Vol 5 Find more food in loot

Lucky looter Vol 6 Find more medical items in loot

Lucky Looter Collector Perk Find more mods in loot

i really really hate it when webpages like github want to force me using special characters in my passwords.

I have a simple system i use for all my passwords.

 

As a example (with a diferent formula)

Github would be

 

7 for G

i overtaken from github

33 as a string i add allways on this place

hub again overtaken from the webpage

 

= 7i33hub

 

This way i can have different passwords for all my 50 Websites and other stuff i use passwords.

But NOOOOOOO a very smart ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of programmer means i am not allowed to do that.

 

So i set a password i am sure i forget in 2 months and i will never again be able to access my stuff

 

 

Rant over

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------

ohh sorry, thought i wrote in my mod thread. Anyway

 

Why don't you just do something like this:

 

String special_char = "";

switch (your_password.length mod 10) {

case 1: special_char = "!"; break;

case 2: special_char = "@"; break;

case 3: special_char = "#"; break;

case 4: special_char = "$"; break;

case 5: special_char = "%"; break;

case 6: special_char = "^"; break;

case 7: special_char = "&"; break;

case 8: special_char = "*"; break;

case 9: special_char = "("; break;

case 0: special_char = ")"; break;

}

your_password += special_char;

I didn't use the old magic scrolls, mainly because I couldn't be bothered working out whether I had the prerquisite ability to gain the perk while Neptune was in the third house of Antioc. Those look much simpler... I might actually use those.

Here , I think...the God of Horse Apples would be much more fitting and appropriate!(if you have seen Shawshank Redemption you know what I mean...and if you haven't...SHAME on you!)

 

Shamway Redemption is what you mean bud, Shawshank Redemption is a legend ;)

Those books sound amazing! The map that I was playing on before had 2 crack a book skyscrapers next to each other, if books were like these new ones, I would never have changed maps.

Yep, definitely way better than the magazines, plus this will bring back a lot of the amazing feeling of looting and going "OMG look what I found!" that we lost with recipe books.

That sounds really cool, and any motivation to go out exploring is good in my book (har har).

 

It's interesting that the old magazines will be removed though. I do think they had potential, you just had to get rid of the requirement that you had to meet the level/attribute gate. Still, I won't really miss them.

Those books are a fabulous idea and one that will be greatly received.

 

We need a good reason to loot and this is a giant step towards that.

 

 

 

Doombringer101 --- I miss underground caves and caverns to, it was another environment to play in and go looting (which would present a greater danger challenge now, what with the enhanced AI)

In that case, Im hoping that TFP will drop another bookstore POI on the Navezgane map.

 

 

Really like the sound of the new skill books, much like how the old ones were. It's nice seeing them come back. :)

Just got to see this. Ok now THIS I am sold on. I like the idea of making bookstores important again, and all of these seem like perks you would WANT to seek out. Hopefully these can not be bought and only found, but even still modding.

 

So first news out of 18 and Im not going to lie this excites me.

filling the world with lots of different types of books is a very good move.

 

Small question : is experimental b20 going out of experimental quickly or not before quite a bit ?

 

This new settings are so darn good it stopped me from trying mods. I can't play these mods WITHOUT the new settings ! (i know i could mod it the way i want but having those close at hands saves a lot of time)

Why aren't there a bunch of books that just provide a temporary bonus to <whatever>?

 

We have the perk books which require you to search through your character sheet to make sure you have the prerequisite skill to get the specific perk bonus, assuming you're not getting a "death bonus" or getting attacked at the time.

 

We have the new perk books which provide a permanent bonus to <whatever> which likely means they're rare and can only be read once.

 

How about a bunch of temporary bonuses from books that are consumed on reading? That would seem a good way to check whether any of the bonuses are overpowered.

 

I know the great Mole like his ramp-it-up / cut-it-back system but there's a lot of middle-ground being leapt over on the way.
