    Geneforge 5 Modding Suite Demo

    I tested it and it works.

    Geneforge 4 Forgotten One

    Geneforge 3 player didn't go to Sucia though and the Monarch is very old. Geneforge 3 to Geneforge 4 is just 7 years. Monarch would be 23-26 years old in that case.

    Geneforge 4 Hidden Bosses

    Seems true, but I didn't have a problem stopping anything. Perhaps if I go to that hidden boss you said.

    You got Ur-drakons? I didn't manage to get even the 2nd canister I think, let along the 3rd. If it was at the finale, I didn't see the reason anyway as my trusty Drakon had leveled significantly and would probably be better than a brand new Ur-Drakon. And cheaper, allowing me to use more spells.

    Well, it's not like I played it recently either... I could be wrong too.

    Are you sure? I didn't see an agent in the group the Shapers sent in Northforge after killing Miranda. Frankly, their invasion was a joke while in the Warrens they were harder. I could just sit back and the NPCs would butcher everyone. Akhari Blaze and Greta killed Alwan, so I probably haven't killed him in the Warrens though. I remember that cause I tried hard to make sure that Greta would be the one to kill Alwan.

    Oh, you mean when they're in the machinery place? Yes, I did that and killed Miranda there. I thought you meant when they were in their secret camp, all together, before they leave for Northforge.

    Geneforge 4 Forgotten One

    Well, the developer doesn't know what happened to every player's character so the canon path is that he's not mentioned aside of the references to the "3rd Shaper". I also think that the canonical approach lends from the finale of the previous games but doesn't choose one of them completely. So, what happened in GF3 Rebel ending is not necessarily what happened canonically. GF4 storyline as far as GF3 goes is what they tell you: The Rebellion started and won in the Ashen Isles, there was an attack at Greenwood Academy by Litalia and Greta, Alwan and a 3rd Shaper escaped. Greta joined the nice mass murderer lady that killed her friends, colleagues and teachers and filled the island with monsters. The who and what and how are considered "details".

    I tried that. They wiped the floor with me.

    Geneforge 4 Hidden Bosses

    Never really did that one. Is it worth it to play this zone enjoyment-wise in your opinion? I don't care about loot and stuff since I will go there using my end-game save.
  11. Ehh... it's not exactly as you think. Also you get on the other side of that gate 3 years later. It is not necessary to defeat the force guarding that side. Actually... TheKian, could you make a mod to add another 1-2 areas beyond that gate? Since GF4 and GF5 use the same mapping for terrain etc, I could map them if you want and give you the hex files to add there, but I cannot do a full mod about those areas, adding items, NPCs, stories, scripts etc.

    Geneforge 5 mouse sensitivity

    Did the reinstall helped with that too?

    Well, that's an increase of dice then.

    [GF4] Monarch's motives?

    Well, Monarch says such things himself... Taygen is not much better, he is also a misanthrope. But Taygen didn't act (at least on that scale). Monarch's solution to clean house was "I have to go to the store and buy Clorox. What a bother... it may rain. Oh, wait, I have a ton of nerve agent next to the kitchen counter! It would also clean my place. Yeah, I will go with that. Faster". This detachment he shows, the "I can create life so I don't value it" taken beyond the scale is fascinating for me.
  15. Several year after playing GF4 and I still wonder over the Monarch. First thing first I like this villain a lot. Not gray lines there. A madman without redeeming qualities bent on evil. Still, what do you think the Monarch's motives were? Power? He could have made a nice underground kingdom for himself for his mindless serviles. And what's the point of having a big patch of land, as big as a moderate province actually, completely devoid of sentient life as your own? Even the vast majority of his Creations were not loyal to him but rogue. That's not power. He could have just gone to a nice empty place in the Dera Reaches and set up camp there if he didn't want a place with anything not Monarch-made. I really don't understand why the Monarch wanted to wipe out anything non-monarch made. He didn't wanted control over Terrestia apparently; he didn't conquer land. He emptied it. Was he a hermit? There are other ways, safer, to be anti-social than taking both the Rebels and the Shapers for the lulz if you don't like neighbors. Just go to a mountain, make things to eat and make those mindless non-sentient serviles to serve you. Problem solved. Was he a nihilist that just wanted to destroy anything non-Monarch made in the world? He GOT to have realized that this was impossible by just throwing out spawners and a control baton. At some point the creations would eat each other and stopped moving away.

    Pffft. Overthinking it is what I enjoy.

    2 years... I will hold off and play the remastered. PS. I am one of the people that bugged him, sending an email or two a year or two ago. Glad that I did.

    Jeff was probably too harsh with himself. Sure he probably forgot a few things along the way, but I believe he started each GF game with the premise "what works best as setup?" not "According to my faulty memory... what was the canon ending of the previous game?"

    [GF4] Monarch's motives?

    This game... this game has made me to give a pause and get a strange unease when I hear about non-human surgeons, created surgeons if you will, that are under a platform named Monarch. I mean it is certainly good news for humanity ... right?

    For starters you can be a servile in GF5, while you can't in GF3.

    WE'VE LOST

    Damn, I was scared for a bit... I certainly want a GF1 remake since I haven't played the original and GF2 while good story would certainly benefit from more love to creations and improved mechanics like a better inventory system. Thanks Randomizer.

    Geneforge 5 Tweaks

    Another way to do it, quite more complex but doable, is through a usable item that triggers a script. But for the creations to not be in the party, they have to be included in all zones. Level, bonuses etc can be scripted, but the presence of the creations to be summoned is unavoidable and its the big hustle. It is possible in a way similar to the way Pinchy (the imba-powerful Clawbug Shaped by Arkaron when you have him in your party in the Warrior Mod) worked, but it is too much work to do that for all zones. TL;DR sorry mate, it's too much work...
  23. Which drayks if I may ask? Perhaps the scripts boost some? But still, it wouldn't be "Strengthened by your presence"... probably a bug. But 46 lvl? War-Trall Shaper? War-Tralls are super-cost-effective essence-wise. At 46 lvl you probably have a few artifacts to give your creations a +6 to +12 to stats or something and a ton of essence. With 5 high-level War tralls you probably could take everything in the game, including the final battles. You can cut through those 1500 hp drayks with ease. Do it! :-)

    Geneforge 5 Tweaks

    The one I would miss the most is what every Shaper has GF3 and onwards: Shape in battle. I would hug the back and send waaaaaaaves of expendable creations.
