    Could you make a mod to replace G5 the drakon/ur-drakon with the model and abilities of the G2/G3 drakon and ur-drakon? Because IDK what Jeff was smoking when he nerfed them and replaced the model with what looks like a McDonalds toy that survived a factory fire.

     

    The short answer is yes.

    The long answer is yes, but they won't be as big.


  2. 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.

    Jeff replaces named characters with equivalents if you kill them earlier in the game. He does it in other games.

     

    The hidden Shaper camp before Northforge is harder, but Delicious Vlish mentioned wiping it out.

     

    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.


  4. 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".

    Another challenge you could try to take on if you're on the Rebel path is clearing out Alwan's assault group when you first encounter them in Northforge Warrens, instead of scouting the area and retreating as the game tells you to do.

     

    I tried that.

    They wiped the floor with me.


  6. 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.


  7. 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. 


  8. 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. 


  9. 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?" 


  10. 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?


  11. 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.


  12. 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...


  13. 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! :-)
