@Flatfingers: Adding areas is kinda tricky, since we likely won’t have the “Kit pieces”, just the baked statics which might not be stored as separate items: we’d need to chop them up and make a kit from them, before putting them together. Plus, Unity crashes when importing a bunch of their resources when I export them. I’ve logged a bug with Unity, and they’ve reproduced it, so it might get fixed, but… I know how fast dev goes, that’s not likely happening any time soon, I imagine, unless it’s a bug affecting a lot of people.
Adding objects should be a lot more doable :)
Getting any remaining runes working is fersure top of my list, as well as fleshing out the magic system with more discoverable and extrapolatable spells. Maybe add more verb meanings for existing spells?
Dialogue trees is probably number two of my personal list, though I lack the writing chops to fill the trees :( You never know what’ll make it into patch 4, anyway. Could be we’ll already have the infrastructure in there :)
Adding new monster and trap assets will be hard, but probably feasible. I’ve not done this outside of Bethesda’s stuff, but it seems feasible in theory.
@smpita: Given an OSX port is already planned by OSE, I doubt that;ll need much work from fans, other than bugfixes. Though I don’t think the Unity tools are very full-featured for anything other than PC.
@DawnrazorDCLXVI : well, if there’ll be modding, there’ll be nude and sex mods. It’s just the way things are. Honestly, I wouldn’t be half as interested in modding if that wasn’t how things were :D Sex is fun!
But romance… gay or straight, romance is hard. You need to add enough dialog, enough shared experiences, enough tension, that the player actually cares about the other character. It’s a very rare game that can manage it well, and I think few modders have that level of narrative skill. We’re mostly engineers, not great writers, sadly :(
Dual wielding rocket launchers and rocket-jumping seems a little redundant given magic and jump skills, but I guess it’s doable if there’s interest.
