Idea - "Challenge" mod sets

Post by xolotl » March 22nd, 2014, 12:10 am

I just had the thought that it might be fun to construct a mod where in addition to maps, you'd constrain the actual character as well. You'd distribute a "char" file along with the maps which had the values you'd want set, and which had the XP/Level set up to the max values (after which you can never level up again).

Attribute/Skill upgrades could only happen via mechanisms that the maps allow for. You might offer some airlocked areas to allow the player to at least choose between some slightly-differing starting emphases or something, if wanted... (Unrelated: that may be the first time in my life I've had cause to pluralize "emphasis.")

Anyway, it could be fun. With the gradual official mod support getting rolled in, it'd be slightly more difficult to install for users, since we'll be moving away from having to modify savegame slots.
