Knowing already that I plan on making a few Mods for Elemental and wanting to get started on my end as soon as I can (and when I'm feeling well enough) , I have a few questions about some values. I have another question regarding the overall process from here on out which is why this isn't in the "Elemental Modding" section. I have two major questions at this point which I also am guessing a lot of other people are thinking the same question and would like to have some insight as well, so here goes.
The numbers that will be seen in Beta Two, I.E. "Values" like "How much Strength a Ogre has", or "How Many Attacks Does a Spider Get" . Are the numbers that will be seen in Beta 2 (of course knowing they are subject to change) "close" to what you expect them to be at Launch Time?
I only ask this because if I know one way or the other it is much easier for me to start planning Values for some of my monsters and NPC's for my Mod. I'm not asking if they are "set in stone values". Of course any values this early are going to be subject to change and balancing. Perhaps something will be extremely nerfed in a beta patch, or in the opposite way maybe something gets tweaked up. Either way, just knowing if these numbers are "Close" to the actual release values would be a big help. If it's still too early to tell, that's fine too and completely understandable.
How much player tweaking and input do you really have time to implement still Before Release? . Knowing how much "say so" , as it were, that we have left before release would be handy as we would understand to concentrate more on Proper Balancing at this point and time. Also, the "Serious Modders" , now having the assets of Beta Two, could get to work and worry about implementing the Bigger New Ideas either in a later patch/expansion or in our own mods.
Of course we know Elemental will be upgraded and patched and more Player Suggestions and Ideas will be added over time. New content will also be made by the Community and added constantly. We know that Tons and Tons of new stuff will be coming out almost daily by users and that many of you Devs will be making stuff on your own time as users and players yourselves.
Thank You, Stardock Team, for your Excellent work thus far. Stardock has a lot to be proud of and Elemental can only add to the success and well known name that Stardock has earned by making Quality Products and Games.
