Aenea Comparable To Skyrim

Post by Elhanan on Wed Nov 30, 2011 10:56 am

If The Amethyst Dragon were to have more writers, designers, and time, I contend that Skyrim might be the result.

* Several races - check!
* Character Customization - check!
* Classes not defined by a single build - check!
* World scope for areas - check!
* Not limited to scripted Quests - check!
* Many dragons - check!
* Misc - items, lore, User Friendly Rest and Eating systems, etc.

Cannot recall the number of times since installation that I have smiled at the resemblances to Aenea. And while Skyrim may have more stuff due to increased people and budgets, Aenea may have more spells and items.

Any other players seeing the same thing?

* Skyrim bonus - no alignments! Actually yielded to RP as events changed my world view; not 3E restrictions!
* Aenea bonus - active DM's with Techie support!

My PC could install Skyrim just find, although the graphic card is slightly old....the game stuck the graphics to lowest setting by default (which I kind of expected). Also experienced another problem when I tried to create a new game, the game shut down completely. -_-;
No Skyrim for me until I have figured out what caused that . . . Sad

Maybe it didn't like the comparisons to Aenea ... Twisted Evil

Personally, I have found that no matter how wonderful a game is, it just does not have the level of awesomeness that Aenea possesses. It's just not possible. At all. Period. The only thing that's as awesome as Aenea is Aenea.

I was play testing Star Wars: TOR over the weekend, and there were multiple times when I thought "Aenea did it better." (Don't get me wrong, ST: TOR was pretty cool).

Too funny; was not able to launch and test SWTOR again due to a frequent bug. So I used the time to play Skyrim instead. Suspect

Updating my graphics drivers placed my 2 yr old graphics card at medium settings, and no bugs encountered (other than having to use silly Steam installation bypass). There are some tips for Techies out there, a new patch, and already some mods to aid visuals. I found most answers in the BSN Forums on the long, long Skyrim thread in OT; recommend looking near p320 for 11-11-11 starting dates onward.

Personal observation: the awesome that is Aenea is The Amethyst Dragon and small world m/p support; not Aenea itself.

What I see in both games is the loving care of the creators in making their children as User Friendly as possible.

In both worlds, food and eating are available, and both have benefits that are available for usage, but it is easily bypassed for those not wanting to get into such systems; same for Resting. Both games allow for disguises, crafting, poisons, etc; lots of detailing that may be explored if desired, but is not mandatory for play.

Still no Skyrim for me. Haven't been able to figure out the problem I experiences when trying to play...starting to wonder if the cause is because my graphic card simply is too old to handle Skyrim {even with the latest driver installed}. Sad Neutral silent

According to that my PC pass all minimum requirements to be able to play Skyrim...must be something else wrong causing the problem I am experiencing. silent

(My PC also pass all but 2 of the recommended requirements to play it; it's a bit short on Ram (1 GB to be exact)...and as expected, the video card is slightly less than the required)

What I love about this game thus far: closest to a PnP experience one may have in a solo setting, IMO.

While I personally prefer the scripted storytelling of Bioware games to that of other companies, Skyrim has me in mind of a PnP GM unfolding the action and activities as I choose to travel, quest, or simply rest and relax. Supposedly the way the game is designed is that sub-quests and encounters will alter in every play, so it avoids feeling too tired, and if one dislikes a storyline; skip or alter it to suit your own. For instance, I am not keen on helping everyone when treated rudely; be it mortal or not, so I can choose to ignore a quest if given (main story may be an exception, but it is on hold while buffing the character currently).

Where it could use some The Amethyst Dragon loving is in Player housing, as the homes I have owned thus far look swell, but are often unpleasant in theory (eg; firepit near front door, porch can exit off of hillside, unwelcome visitors, etc). But it is very nice to have a few places to stash memorabilia, and crafting new items, too.

FWIW - the humor of unplanned encounters is compelling. For example, when fighting a dragon, I have also been interrupted by passing escapees, hired thugs, and even nearby religous fanatics that want me to avoid getting gore on their clothing!

Give ReadyBoost a try. It makes me capable of playing NWN and some of the 3D mmos I play on my NETBOOK.

I installed Skyrim, but since it's single player and a bit laggy on my XP system, I haven't gone very far. I was actually trying out its predecessor Oblivion for the first time last month, and that worked fairly well on my system-- but although the world is beautiful and interesting, the leveling is complex (if you don't know exactly what you're doing, you can actually get weaker in relation to the hostiles as you level up) and there's a lot of things to know ahead of time, like bewares with the questlines, that made it tedious.

I find Aenea much more compelling to play, not only because of the interesting content, but because of multiplayer interaction with you lovely people and now with my playing bud Entropic Chaos since he finally made it here. Nothing beats real and interesting unpredictable live players, when they are cool. NWN is still the easiest game for me to just play without hassles, and with the attention to detail in Aenea, it's become my favorite version of NWN.

And NWN still has the best camera angles of any game I've tried, because when I'm restricted to close-in for very long, I get motion-sick (can't even handle first-person at all). Oblivion made me crazy because although you can walk around in a nice spacious third-person view, in order to search for, find, and pick up anything you have to switch to a cramped nauseating first-person view. I'm apprehensive that Skyrim may be similar.

Re: Aenea Comparable To Skyrim

Never played Oblivion, but am aware that many changes occured for Skyrim. For instance, there are only three ability scores and one may be increased with each new lvl:

* Magika - mana pts
* Health - HP
* Stamina - combo of CON and STR, as it also raises Encumberance

Increasing the many Skills seems to increase XP, and if my obsevation is not too bad, so does exploration for small increases. Now where have we all seen that before?

Thing is, one may play completely different than others. I have read several posts of those Power Lvl thru repeating Skill use, but I have avoided that due to the tedium. Currently, my PC just hit 35th after 137 hrs, and the only Skill I have maxed is Stealth (and I highly recommend it for those that love to play such a character). My Archery skill just hit 80, but if one wants to practice shooting targets, then I guess this could be higher, too.

And I played the first half of the game in 3rd person; now use back and forth for specific occasions. I still have much to learn; just found out that some traps may be disarmed via Lockpicking, and Swimming is a great way to find extra loot.

No solo game will best Aenea, but both are quite enjoyable. And no CRPG will ever best the PnP experience, but am glad I have had both experiences.

I'm starting out the stealth path as well, haven't made it very far in the game yet but from what I can see, the graphics are stunning (I keep looking around at the scenery, and forgetting to advance the plot!XD).

I sure could use some more strength though, my packratting skillz does not make it easier to move forward in a quick tempo since I tend to loot everything. No Rolling Eyes

I started off by increasing Stamina every lvl until 250 or so; then others to 200. Stamina does boost Encumberance, and containers in a Home are a good place to stash loot.

And my novice caster (and secret leader of the Dark Brotherhood assassins) just became appointed Archmage of the College of Magic. And you are correct; they were desperate! But the new digs are terrific; includes a safe and lots of Aracana freebies!

I, personally, cannot stand 1st-person view for very long either, but have been enjoying the game in 3rd person view. Smile
I don't think there's anywhere it stat you have to switch to a certain camera angle in the game...but I haven't come very far in the game yet either (haven't played since saturday).

I find sniping is a bit easier in 1st, but for normal archery 3rd is fine; maybe even better if the target is swift. And if shelves or containers are filled, sorting them a bit closer in scope helps a little.

But as mentioned, I played ca.50 hrs or so after the tutorial all in 3rd, as this is my preference.

Well, coolie, maybe it's a better game than Oblivion in that respect, if you're not obliged to be in first-person to search or pick up things. I didn't get beyond the "we must escape while the dragon occupies the guards" stage, because it was lagging too bad on my system. Another 1 gig of RAM and it might work.

I found a couple goodies yesterday, and thought I would share it with you guys. Smile

First two videos featuring 2 songs from Skyrim (Age of Oppression & Age of Aggression), both sung by Malukah. She's got such a beautiful voice. Smile



The next video has been edited very good, it features scenes from various games (try see how many you recognize? :p) and set to the music from Skyrim, sung by Malukah. ^^



The lyrics in the following video are just plain hilarious; brilliant sung as well. Very Happy

The newest nVidia driver also seemed to help bring more detail to Skyrim for me; a plus since the system believes that medium is the best setting for my card.

Another Skyrim - Aenean comparison: have over 800+ hrs playing this game, and I am still finding new areas, items, etc. And I have well over 1000+ just in a couple of characters in Aenea, and still have surprises.

Lots of commitment and hard work illustrated in both games. Exclamation
