A suggestion about a question (mark) ...

Post by Eric of Atrophy on Wed Mar 18, 2015 6:48 am

Hiya, y'all!

The Amethyst Dragon, I just saw these (MMO-style quest markers) and thought "Oh, snap!" These little dudes would be great for marking quests, easier to find for new folks and whatnot.

What thinks all y'all?

Well, then, I remembered that the quests were on the vc system now, so that would be problematic.  Plus, not to mention, a breaking of the immersion.  So I guess I just nixed my own suggestion.

Still, I am curious to what y'all think.  Could something like these markers work?

if I recall, The Amethyst Dragon may have already implemented a way for quest NPC's to be highlighted by some method. Perhaps reviewing the additions and suggestions might yield results.

I actually like those. While they do kind of mess with immersion, if I implemented them I could use one of the currently utilized NWNX2 plugins to make the VFXs only show up in-game for people that have toggled on an option to use them.

Would take some time to make them work, but I've seen similar things in use recently and they are helpful. Very immersion-breaking from my perspective, but helpful. Smile

I do like them, and when I play The Old Republic, those funky triangles help out lots!  Would be an awesome toggle idea, certainly!
