Community Input

It's sometimes held against us, but we think very highly of our fans and our community. We end up calling NPCs after them (hi Arhu), we create encounters with them (hello Shrimpo). We also don't just take their feedback for granted: we often find valuable ideas in their posts, ideas that we implement, changes that we do make...

Divinity: Original Sin will not be treated differently. We are for instance taking another look at the RPG system, taking your feedback into account. We are reading your forum posts, your comments on Kickstarter, your private messages and emails, and even if we don't always find the time to answer, we do pick out the things that we think are important or fun. Here are two examples.

Burning zombies

The following message was sent to Swen, and unfortunately, it will not be implemented as a surprise, it will just be implemented.

"Sorry for two PM's in one day, this idea I want hidden and made as a surprise if you like it enough to implement.

(...) fire can burn the skin off a zombie and they become a skeleton. When they became a skeleton, their traits and attack methods changed to that of a skeleton. Their HP remained where it was from the initial attack of the fire or previous attacks. The fire would simply burn off their skin over a few attack rounds (...)

Since so much detail has gone into this, that would be interesting to have implemented."

Thanks to this successful Kickstarter, we can give monsters more interesting behaviours, more specific attacks and powers (and weaknesses), so why not create this effect for the zombies? As it turns out, an unknown scribe had already reported on this in his "Source User's Guide To Adventuring". What a coincidence!

Excerpt from "A Source User's Guide To Adventuring"

"One of the more nasty encounters you can have with the undead, is to be attacked by zombies. Many make the mistake of underestimating these dim-witted corpses and very often they are regretting their hubris as their innards are being drawn from their shredded bellies.

Zombies are slow, yes, but they are highly resilient to most weapons you can carry, and -neither fearing nor feeling pain- they'll pursue their prey relentlessly. My advice would therefore be to play a little trick on them that makes these putrefying pests a lot easier to deal with.

The trick? Fire! If you are versed in the basics of Source wizardry, conjuring a searing fireball is easy as pie, so cast a barrage of flame and admire your handiwork as the flesh burns right off your assailant's bones. It won't be defeated just yet, but it will be a zombie no longer! You'll now be fighting a skeletal warrior, and you can imagine how much more effective your trusty war hammer, mace or mallet will have suddenly become!"

Visuals: Ambient, Bloom, Fog, Contrast

Last month, someone posted an animated image on the Larian.com forum, comparing our lighting and color settings to what he thought they could be, or should be.

Our art director, Koen Van Mierlo, dived in, and had the following to say:

"While working on the lighting and colors of the environments, I had to take into account the speed of the characters and the pace of combat. I had to make sure the visuals were not interfering with game play: I had to strike a good balance between clarity and nice looking visuals. We noticed that high contrast imagery was hard to read and was affecting game play too much; so we decided to go for less contrasted environments.

Combat and movement speed have since changed a lot, and this meant that certain decisions regarding game play and visual clarity were not necessarily valid anymore. So after reading the forum post of Xodetaetl, Swen asked me to reiterate on the lighting to see if it would be possible to increase the contrast. So that's what I did. Now that we have more time to iterate over the game, thanks to this Kickstarter, I tried out different settings. I ended up toning down the ambient settings, decreasing the bloom, tweaking the fog distance settings and tampering with the contrast values."

Here are the results of his tamperings.

Bellegar En-Counter

Yesterday, we hit 3000 likes on our Larian Studios Facebook page. That means: 3 encounters with Bellegar in Divinity: Original Sin. Can we make that 4000?

And in closing

Not all fan input will make it to the game. Because sometimes... you really are... Sick Things... (But that's okay. So are we.)

      you can almost guarantee very few people have balanced/calibrated displays, so i'd vote for having advanced colour/rendering options in-game so people can tune as much or as little of the visuals as they wish. i'd rather have this in the options than have to rely on ENB or SweetFX to configure things.
      perhaps theres a way to make these visual settings community shareable too.

      Creator Ren-Wei Yang on April 18, 2013

      I'd like to see feature to make NPC more useful, especially in combat.
      Usually for optimum control, npc partner are usually useless, or, just a distraction for enemy so player can carry out bigger strike, waiting for cool down, etc.
      NPC partner either be there as auto pilot mana shield, or just be there for story purpose, which is very let down, and sort of knock you out of this RPG world.

      If it's possible, I'd like to see some dynamic arrangement that makes NPC or some story relevant characters more lively:
      1. be able to pull enemy to NPCs, ie, guards that either fight with you, or scared and do something dumb. Player can choose to buff them to calm them down(or knock them out?), or direct their skills and movement(like a team command?), or leave them be, or transform them into temporary stronger creature, or other crazy stuff. Just make them more useful than just there to provide dialogs.

      2.surprise outcome, to make choices more relevant, in above example, if one NPC happen to hate a player so much, he/she might decide to turn their back against players. Just when you think the battle is over and prepare to restore health and all the spells in cool down. If the roll successed, you might be in trouble that the buffed NPC-turned-dragon simply hated you do this to him(or just doubt that you steal his stuff even if he has no proof), or he just simply think he can take on players and turn to the dark side.

      3.No more invincible/must die characters, if player go mad, and decide to wipe the town, they should be able to do it, they lost the quests, if no one escapes, it will only be rumor in another part of the world. I don't like invincible NPCs simply because he can't not die here for story purpose, so we just abuse his invincibility to get more Exp. Or simply die with scripted event for story purpose without a proper fight. That sucks majorly almost every time it happened in a game( at least for me).

      4. Be able to buy/sell with any NPC, if condition check passes.(ie they don't hate you, they have enough money, etc. ) There could still be shops, but transaction is what people do. Not like some random pass-by would have a crazy enchanted unique sword to buy from, but so that it's a more interesting interaction with the world. Say if you sell a sword to the guard NPC just fought with you and impressed by your skills. you get new loot, the NPC guard appreciate your stuff and gladly buy it off you with reasonable price. If some time later you come back to this spot and that Guard is practicing with your sword or is fighting another mob, wouldn't it be a great experience? Even if he no longer has it, it could still be a topic to talk about, and maybe player wanna know where the sword is, ended up in who's hand, etc.

      Overall, I think NPC is seriously under explored are in RPGs in general. I hope this won't break gameplay wise too much, and consider this is financially a much smaller scale project compare to say Eternity or just funded Torment, but I think you guys have the tools in place, just may or may not have the human resource to put in efforts like this.

      @Rain Koor good point, if the game is as mod friendly as its shaping up to be, then dont dwell too much on the lighting, gamma, contrast etc. An ENB will be sure to follow even if you do :)

      Creator Bolter on April 18, 2013

      The (new) after pics look far better to my eyes - but as some have already mentioned - u cannot please everyone.....as some poor old fools are clearly blind :P

      Agreed, if possible allow the user to tweak with pre-made defaults for those of us that aren't too bothered or of enough no-how to play with the settings.

    14. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Rain Koor on April 18, 2013

      I'd suggest you guys not to dwell too long on ideal lighting and contrast settings. You really can't please everybody. Just add a basic gamma setting. There's always ENB for the people who want more advanced control over light and gamma settings.

      Creator Razvan Florentin Popescu on April 18, 2013

      yeah, don't forget to add borderless window setting.

      My suggestion is (as dark souls 2 is in theme) don't add difficulty settings, just tweak it on a single one to perfection

      Also keep it dark, dark, so it will be like discovering a treasure when you walk up with a flame next to a mural or something. I know artists probably hate this idea.. but please. hidden gems have bigger impact on the long run

      Creator Robrecht - Weresheep.net of Original Sin on April 18, 2013

      After some deliberation, taking arguments posted here into account, I'm split in two on which ones I like best myself. There indeed doesn't seem to be a consensus, not even between me, myself and I.
      Therefore, if technically possible without too much hassle, I think that making somewhat advanced color options available to the end user could cater for the different expectations, tastes, hardware configurations, etc. end users have.
      On the other hand, some people probably couldn't care less, so having presets, for example mimicking the two styles depicted here, could keep them oblivious about the matter.

      the before after images are affected a lot by monitor quality, on my laptop I can't even tell the difference, but on my PC monitor they were very different. Its nice having darker blacks and that is a very modern look(which is good i think) as long as we don't lose any detail. Its a tricky balance but those screenshots are lookin pretty good to me!

      first the first (cave), I like the foggyness ( in the background ) , although the after makes the background ( destination pop, the light at the end of the tunnel ?) so maybe tone down the foggyness and it could be spot on.

      second one I like the green heu but the shadows are a tad too hard (but its close )

      thirth one, here in this setting i like the hard shadow and prefer the after

      Count me in on those that prefer the former settings. The new ones remind me too much of the super contrasty ENB settings people have used in Skyrim. They might make more "vivid" screen caps, but they're not exactly great to actually play with IMO.

      You are hearing on input?
      Forget the classless system and make something more advanced! The best is neither a classless system nor a class based system, but something in between.
      -> Classes for some skills + a large variety of skills that every class can or cannot have.

      That way when you assign every npcs/character a class, it will lead to a bigger diversity. And certain classes can have benefits and weaknesses. Weaknesses are difficulty to get into a classless system.

      The bright bright green fog in the church scene isn't my cup of tea.

      The fog and lighting at the back of the cave in the first image once gave much needed depth. Now that is lost.

      It's just a shame. I think the original art was very competant and now it's not appealing at all (to me!).

      @Caro
      Upon reading your concerns, I started fiddling with the settings of my monitor. I must say that if I revert it to its default settings, I do get what you are saying. The reduced overall brightness and increased contrast hide details that could be seen before indeed.

      However, with my modified settings (especially the gamma config), the new versions look noticeably better to me. I like how the floor in the first cage for example has less glare, giving the impression that there is a kind of white film covering the image.

      On the other hand, It is also this glare which actually (ironically) helps recognizing distinct features with the default settings.

      I think that having in-game controls for gamma and brightness/contrast might be a good idea to cater for the different needs and hardware configurations out there.
