  1. I would love to see the Living Lands. It sounds like a really wild setting, where you literally might find anything in the next valley. As the wiki puts it: The Living Lands is a frontier island area in the far north; a land of wild weather, strange beasts, and hundreds of difficult-to-reach valleys containing oddities never before seen (according to the people who find them) by mortals. It is a lawless land where communities band together, fall apart, and fight petty wars with each other constantly. The territory has a reputation for breeding oddballs and madmen. @Theonlygarby There are a couple of world maps floating around. this thread is a good starting point
  2. Awesome! Thank you so much! I stopped going through the lax folders at around laxd or e.
  3. In what gametable file(s) is the basic class info contained? I would like to mod the Arcane Archer class to remove the -5 Accuracy penalty for non-Imbued attacks. But I cannot find where that is in the Characters, Abilities, or ProgressionTables files. Unless it is in one those and I just don't know what I am looking at?
  4. Nevermind. I spent a while looking at Let's Play videos, and it appears to be normal.
  5. I have done this fight twice in the last few days (went back to an earlier save for other reasons and had to do it again). In one fight the town went hostile against me. In the other some people actually helped me, mainly the James Van der Beek fellow. He casts some Suppress Afflictions and I think some heal spells my way. I think the problem is that the townspeople just get in the way of your AOE spells. You have to be extremely careful not to use them, lest you hurt a bystander. The second time I did it I never used any AOE attacks, and no one went hostile against me. It also took frakking forever.
  6. I am not sure if this is really an issue or not. For the last few days the items I look at in my inventory look odd when I click on them to view their details. There is a big empty space in the middle of the stats that I don't think was there before. The Defiant Apparel is one of the most blatant. I am pretty sure there was a hyperlink in "Captain's Eye" that is now gone as well. Almost everything else looks the same This is happening to gloves, boots, capes, necklaces, rings, etc... Only armor seems to be unaffected, and their descriptions look normal. Is this how they are supposed to look, and I am just misremembering? Or is there something wrong here?
  7. It was a legacy I created rather than imported from a save. I did it so long ago that I don't remember what I put down for Pallegina. I know I did not say she died. I cannot remember if I said she followed orders or not. Or if I said I never met her. I am pretty sure I did say I met her though, because I did want to have her for companion. From the googling I did, there does not seem to be any way to go back and see what choices you made in your saved legacies either. I found the file (I saved the custom legacy) and tried to open it with Notepad++ and a hex editor. But it is all just gibberish. In the googling I did, I found one person who seems to have had the same issue, and she just magically appeared at the Vailian Trade Company headquarters after a very long time. So maybe I am having the same issue as them.
  8. I cannot find Pallegina anywhere. When I went to the palace for the first time, I got Maia as a companion. Count Nichese protested, and said he should be able to do the same. Then the Rauatai Hazanui said he'd have plenty of time to insert a spy in my ranks later. Count Nichese said I should come talk to him. The scene ended, and the Vailians, Rauatian's, Queen, etc... all vanished. I went to the Vailian Trade Company HQ in Queen's Berth. The Count was nowhere to be found, nor was Pallegina. I used a custom legacy for this game, and I cannot remember what choices I set for Pallegina. I did not meet her in the street in Queen's Berth like I have read happens if she failed her quest in PoE1. So I assumed I would meet her in the palace. I tried going back to my save from before I entered the palace, and it still plays out exactly the same, with no sign of her. Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a console command to spawn her?
  9. So I looted Arkemyr's Vault and stole liberated the Harapo Epic. Now who do I give it to? From the wiki it looks like I get the same amount of money from either Tumara or Netehe. One is a Rauatai, and I expect that if I give it to her it will give me a bonus to the Deadfire Company's disposition to me. The other is a Huana, and I suppose that will make the Queen more kindly disposed to me. Is that all? Or does going one way or the other close any quests off to me?
  10. TBH, I gave up on the using the AI at all, and turned it off for all the characters. Otherwise they go running straight into every fireball I cast. It means micro-managing. But that way works.
  11. That may well be. But it only took me about two days to figure it out. I talk to other people about my experiences. After the first day some were excited about what I told them. One was pretty much on the verge of buying it. But after the second day I told them about the lack of big dungeons, or large clearable outdoor areas, and they weren't so enthused.
  12. They might mean how in the Enhanced Edition you could create a custom party, rather than use the standard companions. You had to start a multiplayer game to do it though. I never tried it myself. I understand it made it ike the Icewind Dale games were, or like using the hired Adventurers in Pillars.
  13. Thanks for pointing that out. I fiddled with the VFX slider in the graphics settings, and got them to turn off. It does make figuring things out a lot easier.
  14. I have been playing PoE2 for about a week now. I love the setting, and how it is a blend of Polynesia and the Caribbean, how the Vailians are half Renaissance Italian, half African, How the Ruatai seem to be big Asian people, and so on. Even the music with its deep drum beats and buzzing didgeridoos, create this very unique feeling that I don't often get from CRPGs. One thing I do not like is the 'watercolor' artwork. I have been replacing it with standard artwork from portrait packs and shrinking them down to size. While doing so I noticed something. There are a lot of people of color in this game. A lot more than there were in PoE1. I have been forced to reuse a lot of pictures over and over again, as there are no where near enough portraits of people of color out there. While there is an over-abundance of white males and females in every portrait mod I download. So yeah, I would not be surprised if the game is not 'white' enough for a lot of people. OTOH, there are several things I do not like about the game. Namely all the sailing around and walking across empty islands only to be rewarded by a few text encounters, and maybe if I am lucky a one or two room dungeon. TBH, I sometimes wonder if I am playing the old Sid Meier Pirates game. I am an old school CRPG fan. I love me a big dungeon packed to the gills with mobs of monsters to cut my way through. PoE2 is clearly not that. Dungeons are rare, small, and posses only a handful of encounters. So it might be that which is keeping people away.
  15. While I love PoE1, I did have that problem of not being able to see what was happening because of all the special effects going off. I would have thought the answer might be to simply tone down the vfx. Or give you the option of making them invisible with a keypress so you can see, issue orders, and then turn them back on and enjoy the show.
