  1. I'm not seeing my save file I started on my Macbook when I launch the game in Windows. Looks like saves are locked into the OS unless Steam Cloud is just being screwy
  2. Are save files universal or are they locked into an OS? I'd like to be able to keep a save between my desktop and Macbook
  3. If the heads were a little smaller it might do a decent job of making characters more distinct. At least for me, I have pretty bad eyesight haha.
  4. Would it be possible to change "sex" to "gender" in character creation? It would be more accurate and inclusive.
  5. While I agree with you I don't think anyone should sit down in front of the computer, start a new role playing game, and find out their character can't resemble them. In a game about choice making the character an avatar for the person playing the game is the most important part.
  6. Im pretty sure you would need stamina too, unless you were hoping for a fast kill. Heavyweight dude isn't bad. He looks like a bloke at least and not an underwear model. I like my man with a bit of tummy. Same for my women Boobs, they are serious biznizz. Indeed.
  7. We used to enslave people with dark skin so I hope Obsidian doesn't let you play as a dark skinned character. It simply doesn't make sense. youseewhatididthere
  8. Oh definitely! Here's a character I designed (my friend did the actual painting):
  9. So women are weak and incapable of accomplishing anything other than being your personal eye candy?
  10. Just because we live in a sexist world doesn't mean you should exclude women from playing what classes we want. You're not a very nice person :/
  11. It settles a setting's internal logic, which is entirely realistic. Only if that setting explicitly redefines men and women and their abilities. Just like you assume that the sun rises in the east, you assume that men are stronger than women, unless told otherwise. Fallout: New Vegas was a video game designed by... wait for it... Obsidian Entertainment. In this game there are no stat penalties for playing as a women nor as a man. While not realistic this was most likely done to not limit a player's options and allow to play whatever role as whatever gender. Project Eternity is an upcoming video game designed by.... the exact same people. Why would they suddenly decide to limit the player's options in such a way when it is so rarely done? The only game I can think of with stat penalities is Arcanum which gives a +1 to strength for male characters and a +1 to Endurance for female characters.
  12. See, here's my thing. Our party is gonna be... what? Four people? Six people? Something like that. We're going to be playing with a tiny subset of the entire population of a world. We are not gathering every single man and woman together and having them square off in a gladiator arena until only one sex remains. We are talking specific people. Maybe one of those people happens to be a woman who, through a combination of genetics and upbringing, is strong and talented in a fight? More so than most, albeit not necessarily all, men? Spoiler alert: that's vaguely... realistic? I was reading through all the posts since I've been gone and have been watiing for someone to say this. Yes the average woman is weaker than the average man. But this doesn't mean the strongest woman is weaker than the weakest man. I very highly doubt my character will be locked out of melee combat roles. Who was the unarmed combat specialist in Fallout: New Vegas? A woman? But this thread said that's impossible! Yes, because using a GAME as a reference is a great way to settle the realism of a hypothetical situtation. Project Eternity isn't a video game? I better withdraw my $100 pledge because I have been misled.
