I voted for more wilderness, since BG1 was my favorite Infinity Engine game for just this reason. I think being able to take off into wide open places and discover small situations, caves, and encounters did wonders for the atmosphere, making the world feel more realized and placing greater emphasis on how small your party was in the scope of things. While I thought the engine and gameplay upgrades for BG2 were great and the stroyline was stronger, I was actually disappointed that there was nowhere to go exploring, just 5 or so maps outside of the city. Of course I'm happy to put my money where my mouth is, and new companions is a huge plus too. Only concern would be timing - will this delay the launch substantially, or would new funds allow people to be pulled of other projects to the eternity team?
