  1. Hi All, I recognize that this game has been out for over a year now and it may be too late to bring this up to any effect, but since part of the purpose of this particular forum is to discuss our "hopes and dreams" for it I thought it wouldn't it hurt to bring it up (or bring it up again if it's been discussed before). Let me start by saying that I personally think this game is bonkers good, just redic off the wall levels of care and detail and thought-out features relative to it's predecessor and relative to many other similar games. I recognize that there are some harsh criticisms of it out there relating to issues of min/maxing, weapon type balance, the AI and others, but none of that has felt like an issue to me especially considering how much of a beast this game is in terms of story, lore, world building, the writing and consistency of interactions, the voice acting, the audio and visuals, travel and exploration, and the re-tuned combat resource system. It's not hyperbolic when I say that I'm dangerously obsessed with this game right now. All that said, there is one visual design feature that my OCD won't let me not focus on constantly and bugs me to no end: weapon size scaling based on race. I love dwarves, love their typical physical and physiological design, personality and behavioral traits, their background and lore; I roll a dwarf main character in as many games as I can and their visual design in Pillars 2 is fantastically improved over what they looked like in Pillars 1, so I've been really into my dwarf playthrough... except for the fact that the visual scale of weapons shrink when equipped on a dwarf. It's particularly bad with respect to one-handed weapons. Do you love the sword Modwyr? Well if you equip her on a dwarf, the sword looks like a child's toy. Same with most other one-handed swords. Maces look like your dwarf is melee'ing with a wand. Daggers and stilettos look like you're fighting with toothpicks. And what makes these visual disparities even worse is that all weapons shrink even smaller when they are sheathed. Dwarves may be a bit shorter than humans but they're also stronger than them, as evidenced by their natural +2 Might compared to the +1 of humans. So why do dwarves have to be made to appear to need smaller weapons? They should be able to wield human-sized weapons with no problem, and I would love to see them doing so in this game. Now I'm not saying the current visual design for weapon scaling ought to be scrapped; I recognize that if you like to play an Aumaua you may dislike having your equipped weapons look too small for your body, so you like the fact that weapon sizes scale up for you. And maybe you enjoy playing an Orlan and don't want to see them carrying weapons that are comically too large for them to be wielding, so there's value in having the current visual system for weapon size scaling. What I hope and dream to see done is the addition of an option in the settings that lets you toggle race-based weapon size scaling off and on, where if you toggle the setting off then all weapons are fixed in their visual size scale to what it currently is for humans. I have no idea whether this would be something that requires a lot of technical work on the part of the devs to implement, but if it isn't something that would be that hard to do (and ya'll actually did it), it would lock this game down for me as unequivocally one of the best games I've ever had the pleasure of spending hundreds of hours obsessively playing. Just think on it a little. You'd be making this old dwarf's hopes and dreams come true
  2. I'm just curious how you feel about the Race proportions in Deadfire? Roughly at same shoulder height PoE in comparison
  3. I am little curious about does size of your race matter in the game. Can Orlan use the same warbow or two-handed mace that is used by Aumauan? I don't know the race height different but it seems to be quite huge. Should the small race have these limitations to the weapons that character can use or it's just good that you can pass the same weapon from Aumauan to the Orlan?
  4. Hi! I don´t know about you guys but personally I would have loved to see some more options during character creation regarding scale. An example could be: Character frame: Small, Medium, or large. This should be fairly easy for a programmer to create at low cost with the existing assets: Just input the different scales to the entire rig or character asset and speed up the animations accordingly to prevent sliding? What do you guys think about this? Cheer´s!
