There was a post about making of the current party (5 members) a "combat(or active) party" and removing the party size limitation on the new party ("non-active party", "roleplay party", "real party"). he/she mention some pros.
The companions would behave as if it were on the party, but wouldn't be physically represented.
Essentially to separate the combat party and the roleplay party so one doesn't ruin the other
Great idea, but still doubt will be implemented.
So Devs: can you make this easily moddable?
Made a new topic because this is specifically about making it moddable and its mainly directed to the developers.
