Without individual stealth, or an actual sophisticated spell system?

 

Nop.

The engine is capable of both. :rolleyes:

 

I'd love to see BG/BG2 in PoE's engine, but it would be a huuuge undertaking.

The unity engine is very accessible and makes content creation fairy easy. But he Baldur's Gate series has just had a remake and I have no idea why you'd want to do it again.

 

The only gripe I have with the game in the AD&D ruleset , which is completely non-intuitive. But there's no chance of that ever changing.

 

And frankly PoE doesn't look that much better than the BG series did back in 2000. And that ran on a 300 Mhz PC.

So what, just the Unity Engine, but not actually using PoE-style rules?

 

... uh, why? Just graphics?

Dark green, on the other hand, is for jokes and irony in general.

um, the "engine" is just the Unity engine.  anyone can build their own game using it, and for most of us, it would be free.

you want to redo BG in unity?  go for it.  In fact, in about 10 years even a single person could do it in their spare time.

No, because by then the current engine will be obsolete. The IE games are just as good as they ever were and modders have heroically released mods that make the games great.

 

If they do remake the IE games, aside from the lame EE crap, they should overhaul the mechanics to use the 5e ruleset.

IIRC, didn't someone redo BG in the NWN engine?  for those interested in a more graphic experience, I bet they would like that.

 

NWN2, but yeah. 's crazy.

I think it is more likely for Beamdog to strike a deal with Obsidian to cooperate on making Baldur's Gate III.

I hope not. Beamdog's original content in the EE was cringe worthy.

uh, they can't.

 

in fact, no commercial entity trying to make a crpg has permission to do so at this point.  this is in fact, the main reason PoE is not Baldur's Gate 3.

 

I for one welcome diversity, and would actually wish this game to be even FURTHER from the DnD ruleset than it is.

 

vive la difference!

I was talking about a remake of the IE games, which need to use some DnD ruleset. Given the choice between 2E and another system, I would pick 5E because 2E is bad.

There is little to nothing that could be gained by playing BG in the PoE engine.

The only major possible improvement to be made to the IE games is better graphics.

Unfortunately the original art from those games is lost, so it's not possible to do, or Beamdog would have done it.

 

 

 

I'd also say a better inventory management system but that seems beyond the capabilities of game designers outside of the modding community for WoW.

Speaking of rebuilding IE games in different engines, you all have seen the BG2 remake in the Dragon Age engine that's being worked on, right?  I played through the Irenicus dungeon portion; wasn't half bad, though I rather doubt they'll ever finish the whole game.

Beamdog doesn't have that kind of power. They need to beg just so they can  spam their stupid 'remakes'.
