Teioh_White Posted September 18, 2015 Share Posted September 18, 2015 I'm a big fan of doing away with random loot altogether. RNG is a terrible system, and a dev any game should try hard not lean on it. But kudos to taking 'I dont' like RNG' and going all the way to 'I want every item at the start.' Maybe those boots of evasion give a minor boost to leaps of logic as well. Could it be because it sounds like the reason you don't like random drops and less than stellar equipment is because you only want all the best equipment all the time and from there it's not much of a leap at all to just provide it at the start? No, it's that RNG is poor design by and large. I love a game where you can't get everything, as you the player have to parcel out resources. It's part of the reason the gameplay is so horrible in games Skyrim. I only put in that post the option of a later merchant, just to try to solve another problem in this game, way too much money so you can buy everything you want. I don't -want- to be able to buy everything, get everything. I want to be able to plan and priortize. Shadowrun Hong Kong's a great example, strict money limitations limit what you can get, so you have to pick and choose. But you, the player, have that choice, not some dumb RNG process. I think I was underselling the bonus to leap those boots are giving ya. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
