So... how long do you reckon before there is the PoE version of BG Tutu?  (For those that don't know, tutu was a mod that ran BG1 in the BG2 engine).

 

Josh addressed this on SomethingAwful, and his answer looks like "a while." Seems like there's a lot of mechanical and under-the-hood changes, which would make running Pillars in the Pillars 2 engine... challenging.

 

(He might be underestimating the power of obsessive-compulsive modders though.)

I like how it's already being discussed! :w00t:   I'm sure someone will crack it, they managed it with BG1 and 2 which had quite a few changes in basic mechanics itself I recall.

Could we have proper shadows this time? Not the potato quality crap Pillars of Eternity currently has...

I'm not sure if this was answered before. Basically there's a very high quality model of Eder in 3D on the figstarter page screenshot. Is that model going to be used in-game? I'm asking this because this model does not match the in-game comparison of Eder in PoE and PoE:Deadfire. The one that Eder is smoking with his pipe. So what  is this  highly 3D model of Eder for? Is it just for concept art?

PC requirements?

Indeed you're gonna be needing a pc to play the game...

 

This made me giggle more than it should.

I assume it's the inventory paperdoll.

So what specs do you need to run the game? Will linux still be supported?

 

Feargus answered this today: requirements unchanged from Pillars 1.

Hey guys!

 

As PrimeJunta has said:

This is true, we want to stay as closely as possible to the same requirements as the first game.

The first game didn't exactly run very well ...

(That is,  when unit count in areas was high, FPS dropped into the 20s - which is very poor)

Even back then, it didn't take much to run, so most cellphones should be able to run the new one now. ^_^

Graphics look significantly improved yes but I am a bit curious about performance. Given that It is going to be streaming/loading type and with this more detailed maps, lighting and all. I guess we can only find out during beta.
