All of that massively spoilt the beginning for  me.

 

I 100 percent agree with you on Enderal's beginning. It is far from ideal. I just found the Sun Coast to be dreadfully boring, tbh. I dread it when starting a new playthough and try to run to the Ark as fast as I can. That said, the beginning is pretty much the only major downside and the rest of the game makes up for this flaw tenfold

Feels a bit better now I've sorted some of my start snags. I have to set in-game bright to 75%, but first my Nvidia display to +20% bright, +40% contrast, and +.76 gamma each time I play! Then back to normal after! Why don't Nvidia provide profiles?

But still getting used to the devs' mindsets. Searched and searched a way from the beach, eventually by chance, moving close to something I got an interact frob - but nothing worked. After several minutes of head-banging, I noticed a tiny message up in the top left of my 55" display (yeah, that's the downside of a big screen.)

"I need something else."

Well, that's erm... helpful. Search and search and search for I know not what. Go back to the beach? Dunno. Scoured the area blindly and finally glimpsed a frob deep in dark foliage. Pure blind luck. That's a bit much for a mission-critical key.

Haha, wow. It's incredible, how differently people can perceive such things. I found the intro to be very intriguing, actually. First the dream with father to set the scene with a beautiful soundtrack and a drastic turning point, then the ship trip that serves as a short tutorial and to configure your character much similar to the Morrowind intro, then that mysterious veiled lady appears and does the unspeakable, then a dramatic showdown on the ship deck, and finally you're left shipwrecked on the coast of Enderal. All of that so mysterious, that I kept wondering what is happening here and so, I eagerly started playing to learn more about all of this.

Ha, I guess I should clarify. I love the opening scene on the homestead (horrifying, lol), and the ship scene, but those are both like 5 minute scenes, whereas time on the Sun Coast seems to drag a little longer than it should. There was just something about the Sun Coast that didn't hold my interest. But once you head toward Ark, then it was all fun and games and not a single complaint

Interesting how each of us sees this differently. For me Sun Coast was super pleasant just because it's Sun Coast - bright, colorful and inviting, great to get to know the new systems, learn about the game world etc. Of course the walk to Ark was amazing and after that the game truly opened up, but I really enjoyed the beginning.

      Taking a break to alleviate burnout. In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have jumped into a map-making contest so quickly after just finishing another project and especially with my busy schedule, but I do believe I have something that the community will enjoy. No clue if I'll be able to finish it on time for the competition if I factor in a break, but I'd rather take my time and deliver something of quality rather than engage in development crunch or lose part of the map's soul to burnout.

      Working on an update for my mission By The Cookbook. If anyone that played it has any further bugs to report, please let me know.
      I posted more details about the update in the mission thread.

      Happy birthday to me!
      Yes, today's my birthday and as much as I want to play The Dark Mod, I won't until it's late Autumn, where it should be a bit chilly in my place and there's some wind too.
      For now, it's time to enjoy my birthday, if any of you want to play a great fan mission in my honour...Well that's asking too much, just play the mission because it's fun, not because of me, enjoy it yourself! 💪
