Why anyone needs any game other than Football Manager, I've no idea.

Looking forward to it. I've got Enhanced 1 on my Steam but I've been waiting for II to come out to play them both through.

Best games of my youth by a stretch, probably the best single player RPGs of all time.

Is it possible for bone helmets to be imbued with a stamina regen quality of a certain %/second?

It seems like the regeneration of stamina is incredibly slow. More so than intelligence was in relative terms on OSI.

Is there not a small risk that the people with the resources to stockpile refresh pots will dominate over those who might otherwise be better in a fight? Even with a time limit on pot use.

EA/OSI introduced Focus to help balance a bit when AoE / specials went live, are you considering trialling the same here?

Makes sense.

"You awaken from your beating, this time, but the wounds have taken their toll ((+5 damage points.)

Bottom corner when you res, or something similar?

A building like that is still pretty massive. There's a lot of scope here to get lots of people involved in character. Hiring labour, drafting militia volunteers, supplying food and water for the workers, building scaffolding and maybe a winch crane, etc.

Only really limited by the imagination.

Can you make the disguise kits so that you can pick the hairstyles, hair color and name? And make them re-usable? That way you could 1. Get disguises that aren't horribly stupid and 2. Actually use the disguise kits to give yourself another identity instead of being 8 different people over the course of a week. Maybe also make them harder to craft so they become more valuable.

Can you not pick the hair style and does the hair not default to white? That's what happened post pub16 on OSI so its definitely possible. You could dye the white, disguised hair and get your own hair back afterwards.

I do like the idea of being able to pick your disguise name, though. Would always have been useful on Europa.

If B&E larceny is becoming too easy to profit from surely it should just be approached the same as any PvP balance issue? Make lock picking harder.

Ramp up the chance of failure, make lockpicks more valuable / delicate and start introducing some brutal, devastating tinker-made traps.

Someone could get some good RP out of playing a home security specialist and traps could have some tidy consequences. You have the balls to try and rob the bank you should expect it to A. be fucking hard and B. cost you dearly if you fail. Severed arm from explosive wire trap? Next time you won't be so reckless.

I'm all for crime in RP but nothing should be free money. After reading Keres post on the forum, one of the first things I did on Martens was wander in to the bank and try my luck, purely out of curiosity to be honest.

I'm currently wearing someone's boots and shirt. Thanks for that. It really shouldn't be that easy though.
