    I think that's a good idea for higher level quests but i think level 1-10 should be rather easy and then that you change the quests difficulty and quantity slowly and that you at max level have extremly difficult quests.

    Guys I made nice progress with Quest System.
    Just few things left to be done.

    But there is one HUGE problem and I need your help.
    How to make player gain quests at first place ^_^

    Few ways:
    • Should I use old system.
    • Should I use interact ability.
    • Maybe Dialog Buttons.
    • Or something else.

    I think you should keep the old system since it's something you don't see in alot of maps and I like that.

    I think that it might be good to add a golden frame on the quest icons since that'd make it more clearly which icons that are quests and which are not.

    One way could be creating totally new quest table system. Like hero select but for quests. There you could read info about quest like what need to be done and who gave you this quest and so on.

    - You did not use the old system right eh?

    Ok guys I imported new system and linked it with old one, it should look like old one but code is now based on structs instead on hashtables.
    Well I guess you don't care about background activity so I will just say that it look better than old one :)
    Progress so far: (1 Optional Quest)

    Also I made progress with abilities (60%)

    Are you building quests on your own thinkings or quest ideas thread?

    -If you want I can help you doing some character informations for the quest characters and ideas as well.

    You will see, right now I need around 20 min for new quest. But so far I created only 1 and removed old ones.
    But there will be around 10 quests when I upload map.

    I suggest to build the link to assassin guild (change name to Thieves Guild) from the stolen relic quest. You can receive the quest from 2 different character. The quard of thieves quild base campment and from the man that you have been receiving it from so far. With giving the relic to the thieves quild you will be abled to entry to the guild places of thieves and that way joining them by doing more quests. But it is up to you how you want to do that. :)

    Well I have to go a litlle bit of topic :)

    I just instaled Skyrim and I normaly started the game, and game goes to the point when you step out in front of a Commander and he speaks to you and bla bla... but what he says is inportant: "Who are You?"

    And then you get the chance to create your Characters Atributes...

    Do you know where I heard this at first!? :)

    So my Question is for you Kobas why dont you just make Skyrim?

    Making a world like Skyrims world is would need WAY BIGGER map. And also making it perfectly as same than Skyrims it would took many years of work. Also if you do not make it "so much" similar why not just to make a new "game". So that´s propably why not. Also if there are some pieces of skyrim or something in the games/maps it does not matter... Like in Skyrim you see that but. Like in Gothic the character is almost all the time saying "I see" it always reminds me about that but people says that. You can not always create something new...
