    Looks like the game is in a pre-beta version... i thought its was already full release... anyways, great game you made!!!!

    I'll point i few things that i think

    Pro
    Characters and skills
    terrain
    items
    food system
    stats (same as gaias... and i love this system)

    Contra and bugs

    After you finish a quest the npc remains with the notification on their heads

    Buying two water elemental... MAN THE GAME GOT BROKEN AFTER I TRYIED TO BUY A SECOND WATER ELEMENTAL!!!!! FIX THIS!!!! I couldnt use the water elemental anymore and i kept dying if i dropped the item and tryed to pick it up again...

    Monster AI... the sorcerer have a huge casting range for his skills and mobs keep taking spells and ignoring me... thats sad...

    Foods... i should stack more than 1 apple in a slot but it dont work like that (it should be able to stack lots and lots of food in one slot)

    Loots system... srsly, it sux... let the creeps just drop it on the floor and erase any non picked item after 60 seconds or something.


    Despite all the bugs and things i didnt liked, i'll give 9/10... this game is great and have a lot of potential... it would be even better if it was multiplayer!!!

    Sorry, english isnt my best language

    Thank you all for testing this, I'm fixing things really fast, for example this:
    Was handed with Wanderer ability, it sucks because it will force creep to act like neutral passive unit, I created script today that replaced this silly AI, creeps (monsters will now act more realistic).

    About elementals, dunno why but you once when you buy pet can't move item to other slots it will remove abilities from it :sad:
    I will create new system soon, now when I unlocked camera I don't need to care about controlling few units at same time so this should be little easier.

    Once again, thanks, new update 0.1.7.9 (yes 4 versions ahead right now), will be uploaded on 1st, February.

    The bug that i mentioned about dying after buying 2 water elemental rune, isnt happenning anymore... weird. But like you said, if you move the item from slot it stop working and then u have to drop it and pick it up to work again

    Thief backstab make creeps run from you...

    Archer spirit owl aoe is pretty lame... a 5 line damage... it with be better if it was a real cone.

    Archer net... the same as ALLLLL other spells of all chars of the game, you use it and the creeps run away like is no hero to fight...

    Dropping items from backpack is pretty lame... you must drop it extremely close of you and yet it keeps going back to you if you dont find the perfect spot to drop...

    Switch priorits in the stores. Switch from hero to backpack... that option is basic in any map and i found myself with backpack as main buyer...

    Hmm... I would do it like the bags would not be heroes. Maybe builders, every one knows how to hotkey unit(s). Or if not you can just write a tip...

    That would block posibilty to buy straight into backpack if your heros inventory is not full cause the shop will automaticly select hero... Atleast I think so. Also the hero preview screen will block the screen abit... Also I would too increase the item dropping range...

    I like the bags as heroes, it provides a good interface.

    I liked the intro cinematic and the character selection.

    But the game looks like a Gaias Retaliation ripoff. The game play is generic and booring, and the filter thing is very annoying.

    When I first saw the size of the map, I was like "14.5 mB !?!?!" Then I played the map and saw just how much had been done with those 14 mB.

    Good job with the cameras and the character selection system (I know it must have been a pain to make that, and it seems flawless). I also really enjoyed that Oblivion theme at the start. It brought me back, heh.

    Just a suggestion: About the birthsigns and specializations, I'd suggest you give the player some explanation about them before the player selects his one (ok, it's possible to have some idea of the specializations by just reading their names, but not the birthsigns).

    Other than that, keep up that S-kicking work, sir.

    You can send your suggestion offically to Hosted Project > Shadows of the Past > Forum... But I think -Kobas- will also read suggestions here. You can also support the project in there. :)

    I agree with SHURA_BR, I think you should give the player some explanation about birthsigns.

    well I start with the good points:
    nice terrain
    good character selection

    mediocre points:
    boring interface
    stat system lacks diversity, i mean wow you can have also life and mana...

    bad points:
    food system: too expensive, too high dereg, you should be able to buy stacks (eg 10 apples instead of 1), why buy food, you can just die...
    skill system: well you have 2 skills, thats the system so far... no possibility to increase leve and no formulas
    stat system: no influence from attribute stats to indirect stats (crit/bash)
    text: missing texts on birthsigns, professions, characters, items
    profession system: well you can choose it and then?
    camera: the 3rd person camera isn't something good here, I have seen much better ones
    aggro: yeah all mobs run away at first when you hit them with an ability
    items: item choice is really limited, are there ven weapons except for starting weapons?
    enemies: the difference is a bit hard, you can easily kill the boars, but you get fucked by wolves and bandits, also just hit&die enemies, no abilities
    experience: quests give riddiculous low exp compared to enemies, bandits give none
    armor system: why bother to get a armor with 3-5% damage reduction at best? why doesn't anyone try to make an armor system thats even efficient on low levels...
    story: won't comment on quests etc. because it's not finished yet
    dieing: no penalty system, you just have to wait lvl*1 seconds... wow

    I won't vote know because it's still in the early stages (I hope), but for now it would be 2.5/5 at best, only the terrain increases the rating...
    A gaias retlalitation rip-off? stop kidding me, it only has partially similar terrain and classes.

    edit:
    just realized that this is a map from Kobas... sadly I' used to better things from him... Still no reason to make things better than they are :(

    Thanks for comment.
    Well everything you noticed was already many times noticed, but I will try to improve some elements really fast.
    New version bring new terrain and I will finally make some difference compared to gaias (-.-).

    Improved a little.
    Works in new version.
    Because I think that there is no need for such things, I will soon create new level up system and explain stats and shits nicely when time come.
    I will see can I add this right now.
    It's disabled.
    You don't like it and I respect that.
    Fixed, improved, new AI shaped.
    Well kill some creeps. There are more than 200 items so far.
    Bandits are level 2 basic creeps, there is msg on the screen show when you enter that area.
    Fixed and improved.
    Will see what can I do about it.
    I started to present story in new version.
    Time is set to 3 seconds. You can die unlimited number of times because I don't want to defeat you if you die. But each time when you die your score will be reduced. This system isn't finished but I made main systems.
    When time come it will be explained nicely.

    I don't have cool models for armors/helmets and such objects so I avoid item dropping on the ground, but it can be solved by removing few lines of text easily.

    I will see what can I do about it.

    bandits: then perhabs set lvl of bandits higher? crabs are easier to kill than bandits so far
    dieing: well you could also loose some gold/exp depending on difficulty
    items: sry I mostly got shop items about 8/10 drops perhabs bad luck...
    ah and I beleive you can give your items to the loot-whatever-glowing-thing
    haha you don't have to be so formal, just ignore such things^^ perhabs it would be better to have a camera that is locked on character view (facing direction when traveling) but you could still spin around when standing. just a suggestion though.

    (terrain thing: that gaia's thing referred to one of the posts above, I don't think it's too similar, I understand that there are some terrain models that are just the best currently, so they are used, nothing bad about it)


    perhabs when choosing character let a text pop up, with what's disabled etc. for this version

    good luck for this project

    I've seen several maps wich were marked as "Gaias ripoffs". It is beacuse HQ model pack and also, if you play human normal classes are Thief, Warrior (Squire), Ranger and such. It would be strange if human were shaman or alchemist etc. Also Gaias is prolly most famous game using HQ model pack so everyone thinks it's ripoff but it is not really at all.
