What I don't get about Arcanum's whole magic doesn't mix with technology thing is that technology includes more than just new steam engines, gears and other machines, it also includes things like rope, bows and arrows, spears, swords, clothing and yes the garments of spell casters and their arcane paraphernalia are all technology even if they predate the industrial technology, it doesn't make much sense and seems like an arbitrary phenomenon.

@Jay-Z Denton Still doesn't make sense but whatever. *I still like the setting and more so I like the Idea of such a setting,* an otherwise typical generic western fantasy world that's going through its own industrial revolution, an underused concept or atleast one that doesn't seem to have as much mainstream appeal as I wish it would. Actually I'd be more interested in a sort of what's called; a *"spiritual successor"* of the old Arcanum RPG! Instead of magic and technology being arbitrarily at odds with each other I'd like to see *how magic which is typically exclusive and quite frankly an elitist thing in most fictional generic fantasy universes* be the subject of becoming more available to people that aren't traditionally designated as "casters". *By using advanced technology (at the time period used for inspiration) to automate the process of spell crafting or otherwise make the old archaic rituals more 'efficient'.* Basically the commercialization and more interestingly the democratization of magic to the masses, *"magic socialism"* basically. Oh and for laughs I'd want the most prominent proponent and the one that formalized the (in-world) modern idea of socialized magic to be the orc version of Karl Marx or Friedrich Engles! XD

Assume simple devices are barely affected and magic rarely causes trouble, while more complex machines (things that need to move quick, have complicated component interactions) have cumulatively larger effects so magic is more noticeable. Yes it's quite arbitrary.

I really love this game and feel it's a shame that it hasn't gotten too much exposure. I'm not usually a steampunk person, but this game makes me forget about fallout 2 which is a challenge. Especially since fallout 2 is one of my all time favorite cRPG. I wish someone would scoop this game up and re-master it if nothing else but to get it the mordernization updates it sorely needs to run on Windows without messing around with a ton of settings & configs to do so.

Ah yes, the hugely unbalanced game with awesome story and lore. Literally unplayable with some builds since everyone will beat the shit out of you. Always thought myself a story player but couldn't keep up with this game's bullshit.
Silent33091 Prieš 12 dienų
@thenomad These aren't even really exploits (those are the stuff like permanent spells, gold dupe, unrestricted map travel) Also don't forget to pick up the dog early in ashbury, he's the best companion and easy to get. Sorry for rambling on i'm just way to passionate about this game, good luck.
thenomad Prieš 12 dienų
@Silent33091 Wow thanks for the tips, didn't know of the temporary boost exploit. Perhaps I will try an easier build then because I really liked exploring its world.
Silent33091 Prieš 12 dienų
@thenomad Most guns are under powered without the community patch thus gun smithy is the worst thech school (still usable tough) but explosives are broken if you have any throwing skills, stun grenade are a cheap way to permastun and they synergize well with "Fire Obstruction" but all other grenades are broken too. If you need resources you just go to the vendor buy the stuff, scroll the screen away so so that the vendor isn't visible skip a day with hotkeys and you can buy again. (there's a restock mod if you don't want to bother with this) You can get intelligence potions which boost intelligence temporarily learn the gun+explosive tech while the potion is active (since tech characters don't need permanent intelligence), this would save you tons of points. There are also lots of ways to get temporary/permanent charisma to get lots of followers without spending any points in it. There's like 12 other tips i could give you, but what i would recommend you is to play a mage or a melee fighter for your first play through those are the easiest and they help you get used to the game.
thenomad Prieš 12 dienų
@Silent33091 I'm sure that is also the case, but I didn't try to learn its exploits. It's been a while I was going on a scientist engineer type, but can't remember the details. I was using pistols+bombs as weapons but it took a lot of resources. I just wished combat was easier for my build.
Silent33091 Prieš 12 dienų
More like its unbalanced the other way around, there are so many exploits that if you don't limit yourself the game barely poses a challenge. What kind of build did you have trouble with? you can beat the game easily even without spending a single skill point.
