If this has been on any other forum, then pardon me.I haven't been on the Forums for ages.

Anyway...

I was just wandering, will you be able to "stage" battles in BoA?
So that you decide in advance who will do how much damage and who will use which spells?
It would be really cool, cause then I could make a HUGE Nephil vs. Slith war, where I decide who wins. (Nephilim^_^)

-I've had worse!
-You liar!
-C'mon, you pansy!
(Fighting continues.)
-Allright. We'll call it a draw then.
-Oh I see. Running away are we? You yellow bastard! Come back here and take whats coming for you! I'll bite your legs off!

You mean like an animation. Well, you could do it a bit like it currently can be done in BoE (with frame animation and the like). I suspect, however, that it might be possible to script the monsters in BoA when it comes out, although I don't know whether there might be limit to the number of monster scripts in a town or not, meaning that *huge* battles might not be possible.

Yes, these battles will be possible. However, I'm pretty sure that there will still be item/town limits.

Unless he changed his mind without telling us, I believe he said a town limit of 200 was where he put his foot down. Not sure about items, but I hope it's not low... 'cuz I'm gunna be using a lot of 'em.

Well, you can just edit out the useless items that will be included. I was talking about items per town limit.

It really sucks. Only one important item left to be placed, and.. "You can't have more than blah blah blah.." Then you'll just have to delete some stick lying on the ground.. :)
