Who here is going to actually create a BOA scenario or already has plans for one cause it'll be rubbish if practically no one creates any especially seeing as most BOE scenario creators are very loyal to Exile so probably won't convert or creat new ones for Avernum?

Well, seeing as I didn't actually create any scenario yet, I haven't got any experience, but I'll probably convert the scenarios I've planned into BoA once it comes out...

... assuming I'll finish it at all before BoA is released, otherwise I'd probably make only the BoA version.
I know that it's harder to make because of the graphics, but the system really wears me down, because I always misplace the notes I've made, and currently I've got about 10 versions of the scenario I'm making. The one with all monsters designed contains none of the outdoor tiles, the one with the towns hasn't got the items, and the one that has most progress has the wrong number of outdoor sections... :rolleyes:
I hope the interface will become easier in BoA.

There will be many, many scenario designers for BoA. This is not something to worry about.

I would like to make a scenario, although I've never made one, so who knows how it will turn out. I never made one in BOE because I didn't like the interface and was annoyed by having to work in the confines of a very small window. Hopefully BoA will have a better interface.

Same with me. I especially hate the node sequence jungle though. Basically, you get 50 lines of programming code for each town, and when you make a new one it just gets put in wherever there's a free space. Change a few chains a few times, delete a few nodes, add others belonging to other chains and you're lost in the jumble of cross-references and node chains. :rolleyes:

I hope the script will be easy to handle. If not, it'll at least be more editable than the nodes.

No matter what im making one as well. Of course the quality of said scenario will probaly be either mind bogglingly(bogglingly...that IS a word right?) stupid, or something so massively amazing and awe inspiring our children shall sing of it for eons to come.

Im afraid thats how nearly all things i make turn out. Very good, or very bad. Im very black and white.

Strange. You should see my grades in school. If it's not an A, it's usually a D or an F. It usually fluctuates between those.

For what it's worth, I'm very anxious to start on my scenario as soon as BoA is released. I'm sure that there will be many great contributions!

I haven't made any or played any from BoE, so I'm going to wait a bit before I start designing. I need to see what people do in their's (intro, dialogue boxes, etc).

Same here,

I'm thinking of a scenario I could make but I would need to use the Nova Lexion a lot.

It's probably not a good idea to be throwing around names like that. Well that is if you want to keep the name to yourself...

Yeah, it's probably a good idea to keep the name for yourself - if you want to keep the name for yourself. [/sarcasm] Sorry, couldn't resist that.

:P

Also, if you tell the name of your scenario, you will usually have started developing it, or at least finishing the outline of your plot. So you'll be ahead of anyone copying (probably, unless the one copying is a very fast designer). And when the scenario is out, nobody would name theira after one that is already there... ;)
