Jeff Vogel doesn't view the boards often, but most of his attention is directed towards the tech support and Avernum 5 forums as of currently.

Jeff does read these once in a while on the off chance that something useful is posted, but don't count on it.

well, maybe some "heavy" forum members could inform him about the most popular or interesting requests.

I think the administrators take care of that.

I would like to see at the end of the game that all sides and people like greta, alwan and ghaldring( shapers, rebels/drakons, and trakovites) meet in one level to decide and reason the war. then depending on what you say and what side your on, a huge battle of hundreds of shapers and drakons and rebels all clash and a huge battle will decide the end. Instead of the tiny battles in certain levels. Then it will truly test your strength.

The battle concept sounds interesting (I think there is a large battle in an Avernum game), but the "All sides decide to stop fighting for several months while a group of representatives from every single cult gather to have a peace talk that ends in a large battle between the shapers and rebels (no one else)" Is unlikely to happened. Also I think a large battle would be hard to survive and portray in turn based battles, not to mention it would just be too much thinking for some older computers.

i don't believe that the game consumes so much power as to prevent computers running it smoothly, and a huge battle would be fun, though it may last for hours and your character may not have a very important part in such a battle.

This won't in G5 Jeff said we get to decided how it ends.

It may seem like that, but for every single participant in the battle the computer needs to calculate which enemy is weakest or attacked last, and what to do, and if you stick in fifty fighters for each side, that is a lot of decision making. Then it also needs to do all the graphics for the creatures moving both before and during the battle. While it wouldn't bog down newer computers, older computers may be pushed towards their limits.

The only thing I really SERIOUSLY want in this game is 1 (okay maybe 2) thing(s).

First have the same general features as the previous games (dont screw up a good system).

And make sure that us poor Windows Vista players can actually play it. Don't leave me all alone in this pit of despair! :D

Vista users can play geneforge. The only games we can't play are the old nethergate and exile games.

Well then, Vista user can can play the old nethergate and exile games.

How though, it says "pre-vista" in the Windows box?

EDIT: typo

considering that geneforge 5 will be the last geneforge game, it would be cool to have a secret unlockable character..., lets say a shaper with no penalty to melee or magic..., and this character could be playable once the game is finished with the regular characters.

Just install it and play. It only says pre-vista because the games are not supported for vista.

What about some magic creations that focus on disabling or healing effects(imaging a vlish that only dazes, without doing any damage!!!)

Some Vista info here:

Windows Vista 32 and 64 capability with Spiderweb Products
http://www.ironycentral.com/cgi-bin/ubb/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=000958

As for Geneforge 5:

1. I'd like to see a character editor in it as I understand is in Avernum 5. (Which I'm going slightly bonkers waiting for a Windows version. Exact ETA anyone?)

2. I'd like to see the ability to fly or float for the player character. This shouldn't be out of the general feel of the series as both magic and genetic engineering could easily accommodate such a feature.

The advantage? Reduced levels of damage when flying over hot things. Fly over rivers, you could cross without a bridge and hover in the middle of it and pick off foes that can't fly or swim. This would limit getting "swarmed" to other flying, floating critters. Also, it would be balanced by your other creations. Land bound ones couldn't follow you directly.

Make it an equippable item like a ring or belt. Or even an item that you could put in 1 of the 4 quick equip buttons. Like a wand or baton that doubles as a weapon.

Maybe make it so you could choose your PC as one with flight ability.

Or just make it a reward for a quest or an item you could buy from an NPC.

it would need some tinkering but this thing would look like a perfect ultimate battle creation(or magic if some sort of magic effects would be added in the game), and it would be cool to have a creation like this in the game.

I think Jeff should have some talking inanimate object that makes a reference to the Avernum series. Just because I was loser enough to carry a talking skull around.

Maybe a whole set of Xian like items could do as well.
