    Now that's what I wanted to hear. :D

    But- of course; Best of luck with Clandestine as well! I'll keep a close watch on it, even if it's not exactly up my alley.

    So the guys behind The Nameless Mod made finally a game instead of crappy self-insert fanfic mod? Awesome.

    Yee-fucking-haw!

    And hopefully this time with mod support. E:C would benefit so much from modding.

    And a properly functioning travel map with clear outlines for terrain and objects + a FoW, please! The UFO beams, garble of 3D soup obstructing everything and the view distance dependence on pan distance sucked all the enjoyment out of navigating the travel map.

    That's good news indeed. Please optimize a bit this time though. All the glowing shit on screen made CPU go crazy. This should not be the case in such a game.
    Otherwise, camera was a bit annoying, yes - but i can live with that. I'd prefer more class skills and options in combat.

    Awesome. I don't suppose you could give us any speculation about the setting, if planned yet? Still South America?

    We'll be releasing the event editor for Conquistador very soon, which should make modding a lot easier.

    We'll definitely be redoing the way the camera works when it comes to that, hopefully making it a lot less frustrating. As far as optimization goes, I hear you; We've definitely learned a lot during, and since its release. Both in terms of optimization, as well as the ins and out of the Unity engine.

    We'll probably do something different than South America. I mean, I know what it's gonna be, but it's much more fun to keep you all guessing until we announce it :P

    Awesome, I always thought the concept could be transferred to different locations well.

    So, rampant speculation begins now. North America? I suppose the real question would be if it's in the same general time period or not.

    I remember you mentioning 19th century Africa at one point.

    And I have to agree with the comment earlier in the thread that the mobile map looks much nicer. 2D exploration would be great.

    I would love to see 16th century to 17th century Africa and watch the butthurt when the undomesticated snowmen discover that african tribes made slaves of other african tribes and sold most of them for profit to the whites and muslim and there was more slaves in Africa and Middle East than in the west.

    Expeditions: Vinland . The very first proven European explorations in the New World by Vikings is probably among the least explored settings ever in every possible media. Plus the Viking theme is naturally attractive.

    Historically the natives won in that one and the colony established by Leif Ericson was either wiped out, abandoned or both, so it would be a very interesting premise to try changing that, specially if it also allowed for the "Capitán" to be a Norse pagan and try to resist the influence of Christianity.

    Haha someone posted the Portuguese invading Brazil and then all the pictures of the mass orgies way earlier in the thread, that was a hilarious idea.

    Well i do hope that you dont end up leaving the game so rushed in certain parts.

    For example the character interaction with each other at first it felt like there was going to be alot of talk among the members of your expedition. However as time passed there was less and less talk among eachother and some characters even feel like they have no events what so ever.

    Maybe less characters and make each one of them better? I dont know.

    Anyway i enjoyed the game anyway.

    I hope they can just bypass ShitComposer altogether, and self-publish it on Steam. And if Valve wants to be fucking stupid dicks (which is sadly a very likely scenario), they should just put it on Greenlight.
    Games have an easier time going through it nowdays, and ExCon already got itself a nice little fanbase to spread the word around.

    Anyway, I just want the game to have more of everything the original had- More enemy types, more combatant customization, more character\follower events and dialogue (seconding what Kaldurenik said), more everything! And yeah, a better world map would be nice. Maybe just make it 2D or something if Unity's a bitch.

    And also ffs make a slideshow-based ending this time around. With all these events\places\people you had effected in-game, it was disappointing to have a relatively "set-in-stone" ending.

    Whatever the setting, I would like some base building ability with lasting tactical value.
