    Okiiy then,
    The thrust of this post is to say that I am making a mod for Arcanum which takes place approximately 1000 years after the original. The player is teleported forward in time to do some sort of world salvation/destruction thing but has no idea of what has happened in the intervening centuries or why exactly they have been sent there. An official Arcanum 2 will (hopefully) be out before I am likely to finish, but I'm at least going to do the stuff around Shrouded Hills and Tarant.

    Ambitious? Hell yeah, but I'm going to do it anyway. What I wanted to know is what sort of things should have happened since Arcanum and what sort of world the place is now. I'm making what actually happened after Arcanum unkown (so no-one's ending is obsolete), due to a catastrophic meteor impact. Any ideas, suggestions, or comments would be useful. Also if anyone would like to work on such a project, I would appriciate any help.

    Are you going to implement any new tech?

    before you start, take in concideration that 90% of all arcanum mods are droped before halfway done.

    A: I don't know about making new schematics, skills, etc, but there will be some custom devices and weapons. Think re-discovered Vendigrothian artifacts. :)

    B: Yes-and I probably won't finish this one. But I promise to release a version with at least Shrouded Hills, Tarant, and a few other places if I can get the stupid world map to work. :eek:uch:

    C: I figured out how to make a quest. Am I special yet? :teeth:
