I finally got a chance to start to play Glimmerscape.
I've only scratched the surface of the stories contained within this epic mod.
It is fun seeing familiar bits used in a different way.
I also love all the easter egg touches of Star Trek and Indiana Jones.
Some things I noticed
The ophidian house ( 127 south 9 west) has some rubble/rock piles that can't be cleared with the pick axe. There is one that looks like it covers the stairs, but when I try and clear it, the Avatar goes into auto-mode and tries to walk back to Jones' site to dig the rubble there (even though we already cleared that one).
Deary the pirate has no profile picture or conversation text...although it does look like there is a conversation going on because I get conversation prompts and can click through, but I can't see what he says.
I can't seem to resolve the homeless shelter because when I confronted the courier Ronack , I retrieved a document that just says "generic unused scroll" and Lewis doesn't acknowledge it.
Could this have something to do with the keys switching? I was able to enter the liche's cave by using a key that I already had from wandering around. (I can not take the skimmer yet, nor have I met a jester).
My biggest gripe is that after passing out or dying, I am unable to interact with anything. If I die, I will wake up in the healer's hut/house but I can't click on anything or open my inventory. Also, if I try and save the game at that point, loading that saved game will crash Exult.
Tip: save often, don't die.
Tip: Don't try to take out and open the locked chest on the boat during the opening scene...it breaks everything. I couldn't even shut down Exult normally!
Thanks for a fun story!
