    Divinity - Original Sin will support Linux.
    I'm really looking forward to this game, I love RPG games. It has been awhile since a game came with a good toolset. I still build in NWN toolset, I like making my own mods/adventures.

    Man Original Sin looks amazing!
    Really looks like the Titan Quest engine... just beautiful!
    And cooperative game-play too!
    I'll be watching this one because i love RPG's too.
    Is it still turn-based?

    No way, I didn't know you were a modder!
    I did some game development a few years ago and it never really went anywhere. But I had a lot of fun learning the game development processes.
    I hope to visit again one day.
    My favorite part of development is creating 3D assets. I just didn't have the right tools. I started using Sketchup, then moved to Blender. What I really needed was 3DMax. Ironically I now have access to a copy of 3DMax 9 from work.
    But I'm too busy testing games and creating Guides to get back into it.

    Link me to a few of your mods. I would love to see your work.

    wow, I can see you have spent a lot of time working with the toolset.
    Those are some large cities you built.
    Reminds me of Morrowind a bit.
    I noticed your character has no head...

    That was one of my wifes characters, lol. She had a headpack installed and when I updated to a newer version of CEP it messed it up. I have a character editor in game where she can go and pick a new head, she just hasn't gotten around to it yet.

    Thats pretty funny!
    Very nice work by the way. You can really see how dated the graphics are compared to NWN2 and even Neverwinter.
    Do they have texture packs for NWN?

    When I played Morrowind the first time I installed a bunch of mods that included textures, model fixes and more.
    Came out to at least a Gig of data, but the game was awesome!

    There are some, but I don't use them. Graphics are dated but I still love the game. The toolset and customization are still unmatched to this day in RPG games that let you host multiplayer.

    Still congratulations on your success. Most gamers don't truly appreciate or even know how much work you have put into modding.
    specially hosting your own server... that takes a lot of work too.

    i have done some LAN hosting with game servers, but have not created my own public host and allowed people to join it.
    Unfortunately a lot of games these days have their own public servers and don't make the software available for download anymore.
    Like Battlefield 3. I can't run my own dedicated server anymore and I still host games for BF2 even today.
    Kinda lame, but I guess that is how they control their game.

    I still run Half-Life 2 Deathmatch, Counter-Strike: Source, The Ship, Unreal Tournament 3, Quake Wars, Doom 3 and Battlefield 2 on my Linux server. Its all local and offline.
