I meant that if it gets easier with higher levels, even without new talents, one might try to get higher to be prepared for the end (though admittedly the end is a lot easier than the beast or other random encounters).
Yes, but no matter what I do it will always be like this. All cRPGs work this way.I've remade experience rewards from kills but end level should remain the same as in vanilla game. I've just fixed these nonsensical rewards like 300xp for garkain and 1300xp for basilisk etc.
Priestesses sometimes are able to use magical powers with such prowess it even surpass sorceress. It comes naturally without training and knowledge. Priestesses life span is not precised in books but it's possible they live longer than average humans.
The majority of players finish vanilla Witcher between level 38-41. There is no level cap, there is only cap on ammount of talents. You still increase max hp/lvl after level 40. Anyway FCR is not Flash Mod. You won't end the game above level 40 without serious grindind.
Like in vanilla grinding will make your current fights easier because of higher level
How is it easier if I don't get to choose new talents? And doesn't that rather encourage grinding, if you know you're not gonna get all the talents you'd like, so you try for a higher level to get more powerful despite that? Little confused.
If you are about to fight with the beast in act 1 or go to the cellar with graveirs in act 2, then obviously higher level will make the fight easier but it's not necessary to win.I Don't understand what you mean. You won't hit talent cap until level 40 and you won't hit level 40 until between late act 5 to middle of epilogue. I don't see how this encourage grinding.
Thanks ;DI'd like to add, that it was rather my own thinking, because I found no discussion about the name so far. Except the name of the place (I mean - explanation why it is named so) most I took from books. Luckily I managed to avoid a lot of spoiling here We can also find other places with names taken from our world. Like city Maribor in Slovenia Ah, I don't know if they told somewhere, but guys from Polish board created Witcherland map. Here it is: http://wyslijto.pl/download/hm9rbu197x
No. Specificaly to discourage level grinding I lowered max level on which Geralt gains talent points to 40. Like in vanilla grinding will make your current fights easier because of higher level but it's not necessary at all. Of course monsters are balanced for player who finish all quests. You don't have to be overleveled but you also shouldn't be underleveled.Heliotrop galery in first post fixed. It was linking to closed forum. I saw these pictures but didn't know everybody else can't see them
Quen in books also requires both hands...Implementing 1 more sign instead of replacing existing one requires extreme amount of work, not to mention that some changes might be impossible to do due to copywright restricions. Apart from "standard", complicated scripting it would require redoing few menu's, interfaces, placing new sign, focus stones into the plot and modules (locations).In FCR mod you can attack with active Quen or Heliotrop. This feature comes at the cost of signs duration - both Heliotrop and Quen lasts 3-8 seconds. Besides Heliotrop wasn't introduced to the game to make it one of most useful signs. It will be rarely used but the point was to make the game closer to book lore. Axii sign was very, very different from book version but accurate, close to original version would be useless for game standards. That's why Axii is removed and Heliotrop comes in it's place.
Great movies Michalo_Leoric . I especially like the one with Ureus. IMO TPP camera is much easier to use in hard fights, so I'm impressed with your choice.Crimson.Cosmos, it will be harsh. It a matter of taste if it's too hard or optimal difficulty, that's why I've 4 difficulty options in installer. You can choose 3 new difficulties or none at all and play vanilla difficulty with other game enchancments.Tree Fiddy, you'll be able to uninstall Flash Mod and install FCR anytime you want. Your savegames will still work but most changes from new mod won't work. FCR and Flash mod don't work together and are mutually exclusive.Everyone interested in FCR mod, if you have any questions please post them in thread dedicated to FCR. This thread is not about FCR.
It's good to have hope... sometimes, even in this dangerous place, as Wyzimian streets are at 4am. Sometimes, lonely witcher, tired of everyday hard work, between Fleder and Drowner contract, can come and throw some light on the topic, due to his travels along the world.When I wandered around Skellige Islands, one old troubadour told me about the most dangerous spot of sea, of course if we don't count far west seas, beyond the ocean, where I've been told live monsters that would destroy the world we know, within the time, the moon needs to loose and regain whole his face. This place, avoided by everybody except the fools seeking their deaths, is between Skellige Islands and Peixe de Mar cape. It's called Depths of Sedna. All hurricanes from all around our world have their home in there and no ship that gets there is to be redeemed. There, evil itself opens the ocean and throws the hurricanes to skirmish sailors across the world.That is at least what this poet told me.The truth is, that people die there, evil or not, gods, magic or bunch of whales, something had to destroy Pavetta's and Duny's ship.What? How it comes this boy doesn't know Pavetta and Duny? Anyway, they are Ciri's parents. Duny is also known as Urcheon of Erlenwald.But I'll spare the details about them, what happened to them, all know, or will hear from other tales. Or even read if educated well!Let us return to the Depths of Sedna. Few years ago, a powerful sorceress disappeared in there, about this we also know not much...Her tale let us leave as well, enough to say she is claimed to be dead by many these days.Beware of this place, when You travel by ship. From Skellige it would be nice to travel short and straight way to the continent... but price of Your life is price too big for such luxury. Take the winds to the north or the south, go around this damned place and do not fear of getting lost on seas. The magnificent lighthouse in Peixe de Mar will show You the way. I am sure that is how ferries with loads of fishes from Skellige do. That is why the lighthouse was built after all, isn't it? Without Skellige royal courts wouldn't have so many marvellous sea fishes on their tables now, would they? Troubadour told me one more thing. There are rumours, that in some language, that some mage, elven probably, heard in other world it means as much as fish from sea, or something like that... but I wouldn't believe this too much. There were few that claimed there are other worlds, other dimensions, we could travel to. They say mages tried to build such places. If to believe in these tales, I have no idea. Huh? What You say, boy? I know but I don't want to tell...? Well... maybe. The thing I know for sure is that now it's 5 am in the morning and I hear this bloody miller screaming names on me. I need to kill this Drowner or he will never shut up. HOLD ON, I'M GOING! I AM RIGHT AWAY, CALM DOWN. Job must be done, innit? Farewell my friends, I hope to tell You another story another day!

F.A.Q. translation by Piotr 'Szczepek' Szczepankiewicz, Iwona 'Raine' Pułanecka, Karolina 'Nemi' Luba
Question: What are the main differences between Flash Mod and FCR? I don't know which one I should choose.
Answer: Flash Mod significantly increaces the difficulty, but leaves the original game mechanics, whereas FCR is an overhaul of the talent and fighting system, which, apart from increasing the difficulty, also maximises the realism, while maintaining the gameplay at the highest standard at the same time. FCR is a set of completely new, worked out rules for the Witcher.
Q: Which of the following mods; Flash Mod and FCR is harder on the INSANE difficulty level?
A: FCR on INSANE is harder than Flash Mod. The player, who will read what the new skill tree offers, who will plan the development of his character, who will keep up with the bestiary, the noted strong and weak points of monsters, will be more satisfied with FCR than with Flash Mod.
The problem is that most of the players simply install FCR, start playing on INSANE and throw themselves impetuosly into a fight without
Because when they arrived Geralt was already dying. Even a sorceress specialised in healing couldn't heal him. Magic can heal but can't undo death. And yet again there is no inconsistency. During Thanedd Coup the oldest living mage - Hen Gedymdeith died from simple heart attack. No magic could save him because it was too late.
There is no inconsistency. Geralt's endurance came from the fact that he was extremely hard to hit. Unfortunately even a master swordsman can't hit and dodge when he has 100 people around him. That was the case in Rivian pogrom, Geralt was overwhelemed. He had not enough space, he tangled up in the crowd and couldn't avoid the pitchfork. No matter, bite or weapon he couldn't heal by himself. In books witcher regeneration isn't such a godly feat as in game. His blood clotted much faster but he can't miraculously regenerate open wounds and pierced organs.heavy spoiler
This wound was as serious for Geralt as for any normal human who didn't recieve proper treatment. In his last moment Geralt had every friend and beloved person beside him. Yennefer was so broke down that she attempted to heal him even though everybody knew it was too late. Healing spells are extremely exhausting and so in the long process of futile healing, she died trying to save him. Seeing this, Ciri with the help of her unicorn reclaimed her magic powers (she rejected her magic some time ago) and set sail with Yennefer and Geralt. Nobody knows where they headed but Geralt and Yennefer regained conciousness or maybe life somewhere, probably on the elven homeworld in other dimension.
It's Flash mod. FCR didn't make it to because it was finished late and there wasn't enough time for testing. Keep in mind that you can finish most community adventures in 1 hour but to finish the game with a mod you need full 40-90hour playthrough. Anyway, FCR will be available to download same day as patch 1.5.
For 200 bucks I would definitely buy something like this: http://www.motherboards.org/reviews/hardware/1836_1.htmlOf course choosing the company is a matter of taste. Keep in mind that your PSU is the absolute minimum required for this setup. All cards from GF 2xx line requires 500W PSU or better, ATI cards are even more power hungry. 480W PSU should handle it flawlessly but I don't recall Orion brand. It should be high quality.
