0.4.5 Rogue of Iron YAVP
« on: November 24, 2010, 20:27 »

Bought a robe and skullcap in town for 100. Proceeded to jump right in and clear all the floors, ignoring barrels, opening all sarcophagi, stands, altars, etc. Didn't bother picking up gold-- why bother in Iron?

Got a shortbow[?] of quality [+2dam] on the first floor which served me well until the fourth floor, where durability was running low. Thankfully, found a bow of plenty before my shortbow broke, so I switched over to that. Accidentally spent almost all of floor 3/4 naked-- didn't notice what the low/critical armor icon was until I found leather armor on the 4th floor and noticed I had nothing on. Didn't need much in the way of items, to be honest...

No butcher, sadly. Wanted revenge for my first three characters, two warriors and a mage. Got the Gharbad and Snotspill quests. Also the purify-the-water one and the magic rock.

Battles were all pretty easy, with the exception of a giant swarm of archers. Dealt with that by walking out, firing a shot or two, hiding behind a wall, popping healing magic, repeat.

Stat development was pure dex until my to-hit was ~80%, then I started pumping vit.

Thoughts and comments:

Inventory is kind of annoying, though sort of how it works in Diablo. Would prefer an easier way to compare current equipment to inventory equipment and a way to drop items without leaving the screen.

The amount of blue items with negative effects seems to be unusually high. (Though, thankfully, we don't have the annoying gray drops...)

Can we have the DoomRL-style targeting system, where we can see the path of travel for ranged attacks? Kept accidentally shooting walls/doors.

Just as I remembered from the actual Diablo, the chatter feels like it moves at a glacial pace... maybe cancelling out once could display it in full, then a second press to exit?

And: much as I criticize [something that drives my family mad...], it's tremendously entertaining! Here's hoping the next release comes more quickly than this one! =P

Nice run!

A few of the low level magical item properties aren't currently working in the code at the moment, I believe, which would be the reason for higher percentages of 'bad' magical items.

I'm thinking of an .ini value for the text display, so that it would start as pure Diablo style text scrolling and be changeable. Stilling thinking about the inventory as well.

Keep in mind that we're trying to remain true to our source. In the future (once we've delved down to hell and killed Diablo himself) there is intended to be a developer's version, which might have some of these changes for ease of use, as well as our own quests and maybe even new levels. We shall see.

Suggestions quoted for truth - they are VERY needed.
