Default Wizardry 8… modding.

April 13th, 2015, 22:47
DTE!!

I was thinking of installing Wiz8 again and got to wondering about what mods are available and whether they are in any somewhat polished state.

For example, how is Wizardry 8 reforged? Or any of the other mods on this page, for example. Has anyone tried playing through these in their entirety?

I generally don't mess with mods in any of my games, to be honest. I religiously use Wizfast for Wiz8 and that's nearly my entire list. I did get the chance to play Dodd the Slayer's Wiz8 mod both during development and after he was "done" and I found it very enjoyable. It ramps up the difficulty significantly and adds lots of interesting items to the game. There's a thread here on the Watch for Dodd's mod and I've seen him swing by every once in a while so you could probably get help if you got stuck for some reason (I never had a single problem with the final version, but "insurance" is nice).

Off your linked list, I sorta remember hearing good things about Flamestryke's mod as well as Deathstalker's. The others don't ring a bell, but in this case I'm not actually the right guy to ask.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

Heh, I googled Dodd's pack and I ran into this old thread http://www.rpgwatch.com/forums/showthread.php?t=7996

Thanks, dte.

It's tough, so be prepared. Unless he rebalanced it again when I wasn't looking, you'll need some seriously good strategy to get thru Arnika Road. I wouldn't recommend attempting it with a gimp party. As long as you're not too proud to get your butt handed to you a few times, you'll enjoy what he's done.
