UB Split
« on: April 21, 2004, 03:56:22 PM »
There is something that I've been thinking about a bit lately that I thought I might get some feedback on from you guys...

Currently, Unfinished Business has about 19 individual components.  That number is only going to increase as new quests are added.  I was thinking of taking some of the smaller components (Portrait Restorations, Name Corrections, BAM corrections, etc.) and turning them into a separate mod, probably something called the "UB TweakPack," since tweak packs are the happenin' thing nowadays.  ;)

So, do you guys think that splitting UB into two separate mods is beneficial or detrimental?

Alternately, you could put all of those elements in a single "Cosmetic Enhancements" component...

I don't think number of components is really a problem with a mod, so much as filesize. But until UB is shipping with bucketloads of TIS files, this isn't really a problem. On the other hand, a "cosmetic fixes" component is probably a fair idea.

Well, originally these, along with a few other components, were all dumped into one called "Misc Tweaks."  I broke it down since some people may want names to be restored, but not portraits. 

Ah, well... I guess I won't worry about it too much.

Yeh, but the Misc Tweaks needed to be broken down, since Artemis Entreri in Bodhi's lair really did suck. On the other hand, I think the number of people wanting names restored but not portraits is going to be somewhat low.

I think number of components can get to be a slight problem in that it might tend to encourage people to say "Oh, fuck it, Y to everything, let's go already" but yeah, I don't think it's too much the end of the world to have additional components... and if it bugs you, lump all the cosmetic ones together. Boom. :)

Well, tapping Y a lot is much easier than the frustration of having gay components like Artemis Entreri restored when you don't want 'em.  So yeah, just one pirate's opinion.
