1. Time - while the game does seem to keep track of time (e.g., the saves all have "time stamps", indicating days and hours since the beginning of the game), there doesn't seem to be any way to check this in-game - to do so, I need to save, go to the saves and look at the last one I made. (In Pillars of Eternity, for example, hovering the cursor over the pause/unpause "clock" has this functionality). Thus, if some type of in-game clock (perhaps ideally, say, toggleable) can be added, I think it might be convenient.

Heh, where do you think the PoE got the idea from ? BG's, yes, the ingameclock is from BGs, it's in the left lower corner. The pendulum that is the pause button, has a tool tip, aka you need to keep your mouse hovered above it, exactly like in PoE. )


Hmm, funny I never noticed this before... must be because it takes hovering somewhat longer, so I guess I just never had the patience...  :hm:


In this case, what about the saves also indicating the real world date/time when they were made?

I made a little mod that simply removes usability restrictions from potions. Just because it seems to stick out like a sore thumb in my recent playthrough... I get how a magical sword might only submit to use by a paladin, but I don't see how choosing to be a rogue vs. a fighter changes whether you can drink this or that liquid.

Someone suggested it be donated to Tweaks, so I hereby offer it up. All 11 lines of code here:

It doesn't do anything about usability lines in item descriptions... I just haven't cided anything for the old engine in a long time. Sorry...

I have a small suggestion: allow paladins and rangers to use Wands of the Heavens. They're divine spell casters just like clerics or druids, I don't see why they should be restricted.
