Favorite Attribute Systems?

So... I've been thinking about the attribute system for Fallout 4 (SPECIAL) and for Elder Scrolls games quite a bit for the past few games and am curious if you like any of them? Or possibly any other attribute systems from other games even... As well as what you may want to see!


 


For myself, I honestly never really liked most attribute systems as, most of the time, developers gets them WRONG. The best attribute system I've seen so far is from Fallout 3 and New Vegas (and they still have some simple, and easy to fix, issues with them). The problem with almost every attribute system is that the developers usually think it's a good idea to have the player increase them every time they level up, and to me... This is a bad choice and a stupid idea. I love how in Fallout 3 and New Vegas, attributes are between 1 through 10 and you choose how you want them to be for your character and they don't naturally increase as you level up (you can with a perk but I never touch said perk. Should get a mod to remove that perk honestly). In my opinion, attributes should very rarely change and should affect how your character process through the game (from leveling skills to increasing basic stats). Attributes shouldn't be the primary base of your character! Skills and basic stats should be the primary base of a character, and should be the ones that can increase over time and be effected by outside means (such as spells or curses).


 


When should an attribute change? Well for example... If we have this system in Skyrim, your strength (and endurance) may increase by 2 or 3 while in werewolf form and by 1 in human form. So if you had 6 strength before, then you will have 7 in human and up to 9 in werewolf. However, your intelligence and willpower will be decreased in human form by 1 - 2 (depending on how strong you are as werewolf). Same thing with vampires but more opposite stats. You could also gain or lose an attribute point based on quests you do, perks, abilities, etc, though still very rarely.


 


Now, due to this being Bethesda's forums. I'll share my own system I've came up with for an Elder Scrolls game. (My Fallout idea is still being worked on, due to Fallout having some differences)...


 



Spoiler
Obviously, I love the 1-10 idea and will be applying it here. When ya create your character, you will have a similar attribute creation that you had in Fallout 3 and New Vegas. The difference, though, is NO bonus points. All of your attributes will be set on 5 by default and you have to move a point from to another if you want to increase. This way, you can create balanced characters who suits your tastes rather than doing something like 8 intelligence, 6 str, 6 endurance, and rest are 5s. Your attributes will rarely change after character development, as I said before. So be careful with what you pick and make sure you are happy with your choice.


 


Secondly, your characters will all start with the same basic stats -BUT- adding, or subtracting, numbers depending on your choice of attributes. However, Health, Magicka, and Stamina will always be 100 at the start for every character. More about basic stats later...


 


There are 8 attributes in my system. 3 Major, 4 Minor, and then Luck itself. The major ones are Strength, Endurance, and Intelligence. The minor ones are Willpower, Agility, Perception, and Personality. Then you have Luck!


 


Now as for the attributes themselves and how they affect your character?


Strength - Simply put, Strength affects your carry weight, base melee damage, stamina increase per level, and ability to wield weapons.

~ Your base carry weight is 100 + 20xSTR. Meaning, you will always have at least 120 carry weight and at max, 300.


~ Your base melee damage is at 100% with 5 Strength. 200% with 10 Strength. 50% with 1 Strength. Note your base melee damage is your damage with your fist (even with 10 strength, this isn't as deadly as you may think). HOWEVER, hand-to-hand base weaponry is completely based on your base melee damage, being multiplied by it. So having higher strength can make werewolf and hand-to-hand warriors much more deadlier. Otherwise, the base damage is added on to your weapon's damage.


~ Your stamina increases every time automatically by your Strength. Meaning, with 6 strength... Your stamina increases by 6 every time you level-up. (Check level-up note below for more).

~ Weapons have Strength requirement. If you aren't strong enough, you will be less effective with that weapon.


Endurance - Affects your health increase per level, base damage resistance, poison resistance, and regeneration.


~ Your health increases every level-up by your Endurance. 4 Endurance means 4 health every level-up.

~ You have a small base damage resistance which is 100% at 5 Endurance. 200% at 10 and 50% at 1. This is basically a small little armor rating your will always have, however, certain spells will multiply your base resistance (such as Iron Skin spells) and other other aspects, like your werewolf hide, is multiplied by your base damage resistance. Note: This ONLY effects physical resistances.

~ You will have a small poison resistance based on your Endurance. 5% at 1 Endurance. 10% at 5 and 20% at 10. Mind you though, poison resistance is rare to find in my books, so having that extra resistance could be helpful.

~ Your regeneration rate for stamina and magicka (as well as health when out-of-combat) is based on your Endurance. 100% at 5. 200% at 10. 50% at 1.


 


Intelligence - Affects your magicka increase per level, learning time, benefits from books, and spellbook size.


~ Your Magicka increases every level-up by your Intelligence. 8 Intelligence means 8 magicka every level-up.


~ How fast, or slow, you learn your skills is based on your intelligence. From 50% to 200% of the normal speed.


~ Certain books can benefit you by training your skills. Intelligence effects how much experience for a skill you get from a skillbook. 50% at level 1 intelligence (meaning you gain 50% of the bar to the next level of that skill). 100% at 5, which means you get a complete level up. And then 200% at 10, which means you level up twice in that skill. This also effects spellbooks. At 1 intelligence, new spells you learn will be 50% as good as the book says. 5 means you get that spell exactly and 10 intelligence means your new spell will be twice as effective as said in the book.


~ Your personal "spellbook" can only fit so much magic inside of it. Intelligence effects how many spells (discounting powers and abilities, mind you) can fit in it. From 10 to 100. Also, note that you should be able to delete/remove unwanted spells just fine as well to make room.


 


Willpower - Affects your base magic resistance and spellpower.


~ Your base magic resistance is from 5%(1) up to 25%(10).


~ Your spellpower is your strength in magic. It'll affect how good you are at casting spells and lowers, or raises, the requirements for spells as well as the magicka requirement for spells. Meaning with 1 Willpower, you will have trouble casting the basic Novice spells while they consume your magicka like crazy yet with 10 willpower, you will be able to cast a large variety of spells, despite your skills, while not using as much magicka. Please note though that with 10 willpower, it only brings the requirement down by 25 (Meaning, you can cast Master at Expert) BUT with 1 Willpower, it'll increase all but Notice spells by 25 so you will never be able to cast Master spells. The magicka requirement is from 200%(1) to 50%(10).


 


Agility - Affects your base chances of being knocked down and staying quiet.


~ The base chance of you being knocked down or staggered by certain attacks is from 90%(1) to 10%(10).


~ The noise you make while sneaking is based how well you move from 200%(1) to 50%(10) of the noise you make.


 


Perception - Affects your ability to aim with range weapons and ability to see the world around you


~ Your base aiming accuracy is based on your perception from 200%(1) to 50%(10). Aiming accuracy is basically how close the arrow hits compared to the cross-air. So better your perception, the more precise you are, which makes sense.


~ You can spot traps and enemies much better based on your perception. The chance of spotting them as well as your spotting distance increases, or decreases, on your perception.


 


Personality - Affects your ability to bargain and relationship increase/decrease rates.


~ You can bargain prices base on your personality from 150%(1) to 50%(10) of the base SHOP PRICE. This is backwards when selling. You may also have increased success rate of talking enemies into a bargain, rather than having fights to the death all the time.


~ Your relationship increase/decrease rates changes based around your personality. Increase rate is 50%(1) to 150%(10) while decrease rate is backwards.


 


Luck - How lucky or unlucky you are.


~ Luck does what it always will do.


 


Note on leveling up:


In my book, when you level up. You can add 10 extra points to Health, Stamina, or Magicka (like in Skyrim). This means, not only does this three base stats increase naturally but you can add an extra 10 to any of them every level. You also, like in Skyrim, will gain a perk point to be use. However, unlike in Skyrim, you will also have 8 Attribute trees. These are basically extra perks which you can get based around how high your attributes are (like in Fallout how certain perks requires certain attributes). All of these perks are attribute-based only and will not require certain skills. Mind you though, perk points are used for both attributes and skills so you need to make a choice of what type of perk you want every level-up.


 


Any questions about my own idea?



 


Anyways, now I'm done with my own thoughts. What about you guys? Are there any systems out there you like and enjoy? You have your own ideas?

Minecraft is a creative sandbox game centered around exploration and survival; exploring and gathering resources allows you to protect yourself against a variety of monsters that hunt you down during the night. The creative sandbox elements of the game fuel your want to survive and gather, which in turn allows you to build many wonderful creations. Basic fluid physics also provide interesting means of creating basic machines.

The multiplayer is very similar to single-player, just with more people and chat.

Hey guys,


 


I know this is an unorthodox thing to post about, but I've been on the forums for a few years now, and I've been wondering this for quite a while. Who exactly are the people who decide to go anonymous on the forums? I've always imagined that at least some of them are Bethesda employees, reading our feedback and taking our ideas into consideration. I highly doubt that, but a guy can dream, right? I especially see more anonymous users whenever the thread is about some sort of theory, feedback, or idea about the game. 


 


So, to any potential anonymous people reading this who are willing to break their anonymity, what's up? What's your reason for being anonymous on the forums? 


 


To everyone else, do you think Bethesda actually has staff member reading our speculations and feedback about Fallout 4 as anonymous users? Or am I just insane?

Most video games have us playing some kind of hero, or savior of the universe.  Lately, it has gotten so bad that NPCs have started to comment on our deeds.  Is this good?


 


Or would you rather play a "behind-the-scenes" type hero, that get things done without all the glory?  How about the ability to have alias's?


 


Reading through the "Character Name" thread, I got to thinking that it would novel (and cool, in my opinion) to be able to change a character's name.  Head into a new settlement and give a new name.  Be a new person that no one has heard of before.  Add nicknames or monikers as you do deeds.


 


In Skyrim (most recently for me), why do guards know if I can make potions, enchant, conjure, sneak, or do illusions?  How do they know this?  Did I put on a show somewhere and stun the audience with my skills and abilities?  Are the couriers spreading nasty rumors about me?  The worst thing for a thief or assassin is to be known, especially by guards.  Yet shopkeepers "keep an eye on us" if we have some ability above a certain number.  Ever have a merchant run up to you as you enter their store and watch you wherever you go?  I have, and it is unnerving :smile:


 


How many of SKyrim's people have ever heard of an Elder Scroll, much less read one?  How do these everyday NPCs know about Alduin and The Dragonborn?


 


Many players enjoy the accolades they get from NPCs in a video game.  Sometimes, yes, I do also.  If I defeat a well-known baddie, pat me on the back.  But if am stealing you blind, I am doing it wrong if you know about it :smile:  I have seen many posts on message boards about "being recognized" in video games for actions taken.  Again, sometimes this an enjoyable thing.  Many times, though, it is a bit much, like a guard saying as you come into town, "Don't go fiddling with any locks."  WTF?  Do you say that to everyone that enters the gates?


 


Give me some anonymity, please.  What say you?

Hello fellow Europeans who are shoe collectors or bargain hunters.


 


 


Here we list online stores in Germany that various shoes for different activities and clothing and some other stuff. Add your experience dealing with them and help fellow forum users found some hidden gems.


 


thank you and good luck scrolling the web while watching cat vids and so on.


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


So my experience are Limited only with Blue-tomato and kickz.


 


 


Both are good companies and ship with good times. Bad thing is my Homecountry. Local delivery Network is not nearly as good as German version.


 


UPS and DHL works kinda depending your area.


 


There are wide variety of payment options ( i don't have credit card nor paypal, so bank transfer option is really awesome).


 


 


 


 


Bad things about foreign companies (they have not figured out how to write my last name).


 


DHL tracking program is quite bad compared to UPS and even my loval Post office. My country has really annoying and slow post office network.


 


You need to know your size when buying. returning and ordering is tedious job i know. Same thing applies to other online shops.


 


Overall i give 4/5 for both companies (nothing in this world is perfect)


 


 


 


 


 


 


So how about rest of the gang.
