So a few days ago I mentioned that I was planning work on a collaboration project that I'm very excited about; one that will turn Frostfall as you know it upside-down. I'd like to talk about it now since I hate keeping secrets!
For Moonpath to Elsweyr by Muppetpuppet and future desert landmass mods
Some general information:What is it?
Sun's Height will be an add-on to Frostfall to bring heat exposure to the table when venturing in desert landscapes, such as those added by Moonpath to Elsweyr. Frostfall will be required for Sun's Height to work. It will not (and will never) be offered as stand-alone. It will, however, be a separate download.How will it work?
Sun's Height will open the exposure system in the other direction. When playing in desert areas, you're going to have to think backwards; in a hot area, the coolest you can get is "Comfortable", much how you can't get "too warm" in Frostfall in traditional Skyrim areas; getting wet is now refreshing, not harmful;, and that armor that granted lackluster protection to the cold might be exactly what you need to beat the heat.Will Last Seed factor in to this?
Absolutely. If playing with Last Seed (my planned Primary Needs mod), your thirst and fatigue rates will be affected by the heat.What areas will you support?
Sun's Height's effects will never be felt in the Skyrim worldspace. For that, you'll need to go south. I will support Moonpath to Elsweyr's areas, and other desert / Elsweyr-based landmasses as they become available.Is this taking away from Frostfall development?
No. This is all on paper right now. I am very actively working very hard to get Frostfall 1.6.1 finished before I begin work on anything else.When's it come out?
Don't know yet. Might be before I start working on Last Seed, might be after. We'll see.
Sun's Height will take its place next to Frostfall, Last Seed, and a future camping, injury, and locational damage mod as part of a group of mods called the Skyrim Survivor Series.
Now, back to work for me on the update! I hope you have a good weekend!
