  1. I second all of the sentiments in this post. I've been somewhat active in the past year on some non-Baldur's Gate related parts of Reddit. I think it broke something in my head. Here's to the next fifteen years!
  2. Do you remember the Moomin books by Tove Jansson? Perhaps you had the stuffed toys, or some of the other merchandise? Well, it seems there's a new Moomin animated TV series on the way, and they have an Indiegogo campaign: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/moomin-animation--3/x/16337145#/ Do check it out - the world definitely needs more cute animated characters!
  3. Like the others, I'm sorry to hear that. Thank you for keeping us updated all this time, though.
  4. There are books in the various houses in Gullykin, as well. I think they're mainly from the "History of [country]" series, but don't quote me on that.
  5. Fanart within two days of the mod's release? I love the future! Thank you for this.
  6. I'm disappointed, but I can't say I'm surprised. I understand the argument behind "people don't identify as well with 19th century people," but I don't think that's an excuse*. To me, something like Sherlock Holmes was a product of its time and is what it is. If it's not relevant any more, then maybe people shouldn't be trying to "modernize" it. I have the same problem with the Lord of the Rings movies, but I'm even more alone in that position than I wager I am with regard to the Sherlock Holmes "modernizations". *I also think it's a modern disease that people can't identify with or be interested in a show/book/game/whatever that doesn't star people who are exactly like them. It's a form of social mis-training.
  7. Yeah, I ended up opening the archive manually in WinRAR and extracting the files myself. The error happened right when it opens, before I specified the directory at all. I haven't had a chance to look into the firewall/virus protection angle yet, but I will.
  8. At least, it does for me. It opens and shows the "choose your installation directory" screen, but then it pops up one of those "[Application] has stopped working, Windows is checking for solutions" dialog boxes. I don't know if anyone else has been having this problem, but I thought it would be worth letting you know.
  9. I can't believe (in a good way) that you really did this! That's awesome. I have a feeling I'm going to end up reading through this instead of marking essays this weekend. Eh.
  10. The community's reaction is what has disappointed me. I feel that people have been overly critical and demanding, and a lot of posters on the established mod sites look like they're opposed to the project simply because it might shake up the situation. I don't see a reason why you should trust the community instead of forming your own opinion based on either playing it yourself or whatever evidence (other than forums' oddly close-minded responses) you might have access to.
  11. Wow! I've always been interested in quantum mechanics; I might have to buy this in my next Amazon shopping spree. Congratulations!
