Character creation skills tooltips?

Post by ruthan » Thu Aug 08, 2019 1:28 pm

Its possible to add moveover tooltips to skills and other traits, or other more info about it? From name only im not sometimes sure, what something means, i dunno if such text or in manual it would be nice just add them to character creation as tooltips.
Its also possible that i only dont know specific way how to show some trait info and dont really remember is something like that was or wasnt in original game.

I agree with this feature. Unless you refer to the Daggerfall manual or to the UESP wiki, it can be difficult to know what each skill does exactly and, most importantly, what are the stats governing those skills.
Excuse the gloom.

Well the issue with both those sources is after research done by the developers during the building of DFU it has become clear that there is a lot of false and contradictory information around how Daggerfall worked. I know mikeprichard is putting a lot of effort into the UESP so it will get better and there is a thread for a DFU wiki which will be helpful.

I like both ideas of information boxes that give the high points and in game books that explain things further.
