This is my idea:

Years after the defeat of Jack of Blades, our hero finds himself once again needed by the people of Albion. Pirates, lead by the infamous Fiend of the Sea, Iron Tooth the Scurvy, have besieged and captured Hook Coast.

As this would seem a simple case of classic "Bandit-Be-Gone" Hero tactics, they are outnumbered and holed up in an aquatic steel war machine, lovingly dubbed "Darla."

Will you infiltrate the Pirate ranks and topple this threat, or will you rise to power as a Pirate king, and rule as tyrant of the seas?


OKAY!

My idea is, that through a quest, you have to gain a Pirate's uniform, and take a dingy to the anchored "Darla" in the Hook Coast bay. Then, while there, it's a game of covert ops to slowly unravel the rope that holds a noose on Hook Coast.

As far as new content, I'm guessing some new tats, some new beards and hairstyles, and of course, new clothing. Weapons aren't necessary, but could be a plus. (Although, if somehow, a flintlock pistol could be in place, THAT WOULD BE SICK!)

I also thinking, while in your quest to sabotage "Darla", you find a map to the Fountain of Youth, which will restore your youthful vigor; as well as other Easter eggs for your character to stumble/or not to stumble across.

Ok this could all be possible, but it would require an excellent level editor, and of course only existing areas could be edited. Not to mention you'd need to edit an existing quest. Maybe that snow troll attack thing you see all nullified when you take the wasp queen quest. Though that may just be filler to show you what could be later on. But all in all in all I think this is an excellent idea. If someone good enough at modding fable were to do this, I'd be all too happy. Surprised

new beards and hairstyles are not possible.

i mean, i like the idea but it would be a very very big project and its very hard.

Making the new armors, putting them on bandits, same thing for the pistol and cutlass, making a whole new quest, putting those new bandits (pirates) in hook coast without the other bandits (regular bandits like in twinblades camp) being changed and that fountain of youth, im not even sure if we are able to do this all, since allot of great modders left us.

I have seen new hairstyles and beards around here somewhere, I forget where however. Albeit they were edited but still new nonetheless. And the pistol I overlooked. There is next to none possibility for that. And as for the fountain of youth, I think that could be done through a cutscene that edits the CAppearanceModifierDef. A cutscene may not be able to edit that though.

i looked it up, and well..
New Hairstyle: Yes, but dynamic stuff isn't possible, and since hair is dynamic it will look stupid probably.
Pistol: its definitely possible, only problem is that you will still hear the bowstring sound and it will still shoot arrows.
a new arrow mesh and a new sound would be the solution but no one knows how to fix that sound problem and i haven't seen a new arrow anywhere.

EDIT: Johndoe made a gun once, and he made bullets (sort off).

Actually there has been a new arrow. The slim jim longbow's arrow to be precise. And as for the ridding of the bowstring sound, I don't know HOW it could be done, but the repeater crossbows don't have ANY sound. So maybe something in there could get rid of that at least.

I'm positive that they don't have sound. no string no "KTCHOO" arrow sound, Nada. Heck for some reason those things have infinite range and perfect accuracy!

for some reason


Reason: They never finished it and thats why they didnt put it in the game.

Well this is a thing to know and its a good progress on making a gun, we can even change the mesh of the repeater xbow and make bullets and we are done :'D

but it will always be a rifle, since it would look stupid to hold a pistol the way you will hold a xbow.

Well, I believe knowledge is free, so if anyone wishes to use this idea, pick it up and run with it, than do so freely, just make sure to credit me for the basis, which I'm sure most of you would do out of courtesy anyway.

This is a small modding community, so I say share and share alike, and by what I've seen, that was like that before I said it Razz

I'm just a brain-stormer, so you'll probably see a lot more posts like this in the future. I love feedback, it's so feedback-y XD

No. The ship would have to be a teleporter, no sailing the high seas. And what you're calling for is an objective-driven quest and we can't do that.

flintlock pistol
We could, just wouldn't look right.

The only thing that can reverse aging is a quest, or possibly a cutscene. We can't do quests, we can't add new cutscenes.

Bows and Crossbows are different weapon types I believe. Hence the sounds. You'd need to follow the trail backwards to the sound banks.

Hmm i've always wondered about that quest an the other one that appears, I always manage to get my renown high enough as soon as i leave the guild (because i'm obsessed with completing everything i can before questing) to take the quest, but then it disappears, is it actually possible to take those quests? Very Happy

No. Their fake quests meant to make the other Hero's look like productive members of society.

So they're just quest dummies with names and info put on the map table with no purpose?

Through cheating, one can get enough renown to accept the quest, but nothing happens.

Also, in doing this, the menu doesn't boot the player out of the quest select screen as it usually does when there's no more quests, I know that means something and I used to have a theory on it but can't seem to remember at the moment.

Probably because you may sitting in a different quest menu. I'm sure there's a byte in the Definition that controls kicking you out when it's empty.
