@muker I understand the concern, but instead of merely avoiding it... having an option for a 'quick trim' that doesn't change the character looks (basically maintenance on your look) would allow for the system without making people frustrated about changing their hair style!

RE: Fishing in Fractured
Fishing can be as complex or as simple as desired, and people tend to either enjoy it or not. At least, this is what I have seen in other games. In general, the shift merely changes who enjoys it.
Either way, as long as the rest of the game is solid fishing won't really hurt (unless, like in so many other games, it becomes a hard requirement of absolute boredom that leaves people looking for cheating tools...)
RE: Lich Transformation unlocked!
Lich is a full spectrum, as Kellewic said. It's stated on the news/blog that:
"One final word here. You thought a Lich has an Evil alignment? Just because it’s not technically alive anymore? Bad! Prejudice! A Human turning into a Lich preserves its Karma and Alignment – it’s no different from a regular Human in this regard!"
Also, they covered that they have weaknesses as well as bonuses in that same blog.
RE: How is the Development Team going to solve...
That is how games have been developed since... well, since Pong was the height of computer games. Games take 5-8 years on average (for the bigger titles) and have since the 90s at least.
There's not a game out there being developed on RTX 3080Ti (a very few might be aiming for 2050) right now... so should that be out and about for development (games will still aim for 1080 at that point, likely, as they love to maximize playerbase) it will be several years before the big graphics hit in development.
RE: Professions, crafting, and building...oh my!
Perhaps the best resource out there would be the crafting Q&A from the livestream on the news page. Whether you have the patience to listen through it all on video is up to you. I know that video is a less than ideal source for information to many people.
Maybe the devs can give us a bit more of the crafting stuff in a spotlight here?!?
RE: Here's hoping for a game I can get into!
Story here will... be more what we all make of it. However, there's a lot of people that underestimate how much fun that can be, and just how involved a system with full in game economics can become when it isn't just a short grind to get anything done, and especially when things are not available in all locations.
Anyway, hope you find something here to enjoy!
RE: I'm new, what is unique to this game?
The most basic information is that the game is a sandbox with three worlds that have different rulesets. In terms of unique, there's the PvE focused world of Arboreus. In terms of less common, the game doesn't really do levels so much but instead uses a knowledge system with only a few ranks. So everything you are doing is the goal, rather than grinding levels to start.
There's a lot more than that, of course, but those are some big points about the game overall. For more details, I suggest starting with the news/blogs on the main site, then asking specific questions as you feel you need. Everyone is going to have different focal points, after all!
RE: Just a(some) quick question(s).
@jetah That's actually where basic contracts would be a good thing. Ideally with some system that allowed for identifying who exactly broke it, but just that it is broken is enough in ideal terms. Not so sure in realistic terms.
After all, either somebody is going to have a bunch of broken contracts for scamming, or it's going to be a one-off thing where something went wrong. Sadly, there will be people who game systems with reputation just like always (for example, very simple contract trading back and forth if it is an automated completion % system will give them a solid rating while they scam others).
AKA, there really does need to be something to cut a little deeper, because the moment people start showing failed/scam contracts the counter will be a flood of successful ones. Heck, the scammers will unite to do that.
