Good people, it’s high time for another DevConnect!
We were blown away by all the responses and enthusiasm we saw for the previous topic—Top 5 Quality-of-Life Changes—and want to thank you all for giving us more insight into your experiences with WildStar, and how we can make your time on Nexus even better. Be sure to read our follow-up reply to that topic if you haven’t already.
For this DevConnect we want to switch gears a bit and encourage discussion on a critical, community-driven staple of MMO gaming: user interface (UI) mods and add-ons. Depending on the type of content you enjoy playing, third-party add-ons may feel like an absolute necessity to your success; and, to this end, we’re very fortunate to have a solid core of add-on authors in the WildStar community. These folks dedicate their spare time to helping their fellow gamers—they create tools that offer a wide array of conveniences, as well as aid in group coordination through challenging content and complex boss encounters.
With that in mind, we’d like to know which add-ons are your favorite, or you consider the most crucial to your gameplay. Also, what kinds of UI mods and add-ons would you like to see that don’t currently exist, or are outdated?
As you offer suggestions for other types of functionality you’d like to see incorporated into existing add-ons, please take this opportunity to show all WildStar add-on developers your appreciation for what they do. Their creations are often lifesavers on Nexus, and they continue to push us at Carbine to ensure that we’re providing the best gameplay experience possible with WildStar.
For the add-on developers among you, we encourage you to introduce yourselves in this thread, tell players which add-on(s) you develop/maintain, and share a little bit about what got you into doing this for WildStar.
We look forward to hearing from add-on authors and users alike!
As this DevConnect is a little different from previous rounds, we’ll keep the thread open for about a month, until Friday, October 21, and plan to have a new DevConnect topic ready for you by late October.
