David Gaider Q&A - Part 4
10:11 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

The Dragon's Breath Forge has recently posted the 4th part of their Q&A session with David Gaider, developer for various BioWare titles such as Baldur's Gate 2 and Neverwinter Nights. As in the previous parts, the questions range from intelligent to ridiculous, querying everything from Gaider's favorite part of BG2's development to his favorite color.


Surprisingly, most of the questions center around BG2. Gaider notes that his favorite part was scripting the AI:

Scripting AI once I reached that level of ability...playing with the scripting language in ways it had never been intended. I can't really describe just how happy I was the first time I saw Draconis go invisible and then run off to a corner to heal himself.
He also notes that no more expansion packs are planned for BG2, which is not surprising considering the sheer openness of the upcoming Neverwinter Nights. Gaider adds that whatever adventures players want to see added to BG2 may as well be made themselves in NWN.


The rest of the Q&A is available at The Dragon's Breath Forge for those curious about Gaider's favorite color and food. He does answer some development-related questions as well, for those seeking more intelligent questions and answers.
