Progress Report

Currently I am working on importing some of the finished lines for the new characters I've written up.
I've decided to hold of on implementing any quests until all the new dialogue is added. I had problems with adding more quests in 2015, just before release. It was really frustrating and I'd rather save that for the end.

For those interested in numbers.

Original Summerset Isle available on Nexus has approximately 70 characters with unique dialogue. Of the 600 plus NPCs that can make the world seem like there isn't much communication. I aim to fix that. Of the 70 voiced characters, they had a total of about 1600 lines. When you compare that to mods like Inigo, Vilja, and 3DNPCs it isn't very much.

You have to consider that those mods are specific in their purpose, allowing the mod author to focus primarily on dialogue. As Summerset Isle has multiple Islands, and all the content you would expect from a DLC sized mod, plus only one person working on it. Putting all my time and effort into voice work would have detracted in different areas.

Currently I have added an additional 17 unique dialogue characters with an additional 795 lines of dialogue. bringing the totals to:
87 unique dialogue characters and 2395 lines of dialogue. Ideally I would like for there to be 140+ unique dialogue characters and 5000+ lines of dialogue.

I'm still waiting on a few voice actors to get some of their roles finished, that and I have more lines finished awaiting proofreading to be sent off. I also have a number of characters that don't have voice actors yet, so I will be setting up another casting call soon.

The Coral Halls

Welcome to the Coral Halls. One of many new areas in Summerset Isle. As mentioned, the update I am currently working on, when finished, should double the content, adding many more hours of game-play. With a voice cast consisting of old and new of about 20 voice actors from the original 7. This is just a very small taste of things to come.

Need more Voice Actors

As some of you may know, I have been working on an massive update that not only polishes Summerset Isle, but also aims to double the content. I have enough dialogue at this point to start doing auditions for parts. I have already signed on 15 voice actors, 12 of which are new to the project. I posted this on Nexus a while ago, but to no ones surprise I did not get any auditions from Nexus.

If you're interested, I'm still looking for mature voices, male and female. Here is a link to the official audition page:

When this casting call closes I will be opening up a more defined one.

"Necro-mancers?!"

So I was testing and one thing I guess I overlooked was necromancers.

I liked that in Morrowind the races were not over-saturated in stereotypes. You could find any race doing anything.

I was using Bethesda's default necromancer leveled list. I looked at the arsinal they have at their disposale and thought. "If I was a necromancer, I would probably want a summons, otherwise I would be up shit's creek if I was caught off guard."

So today was spent on making my own necromancers that make a bit more sense and with more variety in spells and races.

Voice acting progress

Happy to announce that Mr. Nick Poling has offered to do some more work on Summerset Isle with me.
Signed on a new voice actor who has already finished all the lines for one character. Processing some of the new lines that have been submitted and I have to say, I'm pretty excited about working with voice actors again, probably the most fun in modding for me.

To Nick and the others that have already started recording, you are the best!

Thanks so much for making Summerset Isle that much more better.

Still here

Sorry it has been so long since I posted here.
Just another heads-up to let everyone know, yes, I'm still working on the update. It's slow going, but it will be well worth it. I also want to send a special thank you to all those who donated to me in 2016 and early 2017. I didn't make Summerset Isle to make money, but I have put in the hours, and it is nice to have a thank you every now and then. I don't have the words to express how grateful I am to all of you, but know, that each edit I make to Summerset Isle, is done with care and with respect to those who have helped me along the way. Without mentioning names, Thank you, your support has helped me greatly.
