The Road to Dungeons & Deviousness: Director's Cut
This list is subject to change at any point.
This timeline is current as of 5/13/2021 and is subject to revision or delay as needed.
6/4/2021: Beta release
6/18/2021: Full release
NPC & Character Visuals
D&DDC will use a new set of NPC overhauls for a consistent look across towns and cities while retaining an attractive look for every NPC possible. Character visuals and customization will remain approximately the same as they are currently.
The NSFW mods included with D&DDC will be trimmed down and refined into a more coherent package that provides both challenge and excitement, disposing of mods that are barely functional or cause major issues. As with many NSFW mods, there will still be some jank, but that's to be expected.
Mods that modify gameplay such as Sacrosanct, the magic package, and so on will likely change to nerf things that were overpowered. As of the writing of this document, switching fully to SimonRim + SkyRem is being considered.
Armors & Weapons
The armor and weapon selection in D&DDC will be refined. Removals and additions are expected for this area of the list.
Several mod-added player homes will be included in D&DDC.
A few screenshot tools will be added to D&DDC. Expect a bit more flexibility with this function, but not nearly as much as Atelier.
There may be a few more followers added to D&DDC.
Loot & Economy
The loot and economy of D&DDC may be slightly revised to extend the early-game gold struggles.
Creatures & Population
Mod-added animals and creatures tend to not play nice with the NSFW parts of the list and will likely be removed. The enemy and friendly NPC populations will be revised, decreasing the former and possibly increasing the latter.
Quests & New Lands
The selection of mod-added quests and new lands are unlikely to change, though a few more additions may be made.
It is unlikely that the audio of D&DDC will be much (if any) different from D&D.
HUD & UI
The HUD & UI of D&DDC is not expected to change.
CBBE & 3BBB
The body selection for D&DDC will remain CBBE + 3BBB.
Combat & Difficulty
The combat and difficulty of D&DDC is expected to stay approximately the same. If this does change, expect the difficulty of D&DDC to be higher than D&D.
The quantity and selection of animations will not be changing.
Frostfall, Campfire, and so on will be returning for D&DDC, with the possible exception of bathing mods.
Legacy of the Dragonborn will continue to not be included in the list.
