I've always wished I could see a full 3d layout of the ruins, just to appreciate the scale of such a place.

Definitely, yeah. For starters, the first three rooms hint at the Goddess statue at the bottom if you fall into the depths, but it's only after you've solved the Spinning Room and done the Boob Jump (tm Brickroad) that it becomes obvious that her room is the absolute rock bottom of the dungeon and all other rooms float above it. (And if you climb down to her feet, and try to jump onto the axis, you're automatically respawned.) Going by the layout of the first three rooms, the room with the Red Devil/Five Doors SHOULD be as least long as those; then the Skull Wall and the 45° Room keep moving forward past that, but then the 2.5D section sends you back at least the length of the 45° Room, and everything after is a perpendicular path that goes under the ruins and pops you back up at the 2nd room.

I'm sure there's some geometry-loading trickery that prevents the ruins from "snapping together" neatly, which makes it more fun. But I would love to see a complete 3D model of at least the basic layout of the rooms, if not their individual details.

I started playing this again recently! Picked up the Royal Edition upgrade and decided to start anew. The optional first person mode is awesome and impractical for the same reasons that Grand Theft Auto V's optional first person mode is awesome and impractical.

Gonna try to actually beat the game instead of getting sidetracked by fishing and sidequests forever this time, but really I just want to get to the point where I can go boating and get the monster truck mod.

I've been watching a buddy play this game on PC for the first time. The English voice cast is really jarring to listen to, but at least most of the chocobros sound decent. My friend tho is playing with mods on. And it's kinda madness-inducing. As someone who actually really dug the story of the game, it's hard to take it seriously when Gladio is swinging a giant surfboard, or better yet when the cast has their models replaced with Goofy, Sora, and Donald.

I'm actually making progress in this game! I got sidetracked by Chapter 3 and its huge open world for a while (again), but I've now made it to Chapter 7. I can finally go to the Vesperpool! I almost got killed by a cockatrice family when collecting car parts! =D

I'll probably get distracted by all the hunts and delivery quests again once Gladiolus comes back from his DLC episode and I get the monster truck and boat (Royal Edition), but I'm having fun going to places I couldn't before.

In general the main four and the major NPCs (i.e. anybody who has an entry in the Dossiers) are mostly pretty good in the English voice acting department. It's the other NPCs that tend to get the short end of the stick.

Noctis has also been turned into 2B and Cloud, from what I've seen.

Speaking of mods, there's one to turn Noctis into Spider-Man, but what I really want is one to turn Prompto into Spider-Man. Like c'mon, he's practically Peter Parker already!
