I really hope that there is an option to have more control over moment speed outside of encumbrance. The ability to either run or walk does add to the immersion factor. And based on “Kingmaker” encumbrance will probably be nullified while in main camp/base, and would really help with immersion to be able to walk or to sprint depending on the story (Especially as mounts will be in the game). Would really cool to “Parade” down the thoroughfare with a group of mounted party members or to “Charge” down it at a full speed. Basically I would like the option, when it does not conflict with encumbrance. To control the speed of my party as the animation’s for the different speeds will already be in the game.
p.s. Originally I decided I would just wait for launch and if it was there wait for Mods to do it. However I had thought the same for kingmaker, but no mod touches on it.
