Party Formation

We need to be able to manage our order of travel.

I want to change formation but can't.

If you drag people you can change the order party members try to move to relative to your clicks, but not the pattern.  It would be really nice to be able to choose different formations baldur's gate style.  For example if your party is in the order Fighter, Cleric, Rogue, Wizard, when you click on the ground in an open area the fighter will go to the front left spot, cleric to the front right, rogue to the back left and wizard to back right.  If you reorder people, the spots they try to go to change.

OK, I accidentally discovered the answer to how to determine party formation.

If you want Tanks up front, leading, then choose them first when you pick your adventurers when starting the game

The sequence you choose them in determines who is in front and who is in back..

If you will notice looking at the menu when talking to a vendor, that is the order in which they appear.

Yes, but sometimes the game seems to reverse the order during cut scenes & the like.  A lot of players have noted that in the Aksha fight, the game puts their tanks in the back after the cut scene, even though they are in front normally.

An option to rearrange the marching order or formation would be welcomed by many!

I certainly agree there.

I would love to make different formations.

Speaking of which, has anybody ever wondered why we have to have "designated resting areas" when we're supposed to be people who live in the wilderness most of the time and have to make camp on a daily basis?

Whose brilliant idea was it to restrict where we can camp?

You can just drag and drop on the left side of your party menu which character is in front - second - third and last. Then when you select the 4 player icon again the party will readjust.

That works!

Thanks
