A Few Bug Fixes And Some More
« on: 22 October 2018, 22:51:21 »

Main goal of this project is to fix issues and correct mistakes found in the game, as well as include and finish/remake things that's been cut or left out for various reasons, to improve player's experience and overall diversity of content.

-Remade some of the unfinished Atlantis artifacts and jewelry
-Fixed a major issue with some Atlantis legendaries (and a few others, like Aionios and Demonskin Walkers) never dropping from chests of any kind, resulting in a minuscule chance to find them
-Items now receive appropriate affixes in Atlantis instead of chest affixes for all armor and axe affixes for most weaponry; Ragnarok shields now get shield affixes
-Revamped and added a cut quest boss in Ragnarok
-Added a few items (including special Easter Eggs) that were left unused
-A dozen of new/remade weapons and a lot of shields (a whole lot of them)
-Balanced out throwing weapons drop weights to avoid player being flooded with them in Act 1-3
-Remade broken item skills (such as Andvaranaut's and Draupner's)
-Fixed Hydra's dysfunctional breath attacks that often caused game-ending lag
-New FXs for skills that either didn't have any or were lacking
-Improved model alignment in character's hand for spears in Atlantis (used to float somewhere in the vicinity of hand); Fixed weapon trail for spears in Ragnarok & Atlantis
-Various unused/remade cut content
-Various fixes & adjustments for items and enemies across the game
-A little bit creativity from yours truly

Any chance to add vitality staves to merchants?  Sees like an oversite.

You're welcome!

I don't think there are any common vit staves. Or you meant make new ones? Well as stated in the foreword (sort of) with this mod I'd prefer to do more of a restoration work rather than add something completely new.

Now however my dear ladies & gents I'd like to hear your opinion on this quick remake of an unfinished sling's model I did today.
Or maybe I should just let it rest because it'll look wooden any way?

The model of the sling looks good to me. If there is no trouble including them, then why not including them ^^

Yeah, it will be nice to include. About looking wooden - is it possible to add animated bones somehow?

Shouldn't the index finger go between the strings?  :)

Well you can't animate weapons meshes per se, but you could make the sling invisible and attach to it an animated decoration.
Then however we're presented with a problem of it playing animation (swinging) at all times, be it in the char's hands or lying on the ground.

great job ! it looks very unique :)

Thanks. I think I'll give it some more tweaking to see what I can come up with and add it in the next update.

I'll be honest here, I'm not sure it looks anything like a real sling. In my defense, source material weren't that great either

Hey, thanks for this!

I know how hard it is to track down bugs in the database, you did some mighty fine sleuthin' there pal. No lie :D

BTW, I am going to add these bugfixes to my mod I am making right now, this is really awesome!

I learned something new, too.

I didn't know you could use the loot table that way, imputting an array of the three different charms so you get a different one each difficulty...which begs the question: why the heck are there THREE DIFFERENT LOOT TABLES FOR EVERY CHARM IN EVERY MONSTER FILE, THEN?!

Could have just used the solution you made. Pretty neat little artmanager fact.

If you want an easy fix, Staff of the Deep (from Fjord Ihchtians) uses the bitmap of the Staff of the Chosen (from Nertus' cultists.)

Thanks. Added to the pile.

Added the MI sling and its new model (converted a few jackalmen from archers to throwers along the way as a means of obtaining it) and gave it a new suitable projectile. Created a proper bitmap for the MI staff and changed the way the missing unique thrown was added to the loot tables to give it more diversity
