Yes! Thank you for continuing on this. And ofcourse you can use my stuff, the cause is great and is totally worth it! I'll make a new menu screen especially for Soulvizier :)
Only one suggestion - don't use the gray interface from Underlord. Vanilla UI is fitting the game world better imo.
About new heroes - I can help with skins for sure, if you need the whole package (skills, souls, etc.) I'll try, only don't know how good I am in balancing.
You can find the source files for Enhanced Gameplay here:


Thank you. I don't know if I must have a hard mod for a new main menu to work (or maybe it works if you load then reload a game ?)
For the interface : I wasn't planning on changing it actually. I put a dark gray background on mastery skill panels for one reason : some guy decided that when you have + skills, skill level should be written in light blue. It's unreadable. This is mainly for readability. But maybe small black windows around the level numbers could do the trick ? Or if you know how to change this light blue color ? Couldn't find any way in the database.

Yes, I hadn't expected you to include all the 100 affixes at once. I made a Google Doc with the most interesting ones. It will be sent to you with the forum's PM feature. Hopefully some of these will reveal themselves useful for you. ^^

Also, I figured I lacked experience with SV so I'm probably not best suited for the hero-design part. I guess I could help doing custom effects with PSEditor, though.

Lastly, I just figured you were from France. We could comunicate together in french by now. :p

Herja the Devastator
Gunnr, Battle Maiden - Warfare + Rune
Mist - Some kind of fog aura
Göndul Fatesealer - Spellcaster

Starkad the Jotunborn
Styrbjörn the Strong
Heimir, king of Hlymdalir
Helgi Hundingsbane
Hagbard the Sea-King

1. Valkyrie Heroes
Eir the Merciful - Healing skills

EDIT : I checked, it was the only one.

I checked the same list, but it seem I've missed Eir.

Working on affixes, I'm getting rid of those useless OA affixes on ranged weapons.
Nordic Games has wiped out suffixes, but haven't touched prefixes, which makes no sense.
I prefer to create ranged versions of affixes instead of deleting them.

What do you think of these :

Treacherous prefix : replacing +40 OA (in original Soulvizier) by +8% Projectile Speed, and 25% chance of +15% Pierce Damage
Murderous prefix : replacing +60 OA (in original Soulvizier) by +12% Projectile Speed, and 25% chance of +20% Pierce Damage
Veteran prefix : replacing +19% Physical Damage, +15% OA by +22% Physical Damage, +15% Projectile Speed, and 25% chance of +40% Pierce Damage

Finally, a big question : what to do with souls ? Let them as rings ? But rings are quite useless then. Another proposal : make some of them become relics for rings. Balance things like this : 1 max soul as a ring, and 1 max soul as a relic (otherwise a major penalty is given to the player). What do you think ?

Imo leave them as rings. If you split them on 2 types, you cant equip 2 souls of the same kind or the souls you really want. Buff blue/purple rings to compare with souls instead. For example, I remember I preferred using Magma Stone ring for an Earth char more than any low level soul.

About the ranged OA affixes, they look good to me.

OK, another option would have been to create formulas to make any soul convertible to a relic for jewelry (1 max soul as ring, 1 max as relic). That way the player would have an incentive to use at least one ring other than a soul, and some relics for jewelry. But this would require quite some work.
For now, I think I'll stick to souls as rings only. Balance would be achieved like this :
- Yellow/green rings are buffed with a flat health/energy regen in SV0.98. Some new affixes make them more appealing + they get relics and charms
- Blue/purple need a buff for some of them, but still not enchantable
- I think souls still need to have a handicap, or have tiny bonuses if no handicap, and shouldn't be enchantable any more. But in the other hand the drop rate might be increased so that you can use those fit for your build.

Found out that throwing weapons have the same affix tables than axes, which seems pretty bad considering they don't need offensive ability.
I was thinking of giving them the affix tables of bows for a start. And maybe in the future, create their own tables.
Thoughts ?

Yeah, I don't see a point in using axe affixes. Bow ones sonds good.

Some more names for Alfar heroes:

Quote
Velent the Artisan
Egil
Slagfidr
Olafr
Skuld Half-blood (the only female I found) - shes a half-elf witch in legends (seidrworker skills maybe?)

Since elves are only female in Ragnarok, maybe we need to invent some names. The question is, should they be more fantasy like (like in LotR) or just Nothern female names that sound good?
Another possibility is to try making male elves. Maybe a retextured male teen mesh can do the trick. I'm on a elf-related skinning spree right now anyway, will try :)

OK, I only have a little experience in retexturing but I never made new meshes or modified existing ones (if it can be done, I think I saw a few tutorials about this).
Maybe that a retextured female elf with reworked eyes/face and a male armor would do ? In general, adding armor helps.
Different animations may help too (not jumping like a nymph)

Hey, i found this in my old files, maybe you will like it:

Spoiler for Hiden:
It was made originally by Munderbunny, imo its better than the normal Occult icon.
Here is a slightly tweaked variant:

Spoiler for Hiden:
I softened the sigils to make it fit more with the other mastery icons.

I really loved the mod on IT. The way it expand the gameplay and add more usefull mechanic (loot orb, Heros souls, crafting etc). And the class rework, giving better synergies and usefull skills.

From the things you dont want to import from the IT version you said relic and charms on rare/legendaries. Is true it make them very powerfull... but at the same time, i feel they lack utility in the game. The only reason to use a relic or charm is to make a very good MI better (and go try your luck to find one).
