The Cities Mod Ragnarok version 5
« on: 06 August 2021, 19:17:15 »
Greetings fellow titan questers.

     I am here today to announce that version five of The Cities Mod Ragnarok that I first posted about three years ago is now available for download.  Version five has everything from the previous versions plus some new stuff, and numerous tweaks and fixes to the previous equipment.  For this version it is VERY important to read the Introduction text file.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

     For those of you who have not tried the older versions of this mod, let me explain why I posted my mod under World Modification.  The Cities Mod has all of the following...


     Twenty-six new maps worth over 15,000,000 experience points; enough to put a character at level 44.  A map that is the regular Titan Quest Anniversary Edition game, but with all the additions I made.  An inventory map that has all the items from the game plus everything that I added.

     Over twenty new armor sets.  Two super sets of armor; one with over twenty pieces, and another with over forty pieces.  Two super sets of equipment with over twenty pieces each.

     Over one hundred new formulae.  Seventy-two new rings.  Twenty-one new amulets.  Four new artifacts.  New relics, some of which have a large number of different completion bonuses.

     Many merchants have expanded inventories.  They might sell relics, charms, unique jewelry, and formulae.

     I added more skills to each mastery.  I added four more skills to each mastery; three skills at tier one and one skill at tier six.  I tried to make the new skills particularly useful to that mastery.

     There are over one hundred new skills, and variations of old skills, in armor and other items.

     When a beginning characters goes to the CitiesModRagnarok~world01.map map for the first time he will not get a copper dagger, he will get an Adventurer's Ring.  The ring gives him the ability to summon an Adventurer's Kit.  The kit includes weapons, armor, rings, money and so on.  There are several kinds of Adventurer's Rings, but each character will get only one.


     In all, the mod is almost eight gigabytes in size.  I put the mod in my Dropbox so that you can download it.  There is a limit to the file size that Dropbox can handle.  I was forced to separate the mod into nine parts.  Just download all the parts into the same folder and the parts should auto-assemble into one big CustomMaps folder.  Again, please read the Introduction text file before you start playing.

     I will be grateful if someone posts a message to let me know that they downloaded everything and the mod works okay.

Sincerely,
DrGray

Hello! Seems like great work. :)

     I will be grateful if someone posts a message to let me know that they downloaded everything and the mod works okay.

I'm doesn't use dropbox long time... however believe, i'm doing everything right. I'm going by first link, and press "download", and it shows error - "The zip file is too large.". Yep, it can browse your's zip archive content, but did not let download it as original file, no matter logged-in I'm or not. May be installing their app might help, but sounds too complex. So, effectively can't download. Same happens with second link, and rest links i'm did not check.

UPD: Huh, parts 3 .. 9 => seems downloadable.

To Lixiss,

     Okay, here is what I did.  I split parts 1 and 2 into three parts; part a, part b, and part c.  So put part a, part b, part c and parts 3  through 9 into the same folder and they should auto-assemble into one big CustomMaps folder.

     I do not know why some parts downloaded okay and some did not.  All nine parts are about the same size.  However, if it gave an error message that the file was too large then breaking it down to smaller pieces should solve the problem for you.  Please let me know.

     I want to thank you for letting me know that there was a problem.  I want everyone to enjoy my mod, and I hope that this fix helps you and other people who have the same problem.

Nothing of this links works. I'm believe dropbox can't handle so much files (and report it as 'size'). Actually your archives hold all of .dbr files which you used, but end users needs only {name}.arz files (as game never load .dbr, even while ArtManager copy them). So... I'm guess if you will not include .dbr files - this all will make much simplier with this parts, and you ends with much smaller archives.

     I believe that you are correct.  Dropbox uses a definition of the word "size" not currently in the dictionary, and somehow includes the number of files.  I took your advise and removed the .dbr files so that part one and part two are now smaller in size and in "size."

Thanks! Now looks like all parts 1-9 are downloadable! :) [I'm actually think what dropbox recompress zip's and doing stupidly in fact. Some (mine local) software see one recursive empty named folder, but... well, never seen this before (and this is not your fault). I'm even tried download with dropbox app with sync... but decided personally to never use their service again. It just suck... I'm pressed "save to dropbox"... and what? Once i'm want delete this saved folder from my account it say - there is too much files in folder to delete, lol... what?! :))) ] (i'm did not accept software which doesn't do what i'm request).

There is surely nothing wrong with sharing via dropbox, if you prefer it - it is definitely work, just looks like have few small nuances, which you solved.

I'm will try mod later, but really not sure when this happens, just download and put it in some kind of queue.

PS: Does it work with TQAE 2.9? Readme says about 1.57 or so...?

To Lixiss,

     Good question.  I do not know.  Anniversary Edition 1.57 was installed when I bought Ragnarok.  I have not upgraded since then.  With as many problems as I have with Dropbox, I have had even more with Steam.  At this point, Steam no longer supports the operating system on the computer that I use to play Titan Quest.  So version 1.57 is as far as I am able to go.

     Once again, I want to thank you for your help, and useful suggestions.

Sincerely,
DrGray
