Maps and the Editor / Re: Using the game's existing map in your mod

Yeah, sorry I don't know. The people that made the map decompiler and the helpful fellow that updated it for me are better able to address this sort of question.

Bridges are tricky to add to the map and there's only so much finesse an old man can muster to paint no-passing along the edge of them. Especially when I am full of coffee and cigarettes.

Yeah, these are the base game files I imported in case I wanted to do something with them later but I haven't yet.

So these items in the base game can't spawn with either Dream or Runemaster, since Immortal Throne was released I assume.

There's no point adding extra relic to an epic or legendary item though.

Did you mean the boss game balance attributes?

yeah, the version of game engine I was modding was from before the devs updated to include the bossgamebalanceattributes file.

Well, that's gonna hurt when I add it and playtest lol

Today another quiet small defeat since the release of Ragnarok.

In Styx I turned the geysers to proxies that then can spawn the original decorative geyser or a monster that looks like a geyser and erupts doing col and poison damage.

This worked flawlessly in my previous iterations of this mod.

Now, XPack/SceneryHades/nature/rock/rockobj/rock_styx_poisongeyser_06.dbr doesn't show up in game.

People reported a spot in Styx you couldn't walk.

Why isn't THAT geyser showing up in game anymore but all the others do? I don't know. Same with a boulder in the Orient, just stopped showing up.

So I imported the original meshes in a duplicate directory in my mod. Nope.

I rebuilt the pathing in Styx. Well, it shows up but it ignores the movement parameter settings in the database and you can walk right through it. I can only add the 0 to dblIgnorePathing setting so hard and hit save so hard and hit build so hard or I'll hurt myself. :)

So my ultimate solution is to restore the original pathing by copy-paste the offending map sections and removing the proxy from the database for good ol' no. 6 and replacing it in the database with the original static decoration file. At least it both shows up in-game and you can't walk through it.

I'm getting real tired of things breaking in the mod after they worked for so long.

Pet resistance ended up completely  static.

As I added skills and equipment bonuses over time, I just kept lowering the epic and legendary bonuses (in petgamebalanceattributes especially) until they are gone now. No penalty increases either.

Whatever resistances a pet starts with is all they have unless they have a secondary skill you add points to. Every pet has it's own resistance file and it's in their skill tree at level 1 across all levels of the pet files. Most have a "weakness" penalty to one or two damage types.

Keep in mind that side quest resistance bonuses (well, almost all of them) grant a resistance bonus to pets as well.

EDIT: Yes, all spiders that cast webs. The ones that shoot a ball used to spawn an invisible pet with a buff radius toggle skill. I changed it to a pet that dies instantly and has the new web skill set in their ondeath ability.

Speaking of Frost Wisps, something has occurred to me that's never come up before.

If the Frost Wisps have a debuff aura that lowers enemy cold resist and there are three of them now attacking an enemy, is the effect additive or does the game apply only the highest level version?

That's how I would have done it, but I don't know.

Yeah, I just decided to make a new mesh using the blackwidow and add the Boss Aura effect. I found that there's a texture at the very bottom of the spider directory blackwidowqueen which I used for the main boss and the web slingers are plain black widow but all have the aura effect.

Anyone notice I changed the webs skill on the spiders? I made a skill_defensivewall like Rune Mines and an AoE projectile using the cobweb2 mesh so that there's no more of that summons living after their master died bug so you can complete the quest.

One quest, did you removed the spiders from the last waves on Fetid Lair ? I only found the Arachnos that throws the poison bombs. i also noticed the shieldsmaiden rushing into a invisible monster i could see as named as Orbbed crawler probably it was the web, i think.
I noticed that, too. But I haven't modified those files from vanilla, it's some sort of bug...I will go in and see what I can do, maybe change the mesh.

EDIT: Oops, I guess I did change the mesh. I wanted to make them blackwidows but something went wrong. So I gave them their original mesh and Master Archer Machae controller and the Arachnos venom bolt skill.

Oops! Yes, I forgot...and forgetting things is going to get worse before it gets better, I will be 58 this month lol :))

Okay, the Levels.arc went from 1.4GB to 0.47GB. lol, you'd think it would be optimized automatically, like "What if we had something that automate redundant tasks, like some seried of computer commands that would execute without having to manually run it every time?" Wow, what a crazy idea! :D

Should finish uploading the compacted version in another 15 minutes from now.

I am uploading the newest build to MEGA.

If you are playing Storm, visit a Mystic and remove all your skill points from the Ice Golem skill line as they no longer exist before installing the update.

Well, Ice Golem base skill does, but it's level 6 now.

However, I think this is the last update as the alpha test seems to have been a great success and many bugs have been found and fixed. The game mod is playable at all which is all I wanted to achieve.

Thank you all for all the bug reports you have made, I appreciate the time and effort to play a buggy mod and not just rage quit lol :))

Please feel free to post any game breaking bugs here though as there might still be some out there.

I have a few very big projects I would like to focus on now including:

  • Boss treasure chest spawns. I will probably restore vanilla quest files and separate my mini-boss quest files for chest swaps so if there's a problem I can simply point at THQNordic/Pieces from now on.
  • Moving all player skills to a unique directory. (breaks all existing characters)
  • Making more sets for MIs in Atlantis and Ragnarok.
  • Making plain MI equipment so I can have vendors sell MIs but they will spawn as normal magical items mostly making the easy purchase of MIs a little harder so as not to make people OP too soon.
  • Add MI vendor to Egypt and Muspelheim. Update Atlantis and Prison of Souls vendors to include Hades MIs.
  • Trying to get the Psionic Touch skill line to work in my mod  ::)

* facepalm *

As long as the skill has 1 point in it, it will be accessible to the player as all skill trees exist in the player files simultaneously. Duh.

Thanks for reminding me.

Skills/default/defaultskills.dbr DOESN'T work in my mod. If it works at all, it doesn't work for me.

I restored flex, allpetattack and taunt to each mastery skill tree.

I'm really tired of this kind of thing.
