Bug Reports SV AERA / Re: Soulvizier AERA bug topic
« on: 25 April 2020, 01:41:33 »
actually I tried it again and it seems random. Sometimes it works, 90% of the time it doesn't. I tried different keybindings, didn't seem to have an effect. I started recording to show you and of course it worked first time then.

I'm sure that's not helpful but not sure what else to add.

I had the same issue with heat shield, although putting a point into heat Accretion seems to fix it.  :-\

hell yeah man.
There was a mod for D2 called Median XL that was great for that sort of thing. I specifically remember they had recipes to break down unique weapons into shards, and then 5 shards = a crystal, and that crystal could be combined with specific item types to create a unique of that type. It was such a good single player experience.

Just bought Atlantis solely in anticipation of this mod. Nordic should be paying you a commission

And the best way to help is just to contribute ideas for new monsters and their skills and soul stats?

Is Falcon coming back as a pet? If not can I suggest a tweak I made to my vanilla campaigns? (because its cool and because i am bone chillingly lazy)
Study Prey summons the falcon but it is invincible/out of combat/0 aggro, and only does a 1-1 dmg basic attack but casts study prey inherently for you. Flushout just modifies his skill as normal. In my games I rename it to Eagle Eye because of my charming sense of humor.


I'll just leave that suggestion at the foot of the council to consider.

This sounds like a great quest reward overhaul. I understand the worry for balancing reasons, (maybe increase resist penalty in epic and legendary by +5/10?) but I hope that this will really make completing secondary quests much more rewarding.

And yeah I was referring to hp regen. I figure .1/.2 flat or 5/10% isn't too much to be OP and its something that every character can benefit from. And it seems like a nice pacifist reward for helping strangers.

So I only suggested passive skills since that was in the game before.. You mentioned having free reign to add skills.... Does that mean active skills could be added as well?!?
Ideas are swirling!

Side note: What is your all time favorite simpsons quote?

Woohoo, good news indeed. I remember the old site had a guide for "worthwhile" quests. Looking through this list (full disclosure I haven't played  through act 5 yet) I jotted down some where a bonus could make sense. I know this mod already adds a few more skill points, but my thoughts are that multi part quests (hades treasurery, wealth of old kinds etc) should probably get a skill/attribute point as a nice juicy reward. rescuing people could get a small life/heal bonus for being such a nice person. (+5/10 hp or +5/10% hp regen. Very small to avoid opness as a lot of quests could fit in here)
Some that have obvious ties (order of promethean giving fire dmg, maybe cold dmg/res for killing the yeti?)

I put my suggestions in red, trying to space out a bit. Not sure if all this is possible so feel free to disregard, but thought it might give you some good ideas if you decide to go this route.

Made it to Heraklion, no pets no deaths the way the game was meant to be played.  C:-)

Satyr bladefinger running animation is my favorite thing so far.

I found the balance to be much better than in previous version - I think due to a lot less stun from enemies. It hasn't been easy, but few things have felt impossible. (Gorgon slayers in acropolis out regen my damage, Glorburg boneraiser ratman hero shotgunned me like crazy with his staff.) not sure if you want the mod to be easy enough to beat without pets but I am enjoying it. The added character levels and post 40 bonuses will likely go a long way to make no pets possible.

Will the olive branch collecting quest be coming back? Or was that the effort that utterly broke your spirit and left you as an empty shambling husk where once a man stood?

Quests that have rewards that permanently affect your character are always 10x more satisfying and rewarding than exp and gold. Not sure how difficult it is to switch up rewards but I have... thoughts on the matter.

I probably suggested this before but getting random resistance from the proper offering can be really irritating (fire resistance as an earth character!) instead of 5+7+ 5(all) i suggest 2(all)+3(all)+5(all). similar amount and more balanced. If you want to give psn resist to characters i would say add similar amounts to poisoned spring reward or xipphuluis the healer. If you really want to go crazy, give poison resist to poison spring in lieu of HP, and then add small hp rewards (5-10) to lots of different sidequests, to really encourage completionism. As I understand it quest bonuses are just questtree skills getting points added to them, so it would be possible to increase them by these smaller set amounts, correct?
That's just my thought as I sometimes zip by sidequests that arent on the main road if they only offer exp and gold. (skeleton raiders I am looking at you)
