4 Attachment(s)
Huntiro's Mod for King's Bounty Crossworlds v1.31

You can play nearly all the new units from Warriors of the North and Dark Side in Crossworlds with this mod. Tons of improvements and fixes are also included.

Extract "Huntiro's Mod part1(20200910).zip" and "Huntiro's Mod part2(version Bitter Moon stable r2).zip" to the game folder.

Now you should be able to select the modded campaign named "Orcs on the March (Huntiro's Mod version Bitter Moon stable r2)" in the main menu. (Thanks to raknefne)

version Pumpkin Moon -20191111

I'm a bit too forgetful to list all the changes I have made in the past half year now since there are so many. Most of them are small tweaks. Maybe later.
Highlights:
1.I have rewritten many ma~~~ny scripts to wipe out nearly all bugs I can find, especially those related to new units from KB-Dark Side.
2.Added ma~~~ny new talents and abilities to existed units. eg: We now have all Demons with ability "Gating", snakes with ability "Find Weakness", totally reworked "Winged Shadows" and "Gorguana Ghosts" and a lot more.
3.Added ma~~~ny new items.
4.New unit: Necroh.
5.New spell: "Time Reset".
6.Troops with low morale have a chance losing their turn now.
7.Applied a morale bonus to AI in high difficulties.
8.Improved some talent related AI.
9.Spell "Life Light" now can resurrect troops. I think it is not that useless at last.
10.Spell "Phantom" now has a level limit and no longer benefits from Skill "Summoner".
11.Some OP units or teams nerfed while UP units buffed.
12.Spell "Awaken Dragon" is exclusive to Class Warrior(learned by default) now. Class Mage learns Skill "Alchemy" by default and the skill is hidden to other classes now.
By the way finally we get detailed hints when Blood Priestesses cast "Sacrifice" and Metamorphs have learned how to transform back when killed(so we can resurrect them properly).

Where is this download going to? I paused it, since it doesn't show on my screen as downloads do.

Mirror link added.

Erkilmarl 01-23-2019 03:18 PM

Thanks. I downloaded and tried it. (I have played this game over 500 hours in Steam only, so I don't know how fast I'll go forward.) It seems to be quite promising. The diversity of units is fine, usually I find it hard to find the first decent units. Now there are almost too many choices. BTW, have you deliberately tweaked Bolo so that one can not get the exp boost without triggering the nearby enemy unit?

raknefne 01-24-2019 10:46 AM

Sounds interesting with the new creatures. Did you change something map-wise in the editor regarding landscape or is it more what to hire in shops?

I will try it one of these days! Right now I'm trying to get thru Darkside which I only played very little when it was released. Have made a small mod for it.

Different enemy unit has different default guard range, so I think you may trigger a viking berserker but be safe with a snow nymph:)

I didn't edit the landscape, only have changed the troops you can hire in shops. Now you have more diverse units to choose from.

Erkilmarl 02-01-2019 07:51 PM

Did the 1c company just update Crossworlds (in Steam)? Or where did that come from? Anyway, I must reinstall the mod, since the game won't start.

raknefne 02-01-2019 09:27 PM

I played a little until I god to the Scrarlet Wind Island. It is soo funny trying like Amazon which I didnt meet in Darkside yet. My only concern - and made me have a break from the mod - is balance. I can get very good creatures early, at level 3 I bought Demonologists in the main castle in Scarlet Wind.

Perhaps change the difficulty in the game to become harder, since having better creatures and more items makes it easier overall? Maybe 250% on Impossible instead of 170%? Or similar things... 120% - 160% - 200% - 250% for instance. Then you can always choose to play Normal if 250% is too much.

I suppose it is a matter of taste.

Crendagord 02-02-2019 02:49 PM

Nice work. I especially like the pegasus maiden. I'm curious to know how you created this model and how you managed to add the ice dryad without breaking transparency

Each time I try to create a new unit, transparency is broken

Erkilmarl 02-04-2019 07:48 PM

Why is my game updated now? Anyway, the solution is easy: I keep the mod files in Steam directory and reinstall them every time I want to play.

raknefne 02-05-2019 02:18 PM

I will have a go again with a bit increased difficulty, maybe 200% on impossible...

I mailed you thru the 1C, I have a question about creatures/modding.

In Xworld it is actually easy to make the mod a standalone game to choose from among other mods/games, to avoid replacing the orcs.kfs ... I couldn't do it in WoTn, but works fine in Xworld with for instance the RedSand or Trent mod.

Erkilmarl 02-07-2019 10:38 AM

The Grinskin encounter in Rusty Anchor is broken: I can't use pet dragon and any damage is shown as 0 but will kill the whole unit.

raknefne 02-16-2019 08:13 PM

I did a few changes to the latest v1.31 so that you can play Huntiro's from the game menu without having to overwrite the ORCS ON THE MARSH. Instead you see 'Huntiro mod' in the game menu along with other mods etc.

Download: Removed, use Zhoudaohan's download link now.

I only changed this:

1) I put everything in a new folder named 'huntiro'

2) The orcs.kfs, I renamed huntiro.kfs

3) The text file eng_orc.txt I descriped text info about the mod. To Huntiro: You can just change this if you use my changes in an update.

So you unpack unto ... Crossworld\sessions. You will then see a folder next to ORCS, REDSAND or whatever mod u have named HUNTIRO

The model and animation files of pegasus maiden originally existed but the devs abandoned them.
About the ice dryad, if you mean some visual glitches with part of the reskined units like dryad, then this issue exists in "Ice and Fire" expansion and I guess the original creator of those new units has no access to the model files so he/she can only edited them using a hex editor and this may cause some alike issues.
I changed the name of ice dryad's texture file to match another model file which was found an orignal one.

jjferigura 03-01-2019 10:21 AM

i enjoy playing this game... everytime i feel so tired this is the game that i wana play.. :D tnx for this mod :D

raknefne 03-01-2019 06:35 PM

An installation question: You write in your first post that the LOCATION directory from Orcs on the marsh should be copied into HUNTIRO directory. Didn't you make any changes in the shops? I recall you wrote something about u did...
or did u mean copy the LOCATION files from a Huntiro mod ?

Impossible level: E-hm, I might have been carried a little away when saying 230% for impossible... it is a big gab down to 150% on hard... perhaps something like 100% - 140% - 170% - 200% and keep all other stats the same for hard and impossible, this way the player can choose an ultra impossible or just impossible game. Or if you insist, 100 - 140 - 170 - 230%

Enemy: Just a thought; Could be interesting with some of the new creatures from WotN and Darkside in enemy armies... the races that already exist will have the new ones except if the armies have stated exactly which one instead of just level 3 neutrals for instance. The Necro LIz, Vikings and Ice Elves which is new races will not occure.

I'm up for a playthru now. Game crashes when starting a new game (after choosing hero class)... first I didn't have the directory LOCATIONs in Huntiro directory, then I copied LOCATION from ORCS, which is very small... v1.30 worked fine.

You only need to copy and paste the nine .stream files in "locations" folder. I will check the reason why game crashes when starting a new game.

raknefne 03-02-2019 08:00 AM

Info for crash: My first try was with the 9 location files. I started a game as Warrior.

A duplicated spell effect in two different files is responsible for the crash. Please delete these lines in file "qlmod.txt":
"

I changed the name of ice dryad's texture file to match another model file which was found an orignal one.

Thanks for the answer. What I mean is, some parts of models are wider than what you see. For example, the butterflies for the dryad are squares. But a part is transparent.
If you open the dryad texture file and turn the alpha channel to be totally white, you will see what I am talking about. I have learnt a few things about transparency when playing with Oblivion and Skyrim models:
- first, the transparency has to be enabled on the model itself. This is something that has to be done with the proper model editor
- second, the transparency level (from invisible to totally opaque) is set on the alpha channel of the texture

But there seem to be an other parameter in KB. For example, when I worked on my mod "Amelie fairy princess", just copying the model removes the transparency. Strangely, the wings weren't affected

The vampiress from DS could make a nice ghost lady if I can add transparency to the model, but it is out of the range of what a simple text editor can do. Lariel as well could make a great new unit but even if her skeleton is the same as the other elves archers, the nodes names aren't the same, so it doesn't work :(

- I did this in my old 1.31 download and it now works fine. I have started a new game on impossible with a mage, just to check out the 230% - I did check logic.txt and it says "2.2" which is 220% btw.

- Looks very interesting with your skill enhancements, for instance PRAYER in the paladin skill tree. Also the mage skills looks cool. I like the Neatness which is a combo of crystal reduction skill as before with WotN's neatness when destroying items. Good work!

- The paladin/warrior shift with leadership when leveling up, good idea! paladin should be stronger compared to vanilla imo (I might use that for my own TRENT mod too...)

- I'm not an expert impossible player, never played NO-loss, but have played a lot.

- I found an enemy army early on with vikings in it, must be an army with random between all races... I have been to the first 4 islands before any fight besides turtorial and the academy...

- Wonder if the paladin skill that gives extra att/def against demons and undead also should include Necro Lizardmen? That would make sence.

I'll start a new hero with an easier impossible level. Maybe 190% - after all I'm not an expert player and this is a new mod. I did find Royal Griff on a boat in bola before any fights btw. It had both Polar bear and Royal Griffin...

I changed this in logic.txt, so stats for HARD and IMPOSSIBLE are same except 170% and 190%, for instance rage/mana etc. Perhaps it should be exp=1.2|1.5|1.70|1.9 since most players know this game a lot and not playing normal easy/normal anymore (you would have to change alead accordingly too).

Really nice additions !

I have noticed few bugs :

-Enemy hero cast only one spell at turn 1 and never again after
-Sleeping ray of evil beholder don't work

saroumana 05-18-2019 08:56 PM

Found !

Here the correction

But i wonder if the gog version is not the good one. Here, we don't have any new music and some other files are missing.


old post :I can't find in lua file why AI hero cast spell only the first turn, and no more after. Anyone have an idea about this ?

Thanks. These 2 bugs have been fixed in new version.

Edit: About the new music, you can extract file "playlists.txt" in "huntiro.kfs" to "(Game Folder)\data\"

If you open the dryad texture file and turn the alpha channel to be totally white, you will see what I am talking about. I have learnt a few things about transparency when playing with Oblivion and Skyrim models:
- first, the transparency has to be enabled on the model itself. This is something that has to be done with the proper model editor
- second, the transparency level (from invisible to totally opaque) is set on the alpha channel of the texture

But there seem to be an other parameter in KB. For example, when I worked on my mod "Amelie fairy princess", just copying the model removes the transparency. Strangely, the wings weren't affected

The vampiress from DS could make a nice ghost lady if I can add transparency to the model, but it is out of the range of what a simple text editor can do. Lariel as well could make a great new unit but even if her skeleton is the same as the other elves archers, the nodes names aren't the same, so it doesn't work :(


Edit: Perhaps you forget to register the .dds file in file "textures.sub" ?

In addition there is a parameter indeed that affects the transparency of units.

You can try this:
1.Open a "atom" file. For example, "pirat_ghost.atom"
2.Let's see:

"
main {
class=chesspiece
model=pirat_ghost.bma
cullcat=0
blend=0.6 ---This is the parameter for transparency
spawnscale=0.95
}
"
3.You can edit the value(0-1). If there is none, add it.

Hope it will help.

I'm back, raknefne!

I have beaten the impossible level with Warrior and Paladin! But not Mage, the last Boss fight is perhaps too hard for Mage I think.

I'm working on adding maps from WotN and Darkside these days and now the Riftlands is nearly done.

And by the way, please feel free to use my mod if you like.

saroumana 05-21-2019 07:37 PM

The new patch sound good, but the download link trigger a security alert from Malwarebyte.

Thank you.

Imo, it's the best mod for Crossworld.

saroumana 05-28-2019 08:27 AM

-Academy in Elon don't have enough unit stock.
-with new unit and new item, you should increase shop slot for both and also increase quantity, many are lacking.
-new music don'ttrigger.
-ent and anciant ent regen without dryad.
-metamorph make game crash ( got an error with atom ").
-thread of life can't be dispelled.
-axe of the elements is missing in Montero.
-there are 4 beholders now, but no items for them, may be a good idea. Also, what about to add them to the archmage skill ?

raknefne 05-29-2019 07:21 PM

About missing new music which I can see you have added: You have to add the music also in each map and arenas to make it work. In properties, I think it is.

Spells: There're a lot of new ones, even in Crossworld some are too strong, some too weak. In Darkside some are very OP, also Ice Crystals from WotN. Perhaps have a look of them? You can maybe use the spell changes from 'Expensive', 'Trent', 'Darkside balance mod' - we have balanced a lot of the spells. Something??? Spells are easy to balance, its just spells.txt in most cases.

saroumana 06-02-2019 04:57 PM

Thank you for your advice.

-new music don'ttrigger. I didn't learn that file "playlists.txt" needs to be put in "game folder\data" when this version was released. Please try to unzip the file to the path.

-ent and anciant ent regen without dryad. All plants now regenerate each turn. The ents regenerate more when allied dryad exits.

-metamorph make game crash ( got an error with atom ").
It's related to the AI and I can't figue out the reason now. Please open "clown.atom" and change the name of "transform" attack to "transform2" or something else to avoid the crash.

-thread of life can't be dispelled. Some effects can't be dispelled.

-axe of the elements is missing in Montero. It was missing in earlier version and later I fixed it but you need to start a new game to apply the fix or you can use the command to add specific item: press "shift" + "~" and type "item king_axe_d00" after you load a save.

-there are 4 beholders now, but no items for them, may be a good idea. Also, what about to add them to the archmage skill ? I will consider it. IMO "Evil beholder" and "Gorgon" are very powerful units and they benefit from the "Quick Draw" skill. "Dread Eye" is undead so.

I found some files need to be put into folder "game path\data" to take effect.
Like "playlists.txt" and "textures.sub". It's strange.

About spells, I totally agree with you that some spells are OP like "phantom" and many are weak. I have balanced a few spells and will check the mods you mentioned.

Well may be, i haven't noticed. But Thread of life is both annoying and powerfull (the duration is pretty long) , it should not be immunised to dispell.

They are not bad unit, just for making them used more. Item because we got a familly now, could be fun to have a full beholder party.

A file is probably missing. I have gathered everyfile called clown of your previous version and the metamorph don't crash the game anymore.

raknefne 06-12-2019 07:09 PM

Having a game with Warrior on Impossible with verison Halfmoon 1.3, but:

1. Pegasus Maiden is OP: The talent 'Gift' with 2 charges that gives extra charge on allied talents, for instance Paladins etc is very very strong. I have an army with Inquisitor, Warrior Maiden, Pegaus Maiden and Polar Bears; I can give Warrior Maiden extra gift so it can resurrect, seems very strong.

2. Warrior Maiden's talent North Adjudgement doesnt seem to work (ice shell on enemy).

3. Hunter (orc race): is it normal when he casts talent 'pet' 2nd time, that he can cast untop of existing summoned pet? He can't cast other places, I think I recall it would summon a new stack of pet and erase old one if it was on the battlefield.

4. txt info bottom screen about hunter's pet, text bug: [cpn_hunter_pet] NF

5. on mountain in Debir I found a map scroll that said something like 'n> ice_prison', but didnt get any scroll, could it be that it is the Iceprison scroll from Rune Magic in WotN that is bugged? I didnt have any scrolls in spell book afterwards neither in normal scrolls or the strong scrolls (forgot name, like Titans Armor etc). I'm not sure of the first 'n>' couldnt really read the strange text, only 'ice_prison'.

6. Warrior skill to the bottom left is unclear what it gives: Says at lvl1 it gives 10% chance of double damage, how much crit etc does it give, the same ? Anyway, it sounds OP.... if so then maybe halved in bonus...

Thank you for your feedback.
I have updated my mod.


1. Pegasus Maiden is OP: The talent 'Gift' with 2 charges that gives extra charge on allied talents, for instance Paladins etc is very very strong. I have an army with Inquisitor, Warrior Maiden, Pegaus Maiden and Polar Bears; I can give Warrior Maiden extra gift so it can resurrect, seems very strong.

--Talent 'Gift' now no longer reloads talents, only gives charges.
I think it's OK with Pegasus Maiden herself, but OP when combined with spell "Phantom", so I nerfed them.


2. Warrior Maiden's talent North Adjudgement doesnt seem to work (ice shell on enemy).

--I've no ideas what happened but when I tested it works:confused:.

3. Hunter (orc race): is it normal when he casts talent 'pet' 2nd time, that he can cast untop of existing summoned pet? He can't cast other places, I think I recall it would summon a new stack of pet and erase old one if it was on the battlefield.

--Orc Hunter can only sommon one stack in KBWN, I like that setting and applied it in my mod:-P.

4. txt info bottom screen about hunter's pet, text bug: [cpn_hunter_pet] NF

--fixed

5. on mountain in Debir I found a map scroll that said something like 'n> ice_prison', but didnt get any scroll, could it be that it is the Iceprison scroll from Rune Magic in WotN that is bugged? I didnt have any scrolls in spell book afterwards neither in normal scrolls or the strong scrolls (forgot name, like Titans Armor etc).

--fixed

6. Warrior skill to the bottom left is unclear what it gives: Says at lvl1 it gives 10% chance of double damage, how much crit etc does it give, the same ? Anyway, it sounds OP.... if so then maybe halved in bonus...

--When a crit and the skill are triggered at the same time, then that crit deals crit*2 damage.

Elektra 02-07-2020 07:44 PM

My compliments to this mod, also very nicely done! such a wide range of possibilities now. love it. just started but seems like this new unit metamorph can result in interesting combis...

zelurker 03-01-2020 04:46 PM

1st congratulations for the mod, good idea, and it gave me an excuse to reinstall kb.
Now a bug :
arriving on scarlet island, one of the 1st fights, there is a fire elemental troop with the enemies and when its turn starts I get "can't use "obj" function set" in a dialog box, I click ok, and everything is frozen. I can't be 100% sure it's the fire elemental since it does absolutely nothing but if I am not mistaken he should act at this precise moment...

On the balance : not bad, more powerful enemies early on but my dragon pet has a powerful ability early on too, so it balances things.
I tried to install this in a real "kb armored princess" version, not crossroads, and it kind of works by the way. It's like the vanilla quest, no orc anywhere, but there are some slight changes, like the pirate ship on the 1st iland which is not there in armored princess original game. But I didn't get the updated army when starting the game (no viking !), so I guess the mod is mostly broken in armored princess, which was to be expected. After testing this, I reinstalled crossroads and restarted...

FenrisWolfBrood 06-11-2020 05:32 PM

Malevolent
 
Great mod, can't imagine playing without it at this point.


One issue I encountered:

Trolls Malevolent ability does not seem to work. (The one that gives them +5 att everytime a unit dies)

saroumana 06-30-2020 10:14 AM

The mod was updated, nice !

I'm not sure if it intented but my ancient phoenix don't really rise in power when i increase nor the summoner skill neither intelligence.

I have uploaded a hotfix to fix some reported bugs. By the way, the race of insectoid units has been restored.

I can't reproduce the bug you mentioned at the moment,
and I have tweaked the difficulty so the enemies early on are less powerful now.

Your mod is SUPER, zhoudaohan! A gem!
Far better and balanced than the original games, that I've played since 2010.

I've found only a few "bugs" (maybe you wanted this! but I don't know..):
1) When the Cyclop hit back a unit, 2 cells back, if there is a trap in the first cell, the unit doesn't activate the trap
2) Veteran Orcs: when they use their second ability, the extra damage (150%) is not activated for them, but only for other orcs units.

I have only one question: how can you edit the "orc recruiter" and "goblin recruiter" abilities? I cannot find them! And in the vanilla game I think they have some bugs.

Wonderful work. Thank you!

Thank you for fixing the small bugs, zhoudaohan!

I have a BIG question for you: do you think it's possibile make a mod for battles "Player vs Player"?

I think it should be one of the best KB:C mods of all time, because the game is too much long and repetitive, for hardcore gamers. But a match with real people and real intelligence... wow!

I wonder why devs didn't allow in the original games.
Thank you!

Why doesn't the game recognize my save files for Huntiro anymore? I did play a bit of Crossworlds after playing Huntiro though, and I didn't the save files are still there.

Edit: Solved.

I have a BIG question for you: do you think it's possibile make a mod for battles "Player vs Player"?

I think it should be one of the best KB:C mods of all time, because the game is too much long and repetitive, for hardcore gamers. But a match with real people and real intelligence... wow!

I wonder why devs didn't allow in the original games.
Thank you!


Yeah, it's a shame that KBCW is single-player only.
Sadly, I think it is impossible to make such kind of mod without access to the source code.

There is a KB multiplayer game King's Bounty: Legions there, although I have never tried it.

Yes, I understand... but...
maybe with an improved version of "Hypnosys", maybe you can "simulate" a "player vs player" battle?

Modding "Defender of the crown" or "Champion of the arena"?

I'd like to learn how to do, but I think it's too much complicated!
Your work is really super. Really.

PS.I've noticed a bug with Red Dragon vs Gremlin Tower: the base attack sometimes doesn't hit the tower.

PPS. How can I modify the "labels" of the items? Thank you!

Since dragon bugs were mentioned, I noticed that my Green Dragons will suddenly deal 24k-68k critical hit damage from time to time, which is times more than it should deal (it's sometimes dealt as non-critical damage too).

Edit: Oh, it's the Summoned Despiser thing.

Space Knight 10-23-2020 02:50 PM

Btw, where are the Horde and Vengeful abilities decided? I tried to port Vengeful Gorguls, but those two don't seem to work, and creatures like Graywolf and Viking Warrior already have them. And yes, I looked into their .atom files, but found nothing relevant yet.

Edit: Just found the horde, next is Vengeful. :D Still trying to get them to work though.

Edit 2: Wow, looks like both of them don't even work in WotN Ice and Fire to begin with. Any fix ideas?

Edit 3: I made Horde work correctly, Vengeful not so much (it doesn't work for Viking Warriors at least, btw).

Edit 4: I managed to correctly port Necro Lizardmen, Dwarves, Snow Elves (with Sorcerer's "Snow Elf" ability as well as Hardening and Snowstorm), Contemplators and Gorgons (with "Master of Snakes"'s exception). How could I port the certain abilities and talents I failed to port? Yotun's Greed and Boldness don't seem to work either (nor can I locate them).

There are many script changes between KBAP and KBWN.

I.Ability "Vengeful": ("Master of Snakes" can also work this way)

Solution a(the way vanilla KBAP took):
You can modify "subturn_modificators" in the .atom file. If you can't find that line, check "barbarian.atom"(vanilla KBAP file) for help.

Solution b(the way KBWN and my mod took):
You can modify "subturns.lua".

If you are making your own mod, then you should first partly rewrite "on_round_start()" script in "arena.lua" and add "on_battle_start_pretactics()" in "addon_arena.lua" from KBWN then port "common_subturn_refresh()" in "subturns.lua" from KBWN.
The purpose is to spawn the atom "subturn_handler" at the beginning of combat which manages all the "subturn_modificators".


II:Yotun's "Greed":
Modify "on_knockout()" in "arena.lua".


III:Yotun's "Boldness":
Check "unit_features_on_krit()" in "addon_arena.lua" from KBWN-ice and fire.
Some additions of scripts which trigger specific abilities when a critical hit is rolled are needed. The related script is "apply_damage()" in "arena.lua".

When I tried to mod this game first time, I knew nothing about programming.
It's a bit complicated, but not that much. You need the right tools like notepad++ to edit the scripts. A software which can compare different folders and files is also suggested.

As far as I know, it's still impossible to simulate a "player vs player" battle.
Will check the Red Dragon and I don't know what's your "labels" exactly mean.

Space Knight 10-29-2020 02:53 PM

Wow, thanks for the in-depth guide! Also, I just finished playing with your mod yesterday, no-loss impossible with Paladin and dragon army (+Runemages and/or Tirex). The game was harder than the original (which is welcome), and the Emerald Green Dragons' Summon Despiser came in really handy in Sheterra especially. I did have to change to just a single stack of Paladins for the last battle though, Baal really kills a lot of dragons and Runemages with his attacks, too many to keep up with the Resurrection.

clim77 11-02-2020 04:34 PM

The new unit "Weaver" is really a great idea... :-)

Space Knight 11-02-2020 05:02 PM

Yup, I agree.

wow, Emerald Green Dragons against the gating demons, good idea:)
Baal is a "real" demon now, his cold resistance is -25% and the spell "Demon Slayer" can make our troops hit him harder. Perhaps ghosts are another considerable choice, yeah, with the new item "Clot of Darkness". I will try it in my next run.

It is one of my favorite units. Together with Chosha and thorns, there is so much fun.

Version Bitter Moon stable r2 is released.

saroumana 11-22-2020 09:13 AM

Great to see the mod updated !

With increased number of item, spell and creatures, it's harder to get the composition we would like to make.
Specially most of viking spell are not great to use but over abundant. On the other hand, trying to make a viking army is often impossible.

The actual best way the mod is to rework shop to increase slot and diversity for both creatures and items.

zhoudaohan 01-13-2021 06:58 PM

I like the kind of strategy based on certain randomness. If we can own most of the units/spells/items all the time, then there will be somewhat a (fixed)best build/solution, which will lower the fun in the long run imo.

Elektra 01-18-2021 10:07 PM

I would agree with zhoudaohan; the randomness is a critical element to the fun and playability. Man, you did an amazing job and having a blast! Very nice tweaks and additions. Even started to use methamorph which is really fun.

Perhaps 2 small items on the wishlist - Red Sands had a separate dragon item slot, which was cool (I understand, it's just an extra item, still nice touch). Also, I like the idea to have medals to 5 levels (needed) so that they remain interesting for longer. Tried to do this but fail (added text in 'medals'. Also needs hints updated perhaps?).

So cool that this old game still gets love and players active, chapeaux!

saroumana 01-20-2021 08:00 PM

Randomness is a critical element, no one contest.
But with the amplitude of Vanilla.

With more unit, more item and more spell and exact same number of slot in shop, the game because to random.
Specially we can't acheive synergie inside races or combo (+item synergie with unit).

But the worst is the run are too similar. Most of units slot are set. When they are not strictly set, the choice is limited and between the same race. We'll be able to make an army of elf when we'll arrive on elf's island, same for demon...ect.
It's a default of original game, great for flavour, but so many year (and run) after i found it become a default.

Verysad 01-26-2021 09:55 AM

"Bitter Moon stable r2" is the first version of your mod I have played and I have to say it was a blast. I loved every minute of it. In fact I liked it so much that I played not one but three impossible no loss runs since then.

I played one game of warrior, one game of mage and finally one game of paladin. The armies I used were respectively demon (demonologists, succubi, demons, demon eyes/blood priestesses and archdemons) for warrior, mages (rune mage, archmage, inquisitor, royal griffin/green dragon/black dragon, soothsayer) for mage and paladin+dwarves (alchemist, engineer, paladin, cannoneer, giant) for paladin.

All of the above proved to be viable to clear almost all content, although for warrior (because demon resurrection abilities were a bit iffy) I had to resort to playing a stack of archdemons with stone skin and vampirism to beat some of the toughest opponents. Fights like Ktahu and Gremlion I had to bring Green Dragons in as I lacked the means to keep mana up (and had no magic resist items apart from the diploma for the latter).

The other classes were a little bit easier to stick with main armies as they offered a lot of resurrection through high intellect life light for mage (and rune mage/inquisitor mana+rage batteries) and paladin coupled with turn back time.

Of course it is subjective, but I would say warrior>paladin>mage. I am pretty confident warrior can play many strategies, while paladin probably has to build around a strong resurrection creature (like the paladins). As for mage he struggles to play effectively with most armies until getting life light. After that it's smooth sailing until the very end game.

There are a few bugs I discovered:
- trigger (the companion) is bugged, in companion.txt there is no line break (enter) between belligerent=ally and unit filter line making him not give crit at all, adding an enter between those lines solves it
- the reward from master neotar is missing - the lines for the last crossbow are still here, but the crossbow doesn't appear (may be connected to me buying all the other items from the shop before completing the quest?)
- rakush quest to kill the frog is bugged and the dialog option to return the quest is missing
- troops of the same race bonus seems to not work for demons; maybe some requirements should be made more lenient? (count droids as dwarves, demonologists and demon eyes as demons etc.)

Other thoughts:
- Green Dragons mana drain seems a bit too strong when targetting summoned creatures (mostly refills your entire mana), although some of the late game bosses may be unbeatable at impossible no loss with bad item randomness without green dragons
- Eye of the Storm (lowers the speed of soaring and flying creatures) is an extremely strong artifact that has changed my entire playthrough as a mage
- Demon Eyes are extremely weak and I was happy to change them to Blood Priestesses as soon as I was able, the ability to consume fire is counterproductive and their overall stats are lackluster compared to other Beholders, maybe they could function on some kind of adrenaline-like basis, so that they don't start at 0 flame every time
- Demons, Dwarves and Humans are great overall, I would like to try beasts and Vikings at some point as they also seem very nice, I'd say elves are a bit lackluster and the Undead are by far the worst race, both for amelie's army and as opponents, they have poor stats, proc holy anger, are difficult to resurrect and immune to vampirism. Having neutral morale is also very problematic as positive morale boosts creatures a lot. Nameless Island is the easiest one to clear.
- New items are great and seem interesting and well balanced, although it may be difficult to complete item sets with the same amount of shops/enemies as Vanilla and way more items/content

Elektra 01-27-2021 06:17 AM

Ok I see what you mean then. A slight increase in available units should balance this.

What sort of units are you guys having fun with? What's the overall army you play with?

I am having fun with fireflies (multiply) archmage and some other humans.
