Just to make it clear, XML has plenty of techniques to split definitions into parts.



I tried a few manual, and also xmlsplit software.  But actually what it does is what I did manually.

Not sure how the binary looks for files in the RPGstats folder but I am still on a failure streak .


Even if it worked the worse part is the syntax of the xml. Everything is  in one big root tree called RPGSTATS and drills down many levels from there. It would have been way easier to split if the structure was flatter.

I doubt it was produced manually. But it was rather a way to make the database moddable.

Of course, you can always create your own files in any format you like and then build a tool that compiles these into the .xdb.

Thank you for the tips. I need to dig deeper into that but will leave it for later stages of development.

Another question, I believe people have asked you many times if adding a new town is possible which I know it is hard has many stuff to be contemplated and so on.

While digging into NCF and working on the Sanctuary mod I got a different perspective for the 9th town implementation that can be a lot easier.

Is it possible to clone an existing town as 9th town?
For example what if Sylvan town could be cloned to a 9th slot ?
Using this as a base later people can modify those towns into a newer ones using the original towns special features (Santuary mod for example).

Thus at the end you have a fully functioning 9th city without boggling too much with the game fundamentals.

I have been working on changing some creature animations like for instance giving the colossus the titan's call lightning animation. But the _(AnimSet) folder doesn't feature all factions, much less all creatures! There is no stronghold or fortress there and academy doesn't have rakshasa rani or others. Where did Nival put those?

Oh, how I hate Nival's way of sorting stuff...

Well, I'm not quite sure, but I think (and it defies any logic, so that makes it a likely spot for Nival employees to save it) at least some Anim_Sets for dwarfs and Orcs are actually under CharactersCreatures and then in the subfolders of the creatures itself.

EDIT: I just checked there and I noticed that the files there do not have an  "Anim_Set" in brackets after the file name, but they are simply named [creature name]-arena.xdb

No way, you're right! Found how to add dash animation to rakshasas and the rest should be easy to find, thanks a lot.

@Quantomas, is it possible to make all infernal NPC creatures on the map to be able to gate on a basic level even without them having a hero without this ability?

Also is it possible to change the gating mastery for those creatures (for example nightmares and pitlords require master gating to be able to do so)?

Forget about the balance thing. I would like to know if it is possible and how to do it, and then it will be tweaked. Cheers.
