If an NCF creature is properly added to the game, it can be added to a dwelling, but map will immediately become incompatible with non-NCF exe files (and any other PC, unless they have exactly same setup as yours).

Well I guess that's not a problem. After all, if anyone is interested in having dwellings for NCF creatures then he/she must be interested in NCF Megapack. Moreover MMH5.5 Mod is a very nice mod and within a year, it will be much more better and user-friendly.

What you say is nice and we can look into it when the NCF gets more mature but for now it will stay in the wish list.

Hi. Does anyone knows how to change Foul Hydra Acid Blood ability? I want to enhance it because it seems to me very weak and always prefer the second option - deep hydra with regeneration but these two creatures needs to be more equalized. There is one file in the GameMechanics named AcidBlood and at the end of the pages there are two lines that seems to be changable: <DamageToMainTargetCoefficient>1</DamageToMainTargetCoefficient>
<DamageToOtherTargetsCoefficient>1</DamageToOtherTargetsCoefficient>

But whatever value I put nothing change in the game, even I put 0 and I tried dozens of options. I have had no problems to correct any other skills and abilities or spells until now. Every new adjustments work fine exept this ability. What to do?

Acid Blood and Six Headed Attack are both pattern attacks and maybe there are some conflict between them so one work and the other refuse. Because when I set Hydra's Six Headed Attack value to 2 she increase her attack significantly. But when I put 2 in Acid Blood nothing happens. And this ability is very patethic, when 90 blood maidens hit 14 Foul Hydras only 2 die from acid blood. Anyway I will think about to add one additional abillity to this hydra.

Interesting. Keep us updated on your findings. What happens if you set the acid hydra value to 100? may be it gets divided by the number of hexes the hydra hits?

The Acid hydra says it deals 25% of the hydra stack damage can you confirm what it is the actual %?

This is interesting. How about testing acid blood to other creature, without splash attack?

I made hundreds tests, all possible combinations I thought changing value from -20 to 1000 changing rotation and damage to all but nothing. Also deleted six headed attack from the hydra abilities. The results are always the same and now I'm pretty sure that it's not pattern conflict and maybe this ability is hardcoded although I have never seen unchangeable ability until now. But I'm firmly convinced that this 25% acid damage of the hydra stack damage are absolutely accurate. Unfortunately I can't raise it in the file, the only way is to raise hydra base attack which is not an option.
Also I tested acid blood to other creature without splash attack. I put this ability into 90 blood maidens and attack them with 90 blood furies. Whatever value I put in the file, the received damage is always 25% of their attack.
There is one line in DefaultStats:
<AcidicHydraPattern href="/GameMechanics/Creature/Creatures/Dungeon/AcidBlood.xdb#xpointer(/PatternAttack)"/>

If I succeed to change it somehow things will be better but I don't know how.

Core damage parameter & window settings

1. What is the core/global damage modifier called, and where is it located?  I.e. changes the base damage (up or down) for every unit in the game.

2. How do I change the window settings in game?  Distance I can pull back and maximum/minimum angles of elevation.  I'd like to be able to get either a broader or higher view than I currently can.

Creature base damage values can be found and edited in <game folder>/data/data.pak
Unzip it and go to: gamemechanics/creature/creatures/

There you will see a folder list of all factions that includes their own creatures. Each creature is a *.xdb file that has all its stats inside.

Open <game folder>/profiles/autoexec_a2.cfg with a text editor.
Inside you will find something like this:

Quote:
//For transparanet interface
//mission_camera_limits 50 10 70 -55 -30 0 0
//mission_camera_softlimits 50 11 69 -53 -32 0 0

//For solid interface
//mission_camera_limits 50 49.9 50.1 -45.5 -45.5 0 0
//mission_camera_softlimits 50 49.9 50.1 -45.5 -45.5 0 0

//No camera limits
mission_camera_limits 50 -100 1000 -100 100 0 0
mission_camera_softlimits 50 -100 1000 -100 100 0 0


//No camera custom
//mission_camera_limits 50 0 95 -100 100 0 0
//mission_camera_softlimits 50 0 100 -50 100 0 0



The one I have marked is currently the active camera settings.
You can comment it and add your own.  I do not recall what each number was doing but experiment with the numbers and you will find out.

Appreciate #2...

I just would have sworn seeing talk in that huge 5.5 thread about a GLOBAL variable that would affect damage across all creatures in one shot.  Twiddling each creature would take hours.

I see now. What are you looking is how Attack and Defense stats optimize the damage.

In defaultstats.xdb look for the following:

<DamageIncrease>0.05</DamageIncrease>    <- damage increase per point of attack difference
<DamageIncreaseCap>3</DamageIncreaseCap> <- max damage increase
<DamageDecrease>0.05</DamageDecrease>  <- damage decrease per point of defense difference
<DamageDecreaseCap>0.1</DamageDecreaseCap>  <- max damage decrease

0.05 means 5% bonus damage per point of attack higher than the defense stat of the defender. Same goes the other way around.

In TotE 3.1 these Caps don't work.
In MMH5.5 I have not tested it.

hey guys. You helped me a lot till now. But there is one thing I could need your help with:

So I actually found all stuff and can i change it so that some heroes change their specs and their starting skills. For example i gave the Necropolis hereo who just buffs zombies Markals specs that all necro creatures will join and the look from necro nikolai....(moreover he start with absolute fear ..... so yeah he is completly broken right now but who cares as long as i play singleplayer
but i cant find kunyak for example.... he and the dungeon hereo from the scenarios seem to appear in a different folder. Does someone know where i can find this folder?

I use 5.5 and there is a Kunyak.xdb in the MMH55-Data.pak.  Under mapobjects/stronghold folder.  If you don't have 5.5.  I would unpack data.pak and do a search for text inside files.  Look for Stronghold_Kuynak (the name is spelled different inside file).  Or search for file called Kunyak.xdb.
