@BIGJOCKER:
It is set in <RegradeCostCoef> in GameMechanics/RPGStats/DefaultStats.xdb

@guarder:
Did you update the dates of the files inside the mod? Because it seems like it is the problem.
The issue is explained in the FAQ.

The lightnings around the Titan are done as effects in the animations. You can see in the effects folder how it's done:
Effects\_(Effect)\Characters\Creatures\Academy\Titan
The effect needs skeleton and model information though, so I'd say it's not that easy to reproduce on another character.

For the tank, you can start here:
MapObjects\FestiveMission\PanzerKlein.(AdvMapBuildingShared).xdb

@Lordi:
.xdb files are plain text xml files. You can open and edit them with a text editor (like Notepad, but I advise you to use a better one, with syntax coloring if you can, as it will make it clearer).

Read the tutorials in the modding wiki, it should give you the starting points you're looking for.

A .h5u file is a ZIP archive (not RAR), so if you create it with winrar, make sure you create a ZIP archive. Then, you only need to rename it to .h5u. It works.

That's because your Windows hides the known extensions (like .zip or .rar).

I don't know the english names but open a window, go to the options and files options. On the middle tab, somewhere after the hidden files options, you'll see a line that says something like "Hide known file extensions", uncheck that and validate.
From there, all the extensions will be shown and you can rename them.

Hi,

I'm currently changing the look of the PaoKaï a bit, my objective is to add some lightning effects around his body.

Here is what I managed to do so far :




I'm already happy having done that, but it's not exactly what I wanted to do

A little explanation on what I did first. I used the same effects files as the Foul Wyvern and replaced the toxic cloud effects by lightning effects.

I was wondering 2 things :

1. Is there a way to change the color of the lightnings ? or is the green color linked to the Foul Wyvern ?

2. Is there a way to add lightnings anywhere on the PaoKaï ? for instance on the wings.

No, it isn't linked to the Wyvern.  It's an effect which is applied to the creature's animation.  So it is possible to change the effect's colour (everything in the entire game can be recoloured...)  It's too late for me to bother hunting for the lightning textures, but you can find them by tracing the .xdb files in Effects\_(Effect)\Characters\Creatures\Orcs\T6b_PoisonedWyvern.

I have no idea to be honest, but I think it may be possible if you're patient enough...

@ Lordi: did you activate the map editor maps in the single mission thingy? did you put the holy check beside it?

EDIT: i got a question. where are the icons for the creatures stored? i can't find them anywhere!

@Wulfstan8182:
- H5 Creatures icons: Textures/Interface/CombatArena/Faces/
- HoF: UI/H5A1/Icons/Creatures/
- ToE: UI/H5A2/Icons/Creatures/

@Daystar:
it's hard to answer you with so little details. If you make your mod available, someone can have a look. Otherwise, you'll have to describe more.
