just a warning:

some originals creatures are modified by the Fauch's 3rd alternate upgrades mod...

I know that base skeleton is one of those ones.

perhaps you have this mod in your game.

Nope. Not using this one. But I managed to add all the necropolis changes into one archive and Made it usable for mod enabler! YAY! 30 skeletons\week! Better life steal for vampire lords! More usable manes!
btw. I also added the ethereal dragons edition to it! so thx again!
the only con is that now all the 3rd model images are 1\4 of the size of a normal ones XD but it' doesn't affect gameplay at all.

It has been done ages ago in the first creatures set for NCF, Nelgirith Creatures Pack.

However, ballistas working as neutral creatures have nothing to do with ballista supporting hero during battle.

Ach so even when it will be an neutral creature it won't take advanatges of Heroes special skills

Is there a way to tie and creature balista with hero skills and abilities or make that the hero can have more then one balista

A-hay. Where can I find Inferno heroes skills and abilities .xdbs? To be more specific, let's say I want to mess around with Brimstone Rain's or Swarming Gate's stats (damage, number of shots, or whatever there may be). I have found some editable stats from gamemechanics\RPGstats\DefaultStats.xdb, but I guess they are not there?

What you can edit about those things, you can edit in DefaultStats.xdb. So if it's not there you can't change it.

But Swarming Gate is there, but it is named "CriticalGating"

<CriticalGatingConstantProb> Initial Chance to trigger
<CriticalGatingPerLuckPointProb> Chance increase per Luck point
<CriticalGatingPortionBonus> Number of Reinforcements to multiply when it triggers. It is set to 1 which means double forces (original + original*1)

It is there but many mods change it so any changes to the defaultstats file will result in conflicts.Believe. I know. My pood necromancers can't use their megacool thingie with 1.00% life steal.....because of many mods changing defaultstats....
so try to find a mod with this file changed and edit it inside the mod. yeah, copyright(btw are mods of other people copyrighted?) copyright but this will allow you to add required changes easily. And avoid conflicts.

Yeah I know, changing wrong values can really mess up the game. But since I'm not totally unexperienced modder, I know what to look for the thing is, almost every skill, ability, etc. have different ID name in those files, so I can't simply search the ability name that's used ingame. One solution is to search for example with "demonlord" and see what's inside those elements.

Are the skills and spells (what they actually do) hard coded? Like is there a way to add COMPLETELY new spells or abilities?

fusion the defaultstats files.
after all it's a text document. copy / paste any part of another defaultstats file you need in your own defaulstat file.

Well, that's a good start, but I also kinda figure out by their name and value what skill/ability they represent

Yes, they are Hard Coded unfortunately. We can edit only a few variables they let us through the DefaultStats.xdb

Thanks for your answers!

Now, one major one left. I'm going to use grim riders model in my mod, but the thing is, how can I remove the mounted rider and just have the lizard as my new model? There's a basilisk or something in NCF topic and I tried to browse its files as an example... the thing is, I have no clue in which point the rider has been "dropped off". I guess this is not done by normal alpha channel tweaking.

I also need to mount a certain hero, Raelag for example, to a Stronghold hero's animal ("the giant moo-moo" ) but have no clue how it's done.

Thanks already.

First you need to duplicate everything so the original rider and mount are unaffected.  Then you have to completely wipe the Rider's alpha texture.  That means turn the whole thing transparent.  Then you turn the Raelag model into an effect and attach it to the mount.

But if you're using the Stronghold bull, there's one with no rider available already: its model is named KujinsBull (you know how to change models, I'm sure?).

Ok, I found the bull, that's a start But I have no clue how to turn a model into an effect. Attaching is done normally changing for example KujinsBull-arena-idle00 by adding value /xxxx/xxxx/*this_is_Raelag_as_effect* into the <Effect>?

That's probably the hardest thing in modding to try and explain - I could teach you, but the fastest way is for me to do it, and you can investigate how I did so. Or the Planeswalker NCF creature would be worth studying, since it uses an effect-mount.

You're right. Well, I guess I'll have to search and try how Planeswalker is done.

Easy enough to do (when you know how), but much harder to explain in a text forum

Now that I was able to unmount a rider (Agrael) I think I can find out how one could be added as well (I really want to learn more about how stuff works) but thanks anyways. I'll turn to you, DarkCrystal, if I can't do it.

btw. how does .xdb differ from .xml? the structure is somewhat the same.

No problem, but can you explain exactly what the problem is?
