picked up my Heroes 5 again just now thinking it might be fun to go in and give it another try.

emediatly i got annoyed by the layout and the invert mouse on the paning/rotating function..

is there a mod available that makes the ayout look more like Heroes 3 with a sidebar instead of the round menu thingy? and fixes the invert mouse?

edit: i do not mean the invert mouse checkbox since that also turns off the rotation. i want to be able to pan/rotate the map but without invert mouse.

Some modding questions

I need to do this effects (on H5 version 1.6):

1) Change computer hero's Flee (since I'm always playing on Heroic, amost all computer hero's always Flee - very boring to play, and too easy). Computer often flees even when he has much more powerful army than I have:
http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/1851065692/m/3991082628

I need to change it so that he could do as much damage as he can before fleeing.
If that's a problem then at least I want know how to change it so that he NEVER flees (I don't think that it would be a problem).


2) Change Witch Huts so that it will ALWAYS give you something useful.
Now Witch Huts gives only standard subskills/abilities (like Master of Mind):
http://www.celestialheavens.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=289509#289509

I need to change it so that it would give also special subskills/abilities (like Weakening Strike, if you have prerequisites)

And if your slots are full then it should give some random primary skill.

Is that possible?


3) Give Master Gremlin ulimited repair.


4) Hard question:
- is it possible to give more than 6 skills to hero?
(and more than 3 subskills)

3) dans le fichier de stats du gremlin, y'a 3 lignes pour le nombre de points de mana. la 1ere c'est pour lancer les sorts, la 2eme c'est pour les capacités activables, la 3eme c'est pour le déphasage.

pour des capacités activables infinies, parfois il suffit de mettre 0. sinon, un nombre très grand, genre 99.

haha Fauch, pourquoi tu parles en français?

aller je me lance:

2), non c'est impossible, les compétences du héros sont choisie
aléatoirement par le fichier exécutable. on n'a pas non plus le moyen de choisir
une compétentence particulière et encore moins des capacités.
en outre, il suffit d'ouvrir l'éditeur, placer une hutte de sorcière
dans la carte et aller dans sa fenêtre de propriétés pour constater qu'il n'y a rien que
l'on puisse modifier pour cet objet. donc en résumé on peut strictement rien faire
avec une hutte de sorcière.

4) non totalement impossible à moins de changer le fichier exe et plusieurs autres fichier tel « types.xml ».

oups.

in the stats file of the gremlin, I think it's the line
<spellpoints2> or something like that.

put a very high value for (apparently) infinite repairs.
sometimes, putting 0 works too.

Thanks for answer.

Just compared two files:

1)
data.pak\GameMechanics\Creature\Creatures\Academy\Master_Gremlin.xdb

2)
p3c-data.pak\GameMechanics\Creature\Creatures\Academy\Master_Gremlin.xdb

and I found only two differences:

1)
<SpellPoints1>0</SpellPoints1>

2)
<SpellPoints1>1</SpellPoints1>
and additional line (at the end, before </Creature> ):
<Range>-2</Range>

Anybody knows what is the meaning of <Range>-2</Range> ?

===========================
Robertukas:

2) it's impossible to mod Witch Huts...their skills are randomly chosen by the EXE.
so, nothing may be done about them especially for perks..

4) it's impossible again. to add more skills/perks, the EXE must be changed and
others files too as « types.xml »

very easy, that is the strenght of the shots....
that takes 3 value: 0, -1, 2 ... ex: Licorn's bow gives 0 at all shooters...
-1, -2 ....makes the "broken" arrows during fight when the mouse moves on ennemy...
you understand?

0  : no range penalilty for shooters...
-1 : range penality
-2 : big range penality

Thanks.

Range penalty = half damage

What does "Big range penalty" mean?
Maybe it means 25% of damage?
Or twice shorter range for full damage?

I said big...but yes the formula is

range  0 = 100% damage
range -1 = 50% damage
range -2 = 25% damage

in fact, the range is an exponent of base 2:

damage = damage * 2^(range)

0 : 100% damage at any range (crossbowman, arcane archer, mage, archmage, battlemage)


-1 : 100% damage at close range, 50% at long range

-2 : 50 % damage at close range, 25% at long range (scout, assassin, bloodeyed cyclop, untamed cyclop)

thanks for your detail about close range....even if that it's pratically self-evident

melee attack on long range makes 0% damage.

First, Sorry for my English.

I need to edit some heroes specializations but I don't know where are the files responsible for specializations.

EDIT:
I found this in GameMechanics\RPGStats\DefaultStats.xdb and some heroes files in MapObjects but I want to create new specialization.


Could you help me?

You cant create new especializations,but you can create new "false" especializations for example you can create an especialization like "this hero begins with advanced sorcery" and you add the hero advanced sorcery but you must do this in the specialization lines in the specifical hero.

More than 6 skills?

Yes it is possible but the game is very likely to crash.
I managed to put 7 skills on my hero but the second I went into a fight the game crashed.
I did it a long time ago and can't remember fully how to do it.

there may be a problem with upgrades and pair creatures.

I think it's something like :

zombi's upgrade are plague zombi and rot zombi

plague zombi's pair creature is rot zombi

rot zombi's pair creature is plague zombi

paircreature is a dead tag, basecreature is the good.

Monstershared.....

the best to swap is never to edit Monstershared. only the visual.

moreover, never editing base/upgrade tag when swapping.
creature_id are unswappable else the game core will be altered.
