Well, the fact is that the original objective is to defeat all and Human is allowed to play all 8 players.

Anyway, I'll have a look on it.

Thanks and have a nice day,

Ok, when does the problem show? Can you play all 8 in hotseat mode?

No, it does not show up in multiplayer maps (since it is a scenario)
But if I choose to play it single, I can go with every player.

BTW, I didn't try what you have written (I did not have too much time lately) so it is possible that it works.

Have a nice day.

there's a file in GameMechanics/Spell/Hero_Skills/Feats but I wouldn't expect much. you might just be able to change the element (I could turn magma shield into ice shield)

forget it, might have found better, GameMechanics/Ref_Tables/Skills.xdb

replace that spell by something else.  SPELL_EFFECT_FIRE_SHIELD might work, though, it will probably be overpowered...

Xerox : Most likely in Characters/Creatures/Academy

Thank you. I am recoloring the Academy creatures. Personally, I really think the alternate uppgrades are ugly! Plus I liked the Gremlins more when they had blue/green-skin.

Is it possible to change projectiles (arrows from Archers etc)?
I would like to make the Gremlins shots to look like the Eldritch Bolt spell instead of bullets.

the academy ones don't look bad, the worst ones are probably the necropolis ones.

GameMechanics/CreatureVisual/Creature/Faction/Creature.xdb

look for this line and change the link.

it is also possible to create your own projectile, I think there are some similarities with creating a creature. for example, I created a new projectile for my catapult, it is the normal catapult projectile but with a fireball effect.

Dear modders of HC our VIP representative to Ubisoft concerning the development of H6 Cepheus just posted this
Quote:
I may or may not have heard that we're looking for some redoubled discussions regarding the map editor at this time, specifically any major requests you might have. Not too late to implement your desires

Since some of you here are proficient like no others with the editor in H5 your input concerning this would be most appreciated considering you'll know the problems of the current editor the best and thus can provide the best input. I do hope some of you read this and find the time to post your suggestions and wishes here. You'd not only be helping yourselves for future projects but also people who'll start works of their own with the new editor. So please consider replying.

Hey, what do you guys think is the best way to replace existing creatures for a mod? Change the old creature's CreatureVisual to the new creature or edit the Creatures.xdb file? Or something else?

Hi I was just looking through some old threads, and I came across this post,

Quote:
All right I'll tell you the deal with creating new towns; in the case of creatures you can add as much as you like by increasing the number hard coded in the exe. Before Tote it was hardly useful since one couldn't add abilities. With towns all buildings', except for dwellings, marketplaces and blacksmiths, effects are hard coded in the exe file so in theory one could add a new town, but it'll miss the building effects. Unless someone can decompile the exe this cannot be done that's why we/I decided to use the TOWN_DUNGEON ID for Nexus so that it has the Dungeon town's effects, those are the only ones not specifically linked to creatures of that town (i.e. Bloodrage, Gating, Training etc.)


I wasn't quite sure what it meant, so I was wondering some things. Does this mean that even if the Exe was modified to added towns, that the towns would only be able to have creature dwellings, marketplaces and blacksmiths, meaning no mage guilds, horde buildings and special buildings, or does this mean that they can only already made buildings like mage guilds, blacksmith etc, and can't create a new building with a new racial.

Edit: I would like to start a project to decompile the exe so that I can view the games source code. If anyone has any advice, recommended software, etc, please post.

someone knows how to change town's visuals? I want the stronghold to look like a haven town (but with different textures maybe)
I thought about swapping models files but at the first sight, it doesn't work.

how do I change what spells/spell schools show up in the mage guild? For that matter, how do I change the values for making skills appear, for example giving a necromancer an incredibly likely chance to learn Light Magic.

do someone else ever had problems with invisible effects?
I've checked all the links and paths multiple times and I see no mistake. the model I'm using for the effect is correct and has a texture. but whatever I try, it doesn't appear in game

Hi!

I have some question.

1. How can add script to spells or abilities? I found a directory named Script_Abilities.

2. How can add scripts to heroes like Zefir?

3. How work the spell_ability_custom1? If there are 4 custom abilities how can edit them?

Thanks!

Is there any way besides scripts of course to change the formula of the prismatic breath That's one of the most imbalanced abilities that sometimes completely ruins the whole battles at the beginning.
The random value [1-10] is to high, want to reduce to to [1-5] but i can't find any reference to that ability.
