Need guidance to create a mod for removing instant travel?

Hi, I'm new to modding.
I've been trying to figure out how to disable instant travel in game, but without luck. Tried the modding wiki, but I ended up with a wrong file and can't find the right one.

Would really appreciate it if someone could give a simple tutorial on how to do it. Better yet, if there's already a mod out there that does it, perhaps you can direct me to it? Tried searching to no avail.

Thanks!

The easiest way will be to go to the data\GameMechanics\Spell\AdventureSpells\DimensionDoor.xdb and then correct either the level (set it to 6) or the RequiredHeroLevel (set it to 50) - in either case, you're never going to be able to learn it.

Thanks much!
Just a newbie question, I opened the data folder in TOTE and opened both the data.pak and text.pak, but I couldn't find the right file.

In fact, the spells I found in the text.pak were only for Rune magic, and a few dark spells, so I must have gotten the wrong files.

Would really appreciate it if you or someone could guide me to the right folder/file.

Thanks
Peter

The correct path is listed in my post above. You go in the Data file, not the Text file. Then follow the path listed above.

Alas, I'm a bit more daft than expected.

Incidentally, I only have ToTe installed, does that make a difference?

Just to show you what I can see, there are 2 files with the word 'data' in my ToTe folder:

data.pak
a2p1-data.pak (I understand this to be for a patch)
Both these files are in my 'data' folder.

Using CAMunzip to open data.pak (after converting to zip file; it is 1.4GB), I do not see any folder or file called 'GameMechanics'. I do see 3 folders, 'ArenaObjects', 'Arenas','bin' and a number of misc files.

Appreciate if you could tell me what I'm doing wrong.

You don't have to convert ANYTHING. Just open those .paks with WinRar or WinZip (.pak is just a renamed .zip) and follow the path Alc said, find that file and extract it. Do not modify the pak itself!

Then, make sure you create the same path in the data folder, outside the .pak files, and put your extracted file in there. Then you can modify it and disable Instant Travel.

It should look like this (view data.pak)



you shouldn't convert *.pak into *.zip.Maybe that is the problem.

Before making a mod you must create proper folder structure and that means:

Create folder: GameMechanics => inside it Create folder: Spell inside it Create folder: AdventureSpells => inside it copy the DimensionDoor.xdb

Clik with Right Mouse button on this extracted files and uncheck read only.

Here how it looks the file DimensionDoor.xdb:



AS Alcibiades said you must edit "<Level>4</Level>" (change it to 6) or
"<RequiredHeroLevel>15</RequiredHeroLevel>" (change it to 50)

Save the changes.

and after that zip the GameMechanics folder that you have created and copy it GameFolder\UserMODs\ or alternatively copy the GameMechanics folder into GameFolder\data\

By GameFolder i mean the path/place where is your game installed

hope it will help.

Just to clarify, the file is data.pak right? Its about 1.4 gb?

I tried using the original pak file, but I still don't get the folders. Only 3 folders I have are
1. ArenaObjects
2. Arenas
3. bin
And a bunch of misc files.

Tried it with Winzip and Winrar instead but still the same.
Extracted all the files and its still only these 3 folders.
Its almost like I'm playing a different game.

Would it be possible for anyone to just send me that 1 file for instant travel?

Thanks!

Maybe you should scroll down?

Ok, here is the file anyway:

http://rapidshare.com/files/158670034/No_InstantTravel.h5u.html

Place it in UserMODs folder and that's it.

If there's a possibility in that software, sort files by type, not name.
