Is it possible to change the way spell specialties are calculated to increase the damage relative to the level of the spell instead of the level of the creature it is hitting?

I thought the same way and replaced this horrible unnoticeable in game formula with Luna mechanic:
- Damage and Resurrection spell specialists receive raw 50% boost. Their spells now viable even at higher levels.
- Buff specialization receive double bonus. +6 for Adv. Level Stone Skin, instead of +3, +12 to all creatures defence instead of +6 etc.
Exception is Haste, with +1 bonus.

Played hundreds of hours with those changes, nothing gamebreaking, feels good to actually see the power of Adelaide's Frost Ring or Alagar's Ice Bolt. Especially with modified Sorcery skill (another 50%), since damage spells were a joke at higher levels.

Check my dialog with RoseCavalier at http://heroescommunity.com/viewthread.php3?TID=42152&pagenumber=34 about making these changes, nothing that difficult. And feel free to ask about the details.

I guess not, but would it be possible to give Fortress Mage Guild level 4?

All you need is to change spell probability chance at Spell.txt. The main problem is drawing new 4th floor and seemlesly adding to to Fortress. I have no idea what tool you need for that, but it definetly requires some skill.

Really?, I only need to change the txt file? The visual aspect of Mage Guild 4 is not that important to me, but if they can learn level 4 spells just by changing the text file, I'll go ahead and do that. Should make Fortress and Witches more attractive.

I am not sure, probably I am wrong. Besides spell.txt, building.txt, new image, frame, I guess something need to be changed in .exe to let the game know about it.

I would much prefer being able to change the formula. The bonus has to be inversely proportional to the spell level for damage specialties to be relevant late game.

Wow that is great information, thanks! I thought Bloodlust/Haste/Prayer etc were all bound together and I had no idea how to balance properly. Nice to know that you can tie them to another forumla, works well!

Do you also know if the 50% multiplier can be changed, to e.g. 20%?

I am afraid not, I have zero knowledge about coding and creating plugins. 50% was ideal for me.

Not without a plugin. Bonus damage is applied by reading the base damage into the eax register and shifting it right once. You'd only have 5 bytes to write the desired bonus into the register and that's impossible.

Yes it is but how exactly, sorry I don't know. I suggest instead to change the percentage of bonus it brings to necromancy because this building is needed to upgrade vampires... So if you "delete it" it means "no upgrade for vampire" if you don't change buildings requirements too.

If I'm crazy ? Sure, because its madness to be normal...
