I agree the visual part is a pain in the ass, and the problem isn't exactly the icons but rather re-writing the structure to accommodate it (something I don't know how to do).

That SAID... it's not entirely inconsistent with the game's behavior to be vague in how it reports such things (see how it initially reported unit speed).

What if you create another set of images, so that you could "link" (assuming the code is that simple) the values greater than 3 to their respective images:

Sorry, I have almost 0 experience in hex editing. To tell you the truth, a long time ago, I tinkered with it, but those guides we have here, although resourceful (and I applaud our modders for that), are not very organized, so to speak.

I like this idea very much.
-3 to +6 cap would at least help to make Leadership, Luck, Fortune, Mirth, Misfortune and Sorrow more useful.

Something else I need to mention is that we don't know where Luck is handled; just Morale(*)

(*At least with HotA. In SoD, it's possible that Luck may share the maximum value with Morale. This is something that can be tested by setting the maximum to 24 and jacking up the Luck skill to match.)

Update april 24th 2020:
* Gold and Diamond Golems now have 6 speed. (I did'nt like how they were slower than Iron Golems on native terrain or Steel Golems.)
* Ivor, Kyrre, Jenova, Calh and Wystan has their starting skills returned to normal.
* Resurrection and Animate Dead are now both permanent from Advanced Earth Magic.
* AI Value of Resurrection and Animate Dead changed to 60/60/120/120.
* Magic Elementals are now immune to Fire Shield.
* Gold and Black Dragons are now also immune to Lightning Bolt and Chain Lightning.
* Jeremy is disabled as starting hero, Miriam is available instead.

I'm curious:

What's does the changing of AI value of spells do exactly, as this is area I don't know much about? Did you aim for more random outcomes of battles or does this end up buffing the AI somehow?

The higher AI Value, the more likely AI is to cast those spells.
AI uses mass spells often in my mod, especially Mass Slow, but also offensive spells like Meteor Shower and (buffed) Inferno.
So yeah I would say the AI is more difficult to fight than normally.

Hey, Phoenix... the only reason you changed dragon immunities is because of Resurrect, right? It wasn't because of just being able to buff them in general?

Hey BTB.
Both actually. I thought it was quite unfair that you could'nt ressurect them and if you wanted to, you needed Orb of Vulnerability, which ruins creatures resistances and the Resistance skill.
Gold and Black Dragons were poorly designed imo.
I also hate how some heroes can't use their spell specialties on certain units.
Actually Gold and Black Dragons are no longer Fire Immune, as it also made them immune to enemy Fire Shield and Magogs area attack, which they are not supposed to be immune to.
But they have the Earth/Magma Elemental resistance, so they are immune to Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning and Armaggedon + mind spells.
So most Fire Magic can actually be used with dragons now, which is interesting.

Well, I ask because I just learned where to set the spell ID's checked for elemental weakness and immunity. Would basically give you a Black Dragon that's immune to all spells but could still be Resurrected, if ye want.

@FirePaladin What about them?

@BTB Through hex editing?, I thought that was'nt possible.
That is really cool, but I think that perhaps it would be OP. I think it's good they have some weaknesses too, now that they can be resurrected.
You are of course welcome to post the solution or include it in your guide, maybe someone else can use it.

That's what's with the big guys.

Edit: Oh, a second. Are they Mind Immune now?
