No Winrar, 7zip. Strange, anyway I got them now.

I will inspect later, but for the future the files that are actually helpful to me are the ones in /Packs/SoD_SP/debug. Now I can't see which part of code was responsible, can only guess or try to reproduce it.

EDIT
Welp, my version of 7zip was dated apparently. Should be fine in the future.

Thanks for bug report, it is now fixed in 1.15b...

1.15b
[ ] Mapmaker-unhireable heroes fix is now optional
[-] Fix a bug when recalculating hero movement after encounter if the owner of the hero was defeated (thanks Lunareon)
[*] German and Greek language corrections (thanks Nikos)

Thanks for the fix.

BTW, the option for Adventure map coordinates and Real Casualties (Elementals) are reversed in .ini and ingame menu. When its disabled in .ini, its enabled in game.

Confirmed, had them switched around in internal key sequence. It will be a part of next version, tyvm.

Multiplayer Icon
It is not coming back. The best I can do is evenly space out the icons in the New Game and Load Game menus.

Chat Icon
It's on the to-do list. I've managed to partially remove it but the resources bar has to be stretched and the date text moved as well.


New/Load Game icons were spaced out evenly in 1.15b.


Chat icon will be gone in 1.16.

RoseKavalier,
so, what about the source code and the possible inclusion of some features of sod_sp in hd-mod?

Here are some of my thoughts on the SoD_SP:

1. I think disabled multiplayer - is a bad design for the plugin.
I would just add a game mode check that would disable the feature in the multiplayer online game and enable it in a single player game.
That's exactly how I do in the HD-mod.
So, if I play both a single player with a SoD_SP, and online multiplayer, I will not have to time to time add and remove the SoD_SP.

2. If I can review the source code of the SoD_SP, or even participate in the development of the SoD_SP, it will have a positive effect on the compatibility  and on the number of bugs.

3. I want to add some SoD_SP features in the HD-mod.
And I want to edit some HD-mod features according to the SoD_SP functionality and vise versa.


What do you say?

Hey bara!

As I had said on HW, I'm certainly willing to do so, whatever you see fit.

I will send you an email @ yandex.


#############################

1.15c

I broke the sod_sp options save feature in 1.15b. (signaled by email)

Links updated.
Also lobby chat icon was removed in this version instead of waiting for 1.16. In the future this will probably be made optional.

Thanks for signaling bugs.

About suggestions - what do you think about adding a fix for the bug that SOD AI resurrects only one skeleton (lich with cloak) with any Necromancy level?

I would not say it is a bug, it is mechanic of original game (as well as WaterWalk/Fly mechanics for AI, for example).

Though it can be fixed of course without big damage of original game.

I thought that since SoD_SP has many features for mapmakers/hardcore maps, this fix could help in creating maps with enemy heroes that are able to use Cloak of the Undead King for example.

Then AI should be intellectual enough to be able do not hide Cloak into backpack for the sake some other powerful artifact...

Yea, this sounds like a coding error / bug. I'll look it up and make it optional.

^Quality of life.
On some single player maps it could ruin hours of work.

There are many ways to improve quality of life, but if it replaces original mechanics... hmmm... For example, one may make one button with label "Victory !". It could save huge number of hours !

It depends what you define as QoL vs gameplay change.

Month of the Plague / Double growth are random events which you can usually deactivate simply by loading your autosave and ending turn again. Many games have options to enable/disable these types of events (Sim City, Civilization); it's not vanilla anymore but I don't see it as a new gameplay mechanic as it's something that could only happen once in a while that is now optional, 10% & 40% every 28 days respectively.

Comparing this to an instant-win button is quite a faulty analogy.

Absolutely, they implemented some randomness to keep the game thrilling in a few areas but the backside is that month of plague prohibits a smart and careful map design, can also screw multiplayer, so should have been made optional.

And btw, simply reloading say 7 is not changing the plague seed, looks to me it is somehow coded at map generation (look at Xiedu or ira the mage prerequisites to get rid of plague)

Simply RoseKavalier approve some game mechanics changes which he likes and refuses other ones which he don't like. In general, it is matter of taste, no further. Changes are always changes.
