New Upgrades Mod [Amethyst Edition] for ERA 3

Third upgrade creatures V2.13.1

Requires ERA 3 v3.8.0 or later and ERM Framework

This mod is based on Amethyst Upgrades by majaczek/feanor and improved in Typhon.
I owe many thanks and credit to PerryR for collaborating with the scripts and making this mod go further, he is the co-author of this mod.
Also to Berserker with his "Extended Upgrades" script that he adapted to work with my mod.

In Third Upgrades 2 now core Amethyst is used instead of Typhon, made by feanor and improved by Majaczek.


1. Specials Buildings for Upgrades

Now every town can have a new building that is used as a general 'upgrade guild'. Thanks to this the player will be able to upgrade creatures in the town to their new forms.
Each town type has a different building, a different description, a different animation and a different cost.
To try to build the new building RIGHT-click on your Town Hall (or Village Hall, City Hall, or Capitol).
You have always only one prerequisite to build - you must have a Castle. And of course, you have to have the right resources:

for the Heavenly Tower (Castle)
for the Order of The Sun (Rampart)
for the Cloud Castle (Tower)
for the Kreegans' Gate (Inferno)
for the Hall of The Pit (Necropolis)
for the Underworld Entrance (Dungeon)
for the Barbarian Citadel (Stronghold)
for the Temple of The Snake (Fortress)
for the Escaton's Crystal (Conflux)

Note, that the right-clicking on the town hall doesn't disable the town destroying feature. However, when it is not needed, the standard text will not be shown.
It will 'return' if you build a capitol or destroy the fort - then you'll see the standard text after you click on the 'OK' button. If you completely destroy a town, the new structure will be destroyed as well.

2. Creature Upgrades

The creature upgrades become available in the town after building the new special structure there *and* having the right upgraded dwellings built.
Just click on the creature and you should notice the upgrade arrows. Of course, like with any upgrades, this costs some gold (or even resources).
Note, that in the Hill Fort every  new upgrade is also available and all new upgrades are aligned with their towns.

3. Creature Specialization

Heroes who specialize in creatures have the following scaling:

Attack/Defense: +1 Att/Def for every 7 hero levels
Damage: HeroLvl:Value(based on creature level)
Health: 9%+1*HeroLvL
   
This bonus is added to the creatures only in combat! The normal Heroes3 mechanic (+1 Speed and +Att/Def after each x-level) still works and can be seen directly on your creature in the hero screen.
You will find this scaling much fairer then the busted WoG script, where each creature ended with +50 Att/Def after enough hero levels.
If you are no fan of this script you can just delete the "Creature Specialisation Third Upgrade Mod" and "81 wog - disable options" erm file in the Data/s folder.


4.Necromancy

Thanks to amethyst, something that has been asked for so much is now possible and it is necromancy compatibility with Third Upgrades Mod.
Necromancy has now been adapted and works as follows:

Basic Necromancy: Raise Skeletons
Advanced Necromancy: Raise Skeleton Warriors
Expert Necromancy: Raise Skeleton Knights

Cloak of the Undead King has also been made compatible with Third Upgrades Mod and Necromancy:

Basic Necromancy: Raise Ghouls
Advanced necromancy: Raise Ghosts
Necromancy Expert: Raise King Liches


5.Additional Units

Now it is possible to obtain additional units in the game, to obtain it there are 2 requirements,
You are required to build a dwelling of the same level as the same creature (For example to build Treehouse you need to build Enchaing Spring) and build an exclusive building for each faction.
To obtain the upgraded version of the additional unit it is required that the building to obtain a third upgrade be built.





Content pack In addition to third upgrade and additional units, these are the additional contents that the mod includes among others:







DOWNLOAD v2.13.1 for ERA 3

Update to v1.2.1 In this version the creatures' prices were balanced because many were unfairly inaccessible to buy due to the high cost of additional resources.

You can download here but it won't work with just that, you need to replace the file from Mods-Typhon-Era Plugins-typhon.era with this one for it to work Typhonz

Micro update to v1.2.2, Now Centaur Captain can shoot but with very little ammo and there will be no ability to get additional ammo, the ammo cart will be much more important here.

Updated to v1.2.4

-Fix Elves Sacred could't shoot.
-Balanced the price of the Avernum Magogs.
-Added some objects to the map editor.

Very good! Maybe some development? What about different buildings for each unit? Is possible simply use existing 2 level generators? If you built 2lvl you can pay for 3lvl as you can do it now by buing one building for all?

If you are referring to external dwellings to be able to hire the third type of creatures, we are working on that. If you mean inside the castle for now it's not necessary, once you buy the special building just click on the upgrade button. Probably in some future a script will be implemented to be able to recruit all three types of creatures at the same time within the castle, but not now.

Hello Kuririn, I know you, you're the author of the New Upgrades of VCMI that you are developing, I look forward to your mod because I know that it will be much better than what I have done with recycled defs. In the next Update I will remove it. Avatar told me about you, so don't give up! Go ahead and finish with that great feat of mod!

Looks amazing!

I used the original Typhon mod to add 504 creatures to my game.  I tried downloading this upgrade typhon mod hoping that they could over lap, but I can only get one version or the other.  Is there anyway to combine the Typhon original with this?

Yes, I know you, I have seen you in the Typhon thread before starting this work, but I must tell you that the only way to have my content is for you to redo it from scratch on your Typhon, it sounds like you can plagiarize what I I'm doing it, do it if you want, it doesn't bother me, anyway I'm the one who knows how to handle updates.

I'm sorry if I gave the wrong impression.  My intention was not to plagiarize someone else's mod and "one-up" someone else's work.  All I wanted to do was combine my favourite mods that are compatible together to enjoy privately.  I'm sure everyone has their own preferences of mods to mix and match.  I have no desire to plagiarize anyone's work and release it as my own, and I never said anything of that nature.  The only original work I've done was made a few custom maps, and terrain defs which isn't anything to brag about really lol.

Thank you for understanding  Oh I'm not a programmer at all, I can draw pictures that's it haha.   that's why I asked if there was a way to combine the two.  

would I have to move folders or transfer all the pics and portraits and texts into the mmarchive typhon file?

You will have to extract all my files from the .pac and if you don't use a .snd you can copy it from mine and move it to yours to use it if you want, also do the tedious process of adding the images in Twcport.def and cprsmall.def

@VMaiko Hi, I see the preventive counterstrike skill with the divine phoenix. Can you please tell me how you made it and how to port it for other creatures?

And for Guardian of Zeus, the Casting action cannot be disabled.

That trigger, is an exclusive ability in the Typhon function, you could do the same if you download Typhon in its respective thread.
And I know about casts, ERA 2 is very limited to this, you can only choose 2 options, unlike HoTA which allows you to choose the 3 types of actions.
