Well I was playing H4 and I was thinking to implement yet another feature from H4 in my mod:

Satyrs (creature 192) cast Mirth
Leprechauns (creature 173) cast Fortune

I want it to be like the Elementals casting Protection spells. That means normal attack should be allowed as well.

So it would just be like x% of the time they cast their spell?

I think this is even easier than I thought. Wouldn't you just use EA with either J or j and choose your percentage per level...?

No that's not what I meant. I meant to give them the ability to cast 3 times Mirth or Fortune per battle. Just like Storm Elementals cast protection from Air in battle. The number of casting times is found in ZCRTRAITS.txt file, I know how to edit that one.

With EA but then it will not be the same. It won't be instead of attacking.

Ah ok I misunderstood you. Thought you meant by 'normal attacking should still be allowed' that they would do it and attack. You just want a basic creature that can cast. Gotcha. I'll see what I can do when I have a spare moment, but you can code it like this (pseudo code):

MM0 trigger
get position of mouse
get stack at position
make sure currents stack has enough spells left
if friendly and current stack is satyr, change to spell cursor
change hint text to 'cast mirth' or whatever
perhaps set some flag

CM trigger (and maybe that flag)
disable standard reaction (maybe not needed)
cast the spell on that creature
add battlelog message if wanted
stack done for the round
decrease stack spell count by 1

So something like that.

OK I see it needs a lot of work and most importantly battle triggers and that's a little too complicated for my taste. I was hoping there was a pattern already done (like the shooting creatures script) and it only needed to tweak the parameters at your taste.

No big deal though, it's not that important to add these abilities anyways...

Hopefully this isn't too many lines for you to handle. This makes creature 192 cast mirth on a friendly creature. The three lines you will have to change for leps I put a star next to. Having them both means you will also need to change up flag 444 to some other flag. Enjoy and ask if you don't understand (pretty basic though, almost exactly followed what I said needed to be done).

Thank you, it seems to work OK although it seems weird for some reasons:

-> The creature can cast it on itself (something that doesn't happen with other casting creatures)

-> The spell is cast without a sound

-> The Satyrs don't really do anything (when a creature casts a spell it uses the melee attack animation).

What I am saying is that although you get the same result it seems kind of unnatural (and like the game has a glitch or something).

I was hopping that the script gives the exact same function as the original creatures casting spells does. I do appreciate your help though and thanks again

P.S.: Just for future reference how can you add additional casters with this script? For instance how would I add a spell for the leprechauns? Would I just copy paste the script again (and change variables) or is there a way to implement the additional spellcaster on the same trigger?

I said it is difficult.

Applying spell with BM:M is just work around, make it work as genies do is another thing.

@Salamandre: Making it like genies would only be like 4 or 5 more lines right? Just an array that holds all the numbers for possible spells, then choose an index randomly...reset it each round.

I have no idea. It seems to me necessary to work directly in memory, much more checks are needed, like immunities, tactics phase, terrain, artefacts wielded and how AI will use it. For a custom scenario is good if only human, but for whole mod if AI can't have it it will be unbalanced.

I already posted the code here to check the resistance to spell for a particular stack. That should be enough.

Probably the easiest thing to do for AI I would think is check if they defend, and if so, make them cast instead. Usually I would think casting is better than defending as long as it lasts more than a turn, especially a fairly good spell like mirth.

Bersey there must be a table that holds which creatures are casters, one that the WoG team knew about because commanders can cast, if it's findable it would be great to know.

AI uses such magic stupidly, at least for commanders.

AFAIK, commanders casting is badly done: AI uses wrong spell id when possibility of casting calculated.

Hey, what is the code for 3rd upgrade or alternative upgrade? I tried to copy some lines from HoL 3 to make own script for ERA but no luck. How to do it?

And what about 3rd creature dwelling upgrade in town?

So if i would like my Steel Golems upgradable to Gold Golems what is the script?

!#MA:U33/116;

The dwelling one requires more work, but the actual line that is needed is
!!CA-1:D2/2/116/$;

where $ is the number of gold golems (I assumed you wanted it for foundry third slot). However you can only put that when inside the town, and the growth is sadly no linked to the growth of the regular golems, so if you buy a regular it won't decrease the gold golem count and vice versa. Don't try to run before you can walk. Try this to start (but I am sure it will be buggy):

!?CM1;
!!CA-1: T?y1  B3/39 M1/2/d/?y2; !!FU|y1<>2/-1:E;
!!CA-1:D2/2/116/y2;

Can I place custom objects on map using ERM?
I used: !!UN:I1/1/0/40/100;
Game crashes, when I'm trying to place non custon object, it works good.
I also tried: !!UN:I1/1/0/40/0/40/100;
Still crashes. 40, 100 is a custom object that I made.
And another question: how to check terrain type, when hero is moving?
