IR v4 Beta (last update 20 June 2017)


Recommended Posts

Long time no see!

 

I've been feeling that it seems the turn is nigh to play the BG series with the great Revision Mods... :)

 

I hope everything is fine and the mods will be finally released in the near future.

My RL is still a bitch but you picked the right day to be back. I wanted to squeeze into IR's next build a few more things (*) but I have only this afternoon thus I'm not sure if I manage to do that. Regardless, I'll give Kreso the new build today, if it passes his first check tonight it will be up.

 

(*) Store Revision doesn't touch BG1 and I wanted to try handling it myself (albeit Arda would surely do a much better job). For example a beta tester (Jad) reported me stuff like 2x Night Embrace rings on the same store, and that's almost game-breaking for IR's standards. The problem is that I'm not Arda and it may take too much, if it does I'll keep it for the next build because I want IR out today.

Hello

 

Would you mind take a look at Skin of the Forest +3

It says it doesn't stack with similar magic, but I'm able to wield it together with a barkskin spell, thus making it really good. Don't know if it really was the intention, as it is obtained after a "harder" quest.

 

Cheers

Sorry guys for taking so long, from now on I'll go back to smaller but quicker updates. Every single time I try to do a big update I get stuck with RL and random stuff popping up everywhere.

 

Anyway, a new build is up. Here's the change-log:

V4 - Beta 6 (25 January 2015)
- merged potions into the main component item table
- reintroduced unidentified ioun stone description to prevent installation failure
- fixed bug where some headbands were misidentified as banded armor
- updated component predicates for various games
- Cleaving enhacement also grants +10 bonus to weapon speed factor for 2 seconds
- minor fixes (effects targeting, displayed icons, etc.)
- Crimson Chain's Blood Rage no longer causes loss of control, still grants +2 thac0/dmg but not +2 to all saves
- Girdle of Beatification uses again vanilla's Girdle of Hill Giant icon (V3 red sash wasn't blending in enough imo)
- Girdle of Trollish Fortitude uses a new icon
- Belt of Inertial Barrier no longer halves mov rate, but causes -1 penalty to weapon speed/thac0/dmg
- Cloak of Vengeance tweaked to not spam the screen with lightning bolts (20% chance, 6d6 dmg)
- Silver Dagger (Werebane) is now a returning throwing dagger, uses a new icon (it was almost identical to Longtooth)
- Heart of the Golem no longer share the icon with Nester/Kylee/Hentold daggers, added +1 AC while equipped
- Dagger of Venom now uses a unique icon with a greenish blade (in-game color tweaked to match it)
- Suryris's Blade gets a Staggering effect (save vs. breath or suffer -1/2 apr and -4 casting speed penalty for 1 round)
- Arbane's 1/day Haste replaced with Hastening effect (10% chance +1/2 apr and +2 mov rate for 2 rounds, cumulative)
- Shazzelim added to IR
- Sword of Flame no longer share Flame Tongue's icon
- The Claw of Kazgoroth added to IR, minor tweaks (e.g name changed from Kazgaroth to match PnP, extended lore)
- The Horn of Kazgoroth added to IR, minor tweaks (e.g. changed from x charges to 1/day)
- Staff of the High Forest gains +1 casting speed bonus, no longer grants protection against insect spells
- Cloak of the High Forest gets immunity to insects and +10% elemental res, regen rate improved, +1 to AC/saves removed
- Firecam Full Plate Mail magic dmg resistance lowered from 50% to 40%
- Sword of Arvoreen's Enfeebling enhancement sligthly tweaked, now works via spl as per Ardulia's Mace
- Corthala Family Armor no longer grants immunity to charm
- Handmaiden's Mace added to IR, enchantment raised by 1, added 33% to cast Web on target, still Envenomed, new icon
- Dark Elven Chain now grants immunity to poison and +10% bonus to magic resistance
- Sword of Chaos +4 (Ascension only) added to IR, 10% magic resistance replaced by +2 to all saves

 

 

@Dakk, thanks man I will probably need some help indeed for BG1 part of Store Revisions.

 

@Shaitan, the armor looks fine, it makes the wearer immune to Barkskin. Did you pehaps cast the spell before equipping the armor? In that case you bypassed the immunity. I can block that exploit for the next SR build.

Demi, I'd like to join the beta testing, especially about the BG1 part of Store Revisions with BG:EE! If you allow me, I'd also wanted to use the latest SR to test it.

@leania, the links I gave you via PM are still valid, do you still have them?

 

Regarding BG1 Store Revisions, assuming I can manage to code it looking at Arda's code, what I need is:

- a complete list of all BG1 shops/vendors

- a mini-review of each of them with infos such as shop type (e.g. smith, alchemist, library, fence etc.), and a bit of background for the vendor

- personal suggestions (e.g. item x should probably go there; that shop should be cheap or vice-versa, etc.)

I checked it out and the latest version of IR seems OK but I'm not sure about SR. The latest updated date is about 3 months ago. Is it the latest version?

Yes, I'm working right now on the next SR build but I don't want to give an ETA (it could be tomorrow or next week depending on too many factors).

Nalia's Ring

Nalia's ring gives +2 luck with IR. It does not give +2 to minimum damage, however, which I thought it was supposed to?

Luck itself gives +2 minimum damage. Try shooting 1d6 arrows on a non-armored character, you'll see she never rolls <3.

I see. It seems that I need to focus on how the Store Revisions component works now and give you feedback, don't I? :)
