SR V4 Open Beta (last update 25 October 2018)

Recommended Posts

You install the update party members' spellbooks component? (e): Actually, looks like that's only for divine spellcasters. Interesting, considering that there's a number of mage spells moved around.

I do. Here is my WeiDU log.

Hey guys,

 

how would I go about removing the Planetar's 15% insta-kill attack?

 

It's really cheap.

 

Encounter a challenging fight? Just summon a couple planetars and have them attack. Nothing happens? reload. But eventually if you're lucky they'll just one-shot anything in the game.

 

At first I thought it was funny but now I simply don't summon them anymore, pure cheese.

 

I think it's their weapon that insta-kills? I know my way around EEKeeper and NearInfinity a bit

Did you try to change Planetar.itm >> item ability >>>effect >>>Kill target >>>probability 25%? (This reflects the NI sequence to it)

I'm not sure this is the right item?

 

I summoned a planetar and it summons plangood.cre, which has the following item equipped:

 

planetar.jpg

 

 

But the item itself has no tooltip.

 

Or did I mess up something?

I use Near Infinity. Plangood.cre (and all other planetars) have a silver sword called planetar.itm which is the one I was talking about. It is in the weapon1 slot.

By the way I went and opened "plangood.cre" directly from the spell revisions v4 beta 14 downloaded folder from bigworldsetup (not override one), and it's holding the same sword as I am.
So weird

No, your case is correct, Daxtreme - they are supposed to be using the dv- weapons. The two weapons you're looking for are DVPLANGW and DVPLANEW, and you want to remove all extended effects on the item ability (as all three for both are to do with the Vorpal property). You open up the item, you go to edit (to the right of "view" at the top), then you go down to the "item ability", and then you can delete the three "Effect"s at the very bottom.

Thank you that worked perfectly :)

 

May I suggest adding this as an option for Spell Revisions in the future?

 

I seem to recall that quite a few people weren't fans of the Vorpal effect of Planetars a few years back, and I have to agree with them. It gets annoying after a while.

I don't agree with the change.

 

Many high level enemies are immune to that effect. Planetars are supposed to be extremely powerful and, if I am not mistaken, the chance of the insta-kill has already been nerfed by both IR and SR (Bartimaeus can probably answer this).

Vanilla Deva: 3D6 +3 crushing weapon with an undead-slaying that occurred 100% of the time at a -4 saving throw vs. death, along with some deafness, feeblemindedness, and stunning effects

Vanilla Fallen Deva: 2D10 + 3 slashing weapon that had a 25% chance of causing instant death to anyone at a -2 saving throw vs. death (along with the deafness and feeblemindedness effects)

SR Deva: 1D10 + 3 crushing weapon that has an undead-slaying effect that occurs 100% of the time but with a vs. spells at no penalty saving throw, and a 50% 2 round stun effect at 0 penalty vs. spell saving throw.

SR Fallen Deva: 1D8 + 3 slashing weapon that also has a 1D6 fire and 1 damage per round for 5 rounds poison effect.

 

Definitely a big nerf in terms of weaponry.

 

Vanilla Planetars: 2D10 + 3 slashing weapon that had a 25% chance of a no-save dispel effect, and a instant-slaying effect that occurs 25% at a -2 death penalty.

SR Planetars: 2D6 + 3 slashing weapon with an instant-slaying effect that occurs 15% at a -2 death penalty.

 

So also a nerf in terms of weaponry. It wouldn't be too hard to create a switch in settings.ini that has alternative weapons that swap out the vorpal effect for something else, though, for those who really hate a bunch of vorpal effects being around all of the time.

If you don't like the optional component of removing vorpal, you could always, you know, not install it?

 

I fail to see how that changes your game in any way if you don't like it? That's what mods are for, installing optional components that some people like.

 

Sorry if I'm being a bit blunt here but I recall several people saying they'd like to see this optional component being made available a few years ago. It took me literally 2 minutes to remove the vorpal effect from my install once I knew how to do it (thanks Bartimaeus!)

 

That being said, it could also be switched with something else. Great idea! Maybe a stun effect? Still very strong.

Daxtreme,

 

my bad. I misread and thought you were advocating such a change for SR, not as an option. Of course I have nothing against it.

 

Said that, I find a little odd how you think it is "really cheap" to have a 15% vorpal effect for a creature like Planetars but it is not cheesy to follow the strategy you suggested just after:

 

Encounter a challenging fight? Just summon a couple planetars and have them attack. Nothing happens? reload. But eventually if you're lucky they'll just one-shot anything in the game.

 

At first I thought it was funny but now I simply don't summon them anymore, pure cheese.

I guess tastes are tastes. Personally, I can hardly think of something cheaper than that.

Meh, if anything the planetar should be removed altogether and replaced with something more appropriate for wizards, like an elemental or a golem. Or maybe a high-power genie (marid?)
