  1. Don't worry, no one is. Lol, but we love you anyway! I have high hopes
  2. One way to partially check is to check if the scroll icon matches the spell being cast. This should help: https://github.com/UnearthedArcana/B_Spells/blob/master/B_Spells/data/components/Setup_Revised_Spells.tpa#L306 The above checks a spell for a specific opcode, and saves the resource as "item"--because then I need to do stuff to the item. But you could do something similar for scrolls to check if the spell matches the icon. Edit2: to be clearer, you would need to check for a resource that matches the spell icon--the first 7characters--ie for the cast spell opcode--where it only does whatever if they match.
  3. I'm pretty sure you could do a READ_ASCII and then check with a STRING_CONTAINS_REGEXP. I've done something similar here: https://github.com/UnearthedArcana/B_Spells/blob/master/B_Spells/data/components/Setup_Priest_Scrolls.tpa .
  4. The whole "pantaloons" set might count as a joke
  5. Completely agree. Lol. My ini is getting crazy, and the number of combinations that I have to consider is getting...out of hand. The whole thing is such that I have to assume nothing for every single spell (to the point where I'm using RES_NUM_OF_SPELL_NAME for known spells like chill touch...lol) That reminds me: I have to peep SRR to ensure compatibility when I get the chance--it's probably not enough if I just ensure compatibility with SR anymore... and then there is IR and IRR. lol Yeah, I have a tweak that changes the spell (mostly as is, but resetting fatigue to 1) to a 1st level spell called "Remove Fatigue". I think that's an actual AD&D spell, so bonus. I'm thinking of ways to make Unfailing Endurance worth a 4th level slot (refreshing fatigue of the party, as well as giving each member an innate ('second wind') that allows them to refresh their fatigue again...or something)
  6. One idea I had for N. Poison was to combine it with Cure disease and cure paralysis and rename it, "Cure Affliction", or something like that.
  7. Don't undead have d12 HD? Or am I thinking 3ed?
  8. Yeah, if you're not careful, this could easily become a creature revisions mod. Lol
  9. This reminds me of my Cantrip and Orison spells. They each allow the caster to cast from a selection of minor spells (ie priest or mage cantrips, respectively) that are weak for the level but make up for the descrepancy by offering variety (if some version of 1st level cantrips is installed, it is added as a 2nd level spell). The idea of having one version per level also solves a problem introduced by SR. Now, of course, I understand why SR made it a first level spell. It's so weak in anything like it's current form that it is just not worth a second level slot. But, it's not really worth a first level slot, either (I think Demi himself has said as much). And now if you want to completely revise the spell you have to account for it as both a first and second level spell (depending on whether SR is installed). Also, I think IWDEE has it under a different internal name, so that's another wrinkle. Anyway, having multiple versions for each level can streamline the series of spells. Add a version under the bg(2)ee internal name (making sure to remove the original spell res from hidespl in IWDEE), and add a version under the IWDEE spell name and you don't even have to do a check for SR (though you still need to worry about IWDEE). And you don't really need to have 7 versions. It could be like the animal summoning spells in vanilla (e.g. version 1 at level 2 or 3, version 2 one level higher, etc.). It should only target the person eating the berry, imo, and should never have an effect that is equal to an effect that can be produced by a priest spell at the level of the spell (or higher). The only exception is when you have a revision that lowers the level of such a spell to at least one level below the berry in question. For example, I have a revision that replaces unfailing endurance with a more level appropriate toughness spell and duplicates the effects of UE as a 1st level spell remove fatigue (I'll be taking your advice re reducing fatigue level to 1 rather than 0). In such a case, I think it's perfectly valid to have a spell that restores fatigue that is lower than 4th level (edit: but again, not 1st level imo)
  10. That's...a good point, as least re C. Crawlers. I'll probably revisit the spell and make "dumb" creatures immune to disbelieve. My plan had been to make exceptionally intelligent creatures automatically disbelieve (e.g. int 19 creatures vs 1st level illusions)
  11. Oh, this is cool. It's been a while so I don't quite remember the details, but I've done similar things with illusory monsters for the Phantasmal Force series of spells. The "real/fake" weapons in particular is a nice touch. I think I just gave them "fake" weapons One thing I did was give them all a contingency effect that killed them if a nearby enemy saved vs spell (the save had higher penalties for higher level versions, I believe). The idea was to simulate the "disbelieve" mechanic. I think I actually increased their hp total to compensate (if you fail to disbelieve, you are in for the fight of your life). Edit: looking, I guess this was just for higher level versions. The first level summons just had a single hp Edit: subtle, I found some notes from a convo we had about it. See the second and third posts here: https://github.com/UnearthedArcana/B_Spells/issues/184 Here's the actual spell (should work but tested more than a year ago): https://github.com/UnearthedArcana/B_Spells/blob/master/B_Spells/data/components/Setup_New_Spells.tpa#L1222
  12. Yup, it shouldn't be a sure thing. That's definitely better and overall more useful alternative. I just now checked out your iwd styled spell evasion. Very cool. I'm going to have to use that (lol, I'm always 6 steps behind you). The idea of the spell is to resist alterations to the body, so maybe it would also make sense to have the same effect against poisons and disease (as they alter your body at the cellular level).
  13. These are great. I really like almost all of the changes you made here. Two things, though. I agree that the change to protection from petrification is probably too strong (like the original, the spell is both too strong yet too limited). I also think the change to luck is a bit too much. Personally, I'd rather extend the duration to something like 3 rounds +1/level (which I'll do in my tweak if you don't like the idea). Edit: for some reason, I thought luck was a 1st level spell. As it's a 2nd level spell, I'm fine with the change
  14. Spell levels: You can create unique spell (umm) variations by adding headers with extremely high casting level requirements and then, under certain circumstances, adding the relevant number of casting levels to the character. For example, Pecca's spontaneous casting mod adds cure/inflict/summon effects to all priest spells and gives priests an innate that increases their casting level by the relevant amount. This should be done in 50 level increments to account for spell advancement over 50 levels for mod compatibility. I'm not sure what, if any, the spell level limits are. I know I tested up to (I think it was) spell level 10,000 and it worked. But, conflicts can arise if two mods use the same range of levels for the same classes. Edit: Pecca's mod (and shortly b_spells and fnp) is the only mod that uses this to my knowledge and I don't know offhand what level ranges are used. I'll update
