Just another thing going into the next hak update... Staffw10

This little screenshot is just showing what I did today when I wasn't taking care of my kids. I was rather productive.

For those that are wondering what this is...it's 2/3 of the new magic staff "tops" I'm making for Aenea. Yes, 80 so far, and another 41 still on my list (hopefully I'll finish up with those tomorrow). Then on to the planned 56 new "middle" shaft parts, then the 57 planned new "bottom" parts.

Yes, for those spellcasters that might want to carry around a magic staff and look all wizardly, there will be more variety once I get this update done. Oh, and I'm doing away with the default BioWare ones, since they're all (with the exception of one specific staff) annoyingly ugly. I'm replacing the ones from the CEP, too, since I don't really care for many of those.

I'm enjoying making the new models, but I'm not looking forward to having to make new icons for every single one of them...not a difficult task, just tedious after the first 30 or so.

Yes, this does mean I'm trying to pack in as many content projects as possible into the next hak update. Smile Potions, staves, tilesets...might as well make it worth the downloading time.

The way my mind works (and with some little discoveries along the way)...the planned 120 staff top parts is not going to happen. Right now the count stands at 180. Not planned...made. Just another thing going into the next hak update... Icon_eek

Plus, I've been experimenting, and one of the "bottom" part options will be to overlay a dynamic light over the top part. Yup, that means lighting that shifts around as you are beating on stuff with your magic staff is possible.

I can see that I'm going to have to add magical staff appearance crafting to the mystical modification boots for those spellcasters with the Imbue Focus feat, because I'll never have time to actually use every option (or combination of options) myself.

I think I need to quit what I'm doing and get working on the middle and bottom parts. Just another thing going into the next hak update... Icon_rolleyes

I would think that a voucher shouldn't be required - it's not like the item is just being redesigned by the player...

On some you can, some you can't. If I recall correctly, it depends on if the plot flag is set on the item when you submit it. A number of my characters' items had the plot flag set and are unalterable.

Magic staves aren't currently doable with the tailoring mannequins either until The Amethyst Dragon tweaks them.

Existing reward voucher staves that will need a visual redesign can just be emailed to me, with a note mentioning the staff model update (along with the usual username/character name/original name of the item).

Largest single model file in the staff overhaul:
263 KB

Reason for the large file size:
I had the insane idea to create a staff made from vertabrae. Then I modeled the thing from scratch.

Nobody will ever again have to suffer when someone says wizards have no spine...when you can pull one out of your pack and use it to unleash a deadly spell on them.

And yes, I've got a staff item in mind for this one. Just another thing going into the next hak update... Icon_twisted

Just another thing going into the next hak update... Spine10

That's a mighty fine idea! And a giant placeable version is actually a lot easier than making a staff part that needs to line up with other parts.

He might have some nerve, but I'm not sure. I'd have to give it some thought and then get back to you about it.

Perfect choice for the graduating apprentice mage who strives to get a head....

The second staff would be good for mage duels; what starts as a fight ends up in a hockey match....

On a rare serious note, if the Wizard quest in the Undead city is still broken, perhaps the new associated quest item that should be sought might be the complete skeleton of an ancient mage as the base for these new staves. It could be assembled at Bluebeards, and might have multiple options so not every mage has the same exact reward, at least in appearance.


Good stuff The Amethyst Dragon!
