June 14: Weapon Changes Empty June 14: Weapon Changes

Post by The Amethyst Dragon Sun Jun 14, 2009 9:48 pm

As per a suggestion in this forum, I'm changing the standard short spears so they can be used with a shield and altering whips so they can be used in the left hand or dual-wielded.

And since I was altering the baseitems.2da file, I got an idea stuck in my head and it just wouldn't go away until I did something with it. About 14 hours of work later, I think I've managed to add a new type of weapon for the game. In most cases the visible model isn't very obvious, but it's not supposed to be.

June 14: Weapon Changes Cestus_preview

It looks funny if you have armor with bare hands, but looks nice with gloved/gauntleted armor.

Stats:
Damage: 1d4 bludgeoning
Critical: 19-20/x2
Proficiencies: Simple, Monk, Wizard, Rogue (and a couple of others...basically, everyone)
Slot: right hand only (and looks best with the improved hands models)
Special: since weapon models don't scale with gender, there are male and female versions (once I start adding them to the game, I'll include code to automatically swap between the versions when one is acquired)

These will, of course, mean a fresh download of the aeneahak_updates.hak file and aenea.tlk file (now available here) if you want to use (or see) them.

Spear works, and looks really nice with a shield and the spear&shield style Smile

Whips aren't changed though Sad

I did notice that the timestamp on the hak was june 2nd, which was the same as the previous hak. Redownloaded new, same timestamp on hak. Tlk file seems to be current (june 13th).

Hmmm...I'll have to take another look at the 2da. Might be a column I missed somewhere.

Thanks.

Ok, SPyder has duel whips working for her. But I cannot get them to equip in the offhand for Aurora. I've tried now 10 seperate downloads of the hakupdate and tlk. The spears are one handed/offhandable, but not the whips.

Yeah, it wasn't a class thing. The file I keep getting from the vault is the June 2nd version, not the June 14th version. I still haven't gotten the emails you sent, but the one Ceorlas sent made it through.

Just tried downloading them myself; hak & talk files came through as June 2 and May 31, respectively?

I've seen this before, and part of the issue might be from various servers not getting updated quickly enough (you know, all those other machines between the Vault and your computer).

I'll try uploading the file again later today anyway to see if that helps. Smile

Yeah, I've had this problem before on the "release date" of an Aenea Update Hak... give it a day or two and try again.. if the problem persists then inform The Amethyst Dragon that something is messed up somewhere...

Usually I have to wait on average "an extra day" to download new content, I guess it has something to do distance, differing timezones, vault updates, and the "bunny-hop-step-serverS" that link "the vault" together... .. pa

AFAIK, they look poor when in the off hand; No Feats available besides Weapon Finesse, I believe; No Monk bonuses apply.

Everybody can use a cestus. It's a simple weapon, plus it's on a couple of the "class" lists (such as wizard).
