Children of Storm

A high fantasy mod pack for Fallen Enchantress: Legendary heroes by Heavenfall, with help from EviliroN and jeffqyzt2. Players are advised to not play with the Rivermod on Huge maps, as the game may have issues with memory then. If you are having issues with world resources, such as iron ore, not appearing in your game - delete the Rivermod folder and start a new game. This only affects a small number of players for unknown reasons.

And they forged counterfeits from our frame, creatures vile and

obscene, who hungered only for violent congress. These beasts they

loosed upon the land, where they multiplied, no matter how fierce

the Ishroi hunted them. And soon Men clamoured at our gates,

begging sanctuary, for they could not contend with the creatures.

"They wear your face," the penitents cried. "This calamity is your

issue." But we were wroth, and turned them away, saying,

"These are not our Sons. And you are not our Brothers."


from the Isûphiryas (Great Pit of Years)

Hi,

I've just reinstalled Fallen Enchantress: Legendary after a few months of break. This mod was a reason I wanted to play again. Everything seem okay except that I have graphic issues with some contents not appearing. I've ran the game as administrator as suggested, but it doesn't solve the problem.

 

Graphic not appearing examples:

New mounts

Some sovereign that must have different looks like the chaos legion sovereign.

New monster like the bees

 

Thanks for any help and congrats for the nice mod!

Make sure you follow the installation instructions in readme.txt and place the /Gfx/ folder in the right place.

Thanks for your quick answer.

 

I moved the gfx into the main mods folder and it worked. Thanks for your help.

 

However, this instruction does not appear in the readme.txt that I consulted before posting here.

 

Install instructions:
1. To install the Children of Storm mod, extract all the folders to Documents/My Games/LegendaryHeroes/Mods
2. Take the files in /ChildrenOfStorm_TacticalMaps/ and move them to Documents/My Games/LegendaryHeroes/Maps/TacticalMaps
3. Make sure that you turn on "Use Mods" in the in-game Options menu.

 

Going to play now!

Hey guys, I am new to game, so bear with me and thanks in advance. )

Installed the game, played couple of vanilla games to get taste of it and installed CoS. Couple of observations/questions if you don't mind.

I started on easy in vanilla and it was obvious I was obliterating them on small/medium maps and 3 enemies. 

Tried challenging after installing CoS, but now I am back to normal, due to following ->

First thing I noticed was that neutral enemies around were tougher (or is it just me?) and I found it harder to level up, while also being defeated couple of times by enemies with 60-70 HP. Is this intended? I had to restart a couple of games.

Also, when I am starting the game, I get only the new factions, from what I can notice. I love undead, angels and it all looks good, but what, for example, I would like to play a human summoner? Am I missing something?

And tips would be appreciated.

Also, two non-mod questions: why I can't settle outside the first starting tile? Sometimes it seems it's just not the best spot (for example, very close to the ocean or mountains - is ocean useless?); coming from Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri heritage, I am used to finding the sweetest spot for starting base.

Also, those quests with statues (like, find Two Dragon something) - they keep pointing me to that statue, like I have to do something there, although to me it seems I am missing something then. Is it like an entrance to a cave or something I am missing to activate?

Thanks again, hope you can help me to get started better.

If you want the vanilla sovs back, go into your Children of Storm mod folder... look for the folder called "ChildrenOfStorm_NoVanillaSov" and delete it.

You can... but only where there is a tile yield shown on the map.

"World Difficulty" affects the strength of neutral monsters (they start off either minus or plus so-and-so levels) whilst "Typical Intelligence of Opponents" affects the other players. I don't think one affects the other though.

To enable old factions within the mod simply go to User/My Documents/My Games/LegendaryHeroes/Mods/ and delete the folder titled "ChildrenOfStorm_NoVanillaSoV".

You can try somewhere outside the starting area, but chances are it will be very dangerous so I wouldn't recommend it. As for Ocean, yeah it's useless, HOWEVER, the rivers connecting to the ocean provide you with the dock line of buildings which provide a fairly significant amount of food and a little extra gildar as well.

You can either take the dragon eyes by force, meaning you fight a dragon (Yikes!) or it will send you off on a little quest of which I can't remember. I usually skip it because the 2 dragon eyes required are usually (in my games) spread so far out it's a real hassle.

Hi

I just got this mod, and its pretty cool, but I can't seem to train pioneers as the Chaos Legion? Is there a trick to it?

As long as you have enough Demon Souls you should be able to train them. They need 30 demon souls each, if I remember correctly.

I have 30 souls but its not showing up in the training list. Should they be showing up in the training list without enough souls? They aren't listed.

 

Could I have installed something wrong? I'm using the patchwork mod also.

Quoting abe159,

I don't have access to the game at the moment, or I'd check, but if you want to isolate which mod introduces the problem you could try to reproduce the issue in a game with *just* CoS installed...if you can build pioneers there, then the problem must lie with the Patchwork mod (or, more specifically, its "compatibility with CoS" mod - you are running that too, right?)

You can disable the DLC if you use Steam Beta. Or you can just play without any of the DLC sovereigns.

Do you need someone to gift you the newest DLC to get it compatible?    I'm sure a few of us owe you at least that for all the work you've done.

No, I have it, but thank you for the offer.

The DLC includes new sovereigns, and they need new background stats to work properly with the mod (example: to make them "count as sovereign" or even "count as humanoid").

But there is no good way for me to insert those stats using a mod. I can copy the sovereigns, but then I am just copying something from DLC ($5) and including it in my mod. People wouldn't need the DLC to get the sovereigns. Not good. I've seen one or two other mods do this, but I didn't speak up and neither did the devs.

The other option is for Derek Paxton to include the background unitstats in the official release. He has kindly done so for dlc 1-4. I sent him an updated file for dlc 5, but he hasn't responded. He has said in the past that he can only include such things if there needs to be another update anyway to the file. In other words, he is understandably not just going to do an official update for the background unitstats.

 

So where does that leave the player?

1) Don't use the mod

2) Use the mod, but expect wonkiness with DLC 5 sovereigns (and armorpieces)

3) Use the mod, don't buy dlc 5 (leader pack)

4) If you did buy it already and still want to use the mod, you can install Steam beta and then disable the DLC

Quoting Heavenfall,

Fair enough, however I think you could include the relevant files without causing a problem.  If you provide an updated version the Units file with BG stats for the Sovs (which I think might be the file that needs an update, maybe the mounts one also)... it won't work if you haven't bought the DLC.  Without the graphics file that come with it, and the other files (Abilities etc)... it's not much use.

So you could probably just include an optional install file DLC05_Units without causing a problem.
