Has anyone played the current version with BoB and CB, even though they are for 1.7? Will I have problems?

I play with Black Market Bazaar, Champion Bonanza, CoS and XtraDeconstruct and all seems fine. I maybe get a crash once every 2-3 hours, but that's fine. 


With Cos, I don't play with the rivers Module or the no-van Sov Module.


These 4 mods make LH 2.0+ in IMO

Yes I meant Black Market Bazaar, I don't know where I got the "o" from. That's good to know, thank you.

The bug I refer to in my post is the one where pioneers who are en route to a destination disappear on reload.

Quoting Primal_Savage,

Black Market Bazaar (BoB? BMB) and Champion Bonanza (CB) are most likely up to date even if it says 1.7 as they rely on mechanisms that were not updated by 1.8. However, you should bump one (or both) thread(s) and Hellions will confirm or deny what I'm saying. I strongly recommend using both. If BoB means something else you will have to enlighten me 

 

I can confirm the wisdom of these words: BMB and CB came out of the LH 1.8 patch unscathed and do not require any additional tinkering. I've updated each thread accordingly.

(oh and thanks too)

Hey Primal,

 

I'm getting this message when I try to recruit certain heroes.

Hero Recruit

I play with Betrayer trait. So not sure if it's Empire Heroes while I'm Kingdom.

Also, I do play with Champion Bonanza. I've seen this on several lvl 9 heroes. I can't yet hire those in my game, so not sure if I could hire this guy once unlocled or not.

 

Thanks.

I'm getting "No String", so what have I got wrong?

 

P.S. Here is a Warg den that gave me no loot. All wold and Wargs do that for me.

Quoting Primal_Savage,

As I read your reply, I can't figure out if Xtra is installed in the ...\Mods\ folder or in the ...\Mods\XtraDeconstruct\ folder. It should be installed in:

...\Mods\XtraDeconstruct\

This should usually happens automatically if unzipped normally. The reason why this is important is because the files from Xtra are loaded after the files from CoS if installed in the ...\Mods\XtraDeconstruct\ folder. That being said, I can't see this being an issue for the specific case of Centaur base. The rest of your description sounds right.

 

About files being overwritten, yes that's correct, as the A_LHLIB_UnitStat_BG_vM is included in both CoS and Xtra (and some other mods).

 

I would try Children of Storm alone, without any other mods and see if you still have the same problem.

 

Otherwise, some questions that might help figure out the problem (or not):

Are you having similar issues with Drotas? (Spider legs not showing up)

Are you having similar issues with other mounts such as Horses, Wargs, etc.? (Centaur base is a mount).

Any other mods installed?

 

Not sure what is Xtra....but it seems that all the files like A_Changelog.txt etc are installed to the following folder...

For example the full path is:

....\My Games\LegendaryHeroes\Mods\XtraDeconstruct\A_Changelog.txt

The Drota legs seem to reappear if i do not do the overwrites.


Horse and Wargs are fine...

I tried upper casing my folder, that did not work, so I just put it in the main game folder. That worked!

Once you Xtra you never go back to Vanilla anyways

Quoting Primal_Savage,

@Auggie12

Xtra = χD = XtraDeconstruct

 


Quoting Auggie12,
The Drota legs seem to reappear if i do not do the overwrites.



A_LHLIB_UnitStat_BG_vM

"The purpose of this library-type mod is to flag unittypes, items and traits with certain UnitStats that will allow the modders to identify them in various scenarios."

This library is independent and so it shouldn't have any effect on Drota/Centaur mounts (legs), so I'm not sure why overwriting it (or not) changes the appearance of Drota/Centaurs in-game. That being said, just keep using the A_LHLIB_UnitStat_BG_vM that comes with Children of Storm if it works for you. The version packaged w/ XtraDeconstruct is essentially the same as the version packaged with Children of Storm...

 

Does that solves all the problems or are you still missing something for Centaurs/Drota?

 

Thanks. Just wondering is there any sort of "Load order" for the mods that is required? if so, is there a mod manager that does this?

Some ideas for your next version. These might have been mentioned and rejected already.

 

For city upgrades, I'd like to see the three types of cities have different defending units.

For example, the Conclave cities will get Monks, the Fortress would get spear-men and the Town dogs. This way differentiate them and you'd plan differently depending on what type of city you're attacking. With each upgrade the differentiation should be more pronounce. 

Also possibly a unique building per city type that would add more of these units. Towns would get kennels to add a defending dog(s), Conclave something to add a magic unit and Fortress more regular units. 

 

Also, I'd like to see a Hardy-Pioneer. Maybe have one more move and the animals less lightly to attack or escape ability.

 

Thanks.

Hey Savage,

 

I wanted to confirm I fully understand the below Faction Traits and Sovereign Talents.

I think they are all straight forward, but wanted to confirm.

 

Faction Traits:

Monster Affinity:

I assume this is just that all summoned, living creatures get the +4 level.

MA

 

Invokers:

Will this boos both Living and dead creatures?

x


Shamans:

The x1.1, does that mean +10% to damage, but only to weapons that already have poison?

So if it’s a regular weapon you don’t get anything additionally?

Shamans

 

Sorcerers:

Basically 33% in spell damage? (or in the case of heal, it would heal 33% more)

Sor

 

Charmers:

What exactly is the additional modding needed here?

What are the additional Mods needed here, just the swapping out of the default "TechTree_Amarian" with "TechTree_X_race"?

spell

 

Sovereign Talents:

Chaos / Order:

I assume these are still WIP and currently should not be selected.

x1

 

Midas Flux:

Could you explain this one to me?

mf

 

Recruiter:

Does this mean your summoned, living, creatures would get 1+ level for each of your 4 levels? So if I’m level 12, I’ll get +3 to my summons?

rec

 

Savage:

So this attack causes the target to get a random injury.

sav

 

Thanks,

Savage,

If I want to remove Order & Chaos shards, do I still remove the following files:

XL_2_Shards.xml

XL_4_FaithAir.xml

I saw these much earlier in this post. I don't see A_LHLIB_Arcanium.xml in the A_LHLib folder anymore. Does that file no longer exist?

 

Thanks.

Regarding the Chaos and Order shards, I just thought that I'd remove them since they don't add much. (That was before I knew about the spell % boost.)

I already removed the CoS rivers mod, but thought I'd be safe and remove these also since I play on high magic freq. Not a big deal, I'll just leave it as is.

 

So last night a few of my cities hit the lvl 5 cap and I was wondering if "[eMOD] Level 6 and 7 cities mod v1.0" was still incomparable?

 

My current game is crashing a little more frequently than usual. Is there a way to try and find the culprit, like event logs or something?

 

Thanks.
