Many of the tooltips in faction creation are not working (a tooltip shows, but is devoid of any description).

 

The following traits have no description show up in their mouseover tooltips:

  • Archers
  • Assassin's Tools
  • Binding
  • Cult of a Hundred Eyes
  • Enchanters
  • Axe Mastery (also oddly shows up out of alphabetical order)
  • Great Hammers
  • Light Plate
  • Masterwork Chainmail
  • Wanderlust

I've made a work around for those and many other missing  <Provides> entries from CoreAbilities.xml.

I just finished remaking this file, testing so far is good, some improvements could be done (The Decalon doesn't even mention the books.)

What is the fix, aside from your file modifications?  I can't find one anywhere.

Hi jstein4716,

There was a link to it in another reply, I believe it was on nexusmods. I'll look for a link or update mine and post it.

Note: my code above was both meant to be it's own file in the mod directory, and it's  beta as I haven't gotten any feedback (logical since it was a duplicate solution.)

 

Bem
