Variant Classes
« on: April 07, 2017, 11:48:35 AM »
Mod Description
In a nutshell, this is a collection of many class mods found in Steam. The purpose is simply to provide the latest class compilation mod with fully working classes. It's due to the fact that existing class compilation mods were mostly outdated and/or somewhat buggy. Also to provide a way for non-Steam user to enjoy these classes.

All credit goes to the respective author of the mods, but only some permission were granted. If you're the mod author and wishes for your class to be removed, pm me and we could discuss.

Special thanks to @gytfunke, @Phanjam and @doudley for sharing their modding knowledge that helped me to create this mod.

Changelogs
Spoiler
Current version - v7 (July 20th, 2017)

General changes
- Theolentist's Insect Plague crash is fixed.
- Dragoon's Piercing Talon should display the correct skill icon now.
- Applied different GUID to Theolentist's Anaerobic Acolytes to prevent it from crashing.
- Fixed missing animations for Legionary's skills.
- Reimplemented original hairstyle/hair color/faces option for Preacher. Note that they may slightly overlap with the new options from Preacher's Skin Addon.
- Fixed missing bind scrolls for Theolentist's Sepulcher skill.
- Theolentist's Favor : Electron Veil level 1-4 can now be cancelled by Dispel Aura.

Ember Sage changes
- The skill called Flaming Bats is removed. It is replaced with an entirely new skill,
called Fire Orb. If you have any skill points into Flaming Bats, respec them out to avoid losing skill points.
- Fixed Ice Spikes as it wasn't inflicting damage correctly.
- Tweaked a bunch of skills, some are given better effects or better tier bonus. Some tooltips are rewritten and corrected for clarification purpose.

Important notes
Spoiler
- Some of these classes are intended to be really powerful by their original authors and can clear the base game easily even at Elite/Hardcore difficulty. The use of difficulty mods like Synergies or LAO III are highly recommended. Although I might have to rebalance these classes at some point in the future.. if there's a request for it.
- Dark Hunter (originally from Noxmer/Darklite class) is removed due to being incomplete.
- Warchief's old starting skill, Shockwave, is restored. Massive Swing is removed as a result.
- Implemented new character creation UI. Credit to lolesch, taken from his neat UI mod.
- Enabled every hairstyles/hair colors/faces option to all classes in this mod.
- Elemental Blade Dancer and Red Mage should no longer crashes the game for Linux user.
- If you found any skills that crashes the game upon usage, please notify us. This is most likely because the skill shares the same GUID as another .dat files found in other mods that you use. Sadly, due to sheer number of mods out there, this issue can never be truly resolved..

Known issues
Spoiler
- Monk : Solar Wind is possibly not activating at all.
- Missing tags from some skills that might affect them from functioning properly.
- Incompatible with Darkthan's Classes. Loading certain class will causes the game to crash.
- Conflict with Far East Pack 1/2, but they're still partially compatible. Just don't play Variant's Monk class/FEP's Warrior Monk if you load these mods together.
- Minor conflict with TL2 Essentials. Load Variant higher than Essentials for better compatibility.
- Red Mage and Theolentist class are reportedly to crash the game for Mac users.

FAQ
Spoiler
Q - Would you merge more class into this mod pack?
A - Depends. Basically any class mod that rehash skills from vanilla classes and the author doesn't even bother to modify the skill affixes, skill names nor the descriptions.. will be automatically denied.

List of classes that I've denied so far
- Someone Else's thematic classes (Isaz, Flamma.. and the rest)
- Futurist
- Electrical Engineer
- Guardian
- Wanderer
- Demon Classes
- Reaver
- Arcane Blade
- Thaumaturge
- The WoW Class Collection
- Otaku Fighter
- Shadowmancer


I may consider to compile these classes into another mod pack if there are a lot request for them.

Q - Nothing happened when I try to use Druid's Wolf Strike. Help!
A - You'll need to face a targetable unit (monster/dps dummy) for the skill to work.

Reminder :
It is not advised to unpack this mod as it will break the tags/codes of some skills. GUTS will throw a bunch of errors e.g  "found property name with a hashcode XX that has no match in tags. dat" during the unpacking process. That error is called broken tags.

Broken tags can cause a certain aspect in a mod to be.. well, broken. If a broken tags occurs in a skill code, it can possibly renders the skill to be malfunction, or even crashes the game.

Hey @Viz! Can you screenshot each class in the mod, while mouse-overing its portrait? Upload it in RGF and I'll download them there then upload them at steam. ;)

Okay, done. Also Blade Dancer is pretty much Elemental Blade Dancer.

If anyone ask about the font used, its not included in the mod. The name of the font mod is
DroidLight.

Congratulations Viz! Your compilation mod looks like a lot of work and well done too. Keep it up  8)
Thanks Phan!

Edit : I missed one screenshot, Red Mage.

Info about the font has been added on Steam.

Also, we should open a topic regarding Linux compatibility using class mod packs like this.

This is awesome. So many classes.

How do you think a mod like this would work being merged into LAO III?  Good idea/bad idea?

@doudley I downloaded and tested the Steam version of the mod.. and I got a bad news.

Some of the old bugs keeps popping back.
It seems that this mod can't be decompiled as it would break some of the skills and causes missing tags again. :(

@RnF Probably not a good idea due to above issues.

Edit : If you want, I could probably.. sent you the Media folder of Variant v4 and let you compile it and upload to Steam.

Are you interested in adding more classes? People in Steam are intrigued by your mod pack, your subscribers has skyrocketed since the day I uploaded it. ;D

Also, is the mod pack has no issues with multiplayer mode?

Are you not interested with the works of Darkthan?

Depends on what class. If its a class that reuses every existing vanilla skills (usually the mod is less than 1mb) then probably no.

I'm interested in adding the Plaguelord but I can't seem to pinpoint what's the forget spell issue is about.

I never tested the mod in multiplayer.. or even using Synergies with it. 

Darkthan's classes? No. The conflict with Wildling and Plaguelord is likely because he uses some of those classes skill into his own classes.  Fixing those is gonna be complicated, just like fixing Far East Expansion.
