Modding Discussions / Displaying a stat on a skill description
« on: March 18, 2015, 11:18:39 pm »
Ok, here is another question.

For item triggers, I can display a stat on the item by using this:


When I attempt to utilize the same method for a skill, it does not reveal the stat amount. It just says <stat:kingslayercount> in the skill description. Any ideas?

Wow I keep putting my posts in the wrong area. Oh well.

Ok, so I wanted to change one of my Myrmidon's skills to work as follows:

Marathon - Right click to run in target direction. As you run, your speed will continuously increase. Once you cease running, your next 15 attacks have their damage and speed increased by how far you ran.

Everything works perfectly except this one issue. In order to count the steps you take, I need to set the stat CHARACTER STEPS TAKEN to 0. I have set it up as a predefined int and it applies the bonuses at the end of the effect properly, but any attempts to set it to 0 or subtract numbers from it do not work.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Charge system: Hubris
Whenever a God skill is used, hubris is generated. As hubris increases, your hero gains additional benefits offensively and defensively. If hubris reaches max, your character is penalized and weakened drastically for one minute. Hubris does not decay over time but there is an innate % chance on killing enemies to reduce your hubris.
Lore: In Greek Mythology, Nemesis was the spirit of divine retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the deities).

Skill Trees:

Here's a brief summary of what I'm working on so far:

3 new classes:
1. Myrmidon
2. Einherjar
3. Pharaoh

New world beyond ACT4 that integrates an open-world concept (example: elder scrolls games) and incorporates 3 regions and their corresponding mythologies.
1. Midgard/Valhalla
2. Aegina/Olympus
3. Egypt/Duat

New items associated with the cultural mythology theme.

Decision making system that allows the player to affect the story and their position within it.

Story-Arc skill tree: Decisions/Quests in the story provide an ability to unlock skills on a unique skill tree. Not all options will be accessible and will be determined by a chosen path.

New item level-up system:
1. Certain 'Mythical' items will be given this property. Basically, the item has criteria it must achieve in order to level-up and obtain new stats (a modification of the augmentation system). Once the first level-up is a achieved, a new criteria is placed on the item in order to achieve the next level-up. There will be numerous types of criteria including but not limited to: kills, hits, crits, stuns, being hit, being crit, completion of certain quests, etc. Here are some image examples of a test item I previously posted some information about:

Images reveal random stat value properties as well. No item will have the exact same stats. Here's the initial item:

Mastery I achieved:

Mastery II achieved:

More regions and corresponding mythologies and mythological-based classes will be added later.

I originally had 4 classes and 4 regions, but with how slow my development has gone thus far, I trimmed it back a bit and put some other stuff off until later.

My intention is to get the classes finished up first and then begin working on the regions and stuff. I've already added about 30 new weapon models and a couple armor models into the mod as well.
