"POC" - I guess we are behind proofing now ;) It is a concept we can work on!
Okay senpai i understand now what you meant :D I'll leave it here though, since it is a spin-off of the base classless concept.  Thanks!

Do you have the lure of ember files? the skill menu there had an horizontal scroll bar and as much as I try I cant set it up. Only vertical works... I would like to have a look in that menu file. the code should be all i need...

Lure of Ember unpacked MEDIA folder

In case it doesn't have what you need, @gytfunke 's original post to share the files is here.  He placed his Lure of Ember .MOD file on RGF.

Sorry, false alarm!!!

I tried reverting back to an earlier version of the mod and it seemed to fix the problem (tho i don't really know what caused it ::):-[ sorry to bother!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
well it seems i managed to screw-up the display of the curtain behind the stats panel :D

for some reason, the curtain now extends beyond the right edge of the stats panel...


bad curtain!
when just the stats panel is open...


when both stats and skills panel are open...


I did modify the .MESH and textures used for the right curtain and for a while it worked fine.  But now it seems the left curtain is affected somehow  >:(

@lolesch i can't seem to figure out what i did wrong.  If okay with you, i posted the mod files in the shared DropBox folder and can I ask for some of your time to look inside pls?  Hope it's okay and thanks either way! ;)

Hey @Phanjam
Most likely you messed up with the banner not linked to the timeline. The timeline will offset it and let it slide in when a menu is visable. If this is broken the banner wonít be offset.

You mentioned some other problems..?
Not sure about how much time I can offer this WE so detailed questions might be better then having me testing things in game.

Im looking forward for your banner modifications! The only thing I was changing was the image - linked here

I still struggle wich the design for my skills map. Maybe I can get some progress by keeping it simple for now. Hope to give you some update soon
Cheerio

Thanks v much for that timeline tip @lolesch ! I will look into that to add itto my learning ;) that was basically the only problem i got.

Oh that banner artwork is really beautiful lolesch, it's going to look really great!

I finshed one tree finally! the "Fighter" tree.

TQ Skilltree Mod, 2017-12-16

I am kind of tired of my mod right now, so i'd be happy to help with your skill designing.  I'll visit your thread to see what kind of help i can offer :)

I finshed one tree finally! the "Fighter" tree.

Hey phanjam, I've played your mod and its quit fun! I love that shovel in the beguinning. Skills seem a little overpowered (wich was part of the fun) though I felt like I have wasted skillpoints after reaching the requirement for the II tier skill. Although I like the setup it feels poor on rewarding higher character level. when you hit that last skill you can opt it out but there's nothing to aim for after that...

Ideas: I'd give a bonus to the II and III tier skills based on how many skillpoints you spent on the lover tier skill. I personally dont like to use too many skills and I felt glad to replace a skill with the better one! but the tree has low variety to specialize in (1h vs 2h - lifesteal vs damage reduction...)
I think this way you can "only" choose between being a fighter or some other "class", nothing really decisional to choose from within the "fighter" tree.
enough of critic! ;) in total it is a solid system.

Bug: The top row III tier skill has an error I think. when you hit level 2 the damage is 24 or so. when you hit lvl 3 the damage is 138 and goes back low on lvl 4 invested in that skill...

EDIT: I run this before your update, "melee accuracy" was not included...
EDIT2: the button flashes are strange! Shall I go check what causes this anomaly?

Thanks @Sch123 yes im just copying that skill system :)

Thanks so much for the feedback @lolesch  ! I know the skill "flashes" youre talking about :D i was actually okay with them already, but if it bothers the perfectionist in you, pls be my guest to change it! :D

I'll fix the skill bug u mentioned, thanks. Also the curtain problem came back in my latest build  >:( but im sure i didnt touch any timeline! I'll try to fix-learn it ;)

Im in the middle of the Caster skilltree in the "tq-style skills" mod. So far i have projectile skills (fireball, etc) and aoe skills and i will add some elemental shields and missile reflect shield and an escape skill like teleport.  I broke the attack skills up into elements to allow specialization in one or more of them if the player desires. Training passives are also available per element.

The damage mechanics are all flat DOTs atm, but im using the training skills as damage bonus modifiers. So if u invest in "fire training" then damage from fireball goes up much more quickly. Based on feedback in the discord i may change damage to instant to allow crits then add debuffs for lingering effects.

Training on an element will have the damage bonus benefit for any skill based on that element, and will even add some elemental damage to melee attacks (so u can build a battlemage frinstance). Ultimately i plan to have "reward skills" for maxing out a training element.

Thats for the caster tree. I finished a "fighter" tree (melee specialization) first bcos im more familiar with that.

Other trees in the plan:

Defender (shields and survivability)
Animancer (undead and spirit summons)
Engineer (mechanical summons)
Ranger (ranged weaps)
Rogue (speed and dualwielding)

Wow, If this is complete, then there will be classes with all the existing tree classes in one class. Cool  :o
