  1. Also, here's an example from global.gamedatabundle, with a script that runs on Game Start (seems to be the Berath Blessing for the mythical adra stone) { "$type": "Game.GameData.NewGameBonusGroupGameData, Assembly-CSharp", "DebugName": "18_Mythical_Discovery", "ID": "83db9af0-fefc-4c63-b3d8-90b7124259e3", "Components": [ { "$type": "Game.GameData.NewGameBonusGroupComponent, Assembly-CSharp", "DisplayString": 61, "DescriptionString": 62, "DisabledAchievementsAndChallengesIDs": [], "WhenToRunScripts": "OnGameStart", "Bonuses": [ { "DisplayString": -1, "Cost": 30, "ScriptsToRun": [ { "Data": { "FullName": "Void SetGlobalValue(String, Int32)", "Parameters": [ "bb_mythical_discovery", "1" ], "Flags": "", "UnrealCall": "", "FunctionHash": 1935477378, "ParameterHash": -563393718 }, "Conditional": { "Operator": 0, "Components": [] } } ], "SpriteIcon": "gui/images/ingamehud/newgamebonuses/bb_mythicaldiscovery.png" } ], "IsChallenge": "false" } ] },
  2. I think a good starting point would simply be the Watcher Abilities. Check how the first one we get is delivered (has to be via a script or at character generation), and walk down from there
  3. OK I just spent waaaayyy too much time trying to change an ability to a Free Action in turn-based. I'm not sure if you know how, so just in case to save you the time : Whether you've got yourself a free action is stored in the Attack definition of the ability. What's a bit tricky is, by default, it's a combination of the attack variation and recovery time You can override it, just like so : { "GameDataObjects": [ { "$type": "Game.GameData.AttackMeleeGameData, Assembly-CSharp", "DebugName": "Smoke_Veil_Self", "ID": "c114f495-e7cb-4be4-b70b-e71c9f9c51af", "Components": [ { "$type": "Game.GameData.AttackBaseComponent, Assembly-CSharp", "OverrideTacticalActionType": "Free" } ] } ] } Documentation over here : https://eternity.obsidian.net/game-data-formats/components#attackbasecomponent
  4. I'm looking the docs all over, for a mod request (make smoke cloud a free action), and I stumbled upon this which might be of interest to you : https://eternity.obsidian.net/game-data-formats/enumerations#overrideattackvalue OverrideAttackValue lets you force the type of attack you're triggering, be it full, primary, or secondary. Just thought I'd drop that.
  5. Hello guys, Remember the old Baldur's Gate days where your monk would gain Armor Class with levels ? Now you can do the very same here in Deadfire. Transcendent Suffering now provides +1 universal Armor Rating at level 1, with a further +1 bonus every 2 Power Levels hereafter. I have not modded the inability for Monks to wear armor, whether you want to play your monk naked à la Baldur's Gate or not is your decision. Mod over here : https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1677798476
  6. Hello guys, I like Monks in POE and POE2. They have OK tankishness, good CC and shine in prolonged combat. While I can understand the balance issue at hand, I dislike Mortification, which prevents me from using an ability all throughout the fight. This mod makes Flagellant's Path, Shared Pain and Launching Kick cost Wounds instead of Mortification. The screenshot shows 3 Wounds, but I've tuned it up to 5 Wounds since. Mod over here : https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1677798476
  7. Meh, that is too bad, thought I had something to help you out here
  8. OK I might be totally off here but, let's give it a shot anyway : Why not make the vanilla abilities you wish to remove invisible ? Just like Monastic Unarmed Training when you multiclass a monk with say a barbarian. The abilities still exist, they just aren't displayed and cannot be picked. It seems there is also a RemoveAbilityID which could do the trick, give your class a passive ability at level 1 which removes whatever you want to go away. See here.
  9. 2 challenges I really dislike : - Wael challenge (or is that Skaen ?) : I mean, seriously, one of the key points of the game (for me, at least) is to see big damage numbers. With this challenge they're just gone, I'm Dark Souls'ing it there, it doesn't feel rewarding - Abydon's challenge : I get the whole repairing hardware thing. I actually loved the iron crisis mod for BG1, which made un-enchanted magic items break. Here however, I need to repair 4 times per dungeon on my tank, the hell is that. The repair rate needs to be reduced very much, or higher tier (superb+) equipment needs to be unbreakable. The Abydon's challenge also massively favors classes that aren't so dependent on gear, such as casters and monks. I mean, you could make a wizard and not have to worry about repairing your armor and weapons ever. I like Galawayn's challenge, it definitely adds to the difficulty and tactics dimension. I have mixed feelings about the Eothas challenge. I liked Tyranny's first edict where you need to take the spire before Kyros' day of swords, because after that the game let me play at my pace.
  10. I like your reasoning, I dislike your "gods are amoral" bias though Whosoever decides what is moral and what is not ? Whosoever is so self-important they think themselves judge ? The "gods" saw an opportunity for evolution, to become something more, and they took it. Did this opportunity come at a cost ? Possibly. Was that cost worth it ? Possibly. Was it done in service to the greater good ? Possibly (the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few ; in some cultural or political constructs). Is murdering an innocent in cold blood to save millions worth it ? Possibly (see the whole Terminator/Skynet uprising timeline for more on that) Is it moral however ? Again, possibly; that depends what values your morality system is based on. I see nothing amoral or amiss here, all the more so when morality is an abstract and subjective concept It is amoral, and blessedly punishable by death, to cross or otherwise displease our Overlord Kyros.

  11. Going to necro an old thread here, for the sake of my fellow Watchers. Anyone wishes to do so, you can possibly swap grimoire spells with the Unity Console mod, available over at the Nexus : https://www.nexusmods.com/pillarsofeternity2/mods/2 The console works just fine on version 4.1.2 (although I haven't tried editing grimoires, I just respec) although some features aren't available anymore since 3.0
  12. Hello everyone, Tired of spending a non-renewable resource on your Swift Strikes ? Thanks to mortimermcmire's quick and efficient guide, I was able to make Swift Strikes, Lightning Strikes and Swift Flurry cost 1 Wound instead of 1 Mortification. I've only tested it for roughly 10 mins (because it's kinda 2AM here and I'm gonna have to work tomorrow at some point ) but it does seem to work just fine, and it doesn't appear to override changes brought by other mods such as Make Swift Flurry Great Again. Mod's over there, enjoy https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1675965527
  13. Well that was concise and efficient. Thanks to you I've finally been able to make Swift Strikes cost Wounds instead of Mortification Anyone interested, the mod's over there : https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1675965527 It's 2AM so I'm gonna sign off, but it didn't seem to cause any problem in the 10 mins of testing I gave it.
