Apparently I test things.

Future Research Priorities

I'm interested to hear what people think I should research, or what is more useful/important. Currently, I think my heap of stuff to do looks like this:

  • Current: Finish repel mechanics (should be nearly there!)
  • Affliction healing mechanics, from healer, twiceborn, call god, immortals…
  • Call god: path changes and number of holy levels
  • Heroic abilities: relative chances
  • Chance of bodyguards showing in assassinations
  • Normal and throne independent poptypes
  • National freespawn mechanics + reanimation
  • MA ctis dominion effect
  • Cataclysm mechanics: what causes the random attacks, and by what…
  • The majority of the spells in the links below for which the yellow text doesn't exist or is ambiguous (if/when I get here I'll prioritise these)
  • Paused: enter for fame and adventure sites (I did enough on this to know that the number of entries affects both loot and the types/damage done by the different trap types, but they are so rare, why bother?)

In no particular order, probably to do around the same time as the spells?

  • Insanity, shattered soul possible action chances
  • Old age + growth/death: disease chances and age modification
  • How much affliction resistance does regen give you?
  • Reincarnation
  • Picking up magic items
  • Curse: effect on affliction rates and how it stacks with affliction resistance

Complete-ish research

Reverse engineering

Side note: everything in this section is based on my INTERPRETATION of disassembled code. This is somewhat error prone, I do not expect to be correct on everything in this section.

Due to not wanting to make cheating or doing other questionable stuff to the game, I'm not publically providing much if any code for this.

Notes for Inspector

(outside of my dom5utils PR)

Unhindered is x% to negate certain afflictions, the boots seeem to have a value of 75%

What it would be nice for the spell template to look like?

But if only there weren't so many redlinks
