Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

The given gold total was without benefit of 99% of the level 1 loot: too much trouble to collect it and cash it in. I'm pretty sure that I've gotten everything currently available (didn't even singe my beard :shock: ), hence the sword reference. The loot will be much better in the next update. Did ...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

You can portal to another portal within the same map and it works - see the teleporter puzzle in the Sanctum mod. But if you map_port to a location on another map with a map_port script back, it triggers immediately upon arrival and you get the loop MM described. Thanks! Hm. I wonder how that worke...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

Stepping on the quick travel point in Bastion Spire puts the program into an endless loop cycling between the Spire and Humfrey's tower. Requires Ctrl-Alt-Del to get to the task manager which has to force Eschalon to end. Yeah, I just noticed that too while I was testing one of my new maps tonight....

Re: Book III Mod: The Mystery of Rockhammer Mine

Thanks for the Mod! This was a really fantastic one. All the locations utilizing spot hidden was really great and so was the overall layout of the levels. The library the different locations in the city.. kudos!! I really like the additional story too. These types of mods really add a lot to the ga...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

I am playing through this now -- it's the size of a whole game! More when I've visited all the secret nooks and crannies. I know, right? It's amazing. Hehe, yeah this turned out to be a lot bigger than I originally intended. I was trying to make it feel like an epic journey, and I think I got carri...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

I wonder if I can have a hint about access to the 3 rooms in Humfrey's place? I found one of the three destinations, entered the correct code, but the destination door remains closed. Do I have to traipse back to the magician's tower? Many thanks in advance for hints - outright spoilers are fine, t...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

I can't enter the dungeon at 91,173 in Western Thaermore. The second two tombstones open gates correctly, but the first doesn't seem to. This actually isn't a bug. There are 3 chests that are aligned with the 3 tombstones. The sayings on the tombstones indicate the necessary state of the correspond...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

I found the first quick travel point, in Icewall. I used the correct combination but the door won't open. That's interesting. It says I've set it to the correct combination, and the lock springs open, but the door won't open. I'll have to look at that. Thanks! Edit: found the problem - the door sta...

Re: Any chance of an official expansion?

Wow, thanks for the nice plug, SpottedShroom! It isn't quite finished yet, but it is quite playable and you can finish it. I should make some decent progress on it this weekend while the wife is out of town. Regarding the original question, there are several nice Book III mods that extend the gamepl...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

After a little break, I've started working on it again. I fixed all the bugs reported so far. I also fixed the loot level on many of the bodies, cabinets, chests, etc. (I had misread the tooltip for the loot level field - it says for a 0 value that it is "appropriate to your class", but I thought it...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

More notes as I explore. It's possible to walk through the wagon outside the Trusty Sword Tavern in Western Midlande. Oops! Good catch! Thanks! The door at 74, 115 in Western Midlande is broken. When you click it, it turns into a wall instead of opening, and you can walk through it when it looks cl...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

I think you misunderstood. You can always blast through fences, whether or not they're marked destructible. I just figured from the text cue that you wanted people to find the side entrance. Ah, I get it. Yes, that was the intent of the cue, but I didn't realize you could blast through fences. Now ...

Re: Book II Mod: Return to Bastion Spire

Are you meant to be able to access the Middleton Ranch with a powder keg? I see you can also go around to where the fence is already broken. No. My idea was for players to look for another way in, namely through the broken fence. I put a bit of narrative near the gate, if you walk up to it, that te...
