(Book II Mod) Port Kuudad Tower - Now Open

Post by raverdave2k » January 17th, 2012, 11:27 am

I've been playing with xolotl's map editor again and have made a little mod that opens up the tower in Port Kuudad with a couple of floors to explorer and a custom weapon in there to find.

To install just extract the zipfile below into your save game folder, for me using the steam version on Windows 7 this was "C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Basilisk Games\Book 2 Saved Games\" and then the appropriate slot.

Latest Version: Port Kuudad Tower v1.07

CAUTION

While this mod can be installed and used with an existing character please be aware that the Port Kuudad map will be reset to it's default state.

This will have the following side effects:
  • If Citizen Writ has already been presented you will no longer beable to access Port Kuudad using this method.
  • If you have already opened the archives in Lockston Hall you will not be able to enter that area anymore.
  • All containers in the map will be reset to there default content so move anything you don't want to loose.

Enjoy :)

Just done another run through of this myself and found a few bugs that I'll be looking to fix this afternoon.

The main one being and food items I've placed within the tower are not currently editable despite showing the option to consume when highlighted.

The rest are really just typo's.

Worth noting that this is really supposed to be incorparated into a new game, if you put this into a save game in which you have alredy entered Port Kuudad then then the gate will have reclosed and the guards will not give the option to present your citizens writ again so you will have to use the sewers or invisibility potion methods of entering the town. If you had not previously entered with a citizens writ then you will be able to use it as normal to enter.

Just uploaded two updated versions at once.

v1.02 - Changes any mention of Councillor to Chancellor to match some built in dialog and also add's an exit from the tower into the sewers.

v1.03 - I though maybe just having a custom sword would be unfair to all those who play different classes to I have now added a custom weapon for Sword, Bow, Cleaving, Bludgeoning, Thrown and Unarmed Combat.

Do you think I should add some goodies for those playing a mage or does having six weapons to sell make up for that?

I'm also very much looking forward to a toolset, but if I'm correct release of that is not to be expected with the first release of Book III, but later.

Actually, I already have a few ideas - the bigger issue is whether I'll ever actually have time to put map/mods together... :?

It is, in fact, how Basilisk Games came to be.

Looking forward to this. I'm about 2/3 of the way done with a charachter now. Do I understand correctly that you start a new charachter and then save the game and then copy the mod files to the saved game folder? The mod will then transfer to subsequent saved games for that charachter.?

Yes thats right, create your character and save the game, quite back to the main menu then copy the files in and reload.

The reload step is important as the maps / character file are stored in a temp folder when running and that folder is copiedto the appropriate slot each time you hit save which would delete the mod files if you didn't reload first.

Just uploaded version 1.04 which fixes the corrupted display of the mini map when in the new / edited maps.

Anyone already playing can just copy the .opq files from the archive into there save slot to fix the problem, the .map and .ent files do not need to be changed.
