Median XL: Sigma


Something that has for long been a myth for many people (including myself) is finally coming together. I'll try to explain what sigma is and what makes it so special, as well as some of the new changes / paradigms involved in it. Median XL: Sigma is basically a co-op project between the entire Median XL team. But... what exactly makes this patch any different to other ones?

It uses an enhanced engine. To briefly explain this, imagine Diablo II as an old building with people living in it. What median does is, change the people living in it, their clothes, etc. It adds new people with new patches and it removes people who behave badly. But there are limitations, some rooms have too many people in them, and things can get messy. The enhanced engine (or core, from now on) is the main feature of sigma, and what this does is replace the stairs with elevators, makes the rooms bigger, and a lot of other things that would normally not be possible.


Core Features

  • So, there are a lot of new features that are possible thanks to this new core. For example:
    Increased game resolution
  • Addition of extra areas (*)
  • Addition of new affixes / stats
  • Improved Interface
  • Bounty System (similar to D3)
  • Automatic gold pick-up
  • In-game drop filter
  • Time events

(*) Ever wondered why Median replaces existing areas rather than adding new ones? Or why does act 4 have no uberquests? This is because of a limitation that doesn't allow you to add new areas to the game. This, however, will be possible in sigma.

And so much more. You can check this Forum.median-xl.com topic to see some of the core patch features. Note that a lot of it is a bit techy, but you will see some of these features reflected as comprehensive changes in the changelog when the time comes. Plus, if you don't like reading, you might as well check Forum.median-xl.com topic to see some cool screenshots.

I'm wondering, how do you change the colors of item qualities? I want to figure out if you can do it via hex editing (and how), or if you can do it via D2 Excel editing, and which file to edit to do so with.

I ask because I badly want to make the Unique color, or Rare color not suck total crap and be really similar to one another by making one or the other Red or some specifically different color in color in mods other than this one.

what about bringing back the original rune set like the one from brothers from hell. when i read the documentation i was a little bummed when i saw that a zod was not indistructible and a cham was not cannot be frozen. those are two of the best runes ever. that would make uber quest areas be a little more fun to play. PEACE!
