Hmm, okay, from now on, send me ideas via email. My email is Sheercold33@hotmail.com :)

Anyways, all ideas are possible except the last one. I cannot have two separate cow levels BUT I can have a separate area for killing cows... Say Tamoe Highland or something for regular cows, and the secret cow level for the Uber Cows.

1st idea would be simple enough. The 2nd idea you listed doesn't make much sense. I'm supposing you meant the stash (not cube)? I'd have to check into this one, but I'm sure it's possible.
3rd idea is possible but I made it random for people who would like to create runewords. I could add a different recipe for that. Maybe Item + SoH + Zod Rune? (or a lower rune?)
4th idea's simple, not much trouble with that.
5th idea I'm sure is possible but it may be hardcoded into the game to execute the Whirlwind as an attack instead of say a missile or alike. For missiles, you can control the speed and velocity at which they scroll across the screen, for attacks, you cannot. It's all based on Increased Attack Speed and Run and Walk Speed.
6th idea is possible but more Magic Items will drop. If an item doesn't have a set version, magics are the fallback item type. If an item doesn't have a unique version, rares are the fallback for those. However, I can allow chests and such to always drop sets (magics will drop if the item has no set version).

I also have an idea for SoHs to make them easier to get. I'm not going to give away any of the ideas but believe me, it's brilliant and will definitely make the game more interesting :)

And I have an idea why your characters are corrupting.. You mentioned you have Hero Editor 1.03. Zonfire released 1.04 for the newest version of Diablo and it works fine with my characters. I haven't had a crash yet. You can get the latest on ladderhall.com.

Hmm, I don't see how it's not. Still a modification. Items remain perfect. Just there's a new element playing a factor in the playability of the mod. It's a twist to get it more appealing to the mind. I'm redoing the drops for the next version to get a good balance of drops between Magics, Rares, Set and Uniques instead of primarily Unique and Rare drops. Chests will drop Gems and Runes and possibly rings, charms and amulets as well.

Ok. Yeah, i get a few rares but they are always lvl 24+ even when im level 1. Does your mod accept battle.net runewords, if your wrote that it does I probably just missed it ahaha.

Alright, cool. Chest thing for set items is okie dokie with me.

The regular cow idea sounds good with it being in another area. I like killing cows.

Can't wait for another version.

Sorry, in idea 2, I meant "stash" when I said higher the gold limit from 2.5 mill to a much higher one. Didn't mean Cube; my bad.

No problem, but it's not possible on my part. It's hardcoded... Anyways, I added the new version. Test it out. I found no problems so far, but anything can happen. Going to take a break from this for awhile now, haha.

I'm really enjoying the mod so far! Great work! I have a few questions though.

1. At what level would you expect to finish each difficulty without going out of your way to level or doing item runs?

2. What determines the success rate of the new cube recipes? I've noticed that more often than not, this recipe does not work: "any item + town portal scroll (no SoH) -> unique version of that item (NORMAL items only! This will make anything from exceptional items, elite items, etc. Rare quality. Only the original items will be available this way)"
I've tried using this on normal items. The first time I try to make a specific unique, it tends to work, but afterwards, it won't allow me to make another copy of that unique? Is this intended? I also have little to no success making unique rings with this recipe.

Sheer_Cold Feb 27 2011, 7:38pm replied:


1. Normally, you would end up finishing each difficulty at these levels:

Normal: 35 - 45
Nightmare: 55 - 65
Hell: 70 - 80

On the mod, it's a little different, could be anywhere around these

Normal: 40 - 60
Nightmare: 70 - 80
Hell: 85 - 90

Take into consideration this is through doing quests the normal way, killing monsters that barricade the player's way and by having the # of players set to 8.

Unique items only drop once per item version for the game you're in. What determines this is the maximum item level. The highest normal unique in the game is 39. So I set that as the cap for the cube recipe. Any Exceptional or Elite item transmuted without a SoH will result in a rare quality instead of unique. If you have a Normal version item turned into a rare quality using this cube recipe, exit and remake a game and try the recipe again.
As for rings and amulets, most of them have a higher level requirement than 39. The Stone of Jordan should be a success though, but if the random roll calls to create a Bul-Kathos' ring or a Wisp ring, it will turn out as a rare. Nothing can be done to fix this, sorry. I can reduce the level requirements (not item level) of the items but this will throw off the drop rates slightly. Meaning, it will be possible to find Dwarf Stars, Cat's Eyes, etc from monsters in Normal difficulties.

I only have the 1 unique per game limit on to increase the number of rares. Unless, however, you believe it should be limitless on the uniques (kind of pointless since all uniques are exactly the same), let me know.

bignickm27 Feb 28 2011, 7:02pm replied:

Ok that makes sense about the uniques then. ^_^

I do have one issue with the mod so far though. Practically every rare that drops has such a high required level that none of my new characters can use anything they find.

So I've just settled for using low level uniques, which is fine I guess. It's a problem though for equipment which has no unique version, like most class-specific items. This makes it impossible for my sorc to use an orb early game. Even using the stamina potion recipe to make the item normal, they still never spawn with anything lower than lvl 18 skills. Could you add another recipe to help spawn lower-lvl/tier items for use in early game?

Richardf269 Feb 28 2011, 2:22pm replied:

I'd say "just a slightly higher" setting for the unique recipe thing. Maybe two per game instead of just 1?

By the way, I think I found out why the editor was screwing up chars. It's the items that are changed through the SoH from Normals->Exceptionals->Elites, but with the normal Unique title. Such as a Unique Patriarch that was upgraded to an Elite item level with the SoH, but kept the original Unique title/properties. I believe that's what is going on.

I tried creating a new char, and using the character editor, but the editor screwed up my new char, even though he was level 1 and brand new.

In order to use the character editor with your mod, the person would have to create a new character without PlugY being used...I think. I haven't tried yet, so that's just a big guess right now.

By the way, Rare Charms don't pop-up very often in Normal difficulty, just thought you'd ought to know. Maybe higher the chance to drop in Normal Difficulty. I didn't go past Act1 in my new char, but I didn't really see more than 1 rare charm drop. Maybe make it 20% or something?

I thought of a couple different idea's the last day or so for the mod you could implement.

1st: You could take away the gold limit in Normal that the shops sell your items at. Maybe you could double it instead of making it disappear.

Richardf269 Feb 28 2011, 2:24pm replied:

2nd: Not sure if you're able to do this or not, but maybe you could also take away (or much it much higher) the cube's money limit. Right now it's only 2.5 million gold. Maybe you could make it few hundred million? I like to sell stuff at the shops and just collect money for it myself.

3rd: Since your mod's title is "Perfect Drop Mod", you could make the "SoH+item=random sockets" be max all the time, instead of random. Not that it matters all that much to me though, just a thought for ya. Other people might like it that way, then you could maybe release a version with that option put in, and a different version without it. I'd prefer to have it set as random myself, though.

4th: I'm not sure how much effort you'd have to put into this one: More bosses in Normal Difficulty. That'd be fun to have to kill a higher amount of bosses, but again, I have no idea how much work you'd have to put into that one.

Richardf269 Feb 28 2011, 2:25pm replied:

5th: Would you be able to change the speed at which the Whirlwind skill moves you based on your walking speed? I find it slightly annoying that my Barb chars move too quickly across the screen when using Whirlwind on my enemies. Not sure if you're able to change that or not. If not, oh well, it's no big deal.

6th: Set items. I'd like to see those drop on the ground, too. I tend to forget what items are in a set, so I never really made items into set items. Just a thought.

That's all I can think up right now. I'll think of some more later.

Also, just to let you know, when you updated to Gamma, the cows in the usual cow level (Wirt's leg and TP book), the cows suddenly have too much going for them. Your "antidote potion" way of creating the portal suddenly went to the regular way. It wasn't like that before. The way it was before was that if I created it normally with the leg and TP book, the cows were as they used to be. I was wondering if you did that on purpose, or if that was by mistake, because I wanted to kill cows with the regular portal, but since the new update, it changed.

Had to split up my response due to the stupid 2,000 character limit. Bah!

The deal with that recipe is a bit weird. I think it's 1 unique per game. If you want 100% chance, use the recipe, then log out and back in again. I'm not sure if this was done on purpose or not.

The experience for the game is roughly 20x more than normal experience. If you set PlugY to 8 players, the XP is roughly over 400x normal. I have a level 70 Barbarian in the beginning of Hell difficulty right now. I haven't played in the last couple days due to playing other games.
