Intro! Jackie!! Come, give Uncle a hug!

Hello! I've been playing Disciples since I was a wee lad barely in Elementary School (almost 20 years ago ._.). I was drawn in by the darker setting, beautiful art and fantastic music (I still hum the battle themes in the shower sometimes). I originally started this mod in an attempt to make Disciples 2 more like it's predecessor, Sacred Lands, but over time that idea changed into something completely different.

With some completely revamped units, new leader upgrades, spellbook makeovers and some balance changes, this mod should keep things fresh and exciting.

***

Requirements/Recommended/Installation! This is how I spray for bugs!

To install the mod, simply replace the folders in your Disciples directory with the folders in the zip files. You will only need to download the most recent patch, as this will have all the necessary files for running the mod.

The Mod is compatible with the GoG version of Disciples II: Rise of the Elves as well as the Disciples II: Rise of the Elves Gold CD version (if you still have that ancient relic, like I do). I have tested it with both these versions and it works, but I cannot guarantee it will run with any other version of the game, though it should be fine.

!!! Backup your original Globals folder before replacing it with my mod !!!

***

Changes! Never question the inscriptions!

General:

All experience requirements have been modified (mostly reduced for neutrals, but increased for level 3+ units)

Chance to hit has been reduced across the board (mostly down to 75% from 80%)

Most units no longer receive chance to hit upon level ups

Difficulty settings have been adjusted; enemy AI now have more money at each difficulty level (this allows them to actually purchase their upgrade buildings more often, so you wont see the green plus sign as much)

High tier building costs have been reduced

Units with secondary damage (ex. Poison) have had their level up damage amounts normalized (ex. Imperial Assassin no longer receives 6/6 damage upon level up, but rather 4/4, or 10% of 60/20, as all other units do)

All spellbooks have been tweaked or altered (ex. Tangle is now a level 2 spell, and reduces movement by 50% instead of 30%)

All level 3+ spell research costs have been reduced

A lot of flavor text and weapon names were changed/added. Check 'em out ;)

One more thing! I also brought the antidotes that did -not- work!

THERE WAS A KNOWN ISSUE THAT HAS BEEN RESOLVED. SIMPLY DOWNLOAD THE MOST RECENT VERSION OF THE MOD AND OVERWRITE THE SCENS FOLDER IN YOUR RISE OF THE ELVES DIRECTORY.

***

One MORE thing! Never. Mock. The cookie.

I've listed off everything I could remember that I've changed with my mod. I've been playing it for so long that sometimes I forget what was in the original game and what I introduced, so if there are any things left out, forgive me.

So, try it out! Have fun! Good luck! Conquer! Get killed! Rage! Load Auto-Save! Play more! Order a pizza! Say "Hey this is a pretty cool mod! But I miss the Werewolf, Titan, Fiend and Yeti" Then keep playing it. Then watch some Jackie Chan Adventures. Why? I don't know.

***

ONE MORE THING! See? What have we learned?

If enough people enjoy this mod I might make some tweaks to it based on popular recommendations.

I like few ideas not seen before:
1. rod planter for Mountain Clans is an original idea
2. Guild Lords changes (price reduction and Incorruptible)
3. Starting abillities for Leaders
4. Exorcists instead of Elementalist
5. An idea for faster regeneration for demonical mages
6. Mountains Clan mages tree experiments

Those are inspiring.

I like also incorporating well known good ideas like:
1. reducing the price of the leaders
2. swapping Titan for Living Armour
3. Kraken change

I do not like:
1. removing 1% for Chance to Hit per level
2. very deep changes in units

Comment:
Adding any other source of an attack to the Undead Hordes makes the Liche Queen less important.

From what I have read it looks as a very interesting mod.

Yeah I always thought there needed to be more differences between the Lord types, and giving up an all-hitter for a summoner just never made sense to me. Happy you like most of the changes there though dude :)

In regards to CtH, I did it because I always thought it was the weakest option in the original game for any kind of spell/leader upgrade/potion. Most of the time, when your people have leveled up and have their 89%+ accuracy it makes spells like Holy Strength almost a waste to cast.

And the deep changes... I get it. I originally wanted to keep it as vanilla as possible, but over time I decided to really add some variety and change up some units to really make the game feel a little newer.

If you haven't tried it out though, please do! You might be pleasantly surprised with how some of the changes really feel, and how interesting the new choices can really be.

Hmm, have you replaced the Scens folder in the directory with the Scens folder in the mod zip?

Titan has been replaced with the Living Armor, a unit with 30 armor - I also had the idea of doing a change like this in an old mod of mine, I knew it was the right idea.

A couple of days ago I posted a thread at the GOG forums asking if there was a Discord server for the Disciples franchise. The response I got was quite unfortunate, though.

I've been told there's no active community for the Disciples franchise in the West, and while it made me feel a bit sad that this franchise isn't getting the love it deserves, it motivated me to start up something and try to change this situation for the better: I created a Discord server for English-speaking fans so we can talk to each other, set up games and share any content we create for this awesome game.

I know it's in a very rough state right now, but we can make it better over time if we manage to gather a solid and dedicated community.

Here it is: Discord.gg
