Great work, just a few things. The spear of bitter mercy is waaaaaay too big. Idk if that was intentional or what but it's like the size of a truck. I replaced the mesh to correct it, but by default it's massive.

Secondly I wanted to edit a lot of the spell and enchantments in rebirth but have issues loading it up in the cs. Tons of warnings beyond the standard dialogue ones that are to be expected. Not sure what the issue is there but it has made me hesitant to make any changes.

With the above being mentioned perhaps you can get around to correcting the issue yourself in the next version. Primarily the drain magic effect does not function as it is described in the CS so most uses of it are useless in both vanilla and rebirth. It has wonderful potential as a temporary debuff or "threshold" killer for low health enemies, but the magnitudes and durations are all off for the default spells to be of any use. A lot of the durations and magnitudes on other spells also leave much to be desired, and I really want to edit these and balance them for multiplayer but for the life of me cannot figure out why the CS is getting so upset with your mod.

Edit: all the errors are object references, are these safe to ignore?

Hi Ducade!

Yes the mesh is way too big, but I'm quite certain I removed it from the archive in 4.3.

Is that so? I'm not really sure what kind of warnings, but I usually press cancel to ignore all warnings. Haven't had any issues so far with object references either.

I'll check the drain spells, and see what can be done. Most likely won't be included in the hotfix I plan to release, but in 4.4 for sure.

Thanks!
