Skilled Magic Calradia v.0.9.5 (171) by High_priest_of_Ru

for Mount and Blade: Warband 1.171 or newer

Huge map and hardcore gameplay modification with many kinds of magic arts.


BUGFIX:

Not necessarily, try to play first.

1. Use 4GB patch. Look at the PERFORMACE folder and launch this patch. Then choose mb_warband.exe file in your core M&B directory and patch this. If you are using wrong or cracked M&B version (non-approved), then patch all of them. This helps the game to use more RAM.
Will hurt pirate copies of Warband. Ahoy!

2. Cap corpses in game options or even set its number on 0. There are very much summons and very much soldiers in fights, that's why large amount of corpses can hurt weak PC.
Still it shouldn't, because all of items have LODs now.

3. Decrease graphic settings. Many new models are taken from Skyrim and Oblivion, and that will hurt weak PC.
They have LODs. But of you have steam PC, it will be hurted.

If these advice didn't helped, please, report any encountered bugs and crashes to me with private message on MODDB or on following e-mail:
highpriestofru@gmail.com


MAGIC:

Use about 100 spells from 10 magic schools. Each school have from 1 to 3 different magic branches.

a. Arcane magic - cast powerful targeted Mystic Blast or manage ice and fire together (waiting for transferring/development)
b. Elemental Artefaction - Air, Fire, Earth and Ice missiles.
c. Advanced Elemental Magic - deal damage to different areas.
d. Telekinesis - create and manage dancing weapon and damage far located opponents with melee hits.
e. Holy magic - heal all people around.
f. Mental magic - turn NPC into state of fighting with each other or make them your servants.
g. Portal magic - teleport yourself or your opponents for short distance in battle at will.
h. Necromancy - summon great number of weak skeletons up to limit and sustain them.
i. Blood magic - stay near opponents to suck their blood or manage their and your blood.
j. Magic of Illusions - manage movement of opponents and allies and create illusions to fight by your side.

CURRENT PLANS:

1. ULTRA PRIORITY - Creating Arcane magic as magic school which will replace classic magic. Right now Council and Harmony factions are absolutely helpless without their Classic magic.
2. ULTRA PRIORITY - New Auras. Remaining schools: Telekinesis, Necromancy, Arcane Magic.
3. HIGH PRIORITY - Continuing changing logic of magic casting - not casting on firing but casting after long animation or by pressing button. NPC takes their own magical AI, which decides will they use magic or not. This change should apply to all existing magic schools. Right now done: Illusions, Portal.
4. HIGH PRIORITY - Adding all existing spells into SMC UI. Will go parallel previous point because spell UI includes button of casting. Right now done: Illusions, Portal.
5. Ritual magic as a system of magic interactions on the global map.
6. Completing transferring - work on several minor scripts which have been modified by TweakMB to save my time. They will be placed into module system where they were in original MOD.
7. Quest system for mages.
8. Continuing work on Archmagic, including new spells and Archmages among lords of medieval factions(not too hard, but not too high priority).
9. Balance changes and performance increase.


CHANGELOG OF LAST VERSION:

v.0.9.5 (171) - TRANSFERRED INTO WARBAND. Magic of Illusions and 13 its spells (including 6 auras). New magic faction - Magic Academy of Illusions. Reworked Portal Magic - now its really magic with many new items and different logic of casting. Experimental spells' UI. Deleted order panel. 3 auras of Mental magic. 1 new spell of Wild Magic. SPAK items OSP. Bugfixes, performance changes.

1 Description of blood manipulators' daggers is corrected - added distance of casting.
2. Due to several reports about invisible cursor i've deleted this from the MOD. IDK, why this was not work, i had working one on my PC.
3. DUE TO DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ORIGINAL M&B AND WARBAND MANY MINOR CHANGES OF SCRIPTS ARE UNAVAILABLE. YET OR AT ALL.
4. Elemental Aura now is going without rest slot, but as triggered option. This shoulnd't change nothing at all except up performance a little. This change is going as a preparation to transfer modification to Warband, battle slots works not too good there.
5. Blood magic is going by the same way now.
6. Added dueling magic wand of wild magic. It does twice less damage then Wand of Wild magic, have 3 spells before casting instead of 4 and requires 3rd level of advanced elemental magic. Old staff now requires 6th level of this magic skill. Description is addedd/fixeds.
7. Wild mages have got dueling wand, Wild Wizards have better knowledge of Elemental magic.
8. Magic window and unused Magic Wold elements are deleted. Still i am keeping this into credits, Magic World is a parent of Skilled Magic Calradia.
9. Added experimental feature of spell UI for all spells and auras of Portal Magic. Take its artifacts in battle and you will find something new in user interface. Auras and spells are shown by wielding and wearing artifacts.
10. Order panel is deleted due to conflicts with SMC UI and my suggestions about medieval fight without map. You need to scout an opposite army instead of real time seeing. Probably special skill (Mysticism? Divination) will later unlock this panel.
11. Legendary Mentors have white description now because their old red descr was quite hard to read. Abundance of these artifacts is decreased from 100 to 35 as they occupied weapon shops so much.
12. Mental tricks and magic skill now based on charisma instead of intelligence.
13. Fixed MS problem which caused problems with learning reserved skills by NPC.
14. Twice more artifacts in shops.
15. Added Magic school of Illusions - 6 staffs, 6 spells. Mages of this school manages opponents' and allies' speed and creates shadows to fight by their side. There are 2 branches in this magic schools - mages of first blocks opponents movement, and mages of second enhances movement of allies and decreases movement speed of opponents.
16. Elemental Auras are reworked, now Evokers' Auras requires 3 points is Advanced Elemental Magic. Description is updated and is more detailed now.
17. Added 3 new Auras of Mental Magic. These spells checks HP of hear opponents and, of this is bellow threshold, forcing opponents to fight by caster's side.
18. Different Illusions of humans have arrived (and probably later there will be something like illusions of towers, dragons etc).
19. Reworked started courage in battles. Now opponents will not flee after couple of second of battle with magic.
20. Every lord party takes 3 different vampires instead of 6 vampire of single random type. I consider them dark councilors of aristocrats, not a little army.
21. As Magic of Illusions is close range magic school - but still is not melee - when you are AI have wielded staff of Illusions, your speed is decreased by 50%. This should force AI to not taking part in melee fight alongside warriors, casting spells couple of meters behind.
22. Castles food stores are restoring in 10 days instead of 2 hours. So you can take castles without assault if you want.
23. Lords and centers have got scout reports (affect alarms, fleeing) in 2 hours instead in 30 ingame mins.
24. Due to Warband diplomacy there is no such number of wars as you could see in original mod. But still chance of provocation in quite high.
25. Some minor scripts edited in attempt to clone changes i made for original M&B.
26. Added items from OSP Spak_Items by Spak.
27. Due to problems with making LODs for LOTR armor portal mages have got armor from SPAK OSP. Their armor and equipment is absolutely changed and is far more diverse now.
28. Portal Magic (and its branch of Time Magic) is reworked as magic with casting not with scripts on weapon shoot. Now you can press F to cast Portal spells up to limit, limit is setting to 0 every 60 seconds. AI uses Portal Magic based on distance to opponents - they've got own magic AI.
29. Added grandiose collection of 26 shields which were teleported by portal mages from inner worlds. You can collect then and in next update you will able to interact with them in Ritual magic.
30. Added background of mage of illusions.
31. Portals now have blue color of particles, when mental attack is still green.
32. Now spear of legatus teleports caster back for 2 steps instead of 5.
33. Horses are changed as they were in my original MOD, divided into roles of chargers and maneuvered ones. Arabian horses joined 2nd rank of horses (as coursers and hunters) and given to wild mages and wizards.
34. Horses have got reminder in their name about their ranks and training.
35. Bolts are unable to penetrate shields now. They have enough damage in my mod to give them such imbalance trait - they can easily break shield down.
36. Trivial staffs which are used by vaegir archers have decreased by 20 weapon speed due to their excessive power.
37. Pikes are not fully transferred, just warband ones have got more weapon speed. I know, this is not realistic, but warband engine makes pikes with realistic speed is almost useless.
38. Throwing weapon not overwritten but reworked. Cut ones have up to 80 damage, pierce - up to 70. All have 20 shot speed and decreasing weapon speed from 80 to 55, increasing difficulty from 0 to 5 and increasing cost from 100 to 1000. Melee variants are not reworked - so there is huge damage difference between throwing and melee modes.
39. Magic shields have got description.
40. Added 6 Auras spells for Illusion magic school. They slows opponents in area near caster. First branch decreases speed of enemies by 90% each 10 sec in 3/5/7 steps area, and sec 75/50/25% each 3 secs in 3/4/5 steps area.
41. Mages of Illusions have got their own faction. Their troop tree doesn't consist any melee troops - they are considering as summoners of illusions which have limit in 100 (as well as skeletons). Core feature of Illusionists is that they cant spawn big number of illusions when there is no opponents near casters, BUT illusions are more powerful than skeletons.
42. Reinforcements of Illusion Academy consists of 10 mages, as well as Legions'. About 40% of them are illusionists, which can bless allies, and 60% - which can heavily curse opponents (forbidding their movement).
43. Deleted normal covers of vampire daggers' textures. This fixed problem with numerous little black stains on these daggers.
44. Magic Academy of Illusion now occupies place in Magic Forest near academy of Mental magic.
45. Added Archmage' artifact of Illusions. This is tool of 2nd branch of this school which allows to summon more illusions and affect more creatures.
46. Added spell UI for magic of Illusions. Next spell UI will be added as magic will be reworked at the side of true casting instead of weapon shots. The reason - UI elements includes buttons of casting, and these buttons probably will change.
47. Added mages for hire in Illusion Academy and captured by this culture city.
48. Enemies will not run away before 300 seconds (6 minutes) will gone.
49. As faction leader have 100 soldiers, faction marshall ahve got 500 additional soldier capacity. Each castle gives 50 additional soldiers for AI.
50. Lords have got 75% chance of escape after battle instead of 70 but 25% escape from town/castle instead of 30.
51. chance of getting ransom offer for captured lord is increased 10 times (to 50% instead of 5%), but the game checks for this chance not every day, but every week (7 times decreased. Also this gives guarantee chance of at least 3 trying to escape, so without castle lord will be almost guarantee escape before ransom when for castle owners ransom offer is more predictable).

Well, guys.

Frankly speaking, modding is just a single step to the way of game development. When all sources of the mod are still keeping, i have started to work on the roguelike, which will include factional wars and massive politic. I am working on this from April 2018, and Terra Magna is close to alpha release.

Probably i will make couple of updates, but i see nothing in M&B engine that i can't realize in roguelike. So this mod is closed, i am stopping to support this. I am more interested in direct coding, then trying to break existing engine' limitation.

Bye.

I mean you could of used the script extender or gotten the engine files from the website to try simple big changes, its very hard to edit the game in python if you want to do anything pretty much crazy that blows the community minds, but many of the old modders that have done that have pretty much retired and left years ago. All what we see if plugin packed mods with osps+codes these days.

Is there a way to fix the massive amounts of kingdoms always failing to report or war declarations every single day. because i get about 8 windows after every day on factions failing to respond to a other kingdom or a war being declared every day. and it started like that from the start of every game I made.

Whenever I summon skeletons, one of them always follows me. I've tried ordering them to charge, but the one always invades my personal space while the other runs away. I've noticed this bug with other mods (can't remember if it's in native), where heroes will do this.

Edit: seems to do the same for summoning blades. Possibly any other types of summons too.

Warband engine((((

Yes, it've got this. Will try to work on, but not sure that this problem can be solved (i saw the same bug in Phantasy Calradia after using some battle magic).
*Consider, its something about scripted destination, which should be cleared*

Thanks for feedback.

I wonder why it is in .exe files? I have problem trusting .exe files because it is hard to scan files to see if it is safe. I won't download it even if it is on moddb, i still won't download it unless I know it is safe and not in .exe

(Have to login to able to add on my comment since my last post wasn't able to let me do it since on guest, moddb hate guest comment)

Man, please. I am tired of listening such things from users. The single reason i made .exe file is problems which players had with unpacking zip archives. I've got enough reports which proves different troubles with unzipping on different systems.

If you do not want to download something - do not do this. Skilled Magic Calradia is not a commercial project. Your opinion is taking into account as opinion of player - not as opinion of customer. I do whatever i want in the project, and despite the fact i can meet the wishes of users - i will not waste tons of my free time to upload two clone versions.

(i posted something about that - i have very selfish provider and network settings (80 Mbit download and 0.5 Mbit upload), so it takes nearly 2.5-3 hours of my time to upload every pack of SMC. And double this number is unwise).

P. S. Apologizes for the sharpness.

is there a write up somewhere with upgrade paths and what each unit does?
like the difference between the 2 inner world paths

Yes. This is in description of Artifacts. Time mages (Legio Secundus and Tempus) open portals forward to teleport opponents back, and portal mages (Legio I, II, IV) teleport themselves to chase opponents. They also have difference between enchantment of their armor, you can also look at this by searching armor in the shops.

By this way, you can understood differences between wild mages and evokers and artificers (by looking at their artifacts you can see in the shops).

Later i will make detailed description of magic branches (now you can see descr of all schools in the article above) - after including all spells in UI.

Your antivirus do this. You can be absolutely sure that there is no viruses or spy software - so add this into exclusions of your antivirus or disable antivirus for time of installing and skan resulting folder.

Got it to work.
:)
I would suggest getting rid of the installer.
Downloading it as a 7Zip file, dragging it to the modules folder, and extracting is much easier than having to find where the modules folder is with the installer.

It's easier to just right click Mount and Blade Warband in steam, click properties, click view file location and do it that way than click folder after folder in the installer to locate it.
