    If you have not thought of it:
    Quen: vanilla sword skill parry with high block hp
    Axii: confusion effect, its in the code somewhere, causes npcs to flee from you
     
  7. BeazelWeasel

    BeazelWeasel Scruffy Nerf-Herder

    I thought about it, but I wanted Quen to be more of a passive effect, like the elemetal auras but this one shielded/reduced damage instead.
    As for Axii, I thought about using the Timepierce alt to mimick a 'stun' effect, but that enables you to attack the enemy (Timepierce doesn't), and also with a different animaton. Thought about giving it some range by copying the way Evil Eye "shocks" enemies from a distance.
    All in all, it's a messy scavenging job, reappropriating vanilla assets that would require custom animation files, if not new lua scripts - and frankly I don't know if I'm capable of that ;_;

    I gotta ask my man, would you be willing to do a couple custom weapons?

    BeazelWeasel Scruffy Nerf-Herder

    Well, if you're talking about custom abilities and whatnot, not sure I'm the best man for that.
    Determination for having somewhat fleshed out Witcher mod content for this game is what drove me; I just nipped various bits of code from existing weapons, and also not a single gun at that, only melee. Took me a number of hours to figure out all that stuff.
    Also a little worn out from doing the new armor, painting roughly 120 frames is kind of tiresome.
    But if you're talking about art, I can try.

    I honestly just want a shovel with sword attacks i can whack people with and do the uppercut swing, maybe an shasqua sword with crazy fast attack speed and the one special where you flail all over and fly up in the air

    Alright, got the shovel so far

    Managed to get metal impact sounds taken from the frying pan/folding chair weapons :p
    It's fully functional already, just want to know if you have any specifics requests ( rarity, name, description, item level ) before I upload it
    Will work on the sword a bit later or maybe tomorrow

    For the shovel: just a really strong uppercut, maybe gove it the astetic look of making dirt and rocks fly all over, as for rarity make it purple tier, item level... hmm how about mid range? 5-7ish? As for a description "no chilvary here sorry", also can you give it an attack rate of 1.50?

    By the way thanks for doing this

    Making custom particles is kinda beyond my capabilities, I'm afraid, so right now it's the same as a broadsword swing.
    Also, broadsword attack rates are kinda complicated; the actual attack rate in the weapon file ( and shown in the weapon tooltip ) is the pause between each 3-attack combo, and not the timing in between the individual attacks of a combo.
    For reference, all broadswords in the game have the same combo timing, the Solus Katana being the only exception. I used the Solus Katana's specifications to allow my Aerondight to swing faster.
    Which exactly do you want changed?

    Also, go on ahead and tell me specifics for the sword for when I get around to it :p

    The emblems for the other three schools could also be available, not?

    One day, maybe. I thought about adding one armor from each of the schools, with the statues for each of them, but it took me a little over a week using most of my free time to finish the simple Kaer Morhen armor, which itself is a re-paint of an existing armor, with small modifications.
    Armors are a monumental amount of work, requiring 114 individual frames to be hand painted, if I recall correctly, so it kinda tired me out. I had planned to make Ciri's Zirael sword and her clothes, too, in order to have some lady flair in my Witcher mod, but by the end I was exhausted. Having them dyable would have been even more work.
    The Wolf head statue itself also took several hours and iterations even when I had a side-by-side comparison with the official medallion art. The other medallions don't have that luxury except for small pictures in the game manual, and not even all of them - like Bear and Manticore - which I'd have to rely on screenshots from the treasure hunting missions in Witcher 3, or crappy close ups from the sword pommels.
    So can't really say when I might get around to it. :p
