Augmentations and modifications?
« on: Dec 02, 2018; 05:31 PM »
How to extend an amount of modifications/augmentations for the weapon?
There is a file, gameglobals, I changed max_item_upgrades and max_item_augments to 12, but in game I cannot make more than 5 augmentations. Is there anything else to be changed?

max_item_upgrades - I wonder, how it works? Does it  increace the level of the weapon only?

Also I would like to know, where is the price for an augmentation located?

Items has space for 6 affixes(affix column).
ItemQuality has 6 affixes. Although the first affix listed is a levelmod affix.
I think that the only way to add more affixes is to make affixes more like the unique item affixes with multiple properties per affix.
For upgrades and augment costs look in item_levels.
Be aware that people had issues with items disappearing when they had changed the number of upgrades. I think it was because they were trying to exceed the maximum level of the item, but I haven't tested it. But I recommend increasing the max level of weapons and armour(in the items file, not item_levels).

So, looks like, I normally  I can not make more space for affixes?

Looked into the item_levels file: if I understood, higher level, provides more damage a weapon does. But, when I upgraded a weapon by nanoforge, the amount of damage did not change...

How many times did you upgrade it?
Don't forget that the damage values seen ingame are smaller than what's shown in minDamage/maxDamage columns, so if you've upgraded only once, then it's probably adding something like 0.2 and won't change ingame until you upgrade a few more times, or enough for 1.0( or thereabouts, this just me guessing the values).

Yes, the damage increases but very, very little. 1-2 points....
