NagaOptionals - v4.2.beta (9 January 2016)
« on: Oct 20, 2015; 01:02 AM »
CAUTION! WHEN UPGRADING FROM VERSION 3.0 OR 3.1 TO 4.0 OR LATER YOU SHOULD MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR SAVES AND REMOVE ALL SUPERNOVA CASTERS FROM YOUR WEAPON SLOTS BEFORE INSTALLING. OTHERWISE YOUR SAVEGAME WILL BECOME CORRUPTED. THE SAFEST APPROACH WOULD BE TO DISMANTLE, DESTROY OR SELL THE ITEMS.


This mod is meant for use with Nagahaku 3.0b. It offers several options to customize your experience with Nagahaku's mod. If you use it in combination with another total overhaul mod NagaOptionals might not work correctly or mess up your game.

This is my first mod ever. Let me know what you think. Feedback is always welcome. I already have plans for future updates with additional options but don't hesitate to suggest changes/additions.

Installation Instructions

When you install Hellgate and Nagahaku mod for the first time follow the instructions below:
This part is for those who already have Nagahaku installed:
  • Download my mod below.
  • Execute the launcher and and select Utilities -> Modifications -> Install. In the window that pops up select the NagaOptionalsX.Y.mod.zip file you downloaded.
  • You will be presented with a installation dialog featuring a description of the mod and optional components. Select any optional modifications you want and press the install button. BUT make sure you choose/check the same options like you did with Nagahaku mod. E.g. when you chose WOW Inventory Size you have to do the same with this mod again. Otherwise your choices on the original installation would be overwritten.
  • Once the installation is successfully completed you can start the game.
When you reinstall my mod (in case you want to use different options) you have to do the same. If you don't activate an option you've chosen previously the changes will be reverted to the standard state of Nagahaku.


Credits

- The biggest credit belongs to the whole hellgateaus team for providing a forum, modding tools and the most fun I had in a long time because I was finally able to enjoy Hellgate, one of my favorite games of all times, again!
- A big thanks to Malachor from the hellgateaus.info forums for helping me getting into Reanimator.
- Thanks Nagahaku for your awesome mod and all the fun I had playing it.


Download (click it)
I created this alternative as download mirror because the mod becomes bigger and bigger and I run out of space for forum attachments. Via this link you'll find all the versions ever created beginning with v2.4. But keep in mind that I'll give support only for the most recent version to prevent chaos with the different versions and changes.

This looks great Dank,many thanks for your work :) If there's one request of Nagahaku's mod that keeps emerging is,well,more options.And addressing that just seems so well-placed.

I hardly remembered that we had designed the Community items back in the day,so it was a very pleasant surprise to see them implemented.
I won't be able to test the mod myself for the time being so,might I ask which Community items were created and included in the droplist?Apart from the ones you listed here,that is.It's more of a sentimental wonder of mine.

You're welcome and thanks for your kind words. I've read pretty much all the posts in Nagahaku's thread and some others and one request I was reading several times was indestructible bots. Since I wanted to use bots and don't wanted to care about there condition, too, I decided to make this mod. In the end I found myself having a lot of fun using Reanimator and so every few minutes I got a new idea for another option. :D

I haven't implemented new ones, I just saw them in the item table but unused, at least it looked like it. And since I never found a community item before in Naga I made them available. Right now I realized I haven't checked if they scale with your character or only drop with a fixed level. Need to take a look...

Edit: Turns out they still had a fixed level. Therefore I released version 1.1 where I removed said level.

My mistake in phrasing there.My actual question was,which items are in the table :)

Might be my mistake since I'm not a native speaker and sometimes have a hard time interpret a statement. :)

Are there more than the listed ones? They aren't in the item table. Seems like they're the ones from Revival 1.5.

Ah,it seems that only those 6 were created then...

I just unearthed the thread where we'd design those.It's kind of hard to believe it's been 5 years already.

http://www.hellgateaus.info/forum/talk/design-your-own-unique-item/


Edit: Speaking of which,and since we're mentioning custom items alongside "options"...Let me go slightly off the rails here.If anything,I may give you a horrendous idea or two along the way.

Some friends and I used to discuss this topic at length,back in the day.Nadja was an Engi nut,our friend Necrovatis was a Guard nut so it kind of worked out as a coffee break distraction.Reanimator was all-new territory,and we'd all squabble in it from time to time in spite of it all being alien to us.
The ideas that came on the table varied from switching around the elements of the Evoker skills (spectral Hellfire and so on) to swords that would create fields per swing.Necro's sadistic impulse to provide Guardians with Warpers and Reapers was usually the discussion-ender,so to speak.

Where I'm going with this is,simply,that modders still look like Reanimator-wielding wizards to me to this day.Many of our wildest desires and far-fetched theorizings may have never been realized,but just being able to see Nagahaku released along with your perfect follow-up is satisfactory beyond words.Between Nagahaku,Lost London and Revival,seeing such attempts to pump life into this game even today is truly a sight to see :)

I have been trying this mod with the Nagahaku mod
and your mod is great.  I did have a request for future
versions of this mod,  The Nagahaku mod seems to have
removed skill affixes from items, Is it possible to have an
option to again have weapons/armor with skill affixes?
(like for example a cabalist weapon that adds a minion
spawn skill)
This is a minor thing, but might add more variety to the
loot that is available.

edit: after more playing I have started to find some items
with skill affixes, so perhaps I was mistaken. (I have just
returned to the single player game after a long time on
the Hellgate Global server) so please disregard the
request above.

I'm glad you found what you were looking for. Let me know if you have any idea how I could improve the mod. :)

Thanks for your concern. I'm fine. Just a standard tonsillectomy because of 3 years old chronical tonsillitis. The issue was after the first surgery I had a postoperative hemorrhage, lost a lot of blood and they had to do a emergency surgery in the middle of the night. Now I have to overstay in hospital a few days. :)

I'm a long time member on the forums.  Had lost my old account due to forgetting my user name and password so I had to remade this one.  Need to ask if someone can make a addon that once you kill the monsters in one area, that the area won't respawn.

I tried to fiddle around with the Reanimator and the enableroom features and it doesn't work.  I'm not too talented on getting it working right.

There was a mod on the forums that someone made, but the link doesn't work anymore to get it.

Hi snowman, could you redescribe your request? Do you want them to don't respawn in a single session of the game or the complete lifetime of a character? Do you basically want no respawn at all?

Don't need them to respawn with current session.  Other than that, the game is good.   :)

Just want to rectify something:You need to install this mod with the 1.5b launcher.That is all. :)
