Default Haida Gwaii Complete! version 3.0 (lots of changes)

Version 3.0 of Haida Gwaii!

Recently I decided to revisit Haida Gwaii to take advantage of all the new mod commands put into the game. My knowledge of the game in general has also increased over the past couple of years, so I did some balance changes as well. The nation shouldn't play like MA Man's big brother anymore, but the changes aren't enough to steer away from the original theme of the nation. You can employ various strategies including a bless, stealth raiding and water raiding. I hope you enjoy the changes, this should be the last version of this mod, unless i do changes for bug fixes or typos.

This version contains the following major changes:


-The sacred animals are no longer recruitable, they have become summons.

-Frenzied Moksgmol is now ethereal.

-Thunderbirds are immortal.

-New killer whale sacred summon

-Sgaana Warriors, Tyee and Shaman get waterform

-Sgaana Archer replaced with Eagle Archer

-Forest King eliminated

-Mother Bear's healing % increased

-Lady Hanging Hair has more path diversity now

-No more slaves

-Eliminated Toad Tribe

-Sgaana Tyee now has water and holy magic

-Bear Tyee has e/n and darkvision

-Coyote Mother changed to 2n/1s

-Kachina summons only one thunderbird a turn now

-Sgaana Shaman is more magically diverse now

-Eagle Talon is more magically diverse now

-Added Raven Archer, stealthy archer

-Added Raven Warrior, stealthy light warrior

-Added Bear Warrior, regening, recuping dual wielder

-Slightly altered Crest Pole graphic

-Slightly altered Great Raven graphic

-Reduced number of starting troops

-Added shallow water fort

-Changed forts, starting fort gives more admin

-Altered most spell costs

-Reduced number of units per point of PD

-Fish Carver has underwater form

-Raven Scout has air magic now, and very slight chance for death.

-Changed the nation flag to tribal killer whale symbol.




Enjoy!









-----------------------------------------------------------------
Haida Gwaii has been revamped with new changes that reflect the modding capabilities of the latest patches. Enough changes have been made to make the mod more enjoyable and balanced. Below is the list of changes since the original version of the mod. The new mod is attached to this post.

I'll update the mod list entry and give this a go today. It sounds like good times.

Did you sort out the odd attacks the coyote had? (it was claw claw no bite or something).

Default Re: Haida Gwaii 2.0 (lots of changes)

Couple of quick questions;

Why do coyotes have 3 attacks, claws+bite? It seems like a coyote would probably just bite and at most have 1 extra claw attack (even that seems a stretch, they aren't clawed animals afaik).

Why do Haida start with 40 troops in their starting army? Most nations have about 20.

In the coyote description it says they increase turmoil. I assume this means unrest. It might be a little bit misleading for some people though, with turmoil and unrest being quite different in dom3.

Default Re: Haida Gwaii 2.0 (lots of changes)

Sombre, thanks for taking the time to look over the units and such! Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

Originally, Haida Gwaii had 40 because the units that composed the starting force had pathetic gear compared to most other nations, and the force performed at a level of 30 units that a lot of other nations have.

Over the patches one of the units received a significant upgrade to armor, so now it is a stronger force of 40. I don't think I am going to change it, and instead tout it as an advantage of this nation, and a very trivial one at that since a lot of nations have 30 starting units.

The coyote originally had just a "bite", testing the unit revealed that + low stats was pretty terrible. Cost was reduced and the new attacks added to try to make the unit more desirable. I suppose I could take the claw attacks away, and reduce the price further and/or maybe upgrade some of the stats.

Good catch on turmoil instead of unrest, was the wrong choice of words, I will change it in the next edition, as well as consider some coyote changes, if I get anymore feedback.

Default Re: Haida Gwaii 2.0 (lots of changes)

If you're still interested, Foodstamp, I finally figured out a workable (and fairly thematic) way for Haida to get a grey whale Pretender: They could start with an immobile whale totem-I believe you're already using totem poles as Pretenders?-that then has a waterform that transforms it into a grey whale SC. It would have to be teleported, ofcourse, but that would be a useful balance against a relatively powerful SC chassis. On land, with access to water/astral paths, it could still teleport around and cast spells in relative safety-immobile Pretenders are difficult to destroy-but then, in the water, it would come into it's own.

Question Re: Haida Gwaii 2.0 (lots of changes)

Hey,

I've been trying out this mod recently, but I whenever I do I get a Nagot gick fel! everytime on the first turn. Does anyone know what causes this?

Also, the Sgaana harpoon warriors start out in their 80s. Is this related to the problem above? Tonight I think I'm gonna try to edit out the harpoon warriors and see if that makes the mod work.

And fyi, I did try to run it with only the Haida Gwaii mod active. It still ngf'ed.

Potion Re: Haida Gwaii 2.0 (lots of changes)

Turns out that, yes, the Harpoon Warriors are the reason the mod crashes the game. It appears they share a unitid with another (vanilla) unit, but I don't know which. The harpooners unitid is 2501 iirc, which should be above the current number of vanilla units. I'll do a few more tests tonight and get the results to you all tomorrow.
