Dom3 DB v3.23b
The Dom3 DB has been sadly languishing in limbo as I have pursued other interests with the vigor formerly dedicated to the DB.

However, thanks to lch and his excellent data gathering, there has been a great quantity of new information that warranted a new update.

Some noteworthy things:
  • New units and weapons, of course
  • Unit nametypes are listed in BaseU table
  • Encumbrance value was calculated incorrectly, fixed
  • Resource cost is automatically calculated after lch's data gave me base resource costs and ressize values, meaning it's all automated from now on. And the formula even works correctly, despite being nearly as complicated as age, encumbrance and defense. The resource cost has been my main pet peeve about the DB, like an itch that I haven't been able to scratch, so personally this is the greatest source of satisfaction for me.
  • Started revamping item page, then said screw it, because otherwise it would take far longer to update that. Will look very different after it's done, but not in this update yet.
  • Next update will list a lot of other things on the BaseU page, such as the number of eyes, ability to cause good or bad events and the specials section will have a lot more stuff for the units that have them.

You can download the file from here.

The zip file contains the full DB in Open Office format (monster formulas and all) and static versions in both Open Office and Excel format. I probably forgot to remove formulas from the magic site page, but you'll just have to live with it.


The old Dom3 DB discussion thread is here.

edi, any chance you could add sprite1 and sprite2 to the database. would be very useful.

Re: Dom3 DB v3.23b
Until he does, you can get the sprite number by inspecting the unit in the game and hitting Shift+I. Same for items.

Not in Windows you don't. You get the unit number and item number, but not the sprite numbers. You're probably so used to working with the code dived data that you don't even notice anymore...

Re: Dom3 DB v3.23b
True. My apologies about the misinformation! :)

Edi / lch - thanks!

Re: Dom3 DB v3.23b
And I am remiss in not saying thanks first.. I apologize.
One of the tools I (and probably everyone else) uses every game...

Re: Dom3 DB v3.23b
I think I found an error--Icicle Mail is encumbrance 2 in-game but the DB says it's enc 1.

Re: Dom3 DB v3.23b
The smallest of the smallest of irrelevant corrections ever.

Agartha's Wet One underwater recruit, unit #1636, has a purchase cost of 10 gold, and not the 7 gold that is entered in the 3.23 of the DB (attached to the OP)

I did say it was a small correction :) And feel free to ignore, as it is purely the pedantic OCD part of my brain that has forced me to report it.

Re: Dom3 DB v3.23b
Also Kohen Gadol has 3 misc slots and not 2 as in the db IIRC.

Edi March 25th, 2011 12:21 PM

Re: Dom3 DB v3.23b
Indeed, so it looks like.

I've fixed those little bits and also updated the site locmasks for the stuff that was fixed in the previous patch.

The new DB, v3.26, has been uploaded, but I might as well not bother with a new thread since the update is relatively such a minor one.

Re: Dom3 DB v3.23b
Is the db still available? It seems the link no longer works...

Bump to the top.

Greeting, old friends, if any of you are still around... :)

I've been away from Dominions for a long time, but with upcoming release of Dom5 I am feeling inclined to get back into the Dominions fold.

So, since I've skipped Dom4 entirely (after playing like half a hundred of Dom2 and Dom3 competitive MP games for 5 years), I was wondering if there is any statistics of how many new spells/items/magic sites has been added to Dom4, and how many will be added to Dom5?

I've dug around the net, and it looks like Dom4 references are easily available (Dom 4 mod inspector)

However the excellent "dom3 DB" database that I've used a lot in the past I couldn't locate anywhere online - all links I've found were dead.

Does anybody know where I could get that dom3 DB reference material by any chance?

Also, what's your general gut feeling - how much new stuff has been added to Dom4, and how much will be added to Dom5?

Thanks a lot!
