Default Modding a Pretender, and when I try to create...

Right, I am modding in an Oni pretender for EA Yomi, the details are yet to be finalised but right now the code looks like this:

Code:
#newmonster 2001
#copyspr 1316
#name "Dai Oni Lord"
#descr "The Dai Oni Lord is the mightiest of the demon kings. Like the Dai Oni, he is huge and commands vast magical powers, though like all Oni, he is a terrible researcher. Like all Oni, he can adopt a weaker spirit form when defeated in battle, this spirit form must also be defeated to fully kill the Lord. The lesser Oni and their servants revere him as a god, and with the old Pantokrator gone, is out to become a true god."
#hp 70
#size 5
#ressize 5
#prot 8
#mor 30
#mr 20
#enc 1
#str 23
#att 15
#def 14
#prec 9
#mapmove 2
#ap 12
#gcost 75
#rcost 1
#weapon 21 -- Javelin
#weapon 379 -- No-Dashi
#weapon 383 -- Throw Flames
#okleader
#nomagicleader
#expertundeadleader
#startdom 3
#pathcost 50
#itemslots 15494 -- two hands, one head, one body, one feet, two misc
#magicskill 5 1
#magicskill 0 1
#magicskill 1 1
#magicskill 3 1
#magicskill 2 1
#demon
#fireres 100
#poisonres 100
#mountainsurvival
#neednoteat
#supplybonus -5
#researchbonus -3
#secondtmpshape 2002
#fear 4
#maxage 1000
#restrictedgod 19
#end

#newmonster 2002
#copyspr 1317
#name "Oni Spirit"
#descr "Oni are almost immortal, if their physical body is destroyed they take on spirit form. These spirits must also be destroyed or the Oni will reform a new body."
#hp 35
#size 5
#ressize 5
#prot 0
#mor 30
#mr 20
#enc 0
#str 23
#att 15
#def 14
#prec 9
#mapmove 2
#ap 12
#gcost 75
#rcost 0
#weapon 67 -- Phantasmal Weapon
#okleader
#nomagicleader
#expertundeadleader
#startdom 2
#pathcost 50
#itemslots 15494 -- two misc
#magicskill 0 1
#magicskill 1 1
#magicskill 2 1
#magicskill 3 1
#magicskill 5 1
#ethereal
#undead
#poisonres 100
#neednoteat
#firstshape 2001
#maxage 3000
#restrictedgod 19
#end
#end
and when I go to create a Pretender in game, my Dai Oni Lord is there, and right clicking the chassis in form selection displays the correct magic paths, HOWEVER, when I select the form and go to purchase extra/improve magic paths, I have an S1 pick out of NOWHERE, any idea how to stop this from happening?

#magicskill 5 1 is the culprit. It assigns one level of astral.

You also need to use #secondshape 2002 on the first monster and #firstshape 2001 on the second or your oni will die permanently after the battle if reduced to spirit form.

I suggest taking a closer read through the modding manual and asking in the modding subforum here or on the Desura forum.

There are some interesting results with magicboosting skills. I can't recall the details, but ninjadebugger has used them for various tricks (pretenders that have f6 ingame but only give a f4 bless etc).

I think he posted some of his findings on dom3mods. Or you could look at the awesomegods mods for more details.

Magicboost works in a pretty simple way. The extra magic is only available for casting. It won't increase cost of paths or count for bless and you don't even see it while picking the pretender.

I would also note that the #magicskill stuff on the second shape is pointless as it will inherit any magic from the primary shape anyway. However there is no real loss from having them either. #startdom, #pathcost and #restrictedgod on the second shape will also probably result in the nation also having access to a pretender chassis named "Oni Spirit" which I don't think is the goal. You should be able to safely remove all of them.

The problem here is not magicskill 5 or any other thing like it.

The problem is your unit numbers. Units in game go up to 2106 or 2107 so make your numbers higher than those or put in the #clearmagic command if you wanted to overwrite the preexisting units. If you were overwriting 2000 and 2001 for a reason you may want to also use #clearweapons and #cleararmor.

Indeed, magic path number 5 is death, not astral. Kudos to you for noticing.

Oops, sorry. I had my path mask math off a bit and didn't think to check the unit numbers properly. How embarrassing...
