Adjusts damage and hit chance depending on length of bow draw. Obviously only works with the bow draw option enabled in main DFU settings. If you release an arrow too soon, damage and hit chances are reduced. Same if you hold the bow drawn too long. Releasing at the right point will give a slight increase to hit chance.
The tables below shows the current implementation of adjustments:
Code: Select all
Draw time effect on damage: 0s - 0.8s = damage is scaled linearly up to default damage 0.8s - 5s = normal default damage 5s - 6s = 85% damage 6s - 8s = 75% damage 8s - 9s = 50% damage 9s - = 25% damage
Code: Select all
Draw time effect on hit chance: 0s - 0.2s = -40 to hit 0.2s - 0.5s = -10 to hit 0.5s - 1s = normal to hit 1s - 2s = +10 to hit 2s - 5s = normal to hit 5s - 8s = -10 to hit 8s - = -20 to hit
Enhances horse riding, making it more realistic looking and providing new abilities.
- Riding presented in a more realistic way, with the animated horses head fixed in the view rather than moving with the camera. Limits ability to look downwards while riding.
- Horses will follow the gradient of the terrain. This slope following can be made sharper or softer by adjusting a mod setting up or down.
- Horses can now gallop (sprint) by pressing the shift key. Cart horses cannot.
- Civilian NPCs can be trampled by galloping horses, killing them and sending city guards after you for assault. Be careful or keep your speed down in populated areas.
- Enemies can be charged down with the horse by galloping into them. This only works once, as they'll be wise to your tactics after that. Always hits and does twice max hand to hand damage but costs a moderate amount of stamina.
- If the Realistic Movement setting is on, then horses and carts will have much more limited strafe (horse: 40%, cart: 10%) and backup (horse: 50%, cart: 20%) speeds.
Simple module that gives consequences to carrying too much weight. Once you're carrying more than three quarters of your maximum capacity, your speed will start to reduce and rate of fatigue will increase. This is relative to weight up to -50% speed at 100% capacity. The reduction will show on the character sheet just like any other stat debuff.
Simply makes bandage items usable items which will heal some health depending on the level of medical skill. This is a basic implementation that will only work if Roleplay & Realism: Items is not installed as the implementation in that mod has lighter, stackable bandages and is more usable.
Ship Port Boarding
This module places a restriction on where you can board your ship, once you've saved up and purchased one. With this enabled ships can only be boarded from towns with ports.
This module makes it possible to be expelled from the underworld guild in Daggerfall. Beware, neither the Thieves Guild or the Dark Brotherhood are the sort of organisations that allow members to just walk away. There's no way to re-join either, since those bridges will be well and truely burned, even if you do somehow get out alive.
Mountain Rumors (FG Master quest)
A new quest "Mountain Rumors" added for players that reach master rank in the Fighters Guild. Investigate rumors of a missing master armor smith. Success will find a unique shop added to the game providing custom armor pieces so you can complete your set of Orcish armor! For a price of course. Failure can even result in your being hounded to death by the Dark Brotherhood.
The quest contains different choices and options, pay attention to what is going on because the penalties are quite severe. Hopefully everyone will enjoy the more in depth questline here, but it doesn't hold your hand. Thanks to Ralzar for beta testing it. Uses and demonstrates a lot of new modding features and adds a brand new location to the game, if you can find it of course.
With this module enabled, you will not be able to climb while holding a weapon. If you get a good hold you can use a weapon, but sheath it before attempting to move otherwise you're certain to fall.
Weapon Speed Limits
This module puts a variable speed limiter on melee weapon attacks dependent on weapon type and character speed & strength. For most weapons, strength will now count towards attack speed: 20% for 1 Handed and 50% for 2 Handed.
Above 70 speed, there will be diminishing returns on attack speed with a cap of 100% for no weapon, 97% for daggers, 92% for 1H and 85% for 2H.
This is a basic implementation that will only work if Roleplay & Realism: Items is not installed as the implementation in that mod is based on weapon weights after rebalancing them.
This module increases the damage taken by armor worn in combat to make it actually noticeable and eventually your armor will need repairs if you wear it long enough. Essentially the damage done for a successful hit from an enemy is taken by your health and the armor piece condition.
Enemy Appearance Remix
This module remixes the appearance of human enemies with classes to make them more realistic. It also gives a better distribution of classes to the available animated sprites. One gameplay change is that Sorcerers will now be able to cast spells at you. This change goes hand in hand with the upcoming module of the Loot Realism mod pack that makes enemy equipment for human enemies based on their class. The classes that have a new appearance with this module are shown below, all other classes remain unchanged.
Sensible Purify Potions
This module changes Purify potions so that they cure poison instead of applying invisibility, which is probably a bug in classic and matches the other effects much better.
Auto-extinguish Player Light
This module will automatically extinguish player light when exiting dungeons during the day. For those forgetful players. (so almost everyone! )
Weapon Material To-hit Moderation
This module reduces the to-hit bonuses of high tier weapon materials so skill remains key factor in the to-hit calculations. For example Daedric weapons give a +18 bonus to hit with this mod enabled, which is quite a good bonus, however normally it would be +60 which makes weapon skill largly irrelavent.
Classic Strength Damage Bonus
This module changes the strength damage bonus to match what is displayed in classic rather than what was used for calculations. Probably a bug in classic and this module assumes the displayed value is what should have been used. It means that the bonus is -5 to +5 instead of -10 to +10 which matches other bonuses from attributes.
Variant Shop and Tavern Keepers
This module changes the NPC sprites for some shops and taverns to alternate images based on building quality. This is purely cosmetic to add some variety as well as indication of establishment quality. Credit to RealAKP and Polarstar from Discord for the artwork. Currently there are 7 new variant sprites, hopefully more will be added over time.
Replace random house flats with Townsfolk
This module replaces 80% of the random flats in houses with the townsfolk you see walking around. It's the same replacement every time for each individual building. It makes sense to have the people you see wandering around town actually live in residences. Doesn't add any sprites so is fully compatible with Dream. Also compatible with an upcoming collaboration mod called Villager Variety, and faces will be varied in houses if that mod is also installed and enabled.
Bank Loan Max Amount Per Level
This allows the maximum amount of gold banks will lend your character per level to be set to player preference. Defaults to 10k gold per level, which is much more realistic that the default 50k. If you prefer the default, then just change this setting back to 50k. Can go as low as 2k.
Refined Guild Training Service
This module refines guild training service so skill is selected first and the price is based on both character level and skill level, so no more paying a fortune for a beginners lesson because you're a high level. Can be disabled so standard pricing is used, but the skill selected first is retained.
Also there's an optional intensive training setting that can be enabled for having an option for 5 days training in one go for those that want quick and easy skill training. Disabled by default as I consider this more streamlining than role-playing. It has a price premium and works the same as standard training except that time is advanced 5 days and the skill is raised directly by 4% first. Not something I'd personally use, but has been requested by some players who find raising skills to be tedious.
For DFU v0.13.5+ get v1.4 here: https://www.nexusmods.com/daggerfallunity/mods/16
I'm very happy for suggestions for additional modules or contributions.
