Dodge Mod Released

Post by l3lessed » Thu May 07, 2020 10:14 pm

Hey Everyone, I finished the dodge module for my combat overhaul project yesterday.

You can find it on nexus with a full description and all features. To save time and effort, I'm not going to repost all the information; head over to the nexus page for the details. Feedback is always appreciated.

Oh nice! Sounds pretty interesting, and this might be a good fit for the character I'm playing right now, who's a very athletic and agile type. Reading through the description, I feel like the fatigue cost might be a bit high, though. My character has an END of 72, for 144 fatigue, and a cost of 10-20 means I'm probably only going to get to use it a couple times per fight, unless I want to stop and rest after every other fight. My AGI is 65, so that should be about, what, 13.5 fatigue for the cost? Animals I wouldn't be too worried about, those are quick fights, but humanoids and high level undead are fights that can drag on for several minutes of already weaving in and out of attack range. So the fights where it might actually make a difference, I feel skeptical I could use it enough times for it to do just that.

Or maybe I'm wrong and I just need to see it in action first. :P

Good Point. I'll add an adjuster in the setting for cost.

Spent 30 minutes adding the cost adjuster for players like you.

Now, all aspects of the dodge are completely player controllable.

Version 1.2 with this update is up on Nexus. :D

One final update before I move on.

1.3 will be up any minute.

It adds smoothed out head ducking. Now it transitions both up and down using the lerp time calculator to insure smoothstep movement.

I've also added a mod setting to allow players to adjust this. You can either increase or decrease the duck camera effect.

Please play with all settings and provide any feedback for future releases.

Off to play some modded Fallout 4. :D

Sounds interesting.
Would the inclusion of a video that shows Dodge in action help sell this?

You're description says: "Dodge is based on your movement and is dynamically altered by it. Not moving at all, and you're dodge will be small in distance because of a lack of momentum. If you're full sprinting, your dodge will go much further because of increased momentum."

But what about Sneaking characters?
They aren't necessarily sprinting, but should be able to make a good Dodge.

If you think about it, muscles used for Dodging are mostly engaged in another motion, when Sprinting.
But when Sneaking those same muscles are probably coiled and ready to spring.

I'll put up a video.

You can dodge whenever and however you want. It is completely player controlled, and there is nothing, outside being mid-swing or backed up against a wall/object, that stops you from dodge.

Your dodge distance won't be as far, of course, because of a lack of momentum versus a dodge done from full walk or run.

I'll put up a video, so it helps explain/show how it works.
