0.8.2: Can't join Mage's Guild regardless of reputation

Post by BansheeXYZ » Sat Jun 29, 2019 8:26 am

Not sure if I'm doing something wrong after updating, but my new character has 34 Restoration, 22 mysticism, and 0 reputation. Guild members tell me I can't join due to a less than stellar reputation. I edited my savefile and gave myself 90 rep to all, still no go.

Thanks for the save. :)

Your rep with the Mages Guild is -2 in your FactionData.txt. See "rep" field below.

Code: Select all

{
            "Key": 40,
            "Value": {
                "id": 40,
                "parent": 0,
                "type": 2,
                "name": "The Mages Guild",
                "rep": -2,
                "summon": -1,
                "region": -1,
                "power": 75,
                "flags": 0,
                "ruler": 0,
                "ally1": 368,
                "ally2": 464,
                "ally3": 0,
                "enemy1": 0,
                "enemy2": 0,
                "enemy3": 0,
                "face": -1,
                "race": -1,
                "flat1": 22656,
                "flat2": 23323,
                "sgroup": 2,
                "ggroup": 10,
                "minf": 10,
                "maxf": 70,
                "vam": 0,
                "rank": 0,
                "rulerNameSeed": 1830445706,
                "rulerPowerBonus": 48,
                "ptrToNextFactionAtSameHierarchyLevel": 0,
                "ptrToFirstChildFaction": 0,
                "ptrToParentFaction": 0,
                "children": [
                    68
                ]
            }
        },
Editing this to 0, your character is able to join normally. Raising your rep just a little should do it.

Ah, interesting. I didn't know it was possible to start out negative with common faction like that. Was it because I used the questions during the class creation process, which I don't normally do? Or maybe because I gave myself -2 to underworld rep in order to +1 merchants and scholars?

I'm not sure to be honest. It's only a minor change, so probably biography questions during character creation propagated that way. Fortunately won't be too hard to overcome in the normal way. :)
