New Abolisher looks rather nice, although he is much smaller than what I expect. Jenna's 'crown' looks like Sun Wukong's circlet, which is not too nice.
I don't think he can reasonably be any bigger and not eclipse things with his body. I've had to resort to a lot of model tricks to get his body to not cover everything (similarly so with the Blade Kraken's head being click-through)
Jenna's circlet is a copy and paste from her old skin sheet so it always looked like that. The thing I'm kind of iffy about is she kind of looks like Princess Zelda from OoT.
Why Neo Arcadia's turtles are called Goblin Submarine? They are living turtles (count as organic units and leave corpses), which is unlikely to be goblin-piloted.
It's a Warcraft 2 thing. 'Goblin Submarines' are giant sea turtles with giant missiles strapped onto them (the name is obviously a joke).
Book 5, Secret Level: Kagero Clan Remnants is too numerous in my opinion (if Panther Riders and Sentinels are part of the clan pre-disband), and their heroes should have dialogues with Kurumi and Kevin if they are not too numerous that one don't know evey other members.
There should be more dialogues
I wouldn't think too hard on it (heck even Miyuki shouldn't be on that map as she's dead hence the jabs at her direction). The point is there's a Ninja army fighting a Pirate army.
Level 8-1 Book 4: I dont know why abilities target are described on tooltip as 'on friendly/enemy units' (plural) but when I cast it, it chooses one random target in case of Cantrip of Death, Earth, Water, while Cantrip of Fire only cast Breath of Fire on one direction.
The system really didn't work anyway.
ED1: he is not. Also, is his new model a shivarra?
Yes it is and that's probably how it's going to stay for the time being. He literally could turn into anything, but I chose that one in particular because a) I couldn't find anywhere else to use it and it would be a shame to not use it at all and b) it still roughly fit the original profile of the previous crappy model.
I mean, there is in fact another Shivarra running around in Book 6's south district, but I happen to like that model for different reasons.
Sorana's Chain of Frost does not mention damage reduction on secondary targets. Level 3 deal 150 damage to secondary target instead of 200.
This almost certainly changed when I fixed the spell logic the last time. The latest version of my 'chain' spell template should have been standardized with the damage reduction and that's probably what accounts for the damage change. I'm fairly certain the original spell logic never had the damage falloff which is what made them too good.
I've thought about giving Sorana's 'kill for minions' ability a 1-2 second grace period ala HotS does for 'last kill' abilities, but haven't come up with a satisfying way to do it without having to add a bunch of new abilities. Of course that's really beside the point as her 'kill for minions' wasn't part of her original skill set in the first place.
Level 5 Book 5: Those Pillars (in my attached pictures) are not Sealed Gates.
I should probably change the graphics of those things. They never were what I had in mind (the entire puzzle for that matter was an objective failure).
In Legacy of the Wizard the Mother's route ran on three puzzle items-- the Magic Key, the Wings, and the Mystic Crossbow. The Crossbow's purposes was to punt blocks. The Magic Key was to use up Magic instead of Keys to open doors, and there were a ton of doors. Wings are self-explanatory.
The original idea was to use the Mystic Crossbow to punt blocks, but that didn't work, so I gave up and changed it to the Magic Key 'puzzle'. Which is kind of like giving up because there's literally nothing to it.
In comparison the Pet's route was simply a maze with monsters in it (the pet couldn't be harmed by the monsters). The Father's route was pushing blocks around, and the Daughter's route was platforming and destroying blocks with the Mattock. The Pet's route is a trap maze. The Father's route turned out exactly how I wanted with the addition of a mirror puzzle. The Daughter's route is just an elevator maze since you can't have real platforming in this game.
The Lava Lake is 'just because' the Son doesn't have an actual route (his route involves going into everyone else's as it's actually a teleport puzzle), but just a short take on how I tend to use the Son to grab the Glove at the start of the game.
So it breaks down like this:
The Pet -> Tarantunes
The daughter -> Erebone
The mother -> Arcwinger
The father -> Rockgaea
The son -> Keela
Only the Son can fight Keela just because of how the game works, but the other bosses you can technically fight in whatever order you wish-- just you'd wish you did it in the recommended order (Rockgaea as the Pet is pretty nightmarish).
