Quote from: nitwit on October 25, 2021, 04:00:04 pmWhat I want to do is replace each of the 4 defensive element affinity bytes with 8 nybbles, with one nybble per element. Do this everywhere there's an elemental affinity - gear and jobs IIRC. Then sum up the values and assign a defensive elemental characteristic based on the result.

Quote from: Gravrain on October 13, 2021, 12:54:36 amThe description for the Samurai's Shirahadori ability has been corrected; it now includes ranged attacks in its list of triggers instead of excluding them.
Party roster adjustment: When the player dismisses a unit from the party, the following unit will take their place in the roster, then the next unit will take theirs, and so on, thereby filling the open slot (instead of leaving it empty).
Warning: This feature can cause bugs if more than one party member dies in a single battle. Use with caution!

Quote from: Ansehelm on July 21, 2021, 11:57:27 pmAre there any ASMs that improve the utility of being mounted? Mounting is such a cool mechanic in theory, but the increase in move and status immunity are rarely enough to make it worth turning 2 units into 1. Something like +4 Speed and PA and +20% Evade while mounted would be a dream come true
Quote from: nitwit on June 30, 2021, 09:37:13 pmHack Idea: Disable crytalization and treasure chest effects, and when a non-essential character's KO countdown expires they instead become unusable for a number of days equal to their character level. Essential characters still produce a game over when they are made unusable.
I think I remember seeing a piece of text for the "unusable" effect - or maybe "unavailable" - similar to the text for characters that are on errands.
Quote from: nitwit on June 04, 2021, 05:33:42 amNow that I think about it, simply highlighting the tile similarly to attack targeting or movement - but with a different color when in x squares of a treasure/trap - is a better idea.
I thought you were mistaken, but it looks like there are either multiple copies of the move-find item data or it's temporarily stored in various places.
There are also the found item flags for each battlefield, which must be part of save data since they can't be found again. Randomizing move-find item data and and renewing them after each battle frees up that space. Something to consider if a hack needs a few hundred extra bytes in save data and you have the means to use those bytes.
While I'm only interested in randomizing them and their traps and maybe getting a support skill that lets players see them (or an option for this hypothetical hack which ensures only player characters can find items), manipulating battlefield traps, weather, and lighting makes for a more flavorful geomancer.
Again, it's not a big deal as I can currently change their coordinates, alter traps, and rebalance items so it doesn't matter if enemies get them on my own. Don't consider this a request, just a possible solution that may fit your needs in the future.
Quote from: CONMAN on March 05, 2021, 12:37:44 pmThis is awesome ArmoredKori! Map making definitely takes some patience. I've made a couple ,but I've wanted to make several more! I've had some big ideas only to stop and start a different one that I think would be easier to pull off. I made a "home front" out of the thieves fort and tried to make bervenia into something of a volcano peak: https://ffhacktics.com/smf/index.php?topic=9333.msg223776#msg223776
I have long thought that it would be cool to have a royal garden or a badass throne room for Lesalia (or fuck the one from game of thrones.) Really anything Lesalia centered.
I'll be checking this out!
