Hi! Sorry for asking, can I politely ask how you made Awareness? I'm really interested in altering reaction abilities!
if you can't spare the time though, that's understandable, I'll work with what I can

First, thanks for the feedback! I believe the 102 speed growth rate is a relic from an earlier version of the mod, but if I'm to attempt to discern my reasoning for the change, I believe I wanted speed to grow just a little more slowly for generic classes versus the special classes and monsters. 102 vs. 100 isn't a huge change, but over a long enough time period it can become noticeable.

Quote from: IronJustice on September 12, 2020, 01:14:10 amYou have updated this mod multiple times over the years, do you have any advice for things you didn't initially think of? I just submitted my own mod on here and I wouldn't be surprised if I find out through further testing and feedback about areas for improvement.
It pays to do entire runs of your own mod to find out what's missing or could be tweaked. I've played my own mod through over 10 times and each time I found something I felt needed changing. The Necromancer class originally was called Arcanist and borrowed spells from other existing classes, but I felt it wasn't very unique. I originally gave Ladd a custom class called Dark Fencer (as he worked for Gaffgarion) which was an inferior version of the Dark Knight/Fell Knight, but decided that Ladd didn't have enough story presence to deserve his own custom class. Chapter 4 Ramza used to be much more powerful than he is now, but I felt that this discouraged using generics in chapter 4 even more than this mod already does. Lastly, Deep Dungeon/Midlight's Deep was originally unchanged from the main game aside from making all enemies level 99. A big stat increase doesn't add much challenge to generics who aren't kitted out but it makes my custom monsters much more deadly. I felt this was unbalanced and set out to make a truly challenging but fun version of the optional dungeon. Even now I feel like some things could be changed - Summons, for example, are straight up better than Black Magic in my opinion and aside from the MA growth/multiplier I think I'd rather field a summoner for the superior spell list. I did enjoy using a Black Mage with Draw Out/Iaido a lot, so I guess there's still a use for them, as Manafont doesn't mean much if you're spamming sword spirit attacks.

Please let me know if you have any other critiques. I'm open to the idea of returning speed growth values to 100 if that seems to make more sense.

Unfortunately I believe I copied this one from an ASM hack thread buried somewhere in the forums and as of now I'm unable to find it. I think FFT Arena also uses this RSM ability.

Following these posts, I have decided to nerf summons in yet another update. IronJustice, I will attempt to play through your mod once I'm finished testing mine once more.
