Attribute Potions

Hi guys:

I noticed belatedly, because I'm a dolt, :P that we had started having a discussion about other mods in
ChickenGeorge's mod page "Madame Pendra's Stat Increase Potions"

I thought our discussion would be clearer if it was in it's own thread, so I'm directing further comments and questions here.

I've placed this thread in DS1/LoA modding forum, even though ChickenGeorge's mod is for U5 Lazarus, since we were talking about other mods, such as Psychogun's which are for LoA.

Please remember to post any more comments or questions in this thread. Thanks!

Continued Discussion

a question:
That looks like a good mod you've created there, it's a shame that you protected the tank so we can't look at the files to see how you made it, any way my question is would something like that work in DS1.

attribute-boost potions:
I recall a DS1/LoA mod called Reign of Chaos by Psychogun that had attribute-boost potions.

A small mod from Kuno:

"This is a little mod that I cooked up after reading a post on a forum. I believe I squashed all the bugs in it. But if you find any more let me know. Below is a list of the new potions that I have created. 900 seconds is 15 minutes. These can all be bought in Elddim from the mage in the church. Mind you that there not cheap. Alteast for a new player starting out in Mutliplayer.

Strength Potion - Raises Str by 10 for 900 seconds
Dexterity Potion - Raises Dex by 10 for 900 seconds
Intelligence Potion - Raises Int by 10 for 900 Seconds
Melee Potion - Raises Melee by 10 for 900 seconds
Ranged Potion - Raises Ranged by 10 for 900 seconds
Nature Magic Potion - Raises N_Magic by 10 for 900 seconds
Combat Magic Potion - Raises C_Magic by 10 for 900 seconds
Stats Potion - Raises Str, Dex and Int by 15 for 900 seconds
Weapon Potion - Raises Melee and Ranged by 15 for 900 seconds
Magic Potion - Raises Nature and Combat Magic by 15 for 900 seconds

another question:
I've downloaded it and had a look at it as well Ulyss, but then I got to thinking, what do I actually do with one of these things if I ever got one, so my new question is.........

How would I go about drinking one of these new potions you've cooked up, or do I have to do something else with it, like shove it somewhere that could be very painful, or probably not so painful if you're into that kind of thing?, I'm looking forward to an answer as I haven't got one. Big smile

Psychogun:

I remember that as well, Klandank and I also seem to remember that they had a permanent effect on the character's base stats, as ChickenGeorge's mod appears do. I need to look around for Psychogun's mods, I know I have them stored somewhere. So ChickenGeorge, are you planning to make a port of your potion mod for regular DS? I'm just curious, and you do have some cool and creative ideas.

I just wish wet weather did not make my memory go all wonky.

Attribute Boost Potions "EDIT"
Some maps have these "attribute boost potions" like Reigh of Chaos by Psychogun (2005):

1) Strength Potion (blue) 150,000 gold = increase strength +1
2) Dexterity Potion (yellow) 150,000 gold = increase dexterity +1
3) Intelligence Potion (green) 150,000 gold = increase intelligence +1
- sell by Alchemist Pirotess

Single player map only!

Here the map: Reign of Chaos (Reign of Chaos.zip - 4,93 Mo)

File attachments does not work!

Desperate times desperate measures:

I was able to upload Reign of Chaos to our site. I've linked it here and you can also find it in the download area under maps and siegelets for LoA

Now we're all begging for ChickenGeorge to make a mod for DSLOA (3 normal maps). A potion for each attribute (strength, dexterity and intelligence)... at a reasonable price. Thanks in advance

I made a quick mod for this. The potions are for sale by Trianna in the shrine in Elddim. Cost is 10g

Please test this mod out, as I cannot at this time. Let me know any problems. Needless to say, all credit for the items are to Psychogun, as well as ChickenGeorge. If the mod is working, then I can further customize it. Please remove any mods related to shopkeepers before testing this mod.

Just as soon as I find time to install a fresh copy of DSLOA with no other mods. When that will happen your guess is as good as mine
Elf

I started the game went directly to the magic sales lady in the church without doing anything else. I looked at the potions and the new ones where not there.

1. Do I need to be at a certain level in some skill?

2. If so which skill?

3 What potion icon did you use?

Thanks a potion-aholic Elf with no potions

Insane Elf

No skills required for potion use. This was a mod that was made super quick, so I probably made an error in Trianna's template. The gas file for the potions is the same one Psychogun made with alteration to the potion price for testing purposes. If the mod worked I was planning to customize it further, but feel free to untank it if you like.

Blah! This is what comes of having an idea right before dinner. Shocked

I never untank before dinner, it always gets in the way of chewing. I will have a look later, and if I see anything strange I will attempt to fix it. But as you know I am better fixing armor and weapons

I start a new game and find all three potions - cost 30 gold each - Thanks Kathycf - Soon I become a potion_aholic. The potions are for sale by Trianna in the shrine in Elddim. Cost is 10g = wrong cost 30 gold - Thanks again

Although I disabled all the mods in the game. There must be a shop keeper mod I hid in the map. I will find it. Glad it works and is just my error.

Elf

I'm glad you were able to use the mod, Ulyss and you're very welcome.

I will further customize this mod to make potions available to various other vendors and to offer a little more power in the stat boost. While I don't want to get nuts, I was thinking of potions to increase attributes by 2 instead of the one it is currently. More powerful potions can be made available as well, but I think those should have some sort of requirement for use.

So folks, feel free to jump in with suggestions if you want. Smile

Just wanted to make sure everyone read the edited section of the first post. Reign of Chaos is now available to download.

I'm double posting cuz that's how I roll. Insane

I don't always keep up with sayings. Do people even use that expression anymore? I have no idea, and well...I don't particularly care cuz that's how I roll

Signed,
Old lady poster - kathycf

I reloaded the maps and now the potions work!!!
I think I would make the potions that give a 2x boost show up half way through the map. Potions of higher levels I would make usable only after the character reaches 30 in any of the categories. For example is the character had a strength of 30 they could use the strength potion but if intelligence or dexterity where lower they could not.

Elf

Oh, good. I'm glad that it works. Smile

I will continue work on the mod tomorrow. I have a bad headache tonight so I'm going to bed at a really, really strange time for me: 10:30 PM. I mean, that's practically the middle of the afternoon on my night owl body clock.

Kathy you might try editing the generic Magic seller instead of specific magic sellers and have the potions show up in all shops on any map.

Now I really do not need the spells since I can max out Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence using Kane's Rings. In less time than it takes to collect enough money to buy a useful amount of the potions. The rings are easy to acquire and free using the good old faer-teh-badgar

Besides who needs potions of any type when your bow and armor are magical and you hang with this pack.

Elf

Take 2:

I made the templates for some higher level potions that increase stats by 2. These potions, plus the +1 attribute potions are for sale with Trianna in Elddim and Adwana in Stonebridge. These vendors have the potions for sale right now for testing purposes.

Thanks for the tip on the generic magic seller, lili. Smile I really don't want to change vendor templates because I think it can lead weirdness and undesirable things happening. While, yes, I do know about Kane's rings and how easy they are to get (+faertehbadgar) but I think these potions are useful for folks who just want to increase a stat or 2 by a small amount.

Plus, I have yet to finish tinkering with Kane's rings mod - yes, I unlocked it - Shock . Shock That mod should not have been locked in the first place since he took the idea right from a post in the Siege Network forums. There is also a recently added unlocked version available in the download area anyway.

Sorry I didn't post anything yesterday. I had a perfectly lovely headache that started Wednesday night and progressed into Thursday complete with nausea and dizziness and just all around "fun". Well, before I digress further... New potion mod is attached. Remove the old one before trying this one.
