Ok everyone it's time! I'm planning to release soon. I got a private test build ready and I want this tested and abused as much as possible before release. Especially the hardcore mode. I'd hate to erase people's progress just because of a silly mistake of mine.

So, PM me or make a post here if you want a private test build. If you host this in TSPG keep the wads private if you can. (I hope TSPG allows that, not sure) The reason, again, is the database stuff.

Status update: Not dead, the release will be delayed a bit due to crashes not being fixed, still. Most other bugs are ironed out but it's pretty much crashes being the problem as of now. Stay tuned, and if you want to help private testing, as usual, post here or PM me.

I have recently fallen in love with this mod, especially after figuring out the possibility of such ridiculous builds as melee-vampirism. (Scythe + ring of talos + high strength, dexterity, and bulkiness + melee and occult talents)

The way I am currently finding joy in playing this is in a compilation wad (currently compendium) in singleplayer with allresearchesfound disabled. Basically I tweak values as I get more powerful to keep the playing field even, and tweaking droprates and money rates slightly as I make the monsters more powerful in compensation. Basically, I like to see the big numbers fly. Unfortunately researches seem kinda broken as I noticed some things are purchasable without even having researched them, such as the entire selection of locked abilities. I do hope this gets fixed in the next update, which I am excited for to be honest.

Yeah the version you're playing doesn't have them implemented properly, therefore they aren't going to work. I was simply laying the foundations for that system at the time so I pretty much left the "toggle" working and rest in an "acceptable" state :P

New version will be released this weekend despite the crash problems not being resolved, however I intend to share a specific debug client that might help track the issue so, who knows. All the delay will hopefully be worth it.

And here comes the release! Enjoy! Please also help me fix crashes by using this debug build: http://www.mediafire.com/file/6dnkav94y ... ashLogs.7z

Download: Link

Do pay attention to the changelog below to know how to setup and play with Hardcore mode!
Spoiler: Changelog (Open)
LEGEND:

- Nerf
+ Buff
! New feature
* Bugfix / Tweak

=====================
== DND RPG RELATED ==
=====================

! "Hardcore Mode" finally is ready! Read below!
! Elite monsters now have sparkles around them so that you can tell they have special properties.
! Added new weapons: "Dusk Blade", "Inferno Sword", "Acid Rifle", "Frost Fang", "Ruby Wand", "Akimbo Berettas", "Plasma Bolter", "Shocker", "Thunder Staff", "Heavy Grenade Launcher", "Freezer Cannon", "Viper Staff".
! Added new researches: "Dusk Blade", "Inferno Sword", "Acid Rifle", "Shocker", "Thunder Staff", "Heavy Grenade Launcher", "Freezer Cannon", "Viper Staff".
! Added new elite traits: "Physical Immune", "Extra Strong", "Vital", "Energy Resist", "Energy Immune", "Armor Penetration".
- Extra strong adds 50% more damage to the monster's attacks.
- Vital makes the monster have twice as much health. This is added on top of all calculations, so for example if player counts scale monster health, this doubles that as well.
- The difference of "Armor Penetration" compared to "Pierces Armor" is that, the latter implies that at least some attacks of the monster will pierce the armor, not all. The former implies ALL attacks will pierce armor.
! Added a new stat: "Intellect". It's basically "Dexterity" but for occult weapons now. (In the future it will have more uses)
! Added the CVar: "dnd_enable_elites" to enable or disable elite spawns.
! Added limited respawn items! Now ammos present in the map spawn for a limited time only. Control this behavior using the cvars: "dnd_enable_limiteditems" and "dnd_limitedrespawn_amount".
! Added a new alt fire to "Sun Staff". Now calls light beams from heavens to crush enemies. Also fixes a problem where it wouldn't scale with talents before.
! Armor system completely reworked! We are now using a custom armor system, details below.
! "Strength" now increases your armor capacity by 2 per point.
! Energy type weapons are no longer the weapons that deal full damage regardless. They also require "Nether Mask" to do full damage against resistant enemies now.
! Slot 3 weapon page on the menu is split into two now.
! Added a little notifier that you have unspent points after leveling up.
! Added quests! See below for more information.
! You can now use scroll up/down in some of the menu texts. Use forward/backward movement keys.
! Improved weapon and monster damage calculation methods. These should cause less traffic usage on servers now.
! Added improved fluid textures.
! Weapon damage types are now represented by icons in the shop at the top left corner. You can use these to know what damage type your weapon will have.
! Armors and backpacks are now shared just like health kits!
! Elite spawn rates increase with player level now.
! Added a new item respawn FX and sound.
! Poison damage by monsters is reworked! We now use a custom poison system. Details below.
! Removed left, return and right arrow buttons at some pages. You can use left/right arrow keys to move between pages now.
! Added previous page, return and next page buttons. They will keep track of which pages you browse through the menu and you'll be able to simply go back or ahead in the order you browsed. (Much like undo/redo)
! Critical hits are reworked! They are now applied in a more uniform way compared to before.
! Added two new perks: "Savagery" -- Improves your critical damage output by an additional 10% per point spent and "Luck": Increases drop chances by 1.5%.
! Added a small preview of rare drops from elites! They can now various types of orbs of immense value. These can be found at the bottom.
! Ability page is split into two, and their help message is at the bottom side of the page instead of the corner.
! Weapon loadout page has been changed completely! Now you can see all stats of the weapons you own, and scroll up/down!
! Map toast and full secret found rewards are changed. Map toast now fully heals players. Secret reward will give you 2k budget per map difficulty.
! Accessory selection menu has been reworked! It now allows mouse control and scrolling. Simply click on the label of the accessory you wish to equip. You can unequip simply by clicking it again.
! You can now fast scroll left and right on the research page of the menu. Just hold the button.
! You can control when elites will start spawning now. Default is average player level of 10. Can use "dnd_elite_spawnlevel" CVar to control.
! You now need "Talent Point"s to buy talents, as well as the credit cost. Talent points can be acquired every 4 levels or by random drops from monsters. Drop chance is 1.5%, for all monsters.

========================
== HARDCORE MODE INFO ==
========================

- Hardcore mode is all about persistent characters. Between every successful map exit, your character will be saved if "dnd_hardcore" is true.
- You will be asked to login to your account upon entry. You may choose to not login, but your session won't be saved if you do so.
- Logging in is done by using the "login username password" command.
- You can load your previously saved character using "loadme x" command on console, where x is your character id.
- You can set your character id (between 1 - 4, both inclusive) using "setchar x" command. Default is 1.
- You have 10 seconds at the beginning of each map to load a character. Once this time passes, you can no longer load a character. You can however still login, and have your stat saved under the default character id, which is 1.
* It is advised you setchar to something other than 1 if your main character is in slot 1 if you couldn't load in time, as it will overwrite progress of it at the end of the map.
- After logging in, you'll have access to your characters, total of 4 slots. You'll be able to select character slot to save to using "setchar X" with X being between 1 and 4, both inclusive.
- After the end of each map your progress is saved. However, due to exploiting, spectating or getting disconnected won't save your progress.
- Once you rejoin a server and wish to continue, simply type "loadme X" with X being the character slot from above.
- If you lose all your lives (which is 1 for hardcore) you lose your character permanently. If you choose to spectate, your progress on that map becomes invalidated.
- Even if someone finishes the map succesfully, the moment you die: You lose all.
- In order to load your character, you have to type "loadme" to console. However, you can do this once per session (ie. disconnect / spectating resets this). You also can't load during map countdowns.
- Rules of the game also change in this mode. Notably:

* You take 25% more damage.
* Monsters have fixed scaling, which is 5% for health and damage each level.
* You start with no researches. Your completed researches are saved.
* You have to discover and research things you are used to having in normal DnD modes, using a new resource named "Budget" earned at the end of map completions.
* Budget gain rate depends on map's difficulty.
* Research drop rate is 0.5%. (Any kind of monster can drop these however, and it is the same chance for all)
* There is a fixed range for gaining exp and credit. This is 768 units.
* Accessory drop rate is 6%. (Only strong monsters can drop these and this is double that of normal drop rate)
* Items respawn for a limited amount only. This is 2 times. (This only applies to things that are 'allowed' to respawn. So medkits and stuff will still not respawn if not allowed)
* No heal on level up.
* Player count will scale monsters' healths multiplicatively.
* Minimum level to have an accessory drop is 20.
* Minimum level for a monster to drop an accessory is 24.
* Credit and exp scale are both 2. (Double that of normal rules)
* Budget gain rate is doubled.
* Quests have a fixed chance of 20% to appear. Completed quests are saved and are treated as permanent rewards.
* Quests appear only after level 25.
* Legendary monsters can start to spawn after level 25. Their spawn chance is 1%.

- You can set all of the above rules automatically using the "sethardcore" command as the server.

========================
== POISON SYSTEM INFO ==
========================

- In this new poison system, you can be afflicted by at most 5 different sources of poison. This means 5 different monster actors (not types!) at a time.
- If a monster that has previously poisoned you before poisons you again, it simply overwrites the duration of it, ie. refreshing it.
- Poison damages can kick in at different times, depending on when they were received. The period of any poison damage is 1 second.
- If you get afflicted by a poison when you are already afflicted by 5, the one with lowest duration will be replaced by the most recent one.
- Poison damage scales with monster level now, as with any other damage from monsters.

========================
== QUEST INFO ==
========================

- Quests are little challenges presented to all players who are currently alive in the game.

==========================
==== ELITE DROPS INFO ====
==========================

* Elites have a 5% chance of dropping a rare item, called an "Orb". These can be used for various things to empower you in different ways.
* You can add to the drop rate with the cvar: dnd_orb_dropchanceadd. Values between 0 - 100.

1. Orb of Enhancement

Allows the user to improve the quality of the currently selected weapon upon use, increasing its damage.
Increases damage of selected weapon by 1%, up to 25% total.

2. Orb of Spirit

Grants the user a random stat upon use, with each stat having a certain weight.
Stats can go above 100 with this orb, but you still can't get above 100 by leveling.
Charisma has lowest weight, followed by Vitality and Bulkiness. Dexterity, Strength and Intellect have highest weight.

3. Orb of Corruption

A very rare and unpredictable orb. All effects of this orb are permanent unless stated otherwise.
Can do any of the following:

* Nothing

* Reduce health capacity by 10. (Will not drop below 100, which is base)
* Reduce current weapon damage by 10%. (Can drop it down to 0)
* Reduce movement speed by 2.5%. (Won't reduce below 50% movement speed)
* Take all ammo away. (Can still buy etc.)
* Reduce backpack count by 1.
* Reduce damage by 75% for the duration of the map. (Not affected by Orb of Affluence)

* Increase current weapon damage by 20%. (Max 400%)
* Grant current weapon 5% increased critical strike chance. (Max 100%)
* Add 25% additional critical hit damage to current weapon. (Max 200%)
* Increase movement speed by 5%. (Won't increase above 150% movement speed)
* 1% additional chance of rare drops from elites. (Max 20%)
* Give +5 to a random stat. (Follows stat rules of orbs)

Chance to do something bad is higher than chance to do something good. (30% vs 20%) Chance to do nothing is 50%.
Also, a hint: It's chance to do something increases should the conditions of other things it can do are reached.
Example: If you already maxed out on 3 bad things it can do, chances of it doing a good thing increase by the reduction of those 3. (So 35% chance to do something good)
The above example can work the other way around as well, so be careful!

4. Orb of Repentance

This orb is one of the rarest, even rarer than Orb of Corruption. It allows you to undo the effect of the most recently used orb.
You can't repent the effects of another Orb of Repentance or the Orb of Riches.

5. Orb of Calamity

Turns a random orb in your inventory into another. It can't turn into another Orb of Calamity nor will it change an Orb of Calamity.
If you have no other orbs, then it'll do nothing.
If you get an Orb of Repentance through this, and if you use Orb of Repentance, you'll get back your Orb of Calamity.

6. Orb of Affluence

The rarest of all the orbs by far. It doubles the effects of the next orb you use.
This can stack. So if you use another Orb of Affluence, your next orb effect will be quadrupled etc.
Max stack is 16 times the effect, which is 4 orb uses.
If the use of an orb under this effect violates the requirements, it won't be used.
Example: Your Orb of Affluence quadrupled the effect of next orb. If you use Orb of Sin and have not enough stats to spend, you'll not be able to use the orb.

7. Orb of Prosperity

Increases health and armor caps by 1. (Max 500)

8. Orb of Wisdom

Increases exp gain from monsters by 1%. (Max 250%)

9. Orb of Greed

Increases credit gain from monsters by 1%. (Max 250%)

10. Orb of Violence

Increases a random damage type's damage by 1%. (Bullet, shell, elemental etc., max 300% for each category)

11. Orb of Fortitude

Another very rare orb. Increases health and armor caps by 1%. (Max 200%)

12. Orb of Sin

The second rarest orb. It provides bonuses but takes away anywhere between a total of 1 to 8 randomly selected allocated stat points.
Orb of Sin can't be used if you have less than 8 allocated stat points.
The orb can do the following with equal probability:

- Give 4 random stat points.
- Give 1% crit chance for a random weapon you own. (Max +20% on a weapon)
- Give 5% crit damage modifier for a random weapon you own. (Max +100% on a weapon)
- Give a random perk point.

13. Orb of Riches

Grants a random resource on use. Can grant experience, credit or budget.
Base values are 5% of your current level's exp, 2000 and 5k respectively.
Chances for the resources are 20%, 70% and 10% respectively.
Effects of this orb can't be undone.

14. Orb of Holding

Increases your ammo capacities by 1%. (Max 100%)
Doesn't increase the capacity of "Souls" or temporary weapons.


===========================
==== ARMOR SYSTEM INFO ====
===========================

There have been some changes to how the armor is handled. These are:

- Your armor cap is calculated based on the armor's base point. So, a green armor and blue armor have different caps because of this. (100 and 200 respectively)
- When you pick up an armor when your points are low, the new armor's type will be based on the tier of the armor instead of being completely replaced by whatever is picked.
- Armor tier is calculated by the amount of armor it provides. So, if you try to pick a green armor with a duelist armor on, you won't get rid of your duelist armor. (100 < 150)
- Armor bonus pickups can increase your armor up to twice the cap of that armor. This cap includes all bonuses applied.
