  1. I can't tell you how much I love having the Christmas Island music playing while browsing the forums. Revamped Christmas skin looks fantastic!

    Sacred 2 Enhanced Edition

    I can put something together more like what you're describing. Will just require a lighter touch with the balance numbers.

    Sacred 2 Enhanced Edition

    Yeah... I'm trying to muster up some sympathy but the Challenge patch is supposed to be insane like that. Did you find the normal mod too easy? The one instruction for Challenge mode is and always has been, "for characters who are too powerful for the standard mod".

    Sacred 2 Enhanced Edition

    Bingo. I never really intended it for any but the most ultra powerful of characters. It was a direct response to criticisms that the mod was too easy. I wanted to leave something out there, entirely optional, that no one could ever call easy. BUT The mod is not supposed to have such discrepancy between boss/elite/normal type enemies like you're describing. If it's there in Challenge Mode then it's there in the "balanced" version too (just less noticeable) because both versions use the same creatures.txt. I suspect the normal and elite kobolds got somewhat buffed but I never touched Gahanka. I'll review the creature bonuses. In the early days of the mod some bonuses were copied over whole cloth from Survival Mod and that mod accidentally doubled or even tripled the amount of creature bonuses. I think I caught them all in the revising process but there may be some remaining. In the meantime I'd recommend just playing it without Challenge Mode. The base mod itself has the difficulty increased a good bit, and it should feel much better balanced.

    What are you eating

    I work in a medium sized office. Each department this week is having a "snack day" where they bring in all kind of goodies, like cupcakes, cookies, brownies, fudge... some people have made cheese balls and meatballs and today there was even a giant pot of sausage gravy and biscuits (southern U.S. biscuits, not cookies). I have resisted ALL OF IT so far, for the sake of staying true to the low-carb lifestyle I've been on for the last 10 months. Hardest week of my life. And it's only Tuesday. But... I and some of my work friends have organized a cookie day, for the Friday before Christmas. That event I AM contributing to, and I'm working really hard to be steadfast until that date. It really helps to have a reward at the end. I'm bringing peanut butter cookies. And of course Christmas week it will probably be no holds barred. I have most of the week off work, and there is a local business that sells the most wonderful peanut butter fudge this time of year. I will be enjoying that.

    Flix's Guitar Videos

    Here is an early Christmas present to get you into the holiday spirit. This has always been one of my favorite songs to play on guitar.

    Currently Watching...

    I've been watching The Great British Baking Show on Netflix. This show is total indulgence for me, because I've been low-carb for 10 months now (to fantastic effect) but oh how I miss my cupcakes! Gave Chilling Adventures of Sabrina a try but gave up after 6 or 7 episodes. The show seems confused about who its audience is, and whether it wants to be a gory satanic orgy or cutesy high school teen drama. Going to try Buster Scruggs next because literally everyone I know has been talking about it for days now.
  9. Hello! My first recommendation is to socket something the gold socket of your Boneslicer. Even it's just the Blacksmith art "Whet" it will help a bunch. Also, I recommend reading some more runes so that you can level up your combat arts, If your character is level 20, I'd say your combat arts should be at least level 5. Look for Regeneration per Hit rings and try to socket them in your gear if you feel your regeneration time are getting too high after leveling your CA's and buffs. That's just at a cursory glance.

    Schot's Sacred 2 Maps

    Yep. Forgot it was an absurdly huge PDF originally. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1z4cfQwYJ-VEI3S-noIchnr9_oeMKGx0v/view?usp=sharing FYI that dungeon map is the original/biggest/best that I know of.

    Skill.txt ?

    Not through the scripts, no. Skill functions are mostly hard coded.

    This song is called Lucidity. This one is improvisation. Instead of recording one of my dozens of old compositions (I've been too hard on myself for mistakes and tone issues), I decided to just record a fresh jam today. And this song just poured out. I hope you enjoy. Sometimes songs just seem to fall into your lap, and if you're lucky you record them while they're fresh on your mind. This tune just came flowing out this lazy Sunday afternoon as I was playing on the couch. This piece doesn't have any of the polish or precision of a rehearsed composition, it is raw and in a way more genuine. Maybe someday I will develop it into a more fleshed out song.
  15. 1. Yes. And melee CA's 2. Nope 3. Correct. This includes casting temp buffs, summoning things, etc.
