Did you already on acquisition condition?

I suppose you will gate the access with a difficult quest or something. Why not a taming quest ? Or a kill the mother to steal some eggs?

There's no quest yet, but there definitely should be, since the new mounts are more powerful than the standard ones. We were thinking of something that had several steps and would send you to several places with difficult challenges.

The interesting thing could be to have to fight the same model than the mount but as boss at the last stage of the quest.

example for the new mobiculum:

"We successfully assemble the part. But when we fuelled it with T-energy, it began to start on it self. Now, it run wild in near the village. If you put down the barrier that surround it, you will be able to shut it down" ....

just look at the dragon mount, they are very cool but some color look wrong. Don't feat thematically with there respective Aspect. The green one should be mod bluish and the yellow could look more purple, maybe.

Can you change color or is it beyond possibility ?

Colors can be changed of course, although it remains a matter of taste. It also depends on your monitor. For instance the 'yellow' dragon mount was intended to be black/yellow, but after I bought a new monitor I saw that the black parts actually have a purple shade in them - that wasn't intended at all.

I've gone back to work on Dimitriy's armored models. The Draconicon is now finished and ready to go. These mounts will be coming to you via my Diablo mod, but when they're all done I plan to release a version that can go on top of the normal game.

 

Primal Draconicon

Bursting with fire and flames, this Draconicon is geared toward Primal Magic (Dragon Magic).

Elemental Draconicon

Green as if grown from the very earth itself, this Draconicon is geared toward Elemental Magic.

Feral Draconicon

Infused with wild spiritual energy, this Draconicon is geared toward Nature Summons (Mentalism).

Savage Draconicon

A mix of all elements and abilities, while not excelling at any, this is a general purpose Draconicon.

The bonuses will actually be much greater at high levels, because these stats were taken in normal difficulty.

Thanks. I updated the Elemental and Savage Draconicon pics, changing the fx on their hooves.

 

Time for another round: Cyber-Tigers

 

Zealous Tiger

With hot magma running through its veins, this tiger is geared towards Sublime Combat (Exalted Warrior).

Galvanic Tiger

Infused with T-Energy, this tiger is geared toward Devout Offense (Celestial Magic)

Steadfast Tiger

This tiger is geared towards Blessed Defense (Revered Technology).

Irrepressible Tiger

A general purpose Cyber Tiger.

Credit goes to Dimitriy for making the model, Lazy Tomcat and Pesmontis for working on the model and textures, and Silver Fox for the bonuses and the bulk of the scripting. I'm just the guy who puts the final piece into a massive jigsaw puzzle and then shows it to everyone else.

Pesmontis said I must be riding "an avalanche of inspiration" right now so I guess I'll ride it all the way. :) Here's another mount update with the extras for the High Elf/Sorceress.

 

The High Elf is special because she gets bonus mounts. It wasn't planned that way from the start, it just so happened that she had multiple mounts designed by different modders, plus one that we found in the game files that was unused.

 

So, in addition the Dragons, she'll also get two armored Wind Serpents and the Lonely Hippocampus as mounts.

 

Argenteus Drake

The silver serpent, not geared toward any particular aspect, with a good chance to Block Combat Arts that scales with the Riding skill

Gb98HJOt.jpg jdaoc1ht.jpg nvYFit3t.jpg

 

eeHYUqO.jpg

 

 

Aureus Drake

The golden serpent, not geared towards any specific aspect, with a good chance to Block Close Combat that scales with the Riding Skill.

Hippocampus

The Lonely Hippocampus is lonely no more. Now you can travel Ancaria together. It seems he was actually designed to be a mount all along, at least at some point in the development he got all the needed bones and animations. He even has his own special mount icon that I found, although due to the game's coding, I wasn't able to include it. vspSN5M.png

The Hippocampus is a general purpose special mount, and has a Block Chance: Projectiles bonus that scales with the Riding skill.

That means there is only one mount remaining: the armored Monitor Lizard for the Dryad/Amazon. Although I previously showed pictures of Griffon and Nameless Guardian mounts, those were just prototypes rather than functioning mounts. So those are shelved indefinitely due to all the intense work required.

Last but not least, the armored battle monitors for the Amazon/Dryad.

 

Predator Lizard

Geared towards the Huntress Talents/Sinister Predator aspect.

Tempest Lizard

Geared towards the Storm Combat/Cabalistic Voodoo aspect.

TyhqS8lt.jpg 3NWJh5at.jpg C7XW1YXt.jpg qIzkmIlt.jpg

Chthonic Lizard

Geared towards the Amazon Magic/Nature Weaver aspect.

T2ud8kit.jpg 279vdIXt.jpg ClNsFZjt.jpg fFEErCft.jpg

Indomitable Lizard

A non-aspect, general purpose lizard. It's named so because of the resistance to stun and knockback immunity. The knockback immunity is unlocked by the Riding skill and though it doesn't show up on the mount's tooltip, you can see it in your list of bonuses.

Well, that effectively completes the project. I didn't expect this, but I guess I would have the version for the normal game ready before the next Diablo 2 Fallen release. I just need to copy all the script entries into the vanilla scripts, package everything, and test it. I'd probably change some of the mount names to be a little more appropriate for the standard aspects too.

Download Sacred 2 Elite Mounts v1.0

 

This mod adds new special mounts for all 7 characters. They can be purchased from a new special mount dealer deep in the Jungle.

 

Installation (with no other mods installed):

  • Download the Generic Mod Enabler (GME) and install it to your Sacred 2 root folder (the main folder where Sacred 2 is installed).
  • After running the GME once, it will make a folder called "MODS" there.
  • Extract the contents of the rar file and copy the "Elite Mounts v1.0" folder into the "MODS" folder.
  • Run the GME and enable Elite Mounts v1.0. It may take a moment to install. The GME will back up your clean files and will allow to you to easily enable/disable the mod as you wish.


The mod also comes with compatibility patches for some of the more popular Sacred 2 mods. Use the Generic Mod Enabler to activate them in the order described below.

 

Installation order if using other mods:

  1. Wardust's Serious Textures Mod (textures and models only, no scripts)
  2. Enhanced Spells Mod or Survival Mod or Llama's CM Patch Mod (choose one, these three mods are not compatible with each other)
  3. Elite Mounts Mod
  4. Compatibility Patch for Wardust's Serious Textures
  5. Compatibility Patch for whichever mod you chose to install at #2

The Mod Enabler will warn you that certain files are being overwritten, but this is fine so long as you install them in order. Disable them in reverse order.

 

This mod is NOT compatible with:

  • Sacred 2 Nude Mod by Ize
  • Diablo 2 Fallen (mounts are integrated into this mod)
  • Any older mod not updated for CM Patch 1.50


This mod should work just fine with Fleet's Nude Skins and any music / sound mods.


Credits:

This mod is the work of many people over several years.

  • dimitrius154 designed the armored models of the original 7 mounts
  • LazyTomcat and czevak continued to work on implementing the mounts' models and textures
  • Pesmontis made the dragon mount as well as further refining various mount models and textures
  • Silver Fox added the special mount trader, worked on textures and names, and did the bulk of the necessary scripting
  • I (Flix) did some textures, scripting, icons, and put the finishing touches on the project to make it ready for publishing

It was always intended to be part of the CM Patch. I'll submit it on the bugtracker and see what they say. By rights there should be a quest beforehand, maybe Marcus can help with that.

 

BTW the only hint I'm giving you is that the new special mount trader is in the Jungle. It's a small region. ;)
