A long (long) time ago I played an awesome RPG named Earthdawn.  One of the fun features it has is equipment that grows in power as your characters do.  So why can't we have that in M&B?

NOW YOU CAN!

This stuff is free to use for anyone who can figure out how to make it work, just give credit when releasing to other people.

How it works:
The system is pretty simple.  I eat up to 8 slots on each item and at least one item tuple per item level.  For mods that have *TONS* of items, this is not going to be ideal.  At init time I set up a bunch of data manually on each artifact item.  The setup data on an item includes a slot to see if it's an artifact, a slot storing its current exp, a slot storing its max exp until level, a slot storing the item it morphs into when it does level, and three effects that the item can give when equipped. 

There are two scripts that are crucial here:  script_game_get_item_extra_text which is used to put the nice rollover text to tell you how uber your stuff is, and script_game_get_skill_modifier_for_troop which adds the actual bonus.  There's a little messiness because I didn't want to use two slots per effect type so I bit packed it into the same value (second most significant byte is the value, lowest byte is the skill).  There's also a pile of utility scripts that push data around for ease of use and a hook that you can put into your mod for adding exp to the item.

As an added note, the slots used to store this stuff are shared for all items of a given type.  If there's a way to stick slots on an item instance, I don't know what it is.  This mod (at least the levelling bits) is for unique items only.

Also!  For those of you familiar with KON_Air's awesome set mod, I use some of the same tricks.  The two should be compatible for anyone willing to monkey with it a bit.

The code is pretty straightforward.  It's entirely possible that I've forgotten some part of it.  Let me know when you find those.  Also, I've tested this a bit but not tremendously so when you find bugs, let me know about those too.  Finally, I didn't fill everything out for all skills; I'm lazy.  It should be pretty clear what needs to be added and I've left some comments as well.

Stuff in module_constants.py which I stuck after the other item slot stuff:
# kt0:  added these
kt_slot_item_experience = 5 # currently earned experience
kt_slot_item_max_experience = 6 # max experience for this item level (not cumulative)
kt_slot_item_next_item = 7 # next item in the chain, 0 for none (can't start item list with artifacts)
kt_slot_item_is_artifact = 8 # is or isn't, no other values
kt_slot_item_effect1 = 9 # effect type #1
kt_slot_item_effect2 = 10 # effect type #2
kt_slot_item_effect3 = 11 # effect type #3

# stuff that goes into item slots but that aren't slots themselves
# we keep the high 16 bits for the value and the low 16 bits for
# the skill ID so a zero check on the slot is all we need.

# these are basically the ones i use because i'm too lazy to write out the
# code to add them inline. 
kt_item_effect_power_strike_1 = 65571
kt_item_effect_power_strike_2 = 131107
kt_item_effect_power_strike_3 = 196643
kt_item_effect_power_strike_4 = 262179
kt_item_effect_power_strike_5 = 327715
kt_item_effect_tactics_5 = 327695

New scripts in module_scripts.py (I stuck mine at the bottom):

# intended that way.  adds to all equipped artifacts though again, doesn't
# necessarily need to be that way.

Stuff that you can stick wherever you like to make the items gain levels:
Do whatever with this.  I'll probably stick mine with renown.

kt0 that sounds like an epic script, but im not sure what it does, if im right, as your character level up (and stats increase) your equipment does too? Like lets say your level 10, your gear will have X armor, then at lvl 20 it will have X+20 ? Or am I wrong, what do you mean exactly?

That's the basic idea.  I left it open as to where you stick the levelling part.  Player EXP is the obvious place, but renown gain, honor gain, time based trigger, etc. are also possibilities.  I currently have mine hooked up to renown hence the smallish values for needed xp.  I also have it hooked up to a mod menu for testing.

If you trace through the Sword of Ultimate Overkill's levels (under test data spoiler) you can see that it gains speed and damage as it levels.  You can pretty much work with any item this way.  You can even change how they look between levels since it swaps out the item ID.  I haven't figured out how to change attributes or proficiencies if you can even do that.

adding skill bonuses is easy enough, you just need to alter the script that handles these bonuses so it checks for a slot on the item and then adds a bonus. I use that for the starships in SWC, they give several skill bonuses.

attribute bonus doesn't exist. Of course it's easy enough to fake this with some sort of trigger. When the item gets equiped, raise str by 1, when it's no longer equiped, lower str by 1 (for instance). Problem is that this won't change the attribute color, so the player won't know he has a bonus. But you might be able to change the colors somewhere as well, the fact that it's done on the fly for skills means it's probably somewhere in the code, doesn't seem like something you'd hardcode.

Nice idea btw! Have some truly epic weapons and make them level up to become more powerful.

I'm pretty much a newbie in M&B modding, and I've been wondering how can I make a crossbow shoot a unique projectile instead of the default bolt. Can somebody please enlighten me ?

Why not tie it in to when you make a kill with that weapon?  Kind of like a demon weapon stealing the souls of those that are slain by it.  Yes an obvious fantasy bit, but so is having a weapon level up.

Just on a note, this is a major advantage to the player, and weapons like this should be limited (other than being unique) in an actual game setting, unless you like the kind of game you can't lose in.

I leave all such judgements up to the mod developers.  I've been disabused over the years of the notion that I can do more than throw words at designers when presenting them with a piece of functionality.  :wink:

I hate the thought that a highly trained elite troop is just as unhappy about marauding about the countryside in a large party as a newly recruited peasant.  In later portions of the game (mods especially) it is super hard to keep a large army happy because of the dearth of suitable targets and the speed at which morale decays.  The following code attempts to fix this by taking troop level into account when determining morale penalty based on size. 

In module_scripts.py look for get_player_party_morale_values:
# script_get_player_party_morale_values
# Output: reg0 = player_party_morale_target
# kt0: refactored the party size morale values.
("get_player_party_morale_values",
[
# calculate the total number of guys and the cumulative level of the
# party.

(val_div, ":morale_penalty_for_size", ":level_total"),
     
# the math works great for large numbers but not so great for small ones.

(assign, ":morale_penalty_for_size", ":double"),
(try_end),

(assign, "$g_player_party_morale_modifier_party_size", ":morale_penalty_for_size"),

Stuff unchanged for context:
(store_skill_level, ":player_leadership", "skl_leadership", "trp_player"),
(store_mul, "$g_player_party_morale_modifier_leadership", ":player_leadership", 7),
(assign, ":new_morale", "$g_player_party_morale_modifier_leadership"),
(val_sub, ":new_morale", "$g_player_party_morale_modifier_party_size"),
(val_add, ":new_morale", 50),

With this change, higher level troops are more content to be in large bands which makes keeping larger armies far more convenient.  The function is not linear which confounds easy comparisons to the old system but the break even point is around level 5 with lower levels having a far greater penalty and higher levels having far less penalty.  Feel free to tweak for your needs.  As always, credit for use in publically released mods would be swell.

The following goes in your module_dialogs.py.  It must precede or replace the native prisoner dialogs (if you place it after, then it will be ignored in favor of the native code).

Please note that slto_dead is not a native symbol - if you want to use the above you'll also need to add slto_dead = 86 in your module_constants.py.

Please note that slot_prisoner_agreed is not a native symbol - simply add slot_prisoner_agreed = 142 to your module_constants.py.  Actually, 142 is arbitrary - any unused slot will do.

Additionally, you'll need to add this script to module_scripts.py - I added it towards the end, as the last script in the file, but you're welcome to place it anywhere within the list of scripts within that file:

The latest code that I sent you has various dependencies on SoD features.  e.g. the debug_color.  Just define one in your module_constants.py, or comment out the debug statements (they're only there to debug it).

e.g.:

debug_color = 0xFFFF0000      # solid red

Similarly, most debug sections are inside of a (try_begin), (eq, "$g_sod_debug", 1) ...  Simply comment out the entire debug block, or go ahead and add a $g_sod_debug to your mod (assign it to zero in script_start_game), and add yourself a menu option to set it to 1 when you want to see debug messages (and you can easily extend that to all of your work - simply put debug messages within try blocks that are enabled if your debug global is set to true (1).

There are probably a bunch of other dependencies in there - e.g. I reference trp_ief_*   which are the SoD faction that attacks later in the game.  Those won't be in your module, so you'll have to swap out those references with ones that make sense in your game.  e.g. that section of code determines which faction a given troop belongs to, since M&B don't store that info with troops (they're normally fac_neutral).  So, I have a series of (is_between, <first_troop>,<last_troop>+1) type statements to figure out their real faction.  So just look in your module_troop.py file and figure out what makes sense in your mod.  e.g. take out the section that has to do with the IEF, and instead look to see what troop follows the Rhodocks, and place that instead of the ief as the terminal end of the Rhodocks range.

I think I probably added another slot since I wrote the above as well, to ensure that you can't just keep asking the troop over & over until you get a good roll - so it remembers when you last talked to them and forces you to wait for the next day before trying again.  The slot number you  use for that can be any unused troop slot in your mod.  If you're not using troop slot #232, then assign that to it (Its up to you to figure out for your mod which slots you're using on which entity types.  So for troops, you're using one set of slots, which has nothing to do with parties, or factions, and so on).

Does that all make sense?

What's this?  Two BLAMs in one day?!  Yes!  (Previous BLAM here, re:  freecam after death http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,63178.msg1641483.html#msg1641483).

I hate the phrase "Kingdom Management" because people bandy it about with seeming indifference typically referring to Highlander's AoM implementation which just about every mod under the sun seems to use.  Undaunted by this, I built my own because I'm like that.  Here's one tasty bit of it in presentation form.

This is a very simple presentation that chugs through all the centers on the map and displays a list of them belonging to the player's faction while printing out some useful information.  It could be easily modified for various nefarious purposes not limited to changing the faction compared against, changing the data displayed, and color coding stuff in a more useful way.  Stuff it at the bottom of module_presentations.py and call from a menu or whatnot as you desire.  It handles multiple pages of stuff reasonably well adding "more" and "prev" buttons at the bottom when it's called for.

As always, credit if the code is used in a released mod would be swell.

Some caveats:
- it's a data window, so it's pretty dense (see screenie) and there's no pretty picture
- you will need to define kt_slot_faction_line_count somewhere like module_constants.py to 20 or so which is the number of entries per page
- there's a hefty gap between the lord and prosperity column where I stash some of my mod-specific stuff which you can see in the screenie (I also have different buildings)
- you probably don't want the presentation to bail back to the camp menu
- for the love of all that you hold dear, clear $g_kt_menu_count to zero before you start the presentation
- if you've added buildings, it's reasonably straightforward to add them to the list
- this isn't the exact code I use; mine has some other trickery and some extra stuff so I haven't tested exactly this code

Screenie:

5-11-2009:  fixed a bug where the counts were off (my test case was where I owned all the fiefs)
