Modtool and wiki questions

Recommended Posts

Legate,

 

I just have a few questions. Even though my focus is currently on the students, I am still looking around to the other areas.

 

One of these areas concerns research and locations. I cannot find anything about research, nor on which location unlocks which research topic.

I also have a hard time finding out how certain locations get unlocked? For instance I have seen that there is a Jhonas Librarium and according to info in the wiki someone else added, that unlocks the research topic for History - The Captivity of Man.

Where is this information stored in the modtool?

 

Another question concerns the AI. There are several AI entries, which one is used in which situation?

I can imagine that AI - Vendetta is triggered when the Student enters a vendetta with the PC or another NPC. But what about the others?

 

Greetings,

Draigh

 

EDIT: I think I found the Research-information in the location itself under Topic.

Any way to find out how the location gets unlocked? Or is that by random Exploration alone?

Sorry the only way I found so fare in the mod tool when what is unlooked is to go trough each SS and then have a look at each seperat Skill Perk. (yes for most you have to klick and then edit it to get the needed info)

Remember that certain events and random explore actions can also open areas for research. Other than that, it's tied to skill steps. You can find a list of the research locations on the wiki.

 

One problem I have found is that if you research a skill that you don't currently have (Puzzles, for instance), you will not receive the bonus once you reach level 10 in research.

What Schwarzbart and Retired_Deer have said is correct.

 

For the AI Tables, all of them are active at the beginning with the exception of Vendetta which, as you note, becomes active in the event of a Rivalry.

 

Hope that helps! :)

It could be reworked to do as you suggest, especially if the Informs occurred at an earlier Research Level. This has actually been previously suggested by other Academagians, and it's a good idea- but no ETA for this revision yet. ;)
