Download is ready. To use it put it into your Academagia/Mods folder and when you start a new game enable DLC 16 Bug Fix 1.0 and put it below the official The New and Returned.

 

(Be warned I didn't manage to test it so fare so there might be some problems I didn't expect)

Usual it take a bit till they connect to my cloud but in this time there is a cloud displayed surrounded with a loading bar.

Well, worst comes to worst I suppose you could just dump the files on filedropper for a 'sec. It won't last, but it should last at least a day or so, long enough for me to grab it.

 

Does that above download contain the code or just the published mod, BTW? If the former I could try using other devises in case it's on my end (the very, very few that I have).

Yeah, understandable. You probably want them to be separate downloads anyway, because not everyone will want the mod file and no one wants to download and extra ~160-350mb worth of unwanted data, depending on whether you compress it. Even so, throw the mod file somewhere and I'll be able to get to add my own fixes to it. I'll be going to bed in a two hours max and won't wake up for another eight at bare minimum anyway, so you've got plenty of time.

If anyone has any more ideas, I'm willing to listen. I think I might publish my changes tomorrow and throw up a download link then, to give people a chance to recommend additional changes and to give me a chance to wake up early and have my PC do half the publishing work while I just nap the hours away. In the meantime I'll be trying to think of more things myself, and if so I'll edit the post accordingly, but beyond that I think that's the bulk of my contribution.

 

EDIT 1: Updated change log (Banquet, Bluff and Greengrocer, for those curious).

EDIT 2: Updated - changes made to Overwhelming Evidence action, Study action, and Exotic Familiar reference table.

EDIT 3: Updated - changes made to several skills

That's a possibility and an unfortunate limitation of the mod tools. Basically, we can't correctly forbid the other Familiar backgrounds when you pick the Strange Doll one (or vice versa), so people using this patch will have to remember that and not pick two Familiar backgrounds - they don't work together anyway, so there's no reason to.

 

If you're curious as to why the Strange Doll was given a background and taken off the Exotic list when it clearly presents this problem, BTW, it has to do with the Strange Doll's intro adventure and Exchange Familiar...though Schwarzbart should have the details...

Yes Its sadly something we can't prevent that why the warning in the doll familiar to not do it!

The problem is that if you get the Strange Doll from Exchange Familiar you never can start the Bound Adventure line for it and that is the reason the Strange Doll was removed from the random list and got its own background.

I know its not the best way to do it this way given our limitations but the alternative for us would to only disable the doll so it can't be gained at all what would be really sad.

Speaking of which, DLC 16 Fan Patch v1.1: Link. Changelog is in the...oh it's right up there. You can find that, can't you?

 

Mod tool file is here, so you can check the actual code if you wish.

It's readable enough, I'm more interested in how well it (doesn't) work. The last mod I made certainly didn't perform up to standard, I can tell you that.

Study:

-Added +1 SS to random known skill (since these days you start with Study at the Venalicium Library, Study itself is otherwise useless)

-Updated description to match current function

Now abilities like The Venelicium Library: Study Cubicle 65 or Study at Tertoliod's Observatory becomes complete useless. So far they where interesting once Study at the Venalicium Library no longer could increase Research skills but now Study is in all cases superior to them.

 

Edit: for next version Enchanted Horn should be changed from Hand to Music Instrument

The Enchanted Horn isn't in the 1.0.0 .amo, so that can't be changed unfortunately.

 

As for the two abilities mentioned, they're not entirely useless. Study now gives +1 to a random known skill, which could be anything from Brute Strength to Mastery Methods, if you have the latter informed. Study Cubicle 65 and Tertoliod's Observatory expand either a set or very narrow set of skills, so if you want to study those you're better off skipping the basic Study action.

 

The actual useless ability is Study in Ballos's Specialized Studies Center, which beyond being tied to the Blackmail research location is a carbon copy of the Venalicium (which means that if one is useless, so is the other). I'd have changed that, have the location be revealed by Cartography 1 and even added a "Tour the 'city' of Ballos" ability that would inform you of all the relevant locations there so they'd all be easy to access, but all of those location and their respective ability changed significantly over the course of 1.0.0 to DLC 16 (well, 15, mod base and all), so I wasn't entirely sure what I could change, what I should change and how. I am still mulling over how to make those locations interesting, accessible and useful, but right now I'm just waiting for confirmation that the changes I've made so far actually work.

No the problem is this 2 abilities level up skills you learn via class so they are just a bit better then study without anything else and also have the downside that the location is fixed in opposite to study.

Yeah, that is a problem, and I'll admit that I don't get the point of Tertoliod's Observatory considering, you know, the Mantle of Stars (especially when you have to be enrolled in Astrology class to fully abuse it). Let's see...I can change Study Cubicle #65 to hand out Music Theory instead, since Music class doesn't teach that skill, which would at least be something (matter a fact I just did). As for Tertoliod's Observatory...eh...I got nothing so far.

 

As for study not being bound to a location, I don't really have a problem with it. There's very few locations with appreciable effects and even fewer opportunities to use them, so having a chance to use the places you've found is a good thing. If you're fine with the Chance of Detection, anyway.

True, however it's more than likely that anyone enrolled in Astrology is also enrolled in Geometry, in which case that's also a class skill. At least everyone in Avila will be. Still, I suppose something that's situationally useful is still better than something that's not useful. I'll add that.

 

...Actually, scratch that first part. Baldassare Monetario is a lazy, lazy professor that doesn't teach Astronomy. Okay, that'll be done and made rather useful for Astrology students. One thing, though - the Tertoliod's Observatory Location is Planets 9, and by that time you've likely studied for that class already. Should I switch two skill perks so that the location comes earlier or just leave people to either rush Planets or Explore if they want the location?

Actually, change log for 1.2 so far:

 

 

Abilities/Actions:
Study at Tertoliod's Observatory:
-Changed +1 random Astrology SS to +1 Astronomy SS
-Updated description to match current function

The Venalicium Library: Study Cubicle 65:
-Changed +1 Notation SS to +1 Music Theory SS (since Music class doesn't actually teach the latter)
-Changed description to match current function

Locations:
Godina Park: Icanyke’s Statue:
-Updated description to match it's tied ability's effect

Tertoliod's Observatory:
-Updated description to match it's tied abilities' effects

The Venalicium Library: Study Cubicle #65:
-Updated description to match it's tied ability's effect

 

Forgot to update Icanyke's Statue location in the 1.1 version. Silly of me, I know. Also, comments on switching Planets 9 with an earlier perk?

 

EDIT: Looking into Ballos' Specialized Studies Center, I've come to realize that the location's relevant ability wasn't just changed, but also renamed (or replaced, I'm not sure). As such I have no idea if I can even change it without having bizarre stuff happen. The same is true for pretty much all other of Ballos' locations. A great shame, because I was hoping to make them all placed to increase Study Levels of various sorts, so as to plug the fact that Study in the Venalicium Library is pretty much the end-all point for any and all studying. Well, unless you befriend Zoe, at any rate.

 

...Unless you befriend Zoe? Does rebalancing Clique abilities count as bugfixes, actually? I mean I wouldn't nerf Zoe's Clique ability or stuff like that, but people like Zorzi's could use a buff, right? I mean his is not functionally useless like Tacito's is in the base game, but his is close enough to functionally useless, right?

About the Incantors' Workshop should probably move up to theory 3 while the Theory of Incantation SL III and IV Lore are moved down to 6 and 8. (at last if the wiki is still correct with the placement)

 

Observation:

-Changed skill description to note the dominant attribute as Intelligence (which isn't actually true in 1.0.0, but is in DLC 15 and up)

 

Planning:

-Changed skill description to note the dominant attribute as Insight (which isn't actually true in 1.0.0, but is in DLC 15 and up)

I hope with the change we only overwrite the description and not the complete skill as I heard the mod tool would do.

 

About clique abilities I don't think we should mess around there unless something is serious broken as it was repeat told they will change in year 2 and some that are horrible this year will be great in the next years while some great one will become horible.

 

Edit: Just found something we have broken ... School Survival the 2 new skills (Field Medicine & Test Taking) don't show up in the Expand Choice of Subskill! So if we change something at the main skill we probably also overwrite the reverence of the sub skills with the one of version 1.0 and if there was a new skill added in a DLC we break it!
