Is this getting implemented?
« on: January 18, 2012, 03:38:54 PM »
In the 1.70 post there was a list of all of the changes. There is one that I am curious if PotM is going to implement for the players to use.

what is all fixed/added with this particular patch btw?

- baseitems.2da
   - added DOA Baseitem Models 2.0 (DOA team), dyes are not included
   - torch enchant AC type changed from none to shield
   - creature skin is now unaffected by ILR, will always have zero cost
   - whip can be dual wielded (Ben Harrison)
   - helmets now can utilize model numbers up to 100 (NWNEnhanced team)
   - Tower shield base item cost changed from 100 to 1000.


I for one think that being able to dual wield whips would be one of the greatest moments in my characters life but not everyone will probably agree with my sentiments so I was just curious if this was going to get implemented into the game or not.


Thanks,
Longevitus

we're looking into the 1.70 unofficial patch. I don't know how much of it will end up being implemented yet, though

I imagine implementing the 1.70 patch is harder than it sounds, because so much of the PoTM hak would override the patch and would have to be changed not to do so. Is that correct or am I mistaken?

That's correct. We've also made our own changes to many of the spells. And the .2da Longevitus is asking about would have to be merged with the CEP's 2das, although in the case of whips it probably won't be a problem.

afik any changes to whips are likely to affect pistols as well.
Meaning dual-wielding pistols.

No, they're completely different parts of the .2da

Well that's either a good thing or bad thing, depending.

it means implementing the change to whips wouldn't change anything in regards to pistols :P

You'd have to dual load them too. Double the trouble.

You can already dual wield whips.  There's an override available on the Escape From Undeath Forums that allows it.  I think its compatible with this server too.  Not sure though cause I dont use whips.

That kind of override won't work here, but it will probably work on servers that use the standard weapon .2da.
