Hak Update 2_25a - Detailed List of Changes
« on: May 07, 2021, 10:02:46 AM »
We've now loaded a new version of the hak on the test server to test several new features and changes.

At this point we'll need your help testing this new content to make sure it works properly and there are no bugs. If you wish to help us test, you'll need to download the following haks:

-CEP 2.65 (if you don't already have it, download and extract to your My Documents\Neverwinter Nights\ folder)
-Ravenloft Hak 2_25a (extract to your My Documents\Neverwinter Nights\ folder)

Once you have extracted both haks into the Neverwinter Nights folder, you will find our test server at IP Address & Port: 46.4.59.55:5124 - use it for "Direct Connect". Once connected, you can either use existing characters or create a new one, using the new class, which can be found at the bottom of the list of classes; all new characters can freely level up to level 20 on the test server for now. You can find more detailed information here.

Try to test as many things as possible, such as spellcasting, feats, unique abilities, leveling, multiclassing, etc. and report anything that feels off, or incorrect here. I've updated the list of changes to include scripting changes that can be tested as well.

Class Changes & Fixes:
-New base class: Warmage
-Overhauled the Shifter class.
-Shifter wyrmling shapes now more faithfully correspond to their PnP appearance (thanks to BahamutZ3RO)
-Gave Hexblades Cat's Grace.
-Cloaks no longer hide wings, and NPCs now react with hostility to characters with wings.

Feat Changes:
-Energy Drain can no longer accidentally target the cleric.

Spell Changes:
-Updated several spells to support the addition of Warmage.

Miscellaneous:
-Updated the appearance of Lawgiver items.
-Fixed errors in the Katar and Musket descriptions.
-Updated the palette categories to better correspond to their current use.
-Added support for the new Beamdog patch.

Area, Item and NPC changes:

- Adjusted the layout of the Lady's Rest basement and unlocked it.
- Renamed the warehouse storage in Dementlieu to prevent confusion.
- Updates to several Dementlieu coastal areas.
- Added blank canvases and books to merchants.
- Rebalanced the cost of helmets sold in Ragdar's Foundry.
- Minor fixes and updates to areas.

Scripting and System changes:
- Fixed an issue with varnishes not working on flintlocks.
- Attempted to fix an issue where random items would sometimes get destroyed.
- Energy Drain can no longer target the cleric.
- Fixed a bug that would let druids equip some metal items.
- Fixed an issue with monks being able to multiclass into some classes.
- Made it impossible to interrupt a NPC while they're doing an action.
- Fixed issues with the flame snakes' poison.
- Made characters' size persist over resets.
- Minor fixes and optimizations.

I've updated the hak to fix the Warmage and Shifter bugs reported so far. You'll need to download it again to see the changes. Thanks for testing!
