V1 to 10
« on: January 12, 2013, 07:13:01 AM »

Synergies Pre-Guts V10 Released October 27th
[spoiler]-Changed the 4 enchanters into the 6 enchanters in the enclave city. All enchanters in the city (the 6 added ones) are VERY expensive. 14k ish for first enchant, this is for balance purposes.  you can find the enchanters in the world for cheap, or have them at your finger tips for a lot of money.  We are finding that we make a LOT more money in this mod now, and a good gold sink is needed.  so here we go!  (
 -adding Miles the undead fishmonger as a synergies staple (
 -All znojmo maps will be included in synergies v10,  maps: 48,55,65,76,85,95 and will create a new 105 (not yet) map as well.
- Znojmo champions just got harder, min spawn per champion still 1, max now 3 instead of 2.  Added in a few missing champions (crab, lots of sturms, rock troll, gargoyle)
-Lowered the time till refresh for all zones and floors of dungeons, 2.5 minutes of not being in the zone SHOULD have a dungeon respawn on you, and 10 mins or so on a level (hopefully that means outside zone), also made it so the game should only "remember" 3 levels of a dungeon, going out and starting over from the top in a 6floor dungeon, means starting from the top...
-Changed the color of  Magical   Rare    Unique    Legendary    Setpieces    Quests     (Socketables, Scrolls, Maps, Spells)  So that they are more distinquishable in the game, I was having a hard time noticing the difference between legendaries/rares and set pieces in most instances.
-Boon will have a full inventory, where previous he had skimpy pickings!
-Changed Identify and Townportal scrolls to be able to stack, back to normal scorlls, with different colored names :) (sell your old scrolls if you need to)
-slightly raised socketable drop chance in a few base files, value 5 to value 15 compared to the 300 to 2000 of other things in the list, it shouldn't be completely noticable, will trim if needed
-Working my repulsion hex rework into Synergies: (
-Starting spawn has a vendor that sells starting gear, from this mod here ([/spoiler]

Synergies Pre-Guts V09 Released October 23rd
[spoiler]-Added 1 range to 2handed range weapons. (for some reason wasn't able to find the arcs for these when looking)
-altering the SKILL progression rate, to make it take longer to get the final tiers, and or finalize them.
Tier 1: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19

-changed the on-ground color of Spell scrolls, Potions, Scrolls and Socketables to differentiate from normal white loot. as per this technique:
-Altering the UI to add GOLD TOTAL, HP TOTAL, MP TOTAL in easy to read numbers on the screen as per this thread:, inlcudes current fame bar!
-Fixed the View range increase, for some reason, I had it way back in a early release, but its not there, or wasn't noticable.  Figured it out from others posts and fixed it up some.
-added/ edited more Dual wielding bonuses from different sources:  Gems/enchants/items.
-added in the 5 enchanters to the first town, from thread here:
-adding all my custom maps into the actual synergies mod pak, 66-75 / 76-85 / 86-95  all found on general vendor
-Condensed Synergies back into ONE pak file for this release
