last weekend i have tried the modding tool of grim dawn. I just want to add my own mastery.
I spend about 10 hours to get a database, but then there are millions of tables and so on, i have no idea how to add a mastery.
I have downloaded the Tutorial to add a mastery, but i have no clue how i can start this tutorial, cause its just a database and a resource folder.
Now i´m looking for a step by step tutorial how to add a mastery, change/add a skill and its levels and how i can start the game with this.
I read the tutorial in the forum, but i cant get any infomation from this.
My english is not so well. :undecided:
The “Modding Tutorial” is indeed just a project covering several topics from the Modding Guide (and a new Mastery). It’s fairly straightforward once you get a hang of how the game is built up, really. But you’ll need to be creative.
The steps to creating a mastery are simple:
Create a skill from skill*-templates
Create a training progression skill_mastery template
Associate both in a skilltree template
Create UI buttons from the skillbutton templates
Associate these with your skill and training database files, respectively
Create a training bar from the bargraph template
Create a UI skill table from skillpanectrl template and associate your buttons in it
Associate the skill table in the class UI mastertable
Associate the skilltree in both malepc01 and femalepc01
You can find all these files in the modding tutorial under records/skills/playerclass07 and records/ui/skills/class07 (also records/ui/skills for the mastertable and records/creatures/pc/* for the malepc01 and femalepc01). Examine these files closely. Try to understand how they work together, and why they are needed.
