SpellForce Revisited - Version 1.30 released!

Post by Shar Dundred »

a SpellForce Platinum Edition mod by Shar Dundred

What is SpellForce Revisited?
SpellForce Revisited is an overhaul of SpellForce: The Order of Dawn and Breath of Winter.The Free Game Mode and Shadow of the Phoenix are affected by the general changes that have been made to the game data itself like adding missing spells to units, but the maps have remained unedited for the time being. SotP is the campaign that I intend to work on next.

Image

What does this overhaul feature?
Generally speaking, SpellForce Revisited is aiming to make the game both more challenging and more rewarding to play while also tweaking some of the mistakes of the vanilla game like units that should have spells not having them or not being able to use them (this is happening in BoW and SotP especially) as well as give more unit models a more unique look.

Spells and unit weapons have also been buffed to be more useful overall.

The enemy AI is deploying larger amounts of units which also tend to be more powerful. More bosses have been added to be slain and existing bosses have been made stronger. Another major change is that I have edited the attacking speed and made it much faster for many races, both enemy and ally alike, to make both more powerful. The AI now also uses the nomadic script more often to patrol on maps more regularly.
In addition, the clan relations have been tweaked to cause more situations that result in your enemies fighting each other &ndash; which also just is more lore friendly. The Demons and Undead should not get along, given the history of their most famous former masters.<br />Aiming to both give the different factions more personality and a higher variety of unit models and types, I have done quite some texture editing in addition to also using skins from the SpellForce Reworked mod (with permission of the author, again thanks for that).

Image

What languages is this mod supporting?
SpellForce Revisited supports the English and German languages.

Image

Is there anything to keep in mind?
Overhaul mods such as SpellForce: Revisited tend to be quite challenging on high difficulty because of the spawns being sped up, resulting in a higher amount of elite units being spawned.

Core features
  • Over 100 new units
  • Over 500 new scripts
  • Allied spawns
  • New factions like the Ironfist, the Golden and Ice Demons
  • More powerful enemy units and bosses
  • Both new &amp; massively edited textures and models
  • Edited campaign maps (currently only TooD &amp; BoW)
  • Many tweaks and fixes
  • Easier multiclass access
An incomplete changelog highlighting some (but by far not all) changes:
==================================================THE ORDER OF DAWN==================================================
GREYFELL
  • The Goblins are using more forces to attack you and the Cave Orcs actually move out

  • And more!
LIANNON
  • The village of Liannon has been remade to use city walls instead of a palisade. Despite being the smallest existing house, it still is the new seat of House Leonidar and therefore deserved a little upgrade, the ruling family has also been added though they are not doing much
  • The Ironfist will spread their influence in the area, especially after the Dawn Knights have left<br />House Leonidar and the Goblins will now openly engage even before the Rune Warrior wants to get to Eloni to give the place the feeling of a place that is actually supposed to be at war

Uploaded a hotfix for my mod, there was an army of Crimson Empire units just chilling in Liannon. They liked the climate. I kicked them back to Shal'dun though.

Thanks to NeoX I have been able to add a mod installer.
I have attached it to the first post.
It includes an exe file both for newer systems as well as one for Windows XP.
You can just pick the version of your game within the exe and either install, repair/upgrade and uninstall with it.
Huge thanks to NeoX and enjoy!
