I was thinking about coming back to Elona after a couple months, but I was wondering if I should wait until they drop the 2.0 version. I mostly play Custom anyways but maybe I'll give E+ a shot.
Is thirst still a thing?

Yes, but it's rather inconsequential to deal with. All it does is slow down sp regeneration in the first place, and a magaqua fixes the problem permanently.

Which of the damaging feats is the best in the long run?
>>
>>24566083
You mean the SPACTs?

Dancing Wire has a lot going for it. Poison Nail and Hypnosis are both good. More so if you can build towards Resolution Hand afterward. Magical Plants is meta early on, as it gives a poison based full screen AOE at 30 farming. Really strong. I'd check the wiki for the stats they are based on and what they 'evolve' in to. You get new abilities based on what stats/skills you have. There's also a lot of special actions in general you get just for having the proper stats.

The 'proper' advice is probably Hypnosis to get Touch of Sleep and then build to get resolution hand.
>>
>>24566083
In the long run they don't scale well enough to be viable, or so I've heard. "Shining Wave seems cool, but if you lean on it you'll regret it later" is classic advice.
>>
>>24566083
>>24569364
>>24566344

Maybe golden storm, since it mostly ignores defense/resistance, and can blind blind immune enemies. At cap it hits in the 100-200k range, iirc.

Empathy feats also work, but they are cheating.
>>
>>24566083

Hypnotist backed by Resolution Hand, Poison Nail leading to Hazard Recipe-treated attack food, or Golden Storm if you are willing to invest your plat in Alchemy, Gene Engineer, or Investing respectively. Fortunately all of them are quite easy to train up if you have plenty of gold to spend.

With Touch of Sleep backed by Resolution Hand, you can literally sleeplock enemies to death if they're vulnerable to sleep, and sleep is pretty easy to inflict on anything not a boss relatively speaking. If you can get the Blue Spirit gauntlets (spirit race creatures drop them) then your Gauge Release with Touch of Sleep is going to be even more powerful, particularly if your equipped gear has lots of plusses to their enchantment values.

As a bonus, since you're going to be training up Alchemy anyway you're also able to have high-level undeads from Coffins of Necromancy and lots of damage from throwing high-level Trismagistuses and Violent Skull Swords, so I'd say if you could only pick one skill, pick Alchemy.

Hazard Recipe involves poisoning food with said feat and then throwing them at enemies. They do a good job fucking them up on their own, not to mention that more Gene Engineer means more damage. If a boss ends up getting anorexia from vomiting too much, then they're pretty much screwed. However, the poisoned food is only effective if the target isn't too full to eat, so make sure to bring some cursed milk or alcohol with you to force their stomachs open.

And then there's Golden Storm. Investing is stupidly easy to train up if you have money and plat. Its advantage over the other feats is that it's simple and spammable; once you've trained your Investing up all you need is money and the stamina to throw it with. Obviously, make sure you carry plenty of money with you and wear something that protects against thieves so they don't steal your ammo.
>>
>>24569804
How is emphaty cheating? also isn't continuous attacks the bread and butter of melee characters?
>>
Where do I put the moongate rooms and NPCs files to?
>>
>>24577929
Continuous Attacks scales off of normal attack damage (sans elemental damage weapon enchantments), so it's better than most spacts. I dunno how well it compares, though; elemental damage is pretty big.
>>
>>24577929

Empathy feats are screen wide, cause enemies to freeze after they proc (1-2 turns), can cause status effects, and attack sp which doesn't go much past 2k even at endgame. You can clear the whole game with empathy feats, even capped boss monsters, and only learn 1 attack skill, plus your attributes.

Add some pets in talk mode and you will eventually get to a point were enemies just disappear as you walk around, banished from existence.

Does Eye of Mind work with magic, or can magic not crit?
>>
>>24580237
i assumed the skill was neat at best because it takes several turns to use it while the enemy pummels your pet or you
>>
>>24581452
What do you mean work with magic?

Eye of Mind puts things in a state of losing mana. And no magic can't crit.
>>
>>24583436
>Eye of Mind puts things in a state of losing mana.

You're thinking of Eye of Mana. Eye of Mind is the skill that governs how often you crit with physical attacks.
>>
>>24583508
Ah, you're right. Then the answer is no. Magic can't crit.
>>
>>24583068

That can happen, especially early on. However, once the skill procs on enemies they just stand there doing nothing until you finish. As your stats grow enemies generally don't get a chance to attack.

You can also hide in a smoke cloud once you get that skill, if they keep sniping you for some reason. AOE attacks still work in the cloud.

Which race is everyone playing as? Eulderna here, aiming to be a necromancer.

Current character is Mutant/farmer, I started as a thief to crit all the things.

>>24637651
What would be good to punch everything to death with?
>>
>>24637651

Eulderna Thief. Superb+ Magic Resistance when you also have more Magic Resistance from corpses and mutations, no equipment needed, and there is no real drawback. Meanwhile, Thief's autocrit as an opener means you outright slaughter weak enemies with one attack and apply whatever status effects your weapon does to stronger ones (get a living weapon and tack on lots of Chaos damage for best results).

You can do entire Hunting quests killing all the enemies with one attack from a powerful ranged weapon, and Panic quests are only slightly more difficult. Dungeons? If you get the drop on your enemies (and you're not hilariously underpowered) they're pretty much fucked.

Bosses are the only real snag here, but you need other tactics to handle those anyway regardless of build, so.

>>24640867

Martial Arts and Tactics. Use your Attribute and Clear Mind buffs for more punching power. Use the Element Eyes to set your element to either Chaos if you want to shut down enemies with paralysis/blind/confusion or Cold if you want damage and have some cursed beer or something to Wet the boss with.

The previous version is taken down once a new one goes up. The game is on 1.995R now. Go look on the wiki for that.

https://elona.fandom.com/wiki/Thread:32211

If I could update the OP I would.

So when are they gonna release version 2.0?
>>
>>24652323

Have some advice from the discord.

>in oomsest you can up your speed though eating food blessed by lulwys and drinking Hermes blood. So if you really want to get it high your gone be getting a lot of medals and praying/cooking
>you can also eat glass for speed exp(if you got eat anything feat), and bless special meat buns(which you can make with the pot for testing) with lulwy to have them give speed exp
>>
>>24654678
God knows when Ano is actually going to release 2.0. He released 1.995 then 1.995R as 'versions' just to avoid having to label a release 2.0. I have no clue what kind of major update he considers marking the game 2.0 for. That said, just go ahead and start. You'll probably cycle through a few characters figuring things out anyway. Get the basics of the game down before you try a legit do everything play through.

Start experimenting now. The game is mostly translated.
>>
>>24654678
Plus is 75% Engrish, 25% "Sorry, this is untranslated dialogue". Custom is 75% English, 25% "Sorry, this is untranslated dialogue". Custom-G is 75% English, 25% Engrish.

I'd say "old save files can always be safely moved forward to newer versions", but I heard there was some kind of save incompatibility debacle with a recent release of Plus? Anyway, don't bother waiting for a particular version.

Also, expect to die a lot while you figure out how to play. It's normal.
>>
>>24655230
Ano fucked up. Any save in 1.995 is forever locked in 1.995. 1.995R is fine, though.
>>
>>24649140


Early on you're best source of speed will be riding, lulwy, and wearing glass/spirit cloth/ether. Plus speed rings.

Mide game eating that gear + lulwy steamed buns can give speed xp.

Late game however, you'll be using custom speed spells and buying thousands of hermes blood at a shot.



An alternate progression path does exist:

For early game you can combine speed pots in a testing pan/pot/etc to get sped pots +1, +2, etc. This is only limited by your alchemy skill and potion stock, so you can get +100 speed pots and zip around super speed for a thousands turns if you want.

Later, once you have ways to level, or just start crafting descent pots with alchemy, the speed ether diseases scale forever in oomsest.

Lich wizzy all day baby. Sometimes I do necromancer or farmer subspecialization for fun. Also I love having tons of pets and micromanaging them. I don't care about cheesing the game with bells and shit. I like raising imoutos and little girls to be killing machines. Lich wizard is awesome for pet management once you get Healing Rain (which also heals necro pets). I also like obtaining and raising unique allies and passing them over to my next character using Soul Spindle. Did this with Frisia and Renai already, I wanna try copying a god sometime but I can't be assed to reach lvl 185 or so lol (lvl/2 is needed to copy an npc or enemy).
I've also played fairy pianist before but it got so boring and slow I spec'd into farming which actually makes sense since pianists have really high starting Weight Lifting. By lvl 50 my STR and CON were about as high as my MAG and twice as high as all other stats lol.

>>
>>24662312
>>Magical plants poison AOE OP, until lvl 35 when they cant onehit chaos seeds, chaos seeds OP

Unless your Gardening sucks, Violent Garden indeed wrecks Act 1, but tapers off in damage as things start getting more poison resistance. That doesn't make it useless, however, if you also have access to the Anaphylaxis special action that inflicts Dim + Dysphea + vomiting on anything that is poisoned. A Violent Garden followed by a few uses of Anaphylaxis will make enemies on screen puke their guts out (which can make them starve to death) while not being able to physically attack worth a damn.

>>thirst system is bad until you get juicer, then it is amazing

Or you get a Magaqua and carry it with you. But juice is good for training up your Alchemy and Magic Device without having to spend time gathering materials and making stuff or burning a lot of rod charges/stamina.

>Not enough dungeons, Are dungeons rarer?

You can get rid of old dungeons and make new ones appear whenever you want by going to and from South Tyris.

Haven't made a character in a year or so, is this asking me on what skill i want an exp multiplier?
>>
>>24669205
It's a freebie skill. Like if you want Pickpocket or Greater Evasion without having to get it from the guild trainer.
>>
I remember playing this many years ago with the sketchy translation that somehow made it hilarious. Is this game as funny in Japanese as it is in English? Now that I can read nip, I'm wondering what language to choose.
>>
>>24669205
What it does is increase the growth speed of that skill as well as unlocking it. Just like having equipment that improves a skill, will suddenly "upgrade" it from [] to [#] to [##]... etc., that means you'll get additional potential% upon skill level-up, thus potential decreases more slowly and the skill grows faster. The gain isn't that obvious unless if you hack to get #####, then your potential never goes under 100% or so
>>
>>24675109
The ### hashes just mean the skill is being increased, say +4 or something. It has nothing to do with potential.
>>
>>24569364
Depends on which games you're running. In permadeath where early game is absurdly lethal, all those high-damage, bad scale abilities are a godsend.
>>
>>24677775
I've tried raising a skill to absurd levels (Equipment modification via Elosnack) and then adding points to it, and I swear potential increases a lot more the higher the added skill level is. Not sure if the version I did that in has something to do with it. I recall potential wouldn't go below 100%, even though usually it stabilizes at 50% or so when you don't have any increases.
>>
>>24677775
>>24681333
Also, it takes like +50 in a skill to merely get to ##, so it wouldn't really make sense for it to be an indicator of increases. (I remember needing like +1000 or +2000 to get to #####, which is pretty much impossible to get without save editing)
>>
>>24681396
>>24681333
You can see your skills actuall levels using crafting recipies (or by looking at how derived stats such as damage/defense/spells change), they'll show the modified skill level and it's effects.

It's possible you broke something by raising the number too high, you might have also been on purge mode which has settings to prevent potential from going down.

Either way, I've capped base stats and used god weapons like frisia's tail, and they've never increased potential rates for me. (plus frisia's tale would be useless if it didn't boost your stats)

Prostitute's guild.

Never got a living weapon in 200+ played hours across a bunch of characters, i feel memed.

>>24701568
Usually i go with warrior's first and switch to mages' once i've got enough income to upgrade to +10 without much trouble. You can also accept both quests and join whichever guild's initiation you complete first, sometimes they can take a long time

Either Fighter's or Mage's. Fighter's can be good if you know where to find all the critters you're asked to bag and the Flame Edge you get for doing the Guild Quest is a decent weapon for a pet of yours if you don't want to use it yourself.

For even midgame characters though it's Mage's all the way. It's pretty much the only way to cash in on all those Ancient Books you keep finding (as of the current version, abyss power does nothing) and the spellbook reservation service is a nice backup for getting more of a certain spell stock if shops and Scrolls of Wonder fail you.

Fuck the Thieves' Guild, however. The Wooden Horse is useless and their initiation quest is the polar opposite of being a competent thief. No dumbasses, not paying your taxes for months on end is a sign of being a pathetic deadbeat not proving how EVIL you are. On the bright side, Sin is the easiest guild boss to kill for the other two.

>>24708397
>how do I go about making a pure caster slut?

High Casting (obviously), high Alchemy for making potions and alcohol and high-level Trismegistuses, high Magic Device so your rods and scrolls and potions aren't shit, high Performer so you can shake your booty for dosh and grind your Charisma so you can make dosh whoring yourself out. Also some means of recovering Sanity; the meat of hermit crabs and giant squirrels can do this so you may want Cooking too.

Does anyone here know more about Elin's Inn (game by Elona's ORIGINAL dev) iirc the lasted known version to me is 0.49 and he posts about it daily with the lasted comment being a day ago on the dedicated r/ElinsInn, next public alpha will be once the UI is redone.

>>24727786
>I never knew about these gifts tho, what are those usually?

The only present I know of are literal Presents that you can throw at pets to heal some of their HP and at enemies to inflict chaos damage and ergo paralysis/blind/confuse/poison/sleep. It's reusable, so you can save on potions, rod charges, and spell stock healing your pets. No, it doesn't heal yourself.
>>
>>24728031
>is there any downside to play in overdose?
Not really, no. You're losing out on the grind and all the challenge it brings with it. If you're just playing it for the story, go for it. Elona is all about the infinite grind, but you do you.
>what exactly is gene?
When an adventurer and his/her/its pet love each other very much, they form a babby. Said babby starts the adventure from scratch, but can inherit their parent's items and pets, if certain conditions are met. The wiki is fairly exhaustive on the matter.
>>
what's the deal with the werewolf in town event?
>>
>>24730764
You used to be able to vote on names/suggestions/etc back in vanilla. This gave rank and salary, so ano replaced it with a werewolf event where you can vote on who's guilty.

Vote for whomever you want, but you can only cast a new vote after seeing a werewolf murder at midnight.
>>
Where can I get disguise kits/incognito stuff?
>>
>>24730764
You can game it to kill some named NPCs for good starting gear early on too, but as a downside it has a chance of just killing shops you've invested in.
>>
>>24730789
>a werewolf event where you can vote on who's guilty.

It's amusing when it happens in Vernis and you're able to vote for Loyter. Serves that douchebag right.

Because if the mother of your children have big breasts before being pregnant, it means she will be able to produce a lot of milk, enough for your children, even if she birth twins or more.

This is why humans like big breasts so much, since they are a sign of life and prosperity.
As opposed to subhumans who like big butts, who are a symbol of shit, diseases and sloth.
>>
>>24757095
Ackshully. Women with small breasts produce just as much milk as women with larger ones. The amount of fatty tissue doesn't equal more milk production (the amount of glandular tissue does, and that has no relation to breast size), in fact obese women actually produce less milk despite having larger breasts (ie. more fatty breast tissue).

In fact how much milk is produced has to do with how often the child is breast-fed. So if a women has twins she will produce more milk to compensate for how often she has to breastfeed. Larger breasts are attractive to some because of aesthetics, not function. The more you know.

Buffs like hero/holy shield/ holy veil/ etc, or rare spells like meteor/wish/harvest.

The last 2 just need a high enough casting chance and they won't get harder to use. Harvest is low-ish, can't remember the exact amount, but wish needs 1300+ or so to break even.

>Don't spooks scale entirely off your own skills?

You can make gear with +Alchemy/Anatomy to give the spooks levels to start with, the whole start with big stacks of Coffins thing is so you don't have to get the high-value body parts needed to make them as a fresh noob. Plus it's an option for those who don't want pets or who want to use spooks and pets.
>>
>>24810856
The level does, but the type and level cap depends on what you crafted the coffin with. You also get +5 from a coffin upgrade you can make.

A level 7 dead eyes is much better for a starter than a level 1 cat.

A bit of a shot in the dark here but does anyone know how to edit skill potential using Cheat Engine? I fucking hate the potential mechanic and just want to disable it. I've been able to find the address of a skill's potential but modifying the value doesn't seem to do anything.

>>24812435
skill level and potential are one value, ssssppp where s is skill level and p is its potential.

Shield skill is 4.125, potential is 69%.

OOMsest can use the translated custom files from ooenhack, though its recommended to use ooen instead for compatibility reasons.

Beyond those, oomsest has more hard-coded translations than even ooen had. IIRC only the two gods, danilan and seria are untranslated, and you can use ooen's translated version if you don't mind not being able to summon her.

enhack is just OOen with boosted xp rate selectors, a few renamed files, and a couple of oomsest features back-ported.

OOen is just OO with the custom files and a few hardcoded files translated.

OOMset has all of OOs features, is compatible with the translated custom files, and even has the hard-coded translations too. It also has it's own files.

There are 2 things oo and enhack have that oomsest doesn't: a port of custom in OOEN (not hack), and xp sliders in enhack.

You'll get the same translations with all 3 if you follow the install instructions, oomsest even has a few more that weren't added to ooen in time.

>I'm not dead, I just haven't had a ton of time to do modding since March due to other personal commitments. I'm going to see if I can't shuffle my schedule around a bit and make time to get back to things. OOEN Custom is *theoretically* done, in reality there's a Windows Compatibility Mode-triggered bug that I've had zero luck chasing down the cause of - so far the code is practically identical to the last build I uploaded (besides two minor bugfixes) from adding and removing bits to unsuccessfully narrow down the cause and at this point I'm tempted to ask someone else to try building the code and see if their build has the issue.

Be aware that crit damage taken and received is tied to equipment weight. So fairies will take heavy crit damage, and not do much crit damage in turn. You also won't be able to use the magic equip skill that does +20% magic strength (stacking multiplicatively with spell enhance).

Yeah. I've been working on it since May of last year. I must say it's damn lonely just porting all this in the hopes it will take off at some vague future date. But at least I find it amusing having a sort-of modifiable copy of Elona to mess around with in the end.

My hope is that this will end the thing with Elona where people decompile the source over multiple generations and maintain their close-sourced patches for years and years.

Of course it has to be playable first, and relatively bug-free, but I'm trying to put in a lot of effort towards that.

>>
>>24889956

Yes, and I made sure that there are almost no "true" globals, thanks to the fact that you can set up Lua's global environment to throw an error if you attempt to access an undefined global. Literally everything in the engine is designed around this fact. So not only are there almost no globals, but this allowed for redesigning things like the entire UI system to have almost no dependencies on global state, making them more user-friendly in the process. Trying to refactor the original source to accomplish this is arduous and bug-prone (I would know, I spent an entire year trying). As it turns out, rewriting from scratch was a better use of time in this case, given that the primary goal was to allow modding.

>>
>>24893527
I think 2h sword is still the easiest in oomsest for beginners. Lich has some strong innate pv/dv when not wearing armor/shields as well.

IIRC samurai class is popular since you can wish for a feat reset early on and get a bunch of free feats. Ninjas get +10 starting speed, claymores get boost (but you can switch to them at the warrior guild), and idols are popular for cash money and minions.

Most of the things oomsest adds to speed things up are in the form of feats, or uncapped exploits later on.

Evasion is a dead end route in elona. Abandon it now while you aren't getting splattered for it. Also, start investing up to 60-70 rank in magic shops. You need potions of potential, boi.

Haven't played ranged character myself. Mage can do more ranged damage while also having better buffs.
If you want to go ranged anyway, remember to check optimal range for your current weapon. Special ammunition and ammo boxes should help with harder fights. Having a couple of melee pets or zombies serving as living wall should also help.
And even as ranged character, don't skip on magic, train your buff and utility spells every time their potential is close to maxed.

>>24935075

Heavy is more tanky, but despite what other people say you can get away with light if you keep your PV up and invest in buff and heal spells. Also consider using the Element Eyes (bought from Garokk and Miral) to set your element to Cold or Chaos so that you inflict it when your Attribute buff is up. Cold will do more damage since Wetting enemies is easy to do and the Chill it does makes them do less damage, but Chaos can inflict paralysis, blindness, and confusion which just screws over non-bosses.

Also, consider putting the Shield Tonfa (Garokk again) in your Shoot slot so you benefit from the extra defense.

>>24938386

Get a living Ballista, use an adamantium material kit to crank up its damage, use Flying scrolls and blacksmiths so that you can actually drag the thing along with you, and then get a Bolt that has special ammo you can use with it (you want Time stop and preferably Burst though Rapid can do) so that you can unload huge DPS on boss damage sponges when you need it.

Keep a look out for anything that increases your chance of extra ranged attacks. Precious artifacts that do so include the Gemini, Fried Prawn, and Arbalest. Since you're only using your huge fuckoff crossbow, you can afford to put extra ranged attack gear in your hand slots. Interlocking shooting mechanisms can also help with damage output; some gear has them.

Make your class a Thief. The guaranteed critical hit on enemies that haven't detected you yet will ensure you don't miss too often and lets you chew up groups of trash mobs since you are using a ranged attack. Bosses are a different story, but again you save your special ammo for those.

The Fury status ailment and the Shooting Mode hex provided by the Fixity Anchor (Stoke in Arcbelc sells it for music tickets) can increase your DPS but they have their own drawbacks so be very careful with them. If you want to use them against a boss, well, Time Stop forgives a multitude of sins.

The both of you also get the full effect of whatever special thing the corpse does when eaten; if it gives a resistance it goes to both of you, if it inflicts a status ailment both of you get slapped with it, if it heals insanity then both of you become more sane (so make sure you stockpile those crab and squirrel corpses!), and so on.

I think this already exists.

It's based on vanilla, but runs in native code (C++). There is some amount of modding support in Lua, also.
>>
As someone returning to Elona after a few years, I have to ask: What does the English community mostly play nowadays? The way the different game variants are listed in the wiki and the pastebin, it's really hard to tell which versions are niche/abandoned/dead and which tend to be the crowd favorite.

And as a follow up question, are there any particular branches of Elona that one should keep an eye on that are still being actively developed still? Or are they all largely abandoned (or near it, with updates being released as a tiny trickle with large delays between)?
>>
>>24964803
Elona+ is what most english players use. Custom+ might make a comeback, but don't hold your breath. It's Elona+ with some more translation and QOL improvements.

The only viable alternative to elona+ right now is Omake.

As another returning player, I jumped to plus custom G .90. It may be almost 10 versions outdated, but it's too good to pass on. Tried Omake when it was translated first, not my cup of tea.
Out of translated variants, plus is nearing(?) a large release, there was custom ported to vanilla, custom for omake english will come out some time in the near future, and there's mostly translated OOMSEST in active development.

Thanks for the answers, anons. By the way, I see Elona+ Custom has a "adult only" disclaimer on its main menu. Is Elona's sexual content still just milking pets, getting a little tail, and the pee/thirst system? I was going to try and get a friend into Elona too, but I'm worried that in the years I've been gone they may have added something even more outlandish that might make me look like I have a weird fetish.

The only difference compared to earlier plus versions so far is that the early game platinum grind got ridiculously easy. 2 pp will get you 100% skill potential until you level your skills a bit.
There were nerfs to melee multiattack, but no nerfs to magic, and ranged is still mediocre.

In plus/vanilla it means nothing, remanent of an old fusion system.

In omake/etc, it means those traits will try to carry over if you use fusion with your smithing hammer.

Can any modders clarify something for me? I noticed the face1.bmp (the NPC portrait spritesheet) uses individual portraits that are 48x72 pixels. However, in-game the display stretches them out to 80x112 pixels, causing them to look all distorted from upscaling. Custom player portraits don't have this issue; they are all 80x112 files that display at 80x112, so look pristine.

Is there some way to make the NPC portrait system use a portrait sheet that's 1:1 in size, instead of the default behavior of taking overly small pictures and stretching them out? (I know Omake did this, but can it also be done to other elona versions without major hacking of the game files?)
>>
Speaking of upscaling, anyone know a good program for upscaling Elona? Not just making the window bigger, like you can using config settings, but making everything inside it larger as well. My usual window resizing tool doesn't seem to work with Elona, so I wonder if anyone knows any that do work.

>>
>>24996132
E+ is basically what the name suggests. Elona+. Improved Elona.

Oomsest is basically an entirely different fork. It has a lot more new mechanics and systems than E+ lacks, but a lack of translation (or at least, non-machine translation) seems to hurt its adoption among the English community.
>>
>>24996877
Why do people keep saying oomsest is untranslated, while plus is?

Plus' translation was broken even in custom, and g only added some machine translation to make up for it.

OOMSest is only missing translations danalin, and seria's religion description. Everything else is 100%

There are plenty of other things to criticize oomsest for, such as the fact it's a pain in the ass to install properly, with 4 different downloads.
>>
>>24996132
>plus
adds 3 more acts, but they feel a bit soulless compared to North Tyris
adds a lot of new enemies all the way up to level 200, at least doubling on vanilla bestiary
grinding is immensely reduced, at least until you hit post-game
pets got significantly buffed, it's easy to keep their potentials high and every skill you teach them has use
a bunch of new spells and shitton new active skills
has Custom sub-mod that adds half-decent translation in later acts and adds FF12 or Dragons age-like gambit system for pet's AI.
had some questionable changes in resent years, like water sports and anti-savescum mechanics. Have custom-G subvariant cutting out all of it, but it's outdated.
>omake
Closer to vanilla, both in terms of content and grindiness
new feats including negative ones for extra challenge
a lot of custom npcs and gods, all untranslated and hidden on web 1.0 age nip sites
npc talk system is expanded, in case you like to write and have your log constantly spammed, or, once again, can read japanese and download premade talk file

And there's too much small differences to list, so short answer is, they are just different. Oh, and nips are usually butthurt about elona plus.
>>
>>24997394
Why would they be butthurt about it?
>>
The short answer is:
>E+ has more breadth; more new areas, more new mobs, more new quests, etc.
>oosmest has more depth: fewer new areas and mobs, but more in-depth mechanics for what there is. Such as city-building, more complex performance mechanics, rival adventurers, NPCs fighting each other, etc.

So basically oomsest has less content to go through, but the content there is lasts longer because it has more depth and interactivity.

Actually, Custom-G rewrote some Engrish as English. Some of it was even backported to Custom by BloodyShade. The Act 1 ending is the first thing that comes to mind, since it used to be incomprehensible. I think that border guy and the card-collector witch got proper dialogue too.
>>
>>24997682
I vaguely remember that. I think a lot of it was that he doesn't have that weird thing Omake has where you have to install it on top of vanilla for it to work, and just weird nipponese copyright obsession in general (since Japan apparently doesn't use GPL or CC-BY-SA or whatever).
>>
>>25001209
That was the machine translated stuff. I said some because there are still things that got missed, like most of the card text, things that had copy paste ano translations, that were hard to find, half translated bits that seemed fully translated, etc.

But, fair enough, it still added a large amount of machine translations, with some editing.

>>25002806
To your question about that's the difference between the omake mods: There's really is no simple answer. Because it's a mod of a mod of a mod etc, there's no unified changelog unlike E+. So you'll have to manually trudge through all the changelogs of each mod's predecessor and put it together yourself -- or just do what most people do and go in mostly blind.

OOMSest is recommended since it's the latest iteration, so presumably has the most content of all the Omake submods. That's really the only reason it's recommended. Major changes I can think off the top of my head compared to vanilla:

>New guilds (prostitude, blacksmith)
>New gods (kitsune and ocean)
>Negative feats (have a permanent handicap in exchange for getting more regular feats)
>Some sort of smithy system (content is untranslated, so most people haven't touched it)
>NPC adventurers significantly more advanced (they form their own parties, can declare you rival)
>City building I think? Unless I'm thinking of the wrong mod.
>Various new holidays (sister day, baby day, etc)
>>
>>25002419
>hey are food shops still worthwhile?

Very much so. Once your shopkeeper has gained enough experience not to suck at selling, the only real hurdle is keeping your shop stocked with enough food. Fishing is usually the answer to that problem, but only if you have a lot of bait and the Super Lure.

You can also cook and/or jerk the corpses of slain enemies and sell them too; the higher their level the more money their meat sells for. However, nothing is wrong with going to the Puppy Cave and murdering lots of popcorn mobs for sheer volume of meat to sell.

Lastly, you can steal yourself tons of Fruit Trees from wilderness, farms, and Hunting missions, plop them down in a building you own, and then harvest, cook, and sell the fruit they produce. They won't have any enhance value so they're not worth much but it's better than nothing.

>if not, what's a good alternative?

Blacksmiths. If you plunder dungeons often you'll come across lots and lots of weapons, armour, and jewelry. Now, you may personally have no use for them but they're still worth money when picked up and then sold in your shop, so you may as well take advantage of that. Note that they only sell for full price when it's your shop doing the selling - you get slapped with a huge massive markdown when selling equipment to vendors and it's so huge that it's not worth it.

I've got a +1 hammer myself. Most people avoid it just because it's grindy. It's better now with the new blacksmith guild, which has a bunch of stuff to help starting blacksmiths. Additionally, smithing furniture with bones/meat/etc never fails, for easy xp when starting.

Only starting ones, they are the sum of your class and racials. The only permanent thing is your racial feat, if any. You can change your class later with business card and get its class feat, at least in plus.

Whic collects skin, bone, corpses, figurines, and cards. It destroys hearts and blood.

I assume seeds would be similar.

However, one thing to note, autopick doesn't work in player owned properties. This is presumably to prevent you from picking up your stored items all the time on accident. So, do your testing in town or a dungeon.

With cold you'll be always at risk of destroying something useful, and there's no magaice in last custom version to stop it.
And don't weapon procs do the same amount of damage, unlike spells, which have different hit dices?

Lighting element gets a 50% boost and cold gets a 75% boost. https://pastebin.com/U0MZ9VFA

Most late game enemies have superb cold resistance, so they don't have their items destroyed same as the player. However, it can happen early on. It's not all that common though, and you probably won't notice much difference in loot.

Elemental damage does do a % of base damage as elemental yes, with 1000 enchant being 100% bonus.

Invokes do have weapon dice though, and are basically just the same as casting the spell except using weapon skill + enchant amount as the spell level. Weapon skill rapidly dominates the power of the invoke, so enchant strength tends to not matter much. They are unaffected by spell enhancement/combine effects, however.

That's nice to know, wiki is outdated as always.
For invokes, are you saying that they are one point wonders? How's the scaling? From what I remember, the damage they do is barely noticeable by act 3.

Oh wait, you no longer can use living weapons in artifact fusion? Balls.

Yeah, invokes you can get by with just 1 enchant and not notice a difference. It'd take a huge amount of enchant to matter by act 2, and by act 3 it's a lost cause. In fact, low enchant invokes are usually much better, as effect/space can be very efficient.

Scaling is pretty much the same as spells, however you can probably level spells + magic faster than you can level weapon skills + magic. Not to mention the lack of high powered spells as invokes and no spell enhance, magic equip, or combines enchants, and invokes fall way behind spells.

They could still be salvaged even then, since you cast them for free per hit. But the rate at which they invoke is really low, sometimes as low as 4% or 1%. Breath invokes and buffs (they last long enough to re-cast) tend to be the best invokes if you do go after some. The Gravity and grenade fusions in act 3 are cheap enough to be worth it even if they aren't all that amazing.

So in Oomsest, I've noticed that enemy mobs are far less aggressive; unless attacked, they often ignore me unless me if I get within 2-3 tiles. However, I'm also playing a Sister character whose racial feat ("You are cute") is unclear about what it actually effects.

Is this greatly decreased level of mob aggression normal for all oomsest games, or is this actually the effect of the Sister racial feat?

In oomsest, they buffed the stealth skill by a lot, including reducing noise, detection chances, radius, etc. It also makes stealing much easier.

However, the invoke can proc for each hit that weapon lands, and let's be honest if you're building for physical damage you're going for plenty of +chance of attacks and/or the use of Dual Wielding or Rapid/Burst ammo anyway.

Also, every invoke can proc on a hit, so if your weapon has two Bolt spells then each hit can give one or rarely both. Bolt invokes in particular have a 15% chance of proccing, so while it's no Gravity Sphere or Grenade it's not so bad that it's wasted space.

>They could still be salvaged even then, since you cast them for free per hit

Not to mention that invokes cost no spell stock (or even knowing the spell, for that matter) and don't care about spell casting failure or Mist of Silence.

Oh, I didn't say it was a waste of space. Only that it didn't compete with spells directly. If the enchant space used by invokes per damage yield on avg is more efficient that elemental damage enchants, then it's better to use them.

They can also provide nice AOE effects that melee and to a lesser extent ranged, tends to lack. Lightning/chaos/nerve breath attacks are especially good for that.

Er, nether rather than nerve, for the healing.

Eh, if I wanted to use Chaos Breath I'd just use the Element Eyes to set the element to chaos and use that directly, or use Liquid Manipulation with cursed beer for screenwide Dimming + vomiting that won't hit friendlies. Or pop out some spooks and have them blow up.

Shutting down hordes of normal enemies isn't that hard with the right spells or special actions, it's the bosses you need to worry about.
