These small tutorials will show you how to make weapons and some neat stuff you can do with weapons, such as have a morgul blade effect (explained on Page 6).
You will need to know how to make weapons work and how a character uses them.
Some understanding of special powers and OCL's would also be helpfull.

I will be updating this tutorial and adding more different kinds of things about weapons!
So don't forget to check this article every once in a while!

Changes made recently:
-Reorganized Nuggets and added "Numbers" for easy searching.
-Added a couple of Nuggets, which would be all of the ones currently known.

Flank bonus means the bonus for attacking units from behind

Excellent Article!
Thanks, Im using different forms of morgul blades now (that give me different thing)
i was wanting to know how to put poison and flame onto my heros weapons too, thanks!

In weapon.ini....
change this line:
        Damage            = GLORFINDEL_SWORD_DAMAGE
to a different value...
Next time ask this in the forums.

elvenlord95 - Thursday July 2, 2009 - 8:19 can i make a hero's weapon(for example glorfindels) making more damage?
"the sky has fallen"

1. Good idea ;)
2. Reformat, will do that later.
3. I didn't click on it alot. I usually do check the tutorial for replies or comments and such once every day, and i think that maybe because of this tutorials subject some people open the tutorial more than once to check out some things about some nuggets and such. I sometimes even go here to check some of the nuggets ;)

Behavior? do you mean all the things from in the "Engineering" part of the "Unit" or "Structure"? If thats the case then I will consider making that later.

1. How about you list any changes on page 1?
2. Don't you think a reformat would help reading? (like removal of empty space, etc.)
3. How long did it take you to click on the tutorial so it would appear in the top ten popular section? ;-)

Can you answer those questions? I might give it a 4 instead of 3. :)

Otherwise, this is just what is needed, a very thankful job indeed.
Now a comprehensive listing of 'Behavior'-modules with a listing of all toggles would be nice indeed ... in an additional tutorial.

I think Flanking Bonus is this: When the unit flanks (yellow lightning bolt) an another unit then he gets for example +50% extra damage to that other unit.

You are the best of the best. good job!

I have made Aragorn have a Poisonous sword, Gandalf with Flame sword, Legolas with magic bow, Frodo with poisonous dagger and create a heros have flame if they're swordsman or poison if they're archer. ;)

dethwaker3 - Monday October 27, 2008 - 21:36
