  1. Quests aside, there are lots of little caches of materials all around in seemingly obscure places. To get them you can walk around in wider paths when travelling.
  2. In general you can add new weapons and items, give more missions, add text conversations, more rewards and other things depending on the game. This mod does those things. In previous games I could do a lot more than this one but still it is good enough.
  3. This is the Fairy mod, a fan-created mod for Queen’s Wish The Conquerer, a game by Spiderweb Software. Mod created by ZorroDragonslayer. The purpose is for extra entertainment as an add-on for the game. This is a beta test package. Send me a PM through the Spiderweb Software forum for the download link if you want to beta test, and let me also know which platform you are playing on and which game version. Also if you have questions, bug reports or suggestions. These will be adjusted for or used in the final notes and description when completed. Thanks in advance for your input. This has worked in QW1.0 and 1.0.2 versions. Installation notes. This is a zipped file around 590k and needs to be unzipped after you download it. Enclosed will be a Read-Me and nine game files. These files will replace a few (9) of the original files. Keep copies of the original files in case you want to remove the mod files later and put the originals back. You’ve been warned!! Drag the files into the folders mentioned in the instructions detailed in the Read Me file. Thanks to Spiderweb Software for great games. I’ve been playing them all since the mid 1990’s.

  4. You need to talk to Watcher Eibhlin but you have to continue the calamity conversation, including coersion or threats, until the other High Council watchers get nervous and give her dirty looks before she then refers you to Sage Beitris in the basement.
  5. Looking at the changes in v102 files that are frequently used for moddding, I have not seen anything that would require any mod changes from v1. The mod I have been working on will work with the new version without changes. What I have seen is a few stat tweeks to some shields and weapons in the dagger types, and a few typo corrections.
  6. Update on modding for Queen's Wish. After completing the game, and I'm sure I could replay it many more times and not see or do everything, I've been working on a mod. So far not as hugely ambitious as a Bovine mod like in the past, but a reasonable sized one nonetheless. I did some limited modding of the game on my playthrough, too. Now, mind you, I do not do any reverse engineering and have no intention to expose any proprietary information and never have and never will. It is just simple editing, basically, and for fun and to make Queen's Wish more desirable. At this point I have run into one disappointing challenge so far. The engine seems to have a hold over processing or storing variable data of the dialogue pics. It does not work like the previous engines. Why the change was necessary I have no idea. Maybe the solution is something I can't find with the number of hours I have put into it. It could be right under my nose. Maybe the answer is purging a dialogue pic before loading another new one but so far that approach has only loaded an unintended seemingly random pic. This is a big point for me. Maybe someone with knowledge of the change in mechanics that caused the situation could add their two cents. I love the game and everything Spiderweb Software has made. I still commend, and thank, Jeff for leaving much of the game outside the engine which allows for modding.
  7. I agree with the zero being the first number. Also other script alteration warnings, you can also affect other things with changes or additions. For example, the next item after the changed one may inherit the changed stats depending on how it was written. Actually several down the list may get the new stats depending on various factors on how they are written.
  8. Bug or bugaboo? All the conversations about resources coming and going seem to be moot. My resources are capped at 50 and each report near the end of the game showed numbers of income typically 30-40 something which means most are just ignored and wasted. Trying to build and improve with a 50 account limit is frustrating. You buy buildings and have nothing left to place them. If the 50 is an unintended oversight in programming then I might call it a bug. If intended to throw away all the extra earned resources then its a bugaboo to me. Either way I hope it gets fixed soon. I loved the game btw. Very well done.
  9. After I finished the game, my response to this is that there is no need to reproof all the text. It has been well writtem and all mechanics of the English language were perfect based on my experience of the game.
  10. Before someone comes rushing in waiving the danger flag, jumping up and down, you can also break the game with a misplaced or missing comma or other typed keyboard character too. Keeping a backup copy of the files is important in case something goes wrong.
  11. Editing is primarily done with a text editor. Most of the game mechanics and the story itself runs on text that includes fairly simple code instructions and logic forks. Secondarily, you can design new looking items or change colors of existing items with a graphics app, as well as new looking characters for your party, but that takes more time. You can also create new sounds with an audio app. If you've played "Avadon 3 - The Warborn" using the Bovine mod you would see a full example of what could be accomplished.
  12. Yes. I modded after about an hour into the game. Nothing heavy yet but have modded quite a bit. Not making a Bovine Mod per se but have done some things. The methods are similar to previous games. Kudos to Jeff for that capability!! ❤️❤️❤️
  13. Nice game. Well written! I especially like the fact that the petty, petty things have been removed. Grabbing and searching for $1 and $3 items and junk on the floor was a big time waster. Thanks!
