Possible to replace innate abilities?
« on: August 17, 2012, 07:12:22 PM »
I'm trying to write code for a shape shifter. I have innate abilities that allow the character to shift into a wolf (level 1), then a dire wolf (level 5), and then a dread wolf (level 9). Each one representing an upgrade in melee abilities. However, I would prefer to have the older versions disappear at the level the newer ones are available. Is this possible? I still haven't figured out a way to make innate abilities only limited to certain character levels. Thanks.

Use the Remove Spell opcode (172). An example from the vanilla game is SPIN838, which removes the player's Bhaalspawn powers after the dream in Spellhold.

If you're doing a kit (which is what it sounds like) then you should also be able to code all that into the clab*.2da files for the kit.

The other possibility is just to have one spell, but level-based. In fact that sounds like the easier and better option. You just have separate ability headers in the .spl file based on the caster's level, which determines which form the spellshifter mutates into. Dunno if that works for innates though.
