1. ## The Modification Repository

The Modifications forum has undergone an overhaul

-----------------------------

I as well have others have made modifications for the game and I'm sure there are plenty more to come. Now, probably the easiest way for users to use these modifications was just made aware to me by EvilRebel.

Basically, you only have to download one file and place it in the proper directory, no extracting, no replacing vital files.

How the method works is simply the modifier creates a resourcesX.s2z file with the proper file structure. The X can be any number that isn't being used already (So for starters, 0). This is where this thread comes in.

What this thread is for is for creators of modifications to 'claim a number'. That way, users can use multiple modifications from multiple users without having a number overlap.

Note: The mods have a 'Files Edited' field below their descriptions in this teal color. This is important to pay attention as two mods can not edit the same file. If you use two mods that edit the same file, one or the other will not work.

You can not mix any mods that have the same file listed under their description.

How to create your own mods
A guide by picklefish

Combinations
Since you can't use two mods that edit the same file. MaxGhost has been working to circumvent the problem by merging the mods into a number of 'combo' mods. Check out his thread here

MaxGhost has also written a guide if you feel like combining mods yourself

Maybe, we'll see if this goes anywhere. I'm a huge supporter of customization in games, it's one of the reasons I love Valve games like L4D and TF2. I'm slowly learning just how much power S2 gives it's users in that area.

4. what's the format of these mods, if I wanted to write one

5. Originally Posted by meram

They're just edited game files repacked into a new s2z file.

7. What types of mod are going to be allowed? Only UI mods? What about sound replacements(IE replacing a hero's sounds)?

8. I noticed that Vadi's minimap drawing mod is 005 in his post, what are the 003 and 004 mods?

9. Yeah did I miss some? Also:

This thread works for now, but once we start making a ton of mods, a program will need to be made which supports "installing/managing" of mods by searching the game dir and the next available resource number. It should hold a mapping on used #'s by which mod in the event of uninstall. Any takers on developing this?

Also, should be written in Java so that it's cross platform just like HoN

15. I'm wondering.... could you make a mod that, when you mouse over an enemy hero, it calculates their Magic Armor, then tells you how much your spells would do.

Say like you're playing Thunderbringer and the enemy in your lane has 50% magic reduction. So in addition to their health when you mouseover, you get some text stating "Skill 1: X damage. Skill 2: Y damage. Ult: Z damage."

If this makes any sense, it would be an awesome mod to see, although the time it would take to make would be horrendous.
If it doesn't make sense, I'll try to reiterate.

Should we make a mod that plays the game for you as well?
