Medieval Europe Release 2.9.5 – Skills
Release 2.5.1 will introduce Skills in ME. A player will be able to build a specific path/profile for his character by choosing which skills invest his time and resources.
A character may have at max 3 skills, and cost of learning skills increases depending on how many skills the character has. Since every day skill proficiency is reduced, the player will need to choose which skills to learn and which one to use.
Players will be able to earn skills by studying c/o Academy or Training Grounds or by completing Quests. It is possible at any time, to remove a skill.
In order to make the studying skills possible, it has been necessary to rewrite structures engine: almost all the structures are now upgradable if configured by administration.
All Structure engine has been reengineered to make almost every structure upgradable if configured by Administration.
Training Grounds and Academies will be configured to be upgradable up to level 2. If an Academy/Training Ground is upgraded to level 2, the Academy Director/Drill Sargent will be able to install 1 (one) new course.
To upgrade an Academy/Training Ground to level 2, the following material and working hours are required:
The structure owner will be able to set an hourly salary for people that wants to help upgrading the structure. When the owner launches the upgrade, the required items will be removed from structure storage and a link ‘Build’ will appear in the structure popup.
Once a Kingdom upgrades an Academy/Training Ground, the Academy Director will be able to choose the Course to install from the following available courses:
|Academy||Metallurgy I||Recuperate Iron||Recuperate Iron from used weapons|
|Training Grounds||Fight techniques I||Parry||Enhance chance to parry a hit|
Studying a course (for increasing an attribute or gaining skill), will consume support items (Paper Piece in Academies, Wood Dummies in Training Grounds), therefore fewer lesson hours will be available.
In order to study or learn a skill @Academy or Training ground, a character must be dressed in a proper way and hold a Writing Kit (Academy) or Wooden Sword (Training Grounds). Paper pieces are provided by Academies while Wooden Dummies are provided by Training Grounds.
1 hour of lesson will consume 1 Paper Piece (Academy) or 4% of a Wooden Dummy (Training Grounds). Cost for one hour of lesson is configurable by the Structure owner.
NOTE: The game will donate to the newborn that will start the Quest Training a Writing Kit and a Wooden Sword at 10% Condition.
A character may have (for now) up to 3 skills. The number of hours to learn a skill increases directly with the number of skill owned:
|Owned Skills||Needed Hours for next skill||Days needed (9hrs x day)||Months|
When the player earns the skills his proficiency will be set initially at 10%.
Whenever the player uses the skills, it will increase by a factor x that depends it the action related to skill was successful or not (If applicable). Skill proficiency decreases by a factor y every 24 hours.
Note: If the player is meditating (holiday mode), the skill won’t decrease.
Factor x and y depends on the skill.
Every recuperate iron action will increase the skill proficiency by a factor 1.
If a parry is successful, skill will be increased by 0.5.
- Proficiency Increase: 1
- Proficiency Daily Decrease: 0.1
This skill permits to recuperate iron from items containing iron. In order to do that, the Player will need to have in the Blacksmith Storage:
- a Furnace;
- 5 Coal Pieces;
- some items with condition < 100% and containing iron.
To recuperate iron, the character will need to click on the furnace and then click Recuperate Iron.
Once the action finishes, all the items in the shop inventory containing iron and with condition < 100 will be destroyed and he will find the corresponding iron pieces in the shop inventory accordingly to the following formula
Recuperated Iron = f( ironusedinitems, proficiency )
If a longsword (15 iron pieces) and a pickaxe (8 iron pieces) is put in the blacksmith inventory, and the skill proficiency is at 10%, after the action Recuperate Iron finishes the player will find in his inventory around 10 pieces of iron.
- Duration: 8 hours
- Energy required: (20%)
- Glut required: (20%)
- Must Equip: Shovel
- Required Items: 5 Coal Pieces, Furnace, items with iron
- Consumption: Shovel (high), Furnace (0.25%), clothes (very high)
The Skill parry gives to the character an additional defense option in battle. The skill parry is activated only if the attacker uses a weapon and the defender holds a weapon or a shield.
If an enemy successfully rolls to hit and the defender has the parry skills, he will have the following chance to parry the hit:
Chance to parry = Skill proficiency * 50%
The chance to parry can then go from 0% to 50%.
If the player tries to parry the hit and fails, the proficiency will be increased by
Delta Proficiency: round(100-Skill proficiency)/130+0.2,2)
If the players tries to parry and succeeds, the skill proficiency won’t increase.
The skills will decrease daily by 0.3.
