Full list of effects

- After generating the world map, using zone exits or recalling allows you to teleport to most reachable zones, instead of having to walk through the world map. Recalling can still drag doomelves/doombringers/demonologists to the Anteroom of Agony, and the teleportation won't let you bypass Crypt of Kryl'Feijan, Godfeaster, or the Dreadfell ambush.

- Maj'Eyal characters start with the Orb of Communication, which can be used to contact the alchemists, Elder of Last Hope, Protector Myssil, and Zemekkys when appropriate.

- Achievement pop-ups and announcing your own achievements in chat can be disabled in the game UI and Online options, respectively.

- Added an easily toggleable "digging mode" that automatically uses your Dig talent when you move into a diggable wall with no hostiles in sight.


The icon used for Toggle Digging Mode is licensed under CC-BY 3.0:
The sprite used for Orb of Communication is based on existing Tales of Maj'Eyal graphics and may not be used in other games.



- This version is not compatible with savegames from previous versions!
- Rolled Orb of Communication, No Achievement Pop-Ups, and Convenient Digging into this addon with improvements, and renamed "QuickTome QoL Changes" (previously "QuickTome: Improved Recall")
- Updated for ToME4 version 1.6.7
- Bug fix: Recall teleportation and Orb of Communication can no longer be screwed up by triggering them while controlling e.g. a golem instead of the player character
- Bug fix: Recall teleportation no longer allows teleporting to Derth when you shouldn't be able to
- Bug fix: Recall teleportation will no longer crash in custom campaigns. (do any of these exist?)
- Bug fix: Recall teleportation finally deals with Ruined Halfling Complex, Sher-Tul Fortress, and Unremarkable Cave wilderness position setting.
- Bug fix: Recall teleportation falls back to vanilla behaviour in "sub-zones" such as intimidating caves.
- Bug fix: The Kruk Pride zone exit and similar exits now offer teleportation (after you've generated the world map, of course!).
- Recall teleportation no longer allows you to postpone encountering Crypt of Kryl'Feijan or Godfeaster.
- Recall teleportation no longer allows you to teleport to Thieves' Tunnels or Tempest Peak.
- Recall teleportation can now only be used after you've generated the world map by visiting it once (campaigns often expect you to generate the world map before entering some zones).
- Orb of Communication is now instant to use
- Orb of Communication can no longer be used in areas where Rod of Recall cannot be used
- Orb of Communication finally has a custom sprite
- Orb of Communication no longer offers combat/staff/mindstar training (the conditions for when you can get staff training are too complicated...)
- Safeguarded against Orb of Communication being used while not controlling the character
- Convenient Digging is no longer implemented as a sustained talent (since it interacted with Entropy and such). Instead, digging mode is indicated in the effect area like Cloak of Deception.
- Convenient Digging now automatically uses the Dig talent instead of replacing the talent. This fixes all digging time disparities.
- Convenient Digging now only digs when you try to move into a feature that is actually diggable and there are no hostiles in sight.
- You can now toggle achievement pop-ups in the UI options.
