QuickTome: Full

QuickTome: Full

The full suite of QuickTome changes.

The general principles are to get rid of grinding, shorten the Maj'Eyal campaign, and make the game harder. There are tons of changes to this effect, but here is a short summary of them:
- The lighting system is removed and sight radius is locked at 10. LOS and ranges are square and more consistent. Players cannot be blinded and can always see invisible/stealthed creatures. Divinations, Track, telepathy, etc. are removed; you cannot detect monsters that are out of LOS.
- Traveling between zones is much faster.
- Resources like equilibrium, vim, etc. regenerate normally.
- Stat requirements are removed.
- (Maj'Eyal campaign only) Much fewer zones, and some zones are shortened or otherwise changed. Experience and items are improved somewhat, but this only partially compensates; the game is still harder overall.
- (Maj'Eyal campaign only) Zones have fixed levels instead of scaling themselves to your level.
- (Maj'Eyal campaign only) No more grinding opportunities. Summons don't give experience or items.
- (Maj'Eyal campaign only) Random uniques/bosses appear on Normal and Nightmare as well as Insane.
- Loads of other tweaks to zones, items, vaults, NPCs, talents, and so on.

A new starting quest in the Maj'Eyal campaign will tell you what you need to know.

It is recommended not to enable this addon at the same time as other QuickTome addons, as this addon already contains all their features, so they will do nothing but increase loading times.

Changelog

1.0.0

- Initial release

1.0.1

- Fix Sandworm Lair removal (oops)

1.0.2

- Shorten Temporal Rift
- Add a marker for use by qt-improved-recall (not visible to player)

1.0.3

- Hotfix for Temporal Rift exit

1.0.4

- Removed Shadow Crypt.
- Only two of the Trollmire, Ruins of Kor'Pul, Norgos' Lair, Heart of the Gloom, Scintillating Caves, and Rhaloren Camp may be entered each game. After entering two, the other four become inaccessible. The guardians in Heart of the Gloom, Scintillating Caves, and Rhaloren Camp no longer have specific artifacts associated with them (they always give random ones).
- The Trollmire no longer has its final level (Bill's lair), but Bill replaces Prox or Shax.
- Ruins of Kor'Pul and Rhaloren Camp no longer generate glowing chests.
- Actor experience value in Maj-Eyal is slightly increased (+10%).
- Fixed possible crash when loading entity files (especially in Infinite Dungeon/Arena)

1.0.5

- Actually upload the right version (oops again)

1.0.6

- *Probably* fix a seemingly random bug that prevents the starter zones quest from updating

1.0.7

- Actually fix that bug (the culprit was a combination of "restart with the same character", and me being stupid)

1.0.8

- Fix serialization bug with zone entrance removal (and generally make the code for it less stupid).

1.0.9

- The backup guardians quest is now granted when a portal to Maj'Eyal is created, instead of when it is used, since users of qt-improved-recall have no need to use the portal directly.
- The west-portal quest, orc-pride quest, and Relentless Pursuit talent are now granted upon entering the Far East, removing the need to talk to Aeryn and Zemekkys to get them.
- The first level has been cut from each of Gorbat, Rak'Shor, and Vor prides, leaving them at 2 levels each. Grushnak Pride is unchanged.
- The first two levels have been cut from ErĂșan.
- The overpowered greater multi-hued wyrms in the Vor Armoury now give the "normal" amount of experience for their level and rank, instead of triple experience like they do in vanilla. In Zone Overhaul games, players shouldn't be reaching level 50 before they even prides or farportals.

1.0.10

- The tier 1 zone quest is now correctly updated when the player teleports to level 2 of a zone via the Celestial starting quest.

1.0.11

- Removed Briagh's Lair and moved the Resonating Diamond to Vor Armoury
- Removed the first 5 levels from High Peak
- Increased experience bonus to +20%
- Improved item quality

1.0.12

- Removed first level of Abashed Expanse
- Removed second and third levels of Conclave Vault
- Removed first level of Daikara
- Removed first two levels of Grushnak Pride
- Removed first level of Old Forest

1.0.13

- Removed ErĂșan and Charred Scar
- Made High Peak and final fight act as if Charred Scar was completed successfully
- Increased most sources of gold by 50%
- Removed shop buy/transmogrification limit
- Update superload list
- Add ritches to Mark of the Spellblaze
- Add spiders to Reknor
- The Transmogrification Chest always uses Extract Gems if available (and it would increase the gold value); you are not required to upgrade it in the fortress.

1.0.14

- Updated for ToME4 1.4.0

1.0.15

- Updated for ToME4 1.4.8
- Now compatible with the Automated Portable Extractor from Embers of Rage. (This is only relevant when playing Maj'Eyal characters with an APE; the orcs campaign is not shortened yet and for now you should disable this addon there.)
- Greatly improved campaign detection. Almost no changes are applied to games in non-Maj'Eyal campaigns now.

1.0.16

- Fixed extremely embarrassing regression that inverted the logic of the transmogrification price cap change.

1.0.17

- Removed the first four levels of Dreadfell. It now has two backup guardians per level.
- Removed events, items, and NPCs from Golem Graveyard.

1.0.18

- Merged Rak'shor and Vor Pride into Rak'Vor Pride.
- Merged Grushnak and Gorbat Pride into Grushbat Pride.
- Removed the following backup guardians: Corrupted Sand Wyrm, Nimisil, Snaproot, Spellblaze Simulacrum, The Abomination. The Wyrm Bile, Atamathon's Ruby Eye, Lunar Shield, Crystal Heart, and Petrified Wood have been redistributed to the other backup guardians (in addition to their normal drops).
- Increased experience multiplier from 20% to 25%.
- Completely overhauled item drop weights to be more coherent and consistent. (The only change here that players are likely to notice is that bosses drop uniques more often).

1.0.19

- Fixed bug that made the wrong item drop tables apply in some situations

1.0.20

- Fixed possible crash in entityFilterAlter

1.0.21

- Greatly reduce lesser vault frequency in Grushbat Pride

1.0.22

- Removed Flooded Cave, Temple of Creation, Derth, Elvala, Shatur, Unremarkable Cave
- Removed shops except for the lost merchant (you can still buy combat/staff/mindstar training and imbue rings)
- Stire and Marus have moved to Last Hope
- Made Tempest Peak revealed from the start
- Joining Zigur now grants Fungus immediately
- Legacy of the Naloren no longer has special requirements; learning Legacy of the Naloren now grants the trident immediately
- Zone base levels no longer depend on the player's level

1.0.23

- Updated for ToME4 version 1.5.1

1.0.24

- Removed an unused superload
- Nerfed fixed levels on Nightmare and Insane a bit. Tier 2 zones were being fixed at level 24 on Insane, compared to ranges of 11.5-25 in vanilla. (Vanilla Madness is lower than that!) Coupled with the loss of shops, villager experience, and most tier 1 zones, Insane was nearly impossible. The zone level multiplier has been reduced from 1.5 to 1.35 and the extra constant added levels have been changed to the 1.5.5 ones. This will still result in higher zone levels than in vanilla in almost all cases - along with all the other difficulty increases. Madness is unchanged.
- Added randbosses to Normal and Nightmare to make those difficulty levels a bit more challenging.

1.0.25

- Shortened High Peak further, from 5 to 3 levels.

- Bindings/Crown of Eternal Night can now generate anywhere
- Brotherhood of Alchemists quest is gone. The extra talent points from Elixir of Focus and Foundations are given at levels 5, 7, 10, and 12.
- Traveling east establishes a farportal in both towns immediately; no more There/Back and Back/There Again quests. Zemekkys' door is gone.
- Removed backup guardians. You get a category point at level 40 to make up for the loss of Wyrm Bile.
- Removed Tannen and the corresponding zones (Telos' Bottom Half can now generate anywhere)
- Removed Melnela
- World/boss artifacts are no longer restricted by continent
- Nerfed vault items but slightly increased floor unique drops

1.0.28

- Reduced Maze zone level from 14 to 10
- Reduced Old Forest zone level from 14 to 12
- Added a quest with information about Zone Overhaul and available zones
- Made starting quest more likely to successfully be given on weird premade characters etc
- Fixed Agrimley appearing in the wilderness despite his quest being gone

1.0.29

- Fix bug preventing the starting quest from being given if you had an Arena champion

1.0.30

- Fix "restart with the same character" bug with starting zones quest (AGAIN)

1.0.31

- Fix Legacy of the Naloren not being correctly marked as twohanded

1.0.32

- Repurposed and renamed this addon as "QuickTome: Full". The features of Creature Changes, Improved Recall, Item Tweaks, Remove Stat Requirements, Remove Traps, Resource Tweaks, Sight Overhaul, Square Field of Vision, and Vault Tweaks are integrated into it, so you needn't download them separately unless you want to use a subset of them in "normal" games.

- Maj'Eyal: Increased Daikara's level from 14 to 16.

Reknor?

Any reason why Reknor is left at 4 floors?

Love this addon. I would

Love this addon.

I would greatly enjoy an all-in-one download option like the zomnibus pack, but thanks a bunch for making these whether you decide to pack them together or not!

Not sure what you mean - you just DL the latest file and you are getting everythingg described here (hence all of the downloads having the same file name but different dates).
