0.5.3.0: Reset without Regrets

Somehow the strategus reset seems to have gone off fine. No massive bugs as of yet. I'll discuss that more in Strategus 7 thread (coming soon)

Don't have the energy to write much out now, worked all day on getting patch/reset ready. But I'll cover the jist of 0.5.3.0.

Changes to xbows:
-Light Xbow requires 76 xbow WPF
-Normal Xbow requires 100 xbow WPF
-Heavy Xbow requires 139 xbow WPF
-Arbalast requires 121 xbow WPF

Changes to bows:
-All bows received -2 to accuracy, a change that was never implemented when their damage was lowered a ways back, which gave them more accuracy then they needed
-Effective WPF curve changed to benefit agi-archers, their effective WPF has been raised

Changes to throwing:
-Several items were altered. These changes were implemented to curb the high abuse potential of throwing, and are likely to be followed by further changes. It's possible that the changes made today will be changed later

Changes to shields:
-The larger/heavier shields had their weights lowered to make them less cumbersome to use in a fight. Some changes here and there to other shield stats

Changes to leveling:
Yes, another leveling change, surprise surprise. This should be an improvement on current system. In general, the XP for levels 31+ was lowered, especially so for levels 35+, such that they are now attainable. However, having these builds more than 5 levels over the retirement level be full power wasn't a good option. So, levels 35+ no longer award a skill points & attribute point, instead, they give just a small health bonus ingame. As of now, each level 3536+ (including 3536) gives out only 2 more health. There are plans to add on a WPF bonus as well (which will only be usable towards hybridization). This is a totally different system than has been used before, so it'll be a bit funky in the beginning.
Here are the new xp requirements for levels 31+

         New                Old
31: Same xp           Same xp
32: 26207529       29119477
33: 86208979       97064922
34: 201214256     323549741
35: 366224679     1617748704
36: 576240509     8088743519
37: 826260949     40443717592
38: 1111284144   (numbers were absurdly large at this point)
39: 1426307181
40: 1766326089
41: 2126335839

As usual, I've probably forgotten a lot. When I get a chance tomorrow, or later this week, I'll flesh this post out more with juicy details and whatnot.

Item Changes:
(click to show/hide)

New:
Leveling
-Level 35 is no longer the cutoff point for only receiving health bonus, now 36 is the cutoff. So, all levels less than 36 behave normally, but for levels 36+, players only receive an extra health bonus (per level)

Shields
-Shield skill is now treated similarly to horse archery skill, where each point in shielding gives 2x normal amount, but requires AGI >= shieldskill * 6 to invest a point
-Additionally, shield difficulties have been lowered by 1 across the board, the highest difficulty shield is now difficulty 3

Bows
-Bow accuracy has been decreased by 3 across the board with some slight variations (meant to implement this last week but did not get around to it
-Reverted Archery WPF malus formula back to 2012; malus = 14 * PD

Cleanup
-Poked around the master cRPG computer & hopefully resolved some lingering issues from December. Equipment box may be fixed now
-Fixed the new items, they actually appear now (according to resource files, new items should be working, but apparently not)

Things to come:
-More Zimke items!
-Additional crossbows from CWE OSP
-Further balance tweaks to ranged
-Fixes to strat bugs
-Fix new item textures

don't have time at the moment, but I will look through the requests for heirloom exchanges and deal with them.

i figured that if they do happen to come back, they'll need some help to stand a chance against those of us who have kept playing the mod & are practically gods at this point.

You need to find out what killed the resurrected mod once again and reverse it instead of reset and shit.

-Light Xbow requires 76 xbow WPF
-Normal Xbow requires 100 xbow WPF
-Heavy Xbow requires 139 xbow WPF
-Arbalast requires 121 xbow WPF
What is it done for?
So that the melee/archer/cavalry/throw peasants can not take the sacred weapon in battle?

Changes to bows:
-All bows received -2 to accuracy, a change that was never implemented when their damage was lowered a ways back, which gave them more accuracy then they needed
-Effective WPF curve changed to benefit agi-archers, their effective WPF has been raised
Archers, as before, can kill with three shots?

Overall the patch looks pretty decent. My only concern is that now shields stand no chance against crushthrough.  :(
