Introduction of Treasure Goblin Plugin
Hello, I am Nizari and I'v been reading Phrozen Keep regularly since about 10 years. Somewhere at the end of 2017, I have joined the Discord channel, promising myself to register on the forum too at some point. In december I have asked Jetaman if he would be able to rip Treasure Goblin animations from Diablo 3. I always wanted to implement these exciting monsters in the mod I'm working on since years, also, I always wanted to release some nice public plugin, to give something from me to the community, which would be useful for other modders. Jetaman has agreed on helping to achieve this together. All those things gave me a perfect opportunity/reason to register on the forum and great material for the plugin.
The first animations we had were looking like this:
Additionally, the death animation has been completly broken and unable to be ripped.
Not long after, with my suggestion of merging D2's red portal animation with the goblin, Jetaman did this fantastic thing:
We had all the animations ready. I have also succesfully implemented it into the game and configured everything. At this moment 2 problems occured: how to make the portal animation transparent and how to make the goblin truly and permanently dissapear after he "runs away" through his portal (believe me, it's not as easy as it sounds). Thanks to Necrolis, who has taught me...
Eastern Sun Rises Beginnings
About half a year ago I started to share my modifications I made for Eastern Sun. I began with little fixes and the Gold pickup.dll. I continued to fix bugs and balance a few things. I also introduced new items and replaced many item graphics. Not all of these changes were well received by all players. I remember discussions in a length the ES Subforum hasnt seen in a long time. Back then I decided to change the name to Eastern Sun Rises to cut short all those discussions whether it's still an unofficial patch or an independent mod. As a result Eastern Sun Rises yet again, like a phönix out of the ashes.
Around that time we started tou use discord and what can I say, it has been a blast. Since then about every other day new people join us to play some ES again and talk about old times. ESR as it is began to grow, not comparable to mods like Path of Diablo or Resurgence, but for ES itself quite a lot. We continued to add QoL features like Bufficons and the possibility to dye your equipment as you want. You might have noticed that I spoke of us. Back then aught/mak, thaison and sky aka max joined to devteam to help out here and there. Without the help of mnw1995 and dav92 that wouldnt have been possible either. Another shout out to Ogodei and Spike who helped me on many small things that I cant count anymore.
Most of you have noticed for sure,...
