[Sub-Mod] Valyrian Blood V0.5.9

PostPosted by unsavory » Sun Mar 27, 2016 15:54

VALYRIAN BLOOD
A Rework of Blood of Valyria

This mod builds off the Blood of Valyria-submod by Sarcastik.
Updating and reworking it to work with newer versions of AGOT and CK2

What does it do?
On start up, every character, past and present, will be judged, determining how strong the Valyrian blood is in their system, and a Trait to reflect your status. This is inherited by your children.

Rather than culture, Blood Purity will be used to determine hatching and taming of Dragons (reducing cultures effect marginally or in certain places removing it all together). In the same vein, any sufficiently pure characters will
get the get the Blood of Valyria modifier.

Landed Dragonlords can get up to 6 Dragon Eggs (1 on them and 5 hidden in a cache at their capital). The Cache is inherited by the next holder, and if starting in a scenario before the end of the Age of Dragons, these Dragonlords will start with three eggs in their cache.

The as the Head of a Dragonlord Dynasty you may take any other Dynasty members eggs.

Like before there are certain tiers:
1 Pure Pre-Conquest Dragonlords: Currently only Targaryens qualify. 100%
2 High Born Valyrians: Families with strong ties to Valyria, Velaryon and Certain Merchant Families (High Born Valyrian of Volantis and Lysene for instance.) 75%
3 Common Valyrian: Like Lysene and Tyroshi Colonists. 50%
4 Blood Drops: Mere drops of the Valyrian descent remain. Like some common folk of Volantis 25%
5 Those without any Valyrian blood in them. 0%

The strength of your blood might get diluted over time, but can increase by taming Dragons, and gets gradually stronger by being a Dragon Rider. It might also get weaker if you fail at taming a Dragon.

Old Versions and Original Post:
Spoiler: show
So I love the Blood of Valyria submod, to me it makes just makes more sense.
So I checked in with Sarcastik and well:

Sarcastik wrote:Hi,

Sorry for the late answer, but I've been quite busy those past months and I don't really have time to update the mod. Sadly I think I won't have time to do so before the summer I believe.

*snip*


Sarcastik wrote:What does it do?
- Every character gets a Valyrian blood trait and a blood flag (invisible) that relates to his/her Valyrian ancestry, those are then inherited by their children
- Blood matters more than culture (reduced to 10% of AGOT value) with the dragon taming and egg hatching, such as not being of Valyrian culture is not such a big deal if you can prove a Dragonlord ancestry
- Pure born Valyrian, regardless of culture, get the Blood of Valyria modifier
- In other words it is easier to run a dragon farming operation even if you're not a Targ

Here is the actual logic for the flags and trait
Top-tier: Conquest Targaryen, descedant of dragon lords [High born Valyrian]
Second-tier: High Valyrian lesser nobilities, merchant families (ie Velaryon, Volantene and Lysene rich families) [High born Valyrian]
Third-tier: Common Valyrian (ie Lysene or Tyroshi colonist) or high born métis [Common/Métis Valyrian]
Fourth-tier: Low born metis and mongrel [Valyrian blood drops]
Fifth-tier: No relation to Valyrian blood whatsoever [no blood trait]


So sadly it is not currently under development, and wont be for a while. In the mean time I have made a very basic update, for my personal use, simply getting it to work.

:!: This is NOT an official update, merely a update to get by while Sarcastik is away and busy, released with his permission.:!:

Mind reminding us what the original mod did? :)

Is it the one that maintains the valyrian features (silver hair etc.)?

Are targaryens the only dragonlords? Also, does having the occasional martel marry into the line of targaryen dilute their blood permanently?

And does this mean that velaryons and other high valyrion families of the dragonstones are lesser blood than the ruling class from old valryia?

Yeah the Valaryons were I think High Valyrian Stewards under the Targaryens (kind of like how the old old blood in Westeros view Tyrells and Tullys as upstarts bc they weren't royal-noble before Aegon gave them their Paramoncy) and were brought with them as part of their court and given land. No other Dragonlords except Aegon I's father survived

So I don't remember too much from updating the history files, but no Targaryens are not the only Valyrian High Born. Not everyone's blood is as pure, but some Essosi Valyrian (the ruling class, as well as some randomly generated characters), and many Velaryons are full bloods.

Marrying people of non-valyrian blood will dilute the blood, and at some point lessen the tier (trait).
However it's not necessarily permanent. There's a chance to raise the strength of the blood by hatching and taming dragons.

Hope that answers your questions.

Edit:
Also updated Dragon Tamer Version to be compatible with newest version

Re: [Sub-Mod] Valyrian Blood

I have a question (and maybe slight concern) about this mod. mostly, about the Hidden Egg Stash for dragons. First, is it that at the start of the game the stash already contains 3 eggs? Second, It always hatches dragons with random parentage. I'm quite nitpicky about which dragons are born to which dynasty, and by that I mean I only want Targaryen-born dragons, and whenever an egg is laid by any of the three Targ dragons starting from Aegon's Conquest, they usually fire an event stating to which parentage the dragon egg was born(laid) into, thus keeping at least that actual line of dragons to the Targaryen dragon dynasty, but so far that isn't fired when using the mod, thus creating more dragon dynasties. And when an egg is actually laid by any of the three (Balerion, Vhagar, Meraxes), at least from any of my sisters, when I took the egg and hatched the dragon from that egg, the parentage became random. Can the mod be edited in a way which would correct or fire the event so that the dragons born are from within their respective parentage and not random? At least when they do or are laid by already living dragons? I don't really fancy the 'always random dragon dynasty' thing everytime I hatch newer dragons from eggs taken from the stash.

But I love the idea of the mod. Thanks.

So first question, is yes and no. I believe all Targaryen rulers start with three eggs.

Second, yeah current system for the egg stash does not remember the parent of the egg, sadly.

It supposed remember the parent of the egg for everything not involving the stash (or other mods adding dragon egg related interactions). Might have uploaded the wrong file for the standard version. I'll look into it.

But about the stash, keep in mind this is not my code. I only made it compatible with 1.1 and Dragon Tamer Laws.

I'm going to go over the mod and might make a completely new version. If I end up doing that the stash is one of my main goals.

SinStar already helped me with the traits so, either way for the next version (completely redone or not) the history files should no longer be used and then no one would start with a stash.

I hope that answered your questions

Hey,

Some precision about the stash in the original version (BoV).

it was attended to allow player getting eggs even though there was no relative to give them (in the case fertility in the Targ family was slower than its dragon). The initial stash was made to counter-act the opposite possibility (high Targ fertility, but slow dragons'), plus it was likely that family had a stash of eggs seeing how they just handed them over.

The problem of that solution is that obviously dragon lineage could not be set (and so a new dragon dynasty was started). I tried to work around (setting the older dragon in the Targ's dragon dynasty as the parent) but that failed.

I'm happy to see my work found life in other's project, I might myself resume modding in July and I'm exited to see what would have added or modified until then.

Good work, unsavory!

Hey. Thanks for this btw. True, the Targs had lots of it, the eggs, but canon dictates it may have already come from the 5 dragons (or at least just Balerion) they already had for the past century after they settled at Dragonstone. Plus, they had innumerable amounts of eggs for at least a century since a lot of the dragons (mostly Balerion and Vhagar and their brood since Meraxes died and wasn't really declared to have laid eggs or something if I remember from the books) lay clutches. And a clutch, that's around 15 at least. Anyway, part of my concern (and thanks for answering btw :D I love the idea of the mod and its possibilities of 'birthing' more dragons ASAP) is that I hate seeing more dynasties of dragons and I have a 'thing' for 'dragon farming' in-game since it's fun for me. Plus I hate the names these new 'dynasty' of dragon or dragons create. It also makes it 'feel better' that at least in-game the dragons and their line also are traceable. :D Hoping though something for this specific request is done. It makes storytelling and chronicling feel better, anyway at least IMO.

Thanks Sarc!
I plan to work on a proper update after I release my next version of DLC Portraits.
With the help of SinStar I got a way to help stave off random dynasties for the dragons for that version, we'll see how long it takes to get it done.

Anyone who's downloaded the update, hold off a bit on using it. Noticed a lot of missing brackets in the code. Copy pasted something and missed one bracket. I'll throw some more things in tomorrow, (Like missing localization) instead of uploading the fix right now.

Fixed the major issues, added some localization and fixed the issue with large gaps in Blood Purity.
There's now a (working) decision to move your cache to your new capital, unless the old capital is no longer in your realm.

Edit:
Fixed download link pointing to wrong file and added Dragon Tamer compatible version.

Interesting mod! I noticed in the latest bookmark the Baratheon's and their bastards don't seem to have any dragon blood; shouldn't they have a few drops themselves as Roberts ancestor grandmother (and vague claim to the Iron Throne) was a Targ? Not sure if any other of the noble families have any Targ ancestors, I know other noble families married IN to the Royal family (such as the Arynns) don't think it worked the other way very often except in the Baratheon case.

Forgive me for sounding stupid but what is the difference in the two download options?
