NAME: Fumble! Grenades - No Feedback
TYPE: Added Content
DATE RELEASED: July 7, 2017
So, some of you may remember my recent "Friendly Droid Kits" mod where I mentioned Malkior and I had been talking about fumbling grenades. Well, things happened, I got bored, and it boils down to "Why not?"
What this mod does is allow anyone who ever uses a grenade to have a chance at fumbling the throw. Essentially, the person throwing the grenade will need to make a Reflex saving throw when they go to throw the grenade. The result of the throw is then matched up against a target DC based on the thrower's level:
Levels 1-5 = DC 20
Levels 6-10 = DC 22
Levels 11-14 = DC 25
Levels 15-19 = DC 30
Levels 20-25 = DC 35
Level 26+ = DC
The scaling might seem off, but it tries to account for the better-tier items and boosts you get towards the higher levels and takes into account that it should get easier to use grenades over time.
Another thing this mod does is restore the Weapon Proficiency, Focus, and Specialization feats for the grenades. I've corrected the TLK entry for the description of the Weapon Specialization: Grenade feat to reflect the actual vanilla contents of the "k_sup_grenade.nss" script. I've also modified the use of the Weapon Focus: Grenade feat, since you don't make Attack rolls with grenades. Instead, the DC to save from fumbling will be reduced by 5 if you have the feat.
This version of the mod provides no feedback on the results of your fumble save.
An installation which involves the TSL Patcher has been made ready for your use and is the simplest and easiest way to carry out installation.
You have four options to pick from when installing the mod; these choices boil down to two separate choices
The first is whether or not to print feedback to your message log on the results of the Reflex save against fumbling.
The second is whether you want to install a version compatible with Shem's SEM - Super Enhanced Mod.
» KNOWN BUGS
Not a bug, but when you fumble a grenade, you won't know until it blows up. This is because the animation and model of the thrown grenade is specificied in spells.2da and takes a predefined course, namely at the person you're targeting.
