Just downloaded this mod. Amazing, so far!

However, I've got a question. When I play as a Shapeshifter in Adventure mode, how do I, well, shapeshift?

Hi Kyuukeysuki, welcome to Highfantasy!
I'm amused to say that it never occurred to me to actually add a shapeshifting interaction. This is mostly because I can't overcome the social networks present in adventure mode... which is most of the purpose of shapeshifting in fantasy media.

However. It should be fairly straightforward (a bit of work, but not overly complicated) to add in some temporary shapeshifting interactions to that creature for 1.5. Off the top of my head, I think shapeshifters should be able to shift into any of the 14 playable races (for a short time but with no recharge timer), and probably the other intelligent humanoids (like dragonfolk) too, althogh that's a bit more work. What else feels like it's really missing? Definitely looking at input here, although this is a ways off

Otherwise 1.5 work continues and it's almost exclusive language file stuff at the moment.

Just wanted to chime in to say this mod looks great! I'm coming back to the game after a long while and this has all of the things I was looking to kludge together into my personal mod already done, haha -- Sver combat, fresh coat of paint with the new beasts and civs that's stylish but meshes with the original feel, clean errorlog... I just rolled up a half-human adventurer in a town overtaken by serpentfolk and I'm stoked to see what's out there. Thanks a bunch!

I am often bad at phrasing things - don't hesitate to ask for clarification if something I said doesn't make sense.

Is it normal for undeath to be basicaly invincible ? No atack that I use on them, with my cimitar, is eable to separate or destroy there heads and so I am uneable to kill any of them

Thanks Trees, I'm so happy you're enjoying!
I've been on a long, boring hiatus while doing some new language files (so you can name your fortress the Enmity of Spell Charges, haha), but Highfantasy is always on the mind. I'm also constantly reviewing notes from DF to think how I'll hand the port to Premium. it'll be a great time. Post your thoughts on the mod!

Holam - this is the one outstanding bug that I can't seem to resolve. Others have reported on it. Not sure what change to what caused that... I'll give it full testing priority once we're done with language updates! Or maybe it will randomly make sense to me one day like the former frostbite bug did.

I think that I have found the reason why it happens, It is related to the weapon expertise and the body part one decides to chop, the higher your ability with the weapon the easier it is, and the more sturdy the part is the harder it is to cut, and it is impossible to cut a body part in one swing without enough experience with one weapon, making undead basically impossible to kill, in my limited experience
the easier way that I have found is to go for the neck with a cutting attack

Holam - thanks, that's really good info. I wonder if some changes in HF are making all body part connections more sturdy, and perhaps vanilla undeath ALSO make parts more sturdy, making this apparent.

Vanilla necromancy is hard-coded, so I can't edit that, but I might be able to make necks easier to chop off across the board, giving a reasonable and realistic way to handle these undead.

How is "going for the neck with a cutting attack" working out for you?

-------------------------------------------

Unrelated: Squirttle123 let me know via an email that the frontpage instructions were misleading on how to get that first faint yellow diamond, required for crafting a spellbook in both adventure and fort modes. I was pointing players to the wrong reaction; the correct reaction is "Create Spell Charges," which has a 1% chance of producing the desired gem. The frontpage has been updated to address this. Thanks!

As of now "cutting necks" has only been possible with a scimitar, also, as I have been trying different methods for killing it would appear that advancing in a combat skill has no visible effect whatsoever, which could be related to the problem, also half angels can shoot an unlimited amount of projectiles with there innate habilities, making very easy to get a legendary throwing ability. 

Edit : grammar
