I am wondering why the new HLA tables cap the physical damage resistance of all classes (except Barbarians) to 75%. The readme just speaks of a generic way to stop possible abuses but I am not that kind of player and I don't need that.

Since I never liked capping anything, I'd ask if it's possible/easy to remove it completely from that component in some way.

Thanks! :cheers:

You'd need to comment out the following snippet:
ACTION_IF NOT FILE_EXISTS ~override/tb#resisttweak.txt~ THEN
		COPY_EXISTING ~sw1h01.itm~ ~override/tb#resisttweak.txt~
		COPY ~refinements/armor/copy~ ~override~
		EXTEND_TOP ~baldur.bcs~ ~refinements/armor/baldur.baf~
				EXTEND_TOP ~baldur.bcs~ ~refinements/armor/baldur.baf~
from both refinements/lib/armor.tpa and refinements/lib/hlab.tpa.

I'm not confortable with adding this as a choice, because
- we'd end up having 9876543210 customization choices for every component
- "do you want to add a limitation?" - components/questions are useless, because if you want to 'abuse' the available options to get >=100% physical DR then you won't install the specific component, whereas if you didn't want to get >= 100% DR, the component would be useless.

Of course, I'm not going to stop people from editing stuff on their end ;)

Maybe you could start a customization thread. If people have a question like Salk's, you could post a reply just like you did in this thread. That would limit the annoying questions for you and give one easy place for people to go to in order to tinker with their own install. :cheers:

I thank you for your help with my problem, the_bigg.

I perfectly understand that you don't want to insert too many options at installation level. I am sure that each person has different preferences and it is impossible to make all happy. But your answer solves my personal issue so thank you again. :cheers:
