    We found this sentence:
    "Since this ability is part of the golem's nature it does not have to wait for its aura to be cleansed before using the same or another ability again".
    We do understand the meaning, but we need some help with the expression "to be cleansed". Can you please give us a synonim?

    In other words, the golem may use another ability immediately afterwards without the usual delay, as if under the effect of Improved Alacrity, but only for the next ability.

    (I should probably find a more easily understandable description for it.)
    better, more conventional phrasing instead of "empty aura"/"cleansed aura" would be "instantaneous use"

    my suggestion:
    "Since this ability is part of the golem's nature, it's use is instantaneous"

    "it's use is instantaneous" isn't perfect either since the ability has a nonzero casting time.

    How about that one:
    "Since this ability is part of the golem's nature, it can use another ability immediately afterwards without delay."

    .., it allows for another action to be performed without delay

    or
    ..., it can be used freely in a round, allowing for other actions

    "Since this ability is part of the golem's nature, it can use another ability immediately afterwards without delay."

    I think this one is just perfect :)
  • bob_vengbob_veng Member Posts: 2,307
    it's not perfect because "immediately afterwards" = "without delay" (pleonasm) :)
  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 3,135
    I have already decided. :)

    And here is the French update: ;)

    Puisque cette capacité fait partie intégrante de la nature du golem, ce dernier n'a pas besoin d'attendre avant d'entreprendre toute autre action.

    Thanks! Will be added.

    @argent77, got the clay golem book for my cleric. Although it pains me to bring this up, a cleric can make a perfect clay golem about 1million XP sooner than a mage and about 250k XP before a transmuter. Is this the way you want it?

    The power gamer in me likes that a cleric has an advantage, but not sure if the 2nd edition rules indicated that the cleric is superior at clay golem building? It seems a lesser +0, regular +1, greater +2, perfect +3 level penalty would be needed to align with a mage better.

    I'd rather not add another layer of minimum levels. The current code is already very complex. Adding an extra condition for clerics would further increase complexity. I'll check if it makes more sense to use the same conditions as for bards/thieves though.

    Edit: I forgot that it only concerns Clay Golems. Maybe there is something I can do. (Bard level adjustment wouldn't really fit either.)

    We are getting closer - we have almost finished the Italian translation of this mod.
    Question: in which format should I save the .tra files? In ANSI or in UTF8 without BOM?
    Also, I found this typo in the items.tra file:
    hightly -> highly

    UTF-8 is preferred, since this is an EE-only mod. However, setup.tra should be in plain US-ASCII, i.e. without any accented or umlaut characters. (Btw, the desired character encoding is always specified in the first line of each tra file.)

    And thanks for the spelling fix. :)

    Thanks to @rede9, we got the Italian tracks for Nym. I just need to slightly edit them. In which format should I save those files? MP3? WAV 16 bit? WAV 32 bit?

    Uncompressed WAV 16 bit or Ogg Vorbis are fine.

    Grazie ;)

    @Aedan Are you going to make the mod multilanguages or to re-release it?
  • AedanAedan Member, Translator (NDA) Posts: 8,541
    @rede9
    The mod is available in English, German, French and Polish.
    We are translating the texts in Italian language.
    Since the mod uses Nym's audio tracks, they will be included in the mod. I just had to slightly edit them - now they are perfect. That's it.

    @argent77 I ran into an annoyance. When you do spellhold, the golem waits at the entrance. This last run through, the golem in the room came out and almost killed my waiting golem before I could get to him. It was a very close call. Is there a way to have the golem auto rejoin instead of waiting for me to talk to him? That way I can have him defend, as he just stood there taking the beating.
  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 3,135
    Hmm, the problem is that auto-deactivated golems are switched to GOODBUTBLUE mode (blue circle, but counts as ally). That's why enemies will detect them as potential targets. Switching them to NEUTRAL state should solve the problem. I'll fix it in the next release.

    I want to quickly say: This is probably my personal favourite mod in a post EE world.

    Dear @argent77,

    After a very extensive and hard work, I am really glad to tell you that Italian translation of this AWESOME mod is ready!

    Attached to this post:
    - The Italian translation;
    - The Italian audio tracks for Nym. Please note that we only have four tracks; a7!nym03 does not seem to exist in the Italian version of IWD2.

    Credits go to:
    @Luke93 and Elia Danelli for the translation;
    @Aedan and @improbabile for the proofreading;
    @rede9 for the the Italian audio tracks for Nym.

    Thank you very much! I have uploaded the translation to the devel branch of the mod.

    I had to convert setup.tra to ANSI. Can you check if the installation strings are displayed correctly in the console window or tell me the correct codepage if it has to be fixed? Alternatively I could convert the file to US-ASCII (i.e. replace all accented characters).

    Do you plan to translate readme and golem information files as well? (It's *a lot of* text to translate though.)

    No readme and golem information translation.
    As for the setup.tra file, attached the ANSI format. There are no special or accented characters in that file :)
    It looks great and without error in the console window.

    Thanks. It's identical to the file I converted to ANSI though. I asked since the special characters 'à', 'ù' and 'è' are displayed as 'Ó', '¨' and 'Þ' in the console of my (non-Italian) Windows system. I'll keep it if it displays fine on your side.

    Edit: Didn't see your edit. I'll keep it as is.
  • AedanAedan Member, Translator (NDA) Posts: 8,541
    Yes, yes, I know that special or accented characters (such as à. è. ì, ò, ù) do not look correctly in the console, but there aren't in that file, so the convertion is perfect. They are displayed in a perfect way.

    When I translated other mods, I had to use a workaround to fix that, but there is no need this time. We were lucky and none of the words in that file needed accented characters :)

    @argent77, do you have an ETA to the update that addresses the Golem getting beat on in the Asylum before it rejoins the party?
  • argent77argent77 Member Posts: 3,135
    I plan to release this and other mods around the time the new game patches are released. The Spellhold fix is already included in the development branch though, so you can install and play the mod if you don't want to wait for the official release (A7-GolemConstruction-devel.zip).
