Any way to disable spell absorbtion?
      #2917346 - 08/11/04 06:07 PM

I have a spell I need to cast on the player, which fortifies multiple skills.

There seems to be a problem that if the player has any form of spell absorbtion, some of the atributes 'fail' and are fortified by zero points instead. This occurs even though the spell is set to automatically succeed.

Short of checkking for every known absorbtion spell effect, is there any other way of turning it off so I can get around this problem? Or am I simply going to have to split this up into multiple effects and then check them individually?

I think you could use the ID of the Spell Absorbtion spell effect, (67, from here so that you could maube detect if the player has it, and then remove it?

do you need to fortify or restore??? i guess fortify sins you said it but if you have all on 0 its good to restore them go to a shire thats what i do cause i am a atronach or what its called... but there is no way to disable it unless you use the cs... i think

I have the same problem: Cast fortify skills/stats and it gets absorbed some of the time. Anybody know a way around this?

Perhaps set it as a "curse" or "ability", instead of a normal spell?

Look at the Corprus scripts for more information.

If it is imperative that the effect 'wear off', then keep track of the time using GetSecondsPassed, and remove the 'curse' at that time.

For the Atronach birthsign:
Code:

If ( Player->GetSpellEffects "wombburn" == 1 )
Set IsAtronach To 1
Player->RemoveSpell "wombburn"
EndIf

;... do your stuff

If ( IsAtronach )
Player->AddSpell "wombburn"
Set IsAtronach To 0
EndIf



For other spells:
Code:

If ( Player->GetEffect sEffectSpellAbsorption == 1 )
Player->RemoveEffects 67
EndIf



The second one is pretty gay , but the only way I can figure around it is to check each of the spells you casted to make sure their effects are present. Which also sucks, esp. in my mod with 420 possible spells -- double

Anyone know a faster/easier way?

A reasonable plan, but I'm pretty sure it's impossible to remove an ability from a race or sign. The curse/ability idea sounds more promising to me.

Actually, it turns out you can remove the ability, but you can't add it back again. You need to add a custom copy of it instead.
