Changing birthsigns (menu size).
      #2652617 - 06/03/04 12:20 AM

Basically, the birthsigns are pretty much unbalanced, so I'm making a mod to change some stuff.

The problem is that the box in-game that tells you what the birthsign gives you - it has no scroll bar, so some of the information is NOT VISIBLE. That's annoying. How do I change that?

*******

Forthe record, here are the changes:

Race Changes
============


Argonian
--------

The beast races can't wear helmets and boots. But they still got the same pool of stat points as everyone else. I've given the Argonians and Kahjiit 10 extra stat points.

Endurance -> From 30 to 35 in both male and female.
Luck -> From 40 to 45 in both male and female.

New Spell:
Argonian Swim -> A low cost swift swim spell


High Elf
--------

Previously this race was totally laughable for their embarassing and fatal weaknesses to everything magical. A better chance that you won't catch a cold from a creature and, a bit more mana wasn't enough to cover up the fatal flaws.

Magicka Bonus -> From 1.5*INT to 1.8*INT
Weakness to Magicka -> From 50% to 30%
Weakness to Fire -> From 50% to 25%
Weakness to Frost -> From 25% to 0%
Weakness to Shock -> From 25% to 0%
Shock Resistance -> From 0% to 25%

Khajiit
-------

The beast races can't wear helmets and boots. But they still got the
same pool of stat points as everyone else. I've given the Argonians and Kahjiit 10 extra stat points.

Speed -> From 40 to 45 in both male and female.
Personality -> From 40 to 35 in both male and female.
Luck -> From 40 to 50 in both male and female.


Birthsign Changes
=================

All birthsigns get a Magicka bonus of 1.0*INT, in addition to other abilities. There's probably a better way to hack this change in, but I put that in this way for testing.

The Tower
---------

New Power:
Shield of the Tower -> A 25 point shield of Frost, Fire and Shock,
and a +10 to the Block skill for 30 seconds

The Steed
---------

Changed Ability:
Charioteer -> In addition to the 25 point increase in speed, it also
fortifies fatigue by 50 points. (or is that 5.0*SPEED)?

The Thief
---------

Changed Ability:
Akaviri Danger Sense -> In addition to the 10 point sanctuary bonus, it
fortifies Agility by 10 points, and Luck by 10 points



The Shadow
----------

Changed Power:
Moonshadow -> This is now a spell instead of a power, but it still offers
invisibility for 60 seconds.

New Power:
Window of the Moon -> A power that gives you 50% Chameleon for 60 seconds

The Serpent
-----------

New Spell:
Serpent Strike -> Fortifies Agility, Speed and Sneak for 60 seconds, and also turns the player invisible for 60 seconds.

The Lover
------------

New Spell:
Lover's Smile -> Charm 10 points on target for 10 seconds.

The Lord
--------

New Ability:

Conviction of the Lord -> Fortify Willpower by 25 points.

Changed Ability:
Trollkin -> Weakeness to Fire changed from 100% to 50%.

New Power:
The Lord's Command -> Command Creature or Humanoid 10 levels for 45 seconds.

The Warrior
------------

Changed Ability:
Wayward -> In addition to fortifying atack by 10 points, it Fortifies
It fortifies Endurance and Strength by 10 points.

You could try changing these lines in Morrowind.ini:

MenuConsole-MenuBirthSign=1.7 0.9805 0.8750 0.5000 0.1250 0.9805 0.3750 0.6500 0.0083 0 0 0
MenuStatReview-MenuBirthSign=1.7 0.0000 0.0000 0.5000 0.5000 0.0000 0.0000 0.5000 0.5000 0 0 1

I think those have to do with menu position/size, but I couldn't tell you exactly what each number means.

It IS possible, and I think manauser's correct in that those lines do the trick. I couldn't tell you either what each one does though.

however, I CAN tell you that the morrowind FPS optimizer program does what you're looking to do. It will adjust the interface sizes. Check out that program, see if it has any info in it's help file about that. I don't run the thing myself so I can't look myself.
