About this mod

Re-works the Adrenaline and Stamina mechanics. Signs now cost Adrenaline (re-named to "Focus"), and all combat actions now cost Stamina. Combat is a delicate and skillful balance of Focus and Stamina. The more focus you have, the stronger your signs are. The more Stamina you have, the stronger your melee attacks are. Tweaked some skills/abilities.

v1.5
by DrawingDrag0ns


Vigor is part of a modular overhaul series.
You can use each module separately,
but using them together is my personal preference.
Each module can be merged without conflicts using Script merger.

Module 1....... Master Training
Module 2............. Static World
Module 3......................... Vigor
Module 4.. Alchemy Enhanced


"I think I found a bug, should I submit a bug report?"
With the huge success of the Netflix show "The Witcher", a lot of new and/or returning players are deciding to mod their games. This means there are a lot of people who don't know what they're doing, how to troubleshoot their mod issues, or even know better than to install multiple incompatible mods.
This also means that mod authors are getting a lot of false-positive bug reports!

When it comes to Witcher 3 modding, you have to have at least some understanding of what each mod does; if 2 mods edit the same line of code or same XML file, you really should pick one or the other. This game is NOT Skyrim, you can't just chuck a bunch of mods together and have it work.

Before submitting a bug report:
1. Read the mod description page of THIS MOD in it's entirety. Pay close attention to the install instructions, and compatibility notes.
2. Double-check the mod description page of your installed mods, and see if you've installed any mods which are know to be incompatible.
3. Once you have eliminated incompatible mods, you need to deleted your "Merged Scripts" mod folder and re-run Script Merger.
4. If the issue persists after these steps, you then need isolate the issue by uninstalling all other mods.
If you have done all 4 steps, please submit a bug report!

Eh, what do?

Adrenaline Points:
  • Re-named to "Focus Points"
  • Casting signs now use Focus points instead of stamina, allowing the players to cast up to 3 signs in a row.
  • Focus now regenerates over time, much like Stamina. However, passive regeneration is slow. Attacking enemies will replenish Focus points
  • faster, much like the original mechanic.
  • The power of signs will decrease as you spend Focus points. Your first spent Focus points will result in 100% sign power, the second will result in 75% sign power, and the 3 (last) will result in 50% sign power.

Stamina Points:
  • All melee/combat actions now cost Stamina, since signs don't use it anymore.
  • The cost of each action scales with your "Stamina regen" stat. The more regen you have, the less actions will cost.
  • The "delay" before stamina starts regenerating is also effected minimally by your Regen stat.
  • Melee attacks scale with Stamina. The lower your stamina, the less damage fists/swords will do. The thresh-hold for damage deduction beings once you reach 50% of your stamina. Any value below 50% will decrease your melee attack power by 1%. (So, if you have zero stamina, you deal half melee damage).

Abilities:
  • Several abilities have been adjusted to accommodate Focus being the main source of Witcher Signs
  • Bonus stamina regen from Sign skills and Focus bonus from Combat skills have been flip-flopped. Combat skills now give a Stamina Regen Bonus, and Sign Skills now give a Focus Regen bonus.
  • Various potions/mutagens have also been tweaked, along with Runewords/Glyphwords that involve the Focus stat.
  • Please note, only effects which involve the Focus/Stamina stats have been changed, nothing more.

Strings/Descriptions:
  • Mod currently supports English and Spanish strings. Playing the game in other languages may result in confusing tooltips/descriptions. Spanish strings courtesy of Nexus user Deepk!

FAQ:
  • Q) Does this mod have any in-game options? A) No. This mod is a "set it and forget it" mod, zero options.
  • Q) Can this mod be installed onto a pre-existing save? A) Yes!
  • Q) I think I found a bug, but I'm also using mods X Y and Z. Should I submit a bug report?  A) When it comes to Witcher 3 modding, you have to have at least someunderstanding of what each mod does; if 2 mods edit the same line of code or same XML file, you really should pick one or the other. This game is NOT Skyrim, you can't just chuck a bunch of mods together and have it work. Before submitting a bug report, you first need to isolate the issue by uninstalling other mods which may be conflicting. If the issue persists, then yes, by all means please submit a bug report.

COMPATIBILITY

  • NOT compatible with sweeping gameplay overhauls (Ghost Mode, W3EE, or any other "complete overhaul") Generally speaking, those types of mods specifically state that they're not compatible with much. 
  • NOT compatible with other mods which manipulate how player Stamina/Adrenaline works
  • Compatible with all of my other modules, listed above. Give 'em a try!
  • Compatible with texture/mesh and audio mods
  • Compatible with Friendly HUD!
  • Compatible with Immersive Cam!
  • Should be compatible with just about any mod which doesn't edit the same scripts or XML files. Just use Script Merger, and if everything auto-merges, you should be fine. Mileage may vary.
