Magic Spells Framework - A Mod for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (WiiU)

WIP Spell package for BotW

THIS MOD IS OBSOLETE. https://gamebanana.com/mods/325462 has much more to offer, and is in active development. I've also got my own channel in the discord! feel free to come over and give me feedback and suggestions!



Well, hello everyone. I recently helped with the creation of a magical sword- it was real popular, so I decided to run with the idea. It wasn't long before I realized - you know what we have plenty of?

Sword mods.

You know what we don't have many of?

Magic mods.

So, I started plugging away, and literally 48 hours later this is what I've done. This mod adds in 12 working spells, scattered across the great plateau right now for testing purposes.

Right now, there are:

3 Pyro Spells
2 Cryo Spells
1 Deo Spell
3 Electro Spells
3 Wind Spells (1 of them is broken as of right now.)

The spells have varying range, and I did my best to make the effects unique enough that they're justified in game.

This is very WIP,  and I have TONS of ideas for new spells I can add, using dungeon items, enemy magic effects, and some good old toolbox trickery, I have 28 more spells that are currently in development and even more that I need more experience before I make.  These weapons are going to have custom effects, parameters, and will even add new elements into the game such as Hydro, Geo, and Dendro spells.

I hope, eventually, to be able to make entirely new systems, including familiars, summoned followers, and potentially Ganon style corruption spells. The items are infinite for now, for testing purposes, just so you can play around with them. Eventually, I want to add the items to the Cherry and adjust them to have a relatively low durability so that they aren't god items and you have to consider which ones you want and how to use them.

This mod is a huge undertaking, but after just two days, I've been able to make this much progress. Keep an eye out for updates, because I'm probably working on it as you read this.

So what else is there to say?  Cheat sheet is included with the zip file.

Fire spells: can be found in the skulls and by the cave with the bees in it.
Ice spells: can be found in the snowy mountains.
Wind Spells: can be found in random areas around the plateau. over the bog, explodable rocks under shrine of resurrection, and I forget the third one.
Thunder spells: can be found by the magnesis shrine in the chests.

    Oh man, this is exciting! I know you have tons of items on your priority list for this, but if you could consider a separate Zelda II spell pack, I'd probably have to make a trip to your town and buy you a couple rounds of beers, LOL!!! Seriously though, I'd be more than happy to throw a couple of US dollars your way if you have a Patreon or something.

    This looks very promising!

    Since the items are weapons and break after use would you consider making them into runes or scrolls instead?  To me spells are something you learn and runes and scrolls something you use up. 

    I'd be happy to help with the models if you like my suggestion.
