    Any summoned earth elemental has roughly a 3 times larger hitbox in all directions than the elemental itself. This is incredibly annoying in fight, because others cannot select the target. I've died to it at least two times. Please, try to fix this they are useful, but in this way, it's kind of a pain.

    Also another problem with summoning a centipede (exterminator's guide + summon III)
    Probably the texture of the centipede is much smaller than the object itself, and it's also useless in that case, and yes, people died to it also.

    If you could fix those two summons somehow, I'll be very happy! 🙂

    This is because they are resized from default.

    The only thing I can do is make them all the same size, unless you know someone who knows how to edit hitboxes because I'm afraid I do not.

    texture of the centipede

    The appearance is set to "Centipede: Small" You can see all 3 sizes (S, M, L) compared to a normal sized human in the image below. As for the texture, unless you know someone who can create/edit creature skins, not sure there's anything I can do except make it bigger, which may or may not fix the problem without creating other issues.

  • Hi!

    Thanks for the answer. But the default size (=huge) has also 3 times larger hitbox. Somehow we should fix it because if you are not in solo, as a conjurer, you are annoying and useless, because others suck because the summons. I can summon other stuff, yeah, but this would be the most useful in many cases 😎
    But if there's no fix I'll try and live with it:D

    The only thing I can think of is to change the appearance of all of them to NWN default and hope that works?
    But there would still need to be resizing done on all of them.



  • Maybe. I don't know much about it. Anything that helps even just a little is good for me! 🙂
    I think resizing was not the problem, because all summons had the same hitbox relative to their sizes. So if the default has a normal hitbox, then the resized ones will have that as well. (I hope at least)



  • Died to it for the 3rd and the 4th time. Please do something 😃

    If you know it's broken why use it until someone says it's been fixed?

    I can summon other stuff

    Do this for now.
