How can I get more XP by killing my own creatures in KI and KII? For example why you gain 1200 xp for killing Terantatek in KI and gain only 250 xp by killing rakghoules? How to set manually XP gained by killing creature. I tried to attach my script to OnDeath event of creature, but it is stupid because of pauses. For example I gain 700 XP by killing one of my creatures on the third level and 50 on the fiftith level (I know that I can edit exptable.2da but it will not what I mean). So, who can help me???

The math involved in this is hardcoded. The higher your level the less experience you will get for killing a weenie monster. This is part of the D20 system while different ratio's can be adjusted in various tables the math involved in comparing player level vs monster level to determine experience reward is hardcoded. Of course I'm of the permanent school of thought that you shouldn't be rewarded for weenie monsters and I for one am glad that this aspect is hardcoded. If you want more experience create new areas, quests, and encounters with higher level monsters and enemies to actually give yourself a deserving challenge.

What is your characters level? It might be that the engine is fail safed to ignore monster levels over 50th level. Or there may be something else in the monsters utc that is not set correctly for the monster to be counted as a challenge. I can't recall if the utc files have a challenge rating field but if they do that is what will factor directly into the experience calculated.

My character has only third level (now 23). I will try changing challenge rating from 4 to 6 and then will say you my results.

The challenge rating will be what determines the monsters XP award then if you can see a field titled as such. I couldn't recall if the game used the monsters level or if it had a challenge rating field. The math that the engine uses will be calculated upon comparing your level to the challenge rating of the monster since that field does exist.
