[MODDING] 0.34. QUESTIONS THREAD
« on: February 14, 2012, 09:03:10 am »

I feel like we should start a new thread, with a lot of new features thrown in our face.

My questions:
1) Did anyone manage to make a polymorph spell?

This:
Code: [Select]
[INTERACTION:POLYMORPH]
[I_SOURCE:CREATURE_ACTION]
[I_TARGET:A:CREATURE]
[IT_LOCATION:CONTEXT_CREATURE]
[IT_CANNOT_TARGET_IF_ALREADY_AFFECTED]
[IT_MANUAL_INPUT:target]
[I_EFFECT:ADD_SYNDROME]
[IE_TARGET:A]
[IE_IMMEDIATE]
[IE_ARENA_NAME:transformed]
[CE_BODY_TRANSFORMATION:START:0:END:50]
[CE:CREATURE:BIRD_EAGLE:DEFAULT]
crashes the game.

The crash comes from adding the CE_BODY_TRANSFORMATION there.

2) Did you find out how can you limit a spell to target YOURSELF only?

An interaction targetting yourself has a line about target:self_only or similar.

So how do we polymorph!? :D

I think it's the way towns develop now. In the beginning, people move into a town. Then they start producing tables, which results in more and more tables. Soon tables represent a significant portion of the population, they start lobbying for new laws and regulations, putting people to greater and greater disadvantage...

Check the witcher mod. You can replace the eagle with any creature which has EQUIPS to leave your gear on.

I'm also attempting to see if I can get a god to only curse certain castes/creatures, if it's possible to get other sources rather than passed on and cursed by deity, and if I can get people to turn into a creature and be shunned until they turn back but not hostile. Lovin' these new toys.

What? This worked perfectly fine in 31.25. Is there a change I'm unaware of?

EDIT: There appears to have been. I've fixed it.

Clarify something for me:

We need a tag for were-beast and vampire, etc, candidates, right?
What are the tags? I can't find them in the default creature raws.

Right now only living creatures with CAN_LEARN (or INTELLIGENT) which do not already have a werewolf or a vampire curse are eligible for a werewolf curse.

I'm also attempting to see if I can get a god to only curse certain castes/creatures, if it's possible to get other sources rather than passed on and cursed by deity, and if I can get people to turn into a creature and be shunned until they turn back but not hostile. Lovin' these new toys.
Yes, you can add [IT_AFFECTED_CLASS:*CUSTOM*] to the interaction and then add an appropriate creature class only to a single caste.

Wow, to discover a polymorph ability.. You're a genius, Deon. Now I can satisfy my dream of becoming a giant cave spider when I need to.

Okay, a question because it's nearly 1 AM, I'm tired and just shocked at the shitload of errors the game churned out when I checked how much things broke from the last version of the game where my mod ran fine.

Anyway.

How can I make a self-affecting syndrome/interaction thing to, say, make myself a necromancer or a vampire?  I don't really get the syntax of the new interactions yet.

You can transform creatures into other ones at workshops.
