Ty.  How do you make a not-graspy tentacle capable of attack?  The only error left (besides him not wanting to stand) is him not being able to whip/bludgeon with a tentacle. . .

He will not attack this way. . . is it the grasp reference?

No, it's the way you selected the attack. CHILD_TISSUE_LAYER_GROUP means you're looking for a tissue to attack with, not a body part. You want BP:BY_CATEGORY:TENTACLE.

I am attempting to mod in a body part, A relatively simple one. One that attaches to the abdomen (lower body) of the creature. But I can't find a part to use as a placeholder, I only want the creature to have one head, and I can't use a third hand/foot...


-EDIT- On second thought... How do you add a third foot? Is there only left and right feet?

-EDIT2- On third thought, Can there be three feet? Or is it only possible to have four/two at a time?

-FINAL EDIT- Nevermind, I found a replacement.

All you need is to have the part have CON_CAT:LOWERBODY.

Third feet are possible, just make a single part with STANCE.

Can you add an exotic weapon to the native weapons list so dwarves can make their own?
If so, how is this accomplished?
Can this change take effect in a current world and fortress, or would I need to start over?

Yes.
The WEAPON entity token.
Try it in a current fortress. it shouldn't work, but it might.

It doesn't. The only thing in the entity raws that I've found that can be changed post-world gen and still have an effect is the [PERMITTED_REACTION:XXXX] tokens (and possibly the [PERMITTED_BUILDING:XXXX] and [PERMITTED_JOB:XXXX] tokens, though I haven't tested those specifically).

I've been trying to make a "vanity interaction", meaning an interaction that does nothing... For now.
The Problem is that every time I go to the interaction menu, the interaction is displayed as "Unknown Interaction"
Here is a version of the code.
Code: [Select]
[CAN_DO_INTERACTION:PLACEHOLDER]
[CDI:ADV_NAME:Placeholder]
[CDI:BP_REQUIRED:BY_CATEGORY:HAND]
[CDI:VERB:placeholder:placeholder:placeholder]
[CDI:CAN_BE_MUTUAL]
[CDI:TARGET:A:SELF_ALLOWED]
[CDI:TARGET:B:TOUCHABLE]
[CDI:TARGET_RANGE:B:1]
[CDI:MAX_TARGET_NUMBER:B:1]
[CDI:FREE_ACTION]
[CDI:USAGE_HINT:GREETING]
Also, are questions about DFhack/DFusion Plugins allowed here?

If you ask them we can try to answer them, but you have a much better chance of getting them answered if you ask them in the DFHack thread.

Do you have an actual interaction with the ID of 'PLACEHOLDER'? Elsewise you are calling on a creature being able to do something that doesn't exist. You could simply put a few lines in an 'interaction_X' file to get rid of the error.
Code: [Select]
interaction_X
[OBJECT:INTERACTION]
[INTERACTION:PLACEHOLDER]

Hm, have you considered murder?  It's either that or letting it go.

Is it possible to apply the [MULTIPLY_VALUE:] token only to a creature's eggs? If so, could I have an example or a link to useful info?

Yes, by selecting only the egg materials (which can be seen by looking at the code for the egg) with SELECT_MATERIAL and PLUS_MATERIAL.

I can't seem to make it work, here are my attempts

edit:Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? And yes, I'm making a Golden Goose, which will lay very few eggs at a time. Also, the value is from copying from the Dragon

Hmm. Perhaps try setting their value directly with MATERIAL_VALUE.

Do you mean like this?
Code: [Select]
[EGG_MATERIAL:LOCAL_CREATURE_MAT:EGGSHELL:SOLID][MATERIAL_VALUE:15]
[EGG_MATERIAL:LOCAL_CREATURE_MAT:EGG_WHITE:LIQUID][MATERIAL_VALUE:15]
[EGG_MATERIAL:LOCAL_CREATURE_MAT:EGG_YOLK:LIQUID][MATERIAL_VALUE:15]
edit:because sadly, that didn't work.
