Making Giant Olms breedable?
« on: May 20, 2012, 06:48:54 pm »

As elementary as this might sound, I wish to make giant olms able to have children. Thus far the only animal breeding tweaks I have only done are some minor changes like making war trainable goblins (breeding gobbo babies was interesting), so I'm not certain what do do.

Can I just add [LAYS_EGGS], or is it more complicated?

Et tu, Urist

I just have one question:  You will weaponize them or use them as livestock, right?

I can imagine running into a huge colony of these in the caverns, oh how much fun that would be...

Plonk the LAYS_EGGS part inside the female caste brackets, and it should work fine

The child tag is important too, else the eggs won't hatch. but you got that in your quoted text already, so you should be ok :)

If you put LAYS_EGGS on both male and female castes, would both sexes lay eggs?

Thanks, I will try it out later tonight.

..I'm kind of tempted on trying to make egglaying dwarves. "Urist McDwarfy has claimed a nestbox." Imagine sticking a few nestboxes in the meeting hall. (and making +urist egg roasts+).
