Very Simple Mod Noob Question
« on: March 13, 2013, 12:46:18 pm »

Hi. I recently decided to try my hand at modding. So, as my first task I settled for something simple, just a simple edit of an already existing creature. This was going fine, I ended up modding ravens that shoot webs and are hostile towards dwarves. The main problem with this was that I wanted to breed said creature without the hassle of eggs. How would I get ravens to give birth? Also, the ravens are producing a load of webs, how would I make it so only a few webs are created? Any tips that can be given would be helpful as well, as I am completely new to this type of thing. Thanks!

1) Remove egg materials, LAYS_EGGS and egg-related stuff under it from females.
2) Make bigger cooldown between web shooting.

If you're aiming for real FUN then copy the fire-jet attack from fire imps and give it to the ravens... Everything will burn... EVERYTHING...
