How will this mod fare when toady updates DF next month? Just overhaul or copy-paste?

Jee wilikers, I think Highmax is near invulnerable, must have been dunked in the river styx like achilles was.
Just make sure he wears a boot.

Don't know really, I haven't looked into the changes that will be made to how the RAWs are arranged so I don't know what I'll need to change, if anything.

The mod is still small though, so it shouldn't take me too long to update it for the new version if it turns out to not work.

There once was a dwarf in a cave,
who many would consider brave.
With a head like a block
he went out for a sock,
his ass I won't bother to save.

Is this still being updated, or has it fallen by the wayside?

Poking my head in here wondering if this will be updated for the recent version of DF or if someone is willing to pick up the mod and do so (I would offer to do so, but I don't know how to mod, let alone update an existing mod)

I know this mod is probably abandoned, but I really liked this mod a lot and hope it gets updated. I feel that the recent changes to DF are PERFECT for this mod

I'd quite like to see it, too. Norse mythology and DF just seem to go together.

Who knows, maybe something can be done with this mod (not by me, I've already got a bunch of projects

I'm debating learning how to mod DF just to pick up the torch if I have to. I'm learning more and more about coding, so this shouldn't be too hard, but I don't wanna pick this up and mess everything up cause I don't know how to update mods or properly makes things work

It doesn't seem TOO hard, but I've been known to underestimate tasks

If I do pick it up, I won't be able to work on it until classes are done for the semester and even after that, it would be spotty when the next one comes up. At least it'll look good on a portfolio since I'm working to be in game development

Other than the wiki section on modding, got anywhere a newbie can look to learn? As I said, I have SOME coding experience, so maybe in my free time (aka, when I'm on my lunch breaks at work) I'll give it a gloss over

Use the notes in the dwarf raws for creatures and the wiki. Copy an entity from entity.txt and tweak for a new entity.
It's not coding. If you can read English, you can mod dwarf fortress.

Look, I was asking for places other than the wiki cause I have no idea where to start and while the wiki is a good reference, its not exactly good for learning. If you wanna be rude, go tell off someone who ISN'T thinking about working on this

Example/help threads, I dunno. If I was an expert at finding out how to learn to mod, I wouldn't have asked

In the dwarf raws (raw/objects/creature_standard.txt, that's your hard drive, not the wiki) there are notes included by Toady (in English) on exactly what everything does. Combined with the wiki that's everything you need to know to make a new creature.

You can also ask questions on this forum. I wasn't being rude. it is actually written in actual English, not code. Unless you start using Dfhack (not needed for most normal modding) there is no coding. There is no better resource than the wiki and the instructions written in the raws themselves.

You'll need a text editor. Notepad should work OK. Notepad++ is recommended by some as a good alternative.

I'll second Shonai's advice. He really wasn't being sarcastic. I learned how to mod pretty much exactly as he describes.

I'd like to add that merging mods is also good practice. It works, but usually only after a bit of editing to get all the pieces working together without bugs. It also forces you to look closely at how mods of various quality are made.
