[.44.10 - .44.12] Kobold Kamp (now with 25% more kefir)
« on: March 17, 2016, 03:03:55 am »

Yet another take on Kobold Camp? It would've been easier if I'd copy-pasted from more official attempts at KC.

Additional thanks to Flint for a certain idea leading to simple lockbows.

To install this mod:
1. Create a backup of the Raw folder that DF has. Just in case.
2. Replace the unmodded Raw folder with the folder provided alongside this text file.
2a: Alternatively, if you want to use graphics packs, replace the Objects sub-folder, while leaving the Graphics sub-folder untouched.
3. Generate a new world and boom, happy bolding.

Current version for .44.10, .44.11 and .44.12: http://dffd.bay12games.com/file.php?id=13731

Prior Versions:

Changes from .44.09 Kobold Kamp: Just the usual imported raw changes.

Latest changes as of June 24, 2018: Confirmed compatibility with .44.11 and ported over minor raw changes.

Notable features of the mod:
* A take on Kobold Camp that's in-between their development level in-game, and the surface-restricted version as seen in traditional Kobold Camp. More stone-age, essentially.
* Useful animal products uncommon in other mods, such as use of haircloth or fermented milk drinks.
* Ability to take armor looted from enemies, and convert it into a kobold-sized equivalent.

Important Pointer Before You Start: Not all stones are usable for stone weapons. Double-check the stone screen for a quick rundown and what you can use.

Features:

Known bugs and issues:
1. No ability to salvage gauntlets. This is due to the infamous gauntlet bug, interfering with any custom reaction that outputs glove-type items. Any output would be generic "ambidextrous" gauntlets instead of left/right versions, and these generic versions can't be worn.

2. Not all of the modded-in reactions can use the "product details" option that allows producing only a specific item. Currently only wood and bone items allow it. For stone arrows or other added reactions you'll have to control desired material the old-fashioned way, using nearest or linked stockpiles.

3. Minor: Knapped stones will appear on the available materials list for finished goods, furniture, and weapon stockpiles, as well as in military uniform material selection. These materials only show up when crafting stone or gem ammuniton, or for embark/trade native metal goods, due to workarounds needed to allow stone ammo to stockpile, and due to more severe bugs that occur if I used a different workaround.

4. Choosing "play now" will bypass the normal lack of access to metalsmithing due to the hardcoded skill assignment to the starting seven. Who even picks "play now" anyway?

You can copy the script "autofixhandedness" from Masterworks hack/scripts folder to fix the gloves problem. I have not tested it in the latest DF version, but it should still work.

As I'm aware of, yes. As with Adventurecraft, I'd prefer to keep the mod such that the user doesn't have to use DFHack, but given I have two released mods that could benefit from it, I might be tempted to include it for optional use. ._.

I'd just add the script to the download and let people know that if they have dfhack, they can drag and drop it.

Ah, might be a good way to go about it.

Sadly not, at least due to overlap in certain files being edited. Though if I separated the recipes into files separate reactions instead of reaction_other, ported over body material upgrades to Kobold Kamp, and made the entity changes consistent...

Noice.
As mugs were mentioned, I assume kobolds can have proper taverns going? What about libraries / book industry?

Taverns, yes. For even more Fun, so far I've found that visitors will arrive, even though they're coming from civilizations that would normally be hostile, and I've yet to get an actual kobold native tavern visitor.

Temples also work, but since kobolds lack religion tokens they can't be dedicated to specific gods, and citizens just spend time meditating on values.

Libraries TECHNICALLY work, but the reactions and tool tokens for papermaking and boodbinding weren't given to kobolds, so you'd have to rely on stolen books and writing material. Which would be unlikely as you wouldn't get caravans from literate civilizations, so aside from the odd visitor or invader bringing books...

Gonna run a camp, any suggestions for a good graphic set to use for bolds?
Old-time classics like Ironhand, Mayday and Phoebus all have like 10 tiles of kobolds instead of proper set. I know Burned has kobolds, but everything else looks like vanilla.

No idea what I'd suggest in that suggest, DF seems to be literally the only roguelike where I find the default ASCII-ish tileset to be easier to make sense of than something more graphcs-based. ;w;

So other than my default caveat of Step 2a in handling the raw folder, I have no useful advice regarding graphics.

And now that I nudged a few updates out of the way, I'm wondering...to mechanics, or not to mechanics.

No, don't. The lower the tech, the more different and challenging it is, the exact reason original Kobold Camp was awesome.

True. Plus I've yet to test the hatch method, which might deter building destroyers.

Well, since I've got a little version of the tileset anyways I figured I'd see if I could make a suitable petite soldier tile for ya, I've got the xcf so I can do the regular dorfs too but I figured I'd see how it looks and contrast it with the dorfletter concept I was trying to work it with.
