Just out of curiosity...
« on: September 16, 2017, 01:22:13 am »

Is it possible to create a creature that exhales live bees? I know that it's probably not possible, but I really want to see if it can be done. If it is possible, how would I do it? If not, how would I achieve a similar effect?

Hmmm... there might be a very hacky way of exhaling vermin, but otherwise you can make it breathe a material named "bees" that applies bee sting effects.

Did you know that cats that have mysteriously disappeared from home can come back after a few months without warning?

TRAILING_ITEM_FLOW will allow exhaling vermin, though they'll be kinda dead obv.

And they won't sting. So, my way is better.

Hmm... maybe we can combine these two ideas to create something truly horrifying? Exhale a bunch of dead bees as well as a gas which reanimates creatures, then you breath zombie bees.

I wonder if this will actually work.

The only problem I can think of with this is that the gas might reanimate the enemy as well. Though I think you can use a syndrome that only works on a specific kind of bee created by the mod.

That's actually kind of cool. A little unnerving, but cool.

Knock yourself out. As someone who ranks his life worth in how many people he entertains, this is something I am not opposed to, to say the least.

My creature crashed the game when I tried to test it in the arena, so I guess there's still work to do. Does having vermin (or vermin remains) in the arena always crash the game or is this something else? Here are the RAWs if you want to look. I'm not finished with them yet, I just wanted to see if getting the creature to exhale dead bees would work.
