Can you fix this?
« on: May 03, 2019, 03:10:12 pm »

I created a Zerg-type race (using antmen as a template) but I need help making it actually work (I suck at raw editing). I used a few bits from other mods but I really just want this for myself (even if I wanted to upload it to (insert some DF mod website), IDK how).

Looks like you have a lot going on here. What's going wrong specifically?

The base creature from antmen/etc. should work fine; chitin tissue layering, insect body parts, etc... Try to get that working first without the fancy corrosion tissues and see if that works in arena tests.

Well, for one, it is HUMANOID_NECK_4ARMS (in the DRONE caste). Secondly you are defining castes and not giving them any bodies (I'm guessing that is what is causing the crash). Either remove the queen and swarmlord and soldier, or give them bodies. The drone also doesn't have a grasping part, so it can't use the punch attack

I was trying to give each caste a different attack list. Also, I was planning to give them bodies, just haven't gotten to it yet.

Then you need to put the attacks in the castes themselves, right now they are being applied to all of them. If you want to just test things out, give soldiers, queens, and swarmlords the same body as worker or drone for now or just remove the castes without bodies.

You also seem to be selecting the castes individually (WORKER and DRONE) then selecting all the castes, then selecting castes individually again.

I would suggest starting over from the ant raws and just adding or changing one or two things at a time.
