Anyone done any modding to the shape descriptor?
« on: March 05, 2009, 03:45:32 am »

Not sure I understand what this does entirely, but if it does what I think, it comes into play with engravings and a few other things (artifacts?).

The current file is varied, but pretty mundane, so I got the bright idea to start adding in new entries. I added in helix/helixes, and then hit a brick wall about other things to add.

Anyone modded theirs? If so, what did you add?

There was a mod with a ton of new shape descriptors a while ago, can't remember who put it together tho. I'll post what I have.

::edit:: Dammit, I've just got the vanilla shapes, sorry  :-\

Want to post what you've got? I'd appreciate it.

Umiman's It's the small things has some new shape descriptors.

I think it's a vastly amusing thought that elephants are so afraid of heights that when Dwarves invented the Z-axis, they couldn't bear to face dwarves in combat anymore.

I added skulls once upon a time. Adjectives were human, goblinoid, animal, and draconic.  Ended up fitting nicely, but I don't have the raws anymore.

Others that might work is Fruit (tropical, large, bundles of) or Rivers (Flowing, carp infested, bloody, frozen).

I haven't got anything, yet :P

Was kinda why I posted in the first place. I'll keep looking around and adding things I find interesting. If I get a bunch of stuff together, I'll post an update here.

Awesome, thanks. Checking this out ^^ EDIT: Here is 'the small things' shape descriptor file for anyone interested who doesn't want to download the mod:

Good ideas. In order to use the [ADJ:something], does it need to have a [WORD:something]?

Except for the fact that none of that is Vista's fault...

As far as actually staying on topic, Umiman's small things mod is really the best, as described already.
And on another note, I think shapes are one of the few things you can add without generating a new world.  I think.  Somebody care to try it?  As I mentioned in another topic, I'm in the middle of a special-ruleset fortress - absolutely no modding once game has started being one of them.
