Unicorn Modding Help
« on: December 22, 2009, 09:35:23 pm »

I'm trying to set up a unicorn breeding program in my fortress.
I don't believe this code works, but my fortress may need a season to have babies.
I added or changed the stuff at the end
Code: [Select]
[CREATURE:UNICORN]
[NAME:unicorn:unicorns:unicorn]
[TILE:'U'][COLOR:7:0:1]
[MODVALUE:10]
[PETVALUE:1000]
[LARGE_ROAMING]
[GENPOWER:4]
[BENIGN][MEANDERER]
[BODY:QUADRUPED:TAIL:2EYES:2EARS:NOSE:2LUNGS:HEART:GUTS:ORGANS:THROAT:NECK:SPINE:BRAIN:HEAD_HORN:MOUTH]
[BODYGLOSS:HOOF][MOUNT]
[POPULATION_NUMBER:15:30]
[CLUSTER_NUMBER:3:7]
[SIZE:9]
[ATTACK:MAIN:BYTOKEN:HEAD_HORN:stab:stabs:1:6:PIERCE][ATTACKFLAG_WITH]
[ATTACK:SECOND:BYTYPE:STANCE:kick:kicks:1:2:BLUDGEON][ATTACKFLAG_WITH]
[FAT:10]
[DIURNAL][GOOD]
[BIOME:FOREST_TAIGA]
[BIOME:ANY_TEMPERATE_FOREST]
[BIOME:ANY_TROPICAL_FOREST]
[BIOME:SHRUBLAND_TEMPERATE]
[BIOME:SHRUBLAND_TROPICAL]
[STANDARD_FLESH]
[HOMEOTHERM:10067]
[LAYERING:100]
[SWIMS_INNATE][SWIM_SPEED:2500]

[PREFSTRING:beauty]
[PET_EXOTIC]
[CHILD:1][CHILDNAME:unicorn foal:unicorn foals]
[LITTERSIZE:1:2]

So, what did I screw up? :-\

hahahaha,

seems when it comes to creature modding there are not alot of people that comment.
Creature pregnancy lasts more than a season. around a year i think?!
Enjoy your first creature mod.

I made evlen slaves and a few other creatures.

Why would you breed elves? Why would you want more elves around? Eugh.

Hehe.

I know the Dark Dwarves mod allows for butcherable sentient pets.

I did it to butcher, torture and kill them.
I did the same for dwarves and humans.

I did not know the dark dwarves mod did the same.
Hmmm, i wonder how they did it.

They're sentient, but not like the vanilla races are. They've had CAN_SPEAK removed to force war and make it easy to tame them.

As I've said in the past, I have been able to tame the children of invaders, born caged. Chances are you won't be able to tame civvers directly regardless of whether they have the "intelligent" tags beyond CAN_CIV (CAN_SPEAK/CAN_LEARN/INTELLIGENT) or not.

Creating truly intelligent slaves takes a little bit of work and a highly precise tag setup.

Ah, i know that route of can_speak.
Don't like it at all.

I created clone pets of the races.
I only modded them a little to make them more profitable and usable.
This model is one of my favorite ones.

And here is my Cave trolls i use alot.

The nice thing about this game is that we all have our own likes and dislikes and can mod the game as we see fit.
