« on: January 19, 2010, 03:45:15 pm »


Features
  • Included tools: StoneSense, Dwarf Companion, Dwarf Therapist.

  • Bosmer (wild elves): they bug you with tree quota and use minor metals... Do they deserve to live?
  • Khajiit: they REALLY like wildlife, like DF elves... But they will bring you warious animals in cages and they won't give a damn about the trees, so they may live for now... right?
  • Orc raiders: like DF goblins, a bit bigger, but that's all.
  • Detailed body: 3-part upperbody and lots of organs, breakable necks and gougable teeth; lots of fun for wrestlers.

This is a pre-release version (0.95).

So far everything should be almost complete and have graphics.

Please test and give your suggestions. I plan to tweak crop growing times (for now all food-producing plants grow for a season or two at least, the farming is harder) for ver. 1.0 and to add more undead for caves.

Also I plan to add dremora as a hostile civ but I am not sure about it, because they didn't have major installation, and definitely no empires on Tamriel.
What do you think about it?

Thank you. Now I think that I forgot the graphics for a spriggan too... But these are minor things which do not require a re-gen so are easily fixable for any fort.

I am interested in two answers: does this mod need Dremora as a hostile civ? Does this mod need Reiklings or are they too specific to northern parts to be skipped?

Dremora shouldnt be their own civilization, they should replace the flame antronochs in the HFS, protecting viens of ebony. (and then a reaction for making the powerful daedra weapons by mixing ebony with skulls or hearts or something )

Reiklings in my mind are a tad bit like the gremlins in DF except live in icier climates.

You are also missing many many of the plants which were in morrowind ;)

Well, the material used for Daedric weapons is supposedly ebony treated with/by the spirit of a lesser Daedra. I can think of a couple of ways you can do something similar. First, and probably less desirable, is to have all lesser daedra drop a stone (like "fire salts") with a particular reaction class on death. The reaction class would then be one reagent for the Daedric-metal producing reaction. The other would be to have the lesser daedra all drop bones, and then have several Daedra-specific Daedric-metal-making reactions using the Daedra bones.



Also, you may be interested in my findings about the Bonemold material. I was checking to see how it might be converted into DF, so I was looking at its stats in Morrowind. I found that Bonemold is ~80% iron's weight, ~160% as effective as iron for weapons (but can only be used for ammo and ranged weapons; bows, arrows, and crossbow bolts only in MW), and ~155% as effective as armor. However, it is as effective as Steel in MW on defense but just slightly better on offense.

*facepalm* I knew I forgot something. Definitely I wanted to replace adamantine with Daedric and make rare deposits of ebony (they shouldn't be in HFS only because I remember ebony mines in a few places in Morrowind... At least I hope those were not unmined HFS :D.

Although a reaction to take daedra bones and mix them with ebony which surrounds HFS to make a dadric metal sounds good.

And bonemold is definitely doable and I will make it, thanks for the suggestion :).

Well I simply put most famous sources of food and drink thus some plants are skipped yet. It doesn't mean I don't want them, I just didn't find a creative way to make them unique yet.

You can already make armour out of both bone and shell and a craft-shop. I don't think anything has to be changed there.

Only wild :). I didn't think that major argonian empire would contribute, because currently we have tree quota on elves and pet trading on khajiit. However it's not hard, especially if someone gives me a good argonians/lizardmen jobs tileset :).

Yes, but without Argonians we don't get lovely folktales about characters called "Lifts-Her-Tail".

And there's no way to call them this way in DF due to the way the languages work... Which is sad.

I will make a modular argonian race later, but I need to make graphics for them before that because I like everything to be consistent.

Also I'm releasing 0.95 in a few minutes. I've made missing graphics for the zombie, netch, spriggan, horker; also I've added reiklings.

You could add in argonians as a small-capacity (probably non-trade), swamp-dwelling society, rather than wandering wildsmen (though as wandering wildsmen, they are cool).

It may be possible to add them in as a race that likes every site type, yet dislikes their default site type (with low civ-gen chance), which would cause them to immediately migrate to other civilizations.

Just a suggestion to be thought on. :P

I will definitely have to test this mod at some point, when I am not so busy working on my own...

I will think about argonians thanks to you... Damn :).

Anyway, 0.95 is out.

+ Reiklings, a babysnatching race active during winter
+ Spider daedra; your HFS will be funnier now
+ Included Stonesense vizualiser has dwemer graphics adjusted (dwarven), also it shows bosmer and dunmer (new tiles) correctly now

* Most graphical tiles are at place, if you find any bugs with graphics, report them here
* Separated telvanni dunmer and redoran dunmer into separate creatures for better identification on the Civilization screen
*Adjusted trading seasons

Wait for me to upload it on DFFD... Done.

0.95 is out!
