Modded Entities, Good & Evil Biomes
« on: August 22, 2015, 03:03:41 pm »

Sorry, was unable to find this by searching:

what determines whether a custom modded entity will settle in good/evil biomes in addition to / instead of neutral ones? (I mean actually settle there, not just have access to animals/plants/wood)

How do you tell the difference between a bug and a complex way game mechanics naturally resolve?

Are you sure having good/evil materials available doesn't automatically let them settle there? I don't see any tags that look like they could do that in particular. I might need to experiment a little.

Edit: I moved the good material tags from the elves to the humans, and the humans settled all over a good region on the map. It's probably that.

Thanks for the help! :).

Did you test it and find out that it's creature tags? What I mean is that I moved the [USE_GOOD_ANIMALS] [USE_GOOD_PLANTS] [USE_GOOD_WOOD] tags from the elf entity to the human entity and found humans in a good biome.

Yeah, I misread at first, which is why I edited my post -- but didn't edit it quickly enough, apparently :). your second post crossed with my edit.
