Adding Purring Maggots
« on: February 03, 2008, 10:46:00 pm »

I'd like to add Purring Maggots to the list of creatures I may purchase before embarking. Anyone have any idea how to do it?

Can't you just copy the purring maggot info into the creature_domestic file?

No, you add the [COMMON_DOMESTIC] flag to the purring maggot's profile.

You're probably going to end up with quite a few problems getting them.  You may need to try and make a new type of milkable vermin that occurs in standard enivrons, not just the chasms.

And even so, the embark screen may not show them.  Check the item list instead of the creature list if that's the case, it may be listed as an object instead of a living creature.


If you get them, however, please report back.  I'd like to have a few of those dwarven milkmaggots as well.

Also, does anyone know how you trap them in this version?  Do you have to dig down to the bottom "chasm" tile, or can you place a trap on one of the levels above?

I doubt this will work for one reason:  Purring maggots are vermin.  Vermin don't act like ordinary creatures.

Make a Giant Purring Maggot. Make it [MILKABLE]. Make it purchasable. Problem solved.

Won't work. You can only milk vermin.

The solution is obvious.

Rat milk.

Anyone know if [MILKABLE] requires you to run worldgen?
