Should ents build structures? I doubt it. Use TREE_CITY as their entity site type to get rid of them.

Also, VBASE. It will ensure that your stuff is compatible with everything else, and will cut down on file size (vastly, in some cases) and editing time to some degree. If you're not interested in using it right now, then I suggest you try getting used to it once you've gotten a handle on modding basics.

To be honest, I kinda thought I had. These Ents are nowhere near finished. Also, thanks for the tip, I'll check out vbase after I've tinkered with the Ents a bit.

Also, now that I think about it, didn't Treebeard have a hut/house of some sort? I'll have to check that sometime. Either way, I'm probably going with TREE_CITY for them.

in my experience, creatures made of non flesh materials are extremely brittle. I tried to make a slade golem once, it was bitten in half by a puppy. I'm not sure how the bronze colossus manages...

It depends. I just made a creature with a primary material based on muscle, and it proved indestructible (Literally. I had given it no heatdam/colddam point, tried attacking it with a Grandmaster Hammerer BC with a slade maul, and couldn't dend it) all because of me giving the tissue def THICKENS_ON_STRENGTH. I took that out, and it worked fine.

You can look into my old Middle-Earth mod for the ideas on critters and races. It's great to see this in the works :).

How many mods have you made?!

You need to be like, promoted, or something.

Well if you remove the [MULTIPLE_LITTER_RARE] tag from dwarves I think they have like 2-4 children each time they give birth. And if you get enough mothers up on the pillars you can probably get a good waterfall going.

Awww man. Linking me to that was a mistake.

Also, I'll let you guys know how I end up making Ents not fight like styrofoam.

On the list for today:
Make the Dev list coherent
Continue working on Ents
Flora Re-write
Testing and probably tweaking Wargs (although, wargs might be changed later into more of an "evil mount" than the demon wolf they are now)
Make the Dev list coherent. That's a biggie.
Hobbitses!
Slight weapon tweaking (NOT the weapon re-write, that'll come in later)
Elf Re-write

I'll probably get started on the Flora Re-write first, mainly because it won't be that hard but will have a big affect on immersion. At least, it will for me, and I'm making it, so that's all that counts. After that, Ents, and once they're in some form of working order, I'll jump into the Dev List Overhaul. Everything else is susceptible to getting pushed back.

I'll be stealing like.... most of that.

Hmmm.... well, making these Ents work is tricky, but I think I might have got it. As they are now, they're essentially "Copper Colossuses", which had some interesting results. First off, unarmed attacks seem to be next to impossible to hit them. This means they cannot kill each other, which I guess is good. Ents aren't very murderous. Secondly, they're not too tough, but they're also unkillable. Four unarmed dwarves were completely crushed by a pair of Ents. One dwarf with no armor, skills set at grandmaster and a blue-metal axe was unable to do much of anything before an Ent crushed his head. One dwarf, in steel armor, with skills at talented, managed to get most of them into cyan before dying.

At this point, an Ent is fairly even matched against 5 Ironclad Gobblins, with the exception that Ents are now unkillable. I'm working on that last bit.

Wait what. That's 38c or 39c man ;). Don't joke like that.

And the concept belongs to Tolkien.

Ugh. I'm officially giving up on Ents for now, and moving on to the Flora Re-write. I can get one to die, but it takes a Bronze Colossus 5 minutes to do it.

try giving them a low heatdam point and adding flaming spells/arrows.
