Vermin Eggs
« on: March 07, 2011, 02:37:19 am »

I am trying to make chickens lay bees as eggs. So far it  only produces a single "Tame Small Creature" when a hen lays bees.
I replaced the [LAYS_EGGS] and egg material tags with [LAYs_UNUSUAL_EGGS:PET:HONEY_BEE:NONE:NONE]

Honeybees occur in swarms of like 10k, so you'd probably need to change the clutch size to something like 10000:12000 to get a swarm of bees, but at the same time it might create 10k individual, unique, pathfinding bees that will rape your FPS.  You've been warned.

I just imagined a poor hen squinting in pain as 10,000 live and quite angry bees fly out of its orifice.

Oh god... my brain.

Lol, internet noob.  Just remember, that these are considered "eggs" so it doesn't come out of the anus...

I didn't say anus. I said orifice.

Except that chickens only have one hole that they excrete(and lay eggs) from.

Ok why would you want chickens to lay bees when you could make bees that lay chickens?

They're nearly as bad as badgers. Build a couple of anti-buzzard SAM sites marksdwarf towers and your fortress will look like Baghdad in 2003 from all the aerial bolt spam. You waste a lot of ammo and everything is covered in unslightly exploded buzzard bits and broken bolts.

Sigged, that's just... what.

Have you been able to produce bees by reaction? That'll give you the correct format for the product at least.

Honestly at the time, I didn't see what could go wrong with crowding 80 military Dwarves into a small room with a necromancer for the purpose of making bacon.

PET:NONE:HONEY_BEE:NONE would be what you use in a reaction. Or better yet, VERMIN instead of PET to make them wild bees.

The unusual egg tag is LAYS_UNUSUAL_EGGS:(item):(item subtype)

It wont read the 3rd part that defines which sort of vermin the game should use.

Maybe try [LAYS_UNUSUAL_EGGS:VERMIN:NONE][EGG_MATERIAL:HONEY_BEE:NONE]?

That is incorrect - the syntax is [LAYS_UNUSUAL_EGGS:item:material], where "item" is an item+subtype (e.g. WEAPON:ITEM_WEAPON_WHIP, THRONE:NONE, or VERMIN:NONE) and "material" is whatever the object is made of (e.g. INORGANIC:IRON, CREATURE_MAT:CAT:LEATHER, or "CREATURE_NAME:NONE" if you happen to be creating a vermin).

I just modded chickens to use [LAYS_UNUSUAL_EGGS:VERMIN:NONE:SPIDER_CAVE:NONE], and they did indeed leave live cave spiders in their nest boxes, but once I deconstructed them, the spiders immediately ran away at hyper speed and didn't seem to leave any webs behind, so creating vermin as items presumably doesn't initialize all of their properties correctly.

P.S. If you don't get this note, let me know and I'll write you another.
It's amazing how dwarves can make a stack of bones completely waterproof and magmaproof.
It's amazing how they can make an entire floodgate out of the bones of 2 cats.
