Pony Mod: My Little Fortress
« on: March 21, 2011, 04:32:28 pm »

Version 1.71

Adds a new creature, the Little Pony, with six castes, Earth, Pegasus and Unicorn in both genders, and a playable pony civilisation. Also changes meal names to cupcakes, muffins and baked bads, adds five pony armour items, a topiary toy and a birds nest(just a renamed nesting box, really), and adds four hundred and forty one different stripe patterns for use in pony hair. Ponies have a grasping mouth, are much larger than dwarves and have higher than average creativity, endurance and empathy.

Caste differences:
 Earth ponies are closer to nature and thus gain skill in most farming related and some other nature-related jobs 30% quicker than others, at the expense of learning delicate crafting skills, leadership and admin skills 20% slower.
 Unicorn ponies have a grasping horn in addition to the standard grasping mouth and the opposite skill changes to earth ponies.
 Pegasuses... Pegasi... Pegasodes..? The pretty, flying ponies, have the FLIER tag, which apparently does nothing, learn dodging 60% faster than all other ponies and have been made 20% cooler and faster with a base speed of 777, though this is balanced by making them 10% slower at learning many skills.

Earth ponies learn these skills faster: MINING, WOODCUTTING, ANIMALTRAIN, ANIMALCARE, BUTCHER, BREWING, MILLING, PROCESSPLANTS, MILK, COOK, PLANT, HERBALISM, FORGE_FURNITURE, CUTGEM, WOODCRAFT, STONECRAFT, LEATHERWORK, SHEARING, POTTERY, PRESSING, BEEKEEPING.

Unicorn ponies learn these skills faster: GLAZING, SPINNING, BONECARVE, MECHANICS, DESIGNBUILDING, DIAGNOSE, SURGERY, ORGANIZATION, RECORD_KEEPING, METALCRAFT, GLASSMAKER, ENCRUSTGEM, FORGE_WEAPON, CLOTHESMAKING, TANNER, WEAVING, CARPENTRY, DETAILSTONE, MASONRY, CHEESEMAKING, LEADERSHIP.

Aside from regular ponies, there are also zebras, cave ponies, evil diomedian ponies, buffalo, lions(manticores, griffons and sphinxes) and the combo-platter rainbow ponies, each one distinct. Parasprites, animal ponies, tanks(herbivorous reptiles with blue skin and rainbow shells), jays of many colours, apple, citrus and banana ents, the ability to paint wood and make bread and cake, and umbrella hats.

I'm already shaking my head and saying "this is so wrong," as I smile and download it out of morbid curiosity.

Just warn me in advance: Will I be vomiting sugar?

Cat meat and dwarven sugar cupcakes, maybe. But given their size and weight relative to dorfs and such, ponies tend to be pretty brutal in battle. I once embarked on a terrifying site and I had no trouble sending green wrestling ponies out to kill ogres. So they're great for gruesome embarks. They just giggle at the ghosties.

It's not all that complex, it should be easy to downgrade it a little way. Which version do you use?

Yeah, a little bit of play time, and these ponies kick ass. I'd almost say this is the opposite of Kobold Camp, while that one's a fair bit harder due to being smaller and weaker than most things, this is more like an "easy mode," at least until you get a more balanced evil civ in.

I was thinking a dark pony civ. Ogre ponies instead of earth, vampire ponies instead of pegasi, and unitentacles instead of unicorns, that sort of thing. And/or a dragon civ, maybe, since there's support for the idea in MLP lore. Did I just say "MLP lore"? Goddammit, /co/, you've made me slightly gayer!

Why do the unicorns have prehensile horns?

Do the pegasi have wings?

You were confused about the plural form of pegasus. The correct answer is that there is no plural form because Pegasus was a specific horse.

If you want to make one up, it's Latin, so most likely pegasi.

This. The same actually should be for cyclops (cyclopi) since it was a specific mythology name and collossi (comes straight from latin).

 Unicorns in MLP:FiM have telekinetic abilities, and their horns glow when they do it. Making the horn prehensile is just a kludge to represent that. Pega-whatsits do have wings, and the wings have their colours individually defined, like how the toys tend to have wings in a darker colour. Or at least the G3's I got a crate full of off of eBay do.
 I was under the impression that Pegasus was a Greek legend, so he'd have a Greek plural like octopus-> octopodes. I know enough about Latin to say that it's not a matter of making it up, there are firmly defined declension and the plural is linked to the singular form, and you've assumed that his name would be second declension rather than fourth, which you can't tell without a genitive(It's a safe bet, mind). It could even be an irregular third declension noun. But yes, pegasi is the most likely plural, I was just acting derpy for lulz.

so staring at their horns will reveal glowing digits then nothing at all due to being blinded by glowing light.
dang if I wasn't too busy messing around in DFmode Forts I would so code a silly mount code in Dfusion and allow any one to ride one (though you might be caught not having any control of the beast). though I can see problems with the flying ones and the off chance of death by falling.

Holy crap. Not only was I just working on the exact same thing, it looks like you went about it in almost the exact same way I did. Well, except that yours works. :p

I was going to go one step further and outright forbid the hunting profession, along with the normal kitchen, and invent a custom "vegetarian" kitchen for them. Supposedly they're all herbivores, so they shouldn't be chowing down on puppy burgers.

Also, shoulda called it Slaves to Celestia: My Little Fortress.

I have to say it.

Has anybody travestied the RAWs for this mod yet? I can only imagine the possibilities!
