    Some quick comments the current build of your mod:

    - What program are you using to edit the grapics? after looking at the textures folder I noticed that a lot of the grapics have partially erased or transparent areas. Not only this looks bad, but this makes the files unnecesarily big and will slow down the game. If you are going to use parts of the grapics i made, just copy the needed section, save it as a new file, and check that the empty areas are erased completely.

    - About the roof, I would suggest making custom roof textures for every cave shape. Those small squares you are using make it impossible to see what else is inside the cave. Or you can set it so that the cave entraces take you to a separate area.

    - You are using the "box" polygon for the walls, you need to use the rectangle instead.

    It would be better if we disscuss this on the chatroom, send me a pm if you need help connecting to it.

    Well..................ummm....I got a small idea:

    1)When you kill huge dinosaurs,you may able to eat it(but first,you need a firewood,to set up a fire and cook the meat)then eat it....But you cook the meat and you have more than one meat,got like(for huge dinosaurs),lots of meat (or food as well),like 10 or 15 of meat.

    2)A good tool will be a spear:take a firewood,a small rock,and combine them,is a good weapon to kill your enemyes,but it is used to throw,once used,you need to make more.

    -----------------------------------------------------
    These are some ideas,and well,if you want I can do some areas,but you need to put them in the mod.

    um where can i download the mod?
    #
    NOSBoi 11 years ago
    well i mean the creatures follow each other, when they move/attack. Ive tried follow/attack and follow/follow from notrium default but nothing really works to make them move attack together and not split up.

    Anyone who can help me do this please do.....

    The small Ice aliens usually follow the big one


    I am actually bad at major scripting


    ALL HAIL AsdMaster...
    #
    NOSBoi 11 years ago
    Well they pack up now, but once you get near, they attack while the one they follow runs straight at your caves..... annoying


    Any ideas for the mod????

    NOSBoi 11 years ago
    Ok people i need help..... i have a side for a player (5) and a side for a dinosaur (6) i dont want them to be hostile to each other so they are not hostile, but for some reason the dinosaurs of (6) come under player (5)s command...... any help???
    Any ideas would be cool too but 1st i need this problem sorted out!!!!
    #
    Casanova 11 years ago
    open sides.dat and make a separate new entry for the dinosaurs. Put any sides you want them to be hostile to, but do not add the one for the player.

    NOSBoi 11 years ago
    Ok works fine now. Can anybody tell me how you could make a spring type thing to make a trap spring?????
    Thx
    #
    Casanova 11 years ago
    Im not sure what you want to do, but just be aware that creatures cannot interact with plot objects. So you will need to use some static creature that is hostile to everyone and will perform its attack when something gets close.

    Whats the problem if the picture has a white backround in the game...

    Ok trap easy done (still sorta silly not too bad) but what items should make a spring for a trap?????

    Asdmaster means that his pics have a white background in notrium but he does not know why, any help?????

    Thanks...
    #
    Grim Reaper 11 years ago
    The reason you have a white background in a picture is that the pic has a white background instead of a transparent one.
    #
    Casanova 11 years ago
    You want to use a transparent background for all you pictures, wich will be saved preferably using .PNG in 24bit (8bit is smaller but they look ugly).

    For a spring, you can try using something elastic like a liana or some animal sinews.

    Umm, don't you need 32bit images? If I recall correctly, 24bit is the same as 32bit, although without the alpha channel/layer/thingy...

    And without that alpha whatchagonnacallit, you couldn't have transparency...right?

    I have to save it in PNG before sending it to Imageshack?

    What? I thought you were modding or something...

    When hosting in imageshack, use any picture format they support.

    If you want to get rid of the white background, simply paint it in a different colour.

    OR do what I said before, save with a transparent BG in 32bit format, preferably as a .png.

    Edit: One more thing, post general questions (not related to Notrium, modding Notrium or Cormoon) in the Got a question? thread in General Talk.

    If the question IS about:

    Notrium
    - post in Got a question about Notrium? thread

    Modding Notrium

    There is no PNG-32 format. Photoshop only allows saving in either 8 or 24bit, and both allow the use of transaparency. The difference is that 24 bit allows a wider range of colors and a smooth transition in transparency.

    I have to save it in PNG before sending it to Imageshack?

    That depends on what kind of image you are sending him. For creatures and items png looks best and is small, but for big background images JPG will make smaller files.

    There isn't?

    Sorry about the confusion then...

    Btw: Is there a 16bit format for PNG then?

    There isn't, and this is getting off-topic. If you want more info on png, then visit this page: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.atalasoft.com/PNG.aspx">http://www.atalasoft.com/PNG.aspx</a><!-- m -->
