    OthobRithol 8 years ago
    For Marine corpses, I've decided that they'll drop plot items, which will allow on-pick-up calculation of item drop. It's actually creature corpses (and turret corpses) in general that make up the bulk of my remaining work in items.dat.

    ops: Definitely showing my lack of experience with this system right there (It's only been about two weeks ). I hadn't even thought of using plot objects. Sadly, I can't utilize the triggered effects for what I am doing (since I am taking a normal object and adding a race feature to it).

    I am looking forward to seeing how you do the marine drops, since I am positive it will impact how I am doing turret salvage.

    I'm trying my best to avoid having an android only script for the salvaging items to be triggered, but I just don't know of any other way to do it.

    Temperature Control Upgrades are giving me a pain. I have figured three wasy to run it:

    A - The upgrade gives a token, and a pair of scripts run constantly pushing temperature back towards center. More tokens = more push. I wouldn't be able to model this option until I had a better idea how you were doing health regen tokens.

    B - The upgrade modifies a bar holding # of Temp upgrades (starting at 1.0, with each token reducing it 0.1). A script then uses a simpified version of the multiplication system I outlined to multiply the new bar and the temperature bar. In effect, it is reducing or raising temperature by %.

    C - Six different scripts. Two for the simple upgrade, two for the improved, and two for the final. This has two versions:
    C1 - Each upgrade used turns on its own scripts, which change temperature more dramatically IE Script Pair One activates at +-40 from center, changes by 10; Script Pair Two activates +-60 from center, effects 20 etc.
    C2 - Each upgrade drops a hidden token, and then activates or deactivates scripts based on # of tokens detected. The scripts just get better as you upgrade.

    A would have the advantage of not being limited in total # of upgrades. Therefore, each upgrade could be cheaper and have less effect. I think the player would draw more satisfaction from completing more upgrades - hence every modification I have made thus far.
    B is already done in a test model, but uses a bar (which thus far I have not had to do for anything). Conservation of bars is key to me. But the simplification of having one script modify temperature, instead of one for hot and one for cold, is appealing aesthetically. If I ever make my own Android mod (which I have considered) this is likely how I would do it. For now, I need to share bars with the others
    C is ultimately limited by just how many scripts should be used. 6 is already a bit overboard for the temperature bar of one race.
    C1 has the best overall effect, since the cooling, heating would occur more dramatically the further the temp went from center, but has so many scripts running.
    C2 is a bit of a compromise, with only 2 scripts running at a time to avoid lag. What it saves in CPU cycles, it makes up for in overall code length.


    The weapons pod works like a champ. Restraint is what can and what can not be used in it is a key concern. For fun I made a number of weapons legal, and some (like the warp drill gun and the laser shotgun) generated so much spread push it seemed over-powered. Flamethrowers work alright, but you were right that they don't see much action, even the advanced. Mostly they eat ether. A very wide spread (As in 140 degrees plus) might see some effect, but at that point the Android would be unflankable.

    Stacking multiple lasers and/or guns ate ammo, and made absolutely over-powered effects. I killed several battledroids and very close range with a laser/pulse-laser/laser shotgun/laser rifle weapons pod... without having ANY other upgrades.

    I think the best bet is to have unique weapons pods, with their own combination trees. The key here is to make them work well together.

    I think there should be 5 pods: Sonic, Machine Gun, Laser, Plasma, Cannon. I no longer think a splash weapon is appropriate. That can be used as a normal weapon. All of these weapons would have to be short-range (even a conservative mix of standard weapons has more off screen killing effect then the warp drill gun)

    As a continuum, the left has wide spread, rapid fire, low range, and lower damage. As you move right, they get narrower, slower, but more damaging. In effect you get a cone with an increasingly deadly core.

    Tech and ease of creation wise, they would go Machine Gun/Laser, then Sonic, then Plasma, and finally Cannon. The cannon would just be a very slow firing, heavy physical weapon akin to a rail gun. Depending on how you develop the Plasma weapons, it may not even be necessary.

    Update: I'm pleased to announce I've finished all the technological item entries and descriptions. The descriptions are what's really taking it out of me, since they're easily as much typing as an entire series of combinations. I've also finished all the technological, non-species specific weapons, along with new images for many of them, and am most of the way through the Scavenger, still got a few more weapons to finish off/provide graphics for and I'm done.

    Since I've recently experimented and discovered that combinations can result in multiple different types of item from one combination, I can do what I wanted with devour, for both aliens, and have the various aliens provide different resources as well as their simple food. Brown, for example, will provide toxins, which the aliens will slowly metabolise and remove. Too much poisonous food at once will start hurting the alien, but a limitted amount will be useful for defences and for certain Scavenger weapons.

    Perhaps more later, gotta go.

    A really skillful alien shall be able to eat browns without getting poisoned. Optionally.

    I wish there were fewer occassions when that happened to me in-game.

    Progress held up by health issues (not actually caused by Notrium, fortunately), and some other projects (as well as being sick to death of items.dat), just getting back into the swing of things now.
    #
    E_net4 8 years ago
    Well one thing that should be fixed is the random major creatures spawns. These were implemented in Werivar to make people go away from Notrium quickly, but that ain't fun, because one would rather stay in the planet to evolve and get new stuff.

    well if you are still working on the mod you have a couple gameplay breaking issues... (some outright bugs)

    some of the turrets in the ville corp base are owned by the player

    building the warp drill gun results in an endless flood of infinant hunger reduction specials. (at least for the human)

    the self powered food generator is produceing way to many rations. a buildup of 100+ of them occurs in only 3 days.

    the instant death from snipers and battle droids are completly annoying. a challenge is one thing, but being killed over, and over again without even a warning is no fun at all. another anoyance is the missiles going through walls... that needs to stop too.

    but asside from those issues I'm really loveing your mod. I especially liked the cave... that was pretty awsome running around down there with only a flashlight and low ammo. Which was due to the surface inhabitants...

    edit: you also assigned the factory chip use keys to the shortcut keys for the health restoration items. this means you can't actually use the factory chips if you have the restoration items in your inventory.

    another infanant hunger special problem occurs once you get the power suit.

    I've fixed these issues in my copy, if anyone is still playing this mod give a post I'll upload it somewhere.

    i kinda agree with the boy...i mean it's kinda annoying with the sniper thingy, whenever i got adroid's super upgrade i got 2 hits and died i mean thats abit insane....and the battle droids is the other problem indeed....

    though a really appreciated game keep up the good work 10/10

    The uber-enemies spawning randomly in the game is an issue from Werivar. Sure there's a need to fix that. The android and the human can just use the Warp drill gun, but what about the other races? They need to run like heck!
    #
    bwansy 8 years ago
    I think I said it before. I strongly suspect it's actually the engine's bug, not the mods'. I looked into the scripts and found a block that constrains the max. number of those enemies that can exist in a map, but somehow they're ignored by the engine. It's something like 20 reapers, 5 snipers, 3 battle droids, etc., but I can't remember the exact numbers.

    Seeing as this mod appears dead, I figured I'd post all the work I did on the android upgrades.

    In Player races make the following changes:
    Android starts with items:
    1000
    1010

    Android does not start with items:
    23
    225

    Android cannot drop items:
    1000
    1010
    1012
    1013

    Notes:

    A lot of the upgrades don't function because I was trying to make them compatible with the health tokens Nocturne was working on. You can make them functional by just replacing the effect that gives the token with one that modifies the bar.

    I lost the version that had all of the turret salvage and the weapons pod. Sorry.

    Some of the upgrades have custom gfx I am too lazy to upload.

    #
    bwansy 8 years ago
    Here's something I wrote after playing ver. 0.95. It's written for people who are new (but not quite new) to Werivar Expansion mod, just for fun. Veteran players can read it, too, just in case you haven't tried this before.

    ***

    I am sure most players must be very annoyed by those endlessly-spamming super-enemies (snipers, dire reapers and battledroids) in Werivar and Werivar Expansion which render some areas impassible. Their population should have been restricted by script, but somehow it doesn't work. Although we had the all-mighty, insta-kill warp-drill gun, in the recent versions of Werivar Expansion, namely, v.0.9 onwards, its damage had been reduced significantly. When facing a single Dire Reaper, a dual barrel pistol does way better. So, we're basically back to the good'ol days: being chased by herds of DR or dodging torrents of sniper rounds instead of clearing those severely overpowered enemies in mere seconds. So what to do now? If you can't beat them, play with them! (Don't join them ;P) Let me introduce the Art of Dire Reaper Herding!

    1. Items Required
    What you need is an upgraded hover-bike (the one with pulse laser), for several reasons: it's fast, it has high HP, and you can fire laser indefinitely without draining your energy. A biomass detector, or even better, a powered array detector, is also necessary. It allows you to know exactly where your enemies are which is crucial to the process.

    2. Gathering a Herd
    Alright, let's get going. First, rush towards the herd of Dire Reapers while firing your laser, then, with the help of your detector, drive around the herd. (This surely looks reckless, but don't worry, the bike can survive for about 15 seconds even when it's completely surrounded by DRs. ) This will arouse every one of them, causing them to pursue you.

    3. Driving the Herd
    Now you have control of the herd, you can lead them to wherever you want. But don't just go straight, or you're prone to leave many behind, for they'll lose interest after a while, and also because your bike is much faster than them. Instead, run exactly like a sheepdog, in order to keep every one of them angry. Meanwhile, you can also lead other stray DRs to join the herd. Remember, keep your laser on.

    4. Traveling Across Borders. Now you have reached the border with some 40 DRs behind you. How you make sure that all of them can follow you to the other side? Simple. Stop, and let them surround you. As I mentioned before, you can survive about 15 seconds, so don't worry. Now cross the border.

    5. Clash!
    Now you're in the region infested with snipers and/or battledroids (though DRs are not quite good against battledroids). Lead your herd near them, and when it's close enough fot the DRs to see them while you're still at a safe distance, drive straight towards the them, and go pass them. The DRs will be distracted by snipers while you flee to a safe distance and enjoy the show.

    6. Aftermath
    What will leave behind is a pile of precious sniper and DR corpses. In case you don't know, DR corpses restore 100 health, and sniper corpses give you 20 sniper bullets , which otherwise have to be obtained by the painstaking process of combining them one by one. (I'm not going to spoil how to make them, although almost everyone should know by now) Don't worry about the surviving DRs, they will stay there to clean up snipers that pop out. That's killing three birds with one stone.

    7. Things to remember
    Sometimes a large group of snipers (15 or above) can wipe out a herd of 30 Dire Reapers, so if you see a large group of green dots on the map, better prepare more than 50 DRs.
    Always keep your laser on for maximum efficiency.
    Don't get off the bike at any time or you're dead. You won't have time to take out your warp drill gun.

    ***

    There are some other things that I find annoying as well. I hate it when creatures are spawning in a "wrong" regions, e.g. dire reapers in Eden or battledroids in jungle areas. It completely ruins the feel of these areas. Is there a way to fix this?
    Also, Psionic Blast hurts oneself. Last time I checked, it doesn't in default Notrium.

    Despite these, it's still my favourite mod. If I didn't like it, I wouldn't have bothered to write all these.

    I'm alive, just confronted with some offline concerns, as well as feeling a bit overwhelmed by the enormity of the task I set myself (apparently I am a masochist). I'm still plodding along on the project here and there.

    In the meantime, I'm working on another mini-project, which I may very well end up using the Notrium engine for, and if I do, rest assured I'll put it up here to help tide you over.

    Just started playing again and I had an idea for the Alien character. She could have some sort of scent marker (urine or the equivilent in an alien) that she could spray and leave a dot on the map (similar to a light beacon).

    It would be helpful to mark locations of fires and items you've dropped. It was just an idea, so use it if you want .

    Erm, looking through the plot objects i have noticed something very strange.
    The dire reaper spawner meant to be placed in the map editor has a weird condition.

    Spawner: Dire Reaper;//name---------------------------------------
    158;//identifier
    0;//map type to place to -1=any map 0=> type from areas.dat
    0;//plot_object class
    0;//object definition number
    0;//number of objects to be placed
    0;//location type, 0=random, 1=distance min(parameter1) max(parameter2) from player start, 2=distance min(parameter1) max(parameter2) from object parameter0, 3=coordinates [parameter0, parameter1] (0=min, 1=max) vary location=parameter2
    0.000000;//location parameter0
    0.000000;//location parameter1
    0.000000;//location parameter2
    0;//show on radar 0=does not show, 1=show on scanner, 2=show even without scanner
    20;//particle to shown on radar
    none;//radiate sound
    -1.000000;//time to delete object in milliseconds, -1=don't delete
    4;//trigger event by 0=player click, 1=player near, 2=near or click, 3=map creation (try to avoid any creature specific effects when using this, also does not check conditions), 4=interval parameter1
    20000;//trigger event parameter1
    0;//show help text for conditions
    begin_effects_block;
    none;//event text
    none;//sound, none for nothing
    2;//vanishes after event, 0=no, but cannot be reused, 1=vanishes, 2=no, and can be reused
    begin_conditions;
    8;//condition
    10.000000;//condition parameter0
    0.000000;//condition parameter1
    15;//condition
    500.000000;//condition parameter0
    1.000000;//condition parameter1
    30;//condition
    5.000000;//condition parameter0
    115.000000;//condition parameter1
    end_conditions;
    begin_effects;
    10;//effect number
    115.000000;//parameter1
    2.000000;//parameter2
    -1.000000;//parameter3
    -1.000000;//parameter4
    end_effects;
    end_effects_block;


    Right here:
    30;//condition
    5.000000;//condition parameter0
    115.000000;//condition parameter1

    It checks if there are less than 115 queen brown aliens in the map, is this intentional?

    A few posts back someone mentioned a pulse gun hover bike ( something liek that, I can't find it again though) And I was wondering how I can make it?

    EDIT:

    Never mind: I found out how, see below for info:

    In order to upgrade the hoverbike you must drop a power prism, a robot wreckage, a pulse laser pistol and a enhanced power armor near it, all at the same time.

    I think a double post is necassry for this, as it is a different subject.

    I am playing the mod (obviusly). Anyway I have an inpenatrable base in teh East Hive. I ask two things:
    A) Where do I get the HomeBase Keycard.
    B) How do I built the flamer turret, I found two and would like another please.

    Thanks in advance, Gregg.

    The homebase keycard is:in the marine base.

    Combine an advanced turret base:Omni light + Turret base
    With an advanced flame thrower:Flame thrower + Powered particle accelerator
    Omni light:Glass marble + Light diode

    LOL, thanks I have ariound 25 in total now (3 home made )

    I just got pwned when I decided to go through the hive hunting. My base is in the East hive.
    So, here I was, me and an Android hunting for brown aliens (that reminds me, I need to get the baby egg). When we leave the area for a second to heal. I comeback in and BAM!There was machine gun turrets and those sniper people. I love this thing. It's like, once you have a base and turrets you are fine. Dire reapers are easily killed, but if these guys decided to come to the E hive, I think I would get killed. Me and my team.

    So, I was just wondering, what other cool things are there?
    And do these guys have a story/ reason for been here/ some cool facts stuff?

    Thanks.

    Add a power for the psionic:
    Spatial Displacement
    Effect: makes psionic disappear for as long as item is equipped.
    It's simple, but it can make a big difference in the gameplay.
    Make an item and add a script like this:

    Spatial Displacement Effect;//name
    #Script ID#;//id
    1;//run without calling
    0;//call position
    0;//calling creature
    200;//run every n milliseconds
    none;//message, none for no msg
    0;//message type
    none;//sound, none for nothing
    0;//delay script for n secs after condition met
    0;//disabled after first use
    begin_conditions;
    11;//condition
    #Item ID#.000000;//condition parameter1
    0.000000;//condition parameter2
    end_conditions;
    begin_effects;
    54;//effect number
    200.000000;//parameter1
    0.000000;//parameter2
    0.000000;//parameter3
    0.000000;//parameter4
    end_effects;

    Attach energy requirements as you see fit.

    I'm afraid I've bad news folks.

    Upon returning home from the US to my home nation, which has a 240V power supply instead of the US 100-somethingV supply.

    I, like an idiot, forgot to switch my computer from US-voltage settings to UK-voltage settings, and plugged it in, frying it quite thoroughly. All my mod notes, images, plans, and all the renovations of the .dat files I'd been (slowly) working on are/were on it. I've tried a new PSU to no avail, so there's a very good chance I've lost the harddrive and thusly everything to do with the mod.

    On these grounds, every script, image and the entire mod itself to date are open to anyone who's interested in using them, I might work on it again, but it's not going to be for the foreseeable future (which is a fairly standard notrium mod state unfortunately, sorry about that).

    Where can I find a glass tube? There's no mention of where to find items anywhere in the forums. However, there was one post about someone finding a glass tube in the VC Mining Area, which I believe means the Mining Fields. However, I've been searching everywhere in the field, dying several times in the process, and there's still no glass tube to be found.

    Am I looking in the wrong area?

    No, that's the right area. Just keep looking. It's a curved piece of translucent material, so you might not notice it when you see it.

    Thanks, finally found that glass tube.

    Got a few questions though.

    1. What can take out those huge robots in the missile base? Dual pistol doesn't do anything except scratch it.

    2. Is there any armor stronger than enhanced power armor? I'm getting slaughtered by so many things in a single hit.

    There's a powerful warp-drill based weapon I can no longer remember how to make that can kill them from halfway across the map.

    Does anyone have a link to the 0.95 Version, since the ones on page 1 are dead/
    #
    Anonymous1157 7 years ago
    MediaFire probably deleted the file since it has been inactive for years. If you can get another version of the mod to download, you'll just have to settle for that one. Alternatively, I once repackaged most of the mods in existence myself; you may be interested in those, instead. Linkage!

    (If the link doesn't work for some reason, you can find it on the second page of The Mod Downloads Thread.)

    Damn, cause I was hoping to play as the other race they added (cant remember its name).

    EDIT : Found the latest version through a link in that thread you posted Thanks.
