    Please explain yourself. How do you do what?

    well, how do you do your moving graphics?

    Again, I must ask you to explain yourself.

    Did you mean "How do you do GFX (graphics) for player races?"
    #
    Niwsters 11 years ago
    yes

    Finally, you make sense!

    Anyhow, here's how the cells work (each cell is 64*64 pixels):
    01 02 03 04| 01: Head 02 - 06: Feet
    05 06 07 08| 07: Body (no weps equipped) 08: Empty
    09 10 11 12| 09 - 12: Optional weapon fire animation
    13 14 15 16| 13 - 16: Optional weapon fire animation

    Note that this is for player races ONLY. Other creatures use different type of gfx (which the player races used in Notrium 1.2).

    Now, you can create the textures with any gfx editor (even paint), although if you use one that doesn't support transparency (e.g. paint), you'll need another editor to add that in.

    You can use Flash MX 2004 for making the gfx (I do that. I also find it easier because of the amount of control over the things that make the gfx file... ).

    And as you know (well, you're supposed to), the preferred texture format is .png (although I'm not sure which other formats are supported, could someone post a list?).

    The new texture?

    You put it either to Notrium\textures folder, or to it's subfolder with the name of your mod (e.g. mod name "Bunny", so it'd be Notrium\textures\bunny).

    And for the naming, I'd say anything with no spaces nor any symbols that windows doesn't allow in file/folder names.

    Aaargh! now the modding FAQ isn´t working ! When i start it up, it is only showing me weird symbols ! Anyone know why?

    Are you talking about the PDF or HTML version?

    And WHY do you keep putting the [ color=something ] and [ /color ] tags at the end of your posts?

    If you want coloured text, put the [ color=something ] tag BEFORE the text you want to be coloured, and the [ /color ] tag after it.
    Example (in code format):
    [color=red]Text here[/color]

    And this is how it will look like in the post: Text here

    Is the FAQ a .pdf file or a .html file? I didn't even know the Barebones package had one...

    I knew you would say that!

    It´s pdf, but i think i know what´s the problem... i haven´t got acrobat reader cause i reinstalled the computer

    Then install the lil' bugger. PDFs aren't readable with common text editors (Notepad, Wordpad, Word).

    Is it possible to make a weapon that only targets/affects certain creatures

    Quite easily, actually. Depends on which method you use.

    NOSBoi 11 years ago
    Hi, how do you do this? because i want an abilty/weapon that can only mind control certain creatures(or just one)---i can do all that just not the "certain creatures" bit.

    Oh and Is it possible to hit or effect creatures on your side?

    Or command creatures from other sides?

    Ive made traps to catch stuff but is there a way to make enemies not target it?-Ive put the trap on a side hostile to them but they are not hostile to the trap but they still attack it!(note:its a creature)

    Any help

    Let me get this straight...

    You put the trap as a hostile for others, but didn't put the others as hostile to the trap?

    It's time for the old switcheroo (trap not hostile for others, others hostile for trap)!

    Get more than 50 ether, empty the container. There should be a weird gelatin creature. Burn it with a flamethrower and there you go. NOW GO KILL YOURSELF AND OTHERS!!!

    Uhh... Madgamer? I don't think that's what NOSBoi was talking about...

    Anywho, I can't say yes or no. Try reading the modding FAQ, maybe there's something about it there.

    Although as far as I recall it, you can't harm nor hit creatures on your side...

    NOSBoi 11 years ago
    Ok the main thing is

    Yes the trap is hostile to most but they are not hostile to it.
    Switcharo did not work- i want a creature(trap) that attacks others, but they dont attack it.....

    Secondly is it possible to make a weapon that affects only certain creatures if so HOW DO I DO IT!

    Thanks

    So you put it so that the trap's hostile side contains the trappable aliens, and the trappable aliens' hostile side doesn't contain the trap, right?

    Did you leave the trap creature out of the side list of the trappable creatures?

    If so, try making it friendly in the eyes of the trappable creatures.

    Remember to have the trappable creatures in the hostile side of the trap.

    "NOSBoi" said:

    For example, add a new weapon class and create only one weapon in it (if you don't need more than one). Make it so that the weapon class you just created only affects some creatures (the ones you want to be trappable, if we're talking about the trap's wep).

    Well the trap is not hostile to them and they still kill it which is annoying....... ANy help now?

    Put the trap's side to friendly on the creatures' files. That should do the trick.
    #
    NOSBoi 11 years ago
    I cant make them on the same side as the trap and ive tried it when the trap is hostile to creatures and the creatures are only hostile to me!

    Thats what i meant

    You said-

    <<<For example, add a new weapon class and create only one weapon in it (if you don't need more than one). Make it so that the weapon class you just created +only affects some creatures+ (the ones you want to be trappable, if we're talking about the trap's wep).>>>

    How do i make the weapon +only affects some creatures+

    Is there any way to give a creature a bar when it dosent start with one??? i cant find any ways... or is there a way to make a bar drain forever? Not a timed block one either or a player one- only a creature one (The creature cant start off with this drain)

    Note:there is a post on the previous page regarding the trap...

    Create a new weapon class with the trap's wep in it. In the creatures.dat you can see which wep. classes affect which creatures. Make sure that the trap's wep class affects ONLY the creatures you want to be able to be trapped.

    Thank you Grim i still dont get it!!- Do you mean speciatly 1 or creature class???

    Question 1

    Is there any way to give a creature a bar when it dosent start with one??? i cant find any ways... or is there a way to make a bar drain forever? Not a timed block one either or a player one- only a creature one (The creature cant start off with this drain)

    For instance can this effect last forever???
    23=continuously increase bar parameter3 by parameter1 for time parameter4 with creature visual effect from weapon parameter2

    Or any similar

    Quetion 2

    The trap still gets attacked by the creatures (they run right at it and destroy it usually!)

    Thanks to anyone that can solve my problems

    hmm... i had the idea of dual weaponry (how original of me!) But ive kept wondering: can i make the x/y offset change every shot? As if each gun was fired seperatly.

    "NOSBoi" said:
    Thank you Grim i still dont get it!!- Do you mean speciatly 1 or creature class???

    Umm... In creatures.dat, look at a creature entry. Somewhere you should see a list of the weapon classes that can affect the creature.

    Well, you could make the trap creature invulnerable to the other creatures' attacks.
    #
    NOSBoi 11 years ago
    Yeah but the trap is a target for them and distracts them, so you can just kill them...............

    You can do that by placing it in the timed events block and run that effect every second or so.

    And no, it isn't possible to give a creature a new bar after the mod is loaded.

    As you probably know, Casanova's mod has dual pistols. You can see how he did it for an example.

    Hi, I've just joined the forums, and hoping to make my first post with a mod, but I'm getting problems.

    I'm trying to add races but It just doesn't show up on the menu, in other words, can't select it, it's as if it didn't exist in the first place.

    I don't have ragdoll graphics for the one I have now, but I will add them.
