    [DMT] NPCs DMT Mod

    NPCs DMT Mod

    Screenshot.jpg


    Description

    Testing version (2.0) of a mod that introduces dynamic NPC characters into the game by expanding on the CreaturePack Humans. These NPCs require some of Sphereii's DMT scripts, and these dependencies will be enforced upon loading this mod with the mod launcher. Many issues probably exist and we need help testing to make these NPCs work better.

    This mod adds many new NPCs to the game. Unlike previous NPCs, these can be hired then issued orders to stay, follow, guard, patrol eat, drink, and can even loot POIs for you. All this is configured in XML. Once hired, you cannot kill them, nor can another hireling or allies in your party hurt them. This blocks friendly fire issues. Non hired NPCs are fair game. They are currently set to spawn in the friendly animal spawn group, but you can change that in xml. They will require food and drink added to a storage container, or in their backpack, otherwise they will look for food and water in the game.

    You set the patrol route by giving the learn patrol route command then you walk that chosen route. At the end of the route order the NPC to patrol. Other commands, like stay, guard, follow should be self explanatory.

    In xml you can set what the NPCs eat and drink, what they use for a toilet and what they defecate (if you turn that on), whats their home block, what they use for a bed, food containers, etc. Take a look at the xml and read the comments. The NPCs are an adaptation of the animals used for another mod, so if you want NPCs to breed and lay eggs, well, that could happen with the right xml. Just don't ask me to help you with that :-)

    Installing

    The NPC mod is found in the
    DMT section of the mod launcher or in my repo here:

    https://github.com/7D2D/A18DMTMods

    This is an DMT mod so it must be compiled with DMT, or loaded by the mod launcher. This mod has several dependencies that must be compiled with this mod for it to work properly. These are:

    <dependency>0-SphereIICore</dependency>
    <dependency>SphereII NPC Dialog Windows</dependency>

    Find those dependency mods here: https://github.com/SphereII/SphereII.Mods

    <dependency>0-CreaturePackHumans</dependency>

    Known Issues

    This mod has not had much A18 testing and has so much code we expect you to find issues.

    No training guide. Sphereii posted details on each new script that contains lots of info on your xml options. But if your confused, feel free to ask questions here. Well, except questions about egg laying....

    DarkStarDragons entities (Pest, Hunter etc.) still use gen2 tech but will be converted in time.

    Credits

    First, thanks to SphereII for creating all the new AI tasks and scripts that make these NPCs possible.

    Thanks to DarkStarDragon for joining in this project and adding his own NPCs to this mod.

    And a shout out to Mumpfy who edited the base meshes and retextured several of these new entities.

                    The NPCs look great
                    But, my empty jars have quality and don't stack...
                    If it's only me that's having this problem, I'll go find out what I might have done

                      FINALLY !!!

                      The best mod ever is out! I must try it asap!!!

                      Quick question. When you say "In xml you can set what the NPCs eat and drink, what they use for a toilet and what they defecate (if you turn that on), whats their home block, what they use for a bed, food containers, etc. Take a look at the xml and read the comments.", do you mean we need to edit xml or it's optional and we can just use the defaults?

                        You can just use the defaults as that's what we used during testing. If you only want them to drink beer you wouls make that change in xml. The jars not stacking is an artifact of cow things and will be fixed hopefully today.

                          Oh wow, I didn't realize it had such complex possibilities. If you want to go that deep, maybe you could somehow make it so that random characters will have random taste? One would prefer beer, another would need coffee, while some other npc would prefer just water?

                            Oh good, it wasn't something I did! Thank you, thank you, I'll be looking forward to the fix.

                              Sphereii's SDX code modlets are very flexible and powerful. In testing we only scratched the surface of what's possible. He documented each class which shows how they are used. My NPCs are just samples we used in testing with xml that seems to provide a stable NPC. For example, move the Maslow task before the patrol task and the NPC will often fail to patrol because hes worried about his next meal. So its best to read Sphereiis documentation before changing things.
