Quoting Bobby Hardenbrook,
Is it possible to add in custom tilesets and associate them with the new faction as well, so that the new undead faction alters the terrain within its area of control just like the kingdoms and Empire faction do? Instead of the terrain becoming pretty green(kingdoms) or dark/foreboding(empires) maybe it becomes "undead looking". dead cracked ground, dead vegetation, little opened tombs and skeletons laying around, etc, maybe a eerie green/black glow.
Sure is, that's why there's a pic of a tile there . Changing the spread of a faction is pretty easy in the XML for basic types, I'm not sure for custom type pics but I'm sure it's probably "possible". Dhuran is great at being able to "Brute Force" something through the code but that requires a slightly complex installation by the end user so we try to keep things done without having to "force" anything.
Once this is released, do you mind if I include it as an option in the faction editor/random faction creator? I'd like to include as many races/factions as I can in the editor so people can have choices. Of course, people could install this mod separately and still reference it in the editor, but I'd like to make the races coming out show up as defaults in the drop downs.
What do you think?
I think we can definitely work something out, Murteas. I can send you the files needed to add just the race and skins but not the faction if you'd like. That way players can use them as they wish. I'd like to keep at least some parts resident to this mod though so people have to download it to get the good. I love watching the download count rise on things the team and I create. Even though this is a labor of love and I would do it for my own enjoyment even if everyone else hated it, my fragile ego still needs to be fed continuously and it's main source of nourishment is watching the download counts rise .
You do great work though, my friend, and we'd be honored to have parts of our work in your mods.
Nice work! Skins look good, Like the castle, but gotta ask on the skin is the pentagram specific to the Ravenloft lore or is that just something you threw in? It has been a long time since I read anything Ravenloft themed.
Anyways, keep up the god work!
I just threw in the Pentagram for fun really. It was part of the texture I got my inspiration for the skin from. I just think it looks cool.
