Dragon done. I can't make it fit in the "book" when founding a capital. It just shows a blank page. :/
A few small issues:
In the faction creator, there is "Ogre Crotch" on the dragon. The size can be scaled down to correct this, which will leave you a miniature dragon, the size of spider legs bottom.
Also, there is only one posture it can stand in. This isn't really a problem however.
Obviously, the dragon cannot equip items except for accessories. This is part of the intention anyway.
I suppose the good news is that once I upload this, there will be a good template for anyone to replicate it with any "Monster Sovereign". I will include an "Instruction Manual" in the opening post when i upload it and make the thread. Hopefully, anything I did wrong can be corrected and used as a learning experience which other modders in the future can look at for their own works. I can honestly say about half of what I learned came from replies to other "help me" posts. I also look forward to seeing what other ideas can be achieved with it.
For some reason unknown to me, Ongr the Unbound shows up in the build queue. I don't know how to get rid of it.
I am still fine tuning some units. I want a small blend; a few dragon monsters, a few spiders, a few butcherman... These units are intended to be unarmored (for the most part). There are also a few scattered helpers from among the normal races: Some quendar units, a few krax or altarian or wraith units. Lastly, I am thinking about making 3 Monster Henchmen. They could be syndicate, darkling, ogre, spider or almost anything. I am open to ideas about which should be the Henchmen. So far, I am using Forest Drake recolored red, named Blood Drake. I set <GetPerksOnLevelUp>1</GetPerksOnLevelUp>, but did NOT set it as a champion.
Use the amulets/rings to create some "Collars" and a few other accessories.
Finish and touch up units (Most are monsters, one will be a dragon who functions as a henchmen and one who functions as a Sion, however I might err with the Sion in lieu of perma-death). First, I will need to get a little more cozy with the unit models and seeing what I can do and shouldn't do.
Balance it the best I can
Fix any bugs I haven't discovered
Build an exclusive "Path of the Dragon" (will update to this from the first release once I figure it out and design its abilities.)
Replicate the process for: Undead, Elementals, Titans, Demons, The Syndicate, and Monsters.
To all of these ends, I am open to advice and hope to make an upload within this week; only one essay to write so I will have a little more time.
