Mod adjustments - Better UB tenants and scripts tweaks

Post by maiesen on Mon Aug 07, 2017 3:11 pm

First off I want to say that I don't know if this is a fitting place. If there is some place more appropriate I'll move there.

I must thank Sheights for making this awesome mode. It's a great mod overall but there are quite a few things that have bothered me during gameplay. I'm a big fan of UB so I'm a bit annoyed when the UB NPCs gave me 'eaten' status effect instead of something like 'unbirthed' status effect. I also remembered a feature that allows you to force out a prey from a pred NPC which is currently missing. I decided to take the matters into my own hands and shape the mod to be what I wanted to be (mainly about the vore NPCs).

You can download it from my google drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-rBRcmCEFMxeWloRExCWk9aNXc
And here are the details
readme:
I have been enjoying this mod but there are some quirks that I didn't like so I tried fixing them myself.

How to install:
Copy the folders (interface, items, npcs, scripts, stats) and paste them inside \mods\StarboundSimpleVoreMod-8.6.1 . Make sure to replace the original files. If there is anything you don't want to be changed please refer to the texts below.

Feature additions/changes:
-Status icon for being unbirthed.
-While unbirthed, you will slowly regain hunger and if your hunger is full, you will be healed instead.
---This is done by applying new 'vorefill' status effect.
-You can triple interact a full pred NPC to force out their earliest prey.
---Also call releaseHook() function. Though it seems to be intended for only the player.
-Made recursive vore 'better'. (I don't know how to stop preds from eating other preds with prey so I went the opposite route.)
---Preys (including you) can't leave pred that are eaten.
---Preds that are eaten will release their prey after being let out after a specific duration.
-Used 'vorehandshake' effect written by Zovoroth on Eka's Portal to prevent NPCs from feeding inappropriately. (Eating eaten prey)
-Made preys and their preds in slightly different positions to let you interact with pred. (sometimes they are behind their prey)
-Edited female Lopunny sprites. I really don't like how her chest looks so I modified them back to starbound style. Belly sprites are changed as well.
---Not the best edit but I liked it more than the original.

Bug Fixes:
-(Hopefully) Fixed Multivore pred from dying after reaching full capacity
---Still have to figure out a better solution than simply stopping the code with 'do return end'
-Fixed eaten NPCs from disappearing when the world is unloaded.

If there is anything that you don't want changed, I'll list the things each file are associated with so you can choose to not copy them in.
-UB status and UB NPCs
---All files in npcs/vore/
---stats/vorefill/
---stats/effects/npcuvore/
---interface/statuses/uicon.png/
-Tripleclick to force out prey, recursive vore adjustments
---scripts/vore/npcvore.lua
-Lopunny edits
---items/

Any feedback is appreciated. If you find any bug please tell me in the reply. Thank you for your time.

Again, if this is the wrong place then I'm sorry. If anything breaks when you install this I'm sorry as well. Be sure to make backups before installation.

This sounds... nearly too good to be true. Absolutely fantastic for issues that has been bugging me for a long time, yet been awfully hard to fix, and a few tweaks that are... interesting as well.

Oh also, v2 of vorehandshake with a few fixes/tweaks to it came out, not sure if you may want to update this to make use of that...
