Title: [1.0] Dinosauria: A Rimworld Mod / v1.4
Post by: spincrus on September 17, 2017, 10:12:04 AM

Version 1.4

Description
What if we were to finally discover dinosaur DNA sequences, despite being incomplete, and fill the blanks with various genome sequences spliced from left and right, with a little bit of imagination to help guide us?

Wonder no more! A group of Glitterworld scientists, having long abandoned the ideals to terraform the rimworlds with a purpose, went out of their ways to answer just that. With the mechanoids long having gone haywire with their terraforming projects, the dinosaurs created in labs were slowly introduced into fauna that should otherwise have resembled a 21st Century Earth, with little to no care as to their compatibility with existing wildlife and the forsaken rimworld colonists, the latter of which nobody seems to care about anyway.

Dinosaurs

32 new species of dinosaurs are introduced through this mod, all of which spawn in various different biomes:

Credits and Thanks

I would like to thank Spino (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=79297) for inspiring me with his amazing Megafauna mod. I think this mod would go pretty well together with his. Go ahead and fetch it from Steam Workshop (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1055485938) or here on Ludeon (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=34432.0)!

Also many thanks to Spartyon7 on Twitch for her extensive playtesting, and the guys over at the RimWorld Discord Server for commenting on my art or giving me useful advice (erdelf, Mehni). Finally, thanks to jecrell for allowing me to use some pre-written code snippets in my mod (which are not yet implemented in this mod and are pretty much a work in progress).

This is so incredibly beautiful and LONG overdue. Thank you for that!

(If I just could ask for one thing: an alternative Rex texture without the teeth, please?)  :)

I get the teeth thing a lot, and have re-considered it time and again.

I may actually completely remove the teeth if it bothers everyone that much (worked on the toothless sprites and it works).

Actually, here's a Strawpoll, should I remove the teeth?

The reason I haven't used the forum's polling system is to be able to get the response of players everywhere.

Anyway, so, here's another sprite that I've been working on for the past hour, tell me what you think (may end up with a toothless version):

First thing that comes to my mind, too... when drawing sprites alone at night specifically :P

thanks for considering the teethless version btw

It's just fair. I'll have to re-do the intro preview image, but oh well. Not too much of a work for me to remove the teeth, and if I'm to add more theropods, best if I get the community feedback now before I make more.

In other news, the pterodactyl test-outline turned out to be horrid:

If the poll is close to a tie or in favour of the teeth I would really appreciate if you would provide alternate sprites without teeth as an optional download. (if it wouldn't be too much trouble for you)

I hear you. The only problem I have with that is that I'll have to maintain two separate mods at all times, which is double the work for me, and make things a tad bit more complicated.

You could also just put the alternate set of sprites in an enclosed .zip file, with instructions to the effect of "if you prefer the alternate sprites, just extract these into the mod's textures folder and let it replace existing files."  That way you wouldn't have to maintain separate versions.  That's what I've done where I have a mod with alternate sprites that some people may prefer -- no maintaining two mods.

to be honest it would suffice if you'd just add the toothles sprites als alternative in the textures folder (and name them "_alternative" or whatever) and every moduser could just choose to his or her liking. In fact, there are quite a few modders who do this :)

I was considering to implement some sort of mod options, but AFAIK there is no such framework present in A17 currently.

So, I think providing the "toothless" sprites as an alternative and giving instructions on how to install is the way I'll move forward.

Hang on, man, hang in there :D I'll post them sometime later today.

I believe there is but just not via XML, you have to code it with C#. See mods like Allow Tool, Combat Extended, and other as well for examples. They end up all listed together in a mod options menu. I think now that you have released a mod you could get on the modder's discord and they could probably point you in the right direction.

Anyway, great looking mod!

That's probably the best bet. Adding configuration options (via C#) is actually pretty damned easy now, and does *not* require HugsLib. BUT... in my experience, trying to change graphics after the game's loaded is pretty much impossible, which would make a configuration option all but useless.

What if I were to replace a specific string within the defs through an option and force a restart?

Post by: spincrus on September 19, 2017, 04:42:27 AM
What I'm willing to do is to expand on this mod by some C# coding. What I'd primarily focus on would be:

1) Mod Options (a snippet that will rewrite the XML to target the toothless sprites and vice versa)
2) Additional animal behavior (nesting?)
3) Stampedes (to mimic the gallimimus stampede in Jurrasic Park  :D)

I first need to learn how to beef up my coding skills though, since I can be really clueless at times, and the methods that I'd utilize (out of StackOverflow) would probably be the less optimal ways, when there's probably a fancy method out there that does exactly what I want in a single line, etc...

Is there any trick to seeing the dinosaurs.... I have loaded the mod and it sits in Rimworld in 3rd place behind Base and Hugslib. When I start the game there are no dinosaurs on the map at all..... do they hatch from eggs and appear later?

Theoretically, that could work.  But I have no idea if it's possible to have the game code edit the content of XML files, much less how you'd actually go about doing it.

And I should probably point out that trying to allow a configuration setting to change an item's graphic is something I only toyed with a bit, anyway, back when I was trying to create such an option in "Fertile Fields" to allow users to pick which look they preferred for soil. I tried all the "obvious" methods I could think of to get the game to accept a change of a graphic definition, and none of them worked. But it's certainly possible that I missed something.

The thing is, it's throwing errors because it can't find the A Dog Said's Defs to patch via an xpath add operation.

The problem is though, I know of no way to force the game to skip the add operations if the Defs for the mod in question aren't found via xpath.

I play tested it, and it should work even with the errors. However, I'm now considering to pull the code out, put it into a separate "patch mod" and distribute it as such.

Update: I've done so and placed this into a separate patching mod.

Ever tought about adding DNA as ore so you can mine it in mountains and then use a DNA extractor to recover the DNA from the stone, after that you can use a cultivator that you put the DNA that you mined (Diffrent DNA ore's Trex,Veli,tricera,etc) in and wait for your (Wild) baby dino to be cultivated.

I would love to see this, because this is the BEST dinomod in my opinion for Rimworld at this moment.

Naaah, not really. As long as they don't use the same defnames, everything will be fine, and I tried to use unique defnames to avoid that.

I'll make some hybrids with dinosaurs some day, I promise :)

Idea:
Ever tought about adding DNA as ore so you can mine it in mountains and then use a DNA extractor to recover the DNA from the stone, after that you can use a cultivator that you put the DNA that you mined (Diffrent DNA ore's Trex,Veli,tricera,etc) in and wait for your (Wild) baby dino to be cultivated.

I would love to see this, because this is the BEST dinomod in my opinion for Rimworld at this moment.

That would be great!
Now I'm just gonna hope the creator of this Dinomod (spincrus) adds DNA or someting.

Try reinstalling the Megafauna Mod.
The Smilodon is not on the feature list of Dinosauria.

As a general rule. Pink Textures are a sign that the game can't find the texture where it is defined by the mod.

Reinstalling means delete the modfolder and replace it.

You should use it. The combat mechanics of Rimworld are the worst vanilla part, and Combat, ahem, Extended turn it into one of the best parts, imo.

By the way, I actually started working on the patch...

That's great news! Sorry, didn't mean to sound impatient.

loved the mod, but it promotes a economic flaw, for example: you buy a dinosaur (in this case a brontosaurus) from a orbital trader, you then procced to slaughter the animal and sell all its leather. i assure you will have at least 300% profit on that simple endeavor plus all the meat it gives.
Point is that such a thing is not balanced. the best solution would probably be to increase the price dinosaurs.

edit: i can work the numbers out if that can be of any help

I'm aware of this and have addressed it on several occasions, but thank you for your input. I actually increased dinosaur prices 3x, which may still be too low of an increase. Leather price factors can be decreased, but I can't do anything about meat simply using XML it appears, and I don't want to decrease the meat drops for the sauropods, because well, such a giant should provide quite a bit of meat.

agreed (making the dinossaurs yield less would be lame, hell those things are hugh mungus!), i just did not spot the price change on the changelog "Made some larger dinosaurs (sauropods, etc.) and hard to train theropods (Tyrannosaurus, raptors, etc.) more expensive for balance issues." keep up the great work.

Don't take me in the wrong way, but shouldn't you make the dinosaurs more scientifically accurate? I mean, t.rex (it's not t-rex!) had some feather there and there, and also velociraptor wasn't this big. he also had feathers.

It's just a suggestion though, but accurate dinosaurs would be more fun and realistic (in my opinion).

While true, the mod creator did add in the Yutyrannis which does in fact in this mod have feathers. There's an in-game reason why the normal Tyranno doesn't have feathers in the mod.

Hi, I saw an economic question posed earlier, and it brings up an issue I feel playing with this mod. I have had a lot of fun, but I feel like dinosaur skin prices are too high, it makes it too easy to rack up a lot of silver very quickly, with the diplodochus and brachiosaurus hides costing around 5.4, depending on the social skill. While the difficulty of downing the beast can merit the amount, I feel it is too much, making the economics of the game slightly easier.

Great mod anyways! In my first two weeks I had a dakotaraptor self tame (best of luck, since i think it is probably the best designed alongside the velociraptor)

Thanks!

Ok so i got a problem/question, are compys (Compsognathus) supposed to be able to kill bigger dinos and animals by themselves?

I watched a compy tear appart a muffalo, the muffalo didn't even fight back, i tought it was a little wierd, but i said to myself that maybe thats normal.
But then i saw a dead Diplodocus (Da big dino) and checked its health tab, it was slowly torn apart by a compy, the same one that killed the muffalo, and again i think the Diplo didn't fight back, just tried to flee.
Then the compy attacked a rhino and the rhino stomped him.
(It was the same compy in all 3 cases)

Sooo, i think something may be wrong.

My internet is shoddy but, if I won't get into trouble I will upload the B18 version and the  A dog said patch in a bit. I am kind of proud of myself I had to actually rewrite the a dog said patch myself a bit, I know nothing about it at all but the ADS patch was failing to load so I compared it to the Megafauna ADS patch and fixed what was different until the Dino ADS patch worked.

I've checked and it is actually allowed for someone to post the real B18 version from Steam onto here if the mod author has gone missing in action. So please, anyone with the Steam version - send a link our way! ;D

My internet is shoddy but, if I won't get into trouble I will upload the B18 version and the  A dog said patch in a bit. I am kind of proud of myself I had to actually rewrite the a dog said patch myself a bit, I know nothing about it at all but the ADS patch was failing to load so I compared it to the Megafauna ADS patch and fixed what was different until the Dino ADS patch worked. I get no errors myself with any of this.

I'm not sure how you're not getting at least one console error (the one related to the tag <hatcherDaysToHatch> which changed in the Rimworld base code to <hatcherDaystoHatch>, resulting in an XML error that the tags are not case sensitive). The other errors I'm not sure about, as I have over 100 mods installed (there might be some additional checks somewhere). Could you provide your ModConfig.xml?

PS: thanks for the ADS patch! :)

Sure, you know I have not had a dino long enough in game for them to actually lay and hatch an egg, it is possible I will get errors then but on load up I get none and in-game I get none, well sometimes a workgiver error but that is another mod (I think WhileyourUp) and it rarely fires. Anyway here is my modconfig.xml hope it helps. It sounds like something similar to the error that was making the patch file. It was originally written as <xpath>/RecipeDefs/RecipeDef and I had to change it to <xpath>Defs/RecipeDef. I also tried to make it work with the Modcheck patcher, again using the code from the megafauna patcher as a reference so that it was just part the Dinosauria mod but, I was unable to make that work properly, maybe something has to be added to the Dinosauria mod to make it work.

Thanks! I'll take a look when I get some free time. The other errors I was getting are related to the XML root nodes from Dinosauria (e.g. <BodyDefs> should be renamed to <Defs> etc). Had to modify 4 files I think. Others I'm getting are those related to MeleeWeapon_DamageAmount and MeleeWeapon_Cooldown (from above), but I don't know enough of the Rimworld code base to be able to repair them. I'm curious to see if they are actually generated by some mods which are lower in the load list (maybe AnimalLogic and such).

Sweet let me know what you find so I can fix my own if it is hiding a problem I am just not seeing. Just talking about this for a minute is learning me gewd, I know I am making progress when I got what you were talking about, previously my brain would step outside to have a smoke on this subject. The most I ever did before was modify a ini file. Now I am trying to learn how to do this so I can make my own reverse filtering system for stockpiles...and failing so far but...I am making the game do stuff as I fail so it progress through failure.

With help from a fellow modder, I managed to get rid of the last two errors too. Reuploaded the new version here:

@JinxVanAshke: still looking into how I was getting the errors (each time Rimworld started) and you were not. It doesn't make sense, yet.

So to add to the oddness. I was still using my original file since I got no errors. I downloaded the Giddy-up caravan mod. (Already was using the Core and battle mounts.) Once I activated that, console full of red errors.

I think Dinosauria needs a patch to make the animals rideable, so you should get errors :) by any chance, did you try Dinosauria only with Core in a new game? (and maybe Animal Logic).

@OP

Stunning mod, the dino's look great and I love having them around. I have been trying it out for 3 or so days now and had my first conflict with one of your creations today.

My noob pawn, in the first season of the village, was instantly dead of course when RNGesus gave her an epic fail roll while trying to tame a triceratops.

Well, that was my immediate expectation. Except, with stats that are mediocre at best, crap gear, no shield and wielding only a knife she put it down without taking a scratch.

You will need to push balance really hard if you're going to convince anyone who wants to play on any setting more challenging than base builder to use your mod. It has loads of scope and I'm sure you've put a lot of effort into it, so I hope you'd consider some adjustments. I'll be happy to help test.

My personal opinion is always to allow your mod to be adjustable via mod setting so that people can use it as it best suits their play-style, but I guess that involves a lot more work.

I really rather wish the big sauropods were pack-animals. Had a Bronto self tame, and it would make the BEST pack animal for going raiding.

It seems your mod may likely be causing some issues (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=33461.585) where it makes fleeing animals that are being hunted by dinosaurs spray a blood trail all over the map.

Most likely Dinosauria requires a CE patch to work properly. Here we just updated it to work with B18 (+/- A Dog Said). When CE gets a stable release i'm sure someone with proper modding skills will look into it :)

"
Code: [Select]
BodyDef Knucklehead has BodyPartRecord of Body whose children have more or equal total coverage than 1. This means parent can't be hit independently at all."
This is a dinosaur from this mod, right? There must be a problem with the BodyDef, but i get lost when looking at those numbers :p

PS.: I'm using the unnoficial B18 version.

Anyone one got an unoffical animal armor update for this mod? I think the other one is sort of outdated and has issues.

I'd love to use this mod but I', still on B18. Is there a compatible version? The 1.2 won't work.

Thanks in advance. The mod looks absolutely amazing!

sorry to ask but, why not just update your entire game to 1.0?
you can even run two copies of the game.. one for b18 and one for 1.0 -shrug-
just a thought

didn't really post to respond to this, just wanted to thank the mod creator for it xD dinosaurs were always missing, from my experience
curious why you removed the teeth from some dinos though

Lot's of dinos missing initial armor to blunt/sharp. Think about it. The stego, the minimi, a lot of dinos have plates made out of ???, but they show no armor value. Would be nice to have them and not just being cannon fooder dinos with huge HP pools. I like my stego army but they die so fast...

Balance suggestion:

Make the market value of fertilized eggs relate to the market value of the animal that will hatch.

I like the idea of buying fertilized eggs through trades, and the idea of selling off unneeded animals (rather than butchering them). But currently doing those two things leads to extremely easy wealth generation.

Example: a fertilized T-Rex egg costs 140, while an adult T-Rex costs 3600. A "baby" has a market price modifier of 40%. So buying 7 T-Rex eggs, and just having them hatch into babies leads to a wealth increase of 9100 with almost no effort.

This is because the market value of a fertilized T-Rex egg is currently set to less than 4% of that of an adult. So I suggest setting the market value of fertilized eggs to somewhere around 25-30% of the adult, which is still significantly cheaper than a baby (40%) but would alleviate these market issues.

I was debating on installing this mod and I don't regret it, I love it! it makes manhunter packs so much dangerous, but in return dinosaurs offer great defenses when tamed, also you get really strong leathers of them.
