[A12d] More Mechanoids (v1.07b - updated 31.12.2015)
« on: January 11, 2015, 08:25:33 AM »

More Mechanoids


Description
I got bored with the two existing mechanoid types. They are tough and dangerous, but particularly their toughness makes firefights with them a drag.

So I decided to add a third variety: the crawler. They are bug-like mechanoids that die with one or two hits, but are small, move fast and come in large numbers. They are equipped with precise cutting tools, so don't be surprised if someone loses a toe or an ear.

Now new threats have joined the cause:
- The skullywag: Equipped with cattle prod arms he will paralyze your puny colonists and unlock doors.
- The flamebot: A variation of the crawler, equipped with a flamethrower.
- The mammoth: A fast and heavy melee enemy that is hard to kill.
- The assaulter: An armored variation of the scyther, with a weaker weapon.

With some tinkering you can now repurpose various mechanoids to do tasks that are below your colonists' pride.

Usage
Install and play! They'll find you soon enough...

This mod can be added at any time, without creating a new game.

That looks really cool.

Sounds like they can be quite vicious in melee though, what about disassembly of them? Will they be like normal mechanoids or just drop some scrap/metal or be corpses that have to be buried/burned/exploded?

They are indeed quite vicious, you don't want to get surrounded by them. But sentry guns have... an effective way of dealing with them.

They are disassembled just like regular mechanoids, but yield much less resources.

So will they raid in conjunction with the vanilla mechs or just by themselves?

Would it be possible to add a bill to their health tab in addition to "shutdown" called "hack AI"? To repurpose them into little mini hauler / cleaner bots or something? (I've always thought you should be able to hack downed mechs) having my own army of mini mechs would be epic :P

Nice! I made textures for something just like this last night!





I'm Trying to wrap my head around XML and DLL modding. I know a bit of C# and unity so hopefully I can figure it out soon.

Here are a few I've made so far:

Haha thanks man! I could make these all day but I'd really like to be able to code some of them too.

Thanks to Orion's code, I was able to add another mechanoid that instantly incapacitates anyone that comes within melee range (using Skullywags tazer code) so that's pretty cool! I'm still making adjustments and figuring out what XML properties I can use so hopefully I'll be able to contribute a little more than textures.

Is there a source XML for the two current mechanoids or do I need to go DLL digging?

Rimworld657win/Mods/Core/Defs/PawnKindDefs/Pawnkinds_Mechanoids.xml

Starting point maybe? there's likely a bunch of related files and other stuff hidden in .DLL land...

Good luck man, your textures are amazing and I'd love to see them implemented ( Especially if my suggestion for hacking mechanoids becomes a reality )
