Give character a were-form


Recommended Posts

good day everyone

alright so, i know this is comlicated stuff, but still

i wanna give my character a second form, like a werepig or beaver, and i tried digging woodie's and wilba's files and couldnt find anything i could understand - it seems that everything relating to these form is coded to match them very specifically from the start

basically i wanna make so that at 0 sanity, the character will change his form to something else (not too complicated like a werebeaver, more like wilbas werepig, where the body shape is mostly the same)

and this form will also make weapons un-equippable, multiply damage, add speed, and change speech lines and voice. fun stuff like that

my question is - where do i even start?

This will tell you how to change the animation build at your wim. You just need to instead listen to your character's "sanitydelta" event. See which parameters you get with it. You get oldpercent and newpercent in the data parameter. If you'd rather cut at percentages you can do it like that. If you want the thresholds to be an integer sanity value instead, here's the code for that.

local isInSecondForm = false

local function TurnBackToNormal(inst)
	-- Do whatever is needed to be in the normal state.
	-- You at least need to change the animation build, if your character needs to look different.
	inst.AnimState:SetBuild("normal")
	isInSecondForm = false
end

local function TurnIntoSecondForm(inst)
	-- Do whatever is needed to be in the shadow creature state.
	-- You at least need to change the animation build, if your character needs to look different.
	inst.AnimState:SetBuild("secondform")
	isInSecondForm = true
end

local function OnSanityDrop(inst, data)
	-- Make sure not to react while the player is dead.
	if inst:HasTag("playerghost") or inst.components.health and inst.components.health:IsDead() then
		return
	end
	-- If sanity drops below 1, we become a shadow creature.
	if not isInSecondForm and inst.components.sanity.current < 1 then  
		TurnIntoSecondForm(inst)
	-- Otherwise, if sanity gets back above 50, we become normal again.
	elseif isInSecondForm and inst.components.sanity.current > 50 then  
		TurnBackToNormal(inst)
	end
end

-- Put this in master_postinit function
inst:ListenForEvent("sanitydelta", OnSanityDrop)

i made a test build with the head colored differently, and named it differently. i also edited the scml file name in the build.xml to the new one, named the folder the same, and the compiled .zip file the same.

now when the character reaches 0 sanity, they are completely invisible

attached are my mod.lua, build.xml. and log

mod logs.rar

I'd need your whole mod. I need to see the references to the files, the file structure, etc.

But I think you at least need to do this at the top of your character's LUA file.

local assets = {
    Asset("SCRIPT", "scripts/prefabs/player_common.lua"),
    Asset( "ANIM", "anim/hungry.zip" ),
    Asset( "ANIM", "anim/hungry10.zip" ),
}

}

 

awesome, it works now! thank you sooo much!

alright, so, with the form working and everything, i have another question from the main topic:

i wanna make the character change their lines, like wilba and woodie do, when in the second form.

basically i want them to pick from 5 random lines whenever inspecting something in that form.

i checked and saw that the other werepeople have custom strings for it, but i didnt really understand how they came into play whenever the characters changed form.

so how do i add different lines to the different state of the character?

Just change the STRINGS variables for your character for those particular items.

STRINGS.CHARACTERS.<character prefab name in CAPS>.DESCRIBE.LANTERN = "It's a lantern"
STRINGS.CHARACTERS.<character prefab name in CAPS>.DESCRIBE.BUNNYMAN = "It's a bunnyman"

 

You can put those anywhere.

what i meant to ask is, how do i make it so while in < 1 sanity, the character doesnt use their regular speech file, but rather, a different one?

Maybe this overwrites current variables under the example character "GIR"'s strings here?

STRINGS.CHARACTERS.GIR = require "speech_gir"

For switching between them, you can add that line referencing the different speech files in your "sanitydelta" listener function.
