Finding out how to use the script files to mod new items in. My first attempt ended with success, when I figured out how to make a liquid that was accepted by the guards, and didn't just make them drunk. It melted their faces off, usually within a few turns.
I managed to kill a good portion of New Attnam, before getting owned by three guards at once, after only beating UT1 and UT2. It can't be that hard, if I can do it.
NOTE: I suck at IVAN, and roguelikes in general.
Just figured that I'd let everyone know that this thing is still being made. The past few days have been a bit...interesting, to say the least. It's been a bit tough to concentrate on any sort of work, but I'll be sure to get back on it soon.
Just posting an update to let anyone keeping track of this know that this isn't dead or anything. I've mostly been posting updates in IRC. For those who don't use IRC, I've changed this:
Guugzamesh is now Lu Bu.
Genetrix has been taken out, and a guard subtype of Zhang Jiao has been added in her place. That means no more carnivorous plants. In addition, a ring of Yellow Turban troops is with Zhang Jiao.
Mjolak is now Sky Sorcher, Lu Bu's halberd.(Of course, Lu Bu has it in his hands.)
UT4 now has a bunch of Yellow Turban soldiers instead of spiders, and one of the golems has been replaced by Zhang Bao. The others are now Yellow Turban troops.
Altars are no longer in the scripts. I don't know if that means they're gone, or if it means that they just won't spawn as often. In addition to this, the altar in the Cathedral is gone.
I still have a lot of work to do on this. It is nice to know that a player might be running around in GC, and suddenly have Lu Bu appear and rip them apart.
EDIT: In a completely random idea-surge, I have decided to name the mod "ROIVAN".(That would be "Romance of IVAN")
I dunno about chaostrom or Somagu, but, from the start, I've figured that this will mostly be based on the book.
It's been a couple of days, and I am now certain that this idea will get finished, even if it isn't for a while. As a few people know, and some more might have heard, chaostrom, Somagu, and I have been hitting our heads against each other, brewing up some ideas that we eventually hope to turn into parts of a script-only modification for IVAN based on ancient China, as shown by Romance of The Three Kingdoms. As of now, I've been messing with the scripts, checking on what I can and cannot get done using them. So far, the Yellow Turban Rebellion, the Campaign against Dong Zhuo, and the three kingdoms themselves, are planned to be in, in some way or other. As stated, this is still a very early WIP. An actual version of this won't be posted for some time. So far, UT has been modified a bit, so that Yellow Turban guys are in the place of Jenny and the plants. That also means that the plants won't spawn all over the place in UT3. The CVS is being used as the base for this, and I guess, unless it comes to a point where a character absolutely cannot be made using the existing graphics, only graphics already in IVAN will be used. Feel free to post suggestions, ideas, comments, questions, and other stuff here. If you feel like being a part of this thing, go ahead and say it. Something tells me that, as this gets more complicated, I'll need all the help I can get.
Don't forget that it doesn't matter how rotten the peel is. As long as you have a banana peel with you, and resurrect it, you'll get a whole new banana.
You rub a lamp, and a genie comes out. As if that wasn't unbelievable for this modern world, it gives you one wish. When you try to attack it for not giving you three, it kills you with one swipe of its blade.
Original, as in, I was so bored, I decided to mess with the scripts and see if I could make something stronger than any other named monster in the game. I guess I succeeded, since Dethmachina defeated Elpuri, The Ultimate Golem, and Oree in a few hits. Yeah...don't ever try to fight Dethmachina without WM on. You're guaranteed to lose.
And who can forget turning into a monster, and summoning about 50 Izzys? Or, my personal favorite, creating a ton of crap using the cheat that lets you make one of every item a few times, then applying a wand near it. You will get a teleported mess of items that is guaranteed to kill most of Attnam, and is also guaranteed to piss off everyone in Attnam.
