Title: Moddie the vixen
Post by: Bardess on May 27, 2007, 08:56:33 AM
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Moddie - the fox monster in your backpack (Edit, SPOILER: actually, she gets into Aerie's only)

(http://img166.imageshack.us/img166/2079/zmoddymnn6.png)

Moddie is another one of Irenicus's experiments, a cute female fox obsessed with "foods" who can turn into a werewolf or greater werewolf  :o, and a thief. You can take her in from Irenicus's dungeon. She banters with 12 of BioWare's NPCs and should have a Tree of Life dialogue, a couple of dialogues with the PC and several PC-initiated dialogue options with a few random responses (the flirting technology  ;)). She is a SoA NPC.

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Stats:

Str: 13
Dex: 18
Con: 16
Wis: 13
Int: 9
Chr: 11
*and they change when she turns into a werewolf  :evil

Download her from this page.  ;)

It should be more intelligent. After all there is a spell called fox cunning, which increases intelligence. ;D

But it doesn't speak properly and is always asking for food. She's intelligent for an animal, but can't do maths! Besides, I'm sick of all the intelligent NPCs out there  :P.

Congrats on your release!

I will be adding this to the NPC mod list at SHS.

One thing, could you list her alignment?

Of course. I forgot... Moddie's taken over, I guess.  :-[

A bigger version of Boo?

Good job lass.

A bigger, pesterous version of Boo.  ;D

Moddie is just adorable!  I really like her voice and the fact that you can equip her with a ranged weapon.  I've just had one banter with her with Edwin so far but the others will probably come later.  Her PID menu is also cute.
I just don't get why she is called the Monster in your Backpack when she isn't in your backpack?  Oh well it isn't the first time something went right over my head. 
Nice job Bardess!  I really like her and look forward to Fiars.  Boy is he hot!   :evil

I know the backpack stuff is untrue. I never really imagined it that way, but that line just occurred to me when I thought about a lillo vixen companion. I should have mentioned explicitly that she does eat up a companion place.

Her overpowerness was a little unintentional, but she is a One Day NPC people have to take in for *something*  ;).

A bigger, pesterous version of Boo.  ;D


Sqeek? :o
Not squeek; Auuuu!

Well at least it does not take up an inventory slot.

 ;D  Wow, better a companion space!  Oh and I don't think she's overpowered I'm just so relieved that I don't easily get her killed. 
Oh and hey don't call her an "it!"  She's a vixen and has a great little personality!   ;D

So glad that you like her  :wub.
Now, as I said, had to make her a little overpowered ;) so that she would not be worthless in a party, being a One-Day and all  ;).
As for the gender, you have seen you can also call her fox  ;D.

Heard about Moddie at PPG and had to pick her up! Thing is, my computer's showing it's a rar file but I keep getting a txt file instead. Am I doing something wrong here?

You need WinRAR to open it. Link. (http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm)

Moddie got a German translation, by Vorpal!
Could someone tell me how I can include the language choice?
Title: Re: Moddie the vixen
Post by: Raven on May 01, 2008, 06:10:00 PM
In the TP2 file an example from my Dark Ritual mod:

AUTO_TRA ~dark/%s~
LANGUAGE "American English" "american"
  ~dark/american/setup.tra~

LANGUAGE "Francais" "french"
  ~french~   
  ~dark/american/setup.tra~

Replace dark with your mod folders name.

Bardess, (and Leomar), I was running through a test of BiG world with generalized_biffing, and found that for some reason some versions of windows may be having troubles with

Code: [Select]
@echo off
FoxMonster\oggdec override\Z_MODD*.ogg
del override\Z_MODD*.ogg

I am not sure why, because we have had that kind of code around forever, but for whatever reason on three successive installs all of moddie's .ogg were left in the override. More files = more to look through - it is likely harmless - I found her soundset working without any troubles. but folks using huge installs or older machines may have some troubles with extra stuff in their override folder.

I suggest changing the way the audio is processed to the modernized way, where the .ogg files are left in their original directory and unpacked there, and only the .wav files are moved into override. Mike1072 has come up with a cool way of doing this and letting weidu handle the actuial movement/removal, so all you would need to do is this:

 Replace lines 108 and on, currently

Code: [Select]
COPY ~FoxMonster/audio~ ~override~
AT_INTERACTIVE_EXIT ~FoxMonster/install-audioModdy.bat~
AT_INTERACTIVE_EXIT ~VIEW FoxMonster/Moddie-ReadMe.txt~
AT_INTERACTIVE_UNINSTALL ~FoxMonster/uninstall-audioModdy.bat~

with

line 108+
Code: [Select]
AT_NOW ~FoxMonster/install-audioModdy.bat~

ACTION_BASH_FOR ~FoxMonster/Audio~ ~^.+\.wav$~ BEGIN
  COPY ~%BASH_FOR_FILESPEC%~ ~override~
END

This means that weidu will run the .bat file right away, and then look for the .wav files created in Foxmonster/Audio, and copy them into the override.

2. delete FoxMonster/uninstall-audioModdy.bat as it will become unneeded
3. move the oggdec.exe to FoxMonster/audio
4. modify FoxMonster/install-audioModdy.bat to read
Code: [Select]
FoxMonster\Audio\oggdec.exe FoxMonster\Audio\*.ogg
to unpack those .oggs to .wav
 

Bardess (or Leonardo, if The Bardess is semi-retired), if you decide to do this, you could also swap the AT_INTERACTIVE_EXIT ~VIEW FoxMonster/Moddie-ReadMe.txt~

for the new

README ~FoxMonster/Moddie-ReadMe.txt~

Hope this helps some folks out.
