5 options for Carnivore Dispenser

Unread postby Guitar_Guy » Wed, 12th Aug 2009 5:24

Description
This mod will allow five options for the carnivore Dispenser. The options are now goat, cow, visitor, cleaner, and gallimimus.

Known Issues *UPDATED*
Earlier, I had said that if you used the model of a large dino, the game would crash, well I guess that I messed up writing the code, and that's why my game crashed (either that, or the game hates kentros as much as I do, because that was the dino where it glitched). So if you want to dispense a brach, be my guest as the carns will now hunt one.

If you put more than five in, the game will crash.

The people die wierd (i.e. if eaten by small dinos, they will stand straight up and then fall backward, and if eaten by large dinos, the large dino will look like it has a person sized nose ring.

The carnivore dispenser may appear to remain open and never close but will still function normally

The gallimimus and other fast dinos run wierd as I did not change the speed, you can if you feel the need, but the carns may not be able to catch their prey if you do.

Sometimes the models other than goat or cow will walk off the platform, and, if they are not threatened by a dino, they will stand there until they die.

Large dinos like anky and brach will often float instead of run when threatened.

I'm not really sure if this is an issue because I found it hilarious, but if you have ERC's multiple size changes mod, the dinos you dispense are subject to it. So I had dispensed a Brach, it got huge, and then my T-rex ate it whole.

If you dispense a dinosaur, you must have that dinosaur's digsite unlocked or else the game will crash.

Files Modified
carnFDsp.inx to accomodate extra food options

Files Added
The .ini,.inx, and .nwt, files for Goat1,Goat2, and Goat3.

Download
Once you download these files, click on the folder and extract all. Then put all of the files in the jpog\data\units folder. It will ask you if you want to replace the carnFDsp.inx file, reply yes.

Customization
If you would like to change the models used, simply go into the .ini of one of the goats and scroll down to this line:
Code: Select all
Animations {
    Model=Cleaner;
just change the model to the .tmd file of your choice. If you want to change the ingame name for any of the models, just go to carnFDsp.inx and change the screenname to the eng.txt name you want.

Notes
Since I used copies of the Goat file, the models will be treated as goats (i.e. the large dinos will swallow them whole). If you do decide to dispense a large dino, you would probably want to copy the cow file and then change the model because otherwise, the carn will eat it whole. It's funny, but not realistic.

Compatibility
It should be compatible with everything, if not, please post.

Thanks
king_of_kings for his hatchery mod which gave me insight into how to edit these files.
godzillaman for his "feed people to your carns mod" which also gave me the knowledge I needed to complete this.
and thanks to Clainzer for giving me the idea.

Thanks, it's my first attempt at a mod, a couple of little bugs, but they didn't bother me too much.

Strange. Tell me if you get it fixed. You also might want to delete the extra goat files that came with it (i.e. Goat1, Goat2, and Goat3 ini., inx., and .nwt files).

I downloaded this mod, but every time I try to make a Galli with the dispenser, the game crashes. I don't understand because the cleaner worked.

It may be because you don't have the right digsites...

I'm not quite sure how digsites would affect this mod. Please explain.

If you feed real Gallimimus, then it will need the correct digsite.

Technically, I don't. I just copied the goat files and then replaced the goat model with a galli model. In essence, it's just a goat that is shaped like a galli.

Well, I'm sorry this didn't work for you, if you figure it out, please tell me. But, thankfully, raptors rule was nice enough to post a backup.
