Really stunning work.

A few questions about SphereII A Better Life.
The fish is really great, I just wonder about the spawning. There seem to be a lot of fish even if I try to add invisibleanimal and reduce probability. So I wonder how large area does the spawning cover, is it the whole body of water or just a few blocks?
Also I see the fish sometimes is out of water swimming on land, they get back into water again after looking a little confused, but it think this happen if I move fast on a vehicle close to water. Any plans to improve this, or is it just my heavy modded game?

The spawn hook is pretty old, and should definitely be revisited. I thought there was a natural throttle on it, but maybe its failing. I'll try to look at it again.

 

I haven't noticed them swimming on land, but I would assume its possible. Their fear of air is the only thing that keeps them in water.

After testing some more I see that the decoration block have a much higher spawn probability than most other blocks,  so I will try to set the setting similar to most other blocks and maybe that improve it.

Update: Sry for not seeing the block probability, but reducing that made a big difference as expected, so the spawning is ok.

Still a bigger issue is that if you move fast toward a body of water, jump of the bike when at the water, for me I can find some fish out of the water turning toward the water and trying to get back.

The UI should look a lot different if you are using SMXUI.  If you have the Clear UI enabled, then I'd expect things to look different.

i have been using SMXUI for a while...thats not what i was meaning...what i was meaning is how do i know that your mods are working...the DMT mods. i do not use Clear UI.

Hi Sphereii


Everything works fine (Sphereii-core and legacy distain terrain for A19.2 stable), there is no need to change anything.
Thank you so much for this great job that dramatically improves performance.

Regards

A follow up on A Better Life, I really enjoy it but there is two issues that is repeating and it is kind of immersive breaking.
1. When spawning into game close to water, I guess when inside water biome, I see fish on land.
2. As said before, jump on a vehicle and drive to a body of water and there will be fish on land.
I see that biome spawning is set to underwater, but why they end up on land will just be wild guessing for me.
Anyway on both occasion the fish find the way back to the water, it just take some time.

I don't think there's any changes in it. I think soon we'll push a slightly revised version from the Winterween project.

 

I wrote a plugin for my DMT that will auto-update my build numbers, so that's what happened there with the version bump.

The birds are in the CreaturePack animals now.  Betterlife is just fish and other water things..

Hi, sphereii. I would kindly like to ask you for some new features for your DMT core mod if I may.

 

After months of fiddling, I finally got an animation with an animator for my new weapon in unity and triggered it in the game via AnimatorFireTrigger. However, the animation is also played when the weapon is empty or broken.

I would like to have more requirement conditions, such as loaded ammunition and the condition of the durability of an item / weapon.

A new trigger, which is only activated when firing a weapon that is loaded and intact, would also be perfect for animations and easy to use.

 

While I'm on the conditions, these are very limited in the game and I would also like to be able to query whether there are items with certain tags in the backpack or the tool belt. Among other things, I would love to bring back the classic smell system. These would then be buff conditions.

 

Last but not least, I would like to have a way to create new terrain blocks with your own textures. Perhaps, similar to the zombies, assign a new unity material to a standard block using an XML code line?

 

I hope this is not too much to ask for and that you can help me. Especially all of the gun mods out there would benefit from a better gun fire trigger too.

Unfortunately I do not know C ++, I can just modify a little with dnSpy after a lot of time and trial and error, so you are my last hope for these new functions.

 

Thank you for your time and effort to offer the modding community more opportunities!
