A19 - Dayhawks Modlets

Recommended Posts

I have been watching several streamers it appears that trader Jen is the most loved trader in the game. It prompted me to write this modlet. It does not require additional resource files so it is safe to use on a server without everyone downloading their own copy of the mod.

 

When your survivor becomes a master at advanced engineering, you can now craft your own JenDroid! It requires a reasonable amount of materials and is geared towards mid to late game. She walks around your base and if your within 3 blocks of her she will increase your healing rate. She also can reduce the time for sprained or broken limbs by around 1/2. Nothing too over powerful but a fun little addition. I plan on having droid versions of the other traders as I move forward.

 

"Warning... JenDroid has desires to wander the world and see new things. Handle this as you will."

I hope you all have fun and let me know if you find any issues.

Working like a charm, doesn't heal concussion or infection but works the bones like an expert. I let a dog take me down to smidgen of health and she started the healing process before the next bite which would have been fatal had she not. Was back up to half health within minutes.

 

She could do with a bit more walking speed and the ability to pick her up would be cool cos I dropped her in the wild and she refused to get in the car, preferring to walk around slowly in a daze ;)  I feel the recipe cost is very light in comparison to other mods but I'm not complaining. On the whole, very well done and a nice addition to the game.

 

LOL, no need to pick her up, I can kill her. One steel crossbow bolt to the head.

She showed up when i crafted her  and got ready to place (red women outline) but when I placed it was just a little flat box on the ground. Probably a mod conflict of some kind. Neat idea.

I placed her down and she proceeded to walk around, healing my injuries if i was close enough, but i was unable to interact with her at all.  I had to watch in horror as she climbed the stairs to the top of my wall and then just calmly walk over the edge into the spikes below.  I couldn't pick her up and destroying her body yielded nothing in return.

 

I think the mod is interesting, but i'm not building another JenDroid until she's had some more work.  :)

@Dre So that is the spawning point for her. After a few seconds she should have appeared. I have noticed that if you place her near a wall there can be an issue sometimes. But that plate is normal and required due to the way the spawner block works.

 

@tourist

@Tourist The intent was that she had to be protected and her own AI. Having her wander around without being able to control was part balancing the risk/reward of the block. I could look into adding the ability to pick her up but that will mostly remove the risk.

I think she should have free will ;)  and if you don't try to make a safe place to put her or the base starts to get overrun, you can either run away knowing you left her there to die .... or stay and fight to the death.

 

Actually, a "grief" buff would be interesting to apply every time one of your pets/bots die.  Once it reaches 80% there's a random chance you'll drop all your items and fall to the ground and just let the horde eat you.  The only way to drop the number is to build/spawn more bots/pets ;)

@doughphunghus hehe. The grief would be too harsh I think. The other issue is trying to make mods that don't require new binary files. I want to keep my mods pure modlets that don't require clients to download a copy of their own. With that limitation there is only so much I can do. I am pretty new to this and spent a ton of time on trial and error getting her to do as much as she does now.

Well I've tried JenDroid out for a while now. I have a big base, so I let her walking inside. I play latest stable 19 with War3zuk AIO stable mod. And yes we have a problem with her! She got invisible most of the time, only with restart you will see her for a while. When she got invisible cause problem in my base like when I passes some whatever it is will glitch invisible, not all stuff !

She will need some improvement, like walking generally, (too stiff) walking up and down stairs (she gliding up and down in same degree like stairs), get the speed up a little bit (to normal player walk speed).

Suggestion: It would be great if she could use the sexy voice for some stanzas like: nice to see you, oh there you are, I miss you (or whatever she want to tell/say me) when she is near me! And to the end a tip: If u let her walk inside base, make sure u have plates around top of forges because she will jump on top and burn herself, I'm talking about HD Forge to War3zuk! And for now keep up the good work with her 😎 and hopes to see a better Jen in future. Playing PC.

Hello there! Your mod gave me the idea of creating my own trader. Nothing copied from your files but I still want to tell you this because, there wasn't anything in my mind before I see your mod. I got the idea I can copy a trader to convert her/him to whatever I want. In this case I kept Jen as trader for my invulnerable base (also changed what she sells etc. which took a lot of time to figure out).

 

Anyway, many thanks for your inspirational work!

Sorry I was unable to look at the forums for a bit. We had to evacuate due to the fires on the West Coast. Thankfully we were able to come back home and nothing was burned down.

Good idea's. Because my goal is to keep this a server side only mod, there are many limitations. My biggest issue is the times when Jen vanishes. I have noticed that she will appear if you leave the chunk. She is actually a deer to make her not invulnerable and the walking animation worked with that. I need to figure out how to add her voice. She can make other sounds but Jen voice so far has been a no go. I will keep working on her.

 

@hsngrms Sounds good. I am all about people having an idea and making their vision. I will check it out.
