Climate variations

Daggerfall uses the same models in different regions applying different textures according to climate and season. When importing custom models we can replicate this behaviour with different prefabs.

The game first try to import the prefab using with the following nomenclature.

Code: Select all

ID_Desert
ID_MountainSummer
ID_MountainWinter
ID_SwampSummer
ID_SwampWinter
ID_TemperateSummer
ID_TemperateWinter

If it's not present, it loads the generic prefab.

Code: Select all

ID

Tipically a mod includes all climate variations or a single generic model but some liberty can be taken.

  • Example 1

    mod 1 wrote:1001
    1001_TemperateSummer

    1001_TemperateSummer is used in temperate regions during summer season, 1001 in all other situations.

  • Example 2

    mod 1 wrote:2001

    mod 2 wrote:2001


    The game use always, and only, 2001 from mod 2.

  • Example 3

    mod 1 wrote:123

    mod 2 wrote:123_TemperateSummer
    123_TemperateWinter

    Models from mod 2 are used in temperate regions, model from mod 1 is used in all other situations.

Oh, btw, anyoen having any plans on adding sound tot he human enemies? like some sort of yell or grunt or something? always found it odd that they are totally silent.

I think it's both functional and immersive. Tigers, bears, and spiders are too dumb to not announce their presence to their enemy, but humans are smarter than that. Some of my biggest surprises playing Daggerfall were that I would be trying to bash open a door or something, and suddenly I'm getting attacked by some sneaky Thief who got the jump on me :)

Yeah, for surprise moments sure, but they dont even make a sound when hit or dying, that gotta require massive ninja silence discipline.

Would it be possible to allow custom heightmaps in DF Unity, I am specifically referring to this forum post. According to Nystul this would require a fair amount of work to implement as a mod, and is most likely beyond his skills. I was wondering if you were planning to implement the Illiac Bay's heightmap as a moddable part of the game at any point, and if there would be any chance at all that you could implement water maps. I do realize that the second part is almost certainly not going to happen, but the first part seems reasonable enough, at least to me (I don't have any programing knowledge). :)

Also, sorry if this is not the correct place to contact you.

Implementing a custom heightmap is possible, I did this already in my far terrain mod (procedurally improving original heightmap)

Not sure where you read that I can't do it. I think you misinterpreted one of my posts, I am not able to extend the far terrain too much than what is possible already.

Custom heightmap from heightmap data is of course also possible, but if not done correctly it won't work with far terrain and will break it. I know how to do it correctly, but will finish talk functionality first before spending time on custom height map.

Did I misunderstand? Sorry. That's good though. :D

Maybe it's just me but I thought human enemies make quiet footstep sounds in vanilla DF
