Hello, I thought it´d be nice to have some more town NPCs [and so did Phlebas, hehe] so I thought I´d present a little concept for a mod and maybe some people will be interested enough to lend a helping hand. Problems: - Sprites are needed, especially the NPCs themselves of course. If you know of fitting sprites that could be used or would even make some drop a note. - The NPC making tutorial is very basic. VERY basic. Looking at dogsonofawolf´s NPCs helped a bit but I still have no idea how to achieve many features[like letting NPCs say lines only when certain conditions are met] so I would need help with the code, too. So you see this would not be "my" mod but more of a community effort. If said community has interest, that is. Concept: I plan to write at least 20 lines for each NPC. I didn´t assign everyone a spawn mechanic yet cause the vanilla game doesn´t have items suitable for spawn mechanics for all characters. I´ll have to take a look and see if I find a fitting sprite somewhere and if not hope that someone feels like making one. Btw, is taking stuff from dead mods frowned upon here? http://www.terrariaonline.com/threads/wip-released-terraria-city-mod.82181/ That sure has some nice sprites, like the chopping block. Would be a much better spawning condition than what I had in mind and it´s a shame to let it go to waste. Also I´m not sure if it is a good idea to make the spawn conditions as "basic" as those or whether it should be something harder to achieve, as to make NPC spawning better controllabe?! Well optimum would be to have a craftable, fitting custom object for each of them anyway, but that could be a bit much to ask. Also I try to keep it basic regarding the spawn mechanic so I don´t have to ask for help too much but hey, I could sure come up with better stuff if some coder is bored Also they will sell stuff that makes sense to sell for them. Not decided yet what exactly. Mayor Welcome to my town! Well alright, alright, it´s yours! Calm down... Spawns when: A fitting item is found. Saintly Priest Thou shalt not kill bunnies. Spawns when: Angelic Statue in inventory. Corrupted Priest Slay the bunnies! Shoot the birds! Spawns when: Vile Powder in inventory. Woodcutter I´m able to identify all sorts of wood!
