Creature stage DNA points

Unread post by ProfAlba »

Hello,

I've recently started playing spore again and this time around, I am determined to mod spore. However, I am struggling a bit.

What I am trying to do is make a mod that gives you DNA point when you eat (fruit 2, meat 5, and eggs 15) and have no DNA points when killing/socialising another creature or the objective "hunt X creatures" or "Impress X creature to ally" (or even get rid of those entirely). This , in my oppinion, would make the creature stage better as the simonsays game would be an option and not a necessaty, only using it to have then not threaten you when you go on their turf.

I've managed to find the lines for dna point rewards for food but cannot find it for impressing/allying/killing/extinguishing creatures. I found the following code in the same file but it doesn't seem to be it.

Code: Select all

<uint32 name="creatureEvoPointEffectDelay">1000</uint32>
  <float name="creatureEvoPoints_L">10</float>
  <float name="creatureEvoPoints_M">5</float>
  <float name="creatureEvoPoints_S">0</float>
  <float name="creatureEvoPoints_XL">20</float>
I also have no clue what the first line means.

You might want to take a look at the "Food for Thought" mod. It seems to have a similar effect to what you're describing here, so it may shed some light on the problem.

Yeah, that was the inspiration behind the idea, I was going to reverse mod the packege to find where the lines were but couldn't find it (all the links that I found for it seem to be broken). I did manage to find where the dna for food is but cannot figure out what to do for the other stuff.
