I had this idea a few days ago, and I wanted to see if it was completely bogus before I tried it. Would it be possible to spawn a creature generator, which generates creatures with brains that follow the hero? Such as the Summoned_Bandit brain? This way, you just have to adjust the number of bandits that spawn from the generator, and you'd have a bunch of bandits that follow you and fight with you? Is this a completely stupid and ludicrous idea?

It'd work fine. Not sure if they'd follow through region crossing though. But otherwise great idea. Get to it. And post pics. Smile

Okay, I gave it a try, I created a new Creature Family that spawns a certain bandit. I then gave that bandit the brain of a summoned bandit. Then I placed the creature generator, and everything worked fine. Except for the fact that the bandits were still hostile. Do brains not work with creature generators? Or should I create a new CREATURE? Thanks.

I think you should create a new creature. Couldn't hurt.

Use a villager. There's an unknown in the main CREATURE entry that makes them hostile.

Okay, I'm making progress. The villager is friendly, and he follows me, though not through regions. The only problem is, he doesn't attack. I gave him a weapon, the brain of a summoned bandit, and I gave him a new CAppearanceDef just to make sure that he had the anims to attack, and he still just follows me around with his axe out while I'm being killed. Ideas?

Try the brain of a guard, or base the new creature off a guard, they attack hostile enemy's naturally (thats why my mod, reinforcements, works).

During the story you come across Guards that help you and follow you, they don't attack you, they follow you and they attack other enemys. Can't you give the villagers that guard's brain?

I believe they are being controlled and influenced by the quests script, they still have guard brains, they're just being told to follow you.

These should do it.

I might do this in a large area, for my amusement (I once, with my Jack's minions bow, summoned a bunch of minions, and used the insane TurnCoat mod to take over half of them, and had them fight it out while I watched on top of a cliff.)

WOOT! It works. I have pics too Very Happy Only thing left to do is replace the villagers with bandits, and try to make them go through regions with you. If I have to, I'll just put a creature generator in every region, though that'd be kinda tedious. I also need to make children killable, because when you come into bowerstone and start attacking the guards with your 30-odd men, children become enemies too Laughing Unfortunately, since they can't be killed, my guys just spend all their time hacking away Razz Here are pics Very Happy

Lol thats funny, but if you want to kill children you could change Damageable to 1 instead of 0, or install the Fable PAIN mod.

This is one thing I've never found out how to do. I say start with searching in the main CREATURE entry though. It may have something to do with how the thing is spawned though. Shop keepers can follow through regions right?

NPC's only follow you if you use the Follow expression. Would there be a way to constantly apply that to an NPC?

EDIT: I searched through the CREATURE entry of the Creature, and I compared it with GHOSTLY SWORD. I found a few variables, but none of them seem to help. I'll take a look through the CDefs, but I think you're right when you say it has to do with how they're spawned Blue Sad

My guess is that the Follow Expression and Henchman scripts allow stuff to cross regions. But who knows. You can also try playing with the AICREATURE variable: RegionFollowingOverriddenFromScript

Problem is, I don't think that script could be used with a Creature Generator, though it's worth a shot. And just for the sake of letting you guys know, I went prehistoric on this thing's ass and just changed every differing variable, and it did absolutely nothing. Razz

Well that sucks. I was going to suggest setting "ScriptNameOfAllGeneratedCreatures ENUM *NOTE* Left blank in base scripts" to the Henchmen scriptname to see what happens. Smile

I can't remember if generators are stored in the save game or not. If it is I can see if the variables are being stored with the CTC.

Okay, I just tried changing that, and it basically makes every creature that comes out of there into a bodyguard. You have to pay for 'em, and you have to hire 'em individually and that's not too feasible for 50 NPCs Sad Any other creatures that you can think of that follow between regions without follow and wait?

Wait... Can you hire more than 2? If so the Henchman cost is in the script.bin

No, only two Sad And it's just tedious to walk up to 50 people individually and hire them. Would there be a way to hire all at once? If I have to, I'll just stick creature generators in every region so that it seems like they follow you Razz

Update: Okay, It's DEFINITELY not anything to do with how the creature is spawned, because I've tried spawning the creature, and I've even tried shooting 'em out of a damn bow and they STILL won't follow me through regions. Crying or Very Sad
