[1.0.0] Spidertron graphics scaling

Post by lovely_santa »

Hi,

I tried scaling spidertron to make him extra large or extra small, however this works perfectly for the base (head+torso), this doesn't work for the legs. They are always the same for any scale applied (up and downscaling), see images. Klonan said this would need some engine rework as it seems to be correctly defined. It seems to be either not scaling the graphics, or the legs are ignoring the defined 'length'.

I've attached the file in question (working on angels mods). Include it in data.lua, and then you can insert one in your inventory.

Code: Select all

/c game.player.insert{name="crawlertron"}
Scale = 0.5; the legs are too thick compared to the base:

The Broodmother (red) is 1.8 times the size of a spidertron and the baby spiders are 0.5 size (black, with 0.75 sized legs because that looks cooler to me, but "perfect scaling" is possible).
Also the scaling is configurable with startup options in my mod.

doing some other headswaps to try out some cool mod ideas I had.

You just need to scale the leg prototype graphics and some offset values etc, which are separate from the body. Not a bug ;)

Whilst it is clearly _possible_ to scale the legs, from looking at the Broodmother source code it requires quite a lot of effort (and lua!) to scale the leg size. For each leg, you have to scale its ground and body position, along with the graphics themselves. There's more logic that is used there that I don't understand.

It would be really useful to be able to do all this with a single command alongside or as part of scaling the body, but leave the current system as it is for those that need more granular control.

I'd like to request that this gets moved to mod interface requests :D
