Npcs are expected to have gender

Post by Travolta » 05 Mar 2016, 12:00

All npcs (and mobs, including Luvia) are now using the gender-neutral character model
It's awkward seeing Sagatha and Luvia in neutral gender. First of all, everybody is used to old look, second, how can a witch not be female? It's a step back IMO.

If you want to give a NPC a female or male body go ahead. I'll merge it. Meko and I went with M everything because there as such an epic level of everything that needed to be changed. Yerp, I was lazy. But meh, unless your going to help I doubt anyone is going to circle back on this for awhile.

If anyone does want to submit patches to change a NPC to the gender to how they a referred, I'll have no problem merging it. They just need the xmls fixed in client-data to reflect proper gender.

First of all, we'd need the list of those NPCs. So far we have Sagatha, Luvia and the bunny girl (no idea where she is!). Who else?

Edit:
Probably Miriam too.

Eomie, Elanore, Sarah, Gwendolyn, Estrilda, Inar, Swezanne, Cyndale, Silva, Hetchel, Latoy, Candide, Rebecca, Sara, Old Woman, Sabine, Airila

Troupeleader and Issay should be N (IMO)

Bump Diddly-ump for https://github.com/themanaworld/tmwa-cl ... issues/338

Easy check list on github for anyone who wanted to start learning how-to develop.

What needs to be done:
Find NPC Id in server data

Code: Select all

001-1,71,23,0|script|Eomie|164
Open ./npcs/npc164.xml in client-data:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<npcs>
  <npc id="164">
   <sprite>model/base.xml|#53202b,7f4f45,9e6a43,d09459,fcd3a1,fefffc;#2f312f,727471,a4a6a3,dad5f5;#3a3a3a,d5d5d5</sprite>
    <sprite>hairstyles/hairstyle19-female.xml|#53202b,7f4f45,9e6a43,d09459,fcd3a1,fefffc;#2f312f,727471,a4a6a3,dad5f5;#dbd41e</sprite>
    <sprite>equipment/head/silkheadband.xml|#77a85c,86b36e,9cc27e</sprite>
    <sprite>equipment/chest/robe.xml|#558b39,6b9a4a,77a85c,86b36e,9cc27e</sprite>
  </npc>
</npcs>
Change that to:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<npcs>
  <npc id="164">
    <sprite>model/female.xml|#53202b,7f4f45,9e6a43,d09459,fcd3a1,fefffc;#2f312f,727471,a4a6a3,dad5f5;#3a3a3a,d5d5d5</sprite>
    <sprite>hairstyles/hairstyle19-female.xml|#53202b,7f4f45,9e6a43,d09459,fcd3a1,fefffc;#2f312f,727471,a4a6a3,dad5f5;#dbd41e</sprite>
    <sprite>equipment/head/silkheadband-female.xml|#77a85c,86b36e,9cc27e</sprite>
    <sprite>equipment/chest/robe-female.xml|#558b39,6b9a4a,77a85c,86b36e,9cc27e</sprite>
  </npc>
</npcs>
One commit per NPC please. It will make it easier to check them.
