Here's what they might look like in itemdb.xml:

Code: Select all

    <item id="710"
        image="generic-snake-tongue.png|W:#e04020"
        name="Snake tongue"
        description="The forked tongue of a snake."
        effect=""
        type="generic"
        weight="1"/>

    <item id="711"
        image="generic-snake-tongue.png|W:#706060"
        name="Mountain snake tongue"
        description="The forked tongue of a mountain snake."
        effect=""
        type="generic"
        weight="1"/>

    <item id="712"

        name="Grass snake tongue"
        description="The forked tongue of a grass snake."
        effect=""
        type="generic"
        weight="1"/>

    <item id="713"
        image="use-food-snake-egg.png|W:#c0c0a0;R:#b09070;G:#b8a888"
        name="Snake egg"
        description="An edible snake egg."
        effect="+20 HP"
        type="generic"
        weight="2"/>

    <item id="714"

    <item id="715"

eAthena might look at them like this:

Code: Select all

710,    SnakeTongue,            Snake Tongue,                   3,      120,    60,     1,      ,       ,       ,       ,       ,               ,       ,       ,       ,       ,       {},                                     {}
711,    MountainSnakeTongue,    Mountain Snake Tongue,          3,      160,    80,     1,      ,       ,       ,       ,       ,               ,       ,       ,       ,       ,       {},                                     {}
712,    GrassSnakeTongue,       Grass Snake Tongue,             3,      240,    120,    1,      ,       ,       ,       ,       ,               ,       ,       ,       ,       ,       {},                                     {}
713,    SnakeEgg,               Snake Egg,                      0,      100,    50,     4,      ,       ,       ,       ,       10477567,       2,      ,       ,       0,      ,       { itemheal 20,5; },                     {}
714,    MountainSnakeEgg,       Mountain Snake Egg,             0,      150,    75,     4,      ,       ,       ,       ,       10477567,       2,      ,       ,       0,      ,       { itemheal 30,5; },                     {}
715,    GrassSnakeEgg,          Grass Snake Egg,                0,      200,    100,    4,      ,       ,       ,       ,       10477567,       2,      ,       ,       0,      ,       { itemheal 40,5; },                     {}
And here is what we'd see in our inventories:

Marvelous fate! I like the the new Silkworm and Coccoon as well. :)

The tongues look great, but something about the eggs quirks me. I cannot pin it down exactly, but I think it is something about the patches, especially how they at places seem to leave the egg’s surface. In general I like them though! Please take my critique lightly.

The database files; I’d change to capital word initials, now when I’ve gone through them all already. ;) What about Cave Snakes? They definately feel much more light-weight, but they could use some other drop than the Cave Snake Lamps. Would they be eligible for a tongue or an egg?

Code: Select all

    <item id="710"

        weight="1"/>

    <item id="711"

        name="Snake Egg"
        description="An edible snake egg."
        effect="+20 HP"
        type="generic"
        weight="2"/>

        effect="+30 HP"

        weight="2"/>

    <item id="715"
        image="use-food-snake-egg.png|W:#e0e0c0;R:#80f0a0;G:#b0e8b0"

And I would tip my Top Hat—if I had one—in your honour, this really is what we need more of in the game! :mrgreen:

EDIT: I almost feel bad about saying it, but I think that the eggs would do great with a variant image, that perhaps the Grass Snake could use, even if it only is that the “blotches” are of other sizes in other places. The tongues are not affected by that (the alike symmetry that is too identical between different items) though, in my eyes.
