Mouboo to ride on

Post by Phaeton » 12 Mar 2009, 11:13

There should be a quest to get or a merchand who sells a Mouboo on which the character can ride on.

- Mouboo should differ in color (nobody is able to kill special Mouboo).
- Mouboo should move a little faster than character alone.
- If character has Mouboo, he should be able to make a command so that
Mouboo appears. After a while when character climbs down of his horse,
the Mouboo should disappear and when character needs his Mouboo, he
should be able to call his Mouboo by typing the special command (or letter
on keyboard).
- Mouboo should be able to be equipped with armour or clothes. Eventually
you get equipment by doing quests.
- Mouboo should not be able to enter caves.
- Character should only be able to possess special Mouboo, when he reaches a
higher level.
- Mouboo should not be able to be sold.
- Mouboo should be able to be hurt, so that there is need of a special Mouboo doctor.
When hurt, Mouboo is slower than character by feet.

This is only a suggestion. I would be glad, if something of this would be programmed.

Yours, Phaeton

Programming it is not the issue. Making the graphics for it is.

Riding would need new frames for the player sprite and thus for every single wearable item graphic.

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

Were we not supposed to minimize the number of frames on the playerset?

ummmmm.ok lol , why not just make a tame mouboo spell? lmao, maybe a magic attack = tame chance , and maybe this spell should not require any items , but if the gm's wanna be rough about it , maybe a herb is required to cast spell. just my opinion :mrgreen: / and to lessen the sprite development load , certain items cannot be worn while riding mouboo , because it is too heavy , ex.warlord plate , again just my opinion

well, I think we really need a transportation in this game.but I think the mouboo idea is a little hard to do.I was wondering if we create a vehicle like a auto-chariot! I know it`s a little weird but i think the graphics may become easier.And we can say auto-chariot moves by magic!

Or moved by Mouboo

Another option would be to use mounting clothes as a requirement for mounting, and draw only the head of the player on top of a pre-made mounted body.

I like Fern's idea. A pre-mounted body on the Mouboo. Maybe even something coded that would make it where you can't wear your own helmet either. And a premade one is drawn that would cover up any hair style.

Helmet, Chest, Shield and Gloves can all be shown using the same graphic that is displayed when the player is unmounted.
The legs/shoes are the problem.

I don't imagine Mouboo as creatures that want to be ridden, sorry. If you want to ride an animal it'd be better to have a completely new creature which is for riding only. This would require a new sprite image, but so would different-coloured Mouboo with headless riders on their backs.

~think of a new animal...

enchilado has a point lmao , a mouboo kinda has a long neck , so how do you expect to see where you are riding (imagine you are the one riding it) you would have to choke the mouboo to try to look either left or right lol. so how about that teleportation spell? maybe it should teleport you to the respawn point for 40 mp? it seems possible. it will look like you respawned when you use the spell. i find myself using iten spell to suicide of all kinds of monsters to get back to town lol

Well, I think the point of riding on a mouboo is the speed and freedom to go anywhere u want, not just moving to a place.U know riding is glorious and enjoyable. So teleport is fine but it`s really different from riding.
