Can I get a custom "skin" (creature appearance)?

Post by The Amethyst Dragon on Sat Oct 31, 2009 10:50 am

I have been asked several times if a player can get a custom appearance for one of their characters, and I've figured out a way to do it that get's around the scripting that's supposed to fix PC appearances on login.  What does this mean?

You can have a character with a different appearance than normal.  Want to be a pixie?  Ok.  A bugbear?  That can be done.

For now, I'm going to limit this to one such appearance change per character, since I have to manually set several scripting values in the toolset for each such change.  This will be using scripting, since my tests with using Leto directly on character files won't work right.

How do you get one of the appearances?

1. Collect 60,000 gp in custom item vouchers (a 20k & a 40k, or an 80k or higher).
2. Pick a custom appearance from the following list.  You can preview these in the Player Building Module. (updated 2014-01-10)

3. Send me an email at [email=//nwn@amethyst-dragon.com]nwn@amethyst-dragon.com[/email].  Copy and paste the following into the message, changing the values to what is needed and removing the stuff in parenthesis.

NWN Username: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (use exact spelling/capitalization)
Character Name: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (use exact spelling/capitalization)
Voucher(s) Used: 20k + 40k, 40k + 20,000 gp, 80k, 120k, 150k, 500k (just erase the ones not being used for this)
Appearance: xxxxx xxxxxx (number, then name)

Notes:

The following will not work properly if you are using a custom appearance:
- riding horses
- alternate combat animation styles
- visible armor, helms, cloaks, lenses, headbands, quivers, veils, hoods, etc.
- some visible weapons/shields
- animated emotes
- wings
- tails
- horns
- glowing eyes
- returning to new appearance from a hat of disguise (you'd need to relog to fix)
- possible issues with polymorph, shapechange, and wildshape
- other unexpected appearance issues

This appearance change is entirely optional, so I won't be altering a lot of module scripts to handle every problem that may arise from not having a real PC appearance/model.

I went through the entire list of possible appearances and picked out ones that would be believable as living (or vampiric) PCs and provide some variety...about human sized or smaller, roughly humanoid in shape, and not ones I plan on using for specific NPCs down the road.

I may look again in the future, but this list should be good for quite a while.

If one were to reincarnate that character, would they have to turn in the 60k in vouchers again?

Also, seeing as how there's a decent investment in this, is it possible too have another tiny benefit to go with the specific skin? (i.e. Mephits getting a bolt once/day, succubus getting a dominate humanoid power, Mind Flayers getting extract brain 1/day, winged skins getting flight/movement speed, sahaugin getting water breathing and so on. Can't think of any appropriate stat boosts as opposed to powers at the moment, but I'm sure there are some out there that would fit.)

I'm not saying on-par with the vouchers being used, maybe at half the value or something, but seeing that you need to use the rather limited vouchers to do this, it would be cool to get at least a little boost with it as well.

As much fun as brain extraction would be, I think if the character can have their appearance changed, reincarnate/ ascend, and then have full use of the vouchers again, then the price is entirely worthwhile.

It'll just be the appearances.

The voucher cost is there because this is a permanent change you can't get in the normal course of play (it's not a polymorph effect, so all your items and stuff still function, even if you can't see them...yes, a fairy could hold a greatsword, it just wouldn't be visible)...and it makes it so that I don't have to log into the game to do it while the player is online, I can make the change in the toolset without actually adding any new scripts (just adding a little to two existing scripts).

And since I'm not going to alter all the other scripts in the game to take appearance into account, this won't be adding abilities (it's not a subrace change or anything that involved).

Reincarnation/Ascension will have no effect on the altered appearances.

I noticed that Brownie (1002) is in the list. In the appearances.2da this is an actual dynamic character model. I assume the solution your contemplating would just take the first default look of the model for male and female models and that this model would tend to display more of the clothing and other visual equipment. I was also wondering if you were thinking of adding an actual brownie subrace sometime as the models are already available?

That one does display a lot of scaled armor (but not all), and weapons. No plans for a brownie subrace (I've never liked the term "brownie" anyway, makes me think of a chocolate dessert). Might be a nice option for those that want to really get into the role of a mouseblood halfling.

i want to play a wereboar Very Happy. (well, is it possible to extend the Warhulk-shapechange script (or the were-animal srcipt) so you can chose from a list of possible appearances, among them wereboar? now that would be awesome Very Happy)

ok, this won't happen, the actual question is this: will you allow a few golem-appearances for all the ironheart players around?

Pick-your-flavor lycanthrope would be awesome

And just in general, how open to discussion is the list?

The current list contains all the ones available for quite some time. There's a lot there to work with, and right now this is the way to get a different appearance type without becoming a druid, shifter, or caster with polymorph self/shapechange.

When you say reincarnation/ascension have no effect, does that mean if I alter my mouseblood to a brownie, when I reincarnate her, I won't have to repurchase the appearance change?

Also, with brownies... how will the head models be handled? What my mouseblood has as a head now isn't available for the brownie appearance (brownie head models seem to be part elf, part gnome, part halfling selections, and the gnome selections arent' scaled, and are mostly the goblin head appearances).

The appearance will not change back due to reincarnation/ascension.

The default brownie head is probably the one that will appear on changing.

I may be wrong, but I think the head you end up with as a brownie is related numerically to the head you already have when you change your appearance. If you end up without a head, try going to the "head shop" in Macedone (can't remember the name Razz) and chose from one of the first 8 or so heads for your race. You won't end up with the head you chose unless you're an elf, but you'll at least have something and you can always use trial and error to find one you like.

Yes, it would, if you pick a model/appearance that doesn't have a wing or tail node.

If you are a demonspawn and you take the erinyes model, it has wing and tail nodes, so you would get demonspawn wings and tail. I'm not sure what the coloration on them would be, since the wings and tail inherit your skin color (and NPC models don't have skin coloration).

Woah! I just looked through a lot of the models (base and ccp) through the toolset, and there are some neat additions.

Some of them were likely made for, ehr, other communities, and some of them weren't the greatest (Vecna did not fit my expectations), but many of them are pretty neat. I could totally see myself using a Kenku skin.

I'm all about the Kenku. I just need to figure out what sort of Kenku I want. As far as build, I mean.

My halfling is a mouseblood halfling. I'm not sure how long I have to wait for an 80k custom voucher, but I still have my 40k voucher. Can I use my 40k voucher and 20,000 gold for a brownie appearance?

I'll allow this, and I've added it to one of the possible options to include in the email to me (in the initial post in this thread).

So, you now need at least a 40k voucher + 20k voucher OR a 40k voucher + 20,000 gp OR one of the higher value custom item vouchers.

I'm just wondering how long this will take. I sent the email a few days ago for a brownie appearance. I apologise if I'm being impatient, but now I'm scared to play her in case I die and lose part of my 20k gold.

I hope I didn't make a mistake.

I got the email, and the change will be in either the next server reset or the one after.

Updated list in 1st post with names as they appear in the toolset (I'd changed many a little but since first posted), and added in a few more appearances for those interested.

So is there a chance of getting a model that's not on the list, but is an alternate version of one that is? There's a lot of mind flayer models that look way better than the base nwn one.

I had this same thought for a future shadowy character, so I'll add my vote for something like this, if you're making note of suggestions for future appearances.

Newer ones, though I have to manually add custom wings to match (which could be the dragonfly wings or butterfly wings).

That wouldn't be necessary if the PC is going for the fae-adept class though as they get the wings already?
