Introduction: It's been awhile since I posted on these forums or did any sort of modding for Dredmor, Very busy with work life and such, I don't find much time to play games these days. Lately I was taken by the idea of creating a mod skill that used food with custom triggered effects, and farts. Development of the mod was placed on hold because of the lack of a fart noise in the game's sound database, and the lack of any ability to add new sounds through the game's modding system. Hopefully, if this project takes off it could provide a reason for the Gaslamp team to change their minds about modding the sound database file. The Mechanics (how the fart mod is written into the game) "Crop Dusting" A fart has a tendency to linger. Someone farts in the hallway and they walk past, you'll generally catch of whiff of their odors. This "crop dusting" phenomenon can be reproduced in Dredmor through implementing triggered DoT effects that spawn spell mines in a single or template form. "Farting Stance" Usually we're able to hold in our farts, but when we choose, we can force out farts that are louder, wetter, and stinky. By implementing a perma buff that can be switched off at will (similar to plutonic fist) we can create an optional "Farting Stance" that allows us to trigger special fart effects that can be triggered by skills, items, and the eating of food/drink. Obviously such a stance would penalize Sneakiness (which would make this skill more appropriate to a warrior template) "Corpulence" The spell effects associated with fart items should scale off of burliness and/or hit points, because it synergizes will with a warrior template skill and because big fat people have bigger poops and farts. "Gassy foods" To accompany the fart skill, I wanted to add new food items and recipes that would give the player more options for farting on the enemy. That is to say these food items would have a triggered spell effect that could also require the presence of "farting stance" from the Flatulence skill to create extra farty party effects. Rice Pirate's "Asslevania" [view] provided some inspiration here. Advancing in the skill could grant item recipes that the player could use to enhance their farts against a variety of enemies. (perhaps a secret weapon to use against Dredmor). Garlic would definitely be a good "base food ingredient" to add here. How about an Eldritch Chili Recipe that uses Root of T'char-- tentacle farts anyone? "Farty skills" Perhaps a good way to make this skill useful and less gimmicky would be to add helpful utility skills, perhaps a teleport of some kind (Rocket Fart), Perhaps some skill in Alchemy? Not quite sure how to round out five skill slots. This is a pretty bare bones outline for a mod skill. My goal here was to show you what I was thinking and to see if you had any fart ideas. I don't have the time that I used to for this stuff so if an artist is interested in making some art ASSets, it could help with getting the project pushed forward.
