Shards of Ice "Summon Cow" Incompatibility

Recommended Posts

I've found if summon cow is installed, you can't properly install berelinde's Lucy mod. I can't seem to attach files, so I'll send the needed replacement files to her via e-mail.

Received the files. Thanks!

 

I can't make the changes until after 2/14, but stuff that includes code gets priority!

 

Gods, how I love the flexibility of WeiDU. I have gained a new appreciation for it, after a sojurn in NWN2-land, where everything has to be overwritten.

Only to a degree. I don't know if the "summon cow" spell was ever meant to be a serious endeavor. Lucy the Wyven certainly wasn't.

 

The latter was a joke mod, thrown together in 45 minutes, including testing, that allowed the player to interact in specific way with Lucy, the wyvern in the Adventure Mart. Basically, it came about because one of the forum regulars at SHS jokingly said that he wanted a mod that would turn Lucy into a cheerleader if you kissed her. I think I threw in a little more dialogue than that, but that was the gist of it. It isn't something you'd want to have on every install, but it's a fun way to throw in a little variety.

Sadly, "Summon Cow" makes an appearance in NTotSC. I may need to take it out, and provide the party with a more useful scroll.

It seems there is always an incompatibility between Shards of Ice and Lucy the Wyvern.

French players reported that the summon cow spell is the reason (but I'm not sure they're right), and someone reported that Shards of Ice change the name of the dialog's file of Lucy, to force the shop dialog.

 

I don't know if you can do something with this...

In theory, I could. I wrote Lucy and do sporadic maintenance on Shards.

 

There are many kinds of incompatiblity, however. I'm not sure what this one is. My mod has Lucy turn into a human and leave, so if the wyvern is supposed to act as a merchant, that would be a problem. There's a workaround, however. I can always make her reappear later as a wyvern again and say that the kiss wore off.

 

I'll look at Shards and see what, exactly, it does with our scaly friend.

In v6, Shards will work with the existing Lucy dialogue instead of effectively overwriting it.
