DF2014:Tissue definition token

Jump to navigation Jump to search
This article is about the current version of DF.
Token Arguments Description
TISSUE_NAME
  • name
  • value
name = name.

value = plural name, NP (No Plural) or STP (Standard Plural, adds an 's' on the end).

TISSUE_MATERIAL Defines the tissue material.
RELATIVE_THICKNESS
  • value
The relative thickness of the tissue. A higher thickness is harder to penetrate, but raising a tissue's relative thickness decreases the thickness of all other tissues.
HEALING_RATE
  • value
Lower is faster. Omitting the token will result in a tissue that never heals.
VASCULAR
  • value
Related to how much said tissue bleeds. Higher = More bleeding (Which is why the heart has the highest value.)
PAIN_RECEPTORS
  • value
Related to how much pain your character will suffer when said tissue is damaged. Higher = More pain when damaged (Which is why the bone tissue has a much higher value than other tissues. A broken bone hurts a lot more than a flesh cut.)
THICKENS_ON_STRENGTH N/A The thickness of the tissue increases when character strength increases.
THICKENS_ON_ENERGY_STORAGE N/A Thickness of said tissue increases when the character eats and doesn't exercise sufficiently.
ARTERIES N/A The tissue contains arteries. Edged attacks have the chance to break an artery, increasing blood loss.
SCARS N/A Simply, whether or not the tissue will be scarred once healed.
STRUCTURAL N/A Holds the body part together. A cut or a fracture disables the body part it's in.
CONNECTIVE_TISSUE_ANCHOR N/A Any ligaments or tendons are part of this tissue. Vulnerable to edged attacks, damage disables the limb.
SETTABLE N/A The tissue will not heal, or heals slower, until it is set by a bone doctor.
SPLINTABLE N/A The broken tissue can be fixed with a cast or a splint to restore function while it heals.
FUNCTIONAL N/A The tissue performs some sort of special function (e.g. sight, hearing, breathing, etc.) An organ with such a function will stop working if a sufficient amount of damage is sustained by its FUNCTIONAL tissues. If an organ has no FUNCTIONAL tissues, it will stop working only if it is severed or destroyed entirely by heat or cold.
NERVOUS N/A Unknown - not used.
THOUGHT N/A If a creature has no functioning parts with the THOUGHT token, it will be unable to move or breathe. NO_THOUGHT_CENTER_FOR_MOVEMENT bypasses this limitation.
MUSCULAR N/A Seems to affect where sensory or motor nerves are located, and whether damage to this tissue will render a limb useless.
SMELL N/A Unknown - not used.
HEAR N/A Unknown - not used.
FLIGHT N/A Unknown - not used.
BREATHE N/A Unknown - not used.
SIGHT N/A Unknown - not used.
CONNECTS N/A Holds body parts together. A body part will not be severed unless all of its component tissues with the CONNECTS tag are severed.
MAJOR_ARTERIES N/A Causes tissue to sometimes severely bleed when damaged. This is independent of its VASCULAR value.
INSULATION
  • value
Tissue supplies the creature with heat insulation. Higher values result in more insulation.
COSMETIC N/A ?
STYLEABLE N/A The tissue can be styled as per a tissue style (defined in an entity entry)
TISSUE_SHAPE
  • value
Value can be one of the following:
LAYER
Regular layer tissue.
STRANDS
Can be spun into thread at a farmer's workshop. Edge attacks will pass right through the tissue.
FEATHERS
Edge attacks will pass right through the tissue.
SCALES
?
CUSTOM
?
SUBORDINATE_TO_TISSUE
  • value
Tissue is implicitly attached to another tissue and will fall off if that tissue layer is destroyed. Used for hair and feathers, which are subordinate to skin.
TISSUE_MAT_STATE
  • SOLID, SOLID_POWDER, LIQUID, or GAS

(possibly others, as well. Needs testing.)

Sets/forces a default material state for the selected tissue.
TISSUE_LEAKS N/A The selected tissue leaks out of the creature when the layers above it are pierced.

Tissue layer tokens[edit]

These are used in creature raws to override the above for whatever reason.

Token Arguments Description
SET_LAYER_TISSUE
  • tissue
Sets a tissue layer to be made of a different tissue.
TL_RELATIVE_THICKNESS
  • value
Sets a new relative thickness for selected tissue layers.
TL_CONNECTS Gives the CONNECTS attribute to selected layers.
TL_MAJOR_ARTERIES Gives Major Artery attribute to selected layers.
TL_HEALING_RATE
  • value
Sets a new HEALING_RATE of the selected tissue layers.
TL_VASCULAR Sets a new VASCULAR value (which modulates bleeding) for selected tissue layers.
TL_PAIN_RECEPTORS Sets a new number of pain receptors for selected tissue layers.
