Talk:Creature token

From Dwarf Fortress Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search


There seem to be three types in use creature, Caste, or special. What does that mean? For example, why NAME is creature type but its DESCRIPTION is a Caste type. --Jan (talk) 16:25, 24 December 2022 (UTC)

Creature-level tokens apply to the whole creature, while caste-level tokens can be different for each caste. Special has to do with creature variations, these tokens act on some meta-level (before the others?) and decide how/which other tokens are loaded. --Voliol (talk) 00:49, 26 December 2022 (UTC)

So, caste-level tokens CAN be applied to the entire creature, but are also individually applicable to each caste. I think I was also misinterpreting the phrase "Caste-specific" in some of the notes. So yeah, that makes much more sense now. Qeveren (talk) 00:54, 26 December 2022 (UTC)

NO_EAT Token[edit]

According to this page, the creature token [NO_EAT] "seems to cause worldgen crashes if it is part of an entity with [PERMITTED_JOB:FISHERMAN]". However, the raws for version 50.11 appear to disagree. In creature_standard.txt, goblins have [NO_EAT], and in entity_default.txt, [ENTITY:EVIL] has [CREATURE:GOBLIN] and [PERMITTED_JOB:FISHERMAN]. Maybe the [NO_EAT] Token works here because goblins also have [BONECARN]? --Bigjetman (talk) 18:33, 7 February 2024 (UTC)
