Splicing Hatchery   C3   Arnout | 3/23/2018  log in to like post  5

version1.2
This hatchery allows you to splice up to 5 egg agents multiple times, and store the result in an egg. The hatchery has an old look and features multiple options to customize your (upcoming) Creature populations.

The Splicing Hatchery spawns below the Norn Egg Layer in the Norn Terrarium. It is currently only available for Creatures 3, but should work in docked DS worlds as well. Depending on its succes, I might create a DS stand-alone version as well. Though I've got no idea where I'd put the thing. :$

For more information on how to control it: See the agent help descriptions.

And here's a screenshot of the Splicing Hatchery in action.

Good to hear that it works after all. No idea how the restart did that, honestly. :P

Update: Interestingly enough it now runs without any error ( I restarted my game) maybe that was it :) ?

Interesting. I must confess that I hadn't tried it out in docked worlds yet, because I presumed that the C3 script should work there too. I'll look into it later once I work on the DS version.

Is it normal that this agent gives me an error when I try to use it in a docked world? It always tells me it is loading an invalid slot:

Runtime error in agent 3 4 26502 (Egg) script 3 4 26502 1000 unique id 20780
Gene file not found or attempt to load into invalid slot

(however I can click brutal ignore and still use the egg)

Cool idea!

The agent no longer collides with the ultranamer and the coconot (1.2). :$

Thank you all for the advice for DS (both here and on the screenshot page).

I'm releasing an update (1.1) because I felt that it was necessary.
- An agent description was missing. If you're updating from the original. Make sure that you remove 'vanillahatchery.catalogue' from your C3 catalogue folder.
- The Creature in the uppermost cell can now be loaded multiple times during splicing. In the original script, the Creature type in the uppermost slot was only loaded once. So if you chose a Banshee Grendel in the first slot (for instance), some other Creatures in the rest - and then make the hatchery splice 49 times: You'd never see Banshee Grendel traits in the Creature that appears from the eggs.

I'll likely tweak the machine a bit more before I'll convert it to DS stand-alone. I still feel that new hatchlings could be more diverse.

You could theoretically try to merge it with the workshop screen somehow. I suggest looking into how the DS Eggonicer handled that.
