Updated Gaius   C3DS   Jessica | 11/10/2013  log in to like post  5

typeGenetics Only
This updated genome for the Gaius includes a few small, but important, changes. The original Gaius had instincts telling it to seek out Norns for breeding and companionship. For a breeding population of Gaius, this can lead to a rapid decline in population. Instincts have been changed in this genome so that Gaius seeks out other Geats (Gaius). From testing, this greatly improved their breeding capabilities.

Note that if you use a single Gaius as a companion for Norns, this update will not be beneficial: It's mostly for those who would like to breed Gaius.

The original Gaius were created by Ghosthande.

I've been trying to figure out what the problem could be, and naturally, not a lot of ideas came to mind. The Gaius download includes the gaia.catalogue file. If you had it installed before, did you overwrite it with this version? Mine is dated 11-15-2011. There are also several sound files included with the download, though I don't think these would be the cause of the problem.

I know I'm grasping at straws here, but I'm hoping I hit on something so that the Gaius crashing ends!

Mine's the CFE breeding .cos with a couple modifications (the tweak to let eggs hatch in water, and the bit to make Banshee eggs use their special mask spliced in), and I went into where the crash was happening in rather exhaustive detail in the forums.

I don't recall hearing kissing, but I guess it could have crashed before playing the sound.

I've changed the cos file and they seem fine on Capillata, but as soon as I take them onto the Shee Ark(docked world) I get the problem again. Not quite sure what effect my edit may have had, but I know they at least have separate egg sprites now.

I'm a little nervous about my world now! I had a test run of Gaius going for a decent amount of time, filled with plenty of egg production and no errors. Probably completely not correct, but could there maybe be a sprite/body data file missing? Sounds more like the action causes the problem, but I haven't encountered this before and wish I had some better ideas!

I tried the CFE one, my game crashes when geats kiss :(

Hmm, I might have a look into a breeding.cos I know allows geats to breed, (from mummy's creatures) I just hope I can combine with with the CFE one somehow. I have no idea, but I never will if I don't try.

The CFE one allows creatures to receive stimuli from cross-species kissing, if I remember right?

Good question. I actually have no idea which breeding.cos file I have installed... I believe it's got multiple modifications to it. What does the CFE file do again that may or may not affect geats? Maybe that will jog my memory!

What breeding.cos are you using for these? Does the CFE one work with geats?

The mystery was solved! They actually weren't becoming infertile: They were just so uninterested in breeding with one another that I assumed it was a fertility issue. This update fixes that issue!

Did you ever figure out why the Gaius (Gaiuses?) were becoming infertile so quickly?
