Custom Content Challenge - April 2021 : Hunters and fishermen

The theme for this month’s challenge: “Hunters and fishermen”

Everything about hunting. New weapons and clothes and icons: rifles, optics, bows, complete with bandolier, fishing rods, fishing line, bait, floats, fishing tackle, waterproof leggings, nets. New game and fish creatures: hares, pheasants, quails, woodcock, partridge, partridge etc. Trout, salmon, pike, carp. Hunting dogs. New tiles and positionable. hunting huts, exposed animals, posable traps, slits, basket and feed with stick and rope, snare etc.

This theme was suggested by quevy.

Guidelines:

It must be fully working in game.
Use of vanilla NWN or publicly available texture is fine. Just remember that NWN textures must have dimensions in powers of 2 (2, 4, 8, 16, 32, etc.).
Teamwork is welcome.
Beginners most welcome. Don’t be afraid, just try, you’ll be surprised!
“Custom Content” includes many sorts of things: models, scripts, prefabs (areas, items, creatures, conversations, quests, etc.), sounds, portraits, or anything else new for the game.
All submissions must be finished, working, and emailed to ** nwvaultccchallenge@gmail.com** (or a non-Vault link provided) by April 1st, 2021. Sooner than that is perfectly fine too. :wink:
Some things you could include in the download/email that would make packaging everything up easier and faster:

2da lines needed.
Screenshot from in game for use on the Vault page. Formats: .bmp, .jpg, .png, or .tga
Portraits (if needed) of your new goodie. Placeables and monsters should include a portrait.
Inventory icons (if needed) of your new goodie.
Any credits you would like listed.
If this is your first entry, please tell me what name you would like your work listed under and provide a link to your other NWN content if you want that displayed as well (the link bit is totally optional).
Remember, the Challenge is all about fun, sharing, creativity, and surprise!

This thread is for all sorts of discussion about this month’s theme: ideas for things to make, questions/concerns, announcement of what you intend to make, screenshots of work in progress and/or finished projects.

When submitting a new theme, please provide a title and short summary of the theme.

If you have a technical question about some custom content creation, please create a separate thread so that the answers can be found later by anyone, not just people interested in this Challenge.

We’ll try to help!

Nobody interested? One third of the month gone already. Don’t forget it doesn’t have to be 3D models. Item icons, sounds, scripts, even pre-fabs are all acceptable for a ccc you know. Could even be a combination of two or more of those. Example idea- New traps utilising item icons and scripts.

So anyone else got any ideas?

I am interested in this month’s theme. Will try to do something relevant. Thinking about hunting horns or fishing rods or some scripting at the moment.

PS: i already got a 90% finished “castle pit trap” (old remnant of a precedent CCC i was unable to finish), but… Is pit trapping goblins or adventurers considered hunting ? :wink: If indoor hunting was a thing, maybe. :slight_smile:

I may have something coming down the pipeline but that something also includes my wretched touch upon skinmesh, which has what I’ll generously describe as ‘a bad history’
