Custom Content Challenge: February 2018: Golems


#1

The theme for this month's challenge: "Golems":

NWN already had loads of golems. Some better (all Project Q ones), some Worse (Default Flesh Golems), but hey... constructs are pretty cool type of mobs, in my opinion and such theme would give the creators pretty wide range to choose with, eg. Inevitables from Planescape (we already have Marut) or Sand Golems, or some crazy Arcane Constructs from WoW... or something entirely different.

This theme was suggested by Haverok.

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 NWNCCCMakers@gmail.com (or a non-Vault link provided) by March 1st, 2018. Sooner than that is perfectly fine too. ;-)

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.  

If you want to discuss the Monthly Custom Content Challenge idea as a whole or wish to submit ideas/themes for future monthly Challenges, please post in its thread here

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!

Have no fear and join the fun!

And finally, you can:

Tad why not create the poll right here? It is really simple and you wouldn’t need to link to it. There are very simple instructions here.

Example -
Should we have the vote in this thread?

  • Yes
  • No
  • Don’t Care

#4

(What vote?)

(Oh, for future theme? Is it because it’s already been in progress? It does seem like it is more visible the way it is, now, from the main vault page…)


#5

I can link the regular polls to the front/top of the main Vault page, so more people see them.


#6

If it’s just a web link then you can do that here too -

https://forum.neverwintervault.org/t/custom-content-challenge-february-2018-golems/202/3

The three at the end of that address would take you to the third post in this thread which just happens to have the dummy poll in it.

I had been putting off a related project for a while, so I stopped procrastinating. These are just a bunch of reskins of some BW golems, but I figure I may as well contribute what I can from time to time. A few pics below.
