|0003002||[DCSS] Bug Report||minor||have not tried||2010-12-18 14:31||2018-11-05 02:06|
|Status||new||Product Branch||0.8 ancient branch|
|Summary||0003002: Naga/Centaur ghosts use humanoid base tiles|
My wizmode-generated (&Ctrl-G) ghost of a NaEE, when loaded, was displayed with a humanoid shape, legs and all. Centaur ghosts also don't show up with the corresponding shape tile.
I haven't yet encountered any such ghosts over the course of a normal game, but I suspect this applies to normal ghosts as well.
EDIT: As KiloByte points out, Felids are also subject to this.

Same for lich and statue forms.
I recently played a multi-Zig felich -- who happened to be my first non-debug game where I actually used Necromutation, and I dreaded how it would look in tiles: a kitty turning into a cloaked human. This may cause confusion and bug reports, too, as tiles players may assume they turn into a human skeleton rather than a skeletal cat/centaur/naga, and thus can use gear they can't in their natural form.
|Oooh, good point. How _would_ a lich kitty look? We do have skeletal centaur/naga tiles - but using those is likely to be confusing. Maybe with some dark glow around?|
|For centaur and naga Necromutations, how about using these tiles? For felids, since they don't wear anything, they could just use the small quadrupled tile with a shadowly glow or a hood and cloak or something.|
|(Note that I didn't make these from scratch - I merely spliced the default Necromutation tile with the skeletal centaur/naga tiles.)|
|For felids, it might be a skeleton cat with red eyes -- or perhaps, something like this: http://www.funz.eu/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/Skeleton-Cat.jpg [^]|
|Overlaying the skeleton tiles with the lich one - nice. :)|
|Thanks, psyshvl! I didn't precisely apply your tiles, but I retraced your steps, merged my versions with yours and modified the results. Hope that's okay with you. :)|

That's perfectly fine.
