Published by etrotta - learn more (mod ID: 171182)


Getting Started

After installing the mod, talk to the Miner to receive a basic Shifting Stone which allows for you to Morph into enemies.

If you don't like to select from the list every time you want to transform into something, talk to the Alchemist (or his ghost if he's dead) after getting the Shifting Stone and he will give you a quest to craft a Tuned Shifting Stone - which you can Tune to any enemy you can Morph into, in order to swap between different forms faster.

Thank you for replying to my comment. I defeated the final boss just by playing as an alien crew member. You did a great job on this mod. For some reason the final boss when you change into him is gray instead of purple. But i don’t use him anyway so just ignore it. The one thing I want is for you to be able to attack while morphed into the dishonored one. I think he’s cool and I expected at least shield spell and flood ability. You put a lot of work into it already though so if you don’t want to change it that’s fine.

etrotta @etrotta

I am fairly sure that all of the enemies you listed on that comment should be marked as "unsafe" (thus not officially supported) :P

Spriy @spriy

When I select the shifting stone in my inventory and click "morph", it just closes the inventory window. Is something else supposed to happen?

etrotta @etrotta

Weird, contact me on discord ( my username is etrotta#3846 - dm me or mention me on the server on the mod description ), there could be some incompatibility or you might be using an outdated game version

ZIGGY555 @ziggy555

Maybe you can put up a list of mobs that you can and can’t change into.

etrotta @etrotta

It seems like our bot (which messages me on discord when someone comments on my mods) was offline when you posted the other question... Let me address both questions in this reply:
-> There is an option to "disable Safety Overwrites" or something like this in-game, which allows for you to morph into anything. However, stuff marked as blacklisted is not officially supported (as in, it would be too much of a hassle to make them work properly or at least in a fun way).
*However, even among those, they should not crash nor inflict permanent harm to your save, if any (whenever vanilla or from another mod) does please let me know.
-> There is a blacklist.xml file contained on the mod's zip that contains the ID of all blacklisted mobs. Anything not included in that list can be morphed into, including mobs from other mods. Hit me up on discord ( etrotta#3846 ) and I can identify any mobs you do not recognize from that list, but do not expect a complete nominal list.
-> Both the old one and the aliens are not fully supported but should work reasonably well, I think that you cannot fly as them though.
-> The morphs are treated as vehicles ; so no, you cannot equip armor nor fly ships while morphed.

ZIGGY555 @ziggy555

Hey! I have a very important question! Can you play as the old one or an alien? If you can then can you fly as them? Can you equip armor or do you have all of their stats. Can you fly ships as another mob?

Fredwatson1010 @fredwatson1010

amazing concept. I have no idea how modding works so this stuff amazes me. my only thought is perhaps making it a late or end game magic item. maybe purchasable in the spirit realm?

etrotta @etrotta

I wanted for it to be available since the start, like a new mechanic/feature, akin to how the Minecraft mod worked.
(Namely but sort of also I guess, I haven't played with the later but it seems to have the same premise)

lazerman329 @lazerman329

Does this work for bosses?

etrotta @etrotta

I ""blacklisted"" most bosses and some other enemies I did not want to let the player morph into, but the item allows for you to Toggle Safety Overrides - which is a complicated way to say "ignore the blacklist"... although I do not take responsibility for weird behavior when morphing into creatures from other mods or anything blacklisted
(even though most things should be fine ; but do let me know if anything is way too broken like red text, black game screen or desktop crash)

Best mod ever
rating 10/10 :)

lahaj @lahaj

i did not think you would make them veichles

etrotta @etrotta

Messing with players is frequently a recipe for disaster... vehicles are a bit more safe, and a lot easier to make due to their similarities with enemies.
Even though my minigames mod uses players, it does so in a fully controlled environment - no other mods nor stuff like Unnature Sanctuary's splicer.

lahaj @lahaj

thank you. i really liked the ideas of turning into things that are not your charecter since the unnature sanctuary (hopefully u said that right)

Anorak2023 @anorak2023

If you want to unlock all morphs you can use the following cheat, although I wouldn't recommend saving after using it.
for (object in{
if (object.xml.nodeName() == "enemy") player.setKillCount(,1);
