How long did it take for you to change the nucleus texture?


(He who abuses the search function) #4

Do we have Viva La Disco Mode in the background tho?


(Askyw) #5

Providing you can get hold of the audio file* that would be very simple. Convert it to .ogg format and place it in the sound folder in Thrive. Name it something like disco.ogg. Then go scripts -> microbe_stage -> setup.lua and replace

soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-1", "microbe-theme-1.ogg")
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-3", "microbe-theme-3.ogg")
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-4", "microbe-theme-4.ogg")
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-5", "microbe-theme-5.ogg")
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-6", "microbe-theme-6.ogg")   
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-7", "microbe-theme-7.ogg") 

with

soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-1", "disco.ogg")
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-3", "disco.ogg")
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-4", "disco.ogg")
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-5", "disco.ogg")
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-6", "disco.ogg")   
soundSource:addSound("microbe-theme-7", "disco.ogg") 

(I’m not 100% sure this will work as there might be something somewhere else that relies on the track names, but I think it should. @hhyyrylainen might know.)

* I wonder, is there a hidden track on this album that might be relevant? You’ll have to buy it to find out…

…or just use a YouTube converter if you’d rather not give me money.

the shameless plug Lmao


#8

I’m pretty sure that will work. (In the next release making this type of change will be simpler)


(Untrustedlife) #9

Much simpler. Yes


#10

Changing the nucleus texture didn’t take long at all. Conveniently, there was a disco ball in Thrive’s files that was around the same size as the nucleus. All I did was put the disco ball over the original texture and cut off any parts that went past the edge.


(𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑱𝒐𝒍𝒍𝒚 𝑬𝒎𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒐𝒓 𝒐𝒇 𝑺𝒆𝒂𝒇𝒐𝒐𝒅) #11

So there is a random disco ball texture in Thrive’s files?


(Untrustedlife) #12

Yep there is , it’s a long running joke

Probably still from the 0.4.0 april fools update a while back, where disco mode came from.

EDIT: though it looks different from how I remember it
