Title  Saju's All PC Dragon Wings Hak v 1.2
Author  Saju
Submitted / Updated  12-09-2003 / 06-17-2006
Category  PC Parts
Expansions  NWN-1.61
A special thanks to Noviere and Joco, who didn't directly help, but helped me understand how to do this. This is my first hak ever (wee...), and all it does is add the ability for HotU users to put any dragon race's wings onto their NPCs (or PCs, via ITP editing). This includes the standard NWN dragons, as well as the Shadow and Prismatic Dragons introduced in HotU, and Dracolich wings as well. These actually use all of the original Dragon wing textures without modification (which makes me wonder why BW didn't do it...), so the HakPak size is relatively small. The transparency of some of the wings is done properly as it should appear, and the Dracolich's wings are full of holes as well. I hope you all enjoy this.

v1.1 just gives the small addition of a txt file in the zip that explains how to add wings and tails to your PCs.

v1.2 I lowered the file size by ALOT with a very special thanks to Eligio for explaining to me how to supermodel wings. I have also added a pair of black devil wings, and made the download a RAR file. If anyone who uses this hak for some odd reason prefers ZIP, let me know and I'll get it back up, but I think its doubtful. The issue with the Dracolich wings sometimes showing up as silver still exists... if any modelers could help me out with this, I would be very pleased. Enjoy!

Update: 6-17-2006 - At long last, I slapped a zip up here. Guess it just seemed like a good idea at the time, heh.

Uh, some people prefer .zip because they don't have a program to extract .rar files. Could you please offer a .zip AND a .rar? (To avoid offending anyone.)

Aguia, sorry, I can't help you at the moment, I don't really have NWN installed anymore... *is shamed* had to make disk room for KotOR...

But, on a positive note, I was rather ecstatic to learn that this is in the CEP. Thanks Eligio, both for telling me how to supermodel, and including this in the CEP.

Great work saju, clean and right to the point!!! by the way, could u teach me how have u crated the black demon wings? i wanna make it in various diferent colors... i know i have to edit the skin... but where is the original skin file of the angel original wing? and how do i put the right skin in the right model... I have tried to rename your demon wing and use a colored version of its skin under the new wing's name.. well though in the game the charachter appears the right wing name it still gets your original demon wing skin... Could u haelp me on this? or anyone?
by the way sorry my poor englis ;D

Within the RAR is a txt document called "Adding Wings to your PCs". Look at that.


Posted by Its not working! ( ) at 2004-01-13 21:36:00    
I downloaded the file sucessfuly but wheres the file you said that tells how to add wings?

Posted by The Souless ( ) at 2004-01-09 06:46:00    
Thanks Saju! It works, your haks is great especially a lot "smaller" than the previous one without reducing the models' quality.

Posted by Saju at 2004-01-08 16:25:00    Voted 10.00 on 02/20/04
HUGE thanks to Eligio for teaching me to supermodel, I added a new pair of wings, and the filesize is currently smaller than the picture to view it!

The Souless: I never got this error but the newest version may have fixed this.


Posted by The Souless ( ) at 2004-01-06 22:50:00    
Nice work! I like this hak but there is a minor problem here. Every time I use this hak like creating a npc with the new dragon wings there will be an error file created in my NWN folder. The error sound " name differ c_wingdra c_wingdraxxxxx(whatever the new wings). However the error doesn't cause any problem in the game. Any ideas? Thanks.

Posted by Eligio_Sacateca at 2003-12-29 17:21:00    
This hak could be made considerably smaller if you deleted the redundant dragon wing animations and simply supermodelled all of the wings to the basic dragon disciple wing model provided with the game (yes, supermodelling works for wings - check out the bird wings which are supermodelled to the angel wings). E-mail me if you want more detailed instructions.

Yep... I'm going to try to find a solution to the Dracolich problem before releasing some other wings and tails. After all, I'm not really much of a modeler, so I'm gonna have to seek some help on this one.

Posted by Veldin ( ) at 2003-12-28 22:16:00    
Hey there Saju.

Did you get a chance to check out the Dracolich wings ingame?

I just tried again and I get the same transparency issue, yet painting down a dracolich itself is fine.

Hope you can figure out that issue. This pack really is very nice.


Posted by Thromm ( ) at 2003-12-17 19:01:00    
I just installed the hak and I want to thank and congradulate you on a wonderful piece of work. Great stuff! And you say this is your first go at modelling for NWN? I can't wait to see more of your stuff.

Its people like you that make this game so much more then anything else out there. Great stuff!!

Posted by Telstar ( ) at 2003-12-14 04:09:00    
I may be wrong, but i remember the avariel wings in hotu campaing being different from the bird ones you can choose in the toolset.

I think its the same model than the angel wings, but the avariel skil is different to both angel and bird: it has only the points in silver.

Posted by Saju ( ) at 2003-12-13 08:07:00    
Yep, thats actually what I'm doing, I'm extending it a bit and adding on the fins and spikes and such (there are 3 dragon tail models for the various races, ones without anything, ones with spikes going down the middle, such as the red dragon, and ones with fins, such as the gold dragon).

As for Avarial Wings, you seem to have confused me, are you asking me to make them, or are you just talking about the Bird wings that were used on the winged elves in the HotU campaign?


Posted by Telstar ( ) at 2003-12-13 08:01:00    
The Avariel wings in hotu campaign are like angel ones but light brown color with silver external feathers.

About dragon wings, the lizard bio model is pretty good, you could use it as base for the dragon tails you're going to do.

Posted by Telstar ( ) at 2003-12-12 04:30:00    
I looked at the hak and at hotu NPC appearances.
It seemed to me that to add new NPC wings models its just needed to add a model and an entry in wings.2da, which is great (a ALOT less work than what was needed before hotu and hotu wings looks a lot more realistic).

About tails I didnt asked because the only tail i want is the devil one that is suited for tieflings.
But if you are good at skinning and modeling, you could expand tails too as someone else asked.

About wings, it seems the Avariel one is missing. Its basically a hotu angel wing with a different texture skin. I know i could use the angel one for winged elves, but in the game, they looked differently and people expect to see those the same way in PWs.

Posted by Veldin ( ) at 2003-12-12 00:12:00    
is anyone else having problems with the dracolich wings? They show up as transparent in the toolset but show up solid metallic copper where they are supposed to be transparent ingame?

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Other then that this hak rocks :)


Posted by Ghostkat ( ) at 2003-12-11 22:33:00    
This is particularily cool as I'm doing many custom PrCs for my new project and have been getting ready to figure out this exact thing! I can now do a decent representation of more than just the basic Red Dragon Disciple. Among other things. Thanks!

Posted by Lockindal ( ) at 2003-12-11 20:40:00    
one thing is sure, this hak rocks.

Another thing is sure, we need more tails. I hope we get some soon ;)
