Custom race question

I wish to make a custom race that dosn't need too eat. I need help with adding the not needing to eat part. What is the trait?

In vanilla angband it doesn't exist. Everyone needs to eat.

Ah, okay. No matter^^

Do you have any tips on where I can see all the bonuses that can be added to races?

I assume that basically any flag that can be set on an item, except of course for activations and ignore-elements, can be set on a race.

Which means you can add "slow digestion" to race. Not full "no eating", but less food needed.

Aha! Thank you, you have been most helpfull!

But, hm - can the flags be viewed on the web somewhere instead of looking through the objects.txt. Preferably with explanation on what everything does. I can't say I know what everything does, like easy_know or brand_fire for example. I hope I'm not being annoying for asking all this.

Not to my knowledge.

Firebrand means the object does extra damage against monsters not resistant to fire. I suspect if you gave that to a race then all of their melee blows would be branded with fire, much like an off-weapon brand. Easy_know means the object is automatically identified if you know what flavor it is -- this differentiates e.g. rings of Slow Digestion from rings of Damage.

Where did you get this idea? I mean, it's great, but is there any indication that it's currently implemented? AFAIK the PF_ flag series is completely independent of the OF_ series. So to give slow digestion as a racial or class trait, you would have to create PF_SLOW_DIG in the code.

I could be wrong though. I've never tried editing races.

True in FA - YVMMV.

Oh. I just assumed that they used the same logic since they have visually the same flags and that would be the sensible way to go (for most of the flags anyway). Oh, well.
