So I saw a question over on the Steam forum about changing the golem's tile, and it got me thinking, "Hmm, how would one go about doing that?" A few quick hacks later, :mrgreen: I present my new Reflected Golem addon.

The approach I went with was to add an extra feature to the Mirror of Reflection to change the golem's appearance. The tiles available to choose from are all the same ones available for the player on the character creation dialog, including (if I've done this right) any custom tiles added by the player.

[edit 2017-07-15: Technical info]
Code:
Hooks:
  Chat:load [to add our option to the Mirror of Reflection chat]

Frequently Asked Questions:

What tiles are available to use for the golem? Can I add my own tiles?
The addon uses the same list of custom tiles as is used by the "Select custom tile" option on the character creation dialog, and you can add your own tiles to the list in the same manner. For more information, see the "Use custom-made tile" button on the custom tiles list from the character creation dialog.

Is this a donator-only feature?
Yes, since it uses the Mirror of Reflection, which is itself a donator-only feature (purchasing the game through Steam counts as a donation for this purpose AIUI).

As you've probably heard, :wink: the 1.6 release adds a special new custom player tile to choose. v1a makes this tile also available for the golem. Because why not? :mrgreen:

Does this also work for the Portable Mirror of Reflection that was introduced with the Shimmer Packs?

(shrug) No idea; I haven't bought any shimmer packs. If it uses the same chat definition as the regular Mirror of Reflection, though (and I kind of suspect it does), it should work fine.
