I know I had seen it browsing at work in this forum.. but.. now at home and trying to apply it, i can't find it for the heck of it. I know it was a vauiable needed to be set on a creature.

I've managed to do it by adding this to the creatures onspawn script. It should work, but I'm hardly an expert...




effect eInvisibility = EffectInvisibility(INVISIBILITY_TYPE_NORMAL);

ApplyEffectToObject(DURATION_TYPE_PERMANENT, eInvisibility, OBJECT_SELF);

Yep, that'll do it. The variable you were thinking of was for stealth, I think - in order to have a creature spawn in stealthed you can set a local int called "X2_L_SPAWN_USE_STEALTH" to 1.

Replacing the first line with
Code: Select all
effect eInvisibility = EffectVisualEffect(VFX_DUR_CUTSCENE_INVISIBILITY);

will create an invisibility effect that can not be seen through with any means (like true seeing or see invisibility). Useful if the NPC is just a plot device, and not "really" there (in character).

Apply it as a supernatural effect and it can't be dispelled either.
