I am playing Geneforge 3 and the main character and my creations go super-duper wholy moly speed but Greta and Alwan go the normal slow speed. Why are my characters going so fast and how can I stop them?

Did you remember to replace the edited gf3itemschars.txt with the original? That's the file where monster walking speeds are stored.

Yes I did. But if the speed is stored in there, I can change it. What is the normal walking speed?

For most creatures, it's 24.

Exceptions:
Ornks are 12.
Serviles are 14.
All immobile creatures (spawners, turrets, etc.) are 0.

They'd probably not move anyway because they probably don't have any directions to move. On the off chance that Jeff simply copied his code again (!), it would probably chase after you and crap out a creation every few turns.

I can't imagine what having pylons chasing you around would be like.

Like spawners, pylons have their own script. They don't move (at least in G1) when their walking speed is changed.

However, Dikiyoba did get some turrets to chase Dikiyoba's character around, and that was an amusing experience.

That sounds both amusing and terrifying.

Mobile turrets would be more fun. Now that might have made Avernum 4 more interesting. No more sitting outside of attack range and blasting them.

Admittedly the turrets are an awfully weak junior version of pylons, but they're an OK substitute for active guards or defenses when the terrain is constructed to their advantage.

Except in A4 they're a useless form of defense, since they have a shorter attack range than the player does.
