Re: I need some input on dyeable furniture, specifically bookshelves.

I personally think it looks weird... but that means that _I_ wouldn't dye my bookshelves. I don't think it hurts anyone to have them dyeable, but players would definitely gripe if it is _not_ dyeable. My two cents :) I do too. I suppose I could make them dyeable and leave it up to the players. On m...

Re: I need some input on dyeable furniture, specifically bookshelves.

:D
So, I assume you would say "yes" to being able to dye bookshelves.

Does anyone else care to share your opinion? The Distro is a community effort after all.

I need some input on dyeable furniture, specifically bookshelves.

I am fixing and updating the furniture dye tub script and furniture that can be dyed. The issue of dying furniture didn't pose a problem until it came to bookshelves. First, let me explain how the bookshelves work in the Distro. When a book is put in an empty bookshelf, the OnInsert script is suppos...

Re: Announcing the POL Configurator!

In the POL root directory, there should be a starthere.bat for Windows users and a starthere.sh for Linux users, and a subdirectory named "batchfiles" that will help with some of the setup. The subdirectory is needed for the main starthere file. If you do not have those two items, you can get them f...

The scroll bars work on a 720p display from what I have heard but with your notebook, and my remote session, the scroll bars do not work correctly. I need to look at display scaling optio...

The intention for this forum is for scripters to submit packages or scripts that do not require modifications to be compatible with the Distro. Packages, whenever possible, should be drop-in and go, or "plug and play" if you prefer. Should a package require a special include file, then place that in...

Re: Starting gold is bugged.

Yes, the max stack is 60K but I was hoping to give enough starting gold that testers could buy a multi house and a boat. I will set it to 60K I guess. Maybe the boffins can add functionality to create multiple stacks if StartingGold is > 60,000.

Starting gold is bugged.

I wanted to give testers on the test server a large sum of gold. So I changed the StartingGold setting in servspecopt.cfg to 100000. When I created a character to test whether that amount would be created, a stack of 34,464 gold coins was created on the character. Obviously far less than 100,000 gol...
