Re: Bulletin Boards

Going to look at a couple bugs encountered and hopefully have an update soonly.

Need to finish up another minor rewrite I started before I jump back into here but that should be done easily tonight if I can figure out the issue I am having.

Bulletin Boards

Probably most shards have bulletin boards, this however uses the packethook stuff to handle the bulletin boards, 0x71 . There are somethings that I might have been able to do differently and I consulted another emulator for some additional information I could not manage to find elsewhere. I did abou...

I'll post this here too, this is a very useful link to help you on the design aspects of a quest system. It describes the types of systems out there and their pros and cons as well as the types of quests.

Arrays and the Stuff Contained in the Squiggly Lines

First, just a general note, the squiggly lines while the general term for parenthesis, the squared things and the squiggly things I have been informed is braces for all three combined (at least that is what it is in the lexer I use and modified for escript as well as a C# book I am reading through),...

Re: Script optimalization, possible to auto delete unused vars?

In terms of unused variable names: When it comes to escript, I can not tell you whether they are harmful. When it comes to auto removing unused variable names, there is no way to currently remove them other than going through each script 1 by 1, little by little. Most people I imagine ignore the unu...

Re: Another new UO module function - ListObjectsInBoxByPolClass

At this rate, we can just combine all the "ListObjectsInBox" functions into a single function with an additional parameter of behavior :D, I am kidding of course.

Re: Item decay control script?

You also have additional control of the decay system and specifically preventing items from decaying. With the CanDecay syshook, you can use a myriad of conditions from preventing an item from decaying when the trash collection rolls around. This is handy if for instance you want to have a static ho...

Re: [pol100] how to hide equipped items on dead corpes

I will say this about the storage area work around, the thing to remember is that if this method is used, your corpses will auto close when they are open if the player moves at all. As a player I would find this exceptionally annoying and more annoying than the corpse dressing itself. I intend to lo...

I'll if you are interested, sit down and see if I can come up with a non storage area solution, I have an idea how to but it will require a number of changes to your equip and unequip scripts as well as changes to your death and corpse on remove and on insert scripts and potentially others unless I ...

Re: Smurfen Turf

You are welcome. If you store an array of serials in the cprop for #Smurfed, this definitely would be useful for an objective type system and on an npcs onenter event just check the mobiles serial against your array. I wish we had a way to put in player onenter/please events because not just for thi...

You can assign a use script to the corpse, it's definitely a special item, but there's nothing stopping you from assigning it a use script because you have to if you want to utilize the party system can or cannot loot me. Or if you want to prevent a player from looting mobs that weren't killed or da...

Re: [pol100] how to hide equipped items on dead corpes

If you are referring to the equipment on say a human corpse, in other words if a human mobile (player or NPC) dies and is wearing full plate mail at the time of death, his corpse will be 'wearing' the plate mail as well. If this is what you are referring to you have two options and the easier of the...
