Re: Feature Request: Update POL Core to use the new book header packet.

I started to look at this. But from what i'm reading it seems like the change mostly just implements unicode support. I wondered if this was a good change to include in the UTF8 branch thats still outstanding as i believe that will simplify the unicode strings and not make the books more complicated...

Re: (server.cfg)(ip address) (going public) (friends logging into server)

Have you forwarded ports on your router?

You'd need to look for like a heading of "virtual server" or "port forward" or "services".

Feel free to jump on discord (if you're not already) and message me and i can try give you some help there.

Re: How to: convert array into string?

https://docs.polserver.com/pol100/fullfunc.php?xmlfile=basicem#CStr it accepts an array despite the docs saying it only takes a real or int. "stringified" arrays will still contain the curly braces e.g. var arr := array{"abcd","123",456}; will save as: { abc, 123, 456 } For example: use uo; use basi...

Re: Datafile.em and functions

As far as i'm aware the datastore has to be related to a specific package and you can't have for example a datastore named StaffDS if the package name is Staff and a StaffDS package does not exist. I wanted to have a package name where the function of the package was 1 thing, but the data that got s...

Re: Unable to find module at runtime.

In an effort of consistency shouldn't all the NPC functions also require an NPC reference? I know this would lead to a lack of backwards compatibility if you changed Say(string) to Say(npcref, string). But it would also mean that things like say could be dropped and the PrintAbove could be used in l...

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

My thoughts were similar to the second method, but a combination of the 2. A flag so draw could be turned off all together (if thats what people wanted). Then the other would be a flag that could be set on items if you wanted them to draw. Then people could use the onremove script of a corpse to rem...

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

Should it be a ssopt for drawing items on corpse, or An item property that enables corpse item drawing, so that when you move all the items from the characters equip to the corpse they are drawn then but not redrawn afterwards? If you come up with a design of how you think it should work, keeping in...

As request has been made to add a way to remove the core functionality of consuming ammunition from ranged weapons.
