Setting item name on creation

Post by itec » Wed Feb 18, 2009 4:12 pm

As I'm encouraged in the development's current direction, I bring this topic up as there are currently no right way to set name for custom items. I think this is one of the more essential missing features in Pol.

Setting item name on creation:

Code: Select all

var desc := GetItemDescriptor("bench");
desc.color := 250; // just like settings a color
desc.name := "new name"; // this should work too
CreateItemInContainer(who.backpack, desc);
This feature is espescially needed when you are creating complex item systems.

Will look into the methods that could be used (name and desc) and see what we can do. Spending today updating AOS Resistances with a touch more core support (dice roll ability from Itemdesc and GetItemDescriptor()) and also looking at adding initial Luck and such today (without the full followers support I have designed, as that will take a lot more work for my methods).

While I am working on the Descriptor for items, will look at the names and all. So that means, will be looking at this request probably tonight sometime, or later in the weekend.
