Custom Housing

Post by bodom » Tue Oct 06, 2015 5:54 pm

Hi again,

I am moving my first steps in custom housing and I have some questions for you experts :)

1. How is the house price calculated? Is is possible tu customize it?
2. Is it possible to add some items to the customization gump?
3. Is it possible to ban/gray out some items from the customization gump?

Thank you!

1: hardcoded in client, iirc it was 50gp / piece
Ofcourse you can charge as much as you want, but simply modifying the value showing in the gump is not possible without editing the client.

2/3: that gump is also hardcoded, but all the parts are in floors.txt, doors.txt etc in client folder ( Havent tried if it really removes items from the gump if you remove from those .txt files, but there are those flag settings aswell so you could play around with them check 0xB9 packet desciption for it )

The whole customhousing is clientside, on serverside its only placement and revision handling of houses

It is really good that you are planning for the custom housing. But I think you should get help from an expert about that as this task of calculating overall cost is quite tricky. Just because of this headache I bought the lavish condo in Dove mountain real estate.

Hahahahaha!

At least it's on topic, almost. I think the moderators should just leave the message but block the user simply because it's so funny.

I was trying to work on custom housing as well and looked at terciob's post about it but gave-up. Unfortunately I had something called "life" get in the way and I haven't gotten back to it.

Yep, life and developing sharing the same resource pool are definitely a bug we should aim to fix somehow :D
