Update to the Distro-Alt repo.

Post by Yukiko » Tue Jun 27, 2017 8:43 pm

Another step to bring the Distro-Alt closer to ToL compliance. It's still not even close but, as the rhyme says, "inch by inch, row by row". From the Distro-changes.txt in the Distro-Alt root directory:
Yukiko removed the prefix "ATTRIBUTEID_" from the skill attributes and changed the names of some like EVALINT and ITEMID to longer names, EVALUATING_INTELLIGENCE and ITEM_IDENTIFICATION. See \scripts\include\attributes.inc for the new naming convention. Updated the skills to include Bushido, Ninjitsu, Spellweaving,Mysticism, Imbuing, and Throwing bringing the skill count to 57 snd in line with ToL. Those skills aren't usable yet but I'm working on it.
More to come but my attention is now divided between the Distro-Alt, the "distro" upkeep/updating and two side projects related to "making POL easier to use". So things might slow down for a few on my work on the Distro-Alt.
Sincerely,
Yukiko

I thought I removed all references to Polearms. That was a replacement skill for Bushido I use on my server. I'll fix it. My thinking was a) I didn't care for Bushido and Ninjitsu stuff and b) that staves and some of the ranged weapons were better suited to a different skill than Macefighting, on my server anyway. I know why the error persisted now that I looked again. I had some NPCs using that skill and I forgot to copy the corrected npcdesc file over to my local copy of the repo because almost all of the work I did the other day was on \pol\pkg and some on \pol\scripts. :P

Repo has been updated. I am concerned about the errors you showed for the missing wrestling hit script. I don't get those errors on my copy of the Distro-Alt
