Toolset problems

PostAuthor: Nighthawk4 » Mon Aug 18, 2003 10:31 pm

I am trying to teach myself how to use the Toolset. At the moment I have two main problem scripts, one of which I have seen elsewhere. However, I can't get them to work correctly.
-----------
1) When a new character joins the module, all items are stripped and then certain items, plus some Gold and a level up are granted instead. The second part I can do successfully. However, I have seen this on another PW, where everything just goes at once. How is this done?

When I try it, I have a loop which gets the next item in the inventory and destroys it. This continues until the next item is not valid. All equipped items are unequipped first.

The problems are that this takes some time to complete and only loops about four or five times. So I have to use several triggers to repeat it, in order to ensure that everything is removed.

I did try using a check that the weight was zero before allowing the character to proceed, but one of the Avlis HAKs removes the GetWeight script - I don't see why.
----------
2) I want an NPC or an animal to patrol in a circle (not an exact circle, but a loop). However, when I select all of the Waypoints, it does not let me select the first one again to complete the loop. Therefore, the NPC or animal walks along the track, turns and walks back again.

Any ideas please?
Life is never as bad as you think it is, although that doesn't help at the time.

Ask JollyOrc what his results on the second one were. He was working on it.

I still say you could place the final waypoint right on top of the first one, then use a JumpTo command to restart the waypoint cycle w/o any noticable sprite flicker related to the teleport.

But I could be wrong.

For the first part, you could try something like this :

Code: Select all
void GetEquipped(object oPlayer, int sSlot){
    object oItem;

    if(GetIsObjectValid(GetItemInSlot(sSlot, oPlayer))==TRUE){
        oItem = GetItemInSlot(sSlot, oPlayer);
        if(!GetPlotFlag(oItem)) DestroyItem(oItem));
    }
}

void main()
{
    object oPC     = GetEnteringObject();
    object oMyItem = GetFirstItemInInventory(oPC);

    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_ARMS     );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_ARROWS   );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_BELT     );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_BOLTS    );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_BOOTS    );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_BULLETS  );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_CARMOUR  );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_CHEST    );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_CLOAK    );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_CWEAPON_B);
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_CWEAPON_L);
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_CWEAPON_R);
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_HEAD     );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_LEFTHAND );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_LEFTRING );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_NECK     );
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_RIGHTHAND);
    GetEquipped(oPC, INVENTORY_SLOT_RIGHTRING);

    while(GetIsObjectValid(oMyItem)){
            DestroyObject(oMyItem);
        oMyItem = GetNextItemInInventory(oPC);
    }
}


The second part... I think there has been a similiar post in which someone else suggested to teleport the creature to the first waypoint, just after it reached the last one. the first and last waypoint should be on top of eachother...

Im very new to the toolset and im just finishing up designing my house for my character. I just had one question that im sure has been answered somewhere, but i cant seem to find it:

I put invisible objects on the crappy tileset chairs that you cant modify (because they come with the tile) in order to make someone able to sit in them by adding the sitdown script to "onused". But, i noticed when i tested them that you always face east when a PC sits down in them no matter how you orient the placable. Anyone have a fix for this?? Or can it not be done??

It has to do with making sure the invisible onject actually rests on the ground. If it is off the ground at all, there are facing issues.

Yeah, what he said. Same goes for placable stools. Got to drop the invis object below them and add the sitdown script to it. Otherwise your stools face people east.

Which is why the stools in most inns in avlis all face east.
