Making soul crystals with scripted items. in Blades of Avernum
Infiltrator
Member # 1823

I think scripts will be erased from items at the end of scenarios anyway, so clearing the number won't be neccessary.

As a way around the targetting - I have a feeling that scripts may be able to see what monsters are in the vicinity (I remember seeing something like this in some of the geneforge scripts). What could be done, therefore, would be to get the numbers of nearby monsters, and then randomly select one.

Graphics Question in Blades of Avernum

Other terrain sets would have to be custom graphics - for example Quintessense (for BoE) is based in a diamond, with cool bluey kinda terrain.

Or the scenario designer could program the AI for a monster to sometimes attack magi/archers (acting cleverly, sortof) and sometimes attack whatever is nearest (acting instinctively) by generating a random number etc.

Personally I think that all the moderator who wishes to lock a topic should fill out a form. This must be then signed by all moderators, and then given a stamp of approval by the queen. Only then can the topic, which is by now is just burning, be locked.

The next spidweb game. in General
Infiltrator
Member # 1823

I think it would be quite cool to see a game with a slightly different or more interesting stats or magic system. The current 'get experience points and spend them on stats' and 'buy/find spells and spend MP on using them' is fine, but it would be interesting to see it work a bit differently. I like the way, for example, in the Final Fantasy series, theres always a different system for each game.

BOE->BOA Translating in Blades of Avernum
Infiltrator
Member # 1823
Profile Homepage #1
Personally I don't see how it would work. Transporting terrain data might be possible, with a few hiccups, ie. walls and custom graphics. Nodes -> scripts on the other hand I can see being a problem.

If there is a translator, I'd expect it to be very buggy, and far from being able to click, wait, and then have a BoA scenario.

In France, the kids drink real wine.
Although, however, I don't think that it isn't smart to not drink alcohol (of your own accord this is), and I very much admire t-totallers (I've never seen that written before, so I don't know how it should be).

If you're trying to say tha the only point of drinking wine is for the alcoholic content, then you're wrong. If I wanted to get drunk I'd drink spirits. The reason that non-alcoholic wine is useless is that it tastes awful.

Red wine is alcoholic, but it is not itself alcohol. If there were a way to move all the alcohol and preserve the taste, many people would be happy to have that pseudo-wine. Most people don't drink wine to get drunk, they drink it because it tastes good and happens to be a fancy drink. Liver damage isn't what they want out of it.
The problem is that the main taste of wine, as opposed to grape juice, is the slightly sour punch of the alcohol.

But what about drinking enough needles to not quite kill you, but to damage you. That isn't illegal. And am I the only one who finds the idea of drinking needles to be really quite bizarre? Or does 'needles' have a different meaning your side of the pond?

I'm surprised that nobody has commented on Dave's strange ideas about researching into making coffee less addictive. How exactly do you plan to do this? And then, even if this can be done, which it can't, then the same could be done with cannabis, cocaine and even heroine. But it can't, so that's moot.

And please, TM, don't think that David's religion is so much to do with his opinions on this - it isn't, and I found it slightly offensive.

On another note - don't you all think that jokes about sniping and scribbane are getting just even a little bit old?

1) :rolleyes: Avoidance of questions because they require you to either:
A) Denounce the entire basis of your religion
B) Admit that you are wrong.

2) Many lefties.

3) People killing other people, for whatever reason.

So, do we ban caffiene? And how about paracetamol? (unless you consider relief from headaches medical, which, come to think of it, everyone will). Or, how about chocolate, and the drug that triggers the happy hormone found in it. Hey, why not ban oxygen?! That could easily be considered as a drug.

Then we can all just sit back and watch the world being taken over by the mafia of coffee smugglers. :rolleyes:

There are already axes and maces. Blow guns will most likely be possible to create as well.

[/quote]You're thinking of Exile ADoS - there aren't any axes or maces in Avernum, although you could easily pretend that a sword was an axe.
