"Base Script"

There has been a lot of things about custom floors and terrains, so it got me thinking: What if someone combined a set of most majorly useful new floors and terrains into a pack. This could form a sort of "Standard Scenario Objects" packs. Maybe we could get Jeff to incorperate it into furture versions of BoA. Since you would just be adding it into the preexisting stuff, it shouldn't change anything.

If you want to, go for it. I'm not sure that anyone would use it, though. Custom objects scripts are fairly easy to make.

Humm...I think the name was a bit of a misnomer. I was sorta thinking like a downloadable pack of additional graphics.

Well, there is the Louvre. It's not too hard to click on "Find All Records" and just wander through.

Okay...ahm let me try and express this better.

There are a set of base graphics that ship with Blades. The Louvre has a wonderful set of additional graphics. Now, it stands to reason that some graphics will probably be used more than others. If someone comes out with an increadible snow floor, or a sand floor, or an arms rack terrain, or perhaps a really useful new wall set, then it stands to reason that these things will tend to be used more than a highly scenario-specific customized unit standard, for instance, or some kind of limbo floor. Well, for the graphics that see a lot of use, wouldn't it make much more sense to make a sort of "graphics expansion pack" so that every time a scenario is downloaded, you don't have to download the same graphics? That way if my scenario uses a bunch of wierd graphics, but also a bunch of fairly common but non-original graphics, I can include only the wierd ones and make everyone else's life easier.

Ah, I see. Such a thing might be more useful in a few years as we know which graphics are getting used more and which less.

You'd still have to download the new standard graphics every time, since the mac graphics file format has them all in one file (ewww), so you'd have to download them along with the graphics that are unique to that scenario (or muck around with resedit)
