New Item Slots

I'm almost positive that this is hardcoded and therefore impossible to implement, but I still wanted to see what you all thought.

I want to shrink the two hand slots by one vertical slot, and shrink the chest spot to a 4x4, and make the two ring slots 4x4, move them to the bottom, and make spots for Pants and Cloak. (Since when has an adventurer gone on a long adventure without Pants?) I have the interface modded as such, and I have the new items in game, but I can't get the items to recognize the new slot types.

I figure, as they are "defined" in the ui section, I assume the resulting code that connects the two must in some way be skrit or similar, although I'm probably quite wrong.

I don't know, any thoughts?

Hi,

Hardcoded : Yes.

Impossible to Impliment : No.

More Information than that : irc.gamesurge.net on #siegetheday with x0r

Take it from Xmen, he know's his coding. Laughing out loud

So I got a basic prototype working for new item slots. Now there is a shirt and pants and belt slot. More news and some screenshots later ^_^

Sounds interesting... :thumbup:

Yup. Aaron's projects had me interested long ago, and I still am interested.

Thank you for the kind comments. I have the system working nearly perfect, the only glitch at this point is asthetic ( which is good because it means the functionality is entirely there Smile ) . As promised I have a screenshot.

Haha, it sure does.

Cool, x0r. I always wondered why one couldn't have a seperate slot for shirts and pants and why there where no belts....now I see one CAN have all those things, yay.

Did you also get the code working that listens to the drag and drop? I'm looking at doing the same sort of thing (shirt/pants as separate slots) and don't want to duplicate effort.

Also I note that you kept all the original slots as well as adding new ones. My tests seemed to indicate that you couldn't eliminate any original ones. Any insights there?

I eliminated 3 of the 4 ring slots.

I have a working prototype. Lara can now get nekkid one piece at a time!

To get here I replaced shields with backpacks, and amulets with shorts. The game is still treating them as amulets and shields, however. I now have to find out if I can make them additional, instead of replacement items.

Hey, I'm not sure how this works, but how can I allow a character to dual wield by default in their template? I was talking to firebat and he said just give them the skill, so I added this to the template :

	[actor]
	{
		can_level_up = true;
		race = human;
		[skills]
		{
			strength 			= 0, 0, 10;
			intelligence		= 0, 0, 10;
			dexterity			= 0, 0, 10;

			critical_strike		= 1, 0, 0;
			dual_wield			= 1, 0, 0;
		}
	}

Any hints?

thanks!

Looks right to me... that's what I did for the recruitable NPC in my_test_world. Smile

Check Eva's template - she gets that. I expect you have it right.

welp ... I feel like a n00b. Had to do with template specialization, whereas one of the leaf templates had redefined the skill component which overrided the base template :oops:

thanks!

Wow thats great!, Love the artwork too!
hehe cant wait for it to be done, btw how the heck did you get a lara croft type toon, ! O.O Reaper wants a laracroft type toon Plz tell this newb how too Lol

hmm * thinks Adopt a croft* hmm catchy
