Guess who

I'm back, hopefully for a while.

Where have I been?
School and a new job took me away.

I look forward to seeing all the old faces and meeting the new ones!

Re: Examples of Code Abuse

Lets say you have shield as a level 1 domain spell and its not a normal spell on your list. You can memorize shield as a domain in all 9 domain slots if you really wanted to. In fact some feats require you to memorize the spell a few slots higher to take advantage like silent spell and still spell. ...

Re: Examples of Code Abuse

Can you not memorize a lower level domain only spell in a higher level domain slot? Yes you can. To clarify, it's not considered abuse to cast/memorise a level 7 domain spell in Domain spell slots 7, 8 and 9. Now what is abuse is say a level 7 domain spell being able to be memorised in 2 regular sp...

Re: Apply_Ignite

Pretty sure there isn't. I couldn't find one in the bit list but... You could use a intercept prog, my favorite, on a command and have the item cast produce flame. The only downside I can see is that the player wouldn't be using the actual ignite skill and wont have a chance to advance in it. Robert

Re: Objects casting personal only spells on players.

Code: Select all

if objisworn($o)
cast shield $n
endif
Now just decide if you want an intercept prog on a command like protect or perhaps you want it in a time prog to go off at a certain time of day.

Re: Can't log on to the game

There is two things that I can believe to be the common culprit. Either AVG or the firewall the university is using. AVG: Turn it off by right clicking in the right hand corner and usually its exit or disable protection. If you can log in to the game now, then you know its a issue with the software....

They do different damage types. This will come into play more and more with recent changes that seem to be making their way in.

Re: Torches

I dont see why we couldnt add a program to items of type fire. I have put small fire out with my shoe irl. It could even be set up that if the room type is not outdoors that when you type extinguish you roll to take damage from the fire, albeit a small amount, wearing boots reduces the risk of injury.

Re: Program or Quest?... Opening a Door

PC A decides for some reason, quest related or otherwise, to lock the gate or unlock the gate. PC A types 'lock door' or something like that. At this point I want a check for a group. And possabily a strength check. If the PC is grouped I want the game to echo 'PC A lifts one end of the locking beam...

Re: A question on mobs and extra descriptions...

You can use exa_progs on mobs and use mpecho to be the extra lines of information, however this will list after the mobs equipment listing when using the exa command.

Re: Training bows and code abuse

I believe the point that it becomes abuse is when you are using a way around code to prevent the mob from entering the room to battle you. Like sector restrictions prevent mobs from entering certain areas. If I shoot a bandit while swimming on the shoreline the bandit would realistically enter and f...

I just want to pop in and say this: We do not need to rely on the builders or staff for quests or roleplays to reward low level players.

Re: Experience and Training

Ah, you are right, of course, about Express Deliveries. Any idea why the level 10+ restriction was added (it was actually not there initially)? Because some players ran several characters quickly through it, collecting 100+ platinum on each of those characters, then pooling them together for one ch...
