Issues adding scripted behaviors to npcs.

Postby NhojisDEAD on 23 Jun 2017 03:08

As of right now, I am working on a mod with a ZRP base that has the goal of restoring(most) cut mutants. The method of doing this is a scripting based spawn and respawn system utilizing info portions and a bit of RNG. The issue, as indicated by the subject, is that I am having an issue adding custom attributes(currently an area of effect attack for a zombie variant) to npcs. For whatever reason bind_monster(or at least the update loop) doesn't work, so to work around this I attempted to add the npcs to a list and work through the npcs using a for loop, which failed. As of right now I am convinced that the issue lies somewhere in the script files respawn_mgr.script and mutant_able.script.

Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum NhojisDEAD.

Thank you for sharing your problems with us. But, on this occasion, we are unfortunately not able to download the script files that you put on internet servers and examine them.

While it's needless to say that almost "all cut-out-mutants of the release version of the game" have been so far restored by various mods, still, it may always be fun to try new things with disconnected (cut-out) mutants and re-activate them with custom attributes; however, as you rightly say that "For whatever reason bind_monster(or at least the update loop) doesn't work," there are far so many variables are in-check in the game, and your script may be correct in itself but it may fall into contradiction with some other -even seemingly obscure- files, creating a situation which only the modder himself deal by unraveling those files on the basis of the work done.

There are already a wealth of long discussions on the subject, please search this forum on relevant matters.

Remember when we were trying to get those first three mods to work together Nightwatch? What a nightmare but you finally got it to work and look where Stalker is today!!! =D>

Thanks for the response Nightwatch.
I was unaware that my scripts could be working in contrary to other scripts, though now it seems quite short sighted to have not considered that a possibility. I think the issue may be with where the script is being executed from, but I'll still be sure to read some of the other forum posts on the matter, as I lack knowledge and experience of many of the inner workings of the game, and any additional knowledge can aid in the further development of this project and the development of others.

Yeah, those were the days! You were one of the few who had started it, Rock, you pursued it with great determination, hats off to you, too. :salute: It was a great team effort.

Thank you. Everyone has different styles of course, but one of the things that I find works for me against hitting a block, is to start from the very beginning of that process. One change/input at a time, and try, if it works, then OK; until catching the contrasting input, then trace its connections in the files and deal one way or other.

The issue has been resolved. :mozilla_smile:
It turns out the issue was with the custom data of the mutants. Under the logic section, I had forgotten to define the active portion, which, after adding the omitted line, allowed for the mutant to register in bind_monsters.
Thanks again for your responses Nightwatch. I probably would have never noticed the error had I not of added a delay to the script's execution.
