Game show some text when a corpse with imbuement items spawn

Post by Tarax the Terrible » 30 Apr 2017 11:33

im guessing at the minute for those on clients with the capability to use triggers
searching for imbuements when u kill something is done by a spammy shot gun approach?

eg

Code: Select all

trigger you killed
get coins from corpse
get gems from corpse
get unusual items from corpse
get peculiar items from corpse
get exotic items from corpse 
returned by the game 99 percent of the time as

Code: Select all

Get What?
The poor over worked gizmo would thank you surely if players stopped spamming it :twisted:

How about

Code: Select all

You killed the hobbit.

Something about the hobbit corpse strikes you as peculiar!!

maybe the message would only show for the person who killed it, to prevent teams and bystanders accidentally looting other peoples imbued items

I get what you're saying, but we typically don't design the game around triggers. ;-)

Someone told me <get imbued items from corpse> works
so that is a bit less spammy at least.

It will take me a while to be able to test it.
Dam drop rates lol

<get imbued items from corpse> does work I've used it as part of my triggers for ages.

Well our current options are.

1 Don't bother looking for imbuement item drops
2 Look manually
3 Build a quick blind trigger
4 Write a fancy script which can tell if imbued items dropped but u still need to look at the corpse to feed it with info
5 Request a lil quality of life upgrade from our overworked wizzies

Personally I do option 1 cus my trigs r such a mess currently.

U don't design around triggers for content sure. But, well u do kinda, for repetitive tasks eg guilds special ready to fire again. And a good thing too!
