Clothing Macros

From Redwall MUCK
Jump to navigation Jump to search

To give yourself clothing, do the following:


1) use lsedit to setup a default description:


lsedit me=desc/default


All descriptions go under the /desc prop, and should be named. MPI parsing (embedded MPI) is support so break lines with {lit: } at the end to avoid run-ons.


2) Specify the first of many sets of clothing (currently only your default set)


+desc default


3) Set the code in your description property that will actually USE the description your wrote using the lsedit program that you set with +desc.

NOTE: this needs YOUR NAME where it says name, and the asterisk (*) MUST BE THERE. So, if your name is Otter, it would be *Otter...


@desc me={clothing:*name,default}


4) Build as many descriptions as you like doing


lsedit me=desc/name_of_outfit


5) to set a new description:

+desc name_of_outfit


Clothing MPI Macro

This macro is what the player puts into the @desc in order to cause thier select clothing to expand. It is traditionally put in #0, but can of course be installed in some other room, but it must be reachable up the parent chain for any player that uses it.


@set #0=_msgmacs/clothing:{if:{nearby:me,{:1}},{lexec:{prop:descprop,{:1}}},{lexec:desc/{:2},{:1}}}


NOTE: the above is long, and needs to be on one line


The usage of this is as follows: {clothing:*name_of_player,default_description}


Clothing selection command

This is the command the user invokes to actually cause a switch of clothing. Its usage might be:


+desc armor


To put on armor, and then to take it off...


+desc default


Note that if the game supports distant viewing (such as Redwall's @icdesc command or a wizard doing look *playername) only the DEFAULT setting will show.


To install the command:

@rec +desc

@action +desc=#0=cmd/plus_desc

@link $cmd/plus_desc=$nothing

lsedit $cmd/plus_desc=ldesc

.del 1 $

{if:{eq:{&arg},},

   {if:{eq:{prop:descprop,me},},

       You need to +desc  first.

   ,

       Your current description set is {prop:descprop,me}.

   }

,

   {if:{eq:{prop:/desc/{&arg}#,me},},

      You need to lsedit me=/desc/{&arg} before this will work.

   ,

      You store description {store:/desc/{&arg},descprop,me}{lit: }

      for the current description{lit:,} which is:\r{lexec:/desc/{&arg},me}

   }

}

.end

@succ $cmd/plus_desc={lexec:ldesc}

@set $cmd/plus_desc=w
