NIFE: Equipment update 1/2
Posted: Posted February 24th, 2018 by Xhin

This is the first part of the Equipment update, that lets equipment be much more useful in NIFE.

  • This update makes it so that equipped items can't be moved, deleted or otherwise removed from the character they're equipped to without first being unequipped. This restriction applies to the Host as well.

  • These items can still be used in whatever capacity you want to use them.

  • Errors appear in Host panels, when a player does an action that would move the item, as well as in player panels.

  • Additionally, players receive a warning in the Crafting panel -- the item won't appear at all in their inventory but a message will tell them why.

  • In the Items Hosting panel, there's a rather obvious checkbox that lets you unequip an item so you can then do whatever you want with it.

  • Host errors have a link to the Items panel where you can unequip it.

  • Player panel errors have a link to the Equipment panel so they can unequip it.

    I'm not posting pictures to any of this because it's time-consuming, but rest assured everything is very visible and red.

    This update lays the foundation for the Equipment plugin. It's a bit better than my original solution because you can still use the equipped items without me having to hack them into every action manually.

    @Moonray: my aims here are to finish the Equipment plugin tonight, which should finish up the remainder of your requests and make NIFE v5 as well. The equipment plugin will be the existing equipment system with some upgrades, and the armor update we agreed on, plus some new features I thought of during the long hiatus from NIFE.

    It'll be tomorrow actually. I've got my notes prepped but it's going to take several hours to program and debug it and I really need to get up as early as possible tomorrow (since I work 1st shift monday).
