@Moonray: (probably the only one interested at the moment)


At the top of your NIFE Hosting CP, you now have a link to add/remove plugins and one to view plugin panels.

NIFE Plugins are optional engines that extend the functionality of NIFE. Their control panels are stored separately from the main set of control panels to minimize confusion. Additionally, you have to add the plugin to your game before you can access its panels (or see shortcuts within basic panels).

  • To add plugins, simply click them and then click submit. You can also remove them in much the same way.

  • Your Plugin CP lists only the panels related to whatever plugins you have installed. Some plugins might have more than one panel to handle them.

    Character Talk Plugin

    In order to access this, you must use the "Add/Remove Plugins" panel to add the "Character Talking" plugin to your game.

  • This plugin allows you to use automatic actions to talk to characters, provided any of the visible characters have anything to say.

  • Asking a character about something makes that character post publicly with the "answer".

  • If you instead whisper, the character will tell you the answer in your journal.

    Posts with actions about talking or whispering can be hidden in stealth mode, like other automatic actions. If you do a stealthed ask, only your post is hidden; the asked character's post stays visible.


    This update is part of a larger set of updates in preparation for a game of my own I'd like to make with NIFE that has some people outside of GTX0 interested.

    it's all good until the NPCs become sentient and take over

    Also this "larger update" is now on hold because I've been off track and I need to refocus.
