My current vision was to just list all the transitions, and show triggers in a tooltip or in a dedicated 'trigger box' when selection is highlighted. That way, you don't have to worry about dynamics of the dialogue. I'll try and draw some crude pictures in the near future.

(sure thing, but it will be some time - cleaning and defregging and doing wekly maintainance before retesting the tool to see if I still have the errors, and setting up for a series of fluid state tests - sorry for the delay!)

Sorry for the silly shortcuts - these are new and more robust replacements for IsValidForPartyDialog() checks, to determine if someone can actually participate or not. An NPC can be in the party and dead, and the game doesn't like making the dead speak out of turn... or at all!

~!StateCheck("myNPC",CD_STATE_NOTVALID)~ returns true if the NPC is fine, not silenced, not dead, etc., etc -
~StateCheck("myNPC",CD_STATE_NOTVALID)~ returns true if they are not fine, or have been silenced, or they are dead, etc.


and you just got the workaround anyway, by allowing a checkbox for "Who is in the party" . Just extend it to

"Who is in the party? Are they alive? Are they dead? Are they Silenced?" type stuff:

Player's Party (Tutu/BGT BG Content):
X Imoen X OK O Dead O Silenced O Not In Area
O Kivan O OK O Dead O Silenced O Not In Area
X SharTeel O OK X Dead O Silenced O Not In Area
O Kagain O OK O Dead O Silenced O Not In Area
O Yeslick O OK O Dead O Silenced O Not In Area
X Viconia X OK O Dead O Silenced O Not In Area

Player Conditions
O Male O Female O human O etc.,
to preview conditions...

hey, this is just brainstorming, you know - I don't even know ifit is posible to create a simulation routine which would do that; basically running the dialogue with preset conditions. The list


From what I can tell, global variables would be ok at least. As for the more complex triggers, I think it may be easier to start off with some of the simpler & common ones then build from there.

My current vision was to just list all the transitions, and show triggers in a tooltip or in a dedicated 'trigger box' when selection is highlighted. That way, you don't have to worry about dynamics of the dialogue. I'll try and draw some crude pictures in the near future.


Ok, thanks!

How about having an option on the large area map to apply an overlay that shows (it could be circles or squares) where all the area assigned creatures are placed? If possible read the attached area script if one exists and look for script created creatures these could be identified by a different color marker.

I would think this would help with npc placement as you would then know whether or not another npc was already standing where you were thinking of putting your mod npc....

Heya, this is my first post.

Anyway, was just surfing around and saw this, and I'm quite excited about it. I'm no modder (well, not yet. Might become. :-) ) but just being able to check out dialogue in such an easy format would keep me busy for a while. Lots of things I've always wondered about.


Keep up the good work!
