Judging by their posts, it will be when Hell Frozes Over :P or when I start flying.

Hello EQ Team.
Simple question. Are you planing to make script extantions like in ZVS H4Patch ? Those things like making heroes dead/alive, or getting info about objects - is quite usefull.

You skipped that explanation? ;)

(5) is a probability measure (highest), not a number of items. Number was given for some lines in [comments].

To-do list for scripts is several times longer than it is for objects, but it deals with bugs too. Yes, we are improving scripting. No, it will not be as advanced as in WoG.

Great news!

One more thing.. Will we see something like:
MoveHero(name,x,y); ?

or maybe bit easier:
CreateCreature (x,y,type,owner); ?

Thay would give a huge AI behavior improvment abilities.

Lost said, it's possible. But he has no idea when it will happen and how complex it will be.

One more object for campaign editor - invisible impassible object. Our mapmakers demanded it for their campaigns. :)

Desert theme - no.

It has always been this way. The same about scripting system - whole to-do list is gathered from mapmakers' demands. ;)

All of this is great information, perhaps it is time to say no more for now and release what can be done in a short amount of time (days or weeks not months). :D Save more for a 3.61 ;|

I agree it would be a shame not to have those objects, but perhaps version 3.61 will have them. I hope the reason is to speed up the release, that I can live with. :-D

So it looks it wont be soon. Sad.
Just imagine.. That could save human vs AI games. With it we could make a waypoints like in Counterstrike. What are CS boots without waypoints ? Just stupid bodies with no purposeful moves, yet shooting nearly enemies - just like H4 AI :) And with waypoints and thoroughly scripting for each map - the game will be fun like never before. AI that is good at capture/retaking towns and mines is only begining!
Dalai, tell Lost - he has a chance to reanimate our dummy! And Im realy hope he will.


2) And how about making heroes dead / alive?
3) Is it possible to make AI not to leave huge armies without heroes... or mabe it will be fine to let AI capture mines / towns without heroes?
