What are the 'required' pieces in the Standard Library?

Postby ElliotM » Sun Apr 15, 2018 6:26 pm

I've been wondering which pieces were 'required' from the Standard library and so my open ended question is what is the most minimal library you can have in Adrift 5 so that the runner doesn't crash when you start a game?

Not all games need the same 'pieces' from the Standard Library and I think it might be advantageous to have a Minimal library as a starting template to have alongside the Standard library. For example, Adrift 5.0 is intended for Parser Fiction but people have expressed interest in doing Choose Your Own Adventures (CYOA) in Adrift and having a minimal library would make it easier to recreate the CYOA style interactions while optionally building in some Parser Fiction components.

Here's one I prepared earlier (11kB)
This is pretty much the minimum, except for one extra variable called "Page".
