Thanks R2T1,

I am now in contact with Stefan, the guy who posted the request. BTW he is blind and he is the third blind player of my games I have been in contact with.

Re: Other systems?

Hey guys, should we really be pointing Lilith in the direction of other IF systems? As Lumin asks, what is her/his problem with ADRIFT? There is plenty of help available via this forum if needed. I don't see why Lilith has to ask about other systems on this forum anyway, a simple Google search would...

Re: A Return to Positivity

Thank you, Lumin, for your positive words about ADRIFT. I would echo everything you said and look forward to many more years of Drifting.

Playtesters Required for Mini-Comp game

Hi all, I have now finished my 5-location game for P/o's mini competition and need a playtester or two to run through it. It isn't very big and I can complete it in just 35 moves... mind you, I wrote it so I know the solution! :haha: Please PM me if you have a couple of hours to spare. Many thanks! ...

Re: nesting rooms

I have never, in the 10 years of using ADRIFT, heard of any technique called "nesting rooms", although other Drifters may have done. Don't forget that "rooms" in ADRIFT are referred to as "locations", so maybe you should be searching for "nesting locations"? Even so, I have never heard of that eithe...

Re: Using IF statement to change property value

I have no programming skills, so use Expressions as little as possible. Those that I do use I have asked more knowledgeable Drifters to provide for me, e.g. %Player%.Held(False).Count <= ?

As for IF-THEN statements, they are rocket science as far as I am concerned - wayyyy above my head! :haha:

Re: How do you kill a mummy ( the Egyptian kind, mind you 😉 )

great idea. I'll see if I can implement it. The scenario is that the player is inside a haunted house where he will encounter a number of "undead" that he has to slain. How about a swimming pool in the garden or basement of the haunted house? You could also weigh the mummy down with chains or somet...

Re: Using IF statement to change property value

Thanks for your reply. The reason is that I want the task to only raise the value of the property/variable by a certain amount, so that the player has to find another task to raise it any higher. Such a task might only become available once Arousal has reached 3, or might even lower the value if us...

Re: Using IF statement to change property value

Hello devileye, welcome to the forum.

In my opinion you are over-complicating this, although no doubt one of the ADRIFT boffins will prove me wrong.

Why not simply use a variable called Arousal? When the player performs the task you simply have an action in the task INCREASE VARIABLE AROUSAL BY 1.

Only one rule. Fire is not an option.
:anyone:
How about water in a pond/lake/sea, it would soak the mummy's linen wrappings and cause it to sink?

Re: Unlocking doors (illogical)

In this situation, I myself would simply create a general UNLOCK DOOR task with a high priority for this particular door.
