Also, allow temporary area change to day/night lighting.

I think this may be tied into the server date time script, which I do not know if its been fixed.

I think in the past a dm did this or tried to and it put a kink in this.

I would think a dm created area would be a good fix to achieve this. Smile

It shouldn't. Time is seperate from area lighting. All interior areas actually are set to "night" lighting. Every area has day/light! It's just visuals. Time acts on its own.

I do recall something about time being messed with by a DM. However.. Day/Night area lightings don't conflict with time. Else all our interior areas would!

There are too many instances where this could be useful to add more areas. Just make a tool!

Friends,
We can make a lighting change tool (I think we have part or all of one somewhere here already)... it is true

DMs MUST NEVER CHANGE THE TIME IN GAME because our databases and scripts rely on time progressing normally - for example, advancing time could cause any number of timed actions to be skipped, later scripts/systems may then break due to things not being found as expected, and thus the snowball grows totally HUGE. Very Happy

Hence the rule : NEVER NEVER NEVER CHANGE TIME IN GAME.

Be well. Game on.

We have a lighting tool accessed by running a certain script. It can do the job, but the conversation ends after selection and only works for individual tiles, so you have to constantly restart it if you want to do more than one tile.

-Ability to remove item properties

Currently Adding this to Wand of Misc Tools.

Few can already be done...



-Ability to make placeables usable

##dm_runscript makeusable

(when standing next to placable, Dosn't work on static objects but will make most placables usable)



-Ability to change placeable names


/dm .tar OldNameOfPlaceable
/dm .name New Name


-Ability to change placeable descriptions

/dm .tar NameOfPlaceable
/dm .desc This is the Description here

-Ability to add feats to NPC

Can't directly modify feats of a NPC but can use Wand of Misc tools to Add "Bonus Feats" to an item and equip it on the NPC. Wand of Misc Tools can mark it as 'Undroppable' and 'Not Pickpoctetable'

Alternatively, and probably better method, choose a creature hide from the creator, and spawn it in the NPC's inventroy, use Wand of Misc Tools to add properties, and then use the Wand of Misc tools option to 'Equip Item' (cause for some reason NWN doesn’t provide a Equip icon on the Creature items)


-Ability to add buffs other than spells (attack bonus,temporary hp, etc.)

Likewise Wand of Misc Tools can add properties like Attack Bonus, etc to items.



Nice suggestion for the lighting tool btw, will add that...
