Today, I am here to suggest an upgrade to signs.
Right now signs are great, they can be written on with code and read by the code… mostly.
You see, while there is a way to read a sign, the code doesn't distinguishes the different lines, and even if it was the case, there is one more issue : the code can tell if a text matches but it can't give you the text written on it. So here are the 2 things that I suggest :
- Give more accuracy to the If Game "If Sign contains Text"
Add an optional number that asks for which line to check, no number means "Check every line"
Location - Sign location
Text - Text to check for
Number* - Specific line to check (1-4)
- Add a "Set Variable to Line # of Sign"
Set to Text on Sign
Dynamic Variable - Variable to set
Location - Location of the sign
Number - Line to use
Now you may ask "Why do I ask such a random addition ?", it would allow us to make data tables make "variables" in different slots that are more organized and less hard to check than with "/plot vars".
Hope you find my idea interesting.
