Seasonal Checks and Weather checks for perks

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a character that's resistant to the cold but vulnerable to heat.

For the perk, it gives an "aura of dapperness" (Helps other player's sanity) when it's Winter, that has a small glow to it...

Additionally, if it's raining or snowing during any season, they get a sanity and health regeneration...

I'm also unsure how to make them more resistant to freezing or losing health in the cold...

I can't seem to make these work and was hoping for help from this forum.

local master_postinit = function(inst)

	local function uniquehealing(inst)
		if TheWorld.state.issnowing then
			inst.components.health:DoDelta(5)
			inst.components.sanity:DoDelta(5)
		end
		if TheWorld.state.israining then
			inst.components.health:DoDelta(3)
			inst.components.sanity:DoDelta(3)
		end
	end

	inst:DoPeriodicTask(10, uniquehealing(inst))

	local function winterlove(inst)
		if TheWorld.state.iswinter then
			inst.components.sanity.dapperness = TUNING.DAPPERNESS_HUGE * 2
			inst:AddComponent("sanityaura")
			inst.components.sanityaura.aura = TUNING.SANITYAURA_LARGE
			inst.entity:AddLight()
			inst.entity:AddNetwork()
			inst.Light:SetFalloff(0.7)
			inst.Light:SetIntensity(.5)
			inst.Light:SetRadius(5)
			inst.Light:SetColour(0 / 255, 200 / 255, 110 / 255)			
			inst.Light:Enable(true)	
		end
	end

and

	inst:DoTaskInTime(0, uniquehealing)

	inst:WatchWorldState("startrain", function()
		uniquehealing(inst)
	end)
	    
	inst:WatchWorldState("stoprain", function()
		uniquehealing(inst)
	end)

	inst:WatchWorldState("startsnow", function()
		uniquehealing(inst)
	end)
	    
	inst:WatchWorldState("stopsnow", function()
		uniquehealing(inst)
	end)

	inst:DoTaskInTime(0, winterlove)

	inst:WatchWorldState("startwinter", function()
		winterlove(inst)
	end)
	    
	inst:WatchWorldState("stopwinter", function()
		winterlove(inst)
	end)

To help players resist cold better (or protect against overheating) is not an easy task in this game. All you can do, really, is mess with their insulation variables, since they're the only variables affecting cold and heat, but they don't work like you want them to. Take a look for yourself in the temperature.lua (specifically the DoDelta and Update functions and the variables available to play with), and you'll see what I mean.

I'd like some more information about the problem. Does nothing work? Does it crash?

You can figure out a lot of things for yourself, if you put in some print-statements and check your logs. That'll help you figure out which listeners work and when they're triggered, and you can print out names of affected players etc, so you can see exactly what is happening. You can read about how to use print-statements in this post under the Debugging paragraph.

According to this...

[00:01:00]: It is Winter!	
[00:01:00]: component sanityaura already exists!	../mods/tagu-DST/scripts/prefabs/tagu.lua:66 in (field) fn (Lua) <62-69>	
[00:01:00]: Deserializing tile data (425 x 425)
[00:01:09]: Registering master server in US lobby

It seems that my "Winter-Check" is Working, and the Aura is working as well?

Also, I did what you said and made them resistant to the cold via the insulation variables, and in Winter, it seems that my character is not freezing or getting the freeze screen. so success...?

I don't know how to make the GLOW work though for the aura, since that line crashed my game.

-----

Edit: It also appears the healing gained from the snow and rain only applies once... I was hoping it would give 5 health every 10 seconds while snowing, and 3 health every 10 seconds while raining

Good! Something is working, then :) Print-statements are REALLY helpful!

There are some discrepancies in your code compared to what you're actually trying to do.

Only the winterlove function needs to be activated/deactivated when the worldstate changes. Since you call a DoPeriodicTask(10, uniquehealing) uniquehealing is going to be called every 10 seconds anyway, and it internally checks and reacts to the worldstate. No need to watch the world state to activate that. However, it might be nice to stop the uniquehealing periodic task, when it is not supposed to be running, but let's put that on pause for a minute. That's an easy change at the end.

First, remove any inst:WatchWorldState with uniquehealing in it, and the line inst:DoTaskInTime(0, uniquehealing).

Then look at what you've got.

  • uniquehealing is called every 10 seconds, due to the DoPeriodicTask(10, uniquehealing(inst)) line

  • winterlove is called every time the "startwinter" and "stopwinter" states/events are pushed by the game. Look at what you're doing in winterlove(). If it is winter, you do some things. You never reverse these things. You should make a winterlovestop(inst) function, which rolls back your changes when "stopwinter" runs. If you keep winterlove(inst) as it is, you can still use it by calling it in postinit, because it only does things if the right state is active. Then your winterlovestop(inst) doesn't need to check the state, you can just remove the light- and sanityaura-components (or at least disable them. I know the light can be disabled. The sanityaura might as well just be removed)

Put a print-statement in your uniquehealing function, to see when it is being called, and put another print-statement in both if-statements so you can be sure that they are entered when they should be.

local master_postinit = function(inst)

	local function uniquehealing(inst)
		if TheWorld.state.issnowing == true then
			print("It is Snowing!")
			inst.components.health:DoDelta(5)
			inst.components.sanity:DoDelta(5)
		end
		if TheWorld.state.israining == true then
			print("It is Raining!")
			inst.components.health:DoDelta(3)
			inst.components.sanity:DoDelta(3)
		end
	end

	local function winterlove(inst)
		if TheWorld.state.iswinter == true then
			print("It is Winter!")
			inst.components.sanity.dapperness = TUNING.DAPPERNESS_HUGE * 2
			inst:AddComponent("sanityaura")
			inst.components.sanityaura.aura = TUNING.SANITYAURA_LARGE
		end
	end

	local function winterlovestop(inst)
		if TheWorld.state.iswinter == false then
			print("It is not Winter!")
			inst.components.sanity.dapperness = TUNING.DAPPERNESS_HUGE * 0
			inst:RemoveComponent("sanityaura")
		end
	end

	inst:DoPeriodicTask(5, uniquehealing(inst))

	inst:DoPeriodicTask(5, winterlove(inst))

	inst:DoPeriodicTask(5, winterlovestop(inst))

and

	inst:DoTaskInTime(0, winterlove)

	inst:WatchWorldState("iswinter", function()
		winterlove(inst)
	end)

	inst:DoTaskInTime(0, winterlovestop)

	inst:WatchWorldState("issummer", function()
		winterlovestop(inst)
	end)

 

With this setup winterlove and winterlovestop are working fine.... I think....

However, UniqueHealing won't heal or print at all... and I'm still not sure how to get it to heal each 10 seconds while it's raining...

You're missing some important print-statements.

	local function uniquehealing(inst)
		print("uniquehealing function was called!") -- this one, to make sure it runs at all
		if TheWorld.state.issnowing == true then
			print("It is Snowing!")
			inst.components.health:DoDelta(5)
			inst.components.sanity:DoDelta(5)
		end
		if TheWorld.state.israining == true then
			print("It is Raining!")
			inst.components.health:DoDelta(3)
			inst.components.sanity:DoDelta(3)
		end
	end

If uniquehealing IS called, but doesn't enter any of the if-statements, try printing the actual world state e.g.

print("TheWorld.state.issnowing: "..tostring(TheWorld.state.issnowing))
print("TheWorld.state.israining: "..tostring(TheWorld.state.israining))

If you have a DoPeriodicTask which calls uniquehealing, and uniquehealing is never being called, then there must be something wrong with your implementation.

Please zip up your entire mod and attach it to a reply here, so we can have a look.
