Sanity gain from nearby structures


Recommended Posts

I'm making a character and my plan is for him to have a constant sanity drain, and then gain sanity depending on nearby player built structures. However I don't know how I would implement this on the character side as opposed to making every structure have a sanity aura. Any advice or tips is welcomed

local function machinelover(inst)
	if inst:HasTag("playerghost") then return end
	if inst.components.health:IsDead() then return end --if dead then this will not work
       if not (inst and inst.components.sanity) then return end --if having no sanity somehow then it will not work

	local x,y,z = inst.Transform:GetWorldPosition()
	local pt = inst:GetPosition()
	local range = 8
	local tags = {"structure"} --find "structures"
	local num_structures = 0
	local check = TheSim:FindEntities(pt.x,pt.y,pt.z, range, nil, nil, tags)
	
	for _,v in ipairs(check) do
		num_structures = num_structures + 1 --counts every structures close to your character
	end
  
	inst.components.sanity.dapperness = TUNING.DAPPERNESS_SMALL * (-1  + (0.5 * num_structures))
    --starts with sanity drain, but if close to more than 3 structures, your character will gain sanity
end

Add this function in your character.lua and

inst:DoPeriodicTask(5, machinelover)

add this line to your character's common_postinit.

 

Value is set very low because you can have lots of chests.

or, you could set max cap using math.min.

Also, this will not count walls, fences, mini signs(arrow sign or big one will still work).

And, unfortunally, this will count naturally spawning pig houses, merm houses etc. because they also have "structure" tag.

Not sure if this is the correct way to reply to a message but I just want to say a huge thank you for this.
