Spells can grant temporary powers.


so an example of this could in theory be that arcane spell that turns the mage into a warrior temporarily? because i can already see this being put to use!

version 1.0 of the Powers Framework has been deployed to the Testmud


What's the timeframe for 2.0? *duck* :)
Having said all that, the situation has been handled, so this thread is pretty much at an end. -Kossuth

That would be an extreme example involving adding many powers at once, but yes, that would be possible.

Here's the list of the first converted powers that will be coming in with the new framework. To reiterate, these powers will be available alongside their existing versions for testing purposes. In other words, "cast 'haste' touk" will still use the old Haste spell, but typing either "power 'haste' touk" or just "haste touk" will use the new version. As soon as we've validated that everything is working properly we'll start turning off the old versions of these powers and bringing more converted powers in.

A nice addition to this would be to let us edit the "ingame aliases" so they will save to our character. Is there a list of all these "ingame alises" that has been created for the current abilities?

That would be a nice addition, and we may do that in the future. For the current aliases, they'll all be viewable via the new "powers" command. With that command, you can list all of your powers and show info on them which includes the alias. Here's an example of what detect invisibility looks like on the info display. Note that the formatting and exact info displayed is subject to change.


Code: Select all

Name             : Detect Invisibility     
Alias            : di                       
Type             : Spell                   
Attack Type      : Auto                     
Source           : Arcane                   
Activation Time  : 6 seconds
Related Skill    : spellcast divination
Target           : Char Room
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=--=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Target Effect    : Add detect invisible for 10 minutes 


One other thing to note is that the aliases are dependent on your class. This means that a cleric and an enchanter could both have the alias "ha", but for different spells. For example, if the cleric were to use "ha" it would trigger "healing aura", but for an enchanter it would trigger "haste". This method helps cut down on collisions and allows a lot of flexibility.

That's weird - it shouldn't be affected by Powers. I will take a look though.
