Here's the updated version of Selena. Still has a lot that's needed to be done, but I'm sure I can get to that eventually. Maybe even tomorrow.

There was a minor issue, but it's been fixed, now.

^^ Looks good from what I can see. I'll have to test-compile tonight to check, but from skipping over it, it seems alright. Really looking forward to playing all those scenes when they're done :)

Same! All I really need to do, I think, is figure out how each version of Selena would act and expand on it from there... that, and figure out a better way to describe how she looks. : P

So I found a couple items that fit the bill for what I want Jack to be infected by... I want to run them by you guys, first, though, to make sure that they're alright to use.

First one, a bathrobe:

Second one, a set of footed pajamas:

If I am allowed to use them, which one would you guys suggest I use? : ?

Selena.rar

I'm going over the document right now and a few things I've noticed:

- When making an 'instead of navigating', you'll need to include the following right at the top to prevent errors:
Code: Select all
instead of navigating McDermott Farm Entrance while (hp of Anthony > 4 and hp of Selena is 0): [player helped the shepherds, Selena never met]
   if location of player is not fasttravel:
      say "You can't navigate from here.";
      stop the action;
   if location of player is McDermott Farm Entrance:
      say "You're already here.";
      stop the action;
   move player to McDermott Farm Entrance;
   ...

These will prevent the player from circumventing the normal navigation to get there from a non-nav room or to nav to their current location.

EDIT: Wahn has created a subroutine to handle these checks now, but you need to include it at the top of your alternate navigation rule. Please note, this will only work to check if the player's current location is fasttravel and that it is not the current room. If you have any other conditions or permissions, they will need to be included separately as above.
Code: Select all
to say NavCheck (CheckRoom - a room): [check if a nav attempt can go through]
   if debugactive is 1:
      say "DEBUG -> NavCheck just checked your travel route out! <- DEBUG";
   if location of player is not fasttravel:
      say "You can't navigate from here.";
      now NavCheckReturn is false;
   otherwise if location of player is CheckRoom:
      say "You're already here.";
      now NavCheckReturn is false;
   otherwise:
      if debugactive is 1:
         say "DEBUG -> ...and you may travel. Pass along now. <- DEBUG";
      now NavCheckReturn is true;


To be used like this:
Code: Select all
   say "[NavCheck Grey Abbey Library]";
   if NavCheckReturn is false, stop the action;
   move player to Grey Abbey Library;


- You do not need to put [line break] at the end of say statements that end in completed sentence punctuation ( . ? or ! with or without ' for quotation marks). If you end with one of those (no extra space after), Inform will automatically insert a line break. It's not wrong, but I'm just letting you know you can save yourself the effort.

- You use [if libido of Selena < 4]text A[otherwise if libido of Selena > 6]text B[end if] in several spots. Since libido of Selena being 4, 5 or 6 is a valid outcome, make sure all three possibilities are properly spaced/punctuated such that they appear correctly into the sentence.
Example:
Code: Select all
      say "     Selena is currently [one of]carrying an empty bucket to the milking shed[or]carrying a basket, much like the one she was found in, towards the fields[or]exiting the barn where Wendy is, [if libido of Selena < 4]guiltily[otherwise if libido of Selena > 6]happily[end if] licking her lips[at random]. You can see she's wearing [if libido of Selena < 4]a bright pink sundress that covers[otherwise if libido of Selena > 6]a form-fitting shirt and shorts that don't obsure any of[otherwise]a loose t-shirt and a skirt that partially hides[end if] the tawny, spotted fur of her arms and legs.[line break]";

For 4, 5 or 6, you'd get:
Code: Select all
...exiting the barn where Wendy is,  licking her lips...

with two spaces after the comma. The other outcomes would work fine. To resolve this, the additional space should be moved into the if clause so it only appears when needed.

- As well, since you've got a lot of the structure built, you might want to put debug messages into the various blank comments so you can start testing to see if the right stuff appears as expected.

If i'm not mistaken, I believe that he means to go through and put just a little message (DEBUG TEXT, ABABABABAB) like that in all of the scene/writing/text spots for your nerd, and then run through it ingame and test it out, make sure everything works.
