    I grabbed the BBB update and took a look at how it is handling the Guzzlr gear. The character is out of turns for the day but I'm pretty sure that the problem will still exist, just to a lesser degree.
    When delivering for Guzzlr, even manually, I rarely bothered with the hat. The extra stats just aren't that important, for me, in aftercore.

    I think what will happen is:

    • I will run guzzlr.ash
    • Guzzlr.ash will equip what it wants
    • After the first combat BBB will equip what it wants and add the hat to the mix
    • Prior to the start of combat guzzlr.ash will take the hat off
    • Etc..


    I'll let you know for sure tomorrow.

    I don't see anything in guzzlr.ash about unequipping the hat. That happened with the old BBB because you had only part of the outfit equipped, so it kept maximizing for the parts you were missing without also specifying the parts you already had on. The new logic is smarter so if I had to guess, I'd say your first three steps are correct but after that you won't see any more swapping.

    This is what is now happening between every encounter during a Guzzlr delivery attempt:

    At the end of an encounter BBB fires with it's logic for what it wants to equip then, prior to the start of the next encounter, guzzlr.ash fires with it's own logic.

    Tangentially, I am running BBS and doing Guzzlr deliveries manually and I have never seen BBS attempt to change my equipment, perhaps because I have the Guzzlr outfit equipped and am manually changing elements (i.e. fledges) required for areas?

    The Guzzlr script evidently maximizes between every adventure with a default 'good things to raise' list and explicitly specifies a bunch of items to not equip, and definitely overrides whatever the player chose to equip. BBB tries to be much less heavy-handed by keeping the maximizer string as minimal as possible, and not calling maximize at all unless you're definitely missing a required item (which you will be, since Guzzlr keeps unequipping the hat). I think your request here for a control setting is justified but perhaps a request over there would be desirable as well -- if it's a script that runs the Guzzlr quest from beginning to end, does it need to maximize your gear between every adventure? Doubtful.

    For now, I've added a setting bbb_changegear (default true) to toggle all of BBB's equipment swapping. r40. It also adds more equipment changes for certain areas.

    @frono: I believe if you were to simply accept your Guzzlr quest and add a condition for +1 Guzzlrbuck, you could adv * <location> to complete the quest without bothering to change gear or acquire the booze (unless it's platinum). Or you could try "quest 3693; quest 3697; quest 3699" but that might only work for you.

    I made an outfit with the Guzzlr pants and shoes and wore that while I manually did 3 bronze, 3 gold, and 1 platinum delivery a day until I'd maxed out the modifiers on my Guzzlr tablet (and got enough Guzzlr bucks to get all the Stuff). I don't anticipate ever completing another delivery, thank the gods.

    I do use automation scripts - my own and a few of Ezandora's. Some of them depend on named outfits and some maximize, but I can't imagine why a script would maximize every turn (except Fernswarthy's Basement, which changes every turn). Once per execution or, maybe, once per zone, if you want to manipulate non-combats, say.

    But, as I said, I have no horse in this race.

    @Veracity: I'm still grinding through the bronze deliveries or I would have stopped too.
