The CanAdv Project
What is it?
CanAdv is designed as a tool for scripters, meant to be imported into their scripts. After importing, you simply call can_adv(location, prep), and the function will return true or false depending on whether or not you are able to adventure in a given location.
"Wait, what's prep?"
The second parameter is a boolean that decides whether or not to actually prepare you for going into the zone. If you call can_adv(location, true) it will equip necessary items, etc. If you call can_adv(location, false) it will only check to see that you have the necessary items, and so forth. Generally, unless you plan on actually adventuring in the given location you should use false.
How to use it:
- Install it by pasting this into your CLI:
Code:svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/therazekolmafia/canadv/code/
- When writing a script, type "import <canadv.ash>" at the top of the script (without quotes). Also, ZLib will be imported along with CanAdv so you don't need to explicitly import it again.
- Enjoy using boolean can_adv( location where, boolean prep ) as an ASH function.
NOTE: Special thanks to Theraze for helpfully assuming de facto responsibility for this script while I was almost entirely focused on my combat scripts.
