What would you like to see in GMCP?

Title says it all. What would you like us to broadcast to you through GMCP? I can't say yes to every request, but I'd like to at least know where your ideas are.

Already on the list: Whether a room is indoors.

    An alternate version of wielded... wield_right_short that just declares the root item (as it appears on info here) without the number... so 'scimitar' instead of 'scimitar136278. This would make weapon checking a lot easier without having to update every time a weapon decayed,

    Spark and Devotion level would be great, as would charge_left and charge_right (right now we capture via prompt)

    A stringlist that shows the players in a room akin to the way exits is displayed.

    Spiritwrack balance.

    golem information!  EVERYTHING!  would even be nice if it would send out if the golem is on or off balance and the time to recover as well.  heck I would go as far to ask to have what criteria was used by the Golem function to use the attack it decided to use on balance!  (that is more for testing and OCDness!!)

    This is (somewhat) already available though in gmcp.Room.Players and the accompanying events.

    Better weapon info. I sent a message a while back detailing it.

    I told you you were going to regret making this thread!
    • Comm.Channel: The information in Comm.Channel feels incomplete. The Start and End events return identical information. Perhaps Start could be the channel name (as it is currently) and End could be the message contents?
    • Comm.Channel: Capture emotes, yells, and shouts. Players could finally have a complete and comprehensive channel capturer without resorting to things like weird colors.
    • Vitals: Certain Gods-only defenses and things that we are currently able to put into our custom prompts would be awesome to have in the Vitals list.
    • CombatMessage: A field for which limb you hit on an appropriate attack. Or alternatively, work that into the attack name, though that's a bit clunky.
    • Items.List: Killing a mob should change the name of the mob to "a corpse of <mob>" and remove the "m" attrib.
    • Items.List: Additional attribs for shrines, sigils, guards.

    From small ideas which seems a good idea to do!

    gmcp.Char.Skills.Groups - shows, class, mini, and all other skills such as crafting general, mercantile etc but... it doesnt show ENDGAME unless you do, raceskill list...

    Can we please add endgame skills to this list ^ maybe in a 'endgame' part and it just list which ones you hold/have .... Would make coding soo much easier for them who like to track endgame skills


    -- My own

    Can we make RIGHT_ARM and LEFT_ARM balances work right? At moment they kind of iffy and one seems to work and other doesnt now and again just because if both are regained at the same time the first one always shows false even tho its true :/

    -Whether you are currently galloping through a room.
    -Whether a room is flooded. Aquasphere too maybe.
    -Following/being followed though hide stalking and such unless someone checks ent/group
    -Allies/enemies
    -Elixlist/syringelist though this may be a lot. Maybe a request type thing.

    Somethings with more combat implications.
    -Whether you are currently restoring a limb and which limb is being restored (last resto appication).
    -Along these same lines, last herb/salve/drink/pipe used (that consumed bal).
    -Whether you are currently writhing already to cure something
    -A 'cured' event for whenever you get 'You have cured whatever'. Perferably sent after gmcp.Char.Vitals.

    - Indoor/outdoor.
    - Mounted.
    - Level - Presently the way it presents it does in a way that capturing is very difficult. Just a straight number would be perfect.
    - Race
    - Leg balance (Cobra stance) - Or please just make it all one balance..ugg its so annoying.
    - Flooded room or not (as was mentioned)
    - Parry location.
    All I have for now.

  • OmeiOmei Member, Immortal Posts: 751 Immortal
    Level and Race are actually passed to Char.Status. Capturing the level itself is a cinch: if you're on Mudlet, it's string.match(gmcp.Char.Status.level, "^%d+")

  • SaybreSaybre Member Posts: 283 ✭✭✭
    My bad on Race!

    Level though, I guess I'm just derping on how to grab it for cMud. I capture all of Char.Status into a database, so it relays as "133 (68)" because it shows the rounded Xp value too. I might just be doing something wrong.

    Whether or not the crystal tattoo will heal damage when it's touched. I thought it was in gmcp.Char.Vitals.renew, but I don't see that changing when I use the tattoo.

    Vampire mending if it's not captured elsewhere.
  • XavinXavin Member Posts: 1,422 ✭✭✭✭✭
    char.vitals.renew is for endgame aff curing.

  • FerrikFerrik Member Posts: 189 ✭✭✭✭
    - Level of crocodile awesomeness.

    - All the different balances. (like stated before, but also including 'specials' like shadow)

    - Everything Saybre just asked for because I can scroll up.

    Anything that resides as a config option would be an AWESOME addition to GMCP. I could have my system auto check certain things and warn/auto swap necessary game configuration items if I had a reliable way to read them.

    ^^ Also, the config damage_change to be a GMCP ... so we wouldn't have to turn it on just use the GMCP to catch what health etc was lost to save on all the mana spam!

    @Oleis This might be a strange request but I guess its meant for this...

    At present GCMP has a right_arm and left_arm balance... can we get it tied into the Balance gmcp?

    so say you get balance back (monk) and still of left_arm and right_arm youd still be of balance gmcp til both arm balances have regain? As I've noticed a few issues with right_arm/left_Arm balances regaining wrong.

    example:

    ====================== ARM BALANCE RETURNED (left arm) ======================
    ====================== ARM BALANCE RETURNED ======================

    ^^ no prompt and both recovering together but clearly stating one of them is of balance.... :/

    The usefulness of GMCP is in giving you flexible and expansive information. It's meant to reflect your state in the game as accurately as possible. It's up to the user to employ good coding practices to make the most of this information.

    If the balance issue is throwing you off, try something like this:
    function onBal()
       if gmcp.Char.Vitals.left_arm == 0 or gmcp.Char.Vitals.right_arm == 0 or gmcp.Char.Vitals.balance == 0 then
          return false
       end
    
       return true
    end

    When someone dies
    gmcp.Room.RemovePlayer
    doesn't seem to be called.

    Granted, I haven't turned on debug mode in a fight to find out for sure, but my player tracker always leaves dead players in the list until I do something to trigger a resend of gmcp.Room.Players

    I know that is probably a bug, and should be bugged - and I probably will when I get home tonight - but it seems reasonably appropriate to mention it here as well. I only worked it out last night.
  • NalorNalor UKMember Posts: 774 ✭✭✭
    ^^ also the same for when a mob enters and leaves.. You have to use QL to update it

    Can we get a GMCP for the room we entered a haven in? Might be too much to ask for but it might be a neat thing to have :)

    I think info on people/things in room only updates when entering/things enter or when you look. It's probably meant to make stealth abilities actually work.
