I just wrote some Pulpscript for someone who absolutely want to attach scripting functionality to walkable world tiles. In short, this can be done by hardcoding the coordinates in the player's
update event. Details follow.
First of all, the Pulpscript
if statement is limited to simple conditions, so I used a trick to combine the X and Y values for a chain of comparisons. This is not important if you only have one or two hardcoded coordinate values, but it is very handy if you have a ton of hardcoded locations.
// event_position = player XXYY event_position = event.px event_position *= 100 event_position += event.py
The next thing I did was assign a developer friendly room id to each room in the
enter event. I also renamed rooms with leading numbers to match. So, if my room is
012_sleepy_inn, then the
enter event looks like this.
on enter do room = 12 end
The next thing I did was gate world tile code behind the room id in the player's
update event. Obviously, you would need a block for each room with world tile event functionality. Putting it all together for a single room looks something like this.
on update do // one block per room if room==12 then // event_position = player XXYY event_position = event.px event_position *= 100 event_position += event.py if event_position==608 then say "Do something at coordinates 6, 8." elseif event_position==2010 then say "Do something else at 20, 10." elseif event_position==1604 then say "Another event at 16, 4.." end end end
Note that the same general hardcoded coordinate approach could be used to create something like sprites that warp the player when interacted with.
on interact do // one block per room if room==999 then // event_position = sprite XXYY event_position = event.tx event_position *= 100 event_position += event.ty if event_position==1205 then goto 12,5 in "001_first_room" elseif event_position==1612 then goto 21,13 in "002_second_room" elseif event_position==602 then goto 19,2 in "003_third_room" end end end
