Pc Respawn System

Hi all!

Im looking for a nice PC respawn system. One that costs the player xp loss and possibly gold. One that will respawn them in a location of my choosing. This is for my PW that i am currently building. Any thoughts or ideas?

 

thx

i don't know of a (ready) custom death system for Nwn2. I believe there are several for Nwn1, but if so they'd need to be subjected to a line-by-line review by an Nwn2 adept (before use in nwn2). And they'd likely need to be expanded to invoke such things as the Nwn2 death-gui

Here's sorta the lastest chat re. On Death/Respawn...

but It's ofc more complicated than that - there's even a hidden script that can run under specific conditions (unfortunately i forget what it is, but it took me ages to debug when M.Reider iirc, on the ex-bioware forum, posted that he had an issue with an arena-type area, and a variable wasn't 'taking' after death, but only under a very specific condition: something like if a Companion was the last PC-party member remaining in the arena...). I wish i could remember the name of that specific script, because it *can be* important for death-systems that allow PC to die while only the Companions try to save the day. (iirc)


personally i wouldn't want to try creating a generic/optional death-system for Nwn2. I believe it could (...quickly) get into modifying more than just the OnDeath/OnDying/OnRespawn events .... My OPINION is, the death system should really be done by a person who (1) has an understanding of and authoritative control of the scripting overall, (2) has a week or five for testing under various conditions that are applicable to that specific game-world.


with that said,
the link above addresses respawning at a location, and
introducing xp/gp loss would/could be fairly straightforward ... (eg. see the ApplyPenalty() function also in the linked thread)

Thx KevL.

I was noticing a lot of nwn respawn stuff but nothing for nwn2: Thx for the link you provided. I’ll check it out and see what I come up with: I know Marshall’s Legends World plugin may address this issue. His work is nothing less than outstanding. It’s not something I need immediately but was wondering if there was something out there. I will check that out!

thx so much for your reply
