    Next TME will be posted on Jan. 24th. 2013

    Due to holiday's I decided to extend this TME

    Triggering Exercise # 8

    Quest Line

    In this "Triggering" exercise the objective is to create a Quest system using only triggers. No Sc2Layout. Quest system must have the following: The ability to add a quest, define who is the quest giver/ender, spawn/despawn units and/or items, rewards.

    Challenges

    Think of these as achievements.
    1. Make this into a library
    2. Create a Quest Log
    3. Add a bank system to track quest status

    Purpose?

    The idea is to make the mapper think outside the box.( <- This will never change... lol)

    Template Map

    No template map provided for this TME

    Neat :P

    We could use a quality and easy-to-use quest system. I can't wait to see what gets made :D

    Feel free to Send me a PM if you have any questions/concerns!

    @DarlD: Go

    Wewt, thanks for the extend. Even though I don't celebrate Christmas I had to restructure my code a bunch. Takes the pressure off.

    I am largely inactive, but I am still around. Feel free to poke me if you need some help, just be warned that I only really come back if I need help and/or if I'm posting a new map/library.

    Im working on a library called QuestLib, which i think would fit this exercise to some extent. You can download the outline here: http://www.sc2mapster.com/maps/hercmerc-project/files/18-questlib/

    Comments on what kind of features that you would like to have included would be of great help!

    Little question: does "only triggers" include galaxy scripts?

    Galaxy or GUI. Same difference.

    Hm, when is the next TME starting? Or how long does this one last?

    Every day I think that it doesn't make sense to start a quest system now, as, actually, the TME is over and could be closed the next day. So could you please say something about that? ^^
