Scripting to automatically put up Barkskin

    [​IMG] My scripts are getting more and more complicated, and I've been able to work out how to do most of the stuff I want within the constraints of the BG2 scripts, but I'm stumped.
    I want my clerics / druids to put up Barkskin when certain conditions are true. I've already got something similar for mages with Blur and Mirror Image, but there doesn't seem to be the same attributes for Barkskin as there are for the above-mentioned mage spells.

    For clarification, the mage spells (for a fighter/mage) are this:

    // * Keep up stoneskins
    IF
    ActionListEmpty()
    HaveSpell(WIZARD_STONE_SKIN)
    CheckStatLT(Myself,1,STONESKINS)
    THEN
    RESPONSE #100
    Spell(Myself,WIZARD_STONE_SKIN)
    END

    // * Blur if no Mirror Image
    IF
    ActionListEmpty()
    HaveSpell(WIZARD_BLUR)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_BLUR)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_MIRRORIMAGE)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_INVISIBLE)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_SILENCED)
    Range(NearestEnemyOf(Myself), 10)
    HPGT(NearestEnemyOf(Myself), 50)
    THEN
    RESPONSE #100
    Spell(Myself,WIZARD_BLUR)
    END

    // * Mirror Image if no Blur
    IF
    ActionListEmpty()
    HaveSpell(WIZARD_MIRROR_IMAGE)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_BLUR)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_MIRRORIMAGE)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_INVISIBLE)
    !StateCheck(Myself,STATE_SILENCED)
    Range(NearestEnemyOf(Myself),10)
    HPGT(NearestEnemyOf(Myself),50)
    THEN
    RESPONSE #100
    Spell(Myself,WIZARD_MIRROR_IMAGE)
    END

    Druid Ironskins works off the same CheckStat (STONESKINS), so that bit's fine. Looking through the IDS files, I've found CLERIC_BARKSKIN in spells.ids, but not in stats.ids, so I take it I can't use 'CheckStatLT(Myself,1,xyz)' where xyz = the appropriate term for Barkskin (CLERIC_BARKSKIN? BARKSKIN?)... or can I?

    Perhaps this is better suited for a modding forum like Gibberlings3?

    This is the whole reason why Detectable Spells was created; you can not detect the presence/effects of many spells by default. Many spells are modified to leave detectable stats on creatures (though they do not affect gameplay) so that scripts can react more intelligently to a creature's active protections.

    Thanks people, I'll give Big Picture Detectable Stats a go...

    @Shaitan - I'm not modding, these are scripts for my party. I've not even completed the game once yet - first run through got as far as the dragon in Chapter 6 before deciding duelling a kensai to a thief at level 21 meant I was facing baddies too tough for a level 12 thief to handle, just exited the Underdark on my second character. I hate having to pause, cast the first set of buffing spells, pause, cast the second set of buffing spells, and so on - it's much easier if the script does the work for me and, in an RP sense, it's the party getting more experienced and knowing when to cast protective spells ;) If, however, there's a more appropriate forum, please post or PM me the URL.

    Ay - I just thought that an answer was easylier acquired at a modding forum...

    You can google Gibberlings3.net :p

    I recommend a nerf of the skins, IMHO they are too much. But that's just me

    If you're looking for party scripts, you could give cirerrek's eSeries a spin (or alternatively, use large chunks of it for your own project).

    [​IMG] Shaitan, there's little that he can't get an answer to on our forums, considering a number of experienced modders frequent them, so I'd reserve recommendations of other sites for when it's really clear than no one here has anything whatsoever to say on the matter. This means waiting more than 1 hour after the original post. I have no problems with giving out links to other sites when it's prudent, but I've noticed you doing it prematurely on several occasions.

    Try SCRIPTINGSTATE5, but I am not very sure, because my BG2 hasn't been pure for a long time. Anyway, having a try does no bad.

    Barkskin won't set the SCRIPTINGSTATE5 variable without Detectable Spells, though.
