Hello everyone

This is my very first thread here and i guess i need to explain myself a bit and co.


First of all i had some days ago my 9. year in SL (yay XD) and in LSL scripting im more or less a total...."noob".of course in SL sefl i already created a lot other stuff and things but the most problem is that my time to learn such things and stuff to create something in sl is not pretty much - im really busy in rl with a lot personal problems around my clients and like, which makes it for me really hard to write scripts and like.


I still know how to work with sounds and like but that what i asking for is another thing.


I have since begin of this year a thing in my mind which i cant get rid off and i really need a lot of help. Im looking for a easy healthbar system which also can add a bit of "armor" - also of course with weapons which reacts WITH the system.


the problem is, creating the weapons, textures and sounds is for me not any problem also not the idea behind the fight system which should more work with traps, knife fight and some guns. the main problem is that i have zero idea about how to script it so i hope now noone will throw bare shoes at me if i asking for help and explaining a bit more about my ideas...

here a sample picture (just done quick, more a short version of my idea....): HERE!


The HP "Base" should Be 100 HP at total. the Armor should work like a "+/-" system, as sample: The weapon makes normaly 5 dmg. You have 3 Armor. Total dmg from the weapon at the end is 2. so the problem is also i guess that those scripts should be add (more or less) only in the armors (so that the armors got those stats heh).

How the healthbar should work, best like a circle or a line which slowly goes to the end as lower the HP are. Also if your HP reaches Zero, the player should be kinda "frozen" for  20 seconds and not able to move at all (like he "passed out"/"died") - after this time the healthbar should be full again and the player back to moveable or like  (also if he died the weapons should also not more working of course). Another thing i JUST thought about is a regena effect which could be every 10 Seconds, the player get 2 HP back but im not sure about.

I duno if it is posible also to "show" how much HP and armor you have as Test over the hud/Health bar but if it is it would be cool.

About the weapons, as i said, it is MOSTLY about traps (i would say 60% Traps, 20% Knifes or like, 18% Gun, 2% other). So i guess i also need a script that those weapons really "act" with the system and only if you wear the hud of course.

Also about the "2% Other" i mean something like a working medikit with the system, which should be maybe useable only one time in 2 minutes and gives.....i duno...45 HP back at ones.



So i know it looks like a lot work, even for me, but i would really like to get some help with it. I would also like to give more future infos if someone is really intrested to work maybe together with me.


Really a great great thank you for the people who read ti and maybe helps me out even if my hope is really not that high coz it is indeed a lot work of scripts i guess....


Im also sorry, if my english is bad. im from germany and sometimes....my english maybe just "sucks" im really sorry... -.-

Your English is fine; way better than my German.

But I dont understand how you are able to do all the things you mention, viz. " creating the weapons, textures and sounds is for me not any problem also not the idea behind the fight system which should more work with traps, knife fight and some guns" and still call yourself a noob in scripting.

here is a basic health bar script, it uses a list of characters to display the health bar.

you could start with this and mod it to fit your needs?

 it works on collisions, though many systems now use castray on their weapons

 to get rid of rezzing temp prims. notice how the list uses the health variable index with llList2List,

 it also changes color of the hovertext. to see what it looks like, put this script in a prim and

 wear it, then rez a pole to bump into and watch the hovertext when you collide with the pole?


integer health = 10;string pList ;list zList = [];vector color = <0,1,0>;list Charsetx = ["*","█","█","█","█","█","█","█","█","█"];default{    state_entry()    { llSetText("Health: " + (string)health + " "  +  llDumpList2String(Charsetx,"" ), color, 1.0);    }        collision_start(integer num)    {             health -= num;                         llOwnerSay("health " + (string)health);              if(health < 7) { color = <1,1,0>;}              if(health < 4) {  color = <1,0,0>;}              if(health == 0)              { llOwnerSay("dead");               // put delay here for regen                health = 10; color = <0,1,0>;              }                         zList = llList2List(Charsetx,0,health);             pList = llDumpList2String(zList,"" );               llSetText("Health: " + (string)health + " " + pList, color, 1.0);     }}

i can easy tell you why i know that coz the whole idea is based on something i loved and enjoy. So i actually know what i wana build and create ^^


It is of course a LOT of work for me still i wish i could script the things i need myself...even if it would be maybe MORE work but still i wish i could...

i try to work on something so that people maybe have a better view of that i am talking about, its just a sample and i duno if that works ^^;


integer health = 100;integer Armor = 0;integer damage = 0;integer LostHP = 0;integer Dmgtaken = 0;integer regena = 2;integer action = 1;vector color = <0.498, 0.859, 1.000>;default{	state_entry()	{ llSetText("HP: " + (string)Health \n "Armor: " (string)Armor \n "DMG: " + (string)damage \n "Healratio: " + (string)regena, color, 1.0);	}        llCollisionFilter("ACTIVE WEAPON PRIM NAME HERE","",TRUE);	{ 	collision_start(integer total_number)	{	  LostHP == ( HERE I NEED NOW THE INFO HOW TO GET THE DAMAGE FROM THE OTHER PLAYER - (string)Armor );	  if(LostHP < 1) = 0;		health -= (string)LostHP;		llOwnerSay("DAMAGE TAKEN! " + (string)LostHP);		if(health < 30) { color = <1,0,0>;}		if(health < 0)		 llWhisper(0, " llGetDisplayName(llGetOwner) DIED!");

So let me explain

the integers

Health should be the HP which should be 100 and not more.

Armor is the Shield-effect you should get from dresses which will work with the system (i come to this later).

Damage is the own dmg you will make from the melee weapons, guns and traps should also get this dmg but has their own Damage integers set (i duno how).

LostHP will be the integer which should calculate the differance between the Dmg you will take (integer "Dmgtaken") - the armor you have.

DmgTaken is a integer which should get the info how much/high the Integer "Damage" is from your enemy or the traps/gun shots. it also will be used to calculate the integer "LostHP".

the regena integer should work passive anyhow that this integer will add Health back, (as sample, every 10seconds your Health adds + (string)regena).

the action integer should work for the weapons, it should be turned OFF as soon as the player reaches ZERO Health, so that weapons are "turned off". the integer should be set back to 1 as soon as the player is back "alive".



I hope that helped a bit. im sorry im not good with scripts ><; still i tried my best to explain and wrote a bit...

i dont mean to be a downer but I think you kinda trying to reinvent something that has already been pretty much written

is quite a number of battle/combat systems which you can get. with all the source codes

they quite good as a base to mod/make your own system off

the wiki link for all of them is here

well kinda maaaybe i duno but i found a base so far but i have some problems with still...


here the base (i already changed a bit)

the problem i have is


- if i am dead i anyhow stay death, i duno how to fix that coz i only wana be 20 seconds "death" and not the whole game

- the problem is that this system is running on "velocity", its hard this system could work on Melee or trap weapons, i duno how i could change that maybe...

- i still can move if im "dead" also i can (sadly) still us my weapons


Maybe someone can now help me with it, at least the base is there...

how good are your mesh modelling skills? You said this is no problem for you??

if you good at mesh and can make really good stuff then put that in your Wanted advert

and also be able to show people what you have made already

if you are good mesh modeller and texture maker then really good scripters will be interested in working with you. Like commercially, so you can both make some loot out of it
