 Watsamax1 Senior Member     Status: Offline Posts: 155 Join Date: Aug 2009 Chance? - 06-10-2010, 08:08 PM Is it possible to like have a chance at something like you kill something and it drops loot. Not just have a set number a possibility. Not if killed 5 times drop this. have it a possibility like 10% possibility nothing or 40% a weapon, 20% coins. ___________________________________________________ Watsamax Industries Games Produced for Watsamax Industries Inc. 2010 Watsamax Industries: New York Watsamax@gmail.com http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001253371874#!/profile.php?id=100001253371874&v=wall http://www.youtube.com/user/Watsamax ___________________________________________________

Create a number variable in the method called "randomNum", and then set "randomNum" to a random number min: 1, Max: 100. Then you have have if/else statements saying "if(both(randomNum > 0 and randomNum <= 50), then itemDropped == coin" and then have another one except it would be randomNum > 50 and randomNum <= 100. You can add other quantities by just adding more of these, just make sure that the numbers are ranged to 100, or you will be able to drop more than one item at a time, or drop nothing at all sometimes. Also, an easier way would be to make nested if/else, where you have "if(random <= 25), drop coin; [b]else[b] if(randomNum < 50), drop weapon; [b]else[b] if(randomNum < 100), give double experience". You would have every if statement within the else of the previous if/else statement. This would make it a 25% chance of getting coin, 25% chance of weapon, and 50% change of bonus XP. This second method better programming and it would actually be easier to do, so just do it this way. Need an example world? Just ask Check out my best projects so far and please comment: Tic-Tac-Toe 2.0 ................... http://www.alice.org/community/showthread.php?t=3548 Alice Paint ........................... http://www.alice.org/community/showthread.php?p=23408 Real-Time Clock .................. http://www.alice.org/community/showthread.php?p=12725 Maze Game ......................... http://www.alice.org/community/showthread.php?t=4301

"When enemy = hit, do if chooseProbabilityOfTrue=40%, then drop weapon, else if chooseProbabilityOfTrue=20%, then drop coin..." And so on. Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.

 Watsamax1 Senior Member     Status: Offline Posts: 155 Join Date: Aug 2009 06-11-2010, 07:25 PM I make a method called like idk attack. i say when world starts (attack) in the method i have it if knight is within idk 15 meters of boar. boar point at knight and move to knight. but it only works if i make it exactly like 23 meters. even if i move to it it doesn't work. ___________________________________________________ Watsamax Industries Games Produced for Watsamax Industries Inc. 2010 Watsamax Industries: New York Watsamax@gmail.com http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001253371874#!/profile.php?id=100001253371874&v=wall http://www.youtube.com/user/Watsamax ___________________________________________________
 Dameria Senior Member     Status: Offline Posts: 978 Join Date: Sep 2009 Location: United States 06-11-2010, 10:00 PM Inside the if statement you have to have a "a < b" statement (found in world.functions). Then for "a" you put distance between knight and boar (found in knight.functions) and for "b" you put the distance in meters (in this case 15). That should work as long as you put it in the correct place in the code (think out the steps in your head from when you press the button and what will happen in each code of the method, and place it in the correct order for it work properly for what you want it to do).
