Guess I never really understood the power or potential of scripting zones. Are there any help docs? Any examples that we could see?

Wel for instance properly randomizing the location of items in the cretan shark area so that players can't beeline to the key was done by using a BlobbieScript zone reset. Feel free to try and decipher for yourselves what is happening in the following zone BlobbieScript:
Code:
protect { static @whaleShark1 if( !%isValid( @whaleShark1 ) ) #@whaleShark1 = %load( mobile, 125205, 125206 ) #%setCharStat( @whaleShark1, npcGroup, 125206 ) endif static @largeShark1 if( !%isValid( @largeShark1 ) ) #@largeShark1 = %load( mobile, 125204, 125213 ) #%setCharStat( @largeShark1, npcGroup, 125207 ) endif //---- static @dolphin1 if( !%isValid( @dolphin1 ) ) #@dolphin1 = %load( mobile, 125217, 125218 ) #%setCharStat( @dolphin1, npcGroup, 125202 ) endif static @dolphin2 if( !%isValid( @dolphin2 ) ) #@dolphin2 = %load( mobile, 125217, 125223 ) #%setCharStat( @dolphin2, npcGroup,

#%setExitStat( @exit, isLocked, 1 ) } endprotect
For the record, this was implemented ages ago, and I could have done it better, but I felt lazy. Also using resolutions would make it a lot clearer... eg:
Code:
#%setCharStat( @greatWhite7, npcGroup, 125207 )
Would be cleaner as:
Code:
#@greatWhite7->npcGroup = 125207

Another good use, that I haven't done yet but is simple enough, you can use it to re-arrange maze structures between zone resets. Very cool if you don't want your maze to be eternally solved after a person first solves it. Just need 3 or 4 rooms that the zone re-arranges the connections on.

Once you learn the quests, the logic behind some of the stuff (when we're so privledged to see it) becomes more understandable!

in my experience, it is a heck of a lot easier to understand what is already scripted. i almost always understand what blob shows me or what i read but when it comes time to write my own, i usually have more trouble. maybe it's just me =p

A good part of that is because the functions and variable names I use tend to speak for themselves. However if you aren't completely familiar weith the function library then starting from scratch is much more difficult since you need to seek out what functions you can use to achieve your goal. Viewing my code simplfies that stage since they are presented to you without the need to know the whole library.

Start reading dog!

It's all explained. See the "triggers" and "functions" links for the "library" :)

Don't try to absorb it all at once. As I said, I don't mind lending a hand Kay. It's probably easiest to learn some of the easier functions, and how to use variables properly, then get into the mass number of functions in BS on an as needed basis.

Whenever it feels like it's overwhelming, just think of lil' ol' me hammering away to not only bring you the BlobbieScript engine, the functions, the triggers, but also the mind-numbing documentation *grin*.
