I've been working on a total inventory script. Part of this inventory is four different potions:
-- A potion to cure all poisons
-- An elixir to cure all ills except poisons
-- A potion to add temporary super strength
-- Obtain wizardry (exceptional creative abilities)
In regard to the potion "Wizardry", I was searching through the scripts that might be related so I can steal some of the code ( to possibly use ) when I happened on the following script:


I looked in the global "script" and sure enough it was there. However, I can't figure out how to use it. It's neither in "gameplayercontrol' script. Apparently the power added is the amount of health as indicated in the script. However, what exactly is it added to? It shows that it would be added to the current/selected entity. If so why is it destroyed?

After all of this time thinking and writing down the detail of this query, I personally have come to the conclusion that at this point in the GG classic development: It does nothing.

If anybody has an actual way of using this, please give me the facts and nothing but the facts.

it adds to spell power so the wizard staff becomes more deadly

...oooh. Mind blown. ?lol?
Something like "SetStaffDamage" seems like it would
have answered all questions instead of this enigmatic name.

When I searched the forums, I only searched for "AddPlayerPower" which didn't give me any results. I should have then searched "SetPlayerPower". However, if I wouldn't have brought this up, then GubbyBlips wouldn't have known about it. Thanks smallg for being patient with this old-timer who sometimes acts as a noobie.

And glad we helped out another developer.

no worries, it's what we're here for

well the spells were originally cast without a staff when the fantasy pack was made so i guess Lee just threw any semi-appropriate name in... with some better documentation it would be fine
