Issue with one of the console commands

Post by eternalsage » Thu Jul 19, 2018 4:51 am

So, obviously this is not a matter of life or death or anything, but while I was playing around with the cheat codes/console commands I noticed the "add armor" command does not accept a number argument. In other words, "add weapon 1000" would add 1000 random weapons to my inventory, however "add armor 1000" (or any number, actually) just highlights what I entered. It doesn't throw and error or anything, it just sits there. Does anyone have any insight into this? Just a weird bug, or am I missing something? Also, is there a way to add something specific? Like "add daedric helm" or something? Just curious, seems like it would be useful for mods, as I know that's how Morrowind scripts worked (accessing the console commands). Anyway, thank you so much for all of your hard work, I have already sank 50+ hours into Daggerfall Unity, a feat I haven't done since the 90s! Loving it!

Welcome to the forums! :)

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. This was a simple error in the "add armor" and "add cloth" variants that was throwing an exception by using incorrect player race. I've fixed this now and it will be patched in next builds.

Happy to hear you're enjoying everything so far and thank you for the kind words. :)

Cool! Thanks! I'm looking forward to even more stuff. Mages are particular favorites of mine, so I am chomping at the bit to have the magic stuff working. I went and made a High Elf custom battle mage in classic to have ready to import when we have that milestone covered. I know some people are not appreciative of your labor of love, but I for one know how hard this is, having tried to code a game myself once. You and the others who have contributed are fricken Aedra as far as I'm concerned, fit to be venerated next to Talos. :D Rock on.

Cheers! :)

BTW, I forgot to respond to your suggestion in first post. I agree it would be awesome to specify a material and item type so we can add items like a daedric helm.

Rather than extend the "add [category] [count]" command (which was only intended to be a stress test for inventory system), I might instead create a new console command as I build out the Create Item magic effect. I plan to make a start on this over the weekend, and it would be an opportune time to add this functionality.
