TourGuide Edit

What it does Edit

Instructs an NPC TourGuide to follow behind a PC and offer area-specific comments.

Note Edit

Triggers are used to indicate positions at which comments are made. See comments at top of script for instructions on use.

The script Edit

//:: TourGuide script
//:: Copyright (c) 2002 Bioware Corp.
    Instructs a TourGuide NPC to follow PC around and offer hints when the PC steps on triggers
    place this script
    - in each trigger's OnEnter event (use Name of trigger to distiguish multiple triggers in same area)
    - in TourGuide's Conversation End files to initiate behavior (i.e., to follow PC)
    - in TourGuide's Heartbeat to recover behavior
    if the TourGuide already has Heartbeat or ConversationEnd scripts, add the line ExecuteScript("TourGuide",OBJECT_SELF);
    To activate the TourGuide, use the command SetLocalInt( oTourGuide, "Active", TRUE ),
        comment out nActive=TRUE line below, and cause this script to run
    OR leave the nActive=TRUE line below and cause this script to run (via conversation with TourGuide)
    TourGuide should have Tag "TourGuide" and should be given an appropriate Voice Set
    Customize text and behavior in TourGuideText function at bottom of script
