Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How to implement a centralized event system for dialogues

So, I finished my dialogue system. But now I have the problem that I don't have anything that knows when the player has chosen a specific dialogue option. I can't start or end a quest, give a player an item, fire an event that change the dialogue the second time the player talk to an npc or acknowledge in any way that the player used the right or wrong answer.

My dialogue system uses Data Tables to dynamically create the dialogue tree, it's not hard coded like this tutorial I've seen, and inside those tables there is the entire structure of the specific dialogue tree. I created this system so I could just use google sheets to write the dialogues for every npc, then import the CVS as a Data Table and use it dynamically.

I thought about having a hidden value inside my dialogue options. That would be the value of a specific event that fire somewhere, or a function, or having a function that contains a massive switch that allows me to script whatever I want to. But it doesn't seems practical on the long run, with thousands possible dialogue events.
