    Modern Zelda Scripts

    See what I did there? Got your attention didn't I? Okay so lately I have been thinking that we should get together and work out what we can do with ZScript to make ZC quests feel more like a modern Zelda game. So I figure we need a topic for that. Give some suggestions about what core gameplay features of later Zelda games we might be able to incorporate into ZC to make it feel more like a modern Zelda game and how we can do it. Also we can talk about existing scripts that do this but might be broken, outdated, buggy, or just don't work so well and how we can fix that. For instance I have heard there is a script for picking up pots and throwing them but I heard it was buggy. I haven't tried it out but if someone has I'd like to hear how it might need to be improved.

    The ultimate goal I think will be to create a "script pack" a group of scripts that improves ZC gameplay and makes ZC quest feel more modern. All scripts would be contained in a zip archive or something which would contain a header file for the pack, the scripts combined(any global code already merged and all scripts in one file), and the scripts separated(each in it's own file with it's global data). This way it will be very easy for users to add the scripts to their quest.

    One exclusion I think needs to be made is no scripts specifically for side view. Also no Wii Motion Plus.

    - Z3 Scrolling (Obviously)
    - Pot Smash (With the debris and SFX)
    - EASY TO USE Horse (Or just vehicle) script
    - Enemies that fight back (Think Minish Cap's/Four Swords's Darknuts)

    That's it for now.

    Z3 scrolling is generally considered to be much too much effort to be practical. It involves fighting with ZC in almost every way. If you want to see Z3 scrolling you will have to wait for a revision of ZC or a new ZC like project.

    Explain what you mean by pots.

    Isn't there already a horse script? Honestly I don't see the how it would benefit to gameplay.

    I agree we need more custom enemies but I don't think that is really core gameplay.

    I don't think that would be hard but once again I dunno if that really enhances gameplay. I was thinking more like rolling or dashing, holding and throwing pots/bushes, MoscowModder's ALTTP Map script, etc.

    It probably wouldn't enhance's gameplay. But it sure would be neat.

    My suggestions:
    • HUD system
    • Enemies with the ability to slash with swords
    • Customizable game over screen (Like, background, text, music...)

    :)

    Once again I think enemies would be separate, maybe we could start a "script pack" for non boss enemies. Anyway I have done some stuff for HUDs(you know) and game over screens. Nothing I can really show. What would you want to customizable? Background? There aren't any game over screen scripts floating around are there?

    Yeah, my scripting capacities are not good enough for simulation of this caliber (and I haven't the time to dedicate for them). I could see the benefit of scripts like these, but I don't believe I have anything worth contributing.

    A custom save screen (With music, sfx when you move the cursor) would be nice!
