    Cool Empty Bottle Script

    I was looking for a script to implement bottles, but I couldn't find one, so I made one.

    These scripts implements 4 bottles and 4 different types of potions. Setting them up is quite involved, and requires 20 custom items and 4 custom item classes. Rather than writing a prolonged explanation I'll just post the code, and if you can't figure it out ask me. I have tested this and it works on the quest I am building. Note that the item numbers in the script apply to my custom quest, and they'll be different for you, as will sound effect and string numbers. I'm still new to scripting, so feel free to improve on them in any way, but please give me credit if you use this.

    Code:
    //Bottle Scripts
    //by FlounderMAJ
    
    //This is a script for empty bottles!
    //D0 is the item number for the pickup potion/bottle item, D1, D2, D3 and D4 are 
    //the item numbers for each potion or other bottle item.
    //The four Bottle variables in the script are the item numbers of your bottles.
    //These will always be the same for your quest.
    //D5 is a pickup string, and D6 is a String stating there are no empty bottles.
    //D7 is the amount of Rupees to return to Link if there is no empty bottle available.
    //For this script to work, Each bottle must be a separate item in a separate custom item class,
    //and EACH potion type will have an item for EACH bottle, in the custom item class mathing the respective bottle.
    //For 4 Bottles and 4 types of potions/bottle items, this requires 20 custom items in 4 custom item classes.
    //This script should be slotted as a pickup script for the built-in potion type items.
    
    
    //Use this table to organize the D0-D7 needed to set up each item.
    //+------------+--------+------------+-------------+--------------+---------------+----------+

    				}									
    			}	
    
    			Waitframe();
    		}
    	}
    }
    Once this is implemented, you can add each of the custom item classes to your subscreen, and you have 4 independent bottles, each one can have different contents, and be used individually. The bottles can be used over and over. And since you are slotting the script into the built-in potion items, you can still use the Letter item to activate the shop. Let me know what you think, and please feel free to ask if you need help setting the items up.

    Happy Questing,

    Well written and great explanations. Kudos. I don't see anything wrong with the way this is written whatsoever.

    Edit: "Game->Counter[1]=(Game->Counter[1]+rupees);" could be re-written as "Game->Counter[1]+=rupees;" and is the same syntactically.

    The use of all four Potion Item IDs in the potion script is redundant when the script is slotted into each potion individually. Here's what I recommend changing it to:
    CODE: Show
    //This Script is for the bottle potions.//D0 is the type of potion, with 0 being empty, 1 being Red, 2 being Blue, 3 being Green, and 4 being Purple.
    //D1 is the Item ID of the potion.
    //D2 is the Item ID corresponding empty bottle for that potion set.
    //D3 is an optional string ID to display once the item is used.
    //D4 is a sound effect ID to play.
    //The item numbers should be listed in the table above.
    //This script should be slotted as the action script for each bottle item, but not


    item script potions{
    void run(int PotionUsed, int PotionID, int Bottle, int String, int sfx){
    Link->Item[125]=false; //These lines remove any pickup potions Link has,
    Link->Item[126]=false; //see table above and change item numbers to match
    Link->Item[127]=false;
    Link->Item[128]=false;


    Link->Item[Bottle]=true;
    Game->PlaySound(sfx);


    if (PotionUsed==1){ //Red Potion
    Link->HP=Link->MaxHP;
    Link->Item[PotionID]=false;
    }


    if (PotionUsed==2){ //Blue Potion
    Link->HP=Link->MaxHP;
    Link->MP=Link->MaxMP;
    Link->Item[PotionID]=false;
    }


    if (PotionUsed==3){ //Green Potion
    Link->MP=Link->MaxMP;
    Link->Item[PotionID]=false;
    }


    if (PotionUsed==4){ //Purple Potion
    if (Link->MaxHP<129){
    Link->HP=Link->MaxHP;
    Link->Item[PotionID]=false;
    } else {
    Link->HP=Link->HP+128;
    Link->Item[PotionID]=false;
    }
    }
    Screen->Message(String);
    }
    }

    I have also moved the String message out so that any potion has the option of having a string displayed.

    Oh yeah I realized that it was Redundant ages ago. It works in any case. The idea of leaving an option for a string for every potion is a good one, Thanks! Have you found it easy to set up and work with otherwise? Is it working well?

    Edit: I did recently find a bug related to attempting to buy a potion without an empty bottle and when your wallet is full. As written, the rupees are not properly returned to Link due to the wallet being full. What happens is the script gives the rupees immediately, before they drain in the normal fashion. To fix this, I added a line to temporarily increase the wallet cap by the amount of the rupees being returned. Then, on the screen just outside the shop, I drop in a simple ffc script that resets the wallet cap to where it should be. It works well on my quest, and so far I haven't had an instance where the wallet has more rupees than the wallet capacity.
