I've had this idea for a while about NPCs talking to each other. I had envisioned NPCs sharing snappy banter, similar to that between Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell in the movie His Girl Friday. NPCs can't do this currently*; they just stand around quietly and wait for someone to bump into them. I want to change that, so I spent all afternoon developing a new script that will enable NPCs to converse between each other. And when I say "developing," I really mean "designing." I have a blueprint for how the script should behave, but I have not done any actual scripting. I guess that currently categorizes the script as "vaporware."
I'm struggling a bit with how to prioritize this script. I think that it's important enough to focus upon, for I could really utilize such a script. I also think that it could blossom into a huge, labor-intensive project that would require more work than its yielded benefit. I'll need to give this a little more thought; my availability for Clan Lord projects is diminishing, and as I mentioned earlier, I need to be smart on how I spend my time.
And while speaking about how one spends one's time: may I just express how simply amazed I am that His Girl Friday is available on YouTube? Set aside 90 minutes and watch it. Enjoy a great classic comedy.
*[Clarification edit: NPCs can't converse with each other in a way that I want.]
