being ugly and having no friends doesn't mean you're a different gender

How do you do a battle system? on 11/22/2022 7:18:42 PM
The most basic would be to give both the PC and NPC the following:

- Health

- Attack
- Defend

It can be very simply hard coded fights where the NPC is controlled by dice rolls, the most basic of which could be something like 1D2 split (50/50 chance) to attack or defend. The player can then do whatever they feel is best.

After creating a simple system like this you can easily add more stats like Stamina, MP, or whatever is relevant to the plot and give more actions like Heal, Special Attack, etc.

The behind-the-scenes script is just checking if the health of the player is over 0, health of NPC is over 0, and any action/link clicked will just be a script that lowers health or does something to the stats of the PC/NPC based on their choice (or in the NPC's case, based on a dice roll).

And you're right, alexp's original basic scripting article goes through a simple combat system as an example.
