Function that outputs the "Players online here".


Recommended Posts

Just a suggestion, since I know it's possible for a scene to grab the number of "active players" there.  

(seeing as it is listed just above the names in every scene)

 

mds_Active_players('1_0x2_1');

 

Could either return a simple integer value, or an array of names?

 

You can check for specific names via mds_check_group_location(), but I didn't notice in my browsing a way to do a more generic check of  "how many people at 1_0x2_1 currently?"

 

Ideally, it would be very cool to see if they are idle or not, but since the current scene lists anyone "orange", then I'll stick to utilizing similar implimented features here.  :)

Im not  a fan of this, since you could use it to locate people, which we have a spell for.

Ahh, good point.   I was leaning more towards the Integer value, honestly, since it's displayed already. 

(and can already imagine a quest of "get X# peopel here)

 

 

...hmm, and with that thought, perhaps not, since the coordinates in certain places (Golemus, etc) might be wonky due to the Tiny Men, Abra,  and other sorts of things.
