I realised that there was never a formal announcement here to read up: The Catara NWN server is offline for quite some time now, due to time constraints. I might revive it someday, but it is pretty unlikely. If anyone wants to use our custom classes or tools, ping me on twitter (@jollyorc) and we can see what we can do for you! In the meantime, I do recommend The World of Avlis: https://avlis.org/
custom placeables - lights
  • I noticed that all the custom placeable lighting items (for example skull candles, lamp posts...) have scripts ("zep_torchspawn") in their onHeartbeat slot...does this cause any problems with persistant modules and lag?
  • yes, please remove them!
  • Yea, thought so :)

    Can i remove the onHeartbeat script, and still use the placeables?
  • sure you can.
  • A lot of the candles also have these lag-monster heartbeat scripts.. i checked & yanked them from the interiors i'm working on, & seems to make no difference when i tested the module. They also had an on-use script.. these candles are static tho & so not usable.. i'm guessing i can happily ignore any such on use scripts?
  • you can. In fact, make those placeables non-useable, so they won't confuse the players :)
  • If you've ever been in the Razzle Dazzle shop on Tairis...well, those are my scripts, and they don't run on heartbeat. I even have a side version where NPC's can turn lights on and off. So, if you need lighting control of some sort for one of your build plans, just let me know.

Howdy, Stranger!
