talkto

This type of objective requires the player to interact with an NPC with an exclamation mark overhead to pass the stage.

Examples

// The player must talk to Marge to pass the objective.
AddObjective("talkto");
		AddNPC("marge", "m1_marge_sd"); // Places Marge at the Type 3 Locator named "m1_marge_sd".
		AddObjectiveNPCWaypoint( "marge", "marge_walk_1" ); // Sets a Type 3 Locator for the NPC to walk towards.
		SetTalkToTarget("marge", 0, 0.2);
        // The first argument is the drawable used:
        // - 0 is the standard exclamation mark
        // - 1 is a drawable named "gift"
        // - 2 is a drawable named "interior_icon"
        // The second argument is a height offset.
CloseObjective();

-- The player must talk to Marge to pass the objective.
Game.AddObjective("talkto")
		Game.AddNPC("marge", "m1_marge_sd") -- Places Marge at the Type 3 Locator named "m1_marge_sd".
		Game.AddObjectiveNPCWaypoint( "marge", "marge_walk_1" ) -- Sets a Type 3 Locator for the NPC to walk towards.
		Game.SetTalkToTarget("marge", 0, 0.2)
        -- The first argument is the drawable used:
        -- - 0 is the standard exclamation mark
        -- - 1 is a drawable named "gift"
        -- - 2 is a drawable named "interior_icon"
        -- The second argument is a height offset.

Notes

  • Radical generally uses these stages before dialogue stages, but the dialogue stage isn't strictly necessary.
  • The NPC will walk back and forth between the Locators specified in AddObjectiveNPCWaypoint and AddNPC provided the player character is far enough away.
    • When the player character gets close, NPCs will stop and look in the player's direction.
    • If more than one call to AddObjectiveNPCWaypoint is present, the NPC will walk through the Locators in sequence before returning to the Locator specified in AddNPC.
  • The extra values in SetTalkToTarget default to zero, meaning they are not strictly required.
    • Radical offsets the icon with certain characters for aesthetic purposes.
