Anyone know of a way to (quickly, easily) determine how many rules you’ve written into a game?
Not an urgent matter – I just like how the compiler tells you that your game contains “50 rooms and 200 things.” It would be neat to see the same count for rules.
Ron Newcomb has a nice extension here that will let you write
When play begins:
let the rule set be a list of rules;
repeat with the index running from zero to the number of rulebooks:
let the current rulebook be the index as rulebook;
repeat with the current rule running through the unmodified current rulebook:
add the current rule to the rule set, if absent;
say "The story has [the number of entries in the rule set minus one] rules listed (not counting this one)."
