Story Format: sugarcube
I am using this template: Twine/Sugarcube 2 Template by a.w. morgan
which has a two stats bar. I know how to put the bar on a passage and how to put the stats in it but I have no idea about the variables part.
Like, when the character gains/loses a stat, how is the coding/variables I have to use. For example, for a “extrovert” vs “introvert” traits… when the character do something with a extrovert tag, how do I do to add points to the extrovert variable and at the same time remove from the introvert variable, keeping a balance between the two.
I dont know if I am explaining this right, english is not my native language, sorry guys
Don’t track opposing stats separately, simply use a single variable to track the stat’s balance. So, for example, the $extrovert variable at
0 would represent a total introvert, and at
100 would represent a total extrovert. You’d subtract from that variable to make them more introverted and add to it to make them more extroverted.
Hopefully that makes sense and answers your questions.
that totally makes sense! I wont be able to use this method on this two-stas bar i’m using tho, because in it I have to put two variables… but well, i can discard this bar and use only your method, is fine too! thanks!
You can probably still use it, just pass
$extrovert as one value and
(100 - $extrovert) as the other.
You’re a genius!! Thank you so much!!
