I am kinda stuck. I want to allow the player to use a smart phone to talk with one or two other NPCs. I have read the discussion by Eric Eve about creating a CommLink to allow the player to talk to a pilot in a ship flying far away, but I’m curious about how to initiate it.
What I would prefer is one of two methods:
- call bob
- use phone:
Who would you like to call?
I considered creating a phony entity that has no tangible form that “lives” in the phone with only a simple interface: Call, which would then either initiate a conversation with the phony version of the actor or maybe would simply set up a comm. link to the room where the NPC is currently located.
Any suggestions (or better yet…some code? )
