Is it safer to use global variables or conditional variables inside a script?

I need to keep track of minor actions a follower has performed.

 

Is it safer to use global variables using GetGlobalValue, or using conditional variables inside a script using GetVMQuestVariable?

 

I've heard that replacing a mod with a newer version can have problems with script variables and/or global variables.

one of those computer science problems that will probably never be truely solved, because of human emotion and cleverness (or lack thereof)

 

from a long time programming background, global variables are the devil. and the few skyrim mods i tried to tweak and submit new features to, i ended up completely rewriting because of their crazy use of globals.

 

i don't think either have problems the other do not have with updating. the problem is the skyrim save system itself.

MyController extends Quest
Bool Property Someshit = False auto hidden
MyOtherScript extends Whatever
MyController Property Mine auto

Function Whatever()
    DoShit(Mine.Someshit)
EndFunction

imho, is the boss.

Sounds good, I appreciate the technique.
