ForceAV and ModAv stopped working


Recommended Posts

So I modified Vipcxj's Airfight system to drain fatigue based on movement speed and endurance stat and that part works great but since I can only subtract from the fatigue in integer values it would drain fatigue too fast normally so my solution was to use ForceAV to give the player 100 times their current fatigue when they activate flight and then divide it by 100 to reset it when they deactivate flight. This worked perfectly fine at first however I had other mods that weren't working, namely Oblivion XP wasn't taking effect and some armor mods had conflicts. So I messed around with my load order and rebuilt bashed patch and now suddenly ForceAv doesn't work. The script has no effect despite being unchanged. When I used ForceAV in game through the console it worked but could only go up to a certain, seemingly random value dependent on my base fatigue. I've tried rebuilding bash, changing load order, disabling mods, and removing my .ini to no effect. Does anyone have an idea of what caused such a drastic issue?

The delinquent master issues are because I tried loading the files after the bashed patch. This fixed oblivion xp's issue but did nothing for my main problem.

It can be all too easy to produce unwanted effects with these functions.





http://obse.silverlock.org/obse_command_doc.html(looking at the AV sections.)

Follow all the links from the CS pages. Make note of things like "You should never use ForceActorValue". All the AV functions are fraught with danger, especially when multiple mods make use of them. Their are some examples on the wiki of issues you can easily get with dueling mods making AV changes.

I don't know what caused the AV functions misbehave in your game, but I know how it is handled in that kind of mods.


but since I can only subtract from the fatigue in integer values it would drain fatigue too fast normally

Yes and no. You can only decrement it by integers yes, but this does not mean that it has to drain fatigue super fast. If I remember correctly, the air fight mod works in the same way with pretty much any other mod that does a similar job.

The idea is to cumulate floating point fatigue drains until it reaches equal to or more than a whole integer.


Let's say your game runs 25fps for example, you would think that it has to damage fatigue 25 per second because the script should run 25 times every second. But it doesn't need to. You can decide if it will damage fatigue or not in every given frame.

So if you want to damage 5 fatigue points per second, instead of 25 pts, and always only 5 no matter how your frame rate is,

Let fatigue_damage -= 5.0 * ScriptEffectElapsedSeconds	; Or GetSecondsPassed if it's a GameMode script
if fatigue_damage <= -1.0
	ModAV2 fatigue -1
	fatigue_damage += 1.0
should work.


Assuming 25fps, ScriptEffectElapsedSeconds or GetSecondsPassed will return 0.04 or very close value. So, on every run, fatigue_damage variable decrements by 5 * 0.04 = 0.2; After 5 frames your fatigue actually decreases by 1, and so forth.

I guess that'll work, thanks



Update: Got it working exactly as I wanted. Also, my script is significantly different from the CS flying example in that I calculate the players velocity vector in 3 dimensions and use that as a multiplier so you can stop to hover without losing fatigue or switch to walk mode to go slower but lose fatigue slower as well for aerial combat. This works especially well with an enchantment on the wings to fortify speed and athletics.
