To say nothing of poets. Makes me suspect it was the poets and arts grads that kept scoring all the hot dates.. :lol:

Thank you , I have been meaning to get use of the debug console skills for a while. Now it begins.

Some new ones from my testing

All pancakes - prepare to cutlet…
We shall steak your dwarf
Kiss your loathing of poetry, human poet-monkey!
Die treacherous lollipop-umbrellas
We then cutlet your mutant
You might render this soup!
You may obstruct this grub
We will burgers your umbrella
All mutants - prepare to monkey

So funny! And those messages are really distracting in combat! The Thargoids are very clever - they know a laughing pilot is a bad pilot! :lol:

submersible:

Code: Select all

  "thargoid_does" =
  (
     "despise",
     "render",
     "creep",
     "blast",
     "kiss",
     "[thargoid_does]", // picked to often?
     "flay",
     "obstruct",
     "author",
     "crush"
  );
Putting "[thargoid_does]" inside "thargoid_does" dictionary is redundant as it will 1 in 10 times pick that only to pick another one in that list which 1 in 10 is that one again and so on. With theoretical infinite number of substitutions mathematically it is equivalent of 1 in 9 random selection of the other options. This is only theoretical as there is a nested substitution limit (I can not remember how deep) that means there is a chance, if rather small, of being left with that key, and possibly other keys, being un-substituted.

You know - I had a grave feeling when I did it that it was silly. If there is much interest in this thread such that people think it's an OXP worth having - perhaps you'd be able to clue me in some more about how all of that works. I've been reading wiki, descriptions.plist comments and am only barely wiser. :)

What you have here is something pointing to itself. Which in the worst case can create an infinite loop. Which is a bad idea.

Or, from a more basic common-sense point of view: You're giving ten options, but one of them is "choose one of the other nine options", or to put it in other words, "d'oh! start all over again and repeat this choice (for no good reason)". It just doesn't make sense.

Actually it is not one of the other nine, but choose the ten options again. If it were only the other nine, there would be no loop. :)
I am sure you mend to write that in the first place. :wink:

I'm surprised, there is no quote of the day oxp, showing the quote through the interfaces screen. :mrgreen:

Thanks for that submersible. 8)
Take an idea from one person and twist or modify it in a different way as a return suggestion so another person can see a part of it that can apply to the oxp they are working on.

Okay, if you say so mr. deceased Thargoid!

I had "Star! Star! Star!" earlier today, which was quite poetic in a way.
