[v1.7.0+] The Black Bikini

#1 Post by Zizzo »

Okay, this one is a complete lark. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: It has two inspirations:
  • Shotray's Powerful Bikini addon, which gives your starting bikini/mankini the stats of Black Robe. That struck me as overpowered in a silly way, but it got me thinking: what about an actual artifact bikini with Black Robe stats?
  • And speaking of Black Robe, it always seemed to me that it should be one of the Obsidian Treasures like the Black Wall or the Black Crown, and I'm always vaguely disappointed when I rediscover that it isn't.
So I put those two ideas together and made a new addon, The Black Bikini, which does exactly what it sounds like. :wink: The Black Bikini should drop like a normal artifact, I think around where Black Robe would start dropping (I'm definitely not going to have Rak'shor wearing it :shock: ), and it will automatically change itself on creation to The Black Mankini if found or worn by male characters. And if you have Ashes enabled, both Black Robe and the Black Bikini will gain +5 Shadow Power and defense proportional to your total Shadow Power.

(And no, obviously this one isn't going into ZOmnibus. :twisted: )

[Implementation notes:]

Code: Select all

Hooks:
  Entity:loadList [to load our Black Bikini definition]
  ToME:‍PlayerDumpJSON [to clean up charsheet on the way out]

Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you get an achievement for winning the game while wearing this bikini?

…no? :? Obviously you didn't start the game wearing this artifact, and it's significantly more powerful than a normal bikini or mankini, which kind of defeats the "challenge" aspect of the achievement.

Why can't I put the Black Bikini in the items vault?

The Black Bikini/Mankini object itself requires a bit of support from the addon, such as the character doll image and special handling for the online character sheet (about which more below). Using the items vault to move the Black Bikini/Mankini to another character that doesn't have this addon enabled would probably break badly, so we block it from the items vault to avoid the problem.

Hey! The Black Bikini isn't showing up right on my character sheet!

That's unavoidable, unfortunately. The characters vault on te4.org obviously doesn't know about our custom images for the Black Bikini/Mankini, and in their absence the character doll image on your online character sheet would probably end up naked. While we suppose that might appeal to some, :| we prevent it by modifying the character sheet for export to the server, replacing our custom bikini/mankini graphics with the corresponding default graphics. We Apologize for the Inconvenience.™
