A really needed addition: the restart command!

Hello you FLHook coders!

I've always been wondering if that was possible... If you've ever used FLShell, one of its neatest features was the restart command, which allowed you to make reboot your current character with a brand new set of features. You could, for example, gain a totally different reputation, a new ship and such. This allowed for great RP, since you could decide to start off the bat as a Corsair instead of having to work your way there. You could also have different costumes and bodyparts.

Since FLShell has pretty much vanished by now, I think it would be a great idea to integrate this feature into FLShell. It's one of the few reasons I liked FLShell and I really think it would be of much use in FLHook.

So, any idea?

The first plugin I plan to release for the plugin version of hook will be this feature. As soon as New Universe 1.7 is out I will have time to release it (if no one else does it before me). Don't expect anything special, it has only simple features like beaming to a base, rep hacks, money change, but no equipment change (since it is not needed on NU), but it is INI-file based. I do every change while the player is logged in (not in char select menu), he only gets kicked on rep change, since the client seems not to sync serverside rep changes. I will release the source, since its just about 30 lines with a bunch of if cases. So anyone can change it as he likes. (For instance add a characterfile edit instead of doing it while the player is logged in, so he hast not to be undocked for beaming). We are using my implementation since I started modifing hook (should be over a month now) without any problems.

I started implementing a ship change while the player is logged in, which worked so far but I stopped when it came to giving equipment (since we didn't need that feature anyway). Maybe I will include that too, we will see (depends on whether I figure out the equipmentlist (or whatever that was), or maybe I will use a workaround).

Yeah Schmackbolzen u did great work in that feature, we're using it for about 3 months now and noone figured our a bug so far.
And u did miss the affiliation line, u can also change the affiliation of a char or only the rep to a faction.

88 Flak's FLHook does have a restart command, but it's an admin command that restarts the server - it's not related to FLShell's restart command.

Open in new window you call it "donation" 4 tax reasons?
(While i doubt, that will help.
AND - if you make it a commercial price, you might be able
to express a negativ income [if your expenses should be higher])

Oh and btw - does Starport tolerate commercial adds?
Maybe Starport should request a minimum donation of € 36 for each.

PS. This remembers me to express my respect 4 Worfeh and everyone else, who made that possible.

Please remember to stay polite. Eagle's... pricings on modding material might be a bit badly regarded, but FLAC is still a tool used by many servers and should be considered on par with FLHook and the like. It's all up to the end-user to decide what program to use, even though I myself would definitely never use FLAC as paying for such a program goes against my vision of what the community should be.

I'd seriously like to see FLHook beat the crap out of FLAC with plugins ;D
