SetIsTemporaryFriend(object, object, int, float)

From NWN Lexicon
Jump to: navigation, search

Causes an creature to consider another creature a friend indefinitely or for a fixed time.

void SetIsTemporaryFriend(
    object oTarget,
    object oSource = OBJECT_SELF,
    int bDecays = FALSE,
    float fDurationInSeconds = 180.0f
);

Parameters

oTarget
The object whose reputation will be altered.
oSource
The creature whose opinion will change (Default: OBJECT_SELF)
bDecays
If this is TRUE, the friendship decays over fDurationInSeconds; otherwise it is indefinite. (Default: FALSE)
fDurationInSeconds
This is only used if bDecays is TRUE, it is how long the friendship lasts. (Default: 180.0f)


Description

Make oSource into a temporary friend of oTarget using personal reputation by changing their personal reputation value to 100 (maximum friendliness).

This will fail if oTarget and oSource are in the same faction or party (Check with GetFactionEqual) as they can never be considered temporarily anything but what the faction in general tells them to think.

Note: If bDecays is TRUE, the personal reputation amount decreases in size over fDurationInSeconds. Friendship will only be in effect as long as (faction reputation + total personal reputation) >= REPUTATION_TYPE_FRIEND.


Remarks

Due to the buggy nature of SetIsTemporaryNeutral the best way to have a creature in a hostile faction not attack a player is to use this instead. PCs won't see a "friendly" faction in green, in fact being friendly rather than neutral doesn't really do much in the game if they stay that way.
