Labeling help with point systems

point system is another way how you remember choice

in every if/else is condition in brackets

if (CHAR =1)
this mess that if somewhere above this if/ else the character gains one point this should happen.

so if you do not have let the reader gain any points before if/elif/else then nobody will be able to reach a condition where he needs to have 1 point.

Is it more clear?

yes I have more options, originally my first script was like this:

label features_fem_1

This was my original script but I found out that the features I have originally added did not work when I continue my story so I went to the point system. I am sorry if I am bothering and thank you for the help.

oh okay

so basicly on the start you should have something like this:

label glasses
NARR
Do you want to wear glasses?
choice “YES -wear glasses” {
NARR
Are you sure you want to wear glasses?
choice “YES” {
@CHAR +100
} “Um No” {
goto glasses
}
} “NO” {
NARR
Are you sure you do not want to wear glasses?
choice “YES” {
} “Um I am not sure” {
goto glasses
}
}

    NARR
Here will be another choice

So you will ask the reader for features he want and every time he wants it he will gain the points.

You have to first plan what points he will gain for what feature so you will from the total points know what was his choice

like this - but you should do your own to fit the features you are offering

oh okay I will try that thank you so much

Sorry one more question do you have insta so I can follow you

If you are having trouble with the point system, go check out @Dara.Amarie 's website: https://www.dara-amarie.com/ It is super reliable and I always use it.

yes its miss_desantis_

maybe first show me your plans of the points for your features so we can check if it will work before you will go to the choices.

just first make list of all feateures you want reader to choice form
and what combinations you want to offer them

Ah yes she does have a useful site thank you

Okay thank you so much farah it means a lot that your helping me!

we will figure it out I just need to know exactly what you want to make the reader choice from first. :slight_smile:

Okay I send you a response on insta idk if ya got it and yes I am confused

lol I get it, this is rocket science you have realy chosen literally one of the most complicated stuff.

I know how to do it in theory but because it is so damn complicated Iwas always too lazy to do it. :smiley: :slight_smile:
I haven’t checked my phone gimme moment. :slight_smile:

I am sorry I did not mean to choose a complicated choice sorry once again in advance also when you meant by listing the features do you mean that box that amborose made like this?

yeas something like this but you should add only the features you want to offer reader to choice from.

And before you start with this remember that every time you will change clothes of the character you will again have to create this 100 of clothes just for the one change.

This will be extremly demanding and you will have to care every time to name the outfits right or it will not work.

I am not telling you to not do it but I want to be sure you realy understand what you have decided to do:)

Like for example if you will in later chapters want the charachter to change into another outfit you will have to create 100 of the same outfit but one wits glasses once with hijab once wirth scar atc…and if you will give reader option to choice from 3 outfits you will have to create 300 of them to make the choice work…are you realy aweare of this?

oh okay makes sense and yes I really want to do this I am up for the challenge

OK then first make the list of all features you want reader to choice from.

And which combintion you want to offer - remember not all can be combined.

Like if oyu offer scar…will you offer only one scar or will the reader choice from more scars? atc… Will you alow them to have scar and hijab or you will not combine this.

Remember every feature and every comginations ads clothes to your list. :smiley:

Okay I will list them and do I send the list?

exactly
