Dice Generator

Postby Ravynwynd » Tue Oct 16, 2018 11:13 am

Have the Devs considered adding a simple dice generator?

The primary reason I ask, is for RP purposes. Some mmorpgs have simple dice, like /roll or /roll d6 etc.

Having this function, will allow for RP battles/fights.

I remember CoH having that as an emote. It should be easy to do, unless you want something a little deeper like for actual team-gaming and/or gambling.

Having it be an emote as well is a little more complicated. To start with, your roll will just show up in chat.

That's perfect. To roll, d6, d20, d100, etc. Would be great to see in Chat.

I've enjoyed some RP battles in The Secret World where in chat dice were used to keep things fair.

Just a quick update for you Ravynwynd. I implemented the dice roll today which has a couple different syntax implementations such as

/roll d20(d6/d10/etc)
/roll (this rolls between 1 and 100)
/roll 50/10/40/etc (this rolls between 1 and the given number)
/roll 20 30 (this rolls between 20 and 30)

upon each breath a new fix, a new bug.
a whip cracks in the distance.
Somewhere, a programmer sighs.
