    TotalPods


    This is a very basic script used to gain farming exp. It is useful for getting your first few farming levels so that you can start farming herbs that let you gain money. I needed to get a couple farming levels quickly so I made this script for myself, but decided to share it.

    Instructions:
    -Start the script anywhere with Grand Seed Pods in your inventory and a Ring of Kinship equipped

    Known Bugs:
    -None, post if you get one

    Enjoy.

    Thumbs up

    Saw this and since no one has posted figured Id take the time to test for you..... your script works pretty good so anyone needing some farming XP (level 1 even!) this is a quick way to go for your early levels.

    The only thing keping this from flawless is two small issues. First is sometimes at the Great Tree your character is trying to launch a seed pod but the script eventually gets it right and calls for the use of the ring of Kinship and continues to roll on! The second issue that sometimes happens is when the character calls for a glider and is located really close to the boxes that the script does not see the glider pilot who ultimately gives up and leaves you behind....sadly this error seemed to set the script up to fail...perhaps a failsafe here would be advised that moves the guy randomly from a given spot if the pilot abandons you message is detected....
    Thanks and salutes to the author!

    It actually got stuck with the 1st error I reported too... failsafe on that would also be an easy way to avert that.

    Love the script though as farming can be a bit tedious to level...lol

    Hm, when the first bug happened where did you start the script? If you start it in the gnome stronghold it could happen but otherwise I don't see how it would.

    when it bugged by the steps it didnt see the glider pilot... when it bugged at the great tree where it failed it kept trying to use a seed pod.

    WHEN it catches itself at the Great Tree it does retry the ring...but occassionally it just doesnt.

    ya know I retried this with the camera angle high and those two issues went away.... and ya know I should have thought of that idea on my own... I would suggest though mentioning that in your instructions since it does seem to eliminate this... doing another test run of 100 pods....will verify if my new assumption is correct or if not.

    Still happening though I think the high camera angle lessens the Glider Pilot bug a bit.

    If you add some failsafes I think both of these issues would disappear.....

    When you post an update Ill be happy to help you test....

    I'm adding a walk after it uses the pod so that it doesn't screw up by the boxes. I'm not sure about the using pod while in Gnome Stronghold issue...shouldn't happen really. How do you have so many pods lol.

    Alright uploaded new version, added a bit of failsafe and should now move after using the pod.

    This test run consisted of 67 of the seed pods.....

    100% success at the Great Tree.... Victory is Yours over that bug.

    However the bug where the Glider pilot is blocked by YOUR character is still present... perhaps another failsafe moving the camera?

    It does not....this usually happens near those crates/boxes in the NW section....the character directly blocks your view of the glider pilot.

    Yeah...alright I think I got an idea then, just gunna use static coordinates to walk one square to the right. That should work right?

    I reuploaded v1.1. Try it out now, should move 1 square to the right when it clicks the pod now so it shouldn't happen anymore.

    expensive, but good way to reach 30 farming. Perfect timing on the release my friend.

    After that plenty of trees for exp.

    In my test on an alt I went from 1 farming to 26 on just 100 seeds.... 2.8 million or so gold bought the 100....so I would say 5.5 million and you would be well past 30....this is very far below the 50 million gold figure previous poster guestimated.

    Oh really? Lol. Didn't do any sort of math I just thought it was kinda pricey per pod so assumed the price would be high. Still a decent amount of cash for such little exp, but if you have the cash I guess you might as well.

    True, but since we are Simbaites we can get the gold over a few hours/days/whatever...... and while farming can be fun for a while legitting but lets be honest it takes FOREVER so this script helps in that regard a little....sp to you again for writing this!!!
