Replicate "Player.StartItem" for a custom non-player class

Post by Nash »

I want to replicate the functionality of Player.StartItem property for a custom, non-player class I'm making.

Specifically, the functionality of being able to specify a multiple list of arbitrary classes in the Default {} block and then have my custom class do what it will with that information.

How would I set this up?

Well... Player.StartItem is actually just DropItem hijacked... so you can hijack DropItem for that as well. IIRC there is no much magic behind the latter, so replicating a similar system shouldn't be too hard, with the grammar being the only obvious obstacle I can think of.
