icon The Unknown Element (+1)  
Overview :

Thanks to 3.0.2 scripting engine, we can create new elements, such as new monsters, new kind of mirrors and so on. This is possible as for my secret project I created 4 new monsters and 2 puzzle objects. They're cool and have potential. Show what you can do.


Rules :

Post the holds in this thread. After all the entries have entered, I will make a poll thread. You can submit the holds until 26/05/07.
The hold must have a tutorial room, that explains the element, and minimum a puzzle room. You may submit only one hold.
Use this thread for sumbmitting and also for asking questions.
Custom images aren't required, but they are really appreciated.
Remember that you can edit DROD graphics for use them in your hold. You can use only DROD 3.0 or 3.0.2 rev2. No JTRH or other TCB versions.


Examples :

There are 2 easy examples :

Direction Mirror = When you push it, it moves in your direction.
Slow Roach = It moves every 2 turns.


FAQ :

My monster isn't killing me! = Use "Imperative : Deadly"

I don't have any idea... = Why don't you look at Feature Requests?

When I kill my element, it isn't required / it reappears! = Use "Imperative : Required Target" to make it required. Use "Imperative : End when killed" at the start of the script to make it not reappear when you re-enter the room and kill it.

I'm not good with scripting... = Press F1 in DROD. It will show you the help.


Prizes :

1st Place = 6 rank points + legal graphics collection
2nd Place = screenshot of my secret hold
3rd Place = 1 rank point


Have fun, and partecipate!

Ummm...
1.The fairies don't do anything?
2. You can't exit the level because the blue door goes down.

Other than that, good idea!

Not bad, really not bad. The faires move for me, the unique bug I found is that the blue door won't open.

Gah!
And I thought I had tested it!
Well anyways, yes, the fairies move.
And the blue door doesn't open if you don't re-enter the exit room, wich fails in this case.
I'll remove it, since you can't skip rooms anyways.

Yes, exactly.
3.0.2 scripts don't import into 3.0.0, they're empty.

-Insane

EDIT: Your hold works in 3.0.2.
But I can't get past the second part of Thrice East, I'm just one move off.

It is possible. You have to be very efficient at clearing the tar and mud.

Can we discuss these? 'cause I think the colored-door thing is rather interesting, but has a serious character-movement-order problem. Because the doors are characters, they react in order, which is to say that if you bump Door #255 on a turn, then Door #256 toggles immediately, but Doors #1-254 don't toggle until the next turn. I noticed this most in 1N1E, where the general effect was "the doors randomly switch".

That's not real. I said it a scroll that only happens when you block a door, so it's normal, because the order destroy when you block a door.

Huh? It's very real. I'm not blocking those doors; they're just not toggling until the next turn.

I have a hard time seeing how one could be more efficient than I'm being, but it still doesn't bring me anywhere close to killing the ghost that goes into the force arrow trap.

On turn 26 (when the bomb explodes), I am directly to the west of the gel. One more square east and I'd be in the bomb's blast. That puts me a minimum of four moves away from the east-going ghost.

What am I missing?

[EDIT: This is the final room of the Ghost Scroll hold.]
