Travel to more than 4 places
      #2901945 - 08/08/04 09:02 AM

I'm working on a plug-in for Morrowind.
It's inculing a city with a port and I want to travel from Dagon Fel to my city by boat.
The shipmaster of Dagon Fel allready has 4 places to go. But is there a way to add a 5th place or do I've to make a seccond shipmaster in Dagon Fel?

--------------------
Is there something else in the world instead of Morrowind?

Do I have to script if I make it trough dialoge, or in another way?
Is there a tutorial to make dialoges with 'transport options'?

There was a really wierd way to do it with travel options that was mentioned awhile back. Involved doing something with (I believe) TESTool. Can't remember the name of the thread though and can't tell you how to do it either, but apparently there is a way to have more than four travel options available...

Sorry for the tease...

Other way to do it is via script and/or dialog. Suggested way is to "fire" a short script from dialog:

-NPC: "I will send you here..." (this is obviously the result of a choice in dialog)

-in the results box for this statement: StartScript transportScript

-and then a short script:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

begin transportScript

Player->PositionCell x_coord, y_coord, z_coord, zrot "Balmora, House"
StopScript transportScript

end

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Given what you want to do, you will wind up with several choices via dialog, with each one having their own destination and subsequent script.

Look at the two mages for the "Mournhold" transportation sequence (one in Ebonheart and the other in Mournhold) to see another example. Almalexia also has a similar section for when she transports the player to the "Clockwork City", and there is a multiple destination example (using messageboxes) on a ring that you get from her after she is dead.

Traditionally this is done by making another shipmaster at Dagon Fel, who will transport you to the new place. Beth did this with Solstheim and the extra NPC at Khuul

Enchanted Editor can do this. It seems the 4 destination limit is part of the editor, not the game. Enchanted Editor is a little bit technical but supposedly (I haven't tried this myself) you can add 5 or more destination records to a travel NPC and it works fine. I just took a look and the record seems to be called DODT with a second record, DNAM, if the destination is an interior.

The easiest way would be to add another shipmaster. The second easiest way would be to do it through dialogue and script, as Grumpy suggests. I am not familiar with any other alternatives, although they apparent exist.
