So I’m looking at reworking the alchemy system, by which I mean, “making from scratch”. There’s a few pros and cons to this:-
- We get a fresh start - We can probably adjust && and || operations behind the scenes since, frankly, players don’t need to know how they work – This solves codes always moving towards 00000000 and !!!!!!!! given enough steps (fuck code instability)
- It involves wiping the entire item database
I did a little writeup of my idea.
K so -
Hypothetical: Nuke the items table of all but base items.
What does this get us? A clean slate - as it is base items can lead relatively quickly to unstable codes. If we tweak the codes for base items we can prevent that. Now, as things are, we’re seeing players aren’t really liking to do full submissions, and bitch and moan about the QIC as well. One possible solution to this is making everything automatically created by the server.
How do we do this? Metadata. If we’re overhauling items we can add a FUCKTON of metadeta. Let’s take a butter knife for instance. Low power.
But what are its properties? Blade: Dull. Hard, smooth, shiny. OK, easy enough. Now we have the basics with which a new item can be created, using similar properties. Obviously things like the dull blade will sharpen as it goes up in power, but using just simple properties like that, we can get combinations sorted easily, and items that, when combined, actually make something that makes some goddamn sense. It can be added to the game immediately, enforcing a minimum character limit of say, 10 for the name, 50 for the description. Item mods need only verify suitability and edit if necesary.
But where do new grist types and effects come in? Well, metadata helps there as well. Let’s take a butterknife after 10 iterations - we now have a Serrated Combat Knife of the Gods. Rough leather handle, extremely sharp blade. We can say with reasonable certainty that this will cause bleeding. At some point though, a watch was included, so it has a small chance of timestop. We know a watch was included, because in this hypothetical rewrite, we’re making sure we keep the goddamn recipes in the database so we can see what fucking went in.
From these properties, and the powerlevel, we can determine other effects, and grist types. Of course there’s always a random chance of a new effect being brought in to spice things up - grists will adjust to compensate.
Basically, we add basic information about the base items - yes, we’ll probably need to expand the base item selection - and the computer figures out the rest based on what’s there.
And here’s a version I posted in teh dev chat two days later, expanding on it a bit more:
Properties is used
in lieu of “metadata” in this case, as the two are similar.
Also of note is that I’m not using && or || operators for the
example alchemy due to my own confusion about how exactly they work,
and any changes we’ll make - we can figure out different ways of
doing things for each property.
denotes the primary material the item is made of, by volume. It can
get a bit awkward - for our purposes I’ve presumed Wrist Watch has a
primary material of Leather (for the strap). There can be multiple
SecMats (secondary materials) if required, as they don’t weigh as
heavily into the calculation. Multiple primary materials are also
possible if they need to focus more heavily in the calculation.
posting for srslysims and anyone else who’s getting the “Unable to start: Origin is currently not running. Please make sure that Origin is running before attempting to play The Sims 4 [d3382ced:984c6a38:00000000]
“ error when trying to play the game on Windows 10. This is LONG, but I wanted to include everything because something that didn’t work for me might work for you.
Kamal: Thanks for holding, my name’s Kamal, with Electronic Arts. I’ll be just one more moment as I go over your case notes, then we can get started. Kamal: Thanks for waiting. you: I can send you the full error message if that would help. Kamal: Please tell me that. you: “Unable to start: Origin is currently not running. Please make sure that Origin is running before attempting to play The Sims 4 [d3382ced:984c6a38:00000000]” Kamal: Thanks. Kamal: Would you mind if I place your chat on hold for couple of minutes to look into the issue? you: Not at all, take your time. Kamal: Thank you. Kamal: Thanks for waiting. Kamal: I have consulted your case with our specialists. Kamal: Have you tried to repair your game? you: I haven’t, but I’ve seen from other Simmers that it didn’t work. Should I try it myself? Kamal: Yes try that and let me know what happens. Kamal: Select the My Games in Origin Right-click your game tile. Select “Repair Game.” you: I know what to do, it’s repairing now. Kamal: Please go ahead. Kamal: Please let me know after doing that. you: of course you: The base game has repaired itself, I’m just waiting for my Expansion/Game/Stuff Packs Kamal: Alright. Kamal: Is it done now? you: Yes, it is. Should I try starting the game? Kamal: Yes. you: It gave me the same error. Kamal: Alright. Kamal: Please uninstall Origin then delete these three folders: c:\ProgramData\Origin\ c:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Origin c:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Origin (usually already gone after uninstalling) you: My save files will stay in tact, right? Kamal: Yes. you: Okay, thank you. Kamal: You are welcome. you: And after that? Kamal: Then check your game. you: I have to download and install it again. Kamal: Yes. Kamal: Have you done that? you: It’s downloading right now. Kamal: Alright thanks. Kamal: Is it done now? you: Not quite, it’s about half way. Kamal: Okay. Kamal: Have you done that? you: About 3 minutes left. Kamal: Alright. you: The base game is done, now I’m just waiting for my Expansion/Game/Stuff packs. Kamal: Alright please go ahead. info: There may be a problem communicating with Kamal. Please wait while your chat is transferred to another EA Advisor. info: You are now ready to chat with Marlon. Marlon: Thanks for holding, my name’s Marlon, with Electronic Arts. I’ll be just one more moment as I go over your case notes, then we can get started. you: Okay Marlon: Hi there and thanks for waiting, are you currently downloading the Sims 4? you: It finished downloading, so I clicked play. I’m waiting for it to load now. you: And it gave me the same error message as before. Marlon: Alright cool, Marlon: May I know what is the error message? you: “Unable to start: Origin is currently not running. Please make sure that Origin is running before attempting to play The Sims 4 [d3382ced:984c6a38:00000000]” Marlon: I see, please follow these steps carefully so that you will not need to download the games again.
Log out from Origin and exit the app then press and hold the windows key + R on the keyboard and then on the small box copy and paste this link C:\ProgramData\ and hit Ok, once you have the windows open look for Origin folder and delete it
After that do the same steps for this last two links: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\ C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\ Then open Origin and wait for the client to verify the game files you: Should I try opening the game now? Marlon: How is it going? Marlon: Yes please. you: I have to update the game, one moment. Marlon: Sure thing. you: I got the error again. Marlon: Can you also reinstall the Origin? you: Yes, I can. Will my save files stay in tact when I uninstall Origin? Marlon: Yup, your save files will not be affected when reinstalling the Origin application. you: Something failed with the installation, I have to try again. Marlon: Okay, let me know if you will still get the same error message after you install the Origin. you: Okay. you: Origin has installed and updated, I’m attempting to run the game. Marlon: Alright you: It loaded! you: Thank you very much! Marlon: Yey! You are very much welcome! Marlon: Anything else before we end the chat? you: Is there a way to get a copy of this chat so I can use it as reference or help out other people? Marlon: Yup, you can click on the Email button and it will be sent to your email address you: thank you very much! Marlon: My pleasure to help you out! Alright! Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts™! You may now click the End Chat button to save your case. Have a good one! you: You too!
And that was what worked for me! I hope something from this helps you with your game too!
