    Daniel (the Eliot developer) wrote and maintains the Love/Hate integration. I totally forgot to add this to the Love/Hate manual. I've made a note to add it to the manual in the next update. Thanks for the reminder!

    Hi @Cartoon-Mania - No official integration is planned, but Love/Hate is designed to easily integrate with other assets by providing all the events and delegates necessary, so you can integrate it with a minimum of programming.

    I am not in a hurry. I hope you will provide integration with Game Creator as well.

    I'll add it to the consideration list. If there's enough demand for it, I'll look into an official integration.

    Updated Dialogue System Integration

    The Love/Hate Extras page has an updated integration package for the Dialogue System for Unity. It improves the Lua functions so they can also find faction members by their actor names in your dialogue database or by their faction names, in addition to their GameObject names.

    The ReportDeed() Lua function also accepts "faction=FactionName" as the target. If the target starts with "faction=", then the deed will be reported to all faction members that belong to the faction FactionName.

    The version number has been corrected on the Asset Store. So if you've been waiting to update to 1.9.11, now's the time to do it, especially if you've been waiting for Game Creator integration.

    The Pixel Crushers discord server is now open for business: https://discord.gg/FwUaCNt

    The discord server is a place for the community to discuss assets and help each other out with quick questions, but not as a primary support channel. For support questions, please post here or on the Pixel Crushers forum since discord isn't a good way to provide answers that other people can easily find in the future.

    Hi,

    I'm planning to get this asset, but I'm asking if it has something like reputation system built in, like if I complete quests or do other tasks my reputation with a certain faction/clan goes up, starting with hatred -> neutral -> friendly or something like this.

    I also want to combine this with the dialogue system and display different dialogues depending on the current reputation with the certain faction.

    Hi @skinwalker - That's exactly what it's for. It's like a faction system on steroids.

    That's what Love/Hate's included Dialogue System integration does. You can also change reputation through dialogue choices, too, of course.

    Im using the odin serializer for saving and loading, I guess its possible to integrate it with this system and save the characters state?

    Yes, you could, but there's generally no need. Love/Hate includes serialization methods (FactionManager.SerializeToString and FactionMember.SerializeToString) and a save system. It's the same save system used by the Dialogue System and Quest Machine. But if you end up using Odin to saving, just call Love/Hate's SerializeToString methods and save those with Odin.

    I saw the methods for saving, but Im wondering if I can specify the path where they are exported (in the Appdata) and a custom folder like Saves/Slot1/...

    Hi @skinwalker- By default, DiskSavedGameDataStorer saves in Application.persistentDataPath. On Windows, this is in AppData / LocalLow / Company / Game. If you want to save somewhere else, you can make a copy of the DiskSavedGameDataStorer script and replace the GetSaveGameFilename() method. Then add your copy to the Save System GameObject. I'll make this method virtual in a future update so you can subclass DiskSavedGameDataStorer if you prefer. Or you can write your own saved game data storer script (there's a starter template in Common/Templates) and use that instead.

    Okay, I would just like to make a folder there called "Saves" and then "Slot1", "Slot2" etc depending on the slot, so I can keep the data easily accessible.

    Sure, just copy the script as I mentioned above, or subclass it in the next update.

    Hello TonyLi, I have a question about Trait Alignment Importance option. In manual it says it doubles impact effect if it is set to 100. In my test where i give deed with a impact of 13 and lawfulness trait of 100 to a charater with the same lawfulness - it outputs 52 affinity change, which is quadrupled. Why? I thought it should be doubled. Furthermore if Alignment Importance is set to 0, which should not modify impact at all - it outputs 26 instead of 13, and when Alignment is set to 1 it outputs 200. Where is this numbers are coming from, is this expected behavior? Because i thought in cases like this, when both traits matching - the alignment is 100%, meaning full, unmodified impact of 13. Why value is doubled with a 0 alignment importance and why it is 200 with 1 importance?

    Hi @IanItor - The base change in affinity is:

    affinityChange = confidence * impact * affinityToTarget

    If the witness is witnessing the deed directly, it has 100% confidence. (Unless you've assigned your own delegate to its GetTrustInSource delegate.)

    Let's say the witness has 100% confidence, the impact is 13, and the witness has 100% affinity to the target. Then the base affinityChange is 13.

    The base affinityChange can then be modified by Trait Alignment Importance and Arousal Importance. But if both of these are zero, they shouldn't affect it.

    If you tick the Faction Member's Debug Eval Func checkbox, it will log the results of evaluating each deed.

    Do the numbers look correct?

    Does it perhaps log twice? Maybe you're reporting the deed twice.

    To keep things simple i have no relationships between the characters (but below it says affinity to target is 100, i dont know why), the PAD values are all at zero as well as Arousal Importance. Also when i tried to change princess's relationships to player to different values in a Debug it says affinity is 100 regardless of my input.

    Love/Hate: NPC.EvaluateRumor actor:player tag:MyDeed target:princessimpact:13 aggression:0 source:NPC
    confidence in source: 100%
    affinity to target: 100
    change in affinity to actor based on impact, target & confidence: 13
    + trait alignment modifier: 0 (based on 100% alignment)
    + arousal modifier: 0 (based on 0 arousal)
    = final change in affinity to actor: 13
    power difference: 1(me) - 1(actor) = 0 (adjust dominance change up by 9,767092%)
    P,A,D change: 26, 0, 0

    Love/Hate: NPC.RememberRumor actor:player target:princess affinityChange:26,00

    In Console there is only two logs, one for evaluate and another for remember rumor.
    I directly calling a function of deed comitting via the button to specified character.

    Hi @IanItor - A patch is available on the Love/Hate Extra Downloads page that has two relevant changes:
    1. Deed evaluation applies the change in affinity to the relationship. In version 1.10.0, it incorrectly applied the change in pleasure, which is usually similar to the change in affinity but a little more extreme.
    2. The way trait alignment is computed has been improved.
    The patch should make the numbers more in line with what you expect. One additional thing to be aware of is the Power Difference Curve. You may want to set the value at 0 (i.e., same power levels) to be 0:

    upload_2019-9-18_21-49-45.png

    The default curve actually applies a little extra dominance when the power levels are the same, which may throw off the numbers you're expecting:

    Hi,

    How would I going about displaying the faction drop down in the inspector of my own scripts. I am referring to the drop down called "faction" that can be seen in the faction member script. It is the drop down showing all the factions I have created.

    What I am doing is trying to set the faction id from my spawner script through the inspector. It works if I manually input the appropriate faction id int into a public variable but I was trying to make it cleaner and less chance of error.

    Thank you,

    Hi,
    I'll add a [FactionPopup] attribute in the next release. In the meantime, you can get the attribute in a patch on the Love/Hate Extras page. This patch adds a [FactionPopup] attribute that you can apply to an int variable to show it as a faction popup menu. It uses the faction database in the current scene. Use [FactionPopup(true)] if the scene doesn't have a faction database.

    Now I finally got all the 3 assets and can't wait to try them next month. One question do they support EasySave3 for saving and loading?

    Thanks! Yes, all 3 assets use the same save system, so there's no code duplication. And the save system supports EasySave3 without requiring any scripting. Just import Plugins / Pixel Crushers / Dialogue System / Third Party Support / Easy Save Support and add an ESSavedGameDataStorer to your save system instead of the built-in DiskSavedGameDataStorer or PlayerPrefsSavedGameDataStorer. Then it will automatically use EasySave3.
