Various module questions

  1. Is there a way to make an at-start counter immovable? I am using a counter as a, well, counter (for damage - all it is is a blank square with a text label in the middle tied to a Dynamic Property, a key to increment the value, and a key to decrement it), and I want it to stay in a particular spot in relation to the map.

  2. When using a TriggerAction that fires based on one property being equal to another, I have to specify it as “PropertyA=$PropertyB$”. Is this the way it is intended to work (as opposed to just “PropertyA=PropertyB”)? Presumably, it’s done this way on purpose so the right-hand value can be a constant (e.g. “PropertyA=Yes” means "if Property A is ‘Yes’ " as opposed to “if Property A equals Property Yes”).

  3. Is it possible to set a numeric valued Layer’s minimum or maximum value equal to a property? Whenever I try it, and then try to edit the Layer’s properties, the value is replaced with a number.

Use the ‘Does Not Stack’ trait with the 'move piece" option set to “Never”.

That is exactly right.

The left hand side is always evaluated as a property name, but also allows $…$ values to be used which allows you to use 1 level of indirection.

If row = 1 and col = 3 then

cell-$row$-$col$=23

checks to see if the Value of a property names ‘cell-1-3’ is equal to ‘23’.

NOTE: This somewhat confusing and arbitrary evaluation pattern will be superceded in the future (3.3ish) and replaced with a consistent and fully featured language (Java) using Beanshell. Full backward-compatibility will be maintained, so any modules with existing $…$ property expressions will work unchanged.

I’m not sure I follow the question. Are you actually talking about a Dynamic Property with a numeric value, rather than the Layer trait? If so, the answer is No.

Something I plan to clean up in 3.2 is to make it clear which fields allow properties and which don’t. Those that allow properties will have a small Calculator icon next to them.

That’s exactly what I meant.

Botany, the study of plants, occupies a peculiar position in the history of human knowledge. ,For many thousands of years it was the one field of awareness about which humans had anything more than the vaguest of insights. It is impossible to know today just what our Stone Age ancestors knew about plants, but form what we can observe of pre-industrial societies that still exist a detailed learning of plants and their properties must be extremely ancient.
,wow power leveling,
This is logical. Plants are the basis of the food pyramid for all living things even for other plants. They have always been enormously important to the welfare of people not only for food, but also for clothing, weapons, tools, dyes, medicines, shelter, and a great many other purposes. Tribes living today in the jungles of the Amazon recognize literally hundreds of plants and know many properties of each. To them, botany, as such, has no name and is probably not even recognized as a special branch of " knowledge" at all.wow gold,

Unfortunately, the more industrialized we become the farther away we move from direct contact with plants, and the less distinct our knowledge of botany grows. Yet everyone comes unconsciously on an amazing amount of botanical knowledge, and few people will fail to recognize a rose,an apple, or an orchid.flyff penya, When our Neolithic ancestors, living in the Middle East about 10,000 years ago, discovered that certain grasses could be harvested and their seeds planted for richer yields the next season the first great step in a new association of plants and humans was taken. Grains were discovered and from them flowed the marvel of agriculture: cultivated crops.flyff penya, From then on, humans would increasingly take their living from the controlled production of a few plants, rather than getting a little here and a little there from many varieties that grew wild- and the accumulated knowledge of tens of thousands of years of experience and intimacy with plants in the wild would begin to fade away.
wow gold,
In the last decades, the development of market oriented economy has brought a large number of newly emerging things into our daily life. Yet when it comes to one of these new things lottery, welfare lottery in particular, some people believe that it creates a good social atmosphere while others argue that the opposite is true. There is probably a little bit of truth in both statements. But in recent years, lottery has done a lot to support the view that it does more good than harm.
wow gold,
On one hand, welfare lottery encourages people to do small kindness for the welfare of others as well as for the profit of oneself. When we read the daily newspapers, we are ,wow gold,
frequently appraised of the “Big Kindness” performed by well-to-do philanthropists who donate large sums of money for the establishment of schools, libraries, free hospitals for the poor, orphanages,and the like. These, of course, are laudable acts of charity that deserve wide public acclaim. But in my estimation, not all the people have the financial ability to support these “Big Kindness”,archlord money,and those many minor acts of kindness performed daily in different situations by public minded citizens who receive no recognition or praise from the mass media are equally commendable.Similarly, welfare lottery provide the majority of people a chance to perform this kind of small kindness.

I believe we’ve been spammed.

So I shouldn’t respond?

I had a very insightful post already prepared.
