...to simplify things a ton, I'll just put this as the Inventor Starter description:

Code:
After using a time machine in G'nomish ruins in the present day, you end up in a small abandoned hut, which seems to have been raided by what your history teacher calls "Lumpies", blue catlike things that can use G'nomish technology. It's probably a good idea to rescue whoever lived in that hut, and an even better idea to grab some supplies...You grab a gonne, a claw that a Lumpkin must have dropped, and a strange object that looks like a key, as there is a contraption with a seat outside the smashed window...

...Or maybe I can shorten it further...
[img]Thanks to a strange machine that seems to have been a time machine, you are in a small, raided hut. Looks like the work of Lumpkins...Might as well rescue whoever was kidnapped. You grab a gonne, a dead Lumpkin's claw, and the unusual keys to a vehicle outside...[/img]
And forget Tinkerer or Techie. I will just make a book of some sort that can make you gain the arcane magic skill. And it's only readable by Inventors because it's written in lemon juice (hold it up to a candle to read it).
(Ohh, man, I should put this somewhere else...)

That should simplify things. A lot.
EDIT: Things are coming along fine, but Egomap often inserts spawn points, doesn't show objects after I put in a lot of objects, and crashes when I right-click spawn points....Work will continue very soon, because it's 10:58 Shocked .
EDIT 2: What will unlock the Inventor Starter:

Hmm. On second thought, maybe it should be something hidden in Highspire (G'nomish city). An unfinished time machine. You take a box of stuff next to it and bump the time machine, completing it, and suddenly it sputters to life. The Inventor (level 1, unarmed, wearing a t-shirt and jeans) poofs behind you, and when you bump him, he says, "What year is this? Where am I? Are you a G'nome??? Well, whatever the case, I have to get going! Bye!" and run off. He would talk to the police G'nome and then go to the city entrance, disappearing at the end of the map. If you bump him while he's running, he'll say, "Can't talk now!" and keep running. If you bump the police G'nome, the police G'nome will say, "He was just asking about someone who went missing recently."

1. Read the tutorial for EgoMap
2. Read the bottom of Readme.txt located in EgoMap folder to see some known bugs.
3. A bug that is not listed there is the import object bug. Two things you have to remember:
A. When importing/adding a new object into the module, you may have to save&load the module to make them appear.
B. After adding a new object into the module, save&load before editing or moving that object. If not, EgoMap will spawn starting points.

Thanks! Very Happy But why is it so buggy? Confused
EDIT: I forgot to mention, whenever I play it, it says "Press space to respawn". Also, I'm trying to figure out how a rescue mission would work; a G'nome would be guarded by a bunch of Lumpkins, and when they are all dead, THEN the G'nome would attack Lumpkins.

Because EgoMap is in alpha stage.

Sounds like you do not have a proper starting point.

All AI and such is done through Scripting. Which is a must if one wants to make an unique module. (With not only stuff copied from others).

Bgbirdsey said he got rid of crystalspace for Egomap2.
Maybe that will fix it...
