Do you know what the quest script length limit is in FNV?

I now do.

I slammed head first into it writing the sorters. 778 lines.

Used to be well over a thousand.

Stupid subpar programmers can't touch anything without fucking it up beyond all hope of repair...

Now I've got to create two more quests; and run each sorter on a separate script.


  1. Let me guess, the script length limit is Oblivion is higher than it is in FO3? If so, I am noticing a pattern here. I have to wonder then, how things will work with the new engine for Skyrim and any subsequent games using said engine.

  2. "Let me guess, the script length limit is Oblivion is higher than it is in FO3?"

    I don't have them open in front of me, but as I recall, yes; it is sticking with the pattern quite well.

    Damnably well.

  3. *sigh* Consistency is supposed to be a good thing. This, obviously, is not a good thing, nor does it seem to bode well for the flow of games on the next engine.

  4. More eye-candy and less content and gameplay has been the trend in the industry for quite some time now; the more I compare my favorite older games to my favorite newer games the more I see that this is true and is not likely to change anytime in the near future. Like any other commercial entities, game producers pander to the "oohs and ahhs" of the consumers because that is what sells their products, and quite often true quality is sacrificed to do so. I hope that some innovative game producers will take steps toward reversing that trend, but I'm not about to hold my breath while I wait for Skyrim because I fully expect it to be a shining example of that trend.

  5. They say Skyrim is a totally new engine; but every screenshot released I've seen has looked like just another Gamebryo derivative.

  6. Guess we will just have to wait and see. A little praying and/or blood sacrifice might be in order also >.<

  7. Well offer up your own blood; I've lost more than enough of my sanity and will to live to these damned games already.

  8. I was thinking more along the lines of the neighbourhood pet that won't stay out of your yard, or the individual down the street that makes you wonder why you still live where you do, or Justin Bieber. Even he has to be worth more points than some other celebrities I can think of.
