Okay if anyone an answer this, I will be much obliged…
The Problem: CCH Part 1’s relationship coding is horrible. I would like to “fix” it for Part 2 to let me move forward more easily, but I want to do this in a way that does NOT ruin any of my readers’ saves for Part 1.
Nitty Gritty of the Problem: I didn’t use fairmath for relationships. I should have. As a result, I have some characters that are featured more prominently having higher relationship numbers than others, so there’s no one real “scale” that applies to everyone. For example, a +20 score is great for some characters and horrible for others. This makes it incredibly hard for me to move forward because I have to keep track of what is a “good” or “bad” relationship score for all my relationship stat checks.
Possible Fix: Could this work? Can I convert it all to fairmath in Part 2 without changing anything in Part 1?
I create a chart of all the characters from CCH Part 1 and figure out each of their respective “scales.” Then at the beginning of Part 2, I convert it all. For example…
*if dirtygirlrel > 60, set dirtygirl_newrel 75
*if dirtygirlrel > 30, set dirtygirl_newrel 50
*else set dirtygirl_newrel 25
So basically I’ve created a high score, a medium score, and a low score for her, and then I use fairmath for all subsequent increases and decreases.
Is this workable or am I destined to make my old system work no matter what?
