Structurally, it is pretty simple. I can build something that looks kind of like this:
[aran] I be right sure there be someplace more private...
IF AreaCheck = 1 then goto transition1
transition1 [aran] (The rough stone of the alcove is cool to the touch, hiding you both.)
But there are challenges, including avoiding repetition.

I am playing the beta with Aran and in TOB, when he tried to flirt the PID option came instead. Every 2 seconds or so.
I have asked him to stop flirting and everything is going well.
I am past saradush, having complete gromnir and all the little task in the city and he hasn't started a dialogue.
Is it normal? :S

Second point, confirmed and "fixed" on GitHub, but not tested... none of the NPC-initiated flirt materials had made it over to the ToB.
I am wishing that I had done what Amber (Darioas and Miera) did, and created "shell" scripting, because of the shared SoA/ToB content. I need to remember to put everything into one big huge file and traify it, then use that one file for everything in the mod, so that the files are not bloated with multiple lines. This will be pretty important in this mod, as there are plenty of examples of
+ ~RanomNum(5,1)~ + ~[PC] Heya~ + a1
+ ~RanomNum(5,2)~ + ~[PC] Heya~ + a2
+ ~RanomNum(5,3)~ + ~[PC] Heya~ + a3
+ ~RanomNum(5,4)~ + ~[PC] Heya~ + a4
+ ~RanomNum(5,5)~ + ~[PC] Heya~ + a5
used in both SoA and ToB content. No biggie when it is just SoA, as it will resolve to one strref;
+ ~RanomNum(5,1)~ + @1 + a1
+ ~RanomNum(5,2)~ + @1 + a2
+ ~RanomNum(5,3)~ + @1 + a3
+ ~RanomNum(5,4)~ + @1 + a4
+ ~RanomNum(5,5)~ + @1 + a5
but it means a duplicate line in the ToB content.
Sometime soon I will have to move up to Beta 2 and start a new thread, as I am getting confused in my worklogs!
