    What about an
    <ammo name="item name" type="item type" amount="amount to consume"/>
    This would allow for custom items to shoot/consume things other than bolts.

    The <ammo type="_" tag should be optional, defaulting to the name if not included
    and if name is not included it should default default to the type.

    I'd love to see resistances on weapons working properly. Blue Steel Sword, Timberbane and Magma Mace are all supposed to have resistances on them, but none show up when playing. That's some good item design space available, once resists on weapons are working as intended.

    Several items in my mod are cooler on paper than in practice because of that issue (and, to be fair, one is more powerful in practice than was intended, for the same reason).

    Custombreakables could use a bit of a clean-up and fix.

    They don't support descriptions, even though clearly the devs intended them to. The room with the fire and ice enchantments (don't recall if it's main game or Realm of the Diggle Gods) has those two desks that power the enchant spaces, and though they have descriptions in the file, the descriptions don't display currently.

    They also don't play sounds on breaking. I've tried the sfx command used in the breakables in branchDB.xml, but it doesn't seem to work in custombreakables.

    Fixing these would open up all sorts of other options for fancy room designs.

    Some way of cloning a target (both for summoning duplicates of the player, whether male or female, or enemy targets)

    Null Will Mod for Digglebucks

    Add a way to select a trigger only one time. To give example I mean something where you'd have a template and select only one enemy/tile from all possible in that template rather that simply having a chance for all.

    Null Will Mod for Digglebucks

    Make some way to truncate available targets to valid targets for triggered spells without requiring delays. For instance using a template and then targetmonster, then calling this effect thus making the animation and effect only play on monsters.

    Get ConsumeItemType to work on all recognized item types (bolt, thrown, shield, etc.) and for all spell purposes. And only consuming one of a stack when a stack is targeted.

    Great minds think alike, I suppose.

    Not sure if this has been suggested, but allow spells cast through rooms.xml to target items on the floor. Would allow for things like altars that cast Flames of the Heckforge.

    (If this is already possible and my wrestling with rooms.xml simply failed, please let me know. I've a mod in mind waiting.)

    EDIT: Also, the ability to set rooms.xml script trigger conditions upon items without ids so, for example, a gate could be opened by placing any liquor from your inventory on a specific tile.

    Allow items to use .xml animations. I'd like to make some items that have animations, but as of right now, .xml animations don't function on items.

    They're assembled out of text.xml by some sort of algorithm. I'm pretty certain I've seen words I added to that file show up when characters die.

  14. Just as a general rule of thumb for the developers: Whenever you add something like killer vegan, ancient kronian ritual, or bonuses while holding weapons, don't hardcode it, make hooks for them so other people can do similar things.

    Confirmation Spell Trigger

    Shows a confirmation dialog. If the user clicks 'OK', triggers a spell. If the user clicks 'Cancel' nothing happens.

    Replace the hardcoded confirmation dialogs from the Archaeology effects 'sacrificeartifact' and 'randomizeartifact' with this new trigger type.

  16. TriggeerOnGainLevel - you could use this to get a free hand grenade each time you level up, or whatever

    and/or the ability to put something like this in a mod skill:

    <ability name="Free Stuff" icon="foo.png" skill="bar" loadout="Free Item" level="1">

    Based on this: "ifPlayerInRange": runs something if the player is within the spell's area. IE: Obvious Fireball has no popup if you're about to nuke yourself, but if it sees you're in the spell's area it goes "Are you Nuclear Dan?" with a Yes/No.

    I can confirm that this is indeed in the main game, and works when modding rooms.

    Any chance the non-randomized resistances on weapons (timberbane, blue steel sword, magma mace, etc) are working in the new patch? I didn't see that here or in any of the other threads where you've talked about all the awesome new features of 1.0.10.

    P.S.: Thanks for all the great updates and info today!
