How do you use book artifacts?

PostPosted by AkkBar00 » Sun Jul 30, 2017 00:37

I have been trying for a while now to activate the book artifacts. However they remain inactive even when the requirements I have been digging up in the mod files are fulfilled (8 learning and scholar trait). The artifact activation system works, as I have been able to activate the Glass Candles. But I keep failing at making the books active. Tried joining a society and using the scholarship focus.

So, any idea on what the problem is or what I am missing.

Using Congenital overhaul sub mod.

Books automatically activate when you meet the requirements. If you hover over one, the tooltip will tell you all of the requirements and which one you haven't met. Or, if you've met all of them, it'll say "Is active" above the requirements.
Herp derp, maybe I should read the entire post first.

Doesn't look like your game is inserting the scripted trigger into the artifact properly. Try commenting out the trigger in the artifact file (with a #) and then copy-pasting the requirements from the scripted trigger file into the artifact file, and seeing if that works.

If it does, you may want to see if Congenital Overhaul has a scripted trigger file that's blocking the base mod's. Doing so would require the CO dev to give his the same name as the AGOT's, which is horrid coding practice, but it's possible.

Managed to make it work! I started working on the base mod and replaced the can_use_book_trigger requirement in the artifact file at common for the content of that very same trigger (8 learning OR scholar trait) in the scripted_triggers file. Realized it may be mostly related to Congenital Overhaul so I checked it too, and indeed its missing the can_use_book_trigger in the scriped_triggers file. Added it. It works both on the base mod and the submod, even after I added those changes before checking CO.

Thanks for the help.

Sure thing. Might want to shoot the Congenital Overhaul dev a PM, reporting that bug. Have him stick that trigger in his scripted_triggers file. Or make an entirely new scripted_triggers file that doesn't supercede the base mod's.
