Classification: Equipment?

I think this function should be in the Item Management page, not the Equipment page. Although it does return a diverse type of equipments, it also tells you about types that are not equipments (familiar larva, mp restore, etc.). I think to_slot() is sufficient for determining exactly what kind of equipment an item is (excluding shields). --PhilmASTErpLus 03:02, 6 July 2010 (UTC)

  • Quite right. Even the code sample involves booze and food. In a related vein, what's with the special note that it always returns an empty string for non-equipment? It returns an empty string for some non-equipment (black pixel, clown skin, divine noisemaker), but not others (sugar shard, lemon, pine wand, barrrnacle) --Bale 05:59, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Bale, I'm pretty sure I copy-pasta'd that from previous info. As for a list... is this by chance on the Coldfront wiki somewhere? If so, we should just link to that, as maintaining such a list is probably beyond what can be expected on this site. --StDoodle (#1059825) 07:56, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Poking around a bit. I found Item Types, but mafia does not support all those item types. Combat items for instance return a blank string. I think Heeheehee pulled that info out of the source. --Bale 08:28, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
  • Heeheehee, is there a specific file that we could point to on the repo for mafia that would allow those who are curious to see the full, updated list? I hesitate to give this its own page, as I just don't see the use beyond weapon types. Though I could be missing something. --StDoodle (#1059825) 10:31, 6 July 2010 (UTC)
    • No list, as far as I'm concerned. I think I generated a map, using something like:
ash item[string]map; foreach i in $items[] if(!map contains i.item_type()) map[i.item_type()] = i; foreach i in map print(i+": "+map[i]);
Found them -- Lines 588-632 of list all of the non-weapons; all of the weapons and off-hands can be found starting with line 430 of equipment.txt. --Heeheehee 17:02, 6 July 2010 (UTC)


Yup, this page needs to be significantly edited.

  • Change category to Item Management (note: when this is done, make sure the appropriate category pages are updated)
  • Change wording on what is returned
    • Weapon type link should stay; that's a "major use" I'd think
    • I dunno what to do about the other possibilities; would appreciate feedback (this is the major hurdle for me)
  • Change "Special" based on actual use; does mafia parse actual item desc.'s or have a static list?

Whoever wants to have a go at this is welcome; just make sure to heed my note about changing categories to avoid confusion. Thanks! --StDoodle (#1059825) 05:59, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
