    it's not in the current engine. I would've found that by now. maybe I took it out because of bugs
    ok, here it is: iiyo/WebStory-Engine#11
    I should've documented my architectural decisions somewhere, because now I have no fucking clue why I took that out again ;D

    LOL
    That makes working in your engine all the much more fun :P

    @jsteinbeck

    I think now that we use CommonJS, it would be neat to think about a better way to write extensions. maybe a command line interface would be a good thing for that. it would also allow us to write a packer so that games can be shipped as zipped websites without the need for a server. that's what I did with my toothrot engine
    does anyone of you guys know about a pluggable menu system for JS games? I wrote the one in toothrot myself, but didn't write it as a library
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    my rewrite of toothrot, my text game engine, is almost complete. you can play a test game here: http://toothrot.iiyo.org/games/toothrot2/
    it now works a little more like lifeline

    Hello Jonathan! Good to see you again buddy :)
    I know I owe you documentation for the visual novel engine sorry
    I always felt guil
    Guilty for that
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    hi! :) you don't owe me anything, dude. no need to feel guilty about that
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    how are your creative projects doing?
    Pablo Martínez Merin
    @pablote2es_twitter
    Good! I wrote a new interactive fiction
    And a novel in amazon with a friend :)
    All sadly in spanish
    How about you?
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    nice!
    why does it use three.js? is there a 3D part somewhere?
    Pablo Martínez Merin
    @pablote2es_twitter
    Yes there is a small part in 3D, just for an effect :)
    I will check toothrot!

    Hello Jonathan, it looks very cool
    There's not any example of a finished work though, right?
    In Toothrot I mean
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    Thanks! No, unfortunately there isn't yet. I want to write one though
    Pablo Martínez Merin
    @pablote2es_twitter
    It's ok, let's see if I manage to do it first ;)
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    Haha, nice
    Btw you can now write scripts that get executed each turn, on each section entry and on entering one specific section or node
    And you can also use script slots from the section and the head to insert stuff into nodes
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    And scripts can see other events generated in the turn, e.g. to implement npcs talking to each other

    It's like having a full-fledged text adventure world model in a Twine-like game writer... nice!
    You only need to implement relative positions of objects with other objects (e.g. a box on top of a table) and you'll have Inform with links :smile:
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    Lol, not exactly, but it's certainly possible to write more complex games with it than twine right out of the box
    The big difference is that you're in full control of what the player can choose, so you don't really need that sophisticated of a world model. It's not like the player can push a box from a table of you don't want them to
    *off of

    I will use toothrot for my next Sillyberry, and I will try to test as many components in it as I can ;)
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    Yay 😀
    Pablo Martínez Merin
    @pablote2es_twitter
    I will try to translate it into English for you as well
    Although you'll have to double-check my shitty english :P
    Jonathan Steinbeck
    @jsteinbeck
    Thanks 😳
    No worries, I'm not a native speaker, I probably won't even notice 😂
