What about having a scripting command that would generate a random number and check it against a user defined success/fail number?
This would work pretty well with gathering bog iron with Rains Iron Weapons mod (just my opinion) wink.gif

So, it could work something like this:

.Bog Iron. "Stone" /90/ RANDOM(<=25, 0, 99)
{[TERRAIN:spruce_mire pine_mire open_mire]} 'Be in a Mire'

RANDOM(Success Parameter, Min Number, Max Number)
Gets a number from 0 to 99, if it is less than or equal to 25 we get Bog Iron!!! smile.gif)

I realize i have only thought about one use for this new scripting feature (digging bog iron) but maybe some other people have some ideas on how this could be used as well. Maybe we can get enough ideas and uses for this feature to make it worthwhile to impliment it in the scripting system. smile.gif)

Don't forget using them to get random results


.Bog Iron. (RNG,1,3) "Stone" /90/

digs up 1-3 bog iron per action
