I'm not sure how all the data that is tied to my character is kept, whether it is a table of ME somewhere, or just an id tag that is applied to certain strings of data in various tables so that those particular values know they apply to me. AND I'm not a huge coding genius, and so was wondering if someone could explain to me how TS have set up the characters details...
This has all come about because I am curious as to whether it would be possible to look up how many times I have jumped. Now this isn't really for the achievement side of things for me, it's really just a very very stubborn curiosity- which starts me asking questions like how is that info kept? and can I look it up? is it possible to look it up through use of the API? which leads to OTHER questions about everything in UR.....
I can look at my character and see that I have received all sorts of achievement badges, or even goto the encyclopedia, or helperator and see what I have and have not achieved, but I can not know how many holes dug, times jumped, recipes cooked, things planted/seasoned etc.
Is this because the information that says I have completed "X" action "Y" times is hard to find, because it is written NOT to be found? Or is it not stored in a straightforward(ish) manner?
Gah, this is getting long winded... and might just look like random babble to everyone, lbut someone let me know Why/How if possible.... otherwise this thought train will just continue to laps in my head making me bother Devs who should be doing other stuff than fending me and my difficult questions off.
OH NOES... the train didn't stop at the station........ I know that how housing is currently done will disappear soon enough, BUT I was also wondering if there is a way for me to see who's been in my house lately- kinda like an automatic guest/log book? OR is the information that player Z has been in my house not linked to the location that is my house (like a log book, even if I can not see it), and it's my house's ID that is on the player letting them know that they have been there before, but not with a value/tag that is searchable for?
I'm going to finish this post before someone kills me for taking all the forum space up :S
