Room script help
 
I have a room script that works but I was looking for a way to expand it and got lost with the #if statements. Here is the script that works:

#TRIGGER {A green-leafed herb grows here.} {
#sub {A green-leafed bundle of five-finger herb grows here. (1 copper) %10}
#CW Springgreen
}

This script looks at the text in the room and works from that.

What I am looking to add is a way to tell me that if "A green-leafed herb grows here." is not written (which tells me that someone else already took it) the return text will not be "A green-leafed bundle of five-finger herb grows here. (1 copper)" but instead will be "Opps, looks like someone else beat you to this".

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

You can't really sub out what isn't there.
You might be able to rig something up with '#EVENT onRoomEnter {}' and a #WAITFOR with a timeout clause to #SAYADD the extra info.

Ah, that's why I could not make it work. Let me look at your suggestions. Thanks.

Those are CMUD suggestions, many of those features don't exist in zMUD.

Well...that creates an issue then. Again it's a room script so I thought I could just compare what is there and if it is there I use the script in my initial thread. If the text is not there...well that's whee I got bogged down in looking at the #IF statements.

Yea, I'm tryingt to think of a way that would work in zMUD.

Room script is good. Add this to it and see if it works:

#TEMP "herbFinder" {A green-leafed herb grows here.} {}
#ALARM "herbCheck" +5 {#IF (%trigger(herbFinder) {#SAY {Opps, looks like someone else beat you to this.}}
