Cautionary Note: This Stupid Palace Trick uses "Perl," a tool that's easily found on the net for most any platform. It's not a built-in part of the Palace client, but as you'll see it has plenty of Palatial uses.
You can use props to alter a room, an especially-appealing notion if you're making your own room over on Members' Palace and want to use a widely-shared room GIF. Here's an excellent bit of room-improvement done in the spa by "Jules©"...
The difference is of course striking the catch is, it took Jules© a bit of forethought and a good deal of patience to place all 71 props. What happens when Jules© crashes and the Palace server erases this room; or worse yet, someone errantly types "clean"?
Fear not, there is a Stupid Palace Trick for just the occasion.
To do this trick, you need the following items:
Now, with these tools, we can set-dress a room in our own palace, then use perl to make us a new iptscrae cyborg script that will automatically dress any room based on our setdressing "at home." The dressing can be simple or fancy, and the perl script will pre-tune the file to avoid flooding.
So just follow these simple steps:
perl roomprops "The Spa" PServer.dat > spaprops.ipt
"spaprops.ipt"in our example here) to your
"Cyborg.ipt"file. You'll find that the
"spaprops.ipt"(or whatever you named it) file even has instructions, already embedded right into it.
