  • What is the practical syntax for ???

    Updates to Learn/Train and Selftrain Commands
    L
    Selftrain Command
    • You can now self-train up to a maximum of 25 ranks at a time.
    • The previous maximum number of ranks you could train at at time was one.


    Unlike the new loot command....there was no practical IG examples given on how to use this update.

    IG I see...


    selftrain

    Usage: selftrain <action name | skill name> [with skill name] [# <number>]


    What the heck does this mean? I have tried several adaptations based on the above with no success

    Can someone assist with a real practical example without all the < > and [ ]

    selftrain knives with general # 10
    You know more than one skill that matches what you may be attempting to selftrain.

    1. Knives
    2. Knives Accuracy
    3. Knives Grip

    Which skill are you wishing to train in?
    1
    You begin to train yourself in Knives.
    You begin to mimic the moves more accurately.
    You successfully train to rank 1010 in Knives.

        Maybe you're not as familiar with TEC command syntax, but for future reference in understanding it...

        In the example of
        Code:
        selftrain <action name | skill name> [with skill name] [# <number>]

        1. No surrounding brackets means the keyword is required.
        E.g. selftrain remains as is.


        2. If something is surrounded in <> then that part should be replace by whatever it's describing.
        <action name | skill name> should be replaced by "Chop" or "Stab" or "Swat" or "Unjam" etc. The action or skill you which to selftrain.
        E.g.
        selftrain chop


        3. If something is surrounded in [] then that part is optional.
        [with skill name] [# <number>] you can leave them out of the command and it will still work.
        E.g.
        selftrain chop
        selftrain chop with general
        selftrain chop with axes
        selftrain chop with general # 10
        selftrain chop # 10


        That being said, technically it should be....
        Code:
        selftrain <action name | skill name> [with <skill name>] [# <number>]
        but you get what is meant.
        A woman in a shiny boison helmet with an absurdly tall dome says to a ram in Cineran, "Oh yes, hit me now, you bad bad bad sheep."
        A woman in a shiny boison helmet with an absurdly tall dome is stunned.
        A ram bumps roughly into a woman in a shiny boison helmet with an absurdly tall dome with its head!.
