Time Length On Quests

Postby Epiales » Wed Oct 08, 2014 8:07 pm

I've watched the quest system from the older videos and have one setup now. I was wondering if there was a way, when someone finishes a quest, that you can put a time limt on when they can begin another quest? I might could figure this out with just a regular php variable, but the quests are in a while loop to echo them out in the game and I have no idea how I would implement such a thing when it's calling the quests from the database.
Nothing fancy, but a work in progress!

Hello, why not just store a 'last_quest_finished' timestamp and during the loop,
add an if to the quest echos by checking the timestamp if its enough old to allow the player to start another quest..
Why so serious?
