Can other commands be run withing a /c

Post by bigmond »

When running a lua script with /c is there a way to run other commands withing the script.

My intention is to run a command from a mod but I guess the question applies to running any commands inside a /c lua script

Lets say this command for example

Code: Select all

/muppet_streamer_schedule_explosive_delivery {"explosiveCount":7, "explosiveType":"grenade", "target":"muppet9010", "accuracyRadiusMin":10, "accuracyRadiusMax":20}
Lets say for example I want to get an array of all players on the map and then loop through them using each entity as the target. How do I run this command from within a /c script.
Please no more spagetti, I cant eat any more.

Might be helpful:

Code: Select all

/c for _,player in pairs(game.players) do 
   game.print(player.name) 
end
I'm not sure, if the mod command is callable inside that, maybe you have to call the function name directly

No. According to the API doc LuaCommandProcessor does not have any method to call or retrieve the function associated with a command. In earlier versions it might've been possible to trigger it by raising on_console_command, but that's been blocked after 0.18.27. To be callable from script the implementing mod must offer a remote interface.
