Reputation Greetings

Post by Texafornian »

This is how Greeting chances are currently distributed in settlements:

Settlement, Exterior:
0-59: Settlement-specific Greeting 9
60-100: Generic province-wide Greeting 9 (Identical to vanilla's atm)

Settlement, Unique Interior:
0-59: Settlement-specific Greeting 9
60-100: Interior-specific Greeting 9 (DSW MG, Ra-Habi Company Hall, etc.)

Vanilla reputation is only associated with the Greeting 8 entries (and two crime level entries), but those additionally require specific player clothing values and a Random100 chance of 0-10 to fire (10% chance). I think our Hold and Skyrim-wide reputation greetings should only rely on reputation values. We could get these to fire and block vanilla's clothing greetings for SHOTN NPCs by placing the Hold and Skyrim-wide reputation entries at the top of Greeting 8 like this:
Spoiler
BEGIN SHOTN GREETING 8
Random100 <= 2, Sky_Hold >= 0, Skyrim-wide rep >= 80
Random100 <= 5, Sky_Hold >= 0, Skyrim-wide rep >= 80
Random100 <= 2, Sky_Hold >= 0, Skyrim-wide rep >= 60
Random100 <= 5, Sky_Hold >= 0, Skyrim-wide rep >= 60
...
Random100 <= 5, Sky_Hold == 0, Reach rep >= 80
Random100 <= 10, Sky_Hold == 0, Reach rep >= 80
Random100 <= 5, Sky_Hold == 0, Reach rep >= 60
Random100 <= 10, Sky_Hold == 0, Reach rep >= 60
...
END SHOTN GREETING 8
Assuming you meet at least the local Hold's reputation requirements:
  • There'd be a 10% chance of getting a reputation-related greeting.
  • If you have a high enough Skyrim-wide rep, then you'd have a 6% chance of getting a Skyrim entry and a 4% chance of getting a Hold entry.
  • If you have a low Skyrim-wide rep, then you'd have a 10% chance of getting a Hold entry.

New Greetings distributions in settlements with above setup:

Settlement, Exterior:
0-10: SHOTN Greeting 8 entries (or settlement-specific Greeting 9 if no reputation)
11-59: Settlement-specific Greeting 9
60-100: Generic province-wide Greeting 9

Settlement, Unique Interior:
0-10: SHOTN Greeting 8 entries (or settlement-specific Greeting 9 if no reputation)
11-59: Settlement-specific Greeting 9
60-100: Interior-specific Greeting 9
