Dancing Stephanie - Story template for creating new stories

Version 1.10.0

Overview

Dancing Stephanie is a story template that can be used as a starting point to create new stories.
All you need to do is to import the story to CSC and start working from there.


It consists of:

Dancing Stephanie Template story file

Based on Original Story story files (from 0.18.2 release).
All story-specific logic is removed.
Preserved Inspect, Take, Use With actions for all items.
Preserved Drink action for all booze.
"Use with" logic from each of the items is removed (since it was Original Story specific).
Preserved Open, Clock, Lock, Unlock actions for all doors, and functionality of two Key items.
Open will automatically unlock and open the doors if having the key.
Tiny Key will open Bike Lock that bars closet doors in the spare room, and make it fall on the ground.
Can climb on the roof, using the gutter.
Preserved Sit action for all chairs/sofas/beds.
Preserved Sit action for the hot tub, including restriction on clothing.
Preserved Lay Down action for master bedroom bed.
Preserved function of the Camera. It starts disabled (no SD card).
The thermostat will change the temperature.
Sleazy Sancho is mounted to the wall and can be poked.

Can pick up Starbomb Box and use Throw One action. Includes changing lightning of fire pit, if thrown on it.
Beer Pong works.
Both speakers are functional as separate entities and can be controlled with TV controls or remote to play any song.
All game characters have Inspect, Talk and Give actions (with all original story logic stripped).
Player character has clothing options preserved.
Added following events on new game start:
*Display welcome message pop-up.
*Enable Stephanie.
*Reenable camera (as if SD card was inserted).
*Hide dead snake, oil trail and duplicate copy of collar.
*Lock closet doors in the spare room that has a bike lock.

Re: [Story Template] Dancing Stephanie [0.10.4] {CSC 0.8.0}

I've uploaded new version (1.0.1).

Main difference is that game start event that handles environment is moved to new Phone Call character file.

I did it this way, so that creators that opt not having Stephanie in the story, can still keep all setup scripts for camera, speakers and such running, as long as they keep Phone Call character file.

Re: [Story Template] Dancing Stephanie [0.11.3] {CSC 0.8.0}

I've uploaded new version (1.0.2). This one is based on 0.11.3 original story files

Most changes are fixes to typos when inspecting objects, but other changes include new inspect description for Katherine and added interactions to second patio chair that is outside.

I may do another update when new Custom Story Creator version is out, to verify at that point if maybe I have missed something.

Re: [Story Template] Dancing Stephanie [0.11.3] {CSC 0.11.3}

I've uploaded new version (1.0.3). This one is updated through new 0.11.3 story creator.

The only noticeable change is that I've expanded on what can be done with Stephanie. So this will make this mini-story a little bit more interesting for non-story creators.

Re: [Story Template] Dancing Stephanie [0.12.3] {CSC 0.11.3}

Version 1.0.4 release

It was made compatible with 0.12.3, but is still based on 0.11.3 original story files, and was created with 0.11.3 story creator.
In future, I'll create proper 0.12.3 version, when new CSC arrives.

Also, I've added Brittney in the mix, so Stephanie does not dance alone. :D
