[How to] Use Books - Editing & Management
« on: March 16, 2014, 12:22:49 AM »
How to edit books:

  • Get a book.  :!
  • Press B to open your inventory
  • Move your cursor to the book & press LB

You will now see the book displayed, 'Untitled', with some options;
X Edit Title
A Open Book
Y Copy Book


Pressing X will Edit the Title of the book -the wording displayed on the front & name of the book in your inventory.

Pressing A to Open the book will offer options for turning & editing each of the pages.

Pressing Y will make a copy of the book to another blank book in your inventory.


Pressing B will close the book options, going back to your inventory menu

_______________


Book management:


There can be a maximum of 126 unique books per world. Unlimited copies of these books can be made

Make a copy of each book you make & store it somewhere safe.
Editing either copy of the book will change both books - So this copy will be the one used to make any further edits to the book you have placed elsewhere.

You can make as many copies of a book you wish - Editing any of them will change all of them, wherever they are in your world.


Keeping copies means you do not have to go and break your placed book & pick it up into your inventory if you want to edit it again.
Plus, storing copies of your books means you have a backup. -They cannot get mistakenly deleted, broken n lost.


I keep all my books in locked chests in my Admin HQ. From there i can edit every book placed around my world.

Opening the chest and pressing LB on the book will open the editing options. - You do not have to take the books out of the chest, or storage block.

Yes, anyone with Adventure permissions can open the unlocked container & read the book without having to take it.
Putting the book out means Adventurers can read it but not break, edit or take it.

Hey muD! I have a question you might know the anwser to, and also a suggestion for this post.

Can edited books be copied and saved as a component and be transferred to other worlds? I have heard conflictory (lets hope thats a word) information about this. Also, this would be kind of nice to include in your OP.

Unfortunately the data is not saved in books in components.

You have to open your inventory first, this is done by pressing B (with default controls)
