This is what I use:

Server Folder/plugins/MYSQL.pl
#::: Akkadius
#::: Description: These plugins are MySQL loaders in use with Perl DBI
#::: For plug and play, LoadMysql will load your database credentials from eqemu_config.json

sub LoadMysql {	
	use DBI;
	use DBD::mysql;
	use JSON;
    	my $json = new JSON();

	#::: Load Config
	my $content;
	open(my $fh, '<', "eqemu_config.json") or die "cannot open file $filename"; {
		local $/;
		$content = <$fh>;

	#::: Decode
	$config = $json->decode($content);

	#::: Set MySQL Connection vars
	$db = $config->{"server"}{"database"}{"db"};
	$host = $config->{"server"}{"database"}{"host"};
	$user = $config->{"server"}{"database"}{"username"};
	$pass = $config->{"server"}{"database"}{"password"};

	#::: Map DSN
	$dsn = "dbi:mysql:$db:$host:3306";
	#::: Connect and return
	$connect = DBI->connect($dsn, $user, $pass);
	return $connect;

If you want to pretty it up and make sure it all works and is tested that would be great.

Swap out special attacks for the new hotness and make sure that works and things should be good

I will make sure that all of this gets into our new docs we've been working on for 2018
Not a problem. It's something I've wanted to do for a little while. I would assume I'm the best person other than yourself to get it done since I've used it for years now and I am pretty familiar with the inner workings.

Current plans:
  • Update code to take advantage of the new special_abilities system
  • Migrate code to the plugins folder to free up space in zone_controller.pl
  • Clean up my existing pet scaling code that works with this system
  • Simple boolean option to use pet scaling or not
  • Add a way to not scale entire zones
  • Add a "don't scale me" option for specific NPCs while still scaling the rest of the zone

No what you have now should work I briefly tested it. When I get everything I want done it'll be a simple drag and drop into the appropriate folders and you won't have to do anything further assuming you have no other customizations in your zone_controller.pl

Since I'm trying to migrate to the plugins folder any added functionality past my list will be drag an drop as well.
