NWN1-Scripting: How to get the current Attack Bonus

Hello,

I wonder if there’s a way to get the current AB ob a creature via script. I found a function for the BAB, but nothing for the current AB.

Maybe there is a function I havn’t found so far?

Calculating the current AB via script should be possible, but quite difficult. But maybe, somebody has alredy done it?

I hope, that there is a way.

Ok, from the answers I see, that there is no easy way. :wink: So I created a prototype. It’s some 300 lines of ugly scripting, but it seams to work well. I post it her, just in case, somebody is interrested.

/* Script: zz_ab
Estimate the final attack bonus of a creature.
(right hand, 1st attack)

Any racial- or alignmentbased bonus is neglected.
(i.e. a “+5 vs. giants” which comes from a weapon-property
[sling] doesnt find it’s way into the calculation)

Needs an item which could be activated on a target and
launches the script via tagbased scripting. */
