DO NOT put one on each side - unlike Gate Guards, these guys don't play well with others. If you want players to be able to sneak by them, merely make sure they can't see sneaking or invis - whichever. The hiding player will have to wait for another player to get the door open to sneak through.

In the first example every 10-20 ticks, there is a 25% chance that the object with this property will select one of the emotes randomly and perform it for all those in the same room who can see it. In the second example, a smell based emote will be performed 25% of the time, but will only emote 10 times before the behavior is removed from the object. In the third example, there is a 100% chance that, if the object is in room Here#1 or Here#2, it will emote one of the two choices. In the fourth example, a sound based emote will be performed 25% of the time in the room of the behavior, and in any adjacent rooms.


You can also mix and match the types of emotes by putting the keywords SIGHT, SMELL, NOISE, and SOCIAL as the first word in each emote string. This denotes the type of emote for the rest of the string. The last example shows how to enter a mixed emote.

Examples: burst=2

health=5 hits=2 mana=5 hits=10 burst=2 health=5

Description: This allows the room, possessed item, or ridden mob or item to give an extra burst of speed to all affected mobs. The parameters are all optional. If the "health" parameter is given, then the mob will get a number of regen ticks equal to the number given. For instance, if the value is 2, then the mob will regen twice per tick, a value of 3 means 3 times per tick, etc. Values of 1 or less mean no extra regen ticks. The "burst" parameter refers to bursts of extra speed to the benefiting mobs equal to the number given. For instance, if the value is 2, the mob will move twice as fast per tick, a value of 3 means 3 times as fast, etc. Values of 1 or less mean normal ticking applies. Values for hits, move, and mana are similar to health, but will only give a burst or rejuvenation to that particular stat.

(OFFENSIVE,DEFENSIVE,MIXEDOFFENSIVE,MIXEDDEFENSIVE) (MINTICKS="NUM" MAXTICKS="NUM" CHANCE="NUM")

Examples: Fighter

Paladin

Description: An extension of CombatAbilities, this behavior makes the mob a Fighter by class, and gives the mob fighter skills appropriate to its level. After this behavior has triggered, it will often require a RESET for any level changes to the mob to take over.

Use the proficient flag to make all skills at 100% instead of level-based. Use the offensive/.../mixeddefensive flags to influence skill choices. This behavior should not be used WITH any of the other CombatAbilities behaviors, such as Fighterness, Thiefness, Mageness, Clericness, Druidness, or CombatAbilities. It should be used alone on a mob.

Also, be aware that this behavior will modify the mobs stats to better reflect the class, so any additions or removals of this behavior should be accompanied by a room reset after saving, and manually checking to make sure the combat stats are as desired.

Parameters: min, max, pct (inv) (group) (nofollowers) (wander)

(follow mask) (name="name")

Examples: min=1 max=1 chance=50 -race +elf

group nofollowers -race +elf +gnome min=4 max=20 chance=100 inv -race +elf +gnome

Description: The mob with this behavior will follow any other mob that leaves the room. Following normally happens on the tick, but if minticks and maxticks are -1, it will be instant. A chance percentage (1-100) parameter may be given to better randomize the opportunity. A GROUP flag may also be included to make the mob join the targets group instead of merely following them out of the room. The rate of non-grouping following is dictated by the min and max ticks. The NOFOLLOWERS flag will make sure that this behavior does not trigger when the mob has someone following him/her. The WANDER flag may be added to allow the mob to leave their home area.


An item with this behavior will also follow mobs around, depending upon whether the INVENTORY flag is in the parameters or not. If it is, then the item will reappear in the inventory of the first person to pick it up whenever it is dispensed with. If the INVENTORY flag is not used, it will always appear in the same room as the first it comes across. The rate of reappearance is dictated by the min and max ticks. Items with this behavior can not be sold to shopkeepers.


A NAME may be given to limit the person followed to only that name. A mask may also be given to define what sort of targets are eligible to be followed by the mob or item.

===ItemGenerator===
Targets: Areas, Rooms, Containers, Mobs
Parameters: "min/max ticks" "% chance" "min/max items/dups" "enchanted=%""mobs" "locale mask"; "mask"
Examples: min=10 max=20 chance=75 minitems=1 maxitems=10 maxdups=0;-LEVELS +>10

minitems=10 maxitems=20 MOBS -ALL +CITY;-MATERIAL +IRON +BRONZE minitems=10 maxitems=20 enchanted=20;-NAME "+Short Sword"

Description: This behavior will generate a list of items from the standard common skills. It will also add random enchantments and curses to items a percentage of the time dictated by the enchanted parameter (default=10). Items are selected from the list on a pseudo-random basis, with the chance weighted in favor of the least valuable items in favor of the most valuable. This is to decrease the chances of a plethora of Spidersteel swords.


The parameters before the semicolon describe the rate and amount of items generated. The room or area will attempt to generate an item every (min) to (max) ticks, assuming the percent chance (chance) is made. It will then generate at least the minimum (minitems) number of items from the list, but never more than the maximum (maxitems) number of monsters. Duplicates are allowed unless (maxdups) is set to some value. Items taken away will be replaced by this behavior, even if they are looted. This behavior will generate items when on a room, in the inventory when on a mob, or in the shop when on a shopkeeper. If on an area, a random room in the area will be picked for the item. The TYPE of room in that area which will be selected for population may also be specified. -ALL to disallow all locales, followed by +AIR +CITY +JUNGLE (etc) to reallow certain locales. -CITY -UNDERWATER and others may be used to restrict certain locales. If no locale types are specified, then all rooms in an area will be populatable. Valid locates include: "STONE", "WOODEN", "CAVE", "MAGIC", "UNDERWATER", "AIR", "WATERSURFACE", "METAL", "CITY", "WOODS", "ROCKY", "PLAINS", "UNDERWATER", "AIR", "WATERSURFACE", "JUNGLE", "SWAMP", "DESERT", "HILLS", "MOUNTAINS". If the behavior is on a mob, or the MOBS flag is given in the parameters, then the item will be placed on a mob IF POSSIBLE (if the behavior is on an area, and a room with no mobs is randomly selected, it may not happen). Items placed on mobs will be automatically worn if possible.


The parameters after the semicolon are a mask to help select what kind of items are generated for the several rooms or whatever. For the mask flags, see AHELP ZAPPERMASK, where allowed is generated, and disallowed is not.

===MOBHunter===
Targets: MOBs
Parameters: min, max ticks, room radius, a percent chance, mask of mobs to hunt
Examples: min=600 max=1200 chance=99 radius=50 -RACE +Human

min=50 max=1200 chance=75 -NAME "+Evil Wizards"

Description: This behavior will cause the mob to seek out a victim within the RADIUS number of rooms from where he is. The mob will then hunt down and assassinate the victim. The mob will begin the hunt according to the frequency defined by the parameters. The MIN and MAX parms decide the minimum number of ticks to wait between hunts, and the CHANCE parm determines the chance the hunt will begin at that time. The RADIUS is the number of rooms away from the mobs current room in which a victim will be sought. The rest of the parameters are a mask to determine who would make a good victim.

See AHELP ZAPPERMASK, where allowed is hunted, and disallowed is ignored.

===MobileGoodGuardian===
Targets: MOBs
Parameters: min, max ticks, a percent chance, flags, locale parms
Examples: min=10 max=20 chance=75 wander -air -underwater
Description: This is a very active behavior. If the mob detects any evil mob attacking a good mob in the same room, or an adjacent room, it will attack the evil mob. If evil mobs are fighting, it will do nothing. If two good or neutral mobs are fighting, it will stop the fight. This mob is also mobile, which means the mob will move around the area. The wander flag is required if the mob is allowed to leave his or her area. The TYPE of room from which the mob is restricted may also be entered. -ALL to disallow all locales, followed by +AIR +CITY +JUNGLE (etc) to reallow certain locales. -CITY -UNDERWATER and others may be used to restrict certain locales.

Targets: MOBs
Parameters: min, max ticks, a percent chance
Examples: min=140 max=140 chance=100
Description: This behavior allows the mob with it to be updated in the CoffeeMud database according to the frequency defined by min, max ticks. This behavior is tricky to set up the first time. When you know you are going to want an updating mob in a room, you should first go to the room and create a GenMob with this behavior (no parameters needed). Wait a few seconds, and you will see the GenMob that you created has disappeared. Now you are free to add this behavior to one or more other mobs at your leisure. Don't forget to resave the room when you are done!

===MOBTeacher===
Targets: MOBs
Parameters: Char class name(s), ability name(s), expertise name(s),

percentages, nocommon flag, noedus flag, or empty to teach all.

Examples: mage evoker illusionist transmuter

100% mage 10% Thief_Steal NOCOMMON Spell_Sleep 5% Spell_Wish Spell_BurningHands

Description: This behavior makes the mob suitable to teach skills, spells, prayers, songs, or expertises as specified in the parameters. If the parameter is empty, the mob will be able to teach all abilities. If the parameter contains the name of a character class, the mob will only teach abilities of that class. *Any* class may always practice with a MOBTeacher, but the mob may only teach those abilities for the character class the parameters describe. The classes listed by mob teacher are NOT base classes. To have a teacher able to teach skills from an entire base class, all sub-classes must be listed.

Percentages may be included inside the parameters as well. The percentage will always apply only to the character classes or spells listed after the percentage, not before. Encountering another percentage entry will override the previous. A percentage will dictate the chance that a given spell will be known by the teacher, or the chance that a particular spell in a given character class will be known.

Two flags can also modify your list. The NOCOMMON flag prevents the teacher from teaching common skills, even if they would normally be on his list. The NOEXPS flag prevents the teacher from teaching expertises, even if he would normally qualify for them.

If this behavior has NO parameters whatsoever, the mob will teach all basic skills. Expertises will only be taught if the mob otherwise qualifies for them himself, and Character Class changes will only be taught if the mob is that class.

===MoneyChanger===
Targets: MOBs
Parameters: (CUT="NUM") (DEFAULT="NUM") ("CURRENCY"="NUM")

(CUT="NUM") (SPACEMAXCUT="NUM") (SPACEMAXDISTANCE="PCT")

Examples: cut=5

default=0 GOLD=5 INGITS=10 cut=5 spacemaxcut=90 spacemaxdistance=35

Description: Whenever a player gives the money changer coins, the money changer will give back to the player a bag containing an equivalent amount of money in the money changers native currency. The "cut" that the money changer takes, in general, can be defined with the CUT parameter, by making CUT equal to a percentage. If you wish, you can also define exchange rates for the several currencies in your system by setting each currency name equal to a percentage.


When dealing with intersteller currencies, there are two other parameters, which can be used to automatically calculate a scaled "cut" of the exchange based on how far away the exchanged currencies planet is from the money changers. To do this, you can add spacemaxcut to denote the percentage to take when the currency is from an unknown or maximum distance, and spacemaxdistance to denote a percentage of the entire galactic radius to use as a maximum.

===MovingRoom===
Targets: Rooms
Parameters: min=3 max=3 chance=100;"xmlsection";"ticks at stops";"ticks between stops"
Examples: min=3 max=3 chance=100;SUBWAY;3;10
Description: The above example would set the room's parameters to the ones listed in the SUBWAY section of the file resources/moving.xml. There is a subway example already there.

NOTE! : The follow conditions -must- be met before setting the room to this behaviour.

1.

The rooms that you want this room to open out to -must- already be defined before you make the XML section.

2.

The XML document -must- be writen before you set this behaviour.

3.

You -cannot- have the moving room override an exit, ie. if room A links south to Room B

you cannot have the mover link north to room A.

XML DOCUMENT NOTES:

You can use the following strings in the XML document to be translated on the fly

$disproom : if mover is at a stop this is the room it is opened to otherwise

. Example : this is the next room that this room will open too.

$inopendir : this is the direction the door on the inside (the mover) opens.

$outopendir: this is the direction the door on the outside (where the mover stoped) opens.

$traveldir : this is the current direction that the room is moving in.


(STOPS) here you would list the ROOMID of each room the mover will stop at example.

(STOP1)(first stop)(/STOP1)n

(NORMALDIRECTION) and (REVERSEDIRECTION)

-in these tags you define the parameters for the mover while is is going back and forth.

-normal is stop1 to stopwhatever and reverse is stopwhatever to stop1.

-TRAVELDIRECTION = the direction it is traveling from point a to point b.

-DOORSDIRECTION = the direction the doors open out of the mover.

--(INSIDE) and (OUTSIDE)

---in these tags you define what is echoed to the client in the mover and outside.

---ARRIVALINFO = what is echoed when the room gets to the stop

---DEPARTINFO = what is echoed when the room leaves the stop

(ROOMDESCRIPTIONS)

-here you define what is appended to the end of the room descriptions.

-(NORMALDIRECTION) and (REVERSEDIRECTION)

--(INSIDE) and (OUTSIDE)

---DOOROPENED = if the door is opened append this.

---DOORCLOSED = if the door is closed append this.


There are two examples in the XML document you can look at for further info.


Ideas for this would be, subways, busses, wagon trains (caravans) spaceships, stargates, everchanging paths in mazes, elevators, ect.

default

dog fido beastly fido_dog

cat kitten lion

pig boar

doll toy

papa_smurf smurf

monster

smurfette

healer cleric doctor


If the first character in the parameters is a plus-sign, then a semi-colon delimited list of chat data is expected, in the same format as is found in chat.dat.

===Nanny===
Targets: MOBs
Parameters: RATE="PRICE" NAME=""PLACE NAME"" WATCHES=""CODES"" (!~! "XML")
Examples: rate=2.5 name="The Stables" watches="mounts,wagons"
Description: Makes the mob a protector and watcher of mobs and items of various sorts, for money. The rate parameter describes the base gold value he charges for each thing dropped off, per hour. The name is a description of the type of place he runs. The watches parameter contains one or more comma-delimited words (no spaces!) describing the kinds of things he will charge people to watch and protect, and may include one or more of the following:

babies - baby items born from mud breeding

children - child mobs (after babies grow up)

mounts - rideable mobs of all sorts

cars - land-rideable items that aren't wagons

aircars - air-rideable items

wagons - rideable land items that are wagons

followers - mobs that aren't children, mounts, etc.

boats - rideable items of the sea


This behavior will automatically save the items and mobs in the room he is watching over, and prevent items from decay. Combat against himself or mobs under protection is forbidden, as is removing any mob or item that has not been paid for. The first mud-hour is free, and protection will not begin until the owner leaves.


NOTE - due to the way this behavior stores records, do not place this behavior on a mob that is cataloged in the CATALOG system.

Targets: MOBs, Items
Parameters: min, max ticks, % chance, rideok flag, diameter; room ids or directions
Examples: min=10 max=20 chance=75 rideok=true;Midgaard#3001;#3002;#3003;RESTART

min=10 max=20 chance=99 rideok=only;Midgaard#3001;#3002;#3003;RESTART min=10 max=20 chance=15;east;.;north;north;east min=10 max=20 chance=15 diameter=100;Midgaard#1;New Thalos#10;.;.;restart

Description: According to the timing and percent chance described by the parameters, the mob or item with this behavior will travel the path assigned in the parameters. Cardinal directions and room numbers are all valid entries, though the cardinal directions must always be valid from the objects current position to work. The 'RESTART' parameter may be placed in the path to force the object to start the path from the beginning. If no 'RESTART' parameter is given, the object will by default retrace their steps back to the beginning of the path. The '.' parameter (a period) in the path will direct the patroller to pause one step at that point. If any doors are encountered along the patrol route, they will be unlocked and opened by a mob. Items will ignore doors. If a route of room ids is given, the patroller will automatically "track" from their current position to the next room on their patrol list, even if it is not adjacent. The diameter parameter should be enlarged when it is possible for the patroller to become more that 20 rooms "off track".


By default, rideable mobs and items will stop patrolling when they are ridden. Setting rideok to true will make it so that they continue their patrol even when ridden, though they can still be driven by passengers. Setting rideok to only will keep the rideable on track, and prevent driving by passengers.


See Prop_StayAboard for a helpful support property for patrollers with riders.

MAXASSISTS describes the maximum number of mobs who will assist the citizen. CHANCE describes the PERCENT chance the mob has of screaming after the period. Whenever the mob screams the system will check RADIUS rooms deep around the mob for ANOTHER mob that matches the mask check after the first semicolon. In this example, mobs with the word "citiguard" in their name. If such a mob is found, and that mob has one of the "Mobile" behaviors, it will be moved one room closer to the screaming mob. An optional WANDER flag allows mobs from adjacent areas to be drawn in. When the guardian mob arrives to the same room as the screaming mob, it will join the screaming mob in defence. All of the semicolon-separated strings at the end of the parameter list will denote the random things which the screaming mob will yell out. Once a mob has come to the screamers defence, it will stop screaming. If a comma prefixes the scream message, it will be emoted instead.

See AHELP ZAPPERMASK, where allowed is assisted, and disallowed is ignored.

Targets: MOBs
Parameters: optional or additional chat data, or filenames ,or chat-mob-type
Examples: smurf

+(here there);9neither;5well, where?;1nowhere chat.dat=smurf mychat.dat=cityguard mychat.dat= +(speak

Description: An extension of the MudChat behavior, with a special feature for Quests. Allows the mobs to speak and respond to speech. The chat.dat file, from which speech behavior is derived, contains many "templates" for different speech behaviors. MudChat will attempt to choose the correct speech behavior for the mob based on the mobs name. This may be overridden by specifying a speech behavior in the parameters. This behavior extends the basic functionality of MudChat in the following ways:


1. If the first character in the parameters is a plus-sign, then a semi-colon delimited list of chat data is expected, in the same format as is found in chat.dat.


2. If format#1 is used, the trigger pattern may be followed by a double-colon, and then immediately by a variable string. This string will designate that the given pattern is only responded to for a given player ONCE. The string will also be added to a list of strings under the players name in any Quest object. This list will then be available through a Scriptable QVAR function.

===RandomItems===
Targets: Areas, Rooms, Containers, Mobs
Parameters: "min/max ticks" "% chance" "min/max items" "mobs" "locale mask"; "xml/filename"
Examples: min=10 max=20 chance=75 minitems=1 maxitems=10;myitems.cmare

minitems=10 maxitems=20 MOBS -ALL +CITY;stuff.cmare minitems=10 maxitems=20 ;<ITEMS><ITEM>..etc..

Description: This behavior will read a list of items from a CMARE file of items generated using the "EXPORT AREA ITEMS" or "EXPORT ROOM ITEMS" command. The path to this file should be the last parameter, following a semicolon. The path is considered relative to the CoffeeMud resources directory. The xml from such a file may also be pasted in as the last parameter instead.


The parameters before the semicolon describe the rate and amount of items generated. The room or area will attempt to generate an item every (min) to (max) ticks, assuming the percent chance (chance) is made. It will then generate at least the minimum (minitems) number of items from the list, but never more than the maximum (maxitems) number of monsters. Duplicates are allowed. Items taken away will be replaced by this behavior, even if they are looted. If the behavior is on a room, all items will be generated in that room. If on an area, a random room in the area will be picked for the item. The TYPE of room in that area which will be selected for population may also be specified. -ALL to disallow all locales, followed by +AIR +CITY +JUNGLE (etc) to reallow certain locales. -CITY -UNDERWATER and others may be used to restrict certain locales. If no locale types are specified, then all rooms in an area will be populatable. Valid locates include: "STONE", "WOODEN", "CAVE", "MAGIC", "UNDERWATER", "AIR", "WATERSURFACE", "METAL", "CITY", "WOODS", "ROCKY", "PLAINS", "UNDERWATER", "AIR", "WATERSURFACE", "JUNGLE", "SWAMP", "DESERT", "HILLS", "MOUNTAINS". If the behavior is on a mob, or the MOBS flag is given in the parameters, then the item will be placed on a mob IF POSSIBLE (if the behavior is on an area, and a room with no mobs is randomly selected, it may not happen). Items placed on mobs will be automatically worn if possible. If the behavior is on a shopkeeper, it will put the items up for sale.

minmonsters=10 maxmonsters=20 -ALL +CITY;criminals.cmare minmonsters=10 maxmonsters=20 ;<MOBS><MOB>..etc..

Description: This behavior will read a list of monsters from a CMARE file of mobs generated using the "EXPORT AREA MOBS" or "EXPORT ROOM MOBS" command. The path to this file should be the last parameter, following a semicolon. The path is considered relative to the CoffeeMud resources directory. The xml from such a file may also be pasted in as the last parameter instead.


The parameters before the semicolon describe the rate and amount of monsters generated. The room or area will attempt to generate a monster every (min) to (max) ticks, assuming the percent chance (chance) is made. It will then generate at least the minimum (minmonsters) number of monsters from the list, but never more than the maximum (maxmonsters) number of monsters. Duplicates are allowed. Monsters who die will be replaced by this behavior, even if they wander out of the room or area. If the behavior is on a room, all monsters will be generated in that room. If on an area, a random room in the area will be picked for the monster. The TYPE of room in that area which will be selected for population may also be specified. -ALL to disallow all locales, followed by +AIR +CITY +JUNGLE (etc) to reallow certain locales. -CITY -UNDERWATER and others may be used to restrict certain locales. If no locale types are specified, then all rooms in an area will be populatable. By default, non-flying mobs will never be generated in air rooms, nor will non-swimming mobs be generated underwater.

===RandomQuests===
Targets: Areas, Mobs
Parameters: (MIN="TICKS") (MAX="TICKS") (CHANCE="0-100") ("var=value" ...)
Examples: minquests=3 maxquests=5 template=normal_capture1
Description: This behavior will generate a random quest inside a host area, or generate a random quest on behalf of the host mob. The arguments are all optional, and are numerous:

MIN, MAX, and CHANCE determine how frequently an attempt will be made to generate a quest. Be generous with this, as quest generation is a cpu-intensive process. Default is 10-20 ticks.

MINQUESTS, MAXQUESTS determine how many quests will be generated at one time. If any existing quests ellapse, then new ones will be generated. Default is 1-3 quests. If multiple quests are offered by the same mob, then, by default, the player must complete each one in order.

PATH is used to specify the xml document to read the random quest data from. Default is randareas/example.xml.

TAGID is the tag of the QUEST object inside the PATH document to generate. Default is "all_quests".

EXPIRE is the amount of time a quest will run for before expiring forever. Expiration occurs even if a quest is accepted moments before. The default is "3 hours".

MAXATTEMPTS is the number of attempts that will be made to generate a particular quest. This is necessary because not all areas, people, or circumstances will support evey quest type. The default is 3.


The following are not aspects of this behavior, but are variables passed on to the percolator who generates the quests, and are only meaningful because of their definitions in /resources/quests/random/*.xml.

TEMPLATE is the name of the quest template to use. Default is normal.

AVOIDSCANS can be set to YES to avoid quest templates that scan an entire area.

AREA_NAME can override the name of the areas where the announcer is found.

SOURCE_NAME can override the name of the quest announcer.

TARGETAREA_NAME can override the name of the area where the quest occurs.

MULTIAREA can be set to YES to allow the quest to occur other than the source area.

TARGETNAME is quest-type specific, but can mean the name of a quest target mob or item.

NUM_TARGETS is quest-type specific, but can mean the number of items/mobs to target.

AGGRESSION is quest-type specific, but can be set to YES or NO.

XP_AMOUNT_AWARDED is the amount of xp to award for completing a quest.

GOLD_AMOUNT_AWARDED is the amount of money to award for completing a quest.

QUEST_POINT_AWARDED can be set to YES or NO.

QUEST_MULTIPLE can be set to YES, NO, or PREV

ANNOUNCECHANNEL can be anything from SAY, LOCAL, QUESTCHAT, etc.

TARGET_MIN_AREALEVEL AND TARGET_MAX_AREALEVEL to set a range for randomly picked target areas

min=10 max=20 chance=25 ROOMS="YES" ITEMS="NO" -ALL +CityStreet

Description: This behavior will generate traps in a room or area.

Frequency Parameters:

The frequency and chance that the traps will be generated is determined by the min, max, and chance parameters.


Number of traps parameters:

The number of traps generated is determined by mintraps and maxtraps.


Types of items trapped parameters:

You may also dictate the types of things which can be trapped. By default, only closed, locked doors will get trapped. To allow other things to be trapped, other parameters must be included.

The ROOMS parameter may be made equal to YES to allow trapping of rooms, or NO to not allow this.

The EXITS parameter may be made equal to DOORS to allow trapping of all doors, LOCKED to allow only trapping of locked doors, or NO to not allow exits to be trapped at all.

The ITEMS parameter may be equal to YES to allow trapping of any items, CONT to allow trapping only of containers, LID to trap only the containers with lids, LOCK to trap only containers with locks, or NO to never trap items.


The locale parameters:

The TYPE of room in that area which will be checked for trappable things may also be specified. Use -ALL to disallow all locales, followed by +AIR +CITY +JUNGLE (etc) to reallow certain locales. -CITY -UNDERWATER and others may be used to restrict certain locales. If no locale types are specified, then all rooms in an area will be eligible.

===ResetWhole===
Targets: Rooms, Areas
Parameters: # of ticks of inactivity before reset

(TICKS="INACTIVITY TICKS")/(RLHOUR="HOUR")/(MUDHOUR="HOUR")

Examples: 4000
Description: This behavior provides an alternative means of resetting your rooms and areas. The system will total reset a room (mobs and items) which has not been visited by a player in the given amount of ticks. Remember that a tick is about 4 seconds. You can alternatively specify a real life hour (0-23) or mud hour of the day with the RLHOUR or MUDHOUR parameters. An Area with this behavior will skip over any rooms which also have this behavior, allowing you to have different total reset times for certain rooms. Of course, this behavior does not override the existing REJUV system for mobs and items, so if you would like to use the ResetWhole system exclusively, you should set the rejuv rate on all the mobs and items in your game to 0, which disables their internal rejuvenation.

CORN WHEAT RICE ROCKY MOUNTAINS PLAINS

Description: This class allows one to override the normal resources generated by rooms for many common skills. This skill will randomly select from the list enumerated in the parameters instead of the normal list. If this behavior is added to an area, you can add to the parameters a list of room types to apply the new resources to. Room types include: STONE, WOODEN, CAVE, MAGIC, UNDERWATER, AIR, WATERSURFACE, METAL, CITY, WOODS, ROCKY, PLAINS, UNDERWATER", AIR, WATERSURFACE, JUNGLE, SWAMP, DESERT, HILLS, MOUNTAINS


When changing the parameters of an existing ResourceOverride on an area, be sure to use RESET AREA to change back any rooms previously affected.

Examples: tickdelay=10 peacemover=true areaonly=false
Description: This behavior will turn a mob into a helpful member of the crew of a large boardable sailing ship. With no arguments, this behavior will make the mob stand idle until their ship is in combat, at which point they will load and aim weapons they encounter. By default, they act more frequently based on their level from 1-30.


If a mob has the Shipwright behavior, they will automatically mend the ship when not in combat, or when the ship is badly hurt during combat. If a mob has Grapples and is Mobile, they will throw grapples and board enemy ships when appropriate.


Parameters:

TICKDELAY - the number of ticks between actions, whether in combat or no

PEACEMOVER - will sail the ship around at random when not in combat

AREAONLY - whether the ship stays in-area when sailing around

FIGHTMOVER - will sail the ship around at (somewhat) random during combat

WIMPY - if FIGHTMOVER is true, will make the ship run away when losing

FIGHTTECH - will load and aim weapons during combat

AGGRO - will target other ships they encounter and start fights

AGGROMOBS - if AGGRO is true, this will also start fights with mob-only ships

AGGROLEVELCHECK - if AGGRO, this will only fight with near-level enemy ships

AGGROMASK - if AGGRO, a zappermask to filter enemies. See help ZAPPERMASK.

DEFENDER - if DEFENDER is true, the mob will seek the deck to defend against boarders

BOARDER - if BOARDER is true, this mob will seek the enemy ship to attack enemy crew

Description: According to the timing and percent chance described by the parameters, the mob with this behavior will attempt to pick up and take away random objects in the same room as the mob. Scavengers will not do their work when a PC is in the room, however. If they get "filled up" on items, they will destroy them, unless the trash flag is present. If it is set to NO, they will do nothing. If it is set to a roomid, the mob will track to that room and put the things in any ungettable container therein, or on the ground if that is not an option. An optional semicolon at the end of the arguments may be followed by a zapper mask to limit the types of items the scavenger will pick up. See AHELP ZAPPERMASK.

      • NOTE Phrases for MASK_PROG, GIVE_PROG, GET_PROG, PUT_PROG, REMOVE_PROG, WEAR_PROG, BUY_PROG, SELL_PROG, and SPEECH_PROG must group words and phrases together using the "'" character, for instance 'a phrase' or 'multiple words'. The characteris unnecessary when put around single words 'word'.


      • NOTE If Scriptable is placed on an Item, triggers such as GET_PROG, DROP_PROG, WEAR_PROG, and REMOVE_PROG will only trigger when the scripted item is involved.


      • NOTE MASK_PROG and ACT_PROG will check commands as they appear to the mob with this behavior. Consider perspective, vision, and word tense in light of this fact when wording your masks. For instance, the purchase of a sword in a dark shop may be seen as 'Someone buys something from someone' instead of 'Bob buys a sword from Joe'.

===TaxCollector===
Targets: MOBs
Parameters: (WAIT="TIME") (GRACE="TIME")
Examples: WAIT=60000 GRACE=600000
Description: This behavior makes the mob a very annoying and somewhat dangerous collector of money from both players and mobs. The TaxCollector will, by default, demand 10% of any money by a random person it comes across in the form of a "citizens tax". That person has (WAIT) milliseconds to give over the money before the tax collector either charges them with tax evasion, or attacks. If the taxcollector is paid (mobs will always pay), then the person has (GRACE) amount of time before money is demanded again. The TaxCollector will never demand money from a member of its own clan, if it has one. Also, in areas with law, the tax collector will charge the rate defined as the Citizens Tax instead of the flat 10%, as well as charging for any back property taxes if applicable.

Midgaard#3001=1.5; Smurfville=2.0; 70 ; AREAONLY=true Midgaard#3032; 100 ; INDOOROK=false; MAXRANGE=100

Description: This behavior makes the mob a carrier of players to places. The mob will charge for his services if you specify a price in the parameters, or he will do it for free if you don't, or if the last price specified was 0. The parameters can include a comma delimited set of room IDs, area names, or even short title descriptions for quickly entering rooms within short range of the mob.


The parameters may also include certain other variables as part of the parameter list. These include AREAONLY = true or false, to specify whether the taxi knows anything about places outside his area. MAXRANGE=number for the maximum number of rooms away from the taxi that is known. GREETING=message will give a special taxi greeting message for all players who enter the room its in. ENTERMSG will give a message to players after they mount the taxi. TALKERNAME=name will change the apparent name of the speaker, allowing you to turn a mounted mob into a "driver" if you wish. PERROOM=number will set a per-room price for the distance from the current room to the one sought. INDOOROK=true will allow the taxi to traverse indoor rooms if convenient. NOWATER=true to prevent trails over water. NOAIR=true, to prevent trails through the air. NOLOCKS=true to prevent trails through locked doors. NOHOMES=true to prevent trails through private homes. NOCLIMB to prevent trails through climbable exits. NOCRAWL to prevent trails through crawlable exits.

===Thiefness===
Targets: MOBs
Parameters: (SUBCLASS NAME) (PROFICIENT) (NOSTATS) (NOCOMBATSTAT)

(OFFENSIVE,DEFENSIVE,MIXEDOFFENSIVE,MIXEDDEFENSIVE) (MINTICKS="NUM" MAXTICKS="NUM" CHANCE="NUM")

Examples: Thief

Assassin MIXEDOFFENSIVE

Description: An extension of CombatAbilities, this behavior makes the mob a Thief by class, and gives the mob thief skills appropriate to its level. After this behavior has triggered, it will often require a RESET for any level changes to the mob to take over. The Thiefness behavior also includes many non-combat abilities, including sneaking and hiding, backstabbing, picking pockets, and even stealing at high levels!

Use the proficient flag to make all skills at 100% instead of level-based. Use the offensive/.../mixeddefensive flags to influence skill choices. This behavior should not be used WITH any of the other CombatAbilities behaviors, such as Fighterness, Thiefness, Mageness, Clericness, Druidness, or CombatAbilities. It should be used alone on a mob.

Also, be aware that this behavior will modify the mobs stats to better reflect the class, so any additions or removals of this behavior should be accompanied by a room reset after saving, and manually checking to make sure the combat stats are as desired.
