@nudge command
« on: December 28, 2012, 10:51:59 AM »
I'd like to suggest a @nudge command that makes nearby neutral or friendly NPCs wander a little from their current location.

To try to prevent those times when some NPC man/dog/oxen seems to be stuck on a transition/in a doorway/whatever and basically blocking things.

No idea how difficult this would be to do really; not really thought of how it could be potentially abused but likely it could be coded in a manner to prevent exploiting.
“Moral wounds have this peculiarity - they may be hidden, but they never close; always painful, always ready to bleed when touched, they remain fresh and open in the heart.”
― Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo

I think such a command would indeed be helpful. :thumbup:

currently I run:
-: Curse of the Wolf :-
-: The Curse of von Zeklos :-

Great idea actually, it'd be like triggering the "wander" emote / function?
Need to be careful to ensure it only works on friendly NPCs though, not hostile. Or it has the potential to be spammed and abused to keep monsters from attacked or interrupting casts, etc.

Don't mince words Juice, tell us how you really feel  :P

Oh and this is a most excellent idea, I fully endorse its implantation ;)

This would also help people who get stuck in the temple in Har'Akir when the six NPCs clog the door and force you into the corner.
What does the scanner see? Into the head? Down into the heart? Does it see into me, into us? Clearly or darkly? I hope it sees clearly, because I can't any longer see into myself. I see only murk. I hope for everyone's sake the scanners do better.
