Hunt echos

Post by RedRaven » Thu Mar 17, 2005 8:46 pm

You couldn't find a path to Player from here.
This is currently the echo if you try to hunt a player not in your area.

Player has magically covered his tracks.
And the one if player has a no_hunt cloak or other nonhuntable abilitiy.

the no_hunt takes precedence and this is good. ie, u cant use it to determine if hunted is in same area or not. I like this.

But what I suggest is that you should get the same msg in both cases. Because if for some reason the player has his no_hunt off then u can use this to determine that. Because u will either A get a direction if in area or B get the couldnt find a path msg. This would be regardless of how far away the player is. They should have to actually be in the area to determine if the ability is on or not.
I would suggest something for both cases along the lines of simply.

No Path could be found to Player.

This wether the player is out of area with or without cloak or in area and wearing cloak.

Just my 2 silver pieces worth.

Just so you know..

If you are wearing cloak, you get the Player has magically covered his tracks.

I was in Pyramid of Unconsciousness and I tried to hunt you and got this message. I also got the same message from 1 room west of where you were at in poa.

If you're not wearing the cloak, you get the You couldn't find a path to Player from here. You get that message if you're not within a certain number of rooms to a player, or there is no direct path to them.

There is nothing wrong with the echos. If this is because I happened to catch you last night in PoA, it was because a little birdy told me you were in 4th floor, so i went to every room *via my trusty map of course* and looked for you. :P

Red does have a pretty decent point though... Whether he's doing it to cover his own ass or not :P
Inconceivable!

The message for the cloak should be the same as the message for the person being too far away. I agree with that.

In either case, You couldn't find a path to PERSON from here.
