Altar

Description

When a player puts a defined number of certain items on the altar, then either a spell is cast (on the player) or a connection is triggered. If the latter is the case, the altar works only once. Either way, the sacrificed item disappears.

Attributes

Attribute Field Description
align obj::align X align of the object on the map.
alpha obj::alpha Alpha value of the object.
anim speed obj::anim_speed How fast to play this animation.
animation obj::animation_id The animation-name defines what animation is displayed for this object in-game. Note that a set animation will overrule the face.
block view FLAG_BLOCKSVIEW If an item is set to block view, players (and monsters) cannot see beyond it unless they cross it or manage to stand on top of it.
cast to direction obj::last_sp The spell will be cast in this direction. Note, that if the altar should cast a healing spell on the player, this must be direction 0. For other spells like firestorm, it should be set a valid point of the compass direction.
connection connection value If a connection value is set, the altar will trigger all objects with the same value when activated. This will only work once.
connection flag1 obj::last_eat Depending on the target object, setting this flag or not can have different effects. See the object you are connecting to this.
cursed FLAG_CURSED The item is cursed. This object can't be removed when wielded or worn (without uncursing it). Remove curse will remove this flag.
damned FLAG_DAMNED Stronger form of curse. Item can't be removed when wielded or worn. Remove damnation will remove this flag.
direction obj::direction The object's direction.
direction based drawing obj::draw_direction If enabled, the object will be shown depending on its direction and player's position. Usually used by wall decoration so the decoration doesn't appear from both sides of the wall.
drop amount liv::food

The drop amount specifies the amount of items (specified in <match item name>) that must be dropped to activate the altar.

If <match item name> is set to "money", then the value of the sacrificed money must be equal to <drop amount> (ie, if food = 200, then 200 silver, 20 gold, or 4 platinum will all work.)

glow radius obj::glow_radius If <glow radius> is set to a value greater than zero, the object appears lit up on dark maps. <glow radius> can be a value between 0 and 4, the higher, the more light does the object emit.
height obj::z Adjusts Y position of the object as it appears on the map.
identified FLAG_IDENTIFIED If an item is identified, the player has full knowledge about it.
ignore connection push obj::connect_no_push If set, connection triggers that were done because something (such as a button being pressed) was pushed will be ignored.
ignore connection release obj::connect_no_release If set, connection triggers that were done because something (such as a button being unpressed) was released will be ignored.
image obj::face The image name defines what image is displayed for this object in-game.
inv. system object FLAG_SYS_OBJECT

Marks an object as system object. System objects are ALWAYS invisible and hidden from the players.

System objects are put in layer 0.

invisible FLAG_IS_INVISIBLE Generally makes the object invisible. Invisible objects will be shown if the player has "see invisible" (from an item). To hide objects totally from detection, use "sys_object".
is animated FLAG_ANIMATE

If set, the object is animated and animation is used.

Note: Some special objects will use an animation NOT as animation but as frame list. Examples are buttons (which frames are changed by the object status of the button). IS_TURNABLE will enable direction turning for some object types. These flags are all system related. Be VERY careful when changing them.

is turnable FLAG_IS_TURNABLE System flag. Object can be turned into directions.
layer obj::layer This is the map layer the object will put in. The selected layer will affect where and how this object is shown on client side. Layer 0 is reserved for sys_object type objects and will NEVER be shown on client side. Layer 1 is for floor objects and layer 2 for floor masks. Layer 3 and 4 are for items on the ground. Layer 5 is for walls, layer 6 is reserved for players and layer 7 is for spell effects and high flying/visible objects like arrows.
magical FLAG_IS_MAGICAL If set, this object counts as "magical". Detect magic or identify will show this flag and the player will see a small blue M in the client's inventory part.
match item name obj::slaying This string specifies the item that must be put on the altar to activate it. It can either be the name of an archetype, or directly the name of an object. Yet, titles are not recognized by altars. Remember to put a note somewhere, telling the player what he is expected to drop on the altar. Often this is put in the altar's name: E.g. "drop 100 platinums".
material obj::material_real

The material defines the exact material of which the object consists. It is much more specific than <material class>, however only one material can be selected, not multiple.

<material> is not required to be set, it can be left 'undefined'.

material class obj::material This bitmask-value informs the player of which basic material(s) the object consists. Material class does also affect how likely the object can be destroyed by hazardous spell-effects, like firestorm.
message obj::msg This text will be displayed to the player in the exact moment when the altar is activated.
name obj::name This is the name of the object, displayed to the player.
no prayers FLAG_NO_CLERIC If enabled, it is impossible for players to use prayers on that spot.
no spells FLAG_NO_MAGIC If enabled, it is impossible for players to use spells on that spot.
no teleport FLAG_NO_TELEPORT Marks an object as no teleport object. A no teleport object can't be teleported by teleporter except if the object is inside the inventory of another object which can be teleported.
non-pickable FLAG_NO_PICK If set, the object cannot be picked up (neither by players nor monsters).
number obj::nrof This value determines the number of objects in one stack (for example: 100 goldcoins => "number = 100"). You should set this at least to one, for any pickable object - otherwise it won't be mergeable into a stack.
one drop FLAG_ONE_DROP If this flag is set for an item inside monster's quest_container with the quest being quest item type, the player will only be able to get this item once.
permanent cursed FLAG_PERM_CURSED The item is permanently cursed. If this flag is set, applying or unapplying it will set "cursed 1" again. This flag can't be removed by remove curse.
permanent damned FLAG_PERM_DAMNED The item is permanently damned. If this flag is set, applying or unapplying it will set "damned 1" again. This flag can't be removed by remove damnation.
player only FLAG_PLAYER_ONLY If set, only players can enter the tile the object with this flag is on.
reflect missiles FLAG_REFL_MISSILE Object will reflect missiles.
reflect spells FLAG_REFL_SPELL Object will reflect spells.
spell liv::sp When activated, the selected <spell> will be cast (once, on the player). This should work for any given spell. The altar will work infinitely in this way. Don't set both <spell> and <connection> for one altar.
spell level obj::level Set the power level of the spell.
stackable FLAG_CAN_STACK

If set, the item can be stacked. Careful, don't use on rings or other applyable items, it will lead to side effects.

Missiles are designed to be used as stacks for example.

start speed obj::speed_left

When an active object (with 'speed' being non-zero) is put on a map, this value is used as counter. Every 'tick', 'speed' (if negative, value is turned positive before) is added to this value - if it is bigger than 0 the object 'will do something' and this counter is decreased with -1.0.

By default a normal object will be put on the map with start speed 0. It 'will do something' with the next coming 'tick'. Setting this value to -1.0 will put it on map but wait one full 'lifetime' round until it does something.

A 'fire object' should be put on map with start speed 0 - it should try to burn something in the moment it comes in the game. A bomb for example should be put with speed -1.0 on the map - it will stay then on map until the bomb becomes active - it explodes.

The 'lifetime' round is determinated by speed. A speed of 1.0 will give a 'lifetime' round of 1 tick - a speed of 0.01 100 ticks.

Special case: A negative speed value will add to start speed a random value between 0.0 to 0.9 . So, a speed of -0.1 with a start speed of -1.0 will result in speed 0.1 and start speed between -1.0 and -0.1. This is useful to let a row of same objects act in different tick ranges.

sub type obj::sub_type1

This important value is used to define "sub types" for objects of the same object type. Examples are weapons, which are all from type WEAPON but can be different sub types like slash, cleave, two-handed, polearms and so on. This value goes to the client too.

Warning: Not all objects have a sub type and changing it without care can corrupt server AND/OR the clients. Normally this is not a subject to change outside arch definition.

title obj::title This is the object's title. Once an object is identified the title is attached to the name. Typical titles are "of Yordan", "of xray vision" etc.
unpaid FLAG_UNPAID An <unpaid> item cannot be used unless the player carried it over a shop mat, paying the demanded price. Setting this flag makes sense only for items inside shops.
value obj::value Change an object's value.
weight obj::weight This value defines the object's weight in gram (1000g is 1kg). Objects with zero weight are not pickable for players. Still, set the "non-pickable" flag for explicitly non-pickable objects.
zoom obj::zoom How much to zoom the object on the map.
