- Added map caching supporting all maps. Due to this, sectors are no longer
  same in the same spot in different maps, allowing local settings for maps.
- Added ADDCIRCLE=x[,y] to add a circle to a character's spellbook. If y is on,
  includes all lower spell circles as well.
- File locking method optimised. It should improve the multithreading a bit.
- Changed [SECTOR x,y] in world saves to x,y,0,map to allow local settings for
  sectors in different maps. Old format will default to map 0.
- Since sectors are no longer shared witheen different maps, sectors on maps,
  unsupported by server (having no corresponding .mul files) do not get ticks.
- Fixed cause to duplicate saved items in static saves in several occasions.
- Added BADSPAWN command to jump to the first bad spawn found in the world. You
  should add this to some of the [PLEVEL records. It also saves the UID into
  ACT in case you unable to see it due to some obstacles.
- Removed useless PRIVHIDE (privshow 0/1 is enough for this).

10-12-04, Vjaka
- Fixed some defmessages misprint making unable to override them.
- Fixed @Kill to trigger even if the killer is not an agressor in the fight.
- Changed MAPPLANE->MAP, LOCALLIGHT->LIGHT (.56a supported both variants, but
  saved the second). Launch and save in .56a will autoconvert this in saves.
- Now any items with ATTR_STATIC are saved to spherestatics.scp, not only those
  who has this flag being the only set.
- Fixed carriage return in accounts unused message.

11-12-04, Furio
- Fixed: bugs with FORCONT* loops.
- Fixed: bug with coloured text in comm crystal.
- Added: SKILLGAIN function to call internal sphere skillgain function. Args are
  skill to gain and difficulty (0 to 100).
- Added: REPORTEDCLIVER property for clients. It'll contain the version that
  the client is. (this is easy fakeable by 3rd party programs, but still is

13-12-04, Vjaka
- Fixed resolving functions executing on containers, if the name started from
  rescount,restest,fcount or count.
- Fixed isneartype not working if calling under points (like from TARGP).

17-12-04, Vjaka
- Account delete information now contains account name.
- Added NPC keyword GOTO x,y,z,map to execute sphere default movements there.
- Redone pathfinding to support separate thread execution, so it now utilizes
  extra thread if OF_Multithreaded is set.
- Advanced AI now includes food search on hunger to eat and gather meal around.
  It is executed in separate thread with pathfinding if configured so.

21-12-04, Vjaka
- Changed sector allocations, now allocates only those who are needed by the
  server depending on the *.mul files found. Thus, on bare t2a install no space
  for other maps will be allocated (saves several Mbytes).
- Random selection {x y} now supports format {x,y} also. Should help using it
  with DAM/AR fields of items.
- Added EXP field to characters. No internal support for it yet. But you can
  use it in scripts already.
- Empty accounts file is created on-fly if not found. Useful for unpack-n-run.
- Fixed bug with TOTALCONNECTTIME being increased by doubled value, and now is
  made more accurate.
- Optimized the UID allocation routine, trying to disallow creating holes in
  objects allocation. This should improve memory neccessaty increase for large
  or long-lasting servers. Howewer, this does not defrag the current save, only
  newly generated UIDs will be optimized - no existant UIDs will be altered.
  Garbage Collection should be enabled for this optimization to work.
- Expanded account information in ACCOUNT NAME command by logged char name.

03-01-05, Vjaka
- Added  as a shortcut to . Can take either
  one, two or no arguments like , , . If no arguments given,
  R1000 is assumed.
- You can now disable broadcast messages (like errors, connects, etc) from the
  server log to be sent to your account logged via telnet. You can toggle this
  behavior per account via PRIV field of the account (mask 0400). So, only
  responces to your commands and some very-basic messages (like world save)
  will be sent in this case.

08-01-05, Vjaka
- Added support for virtual maps. Now map numbers 0..255 are supported by the
- Map dimensions are now customizable in INI-file using by the following cmd:
  Here x - the map number for ingame useage (4rd coordinate of the coordinate).
  max_x - maximal X coordinate of the map (should be multiply of 8).
  max_y - maximal Y coordinate of the map (should be multiply of 8).
  sector_size - the sector size (you can play with this if you experience lags
    decreasing this value (should be multiply of 8 and both max_x and max_y).
  real_map_numer - number used by map files (like: 0 for map0, statics0).
  You can also change some attribute of the current map not redefining all
  values, skipping the ones you wish to be as default putting 0 instead (for
  real map number -1). For example, decreasing sector size for map 0 to 16
  from default value of 64 will look in INI file thus: "MAP0=0,0,16,-1".
  Please note, that no changes are applied when server is already started.
- Default map numbering has been changed (you can ovverride it easily by MAPx
  setting in sphere.ini). Now 0 = map0, 1 = map0, 2 = map2, 3 = map3, 4 = map4.

10-01-05, Furio
- Added: tooltip %d command for gumps (works in SE clients).
- Added: sphere_map*.scp/sphere_map_points*.scp for new maps and fixed the
  default one.
- Updated: gray proto with new packets.
- Updated: client support to 4.0.7 family.
- Updated: fix in default script pack.

13-01-05, Furio
- Modified SERV.MAP(x,y) to accept a 3rd parameter, the map. If omitted is
  defaulted to 0.
- Added SECTOR access to read-only properties from a point. Example:
  SERV.MAP(100,100,1).SECTOR.ITEMCOUNT will give you the itemcount of the
  sector that contains the point 100,100 on map 1.
- Added REGION access to read-only properties from a point. (works like
  SECTOR one)
- Fixed: gumppic to show hue when used. (Hue usable only for client >= 3)

15-01-05, Vjaka
- Changed the way the server saves allowing more information about the cause of
  some exception (which is now not fatal for the save).

17-01-05, Vjaka
- Added LEVEL field to char as the future part of the experience system.
- Added ExperienceSystem, ExperienceMode, LevelSystem, LevelMode, LevelNextAt
  fields to the .INI file as a future part of the experience system. Read the
  default sphere.ini for more description over these fields.
- PRIV flags are now auto-clearing bits corresponding to not used priv. This is
  a solution for a possible incompatibility when the previosely disabled bit
  will be reused with other functionality on same world saves.
- Fixed: LAYER_EXTRA is now used ONLY to place the items bought by the vendor.
- Items sold to vendors are auto-deleted exactly upon the sell operation. The
  only case they are saved, if they are sold to player vendors.
- Amount of items in sell packet is now limited to the container size.
- Fixed one more sell/buy exploit.

17-01-05, Furio
- Fixed: party system.
- Fixed: group disappeared from gumps.
- Added: scriptable components for the party. Still work in progress.
  With .PARTY refer to the current party of the char.
  	   .PARTY.MEMBER.x refer to any member of the party.
       .PARTY.MASTER refer to the master of the party.
  PARTY.MEMBERS give the count of members
  PARTY.MEMBER.x has also ISMASTER and ISLOOTABLE properties.
  PARTY.ADDMEMBER[FORCED] you can add a meber by script (forced  version works
       without the normal /accept behaviour)
  PARTY.DISBAND disband the current party
  PARTY.REMOVEMEMBER @ remove the Nth member
  PARTY.REMOVEMEMBER  remove a member in the party with the UID given
       (if is the master the party is disbanded)
  PARTY.SYSMESSAGE @ TEXT send a party sysmessage to the Nth member
  PARTY.SYSMESSAGE  TEXT send a party sysmessage to a member in the party
       with the UID given
  PARTY.SYSMESSAGE TEXT send a sysmessage to the party
  PARTY.MESSAGE @ TEXT send a message from the Mth member to the party
  PARTY.MESSAGE @, TEXT send a message from the Mth member to the Nth
  PARTY.MESSAGE  TEXT send a message from the  to the party
  PARTY.MESSAGE , TEXT send a message from  member to 
- Added: TAG/TAG0 for party.

24-01-05, Vjaka

- Write deleted accounts out to log file

25-01-05, Vjaka
- Fixed vendor selling in case of one item being sold.
- Ensure double character removal from view in "remove 1" case (for allshow).

26-01-05, Vjaka
- Fixed registry settings overriding MULFILES setting in some cases in win32.
- Fixed the way spells are checked whatever they are in a spellbook. New type
  of spellbook (186) has been added for script purposes with internal support.
  Now the spellbooks (if not default one) can be configured to specify which
  number of the lowest spell it contains (stored in MOREZ).
- Fixed casting speel with two or more similar spell books when it does not
  exist in one of these books.
- Removed limitation to 1 byte (255) for MOREZ of spellbooks. Now it can hold
  2 bytes (65535). Please note, that setting MOREZ via MOREP is incorrect here.

28-01-05, Vjaka
- Fixed bug caused with layer_extra removal from buy menu in older clients.
- Added support for packets filterings. Please note, that you should understand
  what are you doing. You can install your handler of a packet X specifying
  PACKETx=functionname. This function will be called when the packet is going
  to be processed by the server. It has the following arguments set:
  ARGN1 = packet number (to allow using one function for different packets)
  ARGS = source client ip address
  LOCAL.0-LOCAL.9 - first 10 bytes of the packet for parsing contents
  If you do return 1 in this function, the packet will NOT be processed.
- Some exceptions debug messaging speed optimised.

29-01-05, Vjaka
- Added argument for RECRUIT on guildstone. If set 1, the member recruited will
  become a fully qualifyed member of a guild with abbriviation shown on.

30-01-05, Furio
- Fixed: compatibility problems on Linux.
- Freeze for 0.56b Test1.

- Argument switches of target[f][g][w] functions can be given in any order.
- Fixed removing events on other events execution that leaded skipping others.
- Memory usage is lowered (pre-storage optimized for more accurate values),
  approx 30-40% less memory will be used (depending on load structure).

04-02-05, Vjaka
- Logout now quits from chat removing problems with inactive zombies left.
- Characters with Statf_STONE cannot logout (actualy, have 1 hour logout timer).
- You can now access account properties using SERV.ACCOUNT.x. reference where x
  is the numerical index of the account (0..SERV.ACCOUNTS) [read-only]
- Fixed extra step made on sector borders.
- Fixed "return"/"return 2" in chardef triggers stopping others from launching.

04-02-05, Furio
- Added support for 4.0.8 clients.
- Fixed some arguments parsing in party functions

05-02-05, Vjaka
- Optimized time profiling on ticking objects.

07-02-05, Vjaka
- Problem with items left with switching virtual maps with one physical should
  be solved.
- Added simple mySQL support. New settings MySqlHost, MySqlUser, MySqlPassword,
  MySqlDatabase will be used to connect to the DB in case if MYSQL is set to 1.
  You will need extra .dll/.so to download for sphere installation. They will
  join the packages.

08-02-05, Vjaka
- Fixed several map support bugs with incorrect sector counting (should improve
  support of a high map numbers).

11-02-05, Vjaka
- Fixed bug causing incorrect function name lookup in several cases with some
  special chars like underline (_).
- Added debug flags 0200 and 0400 to debug experience and level changes from
  server console (if enabled).
- Experience system integrated. Few addons about defaults to config comments:
  a) experience bonus for crafting counted as a value/100.
  b) default experience set on create is str+dex/2+int.
  c) manual setting experience will alter level if configured so.
  d) dying decreases experience by 10%
  e) killing enemy will give experience depending on exp and level of target.

12-02-05, Vjaka
- Added 2 more EXP settings to config: ExperienceKoefPVP and ExperienceKoefPVM,
  controlling percents of gaining experience in PvP and PvM combat.
- Added triggers @ExpChange and @ExpLevelChange, where ARGN1 (writeable) is the
  change is going to happen. Returning 1 cancels the change.

12-02-05, Furio
- Fixed: another buffer overrun exploit in log system. Thx to Radiant for
  reporting it.
- Added: SUPPRESSCAPITALS (default 0) to enable/disable Vjaka system to avoid
  long text written only in capital letters.

14-02-05, Vjaka
- OF_Advanced_AI is now obsolete. Currently it is controlled by NPCAI setting
  in config file.
- Added MaxLoopTimes value to config (default 10000) to limit a number of
  iterations the while/for cycle could have to remove possible deadlocks making
  server to stop responding (better use this instead of main loop restart).
- Added MOVERATE to CHARDEFs. It is the percent modifier of the speed of the
  NPC - the higher it is, the slower will the NPC be. Default is 100.
- Now double clicking on the log window in windows build will bring up an
  editor with corresponded file (if any specifyed in the same line) opened.

15-02-05, Vjaka
- Fixed one more buy menu exploit (probably, the last one) ;).
- Fixed NEWITEM id,amount in case if non-exact value was given (like {x y}).
- Added cont argument to NEWITEM (now it looks NEWITEM id,amount,container).

16-02-05, Furio
- Fixed: compatibility things for Linux/BSD build.

27-02-05, Furio
- Added: STRREV for strings.
- Reverted to dynamic linked executable for the linux build. That permit some
  exception handling during signal raise.

01-03-05, Vjaka
- Fixed gaining fame and exp on summoned pets.
- Faster and more intelligent protection from fastloot like ,emptycontainer. The
  delays for picking now are 0.3 sec per item. Item with amount (popping dialog
  with input) adds extra 0.2 sec delay.

04-03-05, Vjaka
- Fixed an exploit with invalid book packet (thanks Fallout for reporting).
- Fixed @Destroy event not fired.
- Added the minimal delay before accepting sell/buy deal equal to 0.3 sec per
  each item. This limits the power of autobuy/autosell/inject sell all.
- Added client property CTAG similar to the TAG array. The difference is that
  the contents is not saved, and is destroyed upon logout - useful place to
  store your local variables on the client character.

06-03-05, Furio
- Some other fixes to improve Linux build stability.
- Now killing sphere with HUP make the server save and exit.
- Added support for 4.0.9 client encryption.
- Added more comprehensible messages to error output (bad login / garbage / save)

10-03-05, Vjaka
- Fixed placing items from invalid containers upon save loading to world nearby
  100,100 coords, these items should be deleted, so they are.
- Limited amount of items shown to client on screen to MaxItemComplexity*30 (by
  default 25*30 = 750).
- Removed goldreserve from guilds - use TAGs for this.
- Windows: added build date and time to the About box along with the version.

13-03-05, Furio
- Added SERV.GUILDSTONES.x to referer to the Xth guildstone in the server.

  master passing the uid as argument.
- Some minor fix to Linux build.

14-03-05, Vjaka
- Optimised object los check, should decrease waste of cpu on large shards.
- Fixed possible webpage exploit with malformed requests.
- Removed EMAIL property from accounts and all associated commands (EMAIL/
  ADDEMAIL,defmessages) - use account TAGs to work with it when needed.
- Removed server status responce from the standart ping/telnet connection.
- Fixed logging in localy when both RemoteAdmin and Administrator accounts were
  not found and LOCALIPADMIN was set.
- Fixed misprinted defmessage ncp_* to npc_* (2 matches), sphere_msgs.scp now
  comes commented by default - uncomment things only you need to change - most
  people will not need this file at all, so by this way we show that.

14-03-05, Furio
- Temp removed "Limited amount of items shown to client on screen".
- Moved FOLLOW from exe to scripts. Now MEMORY_FOLLOW(01000) is unused.
- Modified default info gump with a new one (thx to NHR).

17-03-05, Vjaka
- Removed EF_No_Pause_Packet, it is built in to code now.
- Drop item on vendor to trade quick, removed npc_vendor_sell (from 1.0).
- Setting SLEEPMASK=0 will give no time to sleeping sectors (from 1.0).
- Optimised few widely used checks like touch check.

29-03-05, Vjaka
- Removed debug message about not found pathfinding path.
- Fixed bug causing objects disappear on doubleclick.
- "Limited amount of items shown to client on screen" is back due this was not
  the cause of the previous bug ;).
- Removed verbose command. It was anyhow very limited in Release build.
- Added -c command line switch to WIN32 build. It allows changing registered
  class name for sphere, which helps working via windows messages with several
  sphere servers on the same machine.

05-04-05, Vjaka
- Made ARGN1 writeable in @Hunger.
- Fixed OptionFlags display instead of MagicIngoreAR.

11-04-05, Vjaka
- Packet filtering support heavily expanded. Now you have these variables:
  LOCAL.NUM (value) set to amount of data got from the packet
  LOCAL.STR (string) all data threated as a string (aware of zero chars)
  LOCAL.ACCOUNT (string) current active account if any is logged by the client
  LOCAL.CHAR (uid) current active char if any is logged in from the client
  and the all data is now given in LOCAL.x, not the only first 10 bytes.
- Returning 1 in PACKETx handler function no longer shows Bad Msg Eat string.
- Removing exception on invalid map point in some drop cases.
- Account named like account keywords (ADD/BLOCKED/etc) denied for creation.

12-04-05, Vjaka
- Walking via others with no penalty fixed (now it more like it was before in
  the times of 55i - more correct way). You can override this by changing ARGN1
  in @PersonalSpace trigger.
- Fixed message of guard owners always saying previous region guards owners.

14-04-05, Vjaka
- Fixed Sphere accepting a player character as a valid guard in some cases.
- Fixed guard walking to enemy even if they are cheaters (instantkill enabled).
- Added messaging flood control - equal sysmessages one after another will not
  be sent to the client (if they are absolutely identifical and no any other
  message was between them).
- Added STRIP [DIR/] console command. Reads all scripts and outputs them to new
  files with only [...], and base definitions lines. Good for giving script to
  your gms to be able to use axis with very basic information.

17-04-05, Vjaka
- Fixed bug with quick trade on player vendors.
- Fixed an exception caused by empty messages in some client events.

21-04-05, Furio
- Added 4.0.10 client keys.
- Fixed: bugs in getting vals from party.

21-04-05, Vjaka
- Fixed some cases (not all!) of scripts clearence by specifying incorrect
  directory in STRIP command. There are too many ways to specify direct or
  indirect path that will look different but will lead to the same file
  starting from symlinks, ending with messing with .. and dir seprarators (\/).
  Locking the file is not ok, since it will cause problems with other threads
  or applications working with file. So use this either with care, or with no
  argument ;)
- Added Axis tags support CATEGORY, SUBSECTION, DESCRIPTION to STRIP command. I
  do not use them, so did not add that when making the command :).

23-04-05, Furio
- Some fixes and optimization for Linux code.

03-05-05, Vjaka

- Disabled (temp.) Vjaka's messaging flood control.

24-05-05, Furio
- Fixed some bugs for Linux build.
- Added CanSee check in spellcast.

25-05-05, Vjaka
- Added OF_Flood_Protection as a control of toggling appearence of same
  messages and sysmessages one after another. Note, that this setting is always
  off for PLEVEL 2 or upper, so GMs will always get everything.
- Fixed copses giving unlimited blood amount. Now, the corpse gets TAG.BLOOD
  upon creation to TAG.MAXBLOOD of itemdef. You can also alter TAG.BLOOD upon
  creation on the coprse object. The default value is 5.
- Due to multiply requests, TAG.LastLogged is removed just after showing it to
  client. It is still there for the purpose to show real last connection date.
- Added INI setting of MOVERATE (default 100) to change the default moving
  speed of all NPCs at once. Remember, this is percent setting.
- Fixed bless and curse on items which lead to ultimate stats raise.

28-05-05, Furio

27-06-05, Vjaka
- Removed RESOURCES2 line since it never worked at all.
- Fixed variety of bugs with using some keywords like newitem from functions
  called directly from the server (like f_onserver_start). Special char is
  created for this purpose to be acting as a default object.
- Region now executes command for all sectors inside if the command is sector
  one (you can use REGION.all* instead of REGION.SECTORS.all*) for example.
  REGION.SECTORS command is depricated.
- Added StatsFlags setting to cap MAX(HITS/MANA/STAM) status.

01-07-05, Vjaka
- Added f_onserver_exit triggered on server quit. Quite useless since no saves
  are occured after then, but good for launching some prog using sysspawn.
- Townstones are now listed in status using TOWNLIST command, splitting town
  and guild stones to different links.
- Fixed calling guards on self.

03-07-05, Vjaka
- Fixed fightself bug. It was not fixed before. I did not notice that since do
  not use default summon creature spell. Thanks Handred for reporting.
- Trying to improve the rate and distance NPC sees characters around. Now it
  should happen faster, since higher distance is checked in areas with little
- Spawning NPC distance is now more random. Also now spawning checks the
  borders inside disallowing to spawn in unaccessable place. Thus, if you place
  spawn in house and the doors are closed, there is no possibility for NPC to
  spawn outside the house.
- The death now triggers inventory close to avoid appearing fake items inside
  that are no longer in the pack.

04-07-05, Vjaka
- Fixed impossibility to change type of the object to a non-default one.

08-07-05, Furio

  (the list is here http://www.scit.wlv.ac.uk/cgi-bin/mansec?3C+strftime ).
  e.g SERV.RTIME.FORMAT %d returns the number of the day.
- Fixed: animal trainer problem with EF_Walkcheck.
- Fixed: magic lock/unlock bugs.
- Fixed: dagger on static crop.

19-07-05, Vjaka
- Multithreading now should be more stable.
- Few misc fixes in combat, like added los check.

- Fixed: mounts disappearing. (thx to Gygrazok and Darkraven)
- Fixed: args not used in trigger @PersonalSpace. (thx to Darkraven)
- Fixed: Map teleports teleporting npcs.
- Added: 4th argument to map teleports. If is set to 1 npcs can use the teleport.
	By default is 0. Eg: 1,1,1,0=100,100,100,0=my_teleport=1 is enabled,
	1,1,1,0=100,100,100,0=my_teleport=0 or 1,1,1,0=100,100,100,0=my_teleport is

27-07-05, Vjaka
- Fixed: Several exceptions with latest client.

- Fixed: problems with spherechars_se.scp
- Added: defs to sphere_backward_compatibility.scp
- Fixed: some areas without guards (map0/map1).

30-07-05, Vjaka
- Added: MySQL support to scripts. You can execute any queries and statements,
  as well as get data from mysql link. A special script object similar to the
  FILE or OBJ added and is named DB.
  DB Properties:
    CONNECTED - the current state of database connection (1 or 0)
	ROW.NUMROWS - number of rows returned by last query
	ROW.NUMCOLS - number of columns returned by last query
	ROW.* - list of all columns returned by last query. Both column names and
	  numbers are saved in the list, so you can use indexes [0..] or column
	  names [id, name, etc] here.
  DB Methods:
    CLOSE - disconnects the SQL server
    CONNECT - connects to the database (using mysql settings in sphere.ini)
	EXECUTE - executes SQL query not filling any results anywhere
	QUERY - executes SQL query filling ROW.* properties information
  Example of a simple query:

- Redone new items sending (should save some unneeded packets)

04-07-2006, MrSugarCube
- Modified: SERV.CLIENT.x reference no longer accepts x if it is out of range
  (use SERV.CLIENTS property to check range).
- Modified: SERV.CLIENT.x reference no longer skips clients without characters
  (such as HTTP, or telnet connections), which caused strange behaviour.

  the current skill is less than the actual difficulty + GAINRADIUS to prohibit skillgain

  (CAN-Flag mt_passwalls (08))

02-08-2006, Furio
- Added: STRREGEX(pattern,string) that execute a pattern matching supporting the
  known standard. Return: 1 match found, 0 match not found, -1 illegal pattern syntax.

04-08-2006, Nazghul
(most code revised, debugged and (re)designed by Ellessar when I was up to drop
this all in desperation)
- Added: Function AddContextEntry. what takes 2 to 4 arguments separated by a comma.
   SRC.AddContextEntry EntryTag,TextID,Flags,Color
   EntryTag - the number to return as ARGN by @(item)ContextMenuSelect. Make it unique.
            - EntryTags from 0 to 100 are reserved by Sphere for internal use, so do not
              use it.
   TextID - CLILOCed name of the button. The number from cliloc.[your_localization]
            WITHOUT the leading "300" or such! Just type "5194" or "11010"
   Flags - 01 - locked (will be grayed out)
         - 02 - consecutive entries with this flag set will be summarized under
                a golden arrow
         - 020 - can be colored
   Color (applied only if Flags & 020) - hue

- Added: Trigger @ContextMenuRequest/@itemContextMenuRequest which is fired after
  receiving a display Popup-menu client request (single click on an object).

  It can be fired two times, each call has a different ARGN.

  The first time it is fired before any hardcoded stuff is added to the Popup-menu.
  Here, Return 1 denies displaying any hardcoded entries, but if you make a softcoded
  entry, it WILL be displayed. It also will prohibit the second call of the trigger.
  Both, Return 0 and Return 2 allows hardcoded stuff to be added. If you change ARGN,
  the trigger will be called once more (but ARGN != 1).

  The second time it is fired after all hardcoded stuff was added (so you can add
  your stuff to the bottom of the Popup-menu). Return value has no effect at all.

  The first call:
   In:  ARGN = 1
   Out: Return 1 - only your stuff will be added (IF ANY), prohibits the second call
        Return 0/2 - your and hardcoded stuff will be added
        ARGN (ARGN != 1) - allows the second call

  The second call:
   In:  ARGN = 2
   Out: Return 0/1/2 - does nothing
        ARGN - does nothing

- Added: Trigger @ContextMenuSelect/@itemContextMenuSelect which is fired after
  a client selects something from a Popup-menu. ARGN is a value, which was sent
  by the server to the client as the first argument with the AddContextEntry function.

06-08-2006, MrSugarCube
- Modified: SERV.ACCOUNT.x now returns 1 if the account name or index exists, or 0 if not.
- Added: P.STATICS.x.COLOR and P.STATICS.x.Z can be used to find the colour and height
  of static items.
- Modified: Setting BONUS_STATS to 0 in SKILL definitions disables using BONUS_x properties
  when calculating stat gains for that skill instead of blocking all stat gains for it. If
  you want to prevent stat gains, you should either set STAT_x to 0, or set BONUS_x to 0
  with BONUS_STATS greater than 0.

  online players, use FORCLIENTS.

17-08-2006, MrSugarCube

- Fixed #744: Line Of Sight check going from out of a house into the house was successful,
  but not vice versa.
- Fixed: Item flags and height was always inherited from the parent item
  (the item with DUPELIST=), what damaged almost all Line Of Sight checks.

- Added: COMBAT_USE_RESISTANCE to INI CombatFlags (010). If set, RES* on characters will
  also be weighted against normal damage if the old fashioned damage flags are set.
  and items. The server will only evaluate the tags on characters, and if ComBatFlag
  COMBAT_SPECIALDAMAGE is set. Then any damage done to others (if it's damage type contains
  at least one of the physical types OR magic) will be increased by the value of the
  appropriate tag, lowered by the RES* percentage of the victim.
  Tags on items will not be evaluated by the server - their values can be used to for
  example increase the TAGs or the RES* properties on characters on equip of the item.
  This way you can use TAG.*DAMAGE on a weapon to increase the wearer's appropriate
  damage tag, or on a piece of armor to increase his RES*, or to whatever you want.

31-08-2006, Nazghul
- Added: NPC trigger @PetDesert. Fires when a pet decides to go wild.
  Default object is the pet, SRC the master. RETURN 1 changes the pet's mind.

  the point, and 1 if one does.
- Added: Support for the new BandageSelf and BandageTarget macros found in the
  latest clients (5.0.4). Using the macro will act as if the client has just
  targeted something with the bandage (and so @[item]TargOn_Item will be called).

01-09-2006, MrSugarCube

  syntax: ADDBUFF IconId ClilocOne ClilocTwo Seconds Text1 Text2(optional) Text3(optional)
          The text fields are supposed to hold max. 3 characters each (numbers) and will
          be cut off if larger.
  These functions only work with client 5.0.3 or above.

06-09-2006, Nazghul (script pack)

  only an annoyance for not english language shards
- Changed: Key links will only be blanked if they are pointing to an invalid item UID now.
  Before everything what was neither container nor multi was considered "invalid", so keys
  with the UID of a door, or themselves could turn blank.
- Added #848: Character trigger @SpellSelect. Doing pretty much the same as the spell trigger
  @select and has the same arguments/parameters
- Fixed #778: Wrong spellbook recognition with more than one spellbook std., necro, ...)
  in pack.
- Updated: sphere.ini - Removed experimental flag EF_New_Walkcheck.

16-09-2006, Nazghul

  t_dye_vat instead of only i_dye_tub. Making it switcheable for all those who have concerns
  about exploitability (even as I do not see any risk) - we all remember the times when
  injection users colored whole shards pink.

17-09-2006, MrSugarCube

- changed GAINRADIUS so that it no longer defaults to anything - if not set on a skill
  it's just transparent (as if never invented)

22-09-2006, Nazghul
- Fixed #846: Bad character DispID displayed if there was serv.chardef called no NPC
  in the world with this ID.

24-09-2006, Nazghul
- Added: Function CONTCONSUME  , which consumes  amount of an item with id 
  from a referenced container and its subcontainers. Function does nothing on chars (use consume)
  and on non-container items.
  Example: findlayer.29.contconsume i_gold 100000
- Added: Item trigger @Buy and character trigger @itemBuy, which are called before item is sold
  by a vendor. The trigger is called only with EF_New_Triggers on.
  ACT/DEFAULT is the item, SRC is the player, ARGN is the item amount, ARGO is the vendor.
  Return 1 prevents the player from buying the item.
- Added: Item trigger @Sell and character trigger @itemSell, which are called before item is bought
  by a vendor. The trigger is called only with EF_New_Triggers on.
  ACT/DEFAULT is the item, SRC is the player, ARGN is the item amount, ARGO is the vendor.
  Return 1 prevents the player from selling the item.
- Fixed: Serv.itemdef.xxx.skill not always returning the skill
- Fixed: A copy & paste error in TAG.OVERRIDE.AMMO* what prevented the animation stuff to run.

25-09-2006, Nazghul
- Added: EF_DamageTool (0x2000) to Sphere.ini. Only if set tools/weapons will be damaged while
  lumberjacking/mining (what includes firing @Damage on them)
- Fixed: NPCs spawning with incorrect Z position.

26-09-2006, Nazghul
- Modified: @(item)ContextMenuRequest and @(item)ContextMenuSelect now will not be called with
  EF_Minimize_Triggers on.

27-09-2006, Nazghul
- Added: TDATA3 and TDATA4 of a container type item are now holding min and max coordinates of
  the "area were items may be placed", relatively to the open container gump.
  TDATA3 is (MinX * 0x10000) + MinY, TDATA4 is (MaxX * 0x10000) + MaxY
  Be very careful with these settings - if they are set to illegal values (i.e., outside of the
  visible gump) Sphere will happily accept them, but your users will not be able to pick items
  placed there out of the container, because the client will only display then if they have the
  container gump as a background!
  If TDATA4 is not set (or set to 0), default values will apply, along with the console warning
  "unknown gump id".

28-09-2006, Nazghul
- Added: MOREM value (0..127) on digestible food will override the amount of "food units"
  what will be added to the characters FOOD property when eating this. Obviously, items
  with different MOREM will not stack. Because on=@SUCCESS on cooking will not give you
  a reference to the newly created item but only to the raw one, MOREM will be transferred
  from the raw food (what you may alter in on=@success)

29-09-2006, Nazghul
- Added: 3 defmessages, thus making the headline for the "c" console command configurable.

01-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: Intrinsic function IsObscene what tests whether the passed argument is a forbidden
  word (list of these words are in your spheretables.scp under the section OBSCENE).
- Fixed: Obscene not matching obscened words inside a string.
- Fixed #889: Fame.* and Karma.* always returning 0.
- Updated: spheretables.scp - added KARMA and FAME sections. Now you can change, add or remove
  keys which are used behind Karma. and Fame. . First line declares steps, other lines their

02-10-2006, Nazghul (Script Pack)
- Fixed #867: sphere_minor_artifacts.scp, i_orcish_visage
- Updated: Flags notification on server startup

02-10-2006, Nazghul
- Fixed #898: Some stairs unwalkable with EF_NewPositionChecks, EF_WalkCheck and
  EF_DiagonalWalkCheck on.

05-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: INI flag OF_OSIDamageMod (0x04)
  Modifying weapon damage OSI style, according to this formulas (originally provided by ClouD_Br):
  Tactics Damage Bonus% = Tactics � 1.6 (Add 6.25% if Tactics >= 100)
  Anatomy Damage Bonus% = (Anatomy � 2) + 5
  Lumberjack Damage Bonus% = Lumberjack � 2 (Add 10% if Lumberjacking >= 100)
  Strength Damage Bonus% = Strength * 0.3 (Add 5% if Strength >= 100)
  Final Damage Bonus% = Tactics Bonus + Anatomy Bonus + Lumber Bonus + Strangth Bonus + Damage Increase Items*
  Final Damage = Base Damage + (Base Damage * Final Damage Bonus%)
  * Damage Increase is capped at 100%.

05-10-2006, Nazghul
- Fixed #036: Fixed TRY and TRYSRV not working with locals (local and arg*). TRYSRC and TRYP
  do not work, since it makes no sense to use it on local variables. (Thx to Ellessar who
  finally worked out how this SHOULD work, so we found the bug deeply buried under tons of
  old code)

06-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: Function ISNEARTYPETOP(.P) which uses new checks for resource gathering (item which
  you want to find must be at the top, if at the top there are 2 items, then the success
  depends on the priority (dynamic->multi->static->terrain) of those items). Syntax is the
  same with ISNEARTYPE(.P). NOTE: This function is called from hardcode if EF_NewPositionChecks
  are on.
- Fixed #668: Delete packets of items which cannot be seen were sent to the client.
- Modified #632: Now, IsPlayer can be used on every game object.
- Modified: sphere.ini - added an NPC AI flag NPC_AI_INTFOOD which enables smarter and more
  trustworthy food finding.

08-10-2006, Furio
- Modified: TRIGGER command. It now supports calling a trigger with arguments, the syntax is:
  TRIGGER $trigger_name[,$trigger_arg_type,...] where $trigger_arg_type can be:
  - TAT_AS_ARGN (1): uses arguments as ARGN. Example: TRIGGER @MyTest,,1,2,3
                     will call @MyTest with ARGN1=1 ARGN2=2 ARGN3=3.
  - TAT_AS_ARGS (2): uses arguments as ARGS. Example: TRIGGER @MyTest,,hi you 2,yo !
                     will call @MyTest with ARGS=hi you 2,yo !.
  - TAT_AS_ARGO (3): uses arguments as ARGN. Example: TRIGGER @MyTest,,01
                     will call @MyTest with ARGO.UID=01 (only if object with such uid exist).
- Updated: sphere_defs.scp (with new definitions for the TRIGGER command).
- Fixed #880: Explode function not working as it should.

09-10-2006, Nazghul
- fixed problems with spellbooks obviously triggered by new Gcc compiler for Linux with a weird

10-10-2006, Nazghul

  while in warmode.

11-10-2006, Nazghul (Script Pack)
- Updated: sphere_msgs.scp - more defmessages to customize text output.
- Updated (#905): sphere_item_provisions_potions.scp - Shrink potion did not behave as expected.

13-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: Intrinsic functions SIN() and COS(). Attention: Without FLOAT math they will obviously
  only return 0 and 1 :)

16-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: Support for floats (local variables FLOAT.younameit, which have size of double, and
  can hold precise numbers). Usage of these variables is the same like LOCAL.younameit. As
  EVAL only uses integer arithmetic, with FLOAT math you have to use 
  (New code was done mainly by Ellessar and Decrythe, I just "glued" it into Sphere :) )
- Changed: Return values for @SPELLSELECT trigger. Touchup for @SELECT with spells. Different
  server behaviour can be achieved with the following RETURN values in trigger scripts:
  	RETURN 0 - proceed without mana, spellbook, and reagent check as if these checks were
		RETURN 1 - Abort processing (so aborting the spell)
	  RETURN 2 - proceed as normal
	  RETURN 6 - like RETURN 0 (for compatibility with @SPELLSELECT)
  	RETURN 0 - proceed as normal
		RETURN 1 - abort processing (so aborting the spell)
	  RETURN 2 - proceed as normal
	  RETURN 6 - proceed without mana, spellbook, and reagent check as if these checks were
  @SPELLSELECT will be called after @SELECT - what means, if you leave @SELECT with RETURN 0 or
  RETURN 1, @SPELLSELECT will NOT be called!

16-10-2006, Furio
- Added: DAM.HI/LO and ARMOR.HI/LO

17-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: Defmessage if skillgain is aborted due to GAINRADIUS not met; message will only be displayed
  if TAG.NOSKILLMSG=1 on character
- Fixed: Problems with long passwords and MD5 hash on.

18-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added INI flag OF_DrinkIsFood (0x10000). If set, T_DRINK will increase FOOD lvl. like T_FOOD

19-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: Dynamic property "height" for characters.

20-10-2006, Nazghul
- Updated: sphere_defs.scp - added defname charheight.

21-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: New "m" paramter for TARGET function. Now you can use TARGETM and TARGETFM for targeting
  a place for your multi (you will see your multi in the "ghost mode"). TARGETM takes as an argument
  ONLY ID of the multi, TARGETFM takes 2 arguments - function_to_call,ID_ot_the_multi.

21-10-2006, Nazghul (Changes only for servers with EF_NewPositionCheck on and AdvancedLOS on)
- Modified: CanSeeLOS now uses height of a character for its checks. Height is read in this order
  and first correct entry is used:
  1. Dynamic height property of an object
  2. Height property under CHARDEF/ITEMDEF (can be inherited)
  3. Defname in format "height_dispid", while dispid is a hex number in Sphere format (0a3)
  4. Defname in format "height_dispid", while dispid is a dec number
  5. Universal height - "15"
  If a character is mounted, its height is raised by 4. CanSeeLOS reduce height of an unmounted
  character by 1 (pretending eyes height).
  NOTE: This formula is used when you are doing .show height, or  in scripts.

23-10-2006, Nazghul
- Fixed: #789 ModAR on characters only worked with damage of type GENERAL.

23-10-2006, MrSugarCube
- Fixed: Webpage requests always displaying the "Internal Server Error" page.

24-10-2006, Nazghul
- Added: Trigger @(item)Buy now has local.totalcost, which holds the cost of the whole purchase
  and ARGN2, which holds price of this amount of items (price * amount).
- Fixed: Trigger @(item)Buy returning bad amount in ARGN1.
- Added: Local variables LOCAL.CREATEOBJECT1 and LOCAL.CREATEOBJECT2 to @SUCCESS trigger of spells.
  These variables are _unset_ when the trigger is called. But they can be _set_ with field- and
  summon spells to change what these spells will create.
  - Summon spells (summon creature, bladeSpirit, Vortex, summon daemon, summon *elemental) take only
    the first one. If set with LOCAL.CREATEOBJECT1 =  the spell will summon an orc. This
    way one can add more random daemons to the summon daemon spell, or change the spawned creature
    due to magery or whatever.
  - field spells (s_wall_of_stone, s_fire_field etc) take both variables, as usually the items for
    the field in west-east direction are different from those in north-south direction. If necessary
    they can of course be the same (s_fire_field looks impressive with i_fire_columns :) ), but BOTH
    have to be set (otherwise the unset will be replaced by the spell's default item for this dir).
    [SPELL s_fire_field]
      IF  >= 99.9

24-10-2006, Pilz-e (Script pack)

  the msg_mounted_ceiling defmessage.

25-10-2006, Nazghul
- Changed: NPC_AI flags in sphere.ini. Started splitting them up to make it easier to track
  errors related to them. The respective INI section now reads:
  // NPC AI settings
  //	NPC_AI_PATH		0001		NPC pathfinding
  //	NPC_AI_FOOD		0002		NPC food search (objects + grass)
  //	NPC_AI_EXTRA		0004		NPC magics, etc
  //	NPC_AI_ALWAYSINT	0008		Always be as smart as possible with pathfinding
  //	NPC_AI_INTFOOD		0010		NPC food search (more intelligent and trusworthy)
  //	NPC_AI_COMBAT		0040		Look for friends in combat
  //	NPC_AI_VEND_TIME	0080		vendors closing their shops at nighttime

- Added: *Experimental* flag "EF_Mapdiff_Support" added to sphere.ini. Enables using mapdif and stadif
  files to patch terrain and statics.

04-01-2007, MrSugarCube
- Fixed: Buying from vendors allowing players to carry more weight than they should. Excess items are
  now dropped to the ground.
- Fixed: Selling to off-duty vendors showing a warning message about an illegal "buy packet" instead
  of "sell packet". Also added more detail to buy/sell packet cheater warnings.
- Modified: Resync messages are now always visible on the console.

05-01-2007, MrSugarCube
- Fixed #1011: Trade title on the paperdoll written incorrectly.

- Fixed: Sphere now adds and removes the hiding/stealth buff icon automatically

06-01-2007, MrSugarCube
- Fixed: SERV.RESYNC command being executed from scripts causing the server to freeze. Note that using
  SERV.RESYNC from scripts will now cause the resync pause to be delayed until after the script has
  completed execution.
- Modified: EFFECT property of crafting skills can now be used to define the percentage of resources
  that are lost when failing to craft an item. A few examples of how you can use this:
   "EFFECT=x"		- Always lose x% of resources on fail
   "EFFECT=x,y"		- Lose between x% and y% of resources on fail
   "EFFECT=x,y,z"	- Lose between x% and z% of resources on fail (weighted by y)
  If EFFECT is not set then resource loss will be as normal -> 0-50% resources lost.
- Added: TAG.OVERRIDE.GUARDS on regions to specify different guards per region.
- Added: Arguments for @CallGuards trigger:
   ARGN1 = Guard ID that will be created. (writable)
   ARGN2 = Force spawning a new guard. (writable)
   ARGO  = An already spawned guard that will be used, unless ARGN2 has been set to 1.

08-01-2007, MrSugarCube
- Fixed #1004: Target cursor appearing when calling functions starting with "SET" or "X".
- Added #1013: SYSMESSAGELOC, for sending localized messages to clients. SMSGL can also be used as a shortcut.
  Syntax is: "SYSMESSAGELOC color,clilocid[,arguments]"
  All arguments must be separated by a comma ",". Specify -1 for color if you do not wish to override it.
  Some examples of this being used (latest clilocs) are:
   "SYSMESSAGELOC -1,502771"			- Displays "You cannot reach that."
   "SYSMESSAGELOC 2,1042758,MrSugarCube"	- Displays "You are now loyal to MrSugarCube." in blue
   "SYSMESSAGELOC -1,1062695,MrSugarCube,4,5"	- Displays "MrSugarCube rolls the dice and gets a 4 and
						  a 5!"
- Modified #1013: '@color,font,unicode' in messages is now '@color,font,mode'. You can specify 1 for mode if
  you wish to use unicode (like before), or specify 2 if you wish to use a localized message (useful for
  overriding messages in sphere_msgs.scp). The above localization examples used with this method would be:
   "SYSMESSAGE @,,2 502771"
   "SYSMESSAGE @2,,2 1042758,MrSugarCube"
   "SYSMESSAGE @,,2 1062695,MrSugarCube,4,5"

  checks on a dclicked item won't be performed.

16-01-2007, MrSugarCube
- Added #1029: @Cancel trigger to MENUs and SKILLMENUs.
- Modified: Items displayed on MENUs and SKILLMENUs can now be coloured. This can be done by prefixing the
  item description with "@color" (in the same way that sysmessages can be coloured). For example,
  "ON=i_sword_viking @2 This is a viking sword" will display a blue sword on the menu.
- Modified: Cancelling a PROMPTCONSOLE prompt no longer prevents the callback function from being called.

16-01-2007, SaCi (Script pack)

  your scripts (thus completely useless for script thieves). The file will be 
  placed at the location defined with "StripPath=" in sphere.ini and is named 
  "tngstrip.scp. Can be delivered either by a dedicated web server or the built-in

  If you want to override all 6.0.1.* clients to use the packet
  changes (and thus correct the issue with slower connections, but at the

 > Note that Sphere will require access to doors.txt, misc.txt, floors.txt,
   teleprts.txt, roof.txt, and  walls.txt from the UO folder as these provide
   lists of valid items. Also, all these items should exist in scripts for them
   to be added to a building - note that the default script pack is currently
   missing several sets of floors and walls.

                            RETURN 1: Keeps the client in design mode (if ARGN1

  unexpected things will happen if you've set this to be a non-magic skill (for
  example, Begging), so make sure the SKF_MAGIC flag is set on such skills.
14-12-2007, coruja747 (Script pack)

- Updated: sphere_map_points2.scp (Inaccessible teleports on Exodus Dungeon)

21-12-2007, MrSugarCube
- Modified: Ships now move 2 spaces at a time instead of 1. This reduces a lot
  of lag caused by ship movement and also fixes overhead messages disappearing
  whilst the ship is in motion.
- Added: SHIPSPEED property to ship ITEMDEFs. This controls how often and how far
  the ship will move. SHIPSPEED.PERIOD and SHIPSPEED.TILES can be used to return
  the separate values. Usage:
    "SHIPSPEED=5,3"     Ship will move 3 tiles every half a second.
    "SHIPSPEED=1,5"     Ship will move 5 tiles every tenth of a second.
    "SHIPSPEED=20,2"    Ship will move 2 tiles every 2 seconds.
  Note 1: If there is less space available than specified by SHIPSPEED.TILES,
  the ship will still move as far as possible before stopping (so if a ship is
  set to move 10 tiles and is heading towards a coast that is 16 tiles away, the
  ship will move 10 tiles, then 6 tiles, and then stop.
  be set on the ships themselves to override their speed on an individual basis.

22-12-2007, Nazghul
- Added: Triggers @NPCAction and @NPCSpecialAction
  If the NPC has a lot of spare time (i.e., nothing else to do) it
  looks for some special action. For example, giant spiders lay webs,
  and fire elems leave fire patches. This trigger fires on ANY type
  of creature. If you return 1, it will not do it's special action,
  on return 0 it will (what, as said above, will only be true with
  giant spiders and fire elems; you can script other NPC special
  events yourself).

  AI-related trigger. If the situation is so the NPC will do something
  due to it's AI - things like animals pooping the ground, vendors
  going off/on duty, (un)equipping a lightsource when it's dark, 
  (un)equipping a weapon when fighting, stabler feeding animals or
  giving players food for their animals etc. - (once hardcoded behaviour
  was planned also for beggars who should sleep at night, for thieves,
  undead mages, healers, and more, but never realized. Now you can script
  this yourself) this trigger will be fired. On RETURN 0 
  the NPC will continue with what it wants to do, RETURN 1 will abort it.

  Both triggers will fire only if EF_NPCAct_Triggers is SET and 
  EF_Minimize_Triggers is NOT SET in the sphere.INI. SO if you don't
  change your INI, everything will stay as it was before.

22-12-2007, MrSugarCube
- Fixed #1341: Arguments not being parsed correctly for commands entered
  on the console.
- Fixed #1331: Script verbs not being parsed correctly when there is a
  space in them (ie. TAG.xxx_ = zzz).

04-01-2008, Nazghul
- Added: Triggers @Mount and @Dismount, both are character trigger, firing 
	when a character tries to mount/dismout it's ride (and will be able to).
    ARGO is the UID of the (still disconnected!) pet.
    RETURN 1 stops the dismount process.
    ARGO is the UID of the NPC bound to be ridden.
    RETURN 1 stops the mounting process.

- Fixed: CALL not working with object references. (eg. "CALL src.myfunction")
- Fixed: ++/-- in scripts being parsed as +=1 when not being used as operators.

- Added #1358: now serv.newitem has a 4th argument if set to 1 trigger @Equip will
  be called upon item equipping.
- Added: SERV.MAPLIST.$mapid.$prop to cycle through maps to get props. The list of
  properties that can be accessed (read only) are:
  BOUND.X = maximum x for the map
	BOUND.Y = maximum y for the map
	CENTER.X = x coord of map center
  CENTER.Y = y coord of map center
	SECTOR.SIZE = size of sectors
	SECTOR.ROWS = qty of sector rows for the map
  SECTOR.COLS = qty of sector columns for the map
  SECTOR.QTY = total number of sectors for the map
- Added: FeatureKR and Kr reslevel (6). Guess what they do (it's a wip).
- Added: EF_UseNetworkMulti (00800000) to experimental flags. Tired of crashing due
  too many items/npcs, try it. Don't change it while the server is running.
  (Thx to Z. for the windows version)

21-01-2008, MrSugarCube
- Fixed #1311: NPC Pathfinding failing when EF_DiagonalWalkCheck is enabled.

  DIALOGLIST.$x.ID ($x = a number between 0 and DIALOGLIST.COUNT-1) the ID of the
  respective gump dialog, and DIALOGLIST.$x.COUNT the number of active instances of
  this dialog. So to close a specified gump, DIALOGCLOSE  should do.
- Added KRTOOLBARSTATUS (prop/verb) and @UserKRToolbar (ARGN1 type, ARGN2 arg) to
  interact with the hotbar in the KR client.

03-02-2008, Shadow Dragon

  ARGN1 = Karma/Fame modifier, it's writable.
  return 0 will use Argn1 value in adjusting.
  return 1 will break adjusting.

  them), negotiate corners with EF_DiagonalWalkCheck enabled, and attempt to compensate
  when new obstacles block a previously valid path.
- Fixed #1390: Locals not working in SKILLMENUs.

  auction system.

19-05-2008, Shadow Dragon
- Modified: GOLD property adds new gold stacks to bankbox.

21-05-2008, Nazghul 
- Added: Combat flags to Sphere.ini to allow stacking armor and aimed hits. Example of usage
  is in scripts/AddOns. 
  Aimed hits are controlled by tags on the "hitter": TAG.HITPREFERENCE holds the targetted
  zone: 1=head, 2=neck/throat, 3=back, 4=chest, 5=arms, 6=hands, 7=legs, 8=feet (if the value
  is out of this range it will be changed by %9; "0" means: no preference set);
  TAG.HITPREFERENCE_CHANCE (0..1000) is the chance to really hit the desired area;
  TAG.HITPREFERENCE.BONUS is the percent the damage is raised when hit where desired,
  TAG.HITPREFERENCE.PENALTY is the percent the damage is lowered if the area was missed.
  The last two values are defaulting to "30".
  The system is perhaps useful to script a system where a player can look for weak armored
  bodyparts of his opponent and try to hit him there; could be essential if armor stacking
  is used.

  "return 1" forbids deletion. WARNING! putting return 1 in this trigger means it won't be deleted
  in any possible way! Use it with caution.

03-09-2008, Nazghul

  "additional" items crafted will neither fire any trigger, nor give experience or skill. So,
  from that point of view there's no difference between "MAKEITEM i_dagger" and "MAKEITEM i_dagger,10"
  (except for the number of daggers created). If the resources you have are insufficiant for
  the amount, it will be shortened respectively.

  property which returns 0 if the component is invisible (usually applies to doors and signs).

16-09-2008, Nazghul
- Added: Override Tags for item/action related sound.
    (what it does should be obvious)
  TAG.OVERRIDE.PORTCULISSOUND - holds an sfx number played when 
    opening/closing a portculis
  TAG.OVERRIDE.DROPSOUND - sfx an items makes when dropped. Att:
    system default sounds sometimes change due to the amount dropped
    (gold, ingots), or on what surface/item the item is dropped. All
    this will be overridden!
  TAG.OVERRIDE.SOUND_HIT - on weapons holds the sound when it hits,
    regardless of WHAT it hits!
  TAG.OVERRIDE.SOUND_MISS - on weapons, sound they make when missing

  all TAGs need to hold a number (defname MAY be possible -> test!),
  what also can be "0" (zero) with the meaning: don't play any sound.

17-09-2008, Nazghul
- Added: Trigger @PICKUP_STACK what fires only if an item was picked up from a pile.

  rides. Note that this flag is not required for the bodies that could already mount rides prior

  all character bodies are intended to be used for mounting rides and won't have proper riding

07-12-2008, MrSugarCube
- Added #1086: Skill degradation for skills that have been set to decrease. @SkillChange trigger
  is called for decaying skills just as it does when they gain (compare  to <> to
  determine if the skill is being increased or lowered).
- Added: Experimental flag EF_UseNetworkMultiVersionMod. This modifies the behaviour of the
  EF_UseNetworkMulti flag (don't forget to set this too) so that clients older than 4.0.0 will
  be unaffected and continue to use the original networking code as if the EF_UseNetworkMulti
  flag was never set.

03-01-2009, Dwayne1988 (Script pack)
- Updated: spherechar_human.scp, spherechar_evil.scp (Axis Tags were messed up, came after

  use that item." being sent to players as they try to free themselves from spider webs.
- Added #1564: PetsInheritNotoriety setting to sphere.ini. This can be used to specify which
  notoriety flags a pet will inherit from its master (so if for example a pet has an evil owner

22-02-2009, MrSugarCube
- Fixed #1575: Improved handling of unicode speech in Linux build.

22-02-2009, nazghul

  character it was used on; ARROWQUEST without arguments (to remove the quest arrow)
  clears these tags. 
- Added: Character trigger @UserQuestArrowClick now has ARGN2 (x-ccord) and ARGN3 (y-coord).
  Just rightclicking the arrow does not clear the tags mentioned above, so the quest arrow
  can be restarted by script if the user illegitimely switched it off

26-02-2009, MrSugarCube

  for individual spells.

06-05-2009, MrSugarCube

  casting a spell the player is given this many seconds to choose a target before the spell is
  automatically cancelled.

16-05-2009, MrSugarCube
- Modified #1610: Cure spell just sends the packet needed to update the health bar rather than sending
  a full refresh of the entire screen.
- Added #1609: MAGICF_SUMMONWALKCHECK flag to ensure that summoned creatures can only be successfully
  summoned on tiles that are walkable for them (i.e. a sea creature can only be summoned on water).

- Updated: sphere_msgs.scp (Added msg_summon_invalidtarg defmessage)

18-05-2009, MrSugarCube

  Syntax is: "SYSMESSAGELOCEX color,clilocid,flags,affix[,arguments]"
  All arguments must be separated by a comma ",". Specify -1 for color if you do not wish to override
  it. Known possible values for flags are:
    0x00 = Append text to message
    0x01 = Prepend text to message
    0x02 = Forces message to show as a system message
  A couple of examples of this being used (latest clilocs) are:
   "SYSMESSAGELOCEX -1,1008078,01,MrSugarCube"                    - Displays "MrSugarCube : Attempting to heal you."
   "SYSMESSAGELOCEX -1,3002003,00,Smoking is bad for your health" - Displays "Note to self:  Smoking is bad for your health"
  For overriding messages in sphere_msgs.scp (or other message functions such as SAY and MESSAGE) the
  syntax "@hue,font,3 clilocid,flags,affix[,arguments]" can be used, for example:
   "SAY @022,,3 1008097,01,MrSugarCube"                           - Object says "MrSugarCube : poisoned you!" in red

  contains *basic* definitions for items in tiledata.mul that have no corresponding
  Sphere script.

12-09-2009, MrSugarCube
- Fixed #1623: RESTEST requiring 1 of an item when checking for a quantity of 0. This also
  affects other resource-list-based functions and properties such as CONSUME, FOODTYPE,
- Fixed #1655: Setting RAINCHANCE and COLDCHANCE to zero does did not disable rain or snow.
- Modified: When loading a WORLD* block from a save Sphere can resolve defnames to find the
  object being loaded (like the ones in sphere_backward_compatibility.scp, for example).

12-09-2009, Coruja (Script pack)
- Updated #1645: sphere_template_vend.scp, sphere_item_resources.scp, spherechar_human.scp,
  sphere_item_provisions_potions.scp, sphere_backward_compatibility.scp (Corrected spelling

- Updated #1654: sphere_defs.scp (Adjusted height of the Meer characters)

13-09-2009, MrSugarCube
- Fixed #1595: @Destroy trigger not being fired for items inside removed containers. When
  returning 1 in @Destroy on an item inside a container about to be deleted, the item will
  be dropped to the ground (unless the item has already been moved elsewhere).
- Fixed #1656: Exception when players trade and item 01e5e has not been set as a container

05-12-2009, MrSugarCube
- Fixed: Unable to connect to remoteadmin from telnet clients that operate in 'line mode'
  and need the enter key to be pressed after CTRL+A/Space (the one in Ubuntu, for example).
- Modified: Rewritten networking system, based on the code Vjaka wrote for 0.57 combined
  with updates added since such as EF_UseNetworkMulti. This new system introduces features
  such as packet prioritisation which should help to keep clients responsive even in areas
  with a large number of objects.
  The EF_UseNetworkMulti and EF_UseNetworkMultiVersion experimental flags have been removed
  from the ini and different settings have been added to a new "Network Behaviour" section.
  The default settings should suit most users, but in some cases it may help to tweak the
  MaxPacketsPerTick and MaxQueueSize settings.

06-12-2009, MrSugarCube
- Added: Support for gargoyle character creation. For the option to be available the player
  must have a RESDISP of 7+ and the FEATURE_SA_UPDATE flag needs to be enabled in Sphere.ini.
  ARGN3 in the f_onchar_create (sphere_serv_trigger.scp) is now the character race (1=human,
  2=elf, 3=gargoyle).
- Added: Basic support for mysticism spellbook and skill (the actual spell effects need to be
- Added #1657: Support for the increased tiledata size in client 7.0.0+. As a consequence,
  multis must now start from 08000 instead of 04000 and scripts must be adjusted accordingly
  (the default script pack has been updated). If an older client encounters an item within the
  04000-07fff range they will only see a worldgem bit (01ea7).
- Fixed #1661: Status bar not correctly showing green or yellow in 7.0.0+ clients.
- Modified: The size of Map5.mul is now automatically detected.

06-12-2009, MrSugarCube (Script pack)

  commented out by default)

12-12-2009, MrSugarCube
- Added: Support for gargoyle flying ability. Flying characters will have statf_hovering set
  on their FLAGS property and will be allowed to pass over items that have the CAN_I_HOVER
  flag set.
  The exact effects of the statf_hovering flag are:
   - Can pass over hidden 'hover over' tiles to get to special areas
   - Can move at the same speed as a mounted player
   - Height is increased by 4 in LOS/movement checks (same effects as when mounted)
   - When stamina is lost on movement, the running penalty is always applied
   - Always revealed when moving whilst hidden
   - Will not teleport off ships when moving on to a ship plank
- Added: MULTIDEF block. This can be used to safeguard against any future changes to the size
  of tiledata.mul. This basically acts as a 'shortcut' for ITEMDEF, except the ID will 
  automatically be increased by 08000. Items defined with this are still accessible as normal
  via SERV.ITEMDEF.id(+08000)/defname, or SERV.MULTIDEF.id/defname can be used if you prefer
  for consistency.
- Added #1674: PINS property to maps, to return the number of pins on the map.
- Fixed #1672: Situations where returning 0 in a trigger would return as 2.

12-12-2009, MrSugarCube (Script pack)

- Updated #1684: sphere_item_magic_armor.scp, sphere_item_magic_leather.scp,
  sphere_item_magic_weapon.scp, sphere_item_misc.scp, sphere_item_profession_cartographer.scp,
  sphere_item_provisions_armor_color.scp, sphere_item_provisions_deed.scp,
  sphere_item_provisions_ore.scp (Replaced custom script IDs with defnames to fix conflicts
  with new tiledata size -- some items did not have a defname so watch out if you have any of
  these in an existing world save)

13-12-2009, MrSugarCube
- Fixed #1683: Hiding skill not properly updating clients to show the character is gray.
- Added #1678: Logging for commands issued via telnet. "TelnetLog" setting can be used

20-12-2009, MrSugarCube

  member, to change who the party master is. The character must be an existing member of the
  party and cannot already be the master.
- Added #1658: @TargetCancel trigger to spells (and @SpellTargetCancel to characters). This
  is called when a player cancels targeting with a spell.
    ARGN1 = the spell that was being cast
    ARGO  = the item used to cast the spell (e.g. a wand or scroll)
    RETURN 1 = suppress the cancellation message
- Added: @Wait trigger to skills (and @SkillWait to characters). This is called whenever
  Sphere wants to check if a character must wait before starting a skill. Normally this
  will be when a skill is selected from the skill menu (before @Select), but also when
  snooping a container or using a musical instrument.
    ARGN1 = the skill the character is attempting
    ARGN2 = the skill that is currently being used
    RETURN 0 = The character can start the other skill (bypasses default checks)
    RETURN 1 = The character must wait (bypasses default checks)
    RETURN 2 = Perform default checks
- Fixed: Return 0 not working in @UseQuick trigger.
- Fixed: @TargOn_Cancel trigger not being fired.

- Modified: Pets default to guarding their master instead of following, and no longer attack
  the same target as their master when in "follow" mode.

17-01-2010, MrSugarCube
- Added: Experimental flag "EF_NetworkOutThread". If this is enabled then outgoing data will
  be sent in a separate background thread.
- Added: UsePacketPriority setting in sphere.ini. Leaving it at 1 (default) should be best
  but if this is set to 0 then [most] packets won't be prioritised.

  by recording and displaying it for each thread.

- Fixed #1760: Players unable to see items in the other player's trade window.

13-06-2010, MrSugarCube
- Added: 'TooltipMode' setting to sphere.ini. When this is set to '1', instead of always
  sending a full tooltip packet for every item, Sphere will send a smaller 'header' packet
  and wait for the client to request the full information (for unchanged tooltips, clients
  can use a local cache and less data will need to be sent).
  Note: Since the header packet requires knowledge of what the tooltip will contain,
  @ClientTooltip should be expected to fire twice in this mode (once for the header, once
  for the full data). ARGN1 can be used to determine if the client asked for the tooltip,
  but it is important that you do not use it to change the tooltip content.
- Added: Support for caching tooltip data for characters and items. Whilst a tooltip is
  cached, @ClientTooltip won't be fired. A new 'TooltipCache' setting is provided in
  sphere.ini to control how long a cached tooltip will be valid for (set to 0 to disable
  caching). If the new tooltip mode is being used then enabling this would be advisable
  to avoid having @ClientTooltip fired twice for each client.
- Modified: RESENDTOOLTIP now accepts parameters to control how the tooltip should be
  The syntax is now: "RESENDTOOLTIP [sendfull=0,usecache=0]"
   'sendfull' - 1 to force the full tooltip to be sent, or 0 to send just the header (when
                TooltipMode=1, otherwise the full data will be sent anyway)
   'usecache' = 1 to use cached tooltip if available, or 0 to clear the cache and force
                @ClientTooltip to fire

02-07-2010, MrSugarCube
- Fixed: Possible exception on Linux builds when an NPC moves.

03-07-2010, MrSugarCube

  containers) must now be activated using the EF_FixCanSeeInClosedConts experimental flags,
  since it has been reported to cause client crashes.

28-07-2010, MrSugarCube
- Added #1776: P.COMPONENTS to access multi components at a location in the same way as with
  P.STATICS. Usage is identical to P.STATICS, except that the COLOR property does not exist
  for multi components. P.COMPONENTS.n.MULTI can be used as a reference to the multi that
  contains the nth component at a location.

06-08-2010, ShiryuX
- Added #1790: TAG.NOTO.PERMAGREY which sets the player's notoriety to neutral/grey.

  This way you can call: "SERV.ACCOUNT foobar MD5PASSWORD f4d9ff51c527e8ef67d924d4f0a6db66"
- Fixed #1799: Accounts created using ADDMD5 won't cut the hash anymore.
- Fixed: Dialog properties xmfhtmlgump and xmfhtmlgumpcolor not working correctly with dorigin. 

19-08-2010, ShiryuX
- Modified #1786: Disabled 'r' console command to be used by remote telnet, use 'resync' instead. 
  Any other way to access the console (physical or remote desktop) can still use it.

21-08-2010, ShiryuX
- Added: Basic support for bard spellbook and skill (the actual spell effects need to be scripted).
- Modified #1800: @UserWarMode will now have ARGN2 parameter, which by default is 1.

- Added: Support for packet changes found in client
- Added: Support for new tiledata.mul and multi.mul formats found with client
  Since the tiledata size has increased again (supporting a maximum slot of 0FFFF),

  syntax then everything should work without any change to scripts.

  This works for the male_default, female_default, and all the skills defined in Newbie sections.
- Added #1598: All max* stat values (Hits, stam, mana, food) can be _safely_ set up to 1 million.

12-12-2010, MrSugarCube
- Added #1865: ARROWQUEST function now accepts a third parameter to specify the arrow's id
  (defaults to 0). This can be used to display more than one arrow at once on newer clients,
  but bear in mind that older clients can still only show one arrow at a time and so the id
  will effectively be ignored in their case.
  If an id has been specified when showing the arrow, then you will also need to specify it
  again when you want to remove it ("ARROWQUEST" with no arguments will only remove the arrow
  with id 0).
    ARROWQUEST 1000,1000,0 // show an arrow pointing to 1000,1000, id=0
    ARROWQUEST 1020,1000,1 // show an arrow pointing to 1020,1000, id=1
    ARROWQUEST 1000,1020,2 // show an arrow pointing to 1000,1020, id=2
    ARROWQUEST 0,0,1       // remove the arrow pointing to 1020,1000

  change on items or characters, via new AUTOTOOLTIPRESEND setting. See Sphere.ini for
  available flags that can be used to control which properties are monitored. Note that some
  scripts won't trigger the tooltips to resend (for example the 0008 flag won't detect a script
  that sets MORE1 on armour, so a manual RESENDTOOLTIP would still be needed).
- Fixed: Possible delay between sending packets required to display buy/sell menus.

09-01-2011, ShiryuX
- Added #1881: TAT_AS_FULL trigger type to TRIGGER function to set ARGO, ARGN and ARGS.
  Example: TRIGGER @MyTest,,01,100,200,300,here,start,my,args
           will call @MyTest with ARGO.UID=01, ARGN1=100, ARGN2=200, ARGN3=300

  before it is placed in a container (e.g. when the item amount changes during stacking).

10-01-2011, MrSugarCube
- Added #1872: Support for setting SPEEDMODE to 4, as handled by newer clients. This can be
  used to prevent a player from moving. Movement checks have been adjusted accordingly so
  whilst older clients won't understand this speed mode, Sphere will still block their
  movement attempts (with a slight 'rubber banding' effect as you'd normally get when freezing
  a player by other means).

11-01-2011, MrSugarCube
