Type ftping to ftp.cs.jhu.edu under pub/CircleMUD/submmisions, is rome area, included in this zone (which is a standard zone) is Jedi's defender routine, you can flag your mobiles which you do not want players to back/flee with a !flee command, it is once of the procs included. The procedure goes in fairly well. You will need to make several modifications to the code for it to work correctly. Ours is not 100% correct yet :P however the fleeing portion does work. It is the blocking feature which is inop. But for the most part it is a simple feature, we will be splitting the proc into flags for mobs rather than a special proc, since they are quite nice. Included are purge_pets, !flee, combat_healing, target_by_class (ie who spells will be cast at, not nessisarly the tank), and blocking. Blocking would require x procedures equal to the number of possible directions. But as a whole, it is a very nice section of code, I will post my modifications to it as well as detail instructions for implemntation of the flags and procs, to ftp.cs.jhu.edu in subbmisions, one we have it working completely.
