Scripting

What is scripting?
Scripting is where a person uses his or her mud client to write a computer-run script that gives him or her an unfair advantage over other players.
Examples of what scripts could do:
a script to salvage every time the lines retract.
A script to shoot the rats as they enter the room.
A script to fire weapons simultaneously with one command.
What is the difference between aliasing and scripting?
An alias might be something like:
sa=shoot alien
This type of alias is legal.
xfire=target 1
la
beam
mis
This type of alias is not legal.
Triggers:
Triggers are, in many ways, little scripts.
There are several types of triggers.
Only two types of triggers are legal here on cosmic Rage, and they are a sound trigger and text trigger. If your trigger is something that receives a piece of text, and plays a sound, or turns the text a different colour or shortens the text, it is legal.
If your trigger does anything else, it is not.
More details on what is and is not legal:
1. If your trigger sends any command back to the game, it is not legal, regardless of what that command is.
2. If your alias runs more than one command, called command stacking, it must comply with the rules for command stacking below.

Command stacking, what is it and is it legal?
Command stacking is when you have your client run more than one command with a single input, be that with an alias or by stringing commands together on one line. Whether it is legal or not depends on what you are doing. The general rule is that if the command stacking gives your character an advantage over npcs or other characters due to the speed of input, it is not legal. Here are some examples.
A command that fires all four energy weapons at once is not legal because it gives your character an advantage in a fight that you would not have if using the commands normally.
A group of commands run all at once to walk into a room and stun a player is not legal because it gives you a serious advantage over the other player, not giving them a chance to escape.
Any command stacking that spams other players is highly illegal. For example, spamming channels whether in a room or global channels will not be tolerated.
If you have many items to add to a shop, an alias to add an item and answer all the prompts is legal because the only advantage you are gaining is less typing.
You have 40 items of pet food in your bag and you want to get 10 of them out and drop them. An alias to do this would be fine because, again, your character is gaining no advantage. You simply are typing less, so it is fine.

The penalties and rewards:
Illegal command stacking is a class 2 offense.
Scripting is a class 3 offense.
The reward for catching a scripter ranges between 1000 and 5000 roleplay points, depending on how much of an offense the scripter was performing.
