Badly documented/unknown commands?

Post by Alteor » 05 Dec 2017 23:16

So... while messing around with my Gelan hair, I found out "double" exists.

Awesome command!

Also I only learned "Track" exists after seeing another player use it.

"v mail" is a command I learned when someone nemntioned it on discord.

"buy tickets for team" another one that I took a while to learn, and I rarely see newbies using it.


So... any other commands I should know? And why "double" is not on "help topics" in first place?

Can't say I really remember but I would look up quest commands for both fixes and streamlining new commands.

I had to check what the 'double' command was. Then I remembered it :)

I knew about it .. but I think it only works IF you have your eyes washed in Gelan? (or maybe I'm wrong)
If something I wrote sounds confusing ... assume you misunderstood it.

The issue here is that supposedly deleted emotes like "grope" still work if you use them inside a double.
You see a mousetrap. I see free cheese and a challenge.

maybe add double to <help topics>, add buy tickets for team to <help team>. <help track> already exists. So does <help double> --- but add it to <help topics>! I've read thru all all the files on the list but must have learned <double> in Gelan, although I never tried it until I learned I could use it to grope. Guessing that won't be possible for much longer.


and speaking of help files (total side note, sorry), maybe a <help glow> or something. Some days it feels like 90% of ntell is "why do I lose stuff when I quit" / "how can I make my gear save" / etc. Glowing items are covered in <help armageddon> but it's not clear that the same rules apply when you quit.

I've been using double quite a bit recently. Also, some emotes are specifically edited as they pass through double (see <dance> and <sing>).

Oh, and you CAN use adverbs as well. There is a natural alias for double, which is "2".
