That's something similar to what I asked in another post. Excellent idea.

I would like the option for repelProjectiles to be applicable to alcoves optionally for alcoves that take up part of the floor.
This way, objects thrown at the alcove don't become hidden by the alcove model.

Probably already asked dozen of times...

setMonsterStat (index, value)
getMonsterStat(index)

Allow to get/set any useful monster property. (provide an indexed list of interesting properties)

Hmmm...
>> setMonsterStat ("perturbed", true)
>> setMonsterStat ("merchant", true)
>> setMonsterStat ("blinded", true)
>> setMonsterStat ("party_ally", true)

This could have a lot of potential if there was support for altering the default AI actions; (like setting destination tiles and attack target IDs ~even giveItem()/takeItem() methods). 8-)

>> green_Ogre:setMonsterStat ("party_ally", true)
>> green_Ogre:giveItem("magic_anvil_of_Crom")
>> follow = {party.level, party.x, party.y}
>> green_Ogre:setMonsterStat ("destination", follow)

Good ideas. Being able to set the target destination of a monster would increase the customization of their AI tenfold.

I would *really* like to make a new patch but unfortunately I'm still too busy with the mac version and another secret project I can't talk about yet :)

BUT i'm feeling a bit bored right now so how about if I go get a couple of beers and you tell me the top three new scripting functions I should make right now for the next version. I should have 2-3 hours before the missus comes home...the clock is ticking.... :)

Going to get some beer, back in 15 mins.

For me it would be:
- a way to set the target of a monster (party, item, monster, place...)
- a way to read/write all the characteristics of a monster (like health, evasion, etc.)
- anchorPos, anchorRotation, targetPos, targetSize and onInsertItem for Altars.
