public Ranger_Track()
Method Detail

ID

public java.lang.String ID()

Returns:
the displayable name of this object instance
See Also:
Environmental.Name()

displayText

public java.lang.String displayText()
Description copied from interface: Environmental

Returns:
the string describing how this object looks in the room

canAffectCode

protected int canAffectCode()
Description copied from class: StdAbility
Designates whether, when used as a property/effect, what sort of objects this ability can affect. Uses the Ability.CAN_* constants.

Overrides:
canAffectCode in class StdAbility
Returns:
a mask showing the type of objects this ability can affect
See Also:
Ability

canTargetCode

protected int canTargetCode()
Description copied from class: StdAbility
Designates whether, when invoked as a skill, what sort of objects this ability can effectively target. Uses the Ability.CAN_* constants.

Overrides:
canTargetCode in class StdAbility
Returns:
a mask showing the type of objects this ability can target
See Also:
Ability

abstractQuality

public int abstractQuality()
Description copied from interface: Ability
Returns a constant value notifying the system of the general quality of the skill, whether it is malicious, beneficial, indifferent, or qualifiably beneficial (ok), as well as whether it is intended to target the invoker (self) or others. These constants are defined in the Ability interface and called QUALITY_*

Specified by:
abstractQuality in interface Ability
Overrides:
abstractQuality in class StdAbility
Returns:
Ability.QUALITY_* constant classification
See Also:
Ability

triggerStrings

public java.lang.String[] triggerStrings()
Description copied from interface: Ability
A set of the command strings the user types to access this command when it is listed as a skill ability.

Specified by:
triggerStrings in interface Ability
Overrides:
triggerStrings in class StdAbility
Returns:
an array of command invoking string words
See Also:
Ability.putInCommandlist()

classificationCode

public int classificationCode()
Description copied from interface: Ability
Returns a bitmap describing the general classification of the skill (spell, skill, chant, or property, etc) and its domain. It is made up of the ACODE_* constants the Ability interface, and optionally the DOMAIN_* constants also defined in this interface.

Specified by:
classificationCode in interface Ability
Overrides:
classificationCode in class StdAbility
Returns:
ACODE_* constant classification
See Also:
Ability

flags

public long flags()
Description copied from interface: Ability
Returns a bitmap giving some specific information about the scope and purpose of the skill. The bitmap is composed of FLAG_* constants from the Ability interface.

Specified by:
flags in interface Ability
Overrides:
flags in class StdAbility
Returns:
FLAG_* constant based bitmap
See Also:
Ability

usageType

public int usageType()
Description copied from interface: Ability
Returns a bitmap made up of constants defined by Ability.USAGE_*. It lets the system know which of the values in the usageCost(MOB,boolean) method are relevant. It determines whether this skill requires mana, movement, hit points, or some combination of the three.

Specified by:
usageType in interface Ability
Overrides:
usageType in class StdAbility
Returns:
a bitmap defined by Ability.USAGE_*
See Also:
Ability

tick

public boolean tick(Tickable ticking,
                    int tickID)
Description copied from interface: Tickable
this is the method which is called periodically by the threading engine. How often it is called depends on the parameters passed to the threadding engine when it is submitted for thread access. Typically the period is once per TIME_TICK period, but that is determined when the object is submitted to the thread engine.

Specified by:
tick in interface Tickable
Overrides:
tick in class StdAbility
Parameters:
ticking - a reference to this Tickable object
tickID - the TICKID_ constant describing this periodic call, as defined in Tickable
Returns:
true always, unless this object no longer wishes to ever tick again, in which case false
See Also:
Tickable, ServiceEngine, TickableGroup

affectPhyStats

public void affectPhyStats(Physical affectedEnv,
                           PhyStats affectableStats)
Description copied from interface: StatsAffecting
This method is called by the recoverPhyStats() method on other Environmental objects. It is used to transform the Environmental basePhyStats() object into a finished phyStats() object, both of which are objects implementing the PhyStats interface. See those methods for more information.

Specified by:
affectPhyStats in interface StatsAffecting
Overrides:
affectPhyStats in class StdAbility
Parameters:
affectedEnv - the host of the PhyStats object being affected
affectableStats - the particular PhyStats object being affected

                       CMMsg msg)
Description copied from interface: MsgListener
The general message event handler for the object. Messages passed herein may not necessarily be FOR this object, or from it, but will almost always represent events happening in the same room. The messages have already been through an approval process, so this method is called only to affect the final execution of the meaning of the message. Every game event goes through these methods.

Specified by:
executeMsg in interface MsgListener
Overrides:
executeMsg in class StdAbility
Parameters:
myHost - either the initiator of the event, or the host of this object
msg - the CMMsg that needs to be executed
See Also:
CMMsg

invoke

                      Physical givenTarget,
                      boolean auto,
                      int asLevel)
Description copied from interface: Ability
This method is called when a player or the system invokes this skill, casts this spell, etc. Calls the more complete invoke method without an empty command strings vector unless target is non-null, in which case the vector will contain the name of the target.

Specified by:
invoke in interface Ability
Overrides:
invoke in class StdAbility
Parameters:
mob - the player or mob invoking the skill
commands - the parameters entered for the skill (minus trigger word)
givenTarget - null, unless being auto-invoked. Represents an override target.
auto - false if player enters command, true if system invokes the command
asLevel - -1, unless being auto-invoked, when it is the level to invoke it at.
Returns:
whether the skill successfully invoked.
