Returns:
Ability.QUALITY_* constant classification
See Also:
Ability

canAffectCode

protected int canAffectCode()

Designates whether, when used as a property/effect, what sort of objects this ability can affect. Uses the Ability.CAN_* constants.

Overrides:

Returns:
a mask showing the type of objects this ability can affect

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:

Returns:
a mask showing the type of objects this ability can target
See Also:
Ability

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 ThiefSkill
Returns:
ACODE_* constant classification
See Also:

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()

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

abilityCode

public int abilityCode()
Description copied from interface: Ability
Returns an optional numeric value whose purpose is entirely contextual. For many skills, this reflects some sort of enhancement. Default is 0.

Specified by:
abilityCode in interface Ability
Overrides:
abilityCode in class StdAbility
Returns:
the current optional numeric value or enhancement

setAbilityCode

public void setAbilityCode(int newCode)
Description copied from interface: Ability
Sets an optional numeric value whose purpose is entirely contextual. For many skills, this reflects some sort of enhancement. Default is 0.

Specified by:
setAbilityCode in interface Ability
Overrides:
setAbilityCode in class StdAbility
Parameters:
newCode - the optional numeric value or enhancement

affectPhyStats

public void affectPhyStats(Physical affected,
                           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:
affected - the host of the PhyStats object being affected
affectableStats - the particular PhyStats object being affected

okMessage

public boolean okMessage(Environmental myHost,
                         CMMsg msg)
Description copied from interface: MsgListener
The general message event previewer for the object. Messages passed herein are in a pending state, and may be safely modified or rejected without fear that they might be in the middle of being executed. Messages passed herein may not necessarily be FOR or FROM this object, but will almost always represent events which want to happen in the same rom. This method should always always return true UNLESS this message needs to be canceled, in which case it is necessary to tell the mob initiating the event (CMMsg.source()) why it is being cancelled. Every game event goes through these methods.

Specified by:
okMessage in interface MsgListener
Overrides:
okMessage in class StdAbility
Parameters:
myHost - either the initiator of the event, or the host of this object
msg - the CMMsg that wants to be executed
Returns:
whether this message is allowed to execute
See Also:
CMMsg, CMMsg.source()

unInvoke

public void unInvoke()
Description copied from interface: Ability

Specified by:
unInvoke in interface Ability
Overrides:
unInvoke in class StdAbility
See Also:
Ability.canBeUninvoked()

castingQuality

public int castingQuality(MOB mob,
                          Physical target)
Description copied from interface: Ability
Serves a purpose similar to that of the Ability abstractQuality() method, but it determines a more exact quality based on a given invoker, target, and assumes an imminent use of the skill. For this reason, the QUALITY_OK_* constants should be avoided in favor of the other Ability.QUALITY_* constants.

Specified by:
castingQuality in interface Ability
Overrides:
castingQuality in class StdAbility
Parameters:
mob - the person to use the skill
target - the potential target -- may be invoker
Returns:
Ability.QUALITY_* constant classification
See Also:
Ability, Ability.abstractQuality()

invoke

public boolean invoke(MOB mob,
                      java.util.Vector commands,
                      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 ThiefSkill
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.
