IWD: TotL Script Actions
0 NoAction() Variants: [BG1/IWD1/IWD2/PST] [BG2/BGEE]

This action can be used to do nothing - many characters walk around randomly or stand in one place doing nothing:

IF
  True()
THEN
  RESPONSE #50
    RandomWalk()
  RESPONSE #50
    NoAction()
END

This command also sets a creatures ModalState to 0, and so can be used to stop other modal actions (e.g. Bard Song).

IF
  ModalState(BATTLESONG)
THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    NoAction()
END

NoAction() is also commonly used as a hanging action in targeting blocks. This is a matter of good practice rather than necessary. The NoAction() action will never be rum since the block always returns false, but the having an action in the scripting block allows scripting programs to accurately check for errors.

IF
  See(NearestEnemyOf(Myself))
  False()
THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    NoAction()
END

This action can be used to control another creature. A creature referenced as the result of SetTokenObject() is not a valid target for the ActionOverride() action. The following is from the Irenicus cutscene after leaving his abode in chapter 1.

This action is used to set waypoints for a creature to move between; it is commonly used from area scripts to script barmaids moving in a route around the bar. The point parameter represents the X and Y coordinates of the waypoint to add.

IF
  Global("KRNEWWAY","GLOBAL",0)
THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    SetGlobal("KRNEWWAY","GLOBAL",1)
    AddWayPoint([100.200])
    AddWayPoint([200.300])
END

The following script, showing how to move to waypoints preset in the area file, is taken from the barmaid at the Copper Coronet.

IF
  Detect([PC])

  Global("quest1","LOCALS",0)

This action instructs the active creature to continually attack the target, i.e. the active creature will not switch targets until its target is dead.

IF
  See([EVILCUTOFF])
  Class(LastSeenBy(),MAGE_ALL)
  !InParty(LastSeenBy())
THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    Attack(LastSeenBy())
END

This action instructs the active creature to backstab the specified target. Note that some creatures (notably dragons and golems) are immune to being backstabbed, that not all weapons are valid to backstab with, and that the active creature must be hidden to make a successful backstab. This action causes the game to crash. As long as the correct conditions are met, the first attack of a hidden creature will count as a backstab attack.

THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    Attack(NearestEnemyOf())
END

This action is used to create a creature - either an NPC, a neutral creature or an enemy. NewObject is the filename of the creature to create, Location is the coordinates to create the creature at ([x.y] format) and direction being the direction the creature is facing (0-15, 0 being south and the facing values increasing as the character turns clockwise). Note that a coordinate of [-1.-1] will create the creature next to the active creature.

This script is from the area script for the Copper Coronet (AR0406) and creates extra guards when the Player is discovered in the off limits area.

IF
  Global("CopperGuards","GLOBAL",1)
THEN
  RESPONSE #100

See Dialogue.

This action instructs the active creature to initiate dialog with the target creature. Dialog will not be initiated if the creature using this action has been assigned a dialog that has all top level conditions returning false.

IF

  Global("FLOODED","GLOBAL",0)
THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    Dialogue([PC])

This action instructs the active creature to drop the specified item at the specified location (relative to the active creature). The active creature must have the item to be dropped. Note that a coordinate of [-1.-1] will drop the item next to the active creature.

IF
  Clicked([ANYONE])
  Range(LastTrigger,12)
THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    DropItem("SCRL1B",[345.1210])
END

This action is used to change the allegiance of the active creature to enemy (making them hostile to the PC). This example script, from a peasant, will turn the creature hostile if it is attacked.

IF
  AttackedBy([GOODCUTOFF],Myself)
  Allegiance(Myself,NEUTRAL)
THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    Enemy()

THEN
  RESPONSE #100
    Equip("Sw1h01",Myself)
END

This action instructs the active creature to enter Detect Traps modal state. This action can be used for any creature (not just thieves) though success in detecting traps is dependent on points in the Find Traps skill.

END

This action instructs the active creature to give the specified item (parameter 1) to the specified target (parameter 2). The active creature must possess the item to pass it. The sample script makes uses of modified IDS files (action, instant, trigger and svtiobj) though such modification are not necessary to use the GiveItem action itself.

IF
  HPPercentLT(Myself,40)
  !HasItem("potn52",Myself)

END

This action is used in conjunction with the ReceivedOrder trigger, and works in a similar way to a global shout. The action passes a numeric order to the specified creature. Only one creature at a time responds to an order, and creatures to not detect their own orders.

END

This action instructs the active creature to attempt to Hide in Shadows. This action can be used for any creature (not just thieves) though success in hiding is dependent on points in the Stealth skill. A hidden creature is treated as STATE_INVISIBLE.

IF

This action adds the active creature to the party. If the party is currently full the ‘select party members’ dialog is shown. JoinParty clears the ActionQueue of the active creature.

IF
  See([PC])
  Global("KRJOINPARTY","GLOBAL",0)

This action instructs the active creature to attempt to pickpocket the target. This action can be used for any creature (not just thieves) though success in pick pocketing is dependent on points in the Pickpocket skill. Note that a failed pickpocket attempt is treated as an attack, hence the Attacked() trigger will return true if a pickpocket attempt is failed.

This action turns any undead creatures within range of the active creature. This action can be used for any creature (not just paladins/clerics) though success in turning is dependent on the Turn Undead level of the creature, which is only calculated for paladins and clerics. The chance to successfully turn undead is based on creatures level and class. Paladins turn at 2 levels less than clerics of the same level. An undead creature will be destroyed/controlled if its level is more than 7 levels below the active creatures turn undead level. An undead creature may be turned (i.e. forced to flee) is its level is equal to, or up to 4 levels below, the active creatures turn undead level.

This action instructs the script parser to continue looking for actions in the active creatures action list. This is mainly included in scripts for efficiency. Continue should also be appended to any script blocks added to the top of existing scripts, to ensure correct functioning of any blocks which include the OnCreation trigger. Continue may prevent actions being completed until the script parser has finished its execution cycle. Continue() must be the last command in an action list to function correctly.

This action, in its first form, instructs the active creature to leave the current area, either by walking, or, if the path is blocked, by simply disappearing.
