Scry Making Player NPCs

Post by Myles Magnus » Mon May 03, 2021 6:44 pm

Description
==========

Steps to reproduce
----------------------------
1. Scry an individual
2. Log out while scrying

Expected result
-----------------------
Character logs out as normal

Actual result
-------------------
Character remains on the server as an NPC. Does not vanish upon logging back in.

Screenshot(s)
--------------------

Notes
---------
Intentionally done twice for testing. This is fun but probably illegal. Also the CnP server crashed about 10 minutes after this. Unknow if there is a correlation.

i mean the solution is probably to not log out while scrying

This does explain the weird pseudo-NPCs I keep finding.

Shame you cant control them... having an army of controllable clones with all the power of the original would definitely have its uses lol.

I feel like the same issue may arise if you crash while scrying and are DC'd before the scry ends.
