Type definitions are the equivalent of EVENTS that can be attached to items. There are different properties that can be used to attach a type block to an item or set of items:


In addition to handling triggers, type definitions can also be used to define different types of terrain. This can be used to affect the return value of the TYPE property on map points, or for some hardcoded types such as t_rock it can be used to define which terrain IDs Sphere should consider to be rock when the mining skill is used.

Built-in Types

The built-in types are all listed in the sphere_defs.scp file. The table below only lists some of the built-in types and it is VERY weak on actual details...so use with care.

DEFNAME Number Description
t_normal 0 No built-in behavior.
t_container and t_container_locked 1 and 2 These types are used for containers. They leverage the following properties:
  • MORE1 = "ID" from the key that can unlock this item (If the MORE1 of the key matches the MORE1 of the container then they are linked)
  • MORE2 = The lock complexity (how hard it is to pick the lock)
  • MOREX = The trap type (not used yet?)
  • TDATA2 = The gumpID of the container (this is not an ITEMDEF)
  • TDATA3 = The minimum gump size
  • TDATA4 = The maximum gump size
  • LINK = UID of a secondary key?
t_door or t_door_locked 3 or 4 This type is used for both unlocked and locked doors. They leverage the following properties:
  • MORE1 = UID of this door's key (if it has one)
  • TDATA1 = ID for the sound it makes when double clicked
t_key 5 This type is used for keys. It leverages the following properties:
  • MORE1 = "ID" of the item(s) this key can unlock (if the MORE1 of the key matches the MORE1 of the container/door then they are linked)
  • LINK = If this is set to the UID of a "multi" object (like a house) the key can open all doors/containers in that multi?

Note: Keys, containers, and doors are interesting. If both a key and a door/container contain the same arbitrary MORE1 value, the key can be used to lock or unlock the door/container. That action changes the TYPE of the door/container to indicate whether it is locked or not. It also seems like LINK on the key can be set to the UID of a multi so that it can be used to open all doors/containers inside that multi.

t_light_lit 6 This type is used for light sources that can be turned onIT_S or off. It leverages the following properties:
  • MOREY = Number of charges before the item is consumed

Note: The following properties may also exist depending on your server version:

  • MOREY = The strength of the spell effect
t_food_raw 9 This type is used for raw food. It leverages the following properties:
  • MORE1 = ID of the item it makes when cooked (the default is i_unused and if defined, it will override TDATA1)
  • MORE2 = The ID of the creature that this came from
  • MOREM = Is the amount (0 to 127) of "food units" that will be gained when the item is used (eaten)
  • MOREZ = Is the poison level of the food

  • MOREX = The ID of a spell effect that will be gained when eaten

  • TDATA2 = The creature ID type that the food came from

t_armor 10 This type is used for armor. It leverages the following properties:

  • MOREX = Spell effect when worn (for example, setting MOREX=1 causes a permanent Clumsy effect)
  • MOREY = There are two possible effects of setting MOREY:
    1. If MOREX is set, then MOREY is the power/effect of that spell
    2. If the ATTR includes attr_magic, then there is an AR bonus (how is this calculated?)

Note: Old versions of sphere stored remaining charges in MORE2, this is no longer true.

Note: Keys, containers, and doors are interesting. If both a key and a door/container contain the same arbitrary MORE1 value, the key can be used to lock or unlock the door/container. That action changes the TYPE of the door/container to indicate whether it is locked or not. It also seems like LINK on the key can be set to the UID of a multi so that it can be used to open all doors/containers inside that multi.

Note: Keys, containers, and doors are interesting. If both a key and a door/container contain the same arbitrary MORE1 value, the key can be used to lock or unlock the door/container. That action changes the TYPE of the door/container to indicate whether it is locked or not. It also seems like LINK on the key can be set to the UID of a multi so that it can be used to open all doors/containers inside that multi.

t_stone_guild 57 This type is used for guild stones. It leverages the following properties:

  • TDATA2 = Is the ID of the next stage of the crop (or zero if this is the final mature crop which will bear the fruit)
  • TDATA3 = Is the ID of the fruit that this plant will grow and should only be set on the ripe plant (0 means the plant is not mature)

Note This type has unusual TIMER behavior in that regardless of the ATTR flags, the timer will restart when it reaches zero.

t_drink 66 This type is used for non-alcoholic drinks. It leverages the following properties:
  • TATA1 = A flag that indicates whether the container is empty or not.

Note: There is an INI flag OF_DrinkIsFood (0x10000) that, if set, will increase FOOD level when the drink is consumed (like T_FOOD does)

Scripted TYPEDEFs

DEFNAME File Description
t_advance_gate  ??.scp MORE = ID of character to change into

Syntax

The syntax for defining a type is:


[TYPEDEF defname]
TERRAIN=id
TERRAIN=start_id, end_id

ON=trigger_name
    script

ON=trigger_name
    script


Any number of triggers can be handled by one TYPEDEF definition, however it is not possible to handle the same trigger twice without using multiple definitions.


The trigger name can be the name of any item trigger. The return value from the script can affect Sphere's hardcoded behaviour in different ways. See the documentation for the trigger to discover what parameters are passed in to each trigger and what the return values do.


Note: If the defname matches any of Sphere's hardcoded types (see 'typedefs' block in sphere_defs.scp), then the TYPEDEF can be used to override the behaviours of items of that type.


Examples

//
// Water definition from default script pack.
//
[TYPEDEF t_water]
TERRAIN = 0a8	0ab
TERRAIN = 0136	0137
//
// Makes an item speak when double clicked.
//
[TYPEDEF t_exampletype]
ON=@DClick
    SAY I have been double clicked!
    RETURN 2
