    Just had a short look at changeset 69 (http://code.google.com/p/wfto/source/detail?r=69)

    Two notes:
    • Code:
      destBlock = CV_GAME_MANAGER->getRoomManager()->getRoom(CV_BLOCK_TYPE_TREASURE_ROOM_ID, this->getOwner());
      Kinda looks to me like this doesn't search the nearest treasure room cause there's no imp position passed to getRoom.
    • In general I suggest not to hardcode such behavioral stuff.
      If possible, the game code should only provide basic functionality like getRoom and goThere while the rest is done via scripting (Lua et al.)

      This may mean more work in the beginning but will bring home the bacon.
      Not only is this more flexible, it also helps people with less programming background to get involved (no need to setup and compile anything, real scripting languages are more easy to understand and robust, etc.)

      As an extreme example take CorsixTH: http://code.google.com/p/corsix-th/
      The entire game logic is coded with Lua while C++ merely provides basic graphics etc. routines.

    Sorry, That is not us doing that, that is ballwinkle, he continues to use NBKE, even though we have other plans. Says he is going to continue it himself.

    I have an experimental version that finds the closest treasury, but when it's done I'll use it in the other imp functions. The lua is a good idea and I might implant it in a later revision.
