Please connect abbreviated directions into sneak function.

As title requests...

Code: Select all
Far away, On the Surface of a Roiling River, you see...
Nothing of interest.

Very far away you see...
Nothing of interest.

<****** / ^^^^^^ / |||||| / hidden>
sneak se
Sneak where?

<****** / ^^^^^^ / |||||| / hidden>
se
You begin walking southeastward, with a substituted travel string


It might just be a little thing, but it does get irritating when trying to track something down or if you're chasing something and have to take that extra second to type out southeast or upnorthwest etc meanwhile the thing/person running from you has gotten an extra room away than they normally would if you were just running full bore after them.

it makes sense for someone who's sneaking to be much slower than someone who's not, but I definitely agree with Oblivion here. Having to type out sneak southeast every single time is quite a hassle, and should be changed so you can just do sneak se
A really bad sword with a short blade lies here.
look sword
This sword hardly even a sword. It's kind of really just a piece of metal bent like a sword. Its blade is rather short. Kind of pathetic, really.

which is why you can't sneak at higher than walk

...but yeah, it's obnoxious when the code's broken into inconsistency, and left unfixed. It's boring, and not as exciting as 'war code' or whatever's coming up, but it's good to see the basic functionality of the game returned to what it was.

I've built aliases just for this reason. Was driving me nuts. :mrgreen:
