Found this in the COS file:
The following info now may be out of date..
The HoverDoc simply refers to the lifeform that can fly around your Norns. All of the medical stuff is in the Creature Care Kit (CCK) which is a seperate agent from the HoverDoc. The CCK simply floats relative to the HoverDoc. This makes it easy to change one of them without breaking the behaviour of the other. The only things that bind them is that occaisionally the HoverDoc will use ALPH to fade out the CCK.
The HoverDoc has two states, either Dormant or Active. The NAME variable "state" to indicate what the HoverDoc currently thinks it is supposed to be.
Might be worth mentioning the CCK and HoverDoc are seperate agents? --Ylukyun 06:25, January 27, 2010 (UTC)
