Concepts

URGE WRIT is a CAOS command which urges a creature to perform (or avoid) a certain action on a certain object.

Usage[edit]

The syntax for URGE WRIT is as follows:

URGE WRIT [CREATURE] [NOUN_ID] [NOUN_STIM] [VERB_ID] [VERB_STIM]

In which [CREATURE] is a creature agent such as targ or a variable containing the desired creature, [ID]s are integers assigned to the corresponding noun/verb, and [STIM]s are a float value generally between -1 and 1, defining the strength of the suggestion. Any stimulus strength greater than 1 forces the creature's attention onto the verb and/or noun defined, effectively controlling the creature's mind.

Additionally, a value of -1 can be used in place of the noun or verb IDs to 'reset' the creature's attention to a neutral state.

The effects of this command are temporary and only last until the creature is distracted by something else.
