Eh, bad idea removing a lot of the stock skills I guess. I don't remember this happening last codebase, but anyways... What skills/spells must stay in the MUD in order to run smooth? For example, I removed about all but 15, yet it crashed due to claw being removed.

Does anyone have a list of what skills shouldn't be removed?

Problem with removing things lkike claw, kick, tail, bash etc is that mobs call them in their act flags. For the most part, ANYTHING can be removed if you remove it completely, but you MUST be absolutely certain anything you remove isnt called in an act flag or a spec function because you WILL crash the first time its called after you remove it.

This is the same with alot the the spells as well, certain ones as called as defenses and attacks. The best, but by far the most complicated, it to pick one skill, remove it, and then grep for all calls to it, one at a time. Thourough, and will work, but an incredible amount of work.

Nobody ever expects the spanish inquisition!

Yes I know that certain mob defenses/attacks call it. I want to keep those "progs", so I was just wondering if anyone had a list of skills that are used by mobs things, etc.

If you can post us your mob act flags and spec functions and I can probly tell you offhand which skills are called - tail, bash, claw, bite are the ones that jump to mind.... maybe circle and backstab as well depending on you having an assassin spec.

So far these are the skills I have left in.

Though I'm not sure if I kept all the ones needed. I've found skills needed in function affect_modify from handler.c & the attack_flags/defense_flags in mud.h. Are there any other places I'm missing? Right now the MUD isn't crashing, but I don't want to have any suprises in the future since I'm not open to the public yet.
