Proc Details

Exited

Checking Exited() to detect if a hat gets up and walks off. Drones and pAIs might do this, after all.

activate_module

Finds the first available slot and attemps to put item item_module in it.

Arguments

activated

Checks if the item is currently in a slot.

If the item is found in a slot, this returns TRUE. Otherwise, it returns FALSE Arguments

add_to_upgrades

Use this to add upgrades to robots. It'll register signals for when the upgrade is moved or deleted, if not single use.

break_all_cyborg_slots

Breaks all of a cyborg's slots.

break_cyborg_slot

Breaks the slot number, changing the icon.

Arguments

cycle_modules

deploy_init

deploy_init: Deploys AI unit into AI shell

Arguments:

deselect_module

Deselects the module in the slot module_num. Arguments

equip_module_to_slot

What's the first free slot for the borg? Is passed an item and a module slot. Equips the item to that borg slot.

Arguments

get_active_held_item

Returns the thing in our active hand (whatever is in our active module-slot, in this case)

get_selected_module

The number of module slots we're checking Returns the slot number of the selected module, or zero if no modules are selected.

is_invalid_module_number

Checks if the provided module number is a valid number.

If the number is between 1 and 3 (if check_all_slots is true) or between 1 and the number of disabled modules (if check_all_slots is false), then it returns FALSE. Otherwise, it returns TRUE. Arguments

logevent

Records an IC event log entry in the cyborg's internal tablet.

Creates an entry in the borglog list of the cyborg's internal tablet, listing the current in-game time followed by the message given. These logs can be seen by the cyborg in their BorgUI tablet app. By design, logging fails if the cyborg is dead.

Arguments: arg1: a string containing the message to log.

make_shell

make_shell: Makes an AI shell out of a cyborg unit

Arguments:

observer_screen_update

Updates the observers's screens with cyborg itemss. Arguments

on_light_eater

Special handling for getting hit with a light eater

on_upgrade_deleted

Called when an applied upgrade is deleted.

remove_from_upgrades

Called when an upgrade is moved outside the robot. So don't call this directly, use forceMove etc.

repair_all_cyborg_slots

Repairs all slots. Unbroken slots are unaffected.

repair_cyborg_slot

Repairs the slot number, updating the icon.

Arguments

revert_shell

revert_shell: Reverts AI shell back into a normal cyborg unit

select_module

Selects the module in the slot module_num. Arguments

set_lockcharge

Reports the event of the change in value of the lockcharge variable.

setup_default_name

Used to setup the a basic and (somewhat) unique name for the robot.

smash_headlamp

Handles headlamp smashing

When called (such as by the shadowperson lighteater's attack), this proc will break the borg's headlamp and then call toggle_headlamp to disable the light. It also plays a sound effect of glass breaking, and tells the borg what happened to its chat. Broken lights can be repaired by using a flashlight on the borg.

toggle_headlamp

Handles headlamp toggling, disabling, and color setting.

The initial if statment is a bit long, but the gist of it is that should the lamp be on AND the update_color arg be true, we should simply change the color of the lamp but not disable it. Otherwise, should the turn_off arg be true, the lamp already be enabled, any of the normal reasons the lamp would turn off happen, or the update_color arg be passed with the lamp not on, we should set the lamp off. The update_color arg is only ever true when this proc is called from the borg tablet, when the color selection feature is used.

Arguments:

toggle_module

Toggles selection of the module in the slot module_num. Arguments

uneq_active

Unequips the active held item, if there is one.

uneq_all

Unequips all held items.

unequip_module_from_slot

Unequips item item_module from slot module_num. Deletes it if delete_after = TRUE.

Arguments

update_sight

the current percent health of the robot (-1 to 1)

updatename

Updates the borg name taking the client preferences into account.
