Title: *strange shadow* is here under a table.
Post by: ScramblesForPurchase on November 08, 2019, 12:25:19 PM
I cannot find a thread where this has been mentioned before.. though I felt like it must've been.. But wouldn't it be great if you could set a 'hidden' ldesc? Is this just not a codedly possible thing?

It would be neat, but I think if all you can discern is "a strange shadow", you don't really know its full ldesc.

Though it would be nice that if you caught the shadow, and are watching them, that they aren't a shadow anymore, or you can see the ldesc.

Yeah, an ldesc like that wouldn't make sense with the current code where you can sometimes see a glimpse of a shadow and sometimes can't. Because if I KNOW you're under the table, it makes zero sense for me to subsequently be unable to "look shadow". The current situation only makes sense when it is assumed that someone is "actively" avoiding detection, moving from place to place, which is better achieved through using hemotes.
