when someone stays idle for too long (even when paused), the character should fall asleep.

=) That'd rock and a good way to get rid of idlers...err how about when they stand near a bomy too long, they die from the ugliness? oOooooooOOo ;)

I can do that.

Edit idle.gani...put a huge delay in it, and if the player doesn't reset the gani every 10 seconds or so, the player does something...I dunno, pulls out a book and flips through it, plays with a yoyo, or just starts wobbling back and forth with the "grabbing" head on and the Z Emoticon by their head...^_^

Make some hammocks or something that you can sleep in or a sleeping room ;) That would rock...

heh, kinda like in RPGs when you don't move your character for a while they start do do something.

Thym suggested good ones, but I say you pull out your sword and start swingin' it =P

Bomies could sleep, humans could tap their foot.

It's TYHM! Sheesh, give him some respect :P

the only problem is, that i dunno how to make it change the gani when ever they stay still to long. could someone fill in the blank for me?

if ( ___ ){
setcharani sleeping,;
}

In whatever you people use for timeout loops now:
if(strequals(#m,idle)) this.idle++;
else this.idle=0;
if(this.idle>60){
setcharani bored,;
}

I used a code similar to that one for an offline unstick me NPC ^^.
