Nazrix and dwarfsoft, what about my previous post ?
Which system do you prefer ?
Personally I would go with a TODO list which points out the bare minimum that should be done by the NPC (therefore eliminating any slackers! [like me ]) and then I would put a schdule layer over it. That way the tasks are updated, but there is always a skeleton to fall back on. The TODO would also allow optimisations for NPC''s that aren''t likely to be seen much, they don''t require a high priority Schedule layer.
This is a fairly basic look at a complicated system, but I think the systems that you pointed out are all good, but for different reasons and different purposes.
Maybe we should work on creating a system that will work generically so that it can be of benefit to others. I believe we have the brains here in this forum so benefiting ourselves as well as others might be a way to go.
