flagstring * time: 0 days * priority: 1
Signal characters waiting with a
wait flag order. The string is
an arbitrary sequence of characters or numbers, but it should match the
flag specified in the
wait flag order.
For example, a character may wait for a particular signal from Osswid :
> wait flag yellow 5499
This will wait for Osswid  to raise a flag saying `
Osswid would issue:
> flag yellow
Which would cause the wait order to complete.
wait flag order defaults to watching for flags from units in
the player's faction. It may also watch for flags from units in another
faction, a flag from a specific unit, or a flag from any unit in the
wait flag yellow # wait for 'flag yellow' from a unit # in our faction wait flag yellow 5499 # wait for 5499 to order 'flag yellow' wait flag yellow 918 # wait for any unit belonging to player # 918 to order 'flag yellow'. wait flag yellow 0 # wait for any unit in the game to give # the yellow flag
Characters do not need to be in the same location to flag.
Flags are remembered for the duration of the month. If a
wait flag is issued for a flag which has already been raised, the wait will
immediately finish (it will take zero time).
However, flags which have been raised are not remembered between turns,
so a flag raised on the 30th of month 5 will not satisfy a
wait flag on the 1st of month 6.
