Ticket #1568 (new change)
Policy on alloc_prob == 0
|Reported by:||magnate||Owned by:|
At the moment there are a lot of items in object.txt with alloc prob 0, mostly there for V savefile compat. My suggestion is that they are removed altogether in v4, and we use alloc_prob of zero as a test for the INSTA_ART kinds created by add_kind(). This would then allow us to remove the INSTA_ART flag.
If there are other reasons for having objects with alloc_prob 0 (once #1565 is fixed, of course), this won't work. This ticket is a place for people to air any thoughts on the matter.
