The current script I am working on is related to an earlier script I did for j7 when we first were spawning his fantastic Sith Stalker skin. We had fun making a baby mini-mod out of it, with some basic cinematics.

The gist - this script will make folks "appear from nowhere" just uncloaking in your face... and I mean IN YOUR FACE, as they will attack you immediately.

The script will not do it all alone - your NPC would need to be spawned in however you chose and given the effect of invisibility (real easy, just add in EffectInvisibility(oYourNPC) to the spawn script), and then s/he or they (plural FTW ) would need a custom OnSpawn script allowing for perception to be opened. It is a simple cut&paste of the script k_def_spawn but with the "//" removed in front of the line for OnPerception events. Finally my handy script goes into the OnPerception slot of your .utc.

I post this script, for two reasons. One, I know it works and can be used to do several different jobs with just minor alteration. Two, I hope that someone that has used TimBob12's Populate Function will go ahead and use this custom UserDefined script for a .utc of your choice and populate the hell out of 'em. Then go ahead and warp into that area and it's a total free-for-all, but enemies will only appear as you near them.

The obvious test room would be the Rakatan Prison module.... Combining the two makes stealthy angry Mandalorians or Sith A.... Sneaky sith people appear wherever you go!
