Come on ppl..if you're really enjoying sitting around spamming search, then don't reply.

Also, I'd like to add: Please fix flee as well. when you are in n/s/e/w/u/d exits and fail 6x..that's stupid too :(

I know. That's why I posted it. This is actually a copy/paste from the first time I posted this, back in November of 2002. Since then, I've seen about 2 dozen new search threads get started.

We know it's hard to find things with search. Everybody knows. It's been posted to death.

The only thing that makes me mad is that no admin ever replies so it just seems we're ignored 8(

Hehe, I'm not sure which is funnier, Shev/oghma or my misunderstanding Tod's post :) *sorry Tod - I was too stupid to figure it out first time around 8)*

The only thing that's so bad about search is when it repops, you're trying to head back and have a tracker on yer bum..failing search sux

I just want to repost the best fix i have read while playing

Search in directions.

Just search down would act as if i typed 6 searches. It would only succede if there is a hidden entry down, not if there is a hidden item in the room etc.

Most of the posts always comes from players that know a room contains a secret door in a direction they also know.

I totally agree.
It will be fixed in Toril 2.0.

Search in directions was implemented back in 2003 where I did the last post. It just never made it to the help files.
