    I'm continuing to use Mercenary Mood and I find myself wishing that it were a bit more aggressive in handling ML.

Low-skill characters can really run into problems running high ML so this is the desired behavior, I think.

    Not sure what happened to you in Oil Peak. The +ML goal there is explicitly 100.

    Also the Spirit of ... stuff is calculated based on the monsters in the zone, but the Spirit skills may also be being cast as part of MM's general buff maintenance since it's trying to operate generically, without a bunch of hardcoded names. So for now I've deliberately excluded the Spirit of... skills from generic consideration. And regardless, MM does need to use Peppermint when you're hunting for bridge materials, so I've also hardcoded some names there which ought to solve that. r19.

    Thank you for the information on ML. Your changes to "Spirit of..." worked as expected when I went built a bridge today.

    While adventuring in the Billiards room, to play pool and get the key, in a TCRS run, MM will use hand chalk even when it gives an effect that does not effect the pool skill :-)

    I haven't ventured into TCRS yet. Does $effect[chalky hand].default update accordingly in TCRS? Or would there be an easier way to figure out which item, if any, gives the desired effect?

    use 1 Flaskfull of Hollow
    which seems to be correct for a TCRS Possum Clubber.
    Well, thank you.

    MM handles a few more effects that need to be untied from hard-coded items (I think): Musky when clearing protesters and Stone-Faced for the Hidden Temple.

    So I've just added some item/skill-agnostic code locally for acquiring an effect to MM which ought to be relatively future-proof; or at least TCRS-proof. It sorts the options available in $effect[].all by cost and performs the cheapest one that's under 10,000μ. I'll make sure it works (couldn't test it today) and then upload the change for my TCRS-playing friends.

    I've noticed the MM is, inappropriately, increasing ML in some circumstances. Here's one:

    Character is already level 13, flyer use is complete, and while fighting Ed the ML was increased to +74 ML

    MM very much wants to buy a detuned radio and fails, often trying on every adventure. Perhaps MM could be made to understand that it can always get what it wants and it should not try to get what it needs?

    No real harm - just server hits and gCLI spam.

    One of the benefits of (we miss you) Bale's NewLife is it would set choice adventures. I believe that MM is now setting choice adventures. Would it be reasonable to deprecate NewLife in my own script ecosystem and just relay on MM for choices?

    If so, would it be helpful to clear all choices to the mafia defaults and watch for cases where MM doesn't seem to pick the right one?

    In Kingdom of Exploathing there are no MCD adjustments possible.
