as I read it, FF's change won't prevent NPC spawn spam ... but I might be reading it wrong.

Eu amei a ideia! Estava comentando justamente isso com Leyenda, que você poderia colocá-los permanentemente no jogo, acho muito frustrante eles sumirem depois de um determinado tempo, amei a ideia e vou amar se der certo! É oque faltava para os NPC’s. ❤️✨ se der para excluí-los caso coloquemos no lugar errado seria ótimo. 👏🏻

Then it is not necessary to place a photon button, if they only activate with only the summoning stickers I think it's great. I was thinking that you should do the same with the creatures as well so that they are there when we look at it like this it will be a thousand times better

And speaking of the creatures, wouldn't it be great if they acted like the npcs instead of always being there?

@Ruan4K: thanks for the triple spam, shame on you! :D

@Hummm: it prevents NPC spam because you can't (don't have to) press buttons multiple times anymore. You place the photon imitator and the NPC just always *is* there, without duplication.

@YokoOno: while building and placing NPCs you can "remove" them by just adding lots of 'em. Only the 4 most recent NPCs survive. Or you can use the "photon faucet" block below ground to remove them.

@Leyenda: for now I only want to make NPCs auto-spawn. Changing creatures is a bit harder and it would really mess with existing builds and expectations.

@obi-, all: just brainstorming… Maybe I *can* add a toggle for disabling auto-spawn. You would start the NPC name with '#' (like the holo scroll quick message thing) and the game wouldn't auto-spawn that NPC. The # would be hidden as well. Does that sound good?

Also, paging @Rob12: can you chime in with a short comment on this change? Last I've heard you added lots of NPCs to your builds and i don't want to upset you without you knowing about it! (No more KJs for me.)

Yeah that sounds great. Would be sick.

Question: Would imitator creatures also auto-spawn on load? Or just the NPCs? Would be nice to see people add random animals around (like I did with the ravens in the Streaming city, without having a conduit mess in the sky)

Maybe it could be controlled by adding a # before the ID in the first prompt the imitator gives you, so you'd have a choice to spawn the creature or not.

(I don't actually expect this to be added, just asking.)

Be able to have NPCs auto spawning and adding the option to prevent the NPCs you place from auto spawnning by just adding a # at the NPC's name is GREAT !!

You have my complete support !!

Do it, but I probably wont be happy with MY OWN NPC's now, as most of them wouldn't need the wiring anymore and could now be tidied up a bit. Others I would have to redo the characters to add a # to their names.

I can't be bothered doing it now, so whenever.

Maybe it should be the other way around: #name to auto-spawn, no # to not auto-spawn.
