About This File


There is a nice contribution from meko on that subject,

Menhir (Big rock that possesses magical powers and able to restore Health and Energy of Seekers resting/meditating nearby)

Thanks, meko!

But, I thought to myself, well, that is wonderful, but why not make it portable?

The Idea:

An element of role play, a way to add functionality 
to the item 7035 - Matchstick, To light a Campfire.
A Campfire is a portable temporary regeneration NPC.
OW, and it is configurable ;).


Campfire to restore / regenerate HP & SP.

When you sit by the Campfire, you start feeling the warmth and the comfort, thus your HP & SP begin to regenerate.




A phosphorus tipped stick that can be used to start a fire. (Now Indeed :meh:)

When you use the itemfbrrRyO.gif Matchstick in your inventory, it will spawn a duplicate of the NPC called Campfire.

This will help you when you are in the field, farming, grinding, starting a Campfire will help you rest.


- You need to sit close to the Campfire (3 cells ) to feel the warmth.

- Anyone can sit by your Campfire and rest.

- Campfire lasts 2-3 minutes.

- Need to sit for at least some time to begin feeling the warmth and comfort.

- you cannot start a fire within 5 cells of another NPC

- If you use a match one more time, old Campfire disappears and a new one appears.


I think it will add an element of roleplay and romanticism to the gameplay.




  1. To be able to use this script you need a plugin npc-duplicate.c
    Install & enable this plugin
  2. This script uses a relatively new NPC sprite at the moment of writing this release.
    Therefore, you may have to edit the Hercules source to allow for this new NPC
    To the /db/constants.conf
    add this line:
    4_BONFIRE: 10252
    In the /src/map/npc.h
    change this line:
    #define MAX_NPC_CLASS2_END 10800
    This will allow for way more NPCs
    Save and recompile Hercules.
  3. In the client, you may not have this NPC
    But luckily for you, I've included with this release a data.zip archive containing the NPC sprite
    and the sound of striking a matchstick.
    Just add it to your GRF or data folder if you use data folder.
  4. In the client, Lua Files make sure you have this NPC sprite

    LuaFiles514/Lua Files/Datainfo/NPCIdentity.lub
    JT_4_BONFIRE = 10252,

    LuaFiles514/Lua Files/Datainfo/jobName.lub
    [jobtbl.JT_4_BONFIRE] = "4_bonfire",
  5. In the /db/re/item_db.conf or /db/pre-re/item_db.conf
    find Id: 7035
    and add these 3 attributes
    	Type: 2
    	Delay: 3000
    	Script: <" callfunc("F_CreateCFDup"); ">



It is a configurable script

All of the parameters are explicitly commented for a better understanding of the rules

	.refillHP_rate = 15;	// number of HP to give every refill
	.refillSP_rate = 5;		// number of SP to give every refill
	.refill_distance = 3;	// max distance from fire HP/SP regeneration will work
	.camp_fire_delay = 5;	// Skip how many ticks before feel warm ;)
	.refill_timer = 300;	// wait rand(X) ms before refil

Feel free to adjust to your server needs

	.@nofire_distance = 5;			// How far from other NPCs allowed to make fire.
	.@fire_duration = 1000 * 60 * 3;// 3 minutes (How long will the Campfire last, in ms)
