While on the subject of hide, i just have a few questions about seeing hid
Now on the help file for hide, it sort of implies that you can see
hidden if you have enough per, which makes sense, if i have good
vision i should be able to see more than a person with low perception
With that in mind, why the hell cant i see hidden, or sneak for that
matter? When i finally got 100 per i asked around for people to
hide and sneak and see if i could see them, obviously i couldnt.
If come to find out that the help files are wrong, i am still of the
opinion that people with high per should be able to see hidden, like
and mage can do easily. I would appreciate any imm or experienced
player writing and telling me what, if anything, i am doing wrong.

I've never had any problems seeing someone sneak with 100 perc,
hide os different, and the help file does imply that you can with
high perc. ;)

Well unless they changed it (which seems almost everything
gets that attention nowadays) a char with high
perc could see hidden creatures, a good example or test
is to walk around agrabah, lottsa mobs hide there.

mobs that are hidden have (hide) on them, despite what their
long description may say. high perc is also talked as if it can see invis,
but that obviously isn't the case either.

my 100/90 perc people can -usually- see sneaking, not always, but almost.
They can see hidden exits. However, they cannot flee from rooms with only
hidden exits. -poke barney- which imho, is rather silly.
They cannot scan through hidden exits which their perc lets them see.
Again that seems rather strange.
They cannot under any circumstances I've come across ever detect hidden.
I've never managed to catch sight of a camo'd skatha with 100 perc.
It would be nice if 90+ perc gave det hidden.
Also, it'd be nice if dex/perc could increase the success rate on skills
such as pick lock and sneak.
Also if perc figured in tumble. =)
Just my two cents.

I don't think you should automatically see hidden but give you
more of a chance to uncover hidden mobs or players with a
'search' command. It wouldn't give you detect hidden but
would unhide whoever's found in the room.
