|Summary||0005545: Orb mimics|
A small set of changes for orb mimics, which were already possible but not placed anywhere. Summary of changes in this patch:
- Rework Zot:5 vaults to have the orb placed at random among Z glyphs, with the other Z locations having a 1/10 chance each of having a mimic. This is a no-op for most vaults (but it allows future vaults with potential mimics to be easier to add), except orb_two_ways now has a 1/10 chance of generating an orb mimic. Since that vault only has a 5/40 = 1/8 chance of generating, and the player has a 1/2 chance of getting the real orb, that's a 1/160 chance of the player running into the mimic before the real orb.
- Name the mimic "orb mimic" rather than "Orb of Zot mimic".
- Upon discovery, the orb mimic shrieks like the orb does on pickup.
- Fix an incorrect indent I discovered in code dealing with apporting the orb.
- Sorry if the lua thing seems a little overengineered. ;)
- The orb chambers all tag ! as no_item_gen, but then subst ! away. I think this makes it fail (it did for me in one test).

Committed to trunk, with the "o" glyph changed to "O" since the former already means something (0.11-a0-1048-g243254a).
There is a general feeling among the devs I spoke to that orb mimics should remain quite rare: 1/80 games, as it is currently, is fine, but 1/2 would not be. I'm not sure how much the 1/80 could be increased without the trick becoming dull.
|Neil: why is this one still open?|
|kilobyte: I was waiting for other devs to comment, then I forgot about it.|
