Notes on the schedule[edit]

Just followed Delmar around all day long, and, just like Borissean, he is another "stiff" - meaning, that he doesn't move at all. Except for one instance; At 2pm he will (again, similary to Borrissean) find his way onto the Mages Guild symbol on the floor and freeze up - and return to the exact same spot if you try to push him away. After 5pm, it's possible to get him off the symbol again. Schedule probably needs some rewording before I can check it. Krusty 08:14, 3 May 2009 (EDT)

I've just looked in the CS, and I can't find anything to explain his 'stiffness'. The AI package that makes him wander is set from 8am until 8pm and has location data set to the Enchanting Centre, whereas Borissean had 'Editor Location'. His reading package, however, does have 'Editor Location', so maybe that could be a problem. Does he actually read between 2pm and 5pm? --SerCenKing Talk 14:50, 4 May 2009 (EDT)
He doesn't do a "return to exact same spot" for me. The reason for his lack of movement is that he is set to go to the cell rather than a point. Most NPCs have "wander x units around this spot" whereas this one is just "go to the cell". But having tested it you can push him around as much as you want. –RpehTCE 15:21, 4 May 2009 (EDT)
Strange. He returned to the spot when I tried to push him away. But nevermind. Could you get him to read between 2pm and 5pm? Krusty 15:40, 4 May 2009 (EDT)
Yup. 2pm on the dot he headed downstairs to the symbol on the floor (to which this time he did return when pushed) and read the Guide to the Imperial City. At 5, he stopped reading and returned to the previous AI package (wouldn't return when pushed). –RpehTCE 16:24, 4 May 2009 (EDT)
Alright, so he wanders around most of the time, then at 2pm he picks a book, stands on the Mages Guild symbol and reads until 5pm. Then he keeps on wandering. Correct? --SerCenKing Talk 05:34, 5 May 2009 (EDT)
I just tried it again, and I still can't get him to do it. In my game, he finds a spot on the symbol at 2pm - and will find the exact spot again if you try to push him away. No reading, and no book in his inventory. Don't know what to make of this, but if Rpeh made it happen, then I guess it's because he for some reason didn't pick up the book in my game.
