Placeable Object Help Call

What it Does

When placed on a door (or other interactive placeable object), prompts the object to call for help. This will cause NPCs of the object's faction to come to it's aid, and go hostile on the PC. It's designed for preventing PCs from simply destroying doors and chests in range of guards and such, promoting a more realistic RPG experience.


Notes

Maglazar posted this great little script in a thread I started. It works great and I find it VERY useful, and hope other will too. I'm not sure if this is his script or not, but thanks anyway to Maglazar for pointing this out to me.
