Half view/spell distance questions

A few dumb questions regarding the half view/spell distance birth option.

1. Is this symmetrical? I.e. is the view/spell distance for the monsters also halved?

2. Is the stealth (wake up) distance halved for the monsters? (Commensurate with halving the view distance.)

3. Is the ammunition firing distance halved, and if so is it also symmetrical? I.e., will that Kobold Archer still be able to fire at @ from off-screen?

Basically yes to all three, although it's the game maximum firing distance that is halved; if something can normally be fired 16 squares, that will go down to 10.

By the way, when we start considering removing options, I would recommend going to the smaller distance. The difference in gameplay is not huge, but we might need some rebalancing.

That's certainly something to think about.

That value will be in an edit file, too, so it becomes easily user-configurable.
