Question on precedence and pet spotting.

In a scenario like this:

Would the dog spot the burglar and begin to follow his movements before the powered door closes?

Great question!  I just jumped in CD to test it, and it seems like the door closes before the dog sees you.

You could try this:

The dog won't jump in the pit unless the robber blows through the concrete above the doorway.

Yet the dog would pass through the open door. What I was hoping for was something that would let the burglar be followed by a pet behind a wall without letting the burglar know the pet is there. I guess that's impossible, though.

Re: Question on precedence and pet spotting.

I think the full order of things that happen goes something like this:

- Robber moves
- Pets/family move
   - Starting at bottom left corner, going to right then moving up a row
- Switches toggled
- Electronics calculated
  - Power propagates, then VTS are switched, repeat 32 times or until a repeated state
- Death calculated
- Vision calculated
