Definition
A sequence of behaviors an entity potentially performs, which may be processed over one or more game ticks.

Questions
1. is explicit priority needed?
2. is a queue of actions needed?

Assumptions
1. an action must be able to take priority over another
2. an action must be able to be suspended

Examples

Observations
Once an action is completed, and then the next action [if exists] is continued at whichever suspendable state

Discussions
Actions which lock players

[7:43 PM] Tyluur: > jagexs plr queue stuff has 'strong' queues which are controlled by the developer and leave the player entirely in a locked state
what's an example of an action in a strong queue
[7:43 PM] Ryley: teleporting
[7:43 PM] Ryley: force movement
[7:43 PM] Ryley: cut scenes
[7:43 PM] Ryley: etc
[7:43 PM] Ryley: stuff u cannot cancel
[7:51 PM] Ryley: @Chrischis2
A weakqueue is cancelled if the player clicks away - commonly used for Make-X. Queues are weak / strong / normal.
[7:51 PM] Ryley: looking for the one with info on the regular queue
[7:51 PM] Ryley: iirc it just waits until whatever 'blocking' thing ur doing finishes before executing
[7:51 PM] Tomm:
[7:52 PM] Ryley: i.e if u have ur bank open and u have an experience drop waiting
[7:52 PM] Ryley: once the interface closes it fires
[7:52 PM] Ryley: ya that
[7:52 PM] Ryley: strong takes total control of the player to execute
[7:52 PM] Ryley: closes interfaces, cancels actions etc
