Lich:Script Alias is a third party script and is not maintained by Simutronics. Simutronics is not responsible for the accuracy of the information presented on this page, nor is it liable for issues stemming from the use of the application on players' personal devices.

Alias is a default/core Lich scripted for creating in game shortcuts for any desired scripts or functions

What does it do?

Alias makes an alias!

How do I get it?

;alias is installed by default for Lich and no user installation should be necessary

How does it work?

Alias creates user shortcuts. If you have a common set scripts or don't want to type a long thing out, you can use the Alias script to create a shortened version for one or several combined commands. Think of if like a macro on steroids.

Alias examples

A popular alias example is for ewaggle if you are dispelled. The following Alias will cast any missing ewaggle spells if you were dispelled wag1 => ;ewaggle --stop-at=1

You can also create macros to combine with Aliases

Macro: \x;getabounty\r
Alias: ;alias add getabounty=;e'go2', 'advguild');fput("ask ##{} for bounty")
