Proposal: Even even more hammers

Timed out (1-3)
Failed by Hix

If proposal NPCs! passes Add the following hammer:
Doppelganger

If a Doppelganger-type hammer is used on another monkey, a monkey called Doppelganger of X, n (Where X is the name of the monkey that the hammer is used on and n is equal to the number of doppelgangers that have ever existed in the game) occupies the same position as that monkey.  Doppelgangers are NPCs and there can be a maximum of 3 doppelgangers in the game. If a new one is created, the one with the smallest number of the four(ie the oldest) will be destroyed.

I wanna see “Doppelganger of Doppelganger of Clucky, 2, 5” get added. (If Doppelganger of Zephyr, 4 hit Doppelganger of Clucky, 2 with a hammer, that would happen)

- To me that says there are 4 doppelgangers.

against I think both these issues should be resolved:

1) ‘If a new one is created…’ implies the previous will always be destroyed, so there will never be more than one. Also, if it’s interpreted ‘of the four’, whereas before ‘...a maximum of 3…’ implies there will never be a fourth to be created. Confusing in either case.

2) Further down the line could easily be ‘Doppelganger of Doppelganger of Doppelganger of Doppelganger of Clicky, 2, 5, 14, 27’.

Good point. Unless you started with three doppelganger, none could be created because as soon as on is created, it has the lowest number and thus is destroyed.

I do not mind being able to make doppelgangers of doppelgangers. I think its kinda cool actually.
