The combat AI is already typed to only attack /Player mobs. You also shouldn't be checking if things ==null, instead, use something like if(!M.key).
Oh! My bad. I forgot I took that part out. Either way, if you want that bit taken out AND NPCs not to attack eachother because you don't want your mob to have a special path, that works too.
why does it say for me that level=1 is an undefined var
Capital Level?
When my enemy attacks once close to me, it disappears. What should i go?

Posting the relevant code would be helpful.
i need help i put the combat ai proc in but it says this;179:error: M: undefined type: M for every line with 'M'

I think it's probably the flick, his enemy probably doesnt have the attack state.
I had the same issue with the disappearing enemies, except they were only visible when attacking. Turns out I forgot to specify a name for the enemy's walk state.

Another bit of weirdness I had was attacking myself if another enemy was out of range. Adding the following under the Attack verb right above the damage calculation cleared it up:

if (M == src) return 0

Thanks again for the Tutorials. They're a good kickstart even if they aren't perfect.

This is my AI system. But whenever I use this my CPU increase for 2%. What I want to do here is that when players are in AI oview(7-3) he will do projectile.
My goal is also to prevent AI from facing them diagonally!
I also want that if AI is in oview 2 he will walk to player and attack him once he is 1 step away from him. And while non player is in AI oview he will be teleported back to spawn and get his stats refreshed. Ty

There you go. Your code is a ton more complicated than it needs to be.

/mob/monster
name = "monster"
icon = 'monster.dmi'
desc = "a horrible green monster"
var/mob/target
var/speed = 5 //The lower the speed, the faster the monster is!

New()
..()
life()

proc/life()
if(!target) for(var/mob/M in view(7, src))
if(M.client)
target = M
break
if(target)
if(target in view(1, src)) attack(target)
else step_to(src, target)
else step_rand(src)
spawn(speed) .()

attack(var/mob/M as mob)
view(7, src) << "[src] claws [M]!"
