Summary0005549: Add Secrets System
DescriptionSecrets are easter eggs of some kind, such as a well-hidden or hard to reach piece of loot, switch or location.

Kingsal has proposed adding official support for tracking secrets so that mappers no longer need to script this for themselves and so that it shows up on the statistics screen at the end of a mission. This should help secrets become a more common feature in TDM.

The system needs to provide a script-free means for a mapper to designate secrets, a way of "finding" a secret (frob, trigger) and a way of letting the player know that he has found a secret. There should also be new script events that allow a mapper to script with secrets, even making his own system (now with purpose-made scripts events). For reference, Thief simply shows a short message and plays a sound when a secret is found.

Since there have already been ca. 150 missions released that won't make use of this system, the secrets statistic should only shown at the end of a mission if secrets have been designated in the map.
