Subdual damage no longer drops items from PvP

Fill in as MUCH information as you can.
Server Version: 7223
Subdual no longer drops gold or items when used on players. A simple test like I did should prove this.
Yes, the system was changed a long time ago, to one where you use dot commands once someone is down to take things from them.
I personally dislike it, and have wanted to create a new system that isn't affected by the dreaded bag bug, or crashes losing all the gear in those dropped bags, but it's not a small thing to make (so many exploits to deal with) and there's been a lot of stuff on.
Supposedly, the dot command system works, though I haven't used it in...years.
Perhaps a player can help out more than me here.

Those tools presently, to my knowledge, don't work.
I'm not sure who would be the right person to help with Zool out for some time. But this seems to be a very critical part of the system that is broken. Anytime there is any form of Pvp, this becomes a blocking point. @DoctorDeth any chance you could fix this?
For more info - this is part of the "Player tools" scripting.
The actual main code functions work, the broken part, is the triggering of that code.
For instance, the switch case for which "mode" of looting (Gold, loot, all) are 1 2 and 3 (ints) - but it defaults to 0 - if 0 is passed to the function that does the looting, it's not a valid type of looting, so nothing happens.
The switch tries to run the code if it's given a zero, but it still sends the zero, make it change it to a 1, and that's sorted.
The method to change modes does not work - I didn;'t get chance to fully analyse why but, it's something to do with it not returning OBJECT_INVALID when the tool is used on the ground? that's how you're meant to swap modes.
I'm not actually sure if the drop own pack thing is really that useful, and that works by you using the tool on yourself, so a quick fix would be to not bother with that, and make the mode swap work by targetting self.

Made some changes.
Please test the Player Tools as of version 7273.
Attempted to loot via "Loot Player" Player tool after both using Subdual and Beatdown, got the same message both times. I was not able to get any closer.

Thanks for the feedback.
Will obviously need to adjust the allowed looting distance.
Bug testing from new update:
Self looting pack does not work
Tested it with Orin, my pack didn't drop but I did get the following notification
Should be fixed. Tested with players
