the new arrow boxes

Postby mongwen » Sat Apr 25, 2015 8:13 am

Anyone else having trouble with the cyntax or is it just me?

look box
A sturdy wooden box is here, designated for arrows to be used by the
archers. You can PUT shortbow arrows into this box to supply the archers.
You can LOOK IN the box to see how many arrows there are.
>
look in box
The box is currently 0 percent full.
>
equip
<carried in right hand> a straightened bodkin arrow
...snipped for brevity and clarity
So here we see that normal put cyntax should work and normal look as well, as those are in all caps.

look arrow
The yellowish-tan shaft is made from the straight-hewn wood of short linden,
cut to fit a shortbow's draw length. It is straightened and tested true, the
wood soaked and fashioned to improve it from its natural state. The arrowhead
is utilitarian and of simple cast-metal manufacture and made of holey, impure
bog iron, this arrow has a head that is fashioned with a long, hardened point
for piercing armors. The fletching is the trimmed and shaped pinions in the
blue and black stripes of a jay.
It is in good condition.

A good look at the arrow in question, confirming that it is indeed a shortbow arrow.

>
put arrow in box
A box collecting arrows for defenders is not a container.

Anyone else managed to figure it out?

Since 'put object box' is way more commonly used than 'put object in box', I haven't accounted for people using that syntax. Will be fixed shortly. Until then, PUT ARROW BOX.
I don't always test my code.
But when I do I do it on the player port.

Now live:
put arrow box
You put a warped simple arrow into a box collecting defenders' arrows.

put 2 arrow in box
You put 2 warped simple arrows into a box collecting defenders' arrows.

Thanks for reporting the issue!

Pm sent Ceredir. Think your fix may have cleared a few dozen arrows I placed in the orkish defenders box this morning.

Not necessarily. The archers most likely took the arrows from the box to put in their quivers. They will hold a couple dozen each I believe and check periodically to see if they need more and keep taking as needed. If those were the first arrows put into the box, they most likely filled themselves up on them.

Damn, Meneldor ninja'd me.

That is indeed exactly what happened. You'll need quite a lot of arrows before the buggers stop stealing from your stockpile.

big kudos to staff for keeping things balanced for both sides of the war
A really bad sword with a short blade lies here.
look sword
This sword hardly even a sword. It's kind of really just a piece of metal bent like a sword. Its blade is rather short. Kind of pathetic, really.

The put arrow *in* quit working again, in case you're interested.

Always interested. Not sure where -that- typo came from, but will be fixed on next reboot :-)
Thanks!
