Another v4 problem

Postby Lazzah » Fri Dec 22, 2017 3:11 pm

I have given the PC some clothes to wear. You cannot take these off so I have created a REMOVE CLOTHES task with the completion message "You can't walk around naked!". I have TAKE OFF CLOTHES as alternate input but when I type this in the game responds with "You're not standing on anything!".

Why would it do that?!

Without being able to test it right now I would guess it may have something to do with TAKE and GET being synonyms.

Yes, it will be that TAKE and GET are the same. V4 is interpreting that as you are trying to take something you are already holding. Haven't test it but I bet if you TAKE OFF OBJECT it will just take the object from the location. I guess this is one of the many reasons the V4 parser always gets a kicking from the world outside ADRIFT.

I was thinking more along the lines of it interpreting it as GET OFF OBJECT.
