Object INSIDE character?

Postby P/o Prune » Sun Dec 15, 2019 5:05 pm

Is there a way to have an object inside a character, or will I have to make make a character AND an (container) object?

Could the character not be an object itself that you could define as a container? Using tasks you can still interact with it.

I guess it could.
But then I'd have to create tasks for every conversation topic.

I would make a body-part like an ear or stomach that is 'part of character' and also a container.
Then you can put whatever you want inside it (even another character if they have been taken over by aliens)

Thanks Saabie.
This will probably work fine with my game. I'll give it a try.
