Now i've come back to my work with Adrift, i've found a small oddity.

In one of the first rooms of my wip, there are a number of static objects and some dynamic objects inside a container.

After opening the container and looking at the objects within, the "get all" command will try to get some of the static objects but not others, and does nothing with the objects in the container.
But taking those objects individually works fine.

Does anyone know why the "get all" command attempts to get the static objects?

Ok :D I found the reason for part of this... It's not taking the static objects that are also in other rooms. :)

Now i just need to make it so that those static objects that are only in this room dont warn me i cant take them when i use "get all" :cool:

And get those objects that are in the container...

Any ideas??

Is this your own get all command?

Nope... At least... I can't find a "get all" command in the task list. :)

Could you share how it was corrected? In case someone else has the same problem.

For some reason, the objects, altho were Static, still had a Dynamic location. The way to correct was to edit each object, set back to Dynamic, then set back to Static. I think it's probably caused by the object being created initially as Dynamic and given a location, then changed to Static. So flaky software really... :blush:
