Object is wearable

From ADRIFT 5 Manual Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a property of DYNAMIC objects only. This property should be set for any item of clothing or jewelry that the player character can wear, such as shirts, ties, shoes, hats, rings, necklaces and armour.

If an object has this property, then the player character can put it on or take it off using any of the following commands:

> wear %objects%
> put on %objects%
> don %objects%
> put %objects% on

If a dynamic object has the "wearable" property and the player is carrying it, then they put it on.

> remove %objects%
> take off %objects%
> take %objects% off

If the player character is wearing the %objects%, then they take them off. The objects become "held by the player character".

  • You can put on or take off several objects at once using a command like "remove the hat, the shoes and the tie"
  • To put on every wearable object you are carrying, use the command "wear all"

If you examine a character, the objects he is wearing will be listed after his description and before the list of items that he is carrying.

He is wearing a top hat and a pair of red shoes, and is carrying a cane.

Worn by who

The "Worn by who" property indicates the character that is currently wearing this object, if its location is currently "Worn by Character".

  • Note that if the "Object is wearable" property is NOT selected, that this only prevents the player from using the "wear %object%" command to put something on. The "Worn by who" property is not effected and can still be used to place any object onto any character as a worn item.

"Worn by who" does depend on the state set in the "Location of the object" property, which must be set to "Worn by character".

Both of these properties are on the description page of the object, not the properties page, and are inside the box labelled "Initial location".



These properties are defined in the "Wear and Remove" folder of The Standard Library.
