Changes to Inventory and Items

Sleuth Admin

I made some changes today to the way items and inventories work. Hopefully the changes are pretty intuitive. Here are some highlights:

* Coats and Accessories can now be held in inventory, so you can hold items you aren't currently using.

* Personal inventory space has been expanded from 8 slots to 12. Coats take up 2 slots, everything else takes 1.

* In order to equip/unequip coats and accessories, use your mouse to drag items back and forth from inventory. You can do this on either your detective page in the gear dropdown toolbox on the Case page. I tested this on a few different browser configurations, but let me know if you find a bug on the drag and drop system.

* Here's a big one: Items are now degraded on a per-use basis instead of per-case. Only your equipped items should degrade, so you don't need to worry about items in your inventory falling apart.

* Items no longer degrade when you store them in an agency locker.

Please leave any feedback regarding this new system on this thread.

Making these changes is going to allow us to offer much more diverse items (for instance, we can now do coats and accessories as favor prizes), and this was also an important first step to making container objects, so we can now start working on visitable agency headquarters, and (eventually) private apartments.

Have Fun!

Great changes, but the only problem is they make the game a bit easier as less strategy is required now for using the inventory... but still the change is good...

I have an issue with trying to wear to of the same rings at the same time. Seems wont let me. Was that the intenetion or is there a cliche?

It was the original intention not to be able to wear two of the same item eg two strings of sausages. [I know it has been possible in the past]

It sounds like Ben may have fixed it, or at least inadvertently fixed it when he made the inventory changes... so GO dumb luck!!

@Ben and John:
Thanks for the "not to be able to wear 2 of the same item" been fixed. ^_^

Ok Thanks for explanation sounds good, does make little more challenging. So that is always better.

It would be crucial to find out if there's anyway to prevent suspect(s) to die. ^_^

Players doing 'hard to very hard' cases should now see some low level neighbourhood coats (eg + X to North Christie) coming up as favour items very, very rarely. We'll be adjusting the drop rate on these, balancing how often they drop for players versus polluting the favour pool with too many items.

Leaking out some new GIFTS for different case level difficulty.

There is a new unisex GIFT for AI cases dropping rarely from favours.

This gift will last for TWO cases. [counts those cases on an ON USE basis]
This item should offer you bonus 3 questions to a suspect.

More soon.
