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!

There is a new unisex GIFT for B - I cases dropping rarely from favours.

This gift will last for THREE cases. [counts those cases on an ON USE basis]
This item should offer you bonus 1 questions to a suspect.

And that my friends is that the last of those multi-use unisex gifts for now.

the gifts are meant to stay in inventory or in locker, but not in hand, maybe because its set as gifts and not gear. ^_^

Problem at porn brokers; 16 spaces in personal inventory but only 12 spaces where they let you sell things, had to mess about storing things in agency locker and taking a reduced number of items to sell.

Yeah, sorry, I found that out myself the other day. We're working on a fix for that.

On the positive side, I noticed that once a player used the unisex gifts, the description on it will update with the remaining uses left. Wow! That's really amazing and great work. Keep it up! ^_^
