furniture, new code

I've read the new changes about resting on items and if the item isnt there you woon't be sitting.

Is it possible to have it so if you are resting on an item that it can't be picked up from under you. For example, I carry a strung stool around with me, drop it, rest on it, pick it back up. From what I understand is that now I have to drop it and leave it there. But how could someone take it while I'm resting on it?? Also it is strung so leaving it down would mean in a crash I lose it. I wouldn't have strung it if these changes were in already.

I suggest a code change allowing you to use furniture in your inventory without having to drop it first.

Thanks for clearing up a dozen lines into 2.

'Ook' not a fun change =)

Though making it so that someone can't take something while you're sitting on it, that's relatively easy.

As far as the object saving over crashes, that'd be easier to case out really.

So if you drop something and sit on it, it would still be in your inventory so when you type 'save' it would save?

I was thinking more like it stayed owned to you so it saved when the mud crashed. Wouldn't be in your inventory.

Couldnt it be so you didn't have to drop it to rest on it? So when I type rest steps, it checks the room then my inventory for such and item and possible to sit on it. That way people wouldn't have to drop items to sit on them.

While we're talking about furniture, if you're sitting at a table and then stand, you should just be standing, not standing on the table. But you should be able to 'stand table' to stand on the table if you like.
