if you just rushed someone in an apartment, would you have the time, in a fight now, to count out some chyen, slot it into a door and have the door upgraded?
also, while fighting, i think all commands other than posture, weild/use/hold, and combat related commands should not work. (flee, stop attacking, etc... = combat related commands)
obviouslly talk, shout, emote, pose, and look, and the sic commands wouldnt be affected.
but realisticly could you call a number on your phone whlie fighting? possibly if you stopped attacking and just took it all, cowering over the phone for life.
but thats just my two cents.
for what its worth.
