Upgraded Short Description
@shortdesc change

Ok, first, for some, a step backwards. You no longer have the ability to set your short description. I apologize to those who made great and consistent use of the old @shortdesc system. I know some of you aren't thrilled with not being able to set the majority of your short description.

Now for a giant leap forward. Your short description is now determined automagically using bits and pieces from the following:

� - basic body type (your height and weight)
� - whether your naked, topless or bare-assed
� - important things you might be carrying
� - your most noticeable article of clothing
� � � �- brighter colors are more noticeable
� � � �- larger articles are more noticeable
� � � �- armor is more noticeable
� - your eyes might be a noticeable color
� - if you're attractive
� - if you're ugly
� - your gender (manage with @shortdesc)

There are two forms of your short description, your full or composite short description, and your brief short description.

You will start to encounter these being used in place of your name (or in addition to your name) in various places:

� �- Someone's 'look' now includes their full short description immediately after your name. What catches your eye is right there.
� �- Disguising clothing uses the brief form
� �- Arriving in a new room will use your full short description along with your name.
� �- Thermo Vision now uses the brief form for humans
� �- having npcs witness your actions based on your short description
   - [pending] adding the brief form to your aliases

I welcome your suggestions on where else we might integrate this great tool.

Please note: NPCs often do not have clothing objects on them (to help prevent bloat), and with the new code, a lot of their short descriptions report them as 'naked'. Please ignore this inconsistancy for now. I will be addressing the problem in the near future.


Don't hate me because I'm @shortdesc me is "beautiful"

Short descriptions are now used in the ambient crime reporting code. So judges will have your description when someone automagically reports a crime.

Reportable crimes include:
  - assault
  - pickpocketing
  - breaking into vehicles
  - crashing vehicles*

* - not technically a crime, but reportable

Good shit.

I think...I just...came...

I'm working on getting your hair involved in your short description. Towards that end, I needed to create coded support for unnatural hair (dyed, cut, extended, etc).

The new 'hairstyle <me>' command is only available in apartments (or shower rooms). For the most part, this includes any place with a 'shower' command, but notably absent are the CUBES. Thats right, no fancy Auto Style 5000 hair styling device in those cubes.

So, use this command to establish or change your hairstyle as you feel like it for the time being. This takes no skill, does not persist through clones ... and is only visible to -you- on your @stats at present. (that last part is only cause its late, hehe)

Soon to come: noticeable hair being incorporated in the short description as appropriate.

This should enable those of you with things like blue hair to stand out a bit more. Just a little thing that took way too much time to code due to how complex hair fucking is, lol.

I can haz sleeps now? thx bye. :sleep:

Your hair, natural or modified, can now affect your short description. :)
