This sets the name of your fresh material. Do not include 'pair of' if you're creating some pants, instead, the command will prompt you if you want to add these things in. This name will be utilized to target the item and will be used in several @messages later on.
This is how you configure a piece of clothing to be worn on the various body locations. It's perfectly fine to avoid setting various locations that your article may cover partially, so as to allow underlying articles to show 'through' the outer layer.
The thickness of an item's material will affect whether it can be worn OVER or must be worn UNDER other items on the same @coverage spot. For example: You cannot put a cotton brassiere on over an armored trench coat. Certain @name words (for one example, "Overcoat") will make an item wearable over anything. More details are at http://sindo.me/mmZdxa
This permanently establishes the primary color of your fresh material. This color must appear at least once in the @describe and @worn messages. Once you set it, the only way to change it will be through IC tools.
Toggle the 'see-thru' state of a piece of clothing, allowing nakeds, tattoos, cyberware and other clothing to completely show through in addition to this piece of clothing. This is useful for jewelry, watches, eyeglasses, mesh, etc.
Set the description of your fresh material. This is what you see when you look 'at' the article of clothing, not when you look at someone. You MUST include the string %color in the description so that the item's color can be dynamically changed. Avoid using any gender pronouns (his, her) or anyone's name, as the item could be worn by someone else. Read 'help pronouns' for what to use instead.
An example of using the %color string would be, "This dress is made of %color cottons."
%color would be replaced by whichever color you used with the @color command.
View the various messages that make an article of clothing unique and fun in the first place. You MUST include the string %color in the @worn message (do not include it in the others, it won't work there) so that the item's color can be dynamically changed. Avoid using any gender pronouns (his, her) or anyone's name, as the item could be worn by someone else. Read 'help pronouns' for what to use instead. Changing any message of something that has been @finalize'd will render it unfinalized and unwearable.
Under the @messages
@integration - This one you cannot actually set and has no purpose as a player. It is used when an admin wants to display a clothing article in a room description.
@wear - This is the message someone will see when they wear the clothing.
@owear - This is the message everyone else will see when someone wears the clothing.
@remove - This is the message someone will see when they remove the clothing.
@oremove - This is the message everyone else will see when someone removes the clothing.
@worn - This is what will show up on someone's description when you 'look
@blood_description - This is the message that shows up when the article of clothing gets blood on it, usually a result of injuries to themselves or by causing injuries to others. This message has to be written differently than others, due to the way it shows up on someone's body. It will show up in someone's description as "The %t is covered in fresh <@blood_description>". %t is the name you set with @name.
The tease command is a way to flaunt what you've got to other players. Specifically, there are three variants of the command and they show up to players in different ways. 'examine
@tease - This is what you will see when you tease your article of clothing without a target.
@dtease - This is what will show up when you target another player with your article of clothing. This message replaces the @tease and @otease message entirely, so use of pronouns is incredibly important.
@otease - This is what everyone else will see when you tease your article of clothing without a target.
A handy tool best used to verify that you're ready to @finalize something. Green means that you have set required messages, red means that you have failed to do so yet. It's a good way to verify that you've set all your messages at a glance.
Note: "realname" will always show in red, and reveals what type of material an object was actually made out of.
Use this command to complete your work on an article of clothing, making it wearable AND valuable. Use @check to validate your work before you @finalize it. When you @finalize it, your skills at tailoring will be used to determine whether you can finish the item and the value of the article of clothing. The first time you do this, the value will be basically locked in and each subsequent time you @finalize the item, the value will go down. This means that it pays to do your best work the first time and that typos have the potential to cost you.
