Clothes and drinks spilling
Please make it stop

Please no auto-freehands drink spilling and cigarette burning anymore. It's as simple as a failure message that says "you need your hands free to do that." Or even specific freehands messages: "Drinks don't go in your pockets, baka." "You may want to snuff that before putting it away, chum."


I think drink spilling and cigarette burning is hilarious when people don't just pretend it didn't happen.
My poor PC's burns are numerous...

I blame myself.

Imagine getting into a random bar brawl but 'fh' not working because of some messages preventing you from putting your stuff away.

It's funny the first time, not the 900th. Unlikely our characters would actually do this.

You could, perhaps, just drop the cigarette instead of burning yourself?
Or you know, automatically snuff it as part of putting it away.
Maybe make it an Intelligence based skill check? To not forget to snuff it basically?
@Qurion2 That at least would make sense. Let IC idiots look like idiots and save the smart characters from their OOC idiocy.
Who the fuck in RL would put a lit cigarette or glass of scotch in their pocket.

Don't answer that.

As someone who nearly cigarette burned his character unconscious one night, I think it's funny as hell. Leave it as it is.
Just make it chance-based. 95% of time FH with drink/cig in hand will drop it on the ground, 5% of the time it will burn/spill.
I like the int roll idea. šŸ˜†
I know everytime I leave the bar IRL Iā€™m covered in cigarette burns and alcohol because I gotta answer my phone.
I've burned myself with cigarettes and spilled booze on myself in real life. You are the one controlling your character and forcing it to do an action. There are already ways to prevent this using existing commands:

'sheath '

Just use that instead of freehands, which does exactly what it says and only fails when you are holding something you simply cannot put away (IE giant gun).

I like that it burns you or spills your drink. It teaches mindfullness of your character and their current in character situation.

I just began to become more self aware of what my character is wearing. If I want to free hands first put the drink on the bar. Drop your cigarette. It's not hard.
I think it was the remove clothing changes that caused the frequency of this to get silly. You have to retrain yourself to think in terms of the game, not reality. In reality, kicking off your shoes wouldn't necessarily taking any hands at all, depending on the shoes. Taking off your hat would only require one. In the game: spill your coffee. Maybe you should find some kind of container to put that in.
Just stop using freehands for everything...
Is there any functional difference between sheath and stash?
One other thought. Once you have spilled a drink on yourself or put a lit cigarette in your pocket, Your clothes should smell like alcohol or a hole should be burnt in your pocket. If we are being real that is. I have smelled myself after spilling a drink and no change at all.
But the 'mindfulness' being checked is the player's not the character's. This 'mechanic' is so baka silly. I'm not gonna sit and argue about it because it's trivial but it's BAKA SILLY. It serves no purpose but to be annoying for no cause.
Personally, i'd rather 'dropping' be the default option. Unless you choose to stash/sheathe something intentionally, if your hands are full it should default to the quickest way to actually do it. This is also consistent with many tabletop RPGs, where dropping something is a free/bonus/object interaction action, whereas putting something away actually impacts your action economy significantly.

This would create a situation where if you try to draw a gun to defend yourself when you're sitting at a bar with a cigarette and a whiskey, your character wouldn't spend the time to try and put a cigarette in their pocket, they'll just drop it to draw their gun.

*recodes it so stashing a drink and a lit smoke catches you on fire*
I stash my scotch

I stash my smoke

My smoke falls in the scotch

Oh shite, now I'm on fire

The fact that you burn yourself when taking off a button-up coat is bizarre. Don't people in Withmore know how to hold a smoke between their lips?
