Rychek [intelligence] +5
... bartenders with a memory

Its not documented, but a month or two back, the food/drink serving NPCs (Rychek, Metal-Mouth Sally, etc) were made smart enough to remember the last drink you purchased from them. That let them respond to requests 'for another' and so on.

We'll, tonight, thanks to Kevlar's thinking and my coding, they now will remember what you last asked for. This means that you can order a 'sandwich' and Sally can tell you that she 'can get you a cajun, an original or a BBQ' and you can then tell her 'cajun' and she'll know to get you a cajun sandwich.

Kev noticed that you guys already order like this and then are forced to learn it the hard way, so it was a good idea to support the manner in which you were already ordering.

Additionally, bartenders can tell you what is on the menu and how well business is doing. Just ask.

I know it's far from essential, but would you be able to make bartenders recognise the phrase "Same again" for ordering what you ordered last, too?

while you're at it... how about the phrase

hit me baby one more time!


sorry... couldn't help myself. :)

okay, where did I leave that bat....

I'll hit you twice, and at no extra charge!


"same again"? no

"another"? yes

"the usual"? yes

But "the usual" should not just give you the last drink you ordered.  If I always order scotch, but one day I get a vodka, then I say, usual, I should get a scotch, not a vodka.

I'm not going to store a matrix of the drinks you've ordered and give you the one you order the most. Everything we do lives in memory and affects everyones game play, this would be a large array of data, especially for a place as busy as the Drome. You'll have to keep track of it yourself and only use 'the usual' when you want the last thing you ordered.

Why not just have people set their 'usual' in their @profile, and have the bartenders read from that?

I can see it now...

;Rob.Usual_drink == "A Big Fucking Pitcher of Long Island Iced Tea"

Heh, just like I drank last night...*hicup*.

Sally got so smart she steals your money...

You [to Metal-Mouth Sally]: A McChikken BBQ sandwich, please
Metal-Mouth Sally says, "That'll be 70 chyen."
You pay Metal-Mouth Sally 70 chyen.
Metal-Mouth Sally pulls a McChikken BBQ sandwich out from under the heat lamps.
Metal-Mouth Sally places one McChikken BBQ sandwich in front of you.
Metal-Mouth Sally [to You]: There ya go. Enjoy!

But I cant seem to find the sandwich anywhere, not on the tables, in my inventory nor my hands...

If you bother to read the desc, you'll see a counter. Hmm, could that be the mysterious location of your sammich?

Ok I'm dumb... :confused:

the lean mean RPin machine couldn't find his sammich? Hehehehehehe....

I guess I shouldn't be laughing cause I've done some stupid shit, but ohh well..

Don't feel so bad Xee...if someone wouldn't have told me about that new code, I would've done the same damn thing too.
