Spell Pouches

Post by Aldren » Wed Sep 09, 2015 5:38 pm

It seems many, if not all, of my spellpouches cannot be adjusted to be worn on layers any longer. Seemingly, they are all stuck at "layer over"

Is this unintentional? I recall this code addition being one of the coolest features ever (and also a huge boon to casters in general)

Any other experience with this issue?

I am experiencing this also. When using the basic: a spell pouch

A couple days ago I could wear under, and it would work, and now when I type it, I get Huh?

Experiencing it with a renamed spell pouch item.

Spelling is not necessarily correct :)

So, to clarify the issue, all of your other belt objects still choose an empty wear slot, correct?

Correct. Unfortunately now, "wearunder" "weararmor" and "wearover" are now returned with "Huh?" for my spellpouches, but other items worn on belt are functioning as normal and able to be worn on any open belt layer (seemingly).

I've experienced the same on multiple chars, some with generic pouches, others renamed and so on, but nothing else seems to be working incorrectly.

I'm glad this was braught up--thought it was an intended change and it makes me sad. *sniff*

Must be something specific to the items in question, because in general the code seems to be working:

WEAR POUCH BELT
WEAR POUCH BELT
WEAR POUCH BELT
EQUIP
You are using:
<worn about waist> a leather belt (perfect)
<worn on belt> a spell pouch (superb)
<worn on belt> a spell pouch (superb)
<worn on belt> a spell pouch (superb)

Raona - this is not the problem. Belt wear locations are fine, but the code that used to govern "wearunder, weararmor, and wearover" are no longer working. This code and the description as such is now gone from examining the spellpouches in question.

Indeed, i used to be able to wear my spellpouch on my body or arms and then use wearunder to put them to the close skin layer. This seems to be gone now

I understand now - thank you for the clarification. This was hard code, so I'm sorry to say I think only Mask can speak to what happened to it.

Not a bug. The commands for changing layers, the soft code aspect of this, has been removed for redundancy/non-function. As the hard code resets layers to default on log in, it becomes glitchy and allows multiple objects worn in the same layer. The soft code dates back to when layers were not reset on log-in/the belt layers were not interchangeable. Currently the belt layers are interchangeable and there are more wear locations available, making the original use of these commands unnecessary and sub-optimal. When this no longer clashes with hardcode, we will look into having this feature restored.
