Bear with me for my poor explanation … what I intend to do is the following:
Certain people can wear certain things.
The player randomly assumes the role of one of these people. (Not by “now the player is” as this causes TONS of problems)
People are assigned roles so that I cloth them much later
Now - the player is supposed to wear what the person would normally wear if not in a special role
I have a table for that
Now … instead of doing an endless loop over all possible characters and see who I am and which table to look for I want a better solution
MyRoom is a room.
when play begins:
Let R be the firstname of the player;
Let R be "[R] Clothes";
Say "Debug: [R]";
let L be the list of items in the table of R;
a person has a text called firstname.
The firstname of the player is "Kerstin".
the sweater is wearable.
the jeans is a wearable.
the Bluse is a wearable.
The rock is a wearable.
Table of Olga Clothes
sweater " "
Jeans " "
Table of Kerstin Clothes
Bluse " "
Rock " "
This does not work because R is a text and the interpreter extects a proper Table (as object) - is there a way to “convert” the text R so that what I am intending to do would work?
Because if it would work, all I had to do is loop through the item column of the proper table and wear the items.
