Understand “hack [any room]” as hacking into.
Hacking into is an action applying to one thing.
Check an actor hacking into a room:
if the noun is not a node, say “You can’t hack it.” instead;
Carry out an actor hacking into a node:
try the actor hacking the noun with intention of user;
Understand “hack [any room] for/at/-- [access-account] access/level/–” as hacking it with intention of.
Hacking it with intention of is an action applying to one thing and one access-account.
Carry out hacking it with intention of:
if the access-account understood is admin:
now the actor is admin of the noun;
otherwise if the access-account understood is security:
now the actor is security of the noun;
now the actor is a user of the noun;
Persuasion rule for asking a person to try doing something:
Test me with “hack the lab / bob, hack the lab / robot, n / n / robot, hack The Body Shop for admin access / hack The Body Shop for security access / relations”.
Been thinking about how to go about this for a while, and I think I know what I want to do, but I don’t know how to manage the mechanics of it.
I want an actor to be able to "hack " with a default of “user access”. I think I have this part figured out, except that I can’t seem to make the commands apply to the other potential actors through persuasion. They’re trying, but failing, I think. See example and test statements.
Robot starts off with security access to the Lab.
From there, no one should be able to get any admin-access to The Lab because it’s not a node. However I/the player manage to get an access account to the Lab. But Bob can’t get access (indeed, he shouldn’t – except that I did, so this makes little sense to me).
When I move to another room which IS a node, I can still get an access account, but Robot, who should get an account, does not.
Is there a better way to go about this, or am I missing something?
