Flags, Permissions, and Vehicles

When creating a ship, I wanted certain rooms to be controllable as a vehicle while others are not (i.e. you shouldn't be able to, say, steer and look out to sea from the brig). I'm using @lock here=Vcontrol=$~anyone on rooms where control is an option. This works at first, but I've noticed that I have to re-do it from the ship builder (Seigrave) almost every time someone else wants to use a +vc #control command. Is there another command I should be tacking on to make that change permanent, or is this just a bug? To note, rooms that are locked to where NO control is an option remain properly locked to players outside of the builder, which is good.

Re: Flags, Permissions, and Vehicles

Have you tried +lock instead of @lock? I think they do the same thing, but might be worth a shot. :p

If I set

+lock here=vcontrol=$~anyone

on the boarding room of a vehicle, it appears to allow various alts to pilot it.

Maybe set

+lock here=vcontrol=!$~anyone

on the vehicle parent. That'll turn off driving by default for all rooms under the parent/in the vehicle. Then do

+lock here=vcontrol=$~anyone

for each room that should allow characters to pilot the vehicle.

Not sure why the lock would unset from character to character. They can be finicky though.

Re: Flags, Permissions, and Vehicles

And as for whether the "From outside:" crud is displayed:

Rooms parented to Vehicle Listen Parent will show that text. Rooms parented to Vehicle No-Listen Parent will not.

Ya can switch a room's parent with @tele...

@tele here=#dbref of correct parent
