Ingest from portable container (was "drink all")

This option should be introduced long ago. You drink / eat the contents of the container without removing. If there is something you can not eat or drink option is not possible.

I like this idea, presumeably with the caption "Blah drinks beer from a small glass bottle" That would be nice, as when rping drinking, it'd be nice to see the others drink.

Should not be possible to eat directly from barrels, silos or other static containers imho.

So it's already possible? Brilliant :-)

No it is not. What is possible however, is to Gimp/Photoshop screenshots, so they don't look like they really do. :)

On a fixed container you have the option to take out to inventory, or to the ground. This could be the equivalence for a portable container.

I see, none of my chars have had much dealings with portable conatainers yet, so I wouldn't know, but, I agree, this would be perfect!

'Ingest it' would be better than 'Digest it'. And I love this idea! If it comes with the message.

Accepted suggestion:

Add possibility to eat directly from portable container, as:

* Only for portable containers.
* Text should be "Ingest it".
* Should create a visible event.

Is this coming along? I'd really like to see this happening, and it's so simple I can't imagine it'd take all of two years to finish. :P

I'm working on extended version of this suggestion: both Leinades' and Echoman's ideas.
Both can be useful and initial idea will work better with ajax-based object interface.

EchoMan wrote:* Should create a visible event.

I remember there was recently a discussion about similar thing and most of people were against.


Is it still true that you'd like events in case of eating stuff from portable storages held in inventory? Like that:
1. for Leinades' "eat all" button
X eats some mashed potatoes, cooked meat, spinach from wooden plate.



2. for Echoman's "ingest" button
X eats some potatoes from wooden plate.

Ingest is complementary to "eat all", so it's unlikely to see multiple eating events.


Pros:
+ some help in RP for people who don't *emote* much
+ harder to cheat - people who *emote eating* must really eat, not hide food to recycle it ;)
Cons:
- Cluttering events
- Reducing freedom of RP by mechanical events, which currently can be roleplayed well


I think it's controversial, so I'll stick to player's vote.

EDIT: Poll added.

Can this be moved from "accepted" since there's discussion about it again? I rarely check the accepted forum and only saw this because it was pointed out to me.

I really like the idea of being able to eat/drink from held containers. It would make them so much easier to use. Right now I rarely put anything into containers because I'll just have to remove it later to eat.

I am very opposed to there being an event created.

I am very for an event being created. The pros are pros, and as for the cons,

- Cluttering events
Events can be filtered, so this should really never be a con.

- Reducing freedom of RP by mechanical events, which currently can be roleplayed well
People RP dropping items, handing items to others, entering/exiting buildings, etc. all the time. Just because there's an event doesn't mean people will not RP it; quite the opposite, I think.
Really, I'd like eating events for all eating, but I think it's most important for out of containers, since there's already an event for taking anything out of containers.

I agree with you completely on everything except this "fact" because I'm pretty sure there's currently no event for taking things out of held containers.

Just so everything stays clear.
