I'm actually having a really hard time compiling games. I'm using Inform version 6.33/6M62, but for most games I get endless compilation errors, also after installing extensions. Some that I've tried are: http://i7-dungeon.sourceforge.net/source.txt http://inform7.com/learn/eg/bronze/source.txt htt...

My impression is that it's common for experienced players to try to take everything they can, because if something is available to take, that's usually a sign that it will be necessary or at least useful. Even if they don't try "take torches," they may try "take all." (That doesn...

One possibility would be to make one plural-named scenery thing to represent all the torches that can't be taken, and another thing for the torch that can be taken, for instance, Cave is a room. The description is "A low-roofed cave lit by torches along the wall." Several torches are a plu...

Where I live (in the US, but not in Florida), when you arrive at the polling place, you have go to a check-in table, and sign your name in a book. Then you wait in line for a voting booth to open up, and when it's your turn, you go in the booth and vote. You don't sign the ballot itself. But yeah, I...

I'd make the check even more straightforward: "bearing relates a thing (called X) to a thing (called Y) when the holder of Y is X" That seems to include parts of the holder, which I don't want. So in that case it seems like there'd need to be a second condition to exclude them: Bearing re...

I would make this a computed relation, not a decide statement. I'd probably use the verb "to bear." That means you should be able to test whether "the candlestick bears the candle" as easily as you iterate through "the list of things borne by the table". OK, so like th...

Thanks, but I'm looking for one word that is flexible enough to apply to both containers and supporters. Something like this: say "The table suptains these things:[line break]"; repeat with B running through things: if the table suptains B: say "[B][line break]"; say "[line ...

If there isn't a built-in word for it, would this be a sensible alternative? To decide if (storage-unit - a thing) suptains (item - a thing): if (the storage-unit supports the item) or (the storage-unit contains the item), decide yes; decide no. Or would it be better to use "holds" and add...
