[21:28:02] <Malignant_Manor> >><assur> How close should we stay to the original on the use command? Is it ok to give better usability? For example, in the original, you had to use the tar pit on the bucket. You couldn't use the bucket on the tar pit (may have that reversed). Is it ok to implement both directions when it makes sense?
[21:28:46] <Malignant_Manor> I think the usability way is fine for the bucket. ( This was way back in the logs but there was no answer)
[21:30:35] <assur> yes, I'm going to expand the use feature so when it makes sense, you can use either way
[21:30:58] <assur> I remember the first or second time I played SE, I couldn't get tar into a bucket because of this
[21:31:14] <Malignant_Manor> I remember U6 has some cases like that.
[21:31:57] <Malignant_Manor> Cow milk and bucket plus probably honey from honeycomb and jar.
[21:32:19] <assur> Just a bit of laziness by the developers
[21:32:33] <Malignant_Manor> I think only the back half of the cow can be used.
[21:32:48] <assur> And I truly believe SE was really rushed out anyways. It has the feel of an unfinished game
[21:33:05] <assur> I don't remember MD's as well, I've probably only played that one once
[21:33:37] <Malignant_Manor> There's lots of generic npcs but that's not really a bad thing when you need tons of villagers.
[21:34:06] <Malignant_Manor> Kind of like guards in U6 and U7.
[21:35:11] <Malignant_Manor> I was too lazy to get the conversation table lookup for generic npcs.
[21:36:17] <Malignant_Manor> There was also some issues with the MD hack saved games in SE ruining the look table.
[21:37:09] <assur> I should be able to start the usecode for SE in earnest tonight.
[21:37:26] <assur> Last week/week and a half has been too busy and didn't want to start on this then

[21:42:41] <assur> I did just finish a play through of SE
