PSA: use /attributes, /examine, and /describe

Recommended Posts

Aquila    118

It is crazy how few people use /attributes and /examine. They're very useful when you can't be bothered to ask via /do what someone's character looks like.

 

In the interest of roleplay, I believe it was best that this thread exists because apparently not many people are aware that the commands are on the server. I understand that the commands are kinda bugged. Usually a temporary (or permanent, unsure) fix would be to use /attributes clear, then restart.

 

The commands are simple:

/attributes [description] - add anything here. Things that describe your character, such as their race, ethnicity, gender, etc. The most important attributes are height and weight, as well as build and stature. It is vital that you, as a player, describe your character to the best of your ability so others can understand how you're portraying them. It is far more difficult to roleplay with someone without knowing what they're like. Are they fat/skinny? Are they black/white/oriental/other? Are they athletic? Simple things like these can make a big difference.

/examine [id/name] - simple. Use this command on anyone to see their attributes.

/attributes clear - removes all of your attributes. You'd need to readd them after. You can add up to four lines of attributes.

 

Usually if you /examine yourself and nothing shows up (not even something like "your attributes aren't set" or whatever), use /attributes clear and add in some descriptions. 

 

There's not much else to say. I wanted to make this because I had to tell people about the commands and they didn't know they worked and/or existed. Thanks for reading this thread. Hope this has some positive impact on everyone.

 

 

P.S. one more command!

/desc (or /description)- a simple command for temporary descriptions, i.e. your character is on their phone, drinking a specific beverage, or they're stressed/anxious/injured. Use the command again to get rid of it. This command makes a red text appear over your head for everyone to see.

among the many commands that aren't found anywhere under /help (last time i checked) these are the most useful for roleplay that nobody uses

 

better than having to /do all the time

Yeah, wasn't aware this command existed. There's also a sort of darker purple type /ame I've seen people use and haven't figured out which command it is yet.

/createscene? very useful tool

 

there's also /desc for red text above your head, e.g. /desc Taco in hand

 

then /desc again to get rid of it

I think it might still be bugged, but I found the temporary solution - "/attributes clear" fixes it to allow people to re-add their attributes.

How do people get four or five lines of text considering the text box doesn't allow you to have multiple lines
