Exotic mobs cannot put stuff in containers!
« on: June 12, 2013, 10:22:02 am »
Here's something weird, that I just noticed. Thought I'd share it, while I remember.

I've made a script that makes a mob randomly go around to a number of different rooms, and put an object in a container in one of them.

That is, that's what the script was supposed to do, only the mob just dropped the object on the floor instead.
I couldn't figure out what was causing it, until I noticed that I had used a small android for the task, and it had the race set as exotic. I changed the race to humanoid, and then the script worked fine.

I guess exotic mobs have no arms and hands?
Actually I don't understand why the code is set this way, but maybe there is a deeper meaning behind it, that some of our coders could explain to me?

Does it have to do with the famous snakes with arms and legs that irritated me so much in the past?

I thought that's why we used exotic - because of the arms and legs thing...
