Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How do I use an inventory item on another item in my world?

I only came across "click right mouse button to eat and fill your energy". Useful, but not what I want to do. What I would like to do is this: Say I have a bucket of paint in my inventory. I want to drag it out and onto a chair, and then swap the chair's mesh to a painted one (my inventory can already drag between inventories).

In fewer words, classic point and click adventure interaction, but without point and click movements, I have a first person environment. It would be nice if I could have the paint cooperate with a specific object, so every item in my inventory would be used with any item in my world I want. Thanks in advance for any guidance, there isn't much material out there for things like this.
