[Question] How to block other hand completely?
« on: February 05, 2017, 04:00:36 pm »
When holding a double-handed weapon, there is "Blockbothhands: true" but that still allows the wielder to hold another item (even if they can't use the weapon subsequently.)

Is there a way to completely block the wielder from picking up another item?

It was discussed, but it doesn't make any sense. Whatever you are holding, you still have the other hand (unless it's a matter of weight, but that's taken care of by another part of the engine).

You can define a fixed item (displayed as pure blackness) per armor and place it in hand... same way as pockets, belt, backpack, etc. are blocked in PirateZ.

Oh I see.. that is a bit troublesome since I'm still new at this..I was hoping it would be a simple line code ;D Thanks guys.

EDIT: Sorry for mucking up the forum, Solarius. I seem to keep posting in all the wrong places!

I have carried 80 lbs of equipment on my body and an assault rifle in my hands. Even without using the strap, it's easy to pick things up with a free hand. I couldn't pull stuff out of my pack, but that has nothing to do with holding a rifle.
