You can't split this kind of things. Only coins, worms and such can be split.
Cuts of cloth can be ungrouped only, as well as shields and other things.

This -is- a wishlist thread. Meaning that yes, these are ideas/commands which are not currently possible, but someone would like to see implemented.

Number 1:
Expand the collect command with:

collect <item> from <#-#> <item> [into <item>]

For example:
collect Pteryges from <1-29> corpse into 3 sack

When sack is full you stop with collecting.

Number 2:
Empty Corpse [into <item]

That will remove all items from corpse and put them on the ground or into <item>.

You are at a wide cobbled road.
A constable is standing some distance ahead to your left. A crowd of people gradually make its way past you.

You toss a sharp knife at a constable's feet.

How about that "release" and "free" were always used interchangeably?

I read what you quoted in your post, and thought to myself, "Those would be awesome!," and then realized....it was me you were quoting.

Pneumonia + Bronchitis + Pulled/Bruised Ribs + Cold Medicine + Pain Medicine + Sleep Deprivation = Actually thought about hiring ninjas to put me out of my misery. Seriously enough I actually Googled "Ninjas for Hire" at some point. Don't remember doing it, but it the results for it were up on my browser when I woke up from a random medicine nap in my computer chair.

And to keep this thread on track:

Command: Force-Event <gm target>
Effect: Forces another GM to run an event for me to I can take a medicated, and pain-filled nap instead.

You count 100 chests.
empty <1-20> chest into sac.
You begin to empty some chests into a large sack.

I think the <x-y> commands could be very helpful, especially for very repetitive tasks.

Discard <1-30> spear

I'm sure there are other examples others can think of.

The first one exists:
Match chest
blah blah amounting to 34 chests here
collect contents <1-34> chest into sack
You begin collecting contents.
You empty a small chest with brass rivets into a tattered black sack.
You empty a small oak travel chest into a tattered black sack.
etc etc

This. I kind of feel like this is as dumb as the WEST command not working on doors and such requiring you to type GO WEST instead.

I used to have them, but they got accidentally deleted somewhere along the way. I didn't realize it until redoing my macros a couple weeks ago.

I wish for more places to <lay> down. Now, you get the most fat% recov by laying down so there's mechanical reasons to lay down. However, pple look at u funny if you lay down in random places. BUT in roman settings there are a lot of recliners that you<lay> on rather than <sit>, so to merge realism w. mechanics, I wish there were moer placeces, in Septima's, in Blackvine, on feucking ferries that you could <lay< on that are be both realistic and playable.

thx
