|Summary||0000130: When the starting location is mistaken for a direction, the error message says a statement contradicts itself|
|Description||``The North'' is interpreted by Inform as a direction, and it correctly complains. However, the beginning of the message is confusing:|
Problem. You wrote 'The north is a direction' , but that seems to contradict 'The north is a direction' , as container and direction are incompatible. (If container were a kind of direction or vice versa there'd be no problem, but they aren't.)
See the manual: 3.5 > Kinds
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
There is a room.
The Far North is a room.
The player is in The North.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded|
