Clarification: The first bug described in the referenced posting does not appear to exist anymore. That one received tracking number 986.
Notes by Nathan Schwartzman:
This turned out to be simpler than I expected -- now I wish I hadn't spent months avoiding it out of dread. Giving the order PAUL, KISS LAMP with trace=3 active shows that the token fails with etype 11, which is ANIMA_PE. It fails because NounDomain correctly returned the lamp, but the lamp fails CreatureTest() so etype is set to 11. Changing Grammar.h avoids this:
Verb 'kiss' 'embrace' 'hug'
* noun -> Kiss;
So you just swap out creature token for noun token.
But, this means that when players type "kiss lamp" they no longer receive the message "You can only do that to something animate." Personally, I always thought that was a silly message anyway. But an alternative solution would be to have CreatureTest allow this only when the player is giving an order, by testing for actor ~= player.
Something like this:
[ CreatureTest obj;
if (actor ~= player) rtrue;
if (obj has animate) rtrue;
if (obj hasnt talkable) rfalse;
if (action_to_be == ##Ask or ##Answer or ##Tell or ##AskFor) rtrue;
This allows PAUL, KISS LAMP to reach Paul's orders property, while preserving the "You can only..." message when the player tries to kiss the lamp.
