POSTOFFICE CUSTOMISATION - Imperian Online Help

3.12.1 POSTOFFICE CUSTOMISATION

Players are able to customise the sent and delivery messages of their Post Office addon to add a bit more of a unique look. House Owners, Guildmasters, Towne Governors and the Chancellor Ministry can customise their own particular PostOffice. 

It costs 50,000 gold sovereigns per approval (gold is returned on rejection). When you submit your customised postal messages it will be marked for review by the administration.

Customisations allow for the use of variables that can be expanded to use the player's name. The variables that can be expanded are:
   name$               - Name of the person sending the letter
   his$/him$/he$       - Gender specific pronouns for name$

   lname$              - Name of the person receiving the letter
   lhis$/lhim$/lhe$    - Gender specific pronouns for lname$

POSTOFFICE SHOW
- This command allows you to echo the current postal design as well as show you the current proposed changes. 

POSTOFFICE SENDER 1P <new description>        - 1st Person POV
POSTOFFICE SENDER 3P <new description>        - 3rd Person POV
- The SENDER messages are displayed when a player uses the MAIL verb when sending a letter to a player. 1st Person POV will display the message to the person doing the Mailing action, while 3rd Person POV is shown to everyone else in the room.

POSTOFFICE DELIVER 1P <new description>       - 1st Person POV
POSTOFFICE DELIVER 3P <new description>       - 3rd Person POV
- The DELIVER messages are displayed when a player receives a sent letter. 1st Person POV will display the message to the person receiving the letter, while 3rd Person POV is shown to everyone else in the room.
(Note: name$ will return the receiver's name and not the senders.)

POSTOFFICE SUBMIT
- After you have customised your postal messages appropriately, make sure you are holding 50,000 gold sovereigns and send your design in for approval. You will be notified if your design is successful.

EXAMPLES:
SENDER 1P: "You give a letter to a brown fox and send it after $(lname$)."
SENDER 3P: "$+(name$) gives a letter to a brown fox and sends it after $(lname$)."

DELIVER 1P: "A quick brown fox finds you and hands a letter to you."
DELIVER 3P: "A quick brown fox finds $(name$) and hands a letter to $(him$)."
