Relationship Barriers

Relationships can be blocked in five completely different ways:

  • Blocked by a piece of text. Only unlockable through events that remove it or hide the barrier.

  • Blocked by a character, who must be killed via either adjacent room.

  • Blocked by some conditions, which can be a lot of really random things and add a lot of flexibility.

  • Requires a certain type of key to access it. In this case if you have the key you can get through, if you don't you can't.

  • Has a Door, which can be locked or unlocked by a certain type of key.


    Keys also have several systems:

  • Keys can lock or unlock doors

  • Keys can lock or unlock containers

  • Lockpicks can lock/unlock doors, containers, and vehicles.

    Things I want to do

  • Lock tiers so that a certain type of key can:

  • lock/unlock multiple types of locks

  • lock/unlock multiple types of containers

  • allow access to multiple relationships.

  • Consumable keys. These unlock locks and then disappear forever. The lockpick system can currently do this but with consumable keys they could be tied to specific locks.

    Nature is beautiful

    Something that I think I noticed but would have to actually test to confirm is I think door locks are one-sided?

    So say you have Room 1 and Room 2

    If I lock the door from Room 1, I can't go through... But people from Room 2 can still go through to Room 1.

    Seemed a bit odd that it would work that way.
