Proposal: Stuff

Quorum Reached. Passes 9-1—Clucky

Adminned at 14 Aug 2021 01:32:38 UTC

Add the following available types of Machine to the list in “Machines”:

Compactor
* Cost: one or more Things
* Effect: Gain a Box containing the number of Things used to activate this Machine.

Printer
* Cost: one Box
* Effect: Gain a number of Things called Paper equal to half the value of the Box used to activate this Machine (rounded up).

Wastebin
* Cost: one Energy
* Effect: Gain up to four Things, each with one of the following names at random: Ashtray, Boot, Candle, Dust, Earplug, Fishbone, Gum, Hair, Insect, Jamjar, Kettle, Lint, Mitten, Napkin, Odor, Pushpin, Quilt, Razor, Sponge, Toy, Umbrella, Valve, Whisk, Xylophone, Yardstick, Ziploc.

having some fun with Things!!! Compactor is a place to dump unwanted Things; Printer is an inefficient way to make Paper, presumably that stuff is useful; and Wastebin is a way to get a lot of Things quickly, but they’re all junk.

Compactor should require spending at least one Thing – otherwise it’s an incredibly cheap source of 0-boxes, which are pretty useful at present (e.g. you can use them to purchase Machines that take boxes as input).

“Box containing things” worries me a bit, in part because it might be an easy way to get past storage limits and in bigger part because boxes need to have a value and this one doesn’t.

[Clucky] Boxes are defined as containing numbers: this is just saying to set that number to “number of Things used to activate this Machine”.
