Message Drone - a mob which can be used to send items and messages to other
players in the game. Please use RP sense when using these mobs. Sending items
to players in jails is considered bad form and the practice if caught will be
punished. Also, sending active explosives by way of message drones is illegal
and constitutes a slay to the offending party.
Using a Message Drone -
First, you must CALL a message drone. Using the call command, type 'call
message drone'. Once it arrives, you can use a datapad (See: HELP DATAMEM) to
create a message disk that is addressed to the name of the person you wish to
send the drone to, then eject that disk from your datapad. Once the disk is
ready, give all the items to the drone that you wish to send, and then give the
disk to the drone. It is VERY important that all items are given to the drone
before the disk is handed over, the act of giving the disk to the drone will
cause it to immediately go to the person specified in the TO field on the
NOTE: If sending multiples of the same item, it is advised that said items be
put inside of a bag before sending. If sending credits, inform the receipient
that they must destroy the drone, as the drone will not be able to give
specific amounts to the recipient.
Receiving a Message Drone -
When you receive a message drone, the drone itself will give you all of the
items it was carrying, as well as the message disk. This makes the drones
useful for carrying not only items, but messages too.
WARNING: Message drones will only go to those currently on a planet. Anyone on
a ship will not receive a message drone until they have landed on a planet and
left their ship, so make sure that your recipient is in a place where they can
receive it. Also, in the event of a crash, the drone will be lost during
transit along with the items it was transporting. We will not reimburse you.
