HERE'S A CLUE: It's going to make Places Programming about a hundred times more useful, especially when you use it with the Run Other Program Contraption.

That's the essence of the escape hatch really, isn't it, especially if used with the 'Run Program' contraption. IF conditions pass THEN procede to next line of program ELSE go to escape hatch.

Um, let's see now.
Is it comparison of memories? That's the best I can come up with, unless it's a device which gets your computer to brew a cup of tea for when you get up in the morning. Razz

My big wish would be for something to stop showing the page description for the page that you're on.

Can't wait to find out.

By the way, I've just gone into my Place and had a quick look at the master settings. Big Grin Me like new settings for rooms. I suspect others will as well.

Yeah but you can't exactly do very complicated programs in the escape hatch.

I was about to say the Escape hatch had limited execution with only the only slot, but then I realized you could just put a Run Program in there and all of a sudden I want to get back to programming...

If it's what I just found in the Master Settings page - CMJ, I fucking love you. I'd thought I was going to have to buy so many extra programming rows!

Well with the new 'Run program' Contraptions you'd have only had to build the programs once each, and then just put said Contraptions everywhere you wanted to use them. But yes. It's still pretty cool.

Back to the subject on hand. Just what thiiiiing is CMJ dooooing?

Still no ideas. Still can't wait.

I'm just sleepy enough to have the brakes come off my nonsense-rambling-control centre, while still being awake enough to think reasonably coherently, so ... here's a load of guesses! Which are probably all totally wrong and irrelevant, but at least then they can be eliminated from the guessing!

You're going to make programs that can apply to a Place, rather than to a Player in a Place?
You're going to let the Escape Hatch be movable side-to-side on each row, so that we can make it do two-or-more things on the far side of the Hatch?
You're going to create an Append Page contraption, that will stick the Page description after the Room description?
You're going to let us use contrivances/aptions straight from the Place Inventory, not having to go to it, take some out, and then to the Programs menu?
You're going to let us buy contrivances/aptions from right in the Program menu, for SP?
You're going to let us reorganise the order that Pages display in, somehow or other?
You're going to make contraptions that check whether/how people have completed in-game story/quests?
You're going to add penguins?

... penguins. I vote penguins.

A CLUE
Hairy Mary will like it, as will other programmery types.

ANOTHER CLUE
It's taking so long because I have to modify quite a few Contraptions and Contrivances.

A FURTHER CLUE
Not pengins sorry

YESSSS. You can have an empty Room that nobody goes in, and you can fill it with Pages and Programs, and that's like a lib file.

A lib file that you can walk around in.
