Directories are a pretty good QoL introduction to the game, but they need some serious tweaking. Here's what I propose to fix them:
- Tie the DIRECTORY function to be used in a single room in each city - tethered either to that room, or to a directory type object. Aids in RP and introducing people to the system IC.
- Make a city privilege setting that enables/disables the price listing inside the DIRECTORY command. Allow the privilege to specify who can see the price listing inside the command, and offer the option set unique levels of access for the following roles: non-enemies, citizens, minister/governance.
This affords the means for individual states to discern what effect the DIRECTORY command will have on their immediate economies, and also allows for the system to be hinged in some sort of IC object/paradigm as opposed to being a nebulous ENTER THIS AND GET OUTPUT command like it currently is.
