Brighten up any room and show off your wealth with a myriad of furniture sets. Impress your friends and family while making your enemies jealous!
To become a professional carpenter, you must be trained by the craft guild of a major city. Go to the craft guild office and BUY FURNITURE PERMIT. The craft guild assesses a fee of 100 credits for the permit, which does not expire. Once a licensed carpenter, you will have basic ability in the Furniture miniskill. The more you train in this skill, the higher quality your products will be.
To create a piece of furniture you need to purchase a design and the required components to make the desired item. Once you have these simply CONSTRUCT to make your piece.
Once you are Expert in the skill of Furniture, you will gain the ability to design your own furniture pieces. This process is a bit more involved:
1. Purchase a blank design from your local crafting guild office.
2. Acquire a furniture design of the same type as the item you wish to create then simply do DESIGN COPY. This will make a copy of the existing design onto your blank design.
3. Customize your design's appearance when held, when viewed in a room, and when examined closely:
DESIGN APPEARANCE , DESIGN DROPPED , DESIGN EXAMINED . DESIGN EXAMINED EDIT
Also, you will need to define certain properties such as max people (the total amount of people that can sit/lie on the object at the same time), max weight(the total combined weight of items that can be PLACEed on top of it), and max chairs/drawers(the number of chairs that can be POSITIONed at the object/the number of drawers the object has.) As well as a HUNG description for those items that require it.
For these options use the following commands:
DESIGN MAX PEOPLE DESIGN MAX WEIGHT DESIGN MAX CHAIRS DESIGN DRAWERS DESIGN DRAWER_DESC DESIGN HUNG
4. Take your design to a craft guild office and DESIGN SUBMIT it for evaluation. The craft guild will review your design and once approved you will be notified. After it has been approved and you have paid the fee for it you may then begin to construct the design.
For further DESIGN commands and their uses refer to HELP PAPERLESS CRAFTING. Also refer to HELP FURNITURE INTERACTION for special commands related specifically to furniture items.
