Tool drop change

When you run out the door, your tools are dropped, but they vanish now instead of being added to the vault of the house you're robbing.

This makes transferring tools between accounts far less convenient.

Re: Tool drop change

Man.... I really missed the boat here!

Why can't you just transfer tools to a dummy account by reaching the vault of the dummy account?

The thinking was that it would be a pain, because you'd simultaneously get everything from the second account's vault.... BUT... if it's a dummy account, it might as well have $0 in the vault.

So.... back to tools vanishing when you reach the vault as well?  It doesn't make thematic sense....

Re: Tool drop change

Yeah, so going into the archives, I see that the current rules are there to prevent a dummy account from passing wealth TO a main account (by dumping tools and running out the door).  Reaching the vault of your main account with your dummy account would be a pain, because then the dummy account would steal money from the main account.

But they don't prevent tool transfer in the other direction (the main account doesn't mind grabbing some tools and reaching the dummy vault to give the dummy some tools).

Hmm...

Re: Tool drop change

perhaps a compromise.. some tools get broken when the successful robber gets super excited at reaching the vault, and just throws their backpack at the ground in triumph!

the throw to the ground completely squashes the bottom half of the backpack, rendering 50% of all tools dropped useless.
example: reach vault with 10 saws and 4 water. vault receives 5 saws and 2 water

it wont stop tool transfer, but it will make it very expensive!

Re: Tool drop change

As I said in the exploit page, nothing is going to stop tool transfer as it is simply a matter of robbing the vault of the house you want to grab them from or suiciding a dummy in the safe house. All of these measures to stop it are pretty much pointless.

Re: Tool drop change

keep trying though, this will pop up alot, and its better to find a fix rather then having to try to admin it.
