This brings up a thought about torches: Could a feature be incorporated into the game that allows the torch to be blown out, the remainder of the torch being saved for later? It could be useful, but how realistic would it be? The cool thing about this feature would be that it is up to your judgment as to whether you want to do it, as it may fizzle out when you could really use it, and it might be your only torch. Now, it has fizzled, and you're S! O! L!!

When in the flooded area, if you swim to a bank and then light the torch, then reenter the water, the torch will remain lit. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Thomas Ward" <thomasward1...@gmail.com>

Hi Phil,

Phil Said:
When you start the game you should have a torch burning.

Tom Asks:
Why? There is one right there not more than three feet away from you. You can easily grab that one light it, and continue on your way. Just feels a little like overkill to me to have a torch burning when you start.

Phil Said:
When you pick up a torch in your inventory is should be out and hitting enter would
light it.

Tom Says:
I am assuming here you mean when you select it from the inventory list? I suppose we could do that, but I had reasons for not doing it that way. For example, suppose you have a torch when crossing the flooded room. You wouldn't want it to go out when coming in contact with the water. In that case you might want to keep it ready, but not light it until you climb out onto the far bank.At wich point start up the torch.

Phil Asked:
Do torches have a time limit?

Tom Says:
Yes, they do. Depending on your experience level the time limit will be longer or shorter.

Phil Said:
If they do the w key should say torch burning.

Tom Says:
Ok...Well, it does say torch when you are holding one, but I didn't see any need to add if it is burning or not, but I suppose I can.

Phil Said:
If and when the torch goes out it should make a fizzle sound and w would say torch
burnt out.

Tom Says:
Torches do fizzle when they burn out or come into contact with water.
Smile.
