Petition ID 768: When doing build jobs, flavour text displays in strange order.
Submitted Sat, 09 Jun 12 23:27:39 +0000

When I do a construction activity (masonry, carpentry, decorating) and complete the job, this is the flavour text that I see:

You set your Backpack and Bandolier aside, grab your tools and get to work.
The warmth from your Builder's Brew makes the stone feel light as a feather!
Before you realise it, the job's done!

After a period of industrious activity, you wipe the sweat from your brow and take a look at how things are shaping up.

Here's everything that's currently unfinished about this place. For each activity, there's a toolbox and a material, except in the case of Decorating where you just need the toolbox. Toolboxes can be rented from Suzie's Hardware in Improbable Central. Your Stamina has to be in the green to do any of these things.


So, that's
1. No weight penalty
2. Brew
3. Job is complete
4. You did some work
5. List current jobs.

Surely 3 and 4 should be the other way around? "You did some work and now the job is done" would seem to make more sense!

Or is the "you did some work" supposed to refer to the remaining build jobs? If so, it would make a little more sense, but still seems confusing to me. Perhaps it means "after this period of industrious activity, you look to see what else needs doing"?


That's what you see when doing the last part of a job. If you do only part of it without running out of stamina, there's no "before you realise it, the job's done" line. And when you run out of stamina, you see this:

You set your Backpack and Bandolier aside, grab your tools and get to work.
The warmth from your Builder's Brew makes this decorating job a trivial matter indeed!
You find yourself getting tired. Thoroughly aware of just how daft it is to do any sort of construction work when you're not completely and totally awake, you set down your tools and decide to take it easy until you're rested again.

After a period of industrious activity, you wipe the sweat from your brow and take a look at how things are shaping up.

Here's everything that's currently unfinished about this place. For each activity, there's a toolbox and a material, except in the case of Decorating where you just need the toolbox. Toolboxes can be rented from Suzie's Hardware in Improbable Central. Your Stamina has to be in the green to do any of these things.


Which is
1. No weight penalty
2. Brew
3. Job not finished
4. You did some work
5. List current jobs
