 Possible Bug with Desk Work
Author: Knight Captain 
Date:   11-10-16 02:48

Using the 2016-08-22 build, Desk Work does not work correctly compared to the original game. NPCs will not put desk items on the desks, but only on tables. I also have not seen sealing wax be dropped at all. Setting an NPC to do so at the Serpent's Fang armory area desk also shows this behavior.

Recreatable: Yes
Start a new game in SI, teleport to Fawn's Great Captain's desk area.

It also looks like NPCs can get hung if they don't have a close enough table to drop items and turn off a light source. This can happen at Isstanar's unused desk in Exult.

Also might be cool to put in a check for being above/below ground and then what hours for turning out the lights.

can you add this as a bug report?
I think we have not coded in the wax to be generated and it *could* be that it is not listed as a desk item.

A little fiddling today. It's true that we weren't placing items or picking them up from the desk itself, and that's fixed now.

We do create sealing wax. It's random, so you might not see it that often.

I also checked that the NPC will open the shutters during the day. Maybe we don't search far enough for street lights.

Thank you DrCode!!

The only issue I've seen with streetlights was with the Structure of Order automaton trying to turn on a Serpent Lamppost and it crashing the game. I was testing my Usecode so it may not be a real issue.
