Extinguish(But Don't Waste) Cigars/Cigarettes


Recommended Posts

GAME: Something comes up. You need to put your cigarette/cigar out, or you've got to go into a place where you can't smoke. What do you do? Stomp out the cigarette.

REAL LIFE: Something comes up. You need to put your cigarette/cigar out, or you've got to go into a place where you can't smoke. What do you do? Extinguish it and save the rest for later.

Why is this a problem?
Well, cigarettes and cigars are expensive in actuality. In SS13, even more so. I find it unlikely that characters would just flamboyantly waste every cigarette or cigar they paid 200 credits for on the pack just because something came up. How would you do this?

Replace the current extinguish with text describing them putting it out on the sole of their shoe. The cigarette/cigar is put out, but still able to be smoked until it is truly a butt. Allow people to extinguish their cigar/cigarette in an ashtray, but also to retrieve it for reignition later.

Or make it so that intent matters. If you use help intent when you extinguish a cigar/cigarette in an ashtray/on your shoe, it saves the cigarette. Harm intent puts it out entirely in either scenario, retaining the current drop and stomp or regular extinguishing.
