# In-Game Mail system¶

Contribution by grungies1138 2016

A simple Brandymail style mail system that uses the Msg class from Evennia Core. It has two Commands for either sending mails between Accounts (out of game) or between Characters (in-game). The two types of mails can be used together or on their own.

• CmdMail - this should sit on the Account cmdset and makes the mail command available both IC and OOC. Mails will always go to Accounts (other players).

• CmdMailCharacter - this should sit on the Character cmdset and makes the mail command ONLY available when puppeting a character. Mails will be sent to other Characters only and will not be available when OOC.

• If adding both commands to their respective cmdsets, you’ll get two separate IC and OOC mailing systems, with different lists of mail for IC and OOC modes.

## Installation:¶

Install one or both of the following (see above):

• CmdMail (IC + OOC mail, sent between players)

# mygame/commands/default_cmds.py

from evennia.contrib.game_systems import mail

# in AccountCmdSet.at_cmdset_creation:

• CmdMailCharacter (optional, IC only mail, sent between characters)

# mygame/commands/default_cmds.py

from evennia.contrib.game_systems import mail

# in CharacterCmdSet.at_cmdset_creation:


Once installed, use help mail in game for help with the mail command. Use ic/ooc to switch in and out of IC/OOC modes.
