become

#become is a ZZT-OOP command that lets an object become a different kind of element.

The syntax is #become color element. The color argument is optional. While the element argument is supposed to be mandatory, an empty string is treated as equivalent to a board edge. Providing an invalid element name will throw a Bad #BECOME error.

Bugs

  • Unlike other commands, #become color object will always destroy and create a new stat, clearing the object's character and source code.
    • The typical workaround for changing object colors is to use #change or #put instead.
