Inventory:

The inventory will be used to hold certain items, batteries, puzzle items, clues and more. The space in the inventory is limited, and you must choose which items to carry with you, you may have to sacrifice batteries or clues to hold puzzle items, and vice versa. The inventory will also hold information about the battery level on the flash light, so you know when you need to change batteries, the dead batteries will also take up some inventory space, unless you find a place to charge them, you can discard them to save space.

Difficulty levels:

GPS/Phone:

The phone will act as a GPS and a custom clue holder, you can write custom notes on the phone to track certain clues which aren't automatically tracked (notes are automatically tracked, solutions, drawings and photos are not). Same as the flash light, the phone has limited battery, and must be charged or find extra batteries. The GPS will use a dynamic texture mapped onto a 3D object, the GPS location (and texture) will be updated once every 2 seconds, to save computer power, if you want, you can turn of the dynamic texture and instead use a static 2D map (no GPS) instead. The GPS can also be configured to update at a different rate, depending on if you have a fast or slow computer. Objectives will not be tracked on the map, but you can add way points with notes, to remember what was at a location, or what you need to do at a certain location.
