Actionable Properties

Below are Actionable Properties that object types can have. All Properties below have an associated Action that can be called on the Object (ie: If an object type is Openable, the OpenObject and CloseObjectactions can be used on the object type.)

  • Openable - These objects can be opened or closed using the OpenObject and CloseObject actions. Receptacles that are Openable allow for objects to be placed inside them.
  • Pickupable - These objects are able to be picked up or put down into Receptacles by the Agent using the PickupObject and PutObject actions. Picked up objects can also be dropped using DropHandObject which will remove the object from the Agent’s hand without needing a target receptacle. Throw is an extension of dropping an object, where an additional force is added to throw object about the scene. Pickupable objects can also be shoved around using the Push and Pull actions. Some Receptacle objects are also pickupable. Any objects placed inside a pickupable receptacle are moved all at once, so complex sequences like (Put Apple on Plate -> Move Plate with Apple to Sink) are possible.
  • On/Off - Interact with these objects using the ToggleObjectOn and ToggleObjectOff actions. All On/Off objects have a visible state change that occurs when toggled on or off (ie: laptop screen will be on with an image or blank when off).
  • Receptacle - These objects are classified as Receptacles, meaning that other objects can be placed on or in them if the other object can physically fit the Receptacle. Some receptacles are restricted specific objects (ie:ToiletPaper is the only type that can go on a ToiletPaperHanger). Note that any Receptacles that are also Pickupable can be moved about the scene with any Sim Objects they actively contain.
  • Fillable - These objects can be filled with various liquids using the FillObjectWithLiquid action. Fillable objects can be filled with Water, Coffee, or Wine. Some fill interactions are context sensative, like placing a mug in a Coffee Maker object that is turned On will automatically fill the mug with coffee. If an object is Filled with one of the liquid types and is rotated greater than 90 degrees from the global upward axis, the object will automatically empty itself because the liquid has “spilled.”
  • Sliceable - These objects can be sliced into smaller pieces using the SliceObject action. This destroys the source object and spawns in multiple “sliced” pieces of the source object in the exact same location. This is a one-way state change, so only a scene reset will revert sliced objects to their whole versions. Sliced objects will still report metadata information even after being destroyed. This allows you to check the last position the source object was before the Slice action finished.
  • Cookable - These objects have a cooked state that can be switched to with the CookObject action. This is a one-way state change, so only a scene reset will revert cooked objects back to their uncooked state.
  • Breakable - These objects have a broken state that can be switched to with the BreakObject action. This is a one-way state change, so only a scene reset will revert broken objects to their unbroken state. Breakable objects also break automatically if they collide with a high enough force. This force threshold is different between objects because some objects are more fragile than others.
  • Dirty - These objects have a Clean and Dirty state that can be toggled between using the DirtyObject action. This includes objects like Mugs that can have grime on them, or a Bed that has the covers messy or made. Certain Dirty objects can contextually be switched to their clean state if they are moved under running water. (Dirty bowl moved under a Faucet that is on will clean the bowl automatically).
  • UsedUp - These objects can have parts of themselves used up with the UseUp action. This is a one-way interaction and can not be reversed unless the scene is reset. This can change the overall look of the object to show that its contents have been “Used Up.” Toilet Paper, Tissue Boxes, and Paper Towels are examples of objects that when Used Up, change form in some way.

Table Key:

  • YES - This object type has this property
  • no - This object type does not have this property
  • Sometimes - Some objects within this type category have this property, but not all are guaranteed to have it. (ie: Bowls can be Plastic, Glass, or Ceramic. Only Glass and Ceramic Bowls can Break).
