Problem with potions

So, I tried to add a 'bottle of milk' to the game. I first added a new liquid to material.dat and defined it in define.dat and then I added the liquid in the following code:

potion /* materialcontainer-> */
{
  DefaultSize = 30;
  Possibility = 800;
  WeaponCategory = BLUNT_WEAPONS;
  Category = POTION;
  DefaultMainVolume = 60;
  DefaultSecondaryVolume = 1000;
  StrengthModifier = 50;
  BitmapPos = 0, 160;
  FormModifier = 25;
  NameSingular = "bottle";
  MainMaterialConfig == GLASS;
  SecondaryMaterialConfig = { 12, WATER, MILK, HEALING_LIQUID, OMMEL_URINE, POISON_LIQUID, VALDEMAR, ANTIDOTE_LIQUID, VODKA, TROLL_BLOOD, OMMEL_SWEAT, OMMEL_TEARS, SULPHURIC_ACID; }
  MaterialConfigChances = { 12, 100, 55, 75, 5, 50, 1, 10, 5, 25, 5, 5, 25; }
  Alias = { 2, "potion", "drink"; }
  Roundness = 70;
  CanBeBroken = true;
  AttachedGod = NONE;
  WieldedBitmapPos = 176, 144;
  IsValuable = false;
  TeleportPriority = 200;
}

The milk is actually working ingame, but for some reason the material last in line (sulphuric acid) isn't ingame anymore, I tried wishing a bottle of sulphuric acid and it doesn't recognize the item.

So, what's going on here?

I'm pretty sure you can't wish for a certain liquid. If you wish for a bottle of something, it'll just give you a bottle with a random liquid. Try wishing for dozens of bottles, i bet you find a sulphuric acid one eventually.

Cap's right. You could however make a sub-category of potion and make it so the only liquid it has is sulphuric acid and then wish for it. You could also do that for milk.

e.g.
  Config POTION_CARTON;
  {
    SecondaryMaterialConfig == MILK;
    Possibility = 10;
    NameSingular = "milk carton";
  }
System would indicate in graphic if person is mounted on horse or not.
Same system also show if person mounted on boar, elephant, polar bear etc.
Or if person mounted on ass.
Ivan find mounting on ass funny.

Though a carton made of glass that looks like a bottle would be kinda weird...

Weirder than an adventurer that gets his arms and legs blown off, and after some rest, just rolls on?

Following on from 4zb4's code, and with regard to the wierdness of the carton made of glass, could the carton be made from Parchment, and have a unique bitmap position (resembling a carton) in the file item.pcx?

e.g.

Config POTION_CARTON;
{
    SecondaryMaterialConfig == MILK;
    Possibility = 10;
    NameSingular = "milk carton";

    BitmapPos = [i]x(milk carton picture)[/i], [i]y(milk carton picture)[/i];
    MainMaterialConfig == PARCHMENT;
}

- Maybe someday there will be a side quest to lure (you would have to polymorph into a mistress) a milkman from the Gloomy Caves back to Attnam to deliver Ommel milk to the Cathedral... resulting in a newborn Bastard Son/Daughter revolutionary born to one of Petruses wives.

- Zombie of a Milkman.

- Perhaps female characters could be programmed to lactate?

Sorry to hijack the thread. In light of capristo's reminder, it would still be cool to create a milk bottle shaped graphic.

Elona's got that territory covered and more. I don't think IVAN needs to do it too.
