Uses

If you have one of these installed in your dwelling, a "Window:" line will appear on your character profile with a link to it. Clicking on the link to "Fake Christmas Tree" in a player's profile gives a message, the beginning of which varies depending on how many ornaments are on the tree:

ChristmasTree.jpg

With no ornaments:

<Player's/Your> tree is completely undecorated, lending it something of a quaint charm.

With 1-9(?) ornaments:

<Player's/Your> tree is decorated with <list of ornaments>.

With 10-19 items:

<Player's/Your> tree is well-decorated with <list of ornaments>.

With 20-29 items:

<Player's/Your> tree is covered with Christmas cheer in the form of <list of ornaments>.

With 30-? items:

<Player's/Your> tree is heavily laden with Christmas cheer. <Player has/You have> <list of ornaments>.

With ?-45-? items (probably 40-49):

<Player's/Your> tree is dripping with decorations, like <list of ornaments>.

With ?-50-74 items:

<Player's/Your> tree is straining under the weight of Christmas cheer. <Player has/You have> <list of ornaments>.

With 75-99 items:

<Player's/Your> tree bows under the weight of <list of ornaments>.

With 100-? items:

<Player's/Your> tree is barely up to the herculean task of supporting <list of ornaments>.

Or, if the player is Kinak or puyo:

<Kinak's/puyo's> tree glows with unearthly light.

The creepy charcoal sketch takes priority in your window if you have both.

The rest of the message lists the number and type of ornaments on the tree, from most to least numerous. Items that a player has equal numbers of are displayed in item ID order. (?) Possible ornaments (in item ID order) are:
