    Hi everyone. In my game, the player has to drop an item when in a specific zone. Is there any way for me to code that the player can drop the item only when in a specific zone,i.e when touching an object? Thanks!

    You have your usual collision functions like place_meeting and the such.
    Code:
    if (place_meeting(x, y, obj_zone))
    {
      // drop code
    }
    
    or use the collision event with obj_zone and write your drop code there.
