So this is something that I've known about for a while (and corrected in my own mod) but I thought I'd report it here all the same in the hopes that it either gets fixed or we get some clarification on what penalties various injuries actually apply. The injuries in question are: Bruised Ribs, Concussion, Sprained Wrist, Swollen Eye, and Twisted Ankle. These entries can be found in cyclopedia.stringtable and their ID's are: 126, 128, 130, 132, and 134. Example #1 - Bruised Ribs: The cyclopedia entry for Bruised Ribs states: But after looking in the game files (AFF_BruisedRibs in statuseffects.gamedatabundle) a more accurate description would be: ...as the character receive no penalty to Constitution by getting the Bruised Ribs affliction, but rather, a penalty to their Fortitude defense is applied instead. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In order to keep this post fairly short I'll just conclude by saying that the example above holds true for the rest of the listed injuries. None of them apply the effect described in their cyclopedia entries. So my question is this: is the cyclopedia entry wrong or am I missing something in the game files? If so, maybe you should consider re-wording the cyclopedia entries for the mentioned injuries lest you run the risk of (unnecessarily) confusing players whom might try and figure out what penalty they can expect from which injury.
Hi, I just went to the Sandswept Ruins (southwest island of the world map) and entered the room with the altar that's sourrounded by flames. Because I'm wearing Rekvu's Scorched Cloak plus an injury (which turns all burn damage into healing and makes you basically immune) I thought I'd try and just step on the flames. I injured although I received 0 damage. I suspect that all traps will show that behaviour: causing injuries even though they can't deal any damage?
Yo! So, this is an idea I've been thinking about and have posted in several of the "Healing" and "Injuries" threads that has come and gone. I think it is a fairly basic idea that could be simple to execute. If you know my sort of thread of thought, you should know I enjoy a good challenge, which this idea caters fully too. There are several methods I have in mind, so let me get on with it. The first 2 examples are an "easy" injury to implement. Scenario 1: The "Chaotic" Version (Based on Luck) 1. You are in a fight, the enemy scores that Critical Hit (that one which you learn to "hate") 2. Your character loses an eye, and is penalized with -1 Accuracy for the rest of the game. Scenario 2: The "Treatable" Version (Still based on Luck but can be treated) 1. You are in a fight, the enemy scores that Critical Hit 2. Your character is on the verge of losing and eye unless treated. 3. You have a potion, bandages or whatnot, close to a Camp Site, and can rest and your character does not lose an eye (thus no penalty) How would this be presented? Would the character model change? No, not at all. The simplest method I can think of would be a text line in the "Records" tab: See "Free Action" and "Haste"? Replace that with "Injury: Eye-loss" or something. The more difficult version I can think of... it would be "Arm-loss". Because that would affect the Inventory screen as well. Take this picture below, it would nullify one arm (let's say the "Right" arm). I haven't photoshoped the picture but I think you get the picture I am conveying, basically putting an "X" or greying out the Arm if affected by a Permanent Injury. Again, the character model (paperdoll) wouldn't need to change (the character model and paperdoll would still have 2 arms but can only equip items to one), because I believe we, the majority of gamers/humans, fill in the blanks with our imagination. Thoughts?
