Game Development: Louse Bites

Postby jorb » Mon Sep 10, 2018 11:57 pm

We've been developing, and here's what's new.

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Added a new system for wounds and their treatments. Treatments, as a general rule, no longer consume wounds and replace them entirely with a treatment effect, but rather add a treatment effect to wound, leaving it intact "underneath". This has a number of implications.
    • Wounds will still, even when treated, count and be relevant for combinations to new and more severe wounds when you receive new wounds from taking damage. They will also retain negative effects during treatment.
    • Each treatment, when applied, now applies a treatment factor to the wound, dependent on the quality of the treatment applied, which reduces the reactivity of the wound -- i.e. the likelihood of it wanting to combine with incoming new wounds to create more severe wounds -- by the treatment factor percentage.
    • Most treatments have been reworked in some way to fit into this new system. Their effects may differ from what they have been historically. Concussion, for example, now splits into multiple wounds, each of which can have a cold compress applied.
    • Existing treatment wounds will disappear as soon as the server has a chance to tick them.
    • There is only a very mild ambition here to make wounds nastier than they have been. We're not exactly sure how much this changes, so hold off on the real raeg until we have a chance to iterate on your feedback.
  • Added "Cave Louse", creature.
  • Added a skeleton to Bears.

As always, if you liked what we did here: Support the patch.

Today's Patch Item, for the fair price of $10, is the "Saucepan Hat".

-----------------------

UPDATE YOUR CLIENTS... if you want the wound lists to display decently.

Enjoy!

So if Concussion splits into different wounds, does this means that hearthlings have multiple nerve centers and basically are not mammals but some kind of weird worms?

At all, or some specific one? All the ones I tested worked, but it's possible I might have made a mistake in some specific interaction.
