Suggestions / Re: Water treatment plant mutie experiments version
« on: July 23, 2022, 04:33:01 pm »
The Water Treatment Plant is supposed to be somewhat-early content that you can do either pre-Depot A or soon after Depot A, toxic gas at that point in the game is probably too soon.

Constitution's problem is that with how much random bullshit can catch you out of the blue (traps, lots of enemies, crawlers, other stealthy enemies) most people would rather savescum and try again to strike with overwhelming force. The addition of veteran feats in Expedition probably caused people to dump it even more because of feats that require more than 10 points in a base stat, so points that could've been used to round up the character rather than squeeze +9% damage are now used for +10 AP on Sprint. "Can openers" like several kinds of psionic spells make it even less enticing to pick up, the best defense is not getting hit at all and you don't get hit at all by killing the enemy as soon as possible and abusing corners that break line of sight, something tanky Constitution builds generally can't rely on as much compared to more lethal and more mobile builds.

"Easy" is a rather subjective term  ;D

A lot of the feats need squashing, not just because they're wasteful but also because that way they're actually considered worth picking over another point in Critical Power. Most could do with their effects down to 2-3.

If it happens in Hexagon then I wonder if it will be before or after the events of Underrail.

Didn't know it would be possible to make crawlers more horrifying than they already are, and these are just the regular variant!

"Specimens that are", not "specimen are"

Rogue space between "G." and "Vasilica"

I recall that this one has one extra space before "G." but I cannot remember, or maybe it's missing a space between "G." and "Vasilica".

Technically chatlogs have a valid reason to contain typos but double-spacing is rare

Needs space between "it." and "A"

General / Infusion unarmed combat
« on: May 06, 2022, 03:13:34 am »
With Infusion and its far more flexible animation capability would it be possible to have unarmed combat with really cool moves like roundhouse kicks or slamming characters' heads against walls and objects, and various wrestling moves like clotheslines and elbow drops? It's like an opportunity waiting to happen to make unarmed combat very cool-looking and fleshed out.

Bugs / Protectorate spy ending bug
« on: April 24, 2022, 05:42:25 pm »
Outing the spy in the Free Drones and ending the game without finishing the Free Drones questline still mentions "Free Drones remained constant nuisance, however... With a Protectorate spy in their midst, even more so than before." in the Protectorate ending slide

The wiki suffers from this too.

Oh yeah that sounds like an oversight if the bigger crabs aren't supposed to drop those

Also, I don't think anyone in the history of the game has ever fully specialized Pack Rathound to 10 points, it should be 5 points for +10 carrying weight at the very least

"Viva la RevoluciĆ³n" - Finish the Free Drones questline
"Do You Feel Like a Hero Yet?/Peace Through Superior Firepower" - Finish the Protectorate questline
"Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog" - Put a certain man you condemned to a fate worse than death out of his suffering.
"Research and Development" - Finish the Coretech questline
"Cloak & Dagger" - Finish the JKK questline
"Order Through Strength" - Finish the Praetorian Security questline
"Out Of The Pan And Into The..." - Retrieve the Armadillo Class Drill Rotor Circuit Board
"I Like The Way It Sucks" - Finish the game on any difficulty
"I Wish It Would Suck More!" - Finish the game on DOMINATING! difficulty
"My Precious..." - Sell an item with a value of over 15000
"Lodsemone" - Have 20000 Charons in your inventory
"Unused Jet Skis Dealer" - Sell a highly valuable jet ski to Ray
"Now This Is Jet Racing!" - Mount 2 engines on the Torpedo
"Tomb Raider" - Finish the Aegis questline
"Cause A Pirate is Free" - Finish the Pirate questline.
"Hackerman" - Meet a certain old hacker
"Beast Of The Apocalypse" - Kill the Beast
"I Pull Out My Wizard Hat" - Wear Sergio's hat
"Super Super Steel" - Give Super Steel Refinery Data to Bernard
"Man of Super Steel" - Resist more than 300 damage from a single attack
"The Enemy Of My Enemy Is My Enemy" - Enrage 50 characters
"MacGyver" - Craft 50 items
"I Dominated The Game And All I Got Was This Lousy Achievement" - Unlock all other achievements

It has very little reason to be picked up because not only can the player simply manage their inventory better but there already are several ways of increasing carrying weight capacity and 50 is insignificant for high-strength builds. If it were to prevent you from getting completely encumbered (capping it instead at heavily encumbered) it would be extremely useful for the actual hoarders this feat panders to that want to take everything not nailed down because they don't have to make several return trips.
