Update #59 - 05/24/2018 Edit

New Inventory UI Edit

  • Updated theme/look
  • Now scales correctly based on the the screen resolution
  • Damage bar is displayed for items that have health
  • Tooltip updated with a lot more information - damage amounts, bleed chance, resistances, etc.
  • Scrollable inventory list
  • Mouse wheel works to scroll inventory and lists - can also scroll while dragging an icon
  • Tooltips will no longer go offscreen
  • Context menus and tooltips windows dynamically adjust their size as needed

Environmental Changes Edit

The game is now aware of the area a player is in and evaluates a shelter value (how much protection you receive from the area from weather).

The following types of areas are detected:

  • Insides of houses and bases as well as areas partly inside
  • Ocean, rivers and seas you can dive into
  • Sewers, caves, cellars and bunkers
  • Vehicles

The radstorm is deadly when you are not seeking shelter or have protective items equipped or consumed.

Radiation areas are detectable with a Geiger counter or noticeable by a slightly blue glow. Stock up on anti-rad pills, anti-rad mushrooms or potassium-iodine pills before entering known radiation areas.

You can check item details and differences in your inventory tooltips by hovering over them.

Anti-rad pills, anti-rad mushrooms or potassium-iodine pills help against radiation.

The environment protection effects scale with the health of the item, this can be checked in the UI.

Other environmental stats on items include:

  • Physical (Tornado, Collisions, Fall damage)
  • Gas Smoke (Gas Grenades and areas)
  • Blindness (Flashbang)
  • Fire (Molotov, Fire areas)
  • Explosions (Grenades, Exploding vehicles)
  • Feet sharp (Punji traps)
  • Ray radiations (very little protection against that even with full hazmat gear; only reduced in sheltered areas if the area isn't causing the effect itself)

Additional to the environmental stats which apply to the player in general, body part protection stats exist which are also be output in the UI.

For relevant protective types there is differentiation of what is causing it (e.g. ground based, rain based, gas based).

Future work: Temperature, Acid, Electricity, Wetness/Humidity, Rain, Fire area revamp.

Changed behavior of radiation stats:

  • Additional radiation received after 100% gets converted to damage
  • Radiation slowly is healed (25% per hour), but only up to 40% of it
  • Radiation reduces now up to 25% of your max health until cured
  • While over 85% radiation you start to slowly lose health and can't heal until the radiation is cured first

Going underwater in the middle of a radiation storm protects against its negative effects.
