You scratch yourself. What did you catch now?

Recommended Posts

What is the purpose of players acquiring disease from standing on the same tile as another creature?

My character is catching disease when standing on a tile with a personal merchant.

I get it all the time while riding in my cart and nobody but me and my two horses.  I should say - I get it all the time "now that they turned it back on".  Was nice for a few weeks to have no disease.

if the criteria wasnt stay above 90% food to avoid it that would be nice. set it at like 70% anyone not full ccpf or high nutrition are going to have their food drop pretty fast. that doesnt seem reasonable to me since nutrition is hard in the beginning especially. but this is information I was told so not sure if that is prevention limit.

 

On my priest ( we joke she is the plague bringer) as soon as I drop under 90% food she gets diseased almost every time. even at 99 nutrition and the ccpf bars over 80%. She is usually the only one on her tile being the only fo in our sermon group. but as soon as anyone runs through her boom diseased. less of an issue today but I was humid drizzling every half hour the first two days once the patch went live. :P the ones that need it for the journal seems to be almost immune even when starving with low ccpf so theres that.

 

not angry just kinda boggling. I don't remember getting diseased this easy for the 3 months I was playing on independence before moving to cadence. when was it disabled?

Frankly that sounds bugged to hell, in the past getting diseased is pretty uncommon unless u had a really crowded pen and u could get it while grooming.

 

Had a guy who was mining with his cart and horses 2 tiles away come on chat yesterday to ask what the diseased message meant .. so its plainly not working properly.

Yeah i'm getting it all the time hunting, just riding around on a horse i got diseased with nothing else on the tile, and then it clears up while still riding the same horse. Disease does absolutely nothing for a player other than an annoying popup message so idk why they even bothered re-enabling it, just remove it from the journal and the game lol

Disease adds fun to tower construction and bashing alike. Does it even do anything other than the status effect?

^ thats why I said that this is going to be hell on new players. They already get kicked off the learning curve cliff. Retention is abysmal can we not punish them more and drive them off please?

 

also I noticed and this just might be coincidence but the disease tick only seems to happen when the tick to drop you under 90 food happens. everyone starving themselves for the journal? Never get it. but if they give up and eat most get it after food drops to 89. Also having 87 in the ccpf bars and 99 Nutrition and getting diseased is ###### broken.

it has 0 effect on skillgain, things written on the wiki a decade ago with no testing, no numbers and "It has been suggested" being used as a source aren't generally reliable sources of info, even if they are accepted on the wiki  🙃

yeah, i have minimal first hand knowledge to confirm or deny so just stuck it up the flagpole to see if anyone would salute.

 

Tho if its ancient and always wrong why the hell is it still in the wiki? .. i know its all volunteer deal, but .. must try harder hmm.

even the game sends you to the wikki when you do a search. so saying to not use it as a source is counter productive since it is something that is ment to being used as a source. Even if it is wrong. :D just ask them to give real information then or to take it off its untested. Or poke the WU since they code dive they might have a better idea.

CA directs you to the wikki

The GAME directs you to the wikki

dev's direct to the wikki

Game Masters to

 

its a source accurate or not.

@Retrograde clarification would be great please if you can direct someone that can answer if its just cosmetic for players or not this way. it def causes more miscarrages in animals from my experience.

Think of the wiki as a game bible.  It is a book written by many different people and they all get to put things in that they believe to either be true or should be true, but generally isn't always true.

The only effect on players, as far as I'm aware, is faster fat layer loss while diseased - this only kicks in if you fast when diseased.  The primary purpose at the moment is to allow you to complete the journal.

 

(Player) disease is on the list for rework to be turned into something more useful and interesting, but it's mostly a place-holder for now.
