Feature Friday - August 7th, 2020


  • Examining artifacts now requires being able to move your extremities.
  • Eating snacks now requires being able to move your extremities.
  • The "HP warning threshold" option now defaults to on at 40%.
  • Various powered items, such as VISAGEs and ninefold boots, now correctly drain the last dram of their slotted liquid-fueled energy cells rather than leaving behind one unusable dram. If you find more items that do this, please report them on the public bug tracker: https://bitbucket.org/bbucklew/cavesofqud-public-issue-tracker/issues.
  • NPCs attempting to use broken and rusted tonics no longer cause messages popups for the player. NPCs also attempt to use broken and rusted tonics less often.
  • Creatures are more willing to enter gas clouds, especially if they are immune to the gas.
  • Stunning Force can no longer be used on the world map.
  • Slumberlings are no longer Wakeful when they emerge from their natural hibernation.
  • Item naming opportunities triggered by leveling up now occur after the level up message.
  • Nullbeards are now permanently astrally tethered rather than immune to astral tethering or burdening.
  • Puffer fungi once again take damage from damaging gases at the rate inanimate objects do.
  • Frozen energy cells slotted into equipment no longer stay frozen forever.
  • Implanting a cybernetic implant now makes it permanently understood. If it was only understood due to a techscanning ability, losing that ability no longer converts it to an implanted "weird artifact".
  • Strip flies now respect phase and flight.
  • Psionic weapons can no longer be disassembled.
  • Items are now automatically weightless when equipped in a Floating Nearby slot.
  • Autogetting from adjacent squares is now controlled by an option: "Autopickup from adjacent squares". It defaults to off and only covers non-autoexplore movement.
  • You're now interrupted in the middle of autogetting multiple items when a hostile creature nears you (rather than being slammed by multiple enemy actions afterward).
  • Whether you immediately pick up items butchered from corpses is now determined by your autoget settings, not by whether you were autoexploring.
  • Pathfinding now avoids mines laid and bombs set by non-hostile creatures, to varying degrees by munition type.
  • Added a new option, "Prerelease Stage Scale", in the Overlay UI section.
  • Fixed a bug that broke mod tinkering when certain items had high-powered magnets applied to them.
  • Fixed a bug caused the Wakeful effect to not work sometimes.
  • Fixed a bug that disabled measures to prevent inappropriate objects from spawning on top of each other.
  • Fixed a bug that made Flexiweaved sometimes give positive DV.
  • Fixed some bugs that caused equipping certain items to fail to trigger their state changes, such as quest completion and DV updates for defensive stance.
  • Fixed a bug that caused save modifiers provided by cybernetic implants to not work.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the liquid-cooled item mod to be unapplyable in some cases where it should have been applyable.
  • Fixed a bug that destroyed cybernetics when another implant was implanted directly in its slot.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the value of cybernetics credit wedges to not show up in the short version of their display names.
  • Fixed a color pattern typo in Ereshkigal's interface.
  • Fixed a typo in a journal accomplishment.
  • Fixed a stray color markup tag in save modifier rules text.
  • Fixed some grammar bugs in the descriptions of hostile clones.
  • [modding] Specifications for DefaultBehavior attributes in Bodies.xml part elements are now correctly respected.
  • [modding] Fixed a bug that made less information available in some movement-related events than should have been.

201.8 - beta

  • Mechanical cherubim are now classified as robots.
  • Villages and chef ovens should no longer let you cook game-breaking meals.
  • The schematics choices for acquiring Tinker I, Tinker II, and Tinker III are now of the appropriate complexity for that tinker tier.
  • Village immigrants' pronouns are now more consistent.
  • Added a new option, "Prerelease Stage Scale", in the Overlay UI section.
  • Fixed a typo in waveform worm's description.
  • Fixed a bug with villager dialog color.
  • [modding] We added a new in-progress overlay UI for the Mod Manager.
  • [modding] Added a new "manifest.json" file to populate the extra fields shown in the Mod Manager. This file now subsumes config.json (you should convert any config.json files into manifest.json files). See https://cavesofqud.gamepedia.com/Modding:Manifest.json.
