Mutation Overhaul: our biggest mutation rebalance ever


The Mutation Overhaul patch is here! This update includes our biggest mutation rebalance ever, new elements of our RPG-style UI, and hundreds of other changes. Enjoy!

version 2.0.201.44

MUTATIONS

  • We added a new feature for physical mutations: rapid advancement. When you level up to level 5, and every 10 levels afterward, your genome enters an excited state and you can rapidly advance one of your physical mutations.

    • Rapid advancement increases the mutation's rank by 3.
    • These three ranks don't count toward the rank 10 limit.
    • Rapidly advanced mutations are still subject to the mutation rank cap that's based on character level.
    • If you have 4 mutation points after gaining a level, you'll have a chance to buy a new mutation before you choose a mutation to rapidly advance.
    • If you have no physical mutations at this point, nothing happens.

  • We revamped Chimera.

    • Chimera still restricts the mutations you can acquire to physical-only.
    • Whenever you buy a new mutation or mutate with Unstable Genome, one of the mutation options (chosen randomly but revealed to you) will have a rider effect: you'll grow a new body part.
      • The body part is chosen randomly from among all organic body parts and their variants.
        • head, blossom, cap, nuclear protrusion
        • face, antennae, feelers, sensory bud, sensory bulb, sensory nodule, sensory frill, sensory ganglion
        • arm, bine, branch, fibrous node, frond, leg, lobe, stalk, stem, taproot
        • bifurcation, fine root, leaf, pincer, pinnule, pseudopod, side hypha, tendril, tentacle, twig
        • feet, front legs, legs, rear legs
        • roots, lower hyphae, mulch
        • fin, dorsal fin, tail fin
      • The body part grows out of one of your existing body parts, weighted toward your body but any non-abstract body part is possible.
    • If you have Irritable Genome and Chimera, when you buy a mutation, there's a 1/3rd chance you'll grow the new body part. This is in place of the augmented selection, since you Irritable Genome restricts your mutation choices. You will however get the augmented selections when Unstable Genome triggers.

  • We overhauled several physical mutations.

    • Adrenal Control
      • We revamped Adrenal Control.
        • Gives you Release Adrenaline, an ability that grants 9+mutationRank Quickness and temporarily increases the ranks of your other physical mutations by (mutationRank/3)+1.

    MODDING & DEBUG

  • Added native support for Harmony 2.0.2 patches in mods (https://github.com/pardeike/Harmony). harmony.PatchAll() is called after mod assembly compilation, applying all mod-defined harmony patches.
  • We added a new in-progress prerelease UI for the Mod Manager.
  • 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.
  • Most internal classes are now public.
  • Extended the Genotypes.xml IsMutant attribute to more contexts where the mutant / true kin distinction is relevant.
  • Several new attributes have been added to Bodies.xml elements. bodyparttype and bodyparttypevariant now have:

    • Appendage, a boolean flag for whether the body part type is an actual appendage (in addition to all previously existing requirements, this flag must be true for a body part to be dismemberable)
    • UsuallyOn, which is used with appendages to designate the typical parent body part of this body part (for example, the UsuallyOn value for Face is Head, the UsuallyOn value for Hand is Arm)
    • UsuallyOnVariant, which is used for body part type variants to designate a specific variant they're typically attached to (for example, the UsuallyOnVariant value for Sensor Array is Control Unit)
    • ImpliedBy, which is used by body parts like Hands to designate that some number of another body part (in this case, Hand) implies their existence
    • ImpliedPer, which works with ImpliedBy to specify how many of the implying parts are "satisfied" by the existence of this part

  • Colors, anatomies, options, conversations, and pronouns now reload properly when mod configuration changes.
  • The Armor part now supports modifying MA via the MA field.
  • Members on the WorldBuilder class are now public.
  • The cell Inherits property in Worlds.xml now functions properly when merging into existing worlds.
  • Errors and warnings generated by the mod compiler now include the associated filename and line number.
  • Added [XRL.HasCallAfterGameLoaded] and [XRL.CallAfterGameLoaded] attributes for registering static methods to be called after game loads.
  • Added a new test Debug option, "Show Error Popup", that should be useful for modders.
  • The "playerwho" wish now properly allows turns to tick.
  • Fixed a bug that caused the detail color of subtypes to be merged onto the tile.
  • Upgraded the C# compiler to Roslyn.
  • Added a new wish to remove a mutation: "mutationbgone:mutationid".
  • Added new wish to view data disks: "datadisk" (with a menu of all possible data disks) or "datadisk : Blueprint" or "datadisk : mod : ModName".
  • The clearstatshifts wish no longer returns spent mutation, skill, and attribute points.
