Feature Friday - July 9, 2021


  • Added a new item mod, overloaded, that can be tinkered or found on a variety of electronics, including most energy weapons. Overloaded items have increased performance but draw extra charge, generate heat when used, and have a chance to break relative to their charge draw.
  • Overloaded laser pistols are now normal laser pistols with the overloaded mod applied.
  • You can no longer repair items in combat, generally.
  • The micromanipulator array implant now lets you repair items in combat at an action cost of one turn.
  • Added new dialogue for crab farmers, leech farmers, cat herders, snail farmers, goat herders, amoeba farmers, beetle farmers, and schematics drafters.
  • You can no longer enter yourself if you are a piece of enclosing furniture such as an iron maiden, a regeneration tank, or a psionic sarcophagus.
  • Spray bottles can now be manually sealed and unsealed.
  • Ganglionic teleprojectors now cost less charge to activate but have a per-turn cost while active.
  • Nulling armors, ontological anchors, and items with co-processors no longer consume charge on the world map.
  • Added the option to set a custom autosave interval for zone transitions (Options > Automation > Automatic save on zone transition).
  • Cases where chairs, beds, and enclosing furniture move or are picked up while someone is using them are now handled properly.
  • Fixed a bug that caused psychic hunters to never spawn if you abandoned your original body.
  • Fixed a bug that caused AI to continuously reload their magazine and liquid-loaded weapons if they also had an empty energy cell socket.
  • Fixed a bug that caused visible damage you were responsible for not to be printed to the message log unless the recipient was adjacent to you.
  • Fixed a bug that caused creatures to continue to display as enclosed when the furniture that was enclosing them was destroyed.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Sunder Mind to end prematurely when targeting a companion.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Sunder Mind to not play its sound or visual effects when the target died.
  • Fixed a bug that caused Sunder Mind to print its damage message after the target had died.
  • Fixed a bug that made the walk command attack a wall you arrive at if you have a digging capability active.
  • Fixed an exception when cancelling aggression.
  • Fixed a bug that caused VSync to stop functioning when the game window was resized on Linux.
