What Annoys You?
« on: May 02, 2012, 02:40:28 am »

What sort of things do you encounter that are annoying/rage inducing/just plain dumb?

For me, trying to eat some food after spending days on end hunting something that can be butchered so now I need to eat about 6 pieces of whatever instead of just one, and being told that I am too full to eat, even though my status is "Hungry" is the most infuriating message this game has ever given me.

So you never were so hungry that you can actually fill yourself with food and still not be sated? Yes, that is a thing.

Only when stoned.

But how about this: Drinking "stagnant water" is fine when it's on the ground, but if you put it in a container, "No, that's disgusting!"

I always get pissed off when I walk down a set of stairs in the catacombs and am immediately one-shotted by a crossbowman.

I get pissed off when I go on a quest to kill a black bear, I cut off it's leg, it runs away, it gets kicked by an emu, it opens the threatening window, but it still runs away.

Sewers. My God, sewers.

I am often sent on quests to find someone and kill them in a sewer, but the sewers are almost always empty (sometimes there's small hostile critters in them but not often) and several passages are unable to be navigated without drowning.

Bogey. Fucking. Men.
I HATE bogeymen.


Not being able to find sewer entrances is sorta annoying, too.

The entrances are fairly easy to find, but I feel you on the Bogeymen. They are weak as shit, most of the time taking only a single blow to fell; the problem is landing that single blow. Usually, I advance world gen a world without Bogeymen, just because I like to travel alone.

I feel your pain.  These things were like wasps.  Good thing Toady added a "remove bogeyman" sort of option in advanced world gen.

I...don't like rivers.  The dark blue ones you have to swim across.  I have died to alligators a few times, and also to drowning even though I have adequate swimmer skill.

And really, it's just tedious crossing the darn things.

I hate rivers too. When I go outside a town to quest I always need to cross thousands of these small rivers without fast-travel and my companions always end up drowning, one by one.

I hope there will be an option that will allow to make rivers passable on travel screen.

I have come to loathe doors.

You can't see past them, even if it's just an opening without an actual door (like those in keeps, towers and houses), and walking through them, if there is a hostile (cross)bowman on the other side, is suicide most of the time.

About crossing rivers: If the river is a lighter shade of blue than normal, you can fast travel over them. My only gripe with them is that you have to alt+direction to enter them. You can't just walk into them normally, even if there's a ramp.
