Trouble becoming a vampire (GENESIS)
« on: April 17, 2013, 03:31:48 am »

Hi all!

I've been derping around with my steel dwarfette demigod adventurer in Deon's new Genesis mod, and killed a vampire. His interaction in the raws was this:

On New Guy's advice ("Try changing the above in the vampire curses raws. I haven't tested this, but it seems to call for a generic VAMPIRE_CURSE interaction when there is nothing like that.") I changed it,

drank some of the previous vampire's stored blood, killed another vampire after the change, drank it's blood, but I'm still not a vampire. What did I overlook? Do I need to gen a new world for the change to take effect?

I think it takes a few hours.

Definitely not, nothing in the raws indicate that. START:0 means it takes 0 turns.

Did you try minimizing disease resistance?

This is a vanilla issue and I believe it may be related to disease resistance. Not to go too self-promotion-y here, but my mod has a workaround for it. If you want to do vanilla though, just keep chugging and eventually it might work.

Mix the blood with water and drink it. This works 100% of the time.

Life, like most voyages, is more about the journey than the destination, wherever it may be.

Thanks, mixing the blood did it. New question: can an adventurer vampire die from thirst?

No, but it will decrease your speed similar to the way of sober dwarves, making you do everything slower until you drink some blood.
