@waterphage13: You're in the wrong fourm. Suggestions go into the Suggestions forum http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?board=5.0. As far as I understand Toady at least looks at the first post in the threads there, but any real answer to suggestions in this thread would open the floodgates to suggestion hell here, so you're very unlikely to get any actual answer.

Why don't you get an AC unit for your place? It is too expensive in US? Your energy bill would raise too much? Every year you seems to have the same issues with heat.

I'm not from US, but here in my country while it isn't cheap it is quite affordable. (and very necessary as it is in average way hotter than US)

The problem with USA is that in a lot of it, maybe a few months of the year will be hot as hell, and then the rest of it you'll be buried in snow.

The big problem is that Washington and British Columbia are literally on fire right now.

These heat waves sometimes lasts most of the summer, don't they? If anything, using it for just some months in the year would be an advantage as you wouldn't have high energy bills most of the time, and you wouldn't lose productivity for those days where you can't stand to stay inside.

As someone over in Texas, I can attest that sometimes even if you have a good AC, a hard enough heatwave will still make the house uncomfortable all day long even with it running full blast.

I can confirm that Random_Dragon is not lying. It doesn't help that the air is normally pretty dry as well, so it just sucks the moisture out of everything like a sponge.

I always forget which tags are supported by ADD_TAG.  Hard to imagine adding CAN_LEARN would actually work as intended.

Speaking of which, is there a reason only some tags are supported by syndrome CE add/remove tags? Is there any future plans to expand the scope of supported tags? Asking because full tag support (ala creature variations) would certainly be a holy grail for modders.

Thailand is always hot but our ACs completely negate the heat. Your country's weakass ACs need an upgrade.

Washington state is generally at around 110% humidity, so when it gets hot, the usual method of humans to cool off by sweat and evaporation is ineffective.

But then you basically have a hole in your house during the winter months.

You can always just transform the creature into a creature variation with the tags you want and the exact same name. A bit of a hackjob, but should work.

Western Washington is, which is where Toady lives. Where I do, it's... not, it's semi-arid here, like most of the state.

Aside from being rather hacky, this prevents any further body transformations on the creature.
