Crash bug (on vacation death?)
« on: May 19, 2008, 03:31:00 am »

Had a seducer take a shot to his head, but I still sent him on vacation with his date without treating it. The next day, his prior seducee reported losing touch with the squad, and the game crashed. Best explanation I could come up with was that he died on vacation in a nice, unhandled manner, and Bad Things happened...

That seems like a very plausible idea. I'll have to check it out when I get the chance.

Rather than try to resolve death on vacation, I'm going to make it so you can't go on vacation if you're injured.

what is the logic behind that? (I mean obviously if you belong in an ICU you wouldn't take any long trips, but if you just have a few scars to heal, arguably a vocation is just what the doctor ordered.)

That's scars, not open wounds.

One could argue that a minor enough wound it shouldn't matter, but I don't anticipate it being an issue if it's a strict rule that you need to be at full health, and it simplifies the rules compared to making it a complicated call. If you're hurt and want to go on vacation it'll just be grayed out and say (must be uninjured, will stand up all other dates) instead of (will stand up all other dates), and you won't be able to pick that one. You can still spend $100 and the rest as usual.

I may have encountered a variation of this bug resulting from a recent raid loss. One of the LCS members who was NearDeath went into hiding for a few days, and when the majority of my crew returned, the game crashed when I tried to look at my active librals.
