And I once savescummed because I got injured while cleansing a town in DF.
Code: [Select]
dfhack die
Note that the reason I do this is so I can let out anger on those simulated "people". So hyped for the villains update so I can do less murderous things while still being evil.

The guy in the article I linked believes that e.g. a complex boss such as Bowser might be some % as sentient as a human (because Bowser exhibits goal-driven behavior), and that % is very, very small, so killing one Bowser is insignificant, but if enough players kill Bowser over and over then it's adds up in a cumulative fashion to a Bowser Holocaust which is morally significant.

That moral math begs the question of how many Bowser-lives are worth one human lives, or how many real humans you'd kill to save how many Bowsers in Super Mario.

Right now the only argument I will affect as valid is "killing npcs is immoral because it simulates killing real people".
I've killed cave crocodiles in DF by teleporting them 15 z-levels off the ground (using gui/teleport). How am I supposed to pull off telekinetic crocodile-killing?



@MaxTheFox, you can use DFhack full-heal while in your character's status screen to fully heal your character.

Not if you are instakilled. Happens occasionally even through adamantine armor.

I mean by that measure police, military and self-defense training are more morally dubious as the virtual sphere is much more hypothetical. To me it's all just a reactonnary backlash "music of the devil" kind of thing.

IIRC, DFhack full heal -r revives you. That, or you could try ghostly, full-heal, and ghostly, in that order. That one has a rather unsettling outcome, though: the revived-you can see and interact with your own corpse.

Kill the animals, save the frames.
