!!Science!!
« on: June 07, 2011, 09:43:43 pm »

i know science is a big theme on dwarf mode, but i wonder, beyond testing the sleep capacities of your adventurer if anyone has dared to test anything else in adventure mode.

When i start a new adventurer i will be looking for things to test and i hope my fellow adventurers will also play, not only for FUN (since that is the final goal of every legendary hero) but also for !!Science!!

lets see here, we already tested if you can get fat, you can its just a bitch, and we tested weightloss through fire, which if you lose all your fat by melting it then fire can no longer kill you... we do science, its just harder to figure out what to science when you are in first person I think.

Try testing how far a human must fall to produce a guaranteed death, and how armor affects it.

12-z fall defeinitely kills everything no matter the armour. Apparantly, it doesn't event chack the armour just saying "Urist Mcunhappy collides with an obstacle and blows apart" as opposed to reporting compat messages like "Urists Mcunhappy's left cheek taked the full force of the impact, tearing apart the muscle".
On the other hand, 5z fall definitely just makes the combat reports and decides the victim's outcome based in them, so it's just 7 cases to check
