Topic: Carrying Penatly and fatigue tested  (Read 4190 times)

Hi, I did some interesting tests about game engine. ::)
I discovered that fatigue when running very strictly depend even on very small (as I was thingking before) Carrying Penatly.

On my character 253lbs I can still carry 25lbs weared clothes without any penatly. Its seems like 10% maybe is free.
During the test I was running 1 big map tile island from 1 shore to another and back. It was 66 tiles x2 = 132tiles = 264m.
I did many same runs to be sure, and every time effect was same.

When I wasn't carry anything except my weared clothes my carring penatly was 0%
0% carrying penatly --> 22% of fatigue after run.

You can't carry any equipment to stay with penatly 0%, even smallest knife make it-1%.
Game mechanic dont cunt weight directly, you can have few pounds or kg more if you still fit in penatly limit which looks like this:

cp = carrying penatly
--> fatigue after 132 tiles of distance runned
cp   0 % --> 22%
cp   1 % --> 44% 
cp 2-4% --> 64%
cp 5-6% --> 86%
cp 7% stoped at 95% fatigue around 25 tiles to end, wasn't able to run anymore :o

I didn't check if big penatly affect combat fatigue also the same way, but I gues its work like this.

Now you know why this njerpz civilians get you so fast and why they are so hard to beat.
This kids and womans dont have weapons and armor. From crowd of 10 civilians there always are 1-2 or 3 fast with high dodge.
Even if you going to kill them full heavy armored without any running, your fatigue probably will be same extremally high after few attacks becasue it looks like combat is affected same as running.
I can still take Longbow, 2 knives, and 20 of arrows and fit in 1% penatly including light weared armor( penatly free) ;D

I interpreted it wrongly yeasterday so I had to modify it:
It was like this:
cp1-2% --> 44% 
cp3-4% --> 64%
I checked it 3 times and now is correctly.

Nice work!

Encumbrance also has very noticeable effect on tasks like felling trees.
2% penalty and felling a large tree fatigues the character to 20-30% range. Same character, encumbrance at 30%: can’t fell a tree without rest.
