Now, Turning To Reason, And Its Just Sweetness, posted on Tue Jul 2 11:30:32 2024

This blog post is mainly about stat items, but while I'm here:

Erected tents now show up on terrain maps, and people/corpses inside tents can now be located with the relevant rituals.

On to the stat items!

The effects of stacking stat items are no longer dependent on the order in which you equip the items. For positive stat effects, the final effect should now be the best boost that was possible with the old calculation. Moreover, the bless ritual will no longer interfere with equipped stat items.

Note that for some combinations of items, the negative stat effects are now slightly harsher than before; for example, wearing a flat cap and bronze helm now gives you -4 con instead of -3 con. This was an unavoidable side-effect of the new calculation, but we hope that it is an acceptable price to pay for the consistency and bless-proof-ness of the new system.

If there is a combination you rely on that is now overall substantially worse for you when both positive and negative effects are taken into consideration, please make a bugrep on one of the relevant items, stating all of the following information: what items make up the combo, what it used to give you, what it gives you now, and why this is a problem (in as much detail as possible).

(NB if you are reading this post very soon after it was posted and the change above seems not to be working for you, please su and then check again.)
