Hey, Just been thinking about the Zombie features, and i realized one is a little... strange.

When your a zombie and go around continuing to eat creatures and such, After two or three, your character gets "chubby or fat" This to me seems odd, as being a zombie...you should be able to eat a crazy amount before being subjected to body changes.

Mind you, i'm not sure how easy this is to code, and maybe it's been mentioned before. So i pose it as a question, just to see if maybe that feature could be included. If not, it's fine, no real biggie, just was a thought I had.

Funny thing. It used to be that devouring corpses had 0 effect on your weight. (And I don't think cooking and cleaning did either.) But that changed a short while ago with an update to the game that fixed many things that should have been around the whole time, but just weren't working. Sad to say, this is likely to be permanent.

Unfortunately, the change has turned zombie from actually pretty awesome into actually pretty useless. Maybe if zombies got a special kind of eating that didn't fill them up as fast and didn't make them fat?

The idea of a fat zombie is a pretty absurd one, anyway.

I just wanted to say "Appaloosa." But I think we're getting off track.

Good idea, Wolfgang. I'll add it to the list of things to examine when I'm rebalancing the races (hopefully this month...).

I just happen to notice it after doing what a zombie would do and eating almost everything i had come across, and then my character was fat and losing stam for it. Struck me as odd, and i just thought i'd mention it. This is a hell of an undertaking and stuff gets missed. Smile Thanks for Considering it CMJ.
