Minor/Major Irritation Cases

Recommended Posts

I wanted to test to find out what gases dupes need to be exposed to in order to get the Irritation debuffs.

Minor Irritation = -2 Athletics

Major Irritation = -4 Athletics


First test is with 10kg of each of the following materials. Only PO2 and CO2 give no irritation whatsoever.


During this testing, I noticed that different amounts of gas cause exposure more or less quickly. Next test is to see how much of a gas a dupe needs to be exposed to to get the irritation, and how fast it takes to go from "no exposure" to "minor irritation" to "major irritation."



Upon unpausing, it took 3 seconds for the 10kg exposed dupe to get a minor irritation.


The next second gave Abe a major irritation.


Next is Meep, at 17 seconds for a minor irritation:


And then 31 seconds for the major irritation:


Poor Camille, she didn't live long enough to see her skin be irritated: 


So it looks like small exposures to gas irritants don't give irritations, given that they won't live long enough to get irritated. Next lets test the minimum required pressure for exposure.


19 seconds for Hassan for minor irritation.


21 seconds for Bubbles for minor irritation.


27 seconds for Mi-Ma, minor.


34 seconds for hassan for major:


A lot of pictures here already, I'll just type out the rest of the results.

Bubbles gets Major at 40

Gossman gets minor at 41.

Mi-Ma major at 51

Gossman Major at 75

Devon Minor at 81.


These results lead me to believe there's no minimum required exposure, its just a direct function of time and gas pressure.

Hope this helps!

Making a table of the results would make it a bit more readable


Also you can get results for longer timeframes by getting the dupes into oxygen masks, so they can survive longer. Though since they (at least seem to) exhale CO2 with oxygen masks on, you may have to take that into account, perhaps by having an airflow tile below them with CO2 in it.

It would also be interesting to see if the irritation function is different for different gases/fluids

werecat mentioning liquids was interesting, I hadn't seen those cases before so I decided to test these as well


methane, chlorine, and co2 are difficult to keep in liquid form, the dupes keep vaporizing them.

further, during these tests I had initially assumed that "if they get irritated by it, it'll be the same function of time and pressure for all materials that irritate them."

while I was running this, that was clear it was not the case, but it'll be decidedly more difficult to test liquids, given the different densities involved in each of their cases.


table for people who like tables
