Torch exploit

Recommended Posts

yigru    10

You can live through an entire night with a single torch, without it using up a single point of durability. Technically, you could do it every night with the same one torch for the entire game, without ever building a firepit. It would be silly, but still.

1.Have a torch in your inventory, wait for darkness

2.Wait until your character says "I can't see anything" -> "What was that?". basicaly the last second before you'd get hit by the dark.

3.Quickly put the torch in your character's hands, then remove it immediately, as if you were flicking a light switch, then quickly put it back into your inventory, so it doesn't use up durability while it's on your cursor.

4.You're now in the dark again but you're safe for a few seconds, since the "darkness timer" is now reset. After a few seconds when your character says "What was that?" again, just repeat point 3.

and that's it

Issue title

Infinite Torch to Survive at Night

Steps to reproduce

1. Place an utility item in hand (axe, sword, anything)

2. Place torch in slot 1.

3. Spam "1" on your keyboard to quickly to switch between torch and your item.

You will see that Torch does not diminish in % but you will also not die at night

Describe your issue

(This works with any slot, but for convenience lets say slot 1)

1. Place an utility item in hand (axe, sword, anything)

2. Place torch in slot 1.

3. Spam "1" on your keyboard to quickly to switch between torch and your item.

You will see that Torch does not diminish in % but you will also not die at night because you technically see light often enough that it doesn't trigger death.
