jigggy2000 Posted October 2, 2017 Share Posted October 2, 2017 I have an idea that relates to showers, as right now showers are pretty useless. if you want to clean a dupe of germs you just use a sink or wash basin. Now the first logical thing that comes to mind is that this only addresses the hands. Now this definitely leads to dupes not transferring germs to other objects so that makes perfect sense, no problems there. But that still leaves the rest of the body. Now at first I thought maybe make it so washing the dupes hands only gets rid of for example half the germs. But if they washed their hands they shouldnt be transferring germs and if the germ overlay showed dupes still having germs on them it would be confusing to determine if they washed their hands or not. Instead, to simplify the whole thing i noticed dupes still get the grimy effect. Perhaps just use that to determine hygiene level. Now doing a quick google search tells me poor hygiene can lead to food poisoning and Pneumonia (infection of the lungs) which could be seen similar to slime lung. So if a dupe has the grimy effect make it so germs get a multiplier effect on them so germs will start to grow in their bodies in a small percentage if they get infected by any amount. making their immune systems work a little a harder so it shouldnt be left unaddressed. The grimy effect should probably only be applied after a few cycles of not showering. Probably enough to not create problems in early game. This would make showers a little more viable.
