Hi ! I am currently playing Shipwrecked with Wormwood (a direct start, not coming from another game). During both Hurricane and Monsoon seasons, the heavy storms strike Wormwood while he is wearing the Snakeskin Hat or the Dumbrella, two items that are supposed to give lightning protection. So Wormwood catch fire by this circumstance, making it worse. During a single storm, I have been striked at least 10 times in a row, losing more than 100 hp. Heartbreaking to use some compost wraps for this
Shipwrecked is currently the most difficult DLC for Wormwood as nitre isn't renewable and healing items are complicated to produce in the early game. Losing a ton of hp because of the lightning, during two seasons, and furthermore the ones before the volcanic season that push you to explore in order to find the volcano, is a bit too much in my taste. Add in that the blooming mechanic with the hunger multiplier during monsoon season and we are in hell.
So, is it possible to rebalance the lightning Wormwood fire thingy ? Some thoughts :
- Instead of catching fire each time even with lightning protection item such as Dumbrella, Wormwood temperature would hugely increase with a strike and be moduled by insulation factor. Of course, reaching a certain point, Wormwood would catch fire. That way, there is the possibility to prepare and prevent the problem. Cold thermal stone and ice would help too.
- Wormwood could extinguish the immolation, with poop per example, or ice.
- The bramble husk prevents catching fire.
- Lightning protection actually prevents catching fire by strike for Wormwood.
What are your thoughts ? I return playing the water/fire apocalypse, good game and good dev to you
EDIT : I may have made a mistake by posting in the bug section as I initially thought catching fire this way was a bug, maybe should I have post in the suggestion section. Apologies for that !
