Between 2021-11-18 2130 AEST and 2021-11-19 0530 AEST a new skill, "Suit Sustainability Training" appeared in the skill tree. The only reference I've been able to find to it was in an update from earlier November, https://forums.kleientertainment.com/game-updates/oni-alpha/485090-r1694/.
- All versions
- Added new "Suit Sustainability Training" skill, which slows exosuit durability damage. Note: this replaces “W.I.P. Skil” in Spaced Out!
I realise it says "All versions", but I've been playing all month and haven't seen this skill until yesterday. I have dupes that have already advanced past this Suit Wearing skill tier, and it's suddenly appeared as a new prerequisite. I have not purchased the Spaced Out DLC. I have never opted into suit degradation when configuring games. What caused it to appear now? Even my oldest save game available through cloud save history now has this new skill.
I only run two mods, neither seem related to the issue I'm experiencing:
- Show Building Ranges, https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1960996649
- Mod Updater, https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2018291283
I wondered if the game's configuration mattered. I created a new game and ensured I selected "Durability: Indestructible", the Suit Sustainability Training skill is still present. Why did this ?feature? suddenly appear overnight?
