First aid thread hooray. This is not some selfless act, gtfo my Sanguis thread. JK and stuff.
I was a little curious myself after the Sanguis thread, so I tested it out with Lim a bit. I just kinda threw some numbers at the configs and I didn't mess with the priority any, I only turned on deafness/blindness/rebounding in defences (I let my system def fully though before Lim started beating my face in) and it uh...it did all right. A lot better than the previous system.
I know Ezalor told me there was like a second delay to simulate lag/user ping? It's a lot faster than that, and the other rumors I've heard. Looking to be around .3s from gaining herb balance to eating an herb.
Not a lot of ways to control either except turning renew off/on. I suppose this is intended?
Doesn't use this at all from the looks of it. I don't think there would be any harm in allowing people to turn it on and letting it follow whatever rules Renew/Tree follow (which I'm assuming is along the lines of if x affs then renew/tree).
There is no pre-restore or parry options, so I think first aid would be pretty weak against limb routes. I don't think it would hurt to add these options if it's possible, as simply having the option to pre-restore and parry isn't going to automatically mean you won't die vs. limb classes.
This was probably user error or Lims mutant hounds that are apparently accomplished mages, but a few times he just tore straight through me. When he went with non mutant hounds I survived for a bit longer.
This was all with Lim just beating on me, no retaliation. I'm on homebrew and I cbf to code an actual pause into my system so I couldn't have an offense without my own curing interfering with first aid. I didn't mess around with the defences too much, but rebounding worked just fine until I ran out of sudorific. Would it be possible to add something to fill the pipes/syringes back when they empty?
All in all I think it's a lot better than the previous first aid that existed. Kudo's.
Edit: When you check the priorities it looks like a giant mess of stuff and is a little off putting. Would it be possible to separate the priority lists into herbs/salves/pipes/etc, to maybe clear up some of your screen so you can see what's actually going on a little better when you're editing your preferences.
