Your body needs to move all that lard around. Between a fat guy and a thin guy, both getting the same amount of exercise bloody rare in the real world, but would be the case in Cataclysm the fat guy would be stronger.
Of course they still don't have a strength penalty for being a woman, so it's not like realism is a consideration here.

>Your body needs to move all that lard around.
Obese people tend to have stronger legs, yes. However, they are still less mobile because it's not enough to compenstate for being fat. It doesn't matter for any other muscles. Fat is not very dense and most of it is stored on the belly, so the meager amount you have on your arms is pretty much irrelevant.

Then we could also argue what "strength" really is. I would expect a fat guy to win a wrestling match with a skinny guy, but I wouldn't expect him to do nearly as many pull ups, if any. But that's a whole different can of worms.

It doesn't protect from bullets either, they go through fat without care. Stabs with a short knife are really an exception, since they make it harder for the blade to reach vitals. But if the blade is long enough to reach them anyway, it doesn't really matter again.

Not him but from what I've heard some extra mass can help in martial arts, I guess it's because thanks to that extra mass you hit harder.

If you look at the current UFC heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier, you can see that he has some extra fat in him, the current boxing heavyweight, Andy Ruiz also has a good amount of fat in him.

Blood volume does increase with mass, so technically it does help with resisting toxins. Assuming the dose would be just enough to affect a lighter person, which is very rarely the case outside of tranquilizer agents.

If you're a wizard type, the carrying capacity is so low, that you'll probably be put over it by autopickup grabbing a mid-sized bullet stack.
There aren't many reasons not to drop shit you aren't using and pick it up later if you still want to use it, but it's tedious to do so.

This may be less of a problem once you understand the game mechanics well, but for me all the weapons looked worth considering and testing against creatures.
Shit like, do I need a slashing weapon against zombies or a bashing one against skeletons? I haven't seen any button that would show me critter stats, so I don't know what resistances may they have and is it worth switching weapons to bypass them.

I have played vey little, like 30 or 40 minutes.
What threw me off was that I could never hit anybody and if I did I would only deal like 10% of their hp so I just kited and kited and kited and kited again... You're probably supposed to play with allies but you have no control over them so they just die or whatever. Allies without control are very frustrating. Either make a party roguelike so you can switch between them as playable characters or remove them at all.

Fair enough.

Critter stats aren't shown to the player. In general, blunt weapons are the best all-around weapons.

The shop-level has containers where you can store items and it can be accessed from all levels via teleporters.

You could also use the "level loot" feature (activated with space) that lists all items on the level and autopilots you to the selected item if you want to pick up something later.

On the first levels there is probably more infighting as there are more animals on the levels.

Autopickup is disabled if the character is encumbered but yeah, encumbrance might be a problem to weak characters. Regardless of character type, you probably want Body to be at least 10.

>>262795037
Try playing with a half-orc. Set Body and Motion to at least 12, put all available skill-points to Melee, wield a two-handed weapon and you should destroy everything on the first level pretty easily.

Motion affects Melee and Body is used for extra damage.

Playing with allies is really not necessary. One player who has beaten the game several times almost never uses allies or even summons.

Allies on the first dungeon level are 1st level characters so they're very weak.

Few suggestions:
>show melee/ranged on critters somehow - the floating text on switch is too temporary
>show sounds visually - footstep symbol, arrow pointing at it, being able to look at it to see what sound was it
>show the reason for stopping autoexplore
>"critter enters into view" - I have to check critters like ghouls or ghasts because they look the same
>simulate 500 turns or so when the player first enters a level to de-player-centrize it a bit
>autopickup should not grab trash ammo. not sure how does it work, but it kept grabbing 300 bullets while ignoring 20 holy bullets of wrecking shit +3
Overall the UI is pretty good, but the "static" creature sprites make it feel less informative than DCSS. This can be compensated for with text, but the game currently doesn't do that.

Mechanically, it just felt too focused on simple effects, though. "You deal damage", "You summon a critter", "You attack twice".
I'd expect it to get much more fun with more DoTs for player (renewable poison), procs on attacks, warrior buffs with low magic requirement.

>Critter stats aren't shown to the player.
You could at least show the damage calculation, like
>5 bashing + 2 holy - 3 bashing armor
Hiding information from player is hell for skill curve

>The shop-level has containers where you can store items and it can be accessed from all levels via teleporters.
Yeah, I noticed there is a stash.
The problem isn't lack of stash, the problem is that you need to manage items on person. Including gold. Why does gold have weight?
Some games only have weight penalties for worn/wielded items - I think it would work well here.
I'm not sure what problem is inventory weight supposed to be solving here.

>On the first levels there is probably more infighting as there are more animals on the levels.
I've seen company dudes fighting slimes and demons lower.
The problem is, they only did it for first x turns I was on the level, later I only saw the aftermath.

For more natural dungeons, consider this experiment:
>create a dungeon
>run it for thousands of turns without a player
>check the results: surviving critters, items on the ground
>try to recreate the results using your starting conditions
Ideally, you'd achieve a steady state where waiting for 10k turns and 20k turns doesn't differ much, but still has critters running around and fighting.
Sure, player won't see 10k turn dungeons, but this would prevent the early chaos turning into late silence.
And if it's unrealistic to achieve, have some lower goal - not 10k turns, but at least 200 turns.

you know encumbrance for wielded/worn items has never been too bad, but I can't think of a single example where inventory weight isn't worse than inventory slots or an inventory grid.

Though, IVAN and Elona actually make it pretty fun by essentially making it a form of grinding stats by lifting weights. I might have to take it back if it's full simulation and you can do squats instead of having to level or spend points or quaff stat potions.

I might remove the weight from gold but I don't think anyone other have complained about item weights. Usually players seem to stick to 2-3 weapons and one armor if any.

Monsters might stay in their birth area for several hundred rounds and then start to wander around for some time and then return home. So infighting doesn't just happen in the first few rounds when the player enters the level but is of course more frequent then. Small amount of new creatures are also spawned to the level. It still is very random, depending on monster type, placement, behaviour type and various other things. Sometimes a level is created where there are mostly non-wandering creatures that don't fight each other, sometimes you might find an unique dead.

I actually run the game without the player for x rounds if the player re-enters a level after some time so that he doesn't find creatures in the same exact positions.

The problem is orders of magnitude in difference.
This means that a stealthy, careful player will see mostly empty dungeon, except for the first few turns on a new level. And a new player will most likely be careful until he can learn the game.

I am not certain how in the span of two hours I beat pic related twice when I am shit at roguelikes and typically am only ever able to complete certain 7DRL games or certain roguelikes that you can mod. But I did and now I can play on Elite Mode because that's the reward you get when you beat the game twice.

People generally don't like weight on things like gold and ammunition because it causes tedious opportunity cost decisions where they drop a tiny handful of money or ammo to pick up a sword, then explore a little farther, find another trinket and repeat ad nauseum the same dickering.

Dickering isn't fun, it's work, nobody likes pouring through lists when they wanted to be making tactical decisions.

Making money something weightless like SOULS or BLOOD CRYSTALS is a common choice, since you can use the same currency for everything but it doesn't really matter.

For ammo you could consider having quivers be an actual equipment type holding specified quantities of arrows or bolts or whatever, and you physically wouldn't carry any quantity of loose ammunition with individual weight, you'd just have quivers and boxes that had pre-specified encumbrance uninfluenced by their contents with a message saying you have nothing to put the arrows in if you aren't carrying one.
