Type: Item Effect
Scope: Beer and Wine
Description: Beer and Wine should have more of an effect in Urban Dead. So on top of HP, there would be another health unit: Soberity. Soberity is slowly restored over time. Drinking alchohol decreases it. Once it goes below a certain level, the player is intoxicated. The bad effects of intoxication:
  • Walking costs 2AP
  • You can only speak Death Rattle-style.
  • Accuracy is reduced.

Some somewhat good effects:

  • You only take half damage.
  • To zombies with Scent Blood and humans with diagnosis, you appear as "[name] ([HP]%, Smells of alchohol)"

Discussion (Intoxication)

Dupe. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 15:08, 21 August 2009 (BST)

1 minute dupe! --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 15:09, 21 August 2009 (BST)

Bloody edit conflictor... The half damage thing is a bad idea as it just makes drunken meatshields harder to remove. Perhaps a +1 to damage with unarmed and melee attacks would be better? Also I think the 2AP movement might be a bit much... how about just giving a % chance of falling over on any 'active' actions (fighting, moving, searching etc...) while drunk. While down you would be unable to do anything but talk or stand up (1AP) but would still remain a valid target! Of course if you fall while free running it should also hurt :) --Honestmistake 15:16, 21 August 2009 (BST)

Honestmistake, you have some great ideas. --Brainguard 21:44, 21 August 2009 (BST)
What if you are a new player and don't have Death Rattle? I understand where you are trying to go with that (slurred speach), but how you have it listed to me sounds like you have to have that skill. Also, I think there should be a decrease in your skills that you do have such as firearms and melee. --DBHT 15:44, 21 August 2009 (BST)
There is a decrease in accuracy for weapons. And for "Death Rattle", I meant there would be a similar speech system to Death Rattle. Sorry for the confusion. --Brainguard 21:44, 21 August 2009 (BST)

While it may be more realistic, it doesn't make the game more fun or interesting to have alcoholics included. They'll just end up being annoying while actually believing that they're being extremely cool (just like IRL again) -- boxy talkteh rulz 22:28 21 August 2009 (BST)

It wouldn't encourage alchoholics, it would just make Beer a little more balanced.--Brainguard 19:11, 22 August 2009 (BST)

Brain, have you been reading my idea page called crap :P this was actually mentioned though it didn't have an serious effects, just slurred speech (I think) --Crazy Hobo Man 00:23, 22 August 2009 (BST)

I thought your idea page was meant to be a humorous suggestion. (No offense) --Brainguard 19:11, 22 August 2009 (BST)

Yes to reduced accuracy & increased risk of falling down and hurting yourself & slurred speech. No to taking less damage. All in all a good and fun idea, which has potential to become a plausible suggestion.--Maps 07:56, 22 August 2009 (BST)

Ok, but there has to be some benefit, like increased melee attacks.--Brainguard 19:11, 22 August 2009 (BST)

Unsigned Vote

Can I just sign and un-strike my own vote, or do I have to vote again? Lelouch vi Britannia is helping make Ridleybank green_ and gives Achievements 01:22, 23 August 2009 (BST)

You can just sign and unstrike. Just take away Bob's strike and his subsequent comment/signature, and replace it with your own. --DANCEDANCEREVOLUTION-- 01:52, 23 August 2009 (BST)
If you're going to dupe this, you'd better provide a link to an actual suggestion, ddr :p -- boxy talkteh rulz 01:58 23 August 2009 (BST)
