Jump to navigation Jump to search're wearing a visored helm and have torso armor that would logically have sleeves, a cloak, and boots. No exposed skin would mean that regardless of how you bounced, you wouldn't brush up against the corpse. Kufat (talk) 04:53, 24 November 2022 (UTC)

I agree in theory, but it might be a SMOP. --Kahran042 (talk) 14:12, 24 November 2022 (UTC)
I always thought this could apply with monsters that have stone touch or paralyze attack. The less covered your body is, the less protected you are from those attacks. While fully covered you still have a chance of succumbing, but is greatly reduced. --User (talk) 22:23, 25 November 2022 (UTC)

I don't think this would be difficult to implement at all really.

In variant I'm playtesting and working on currently I did modify the cancellation to better represent the actual coverage of armor, and the way different attacks work (ie. metal armor won't give any shock protection, vizored helmet protects against touch, but not fire, slime etc... Hooded cloak won't protect as well if you wear a hat that you can't wear the hood over...)

It's just a matter of coding the cases into a bool function, which in my case is the function that counts MC in vanilla. Then drop it as "if" case wherever it's needed. Since I already have function that done, I think I'm going add this in my game, so thanks for this!

I'll post the source repo in github once I get the variant to the point I think it's releasable. Currently I have lot to do still...
