for time to time the people need to see Normal Stuff like cute bunnys or Cat videos or maybe a movie from the time before the outbreak. OR just some friendly faces of normal people who dont want to eat your Brain.#
Coming with this the new Survival Mechanic: Sanity!
“One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.”
The sanity level is on each Character Different and individual. It is also parallel how happy the community is in general.
Traits affect sanity. Like a Movie Star is more likely to be more sane than an Ex Criminal or Drug addict. also people who lived a completely normal life before the outbreak can loose sanity very fast because they never experienced anything like this before. or seen anything like this. Therefore they can loose sanity and get Insane/Mad leading to extreme behaviours that affect your whole community. Having more than 1 madmen/madwomen in your community can lead to a whole new affection between them, so they dont bitch about anything, but anger others together.
this can beneficial if i want to make a playthrough with a Warmonger. maybe?!
Madmen/Madwomen get more happines from bad things and actions, like killing people or killing special zombies, unsing special/rare weapons to kill anything.
people with low sanity may start loosing some skill points before they become a madmen/Madwomen.
things like a Lounge area will increase sanity, also being for a longer time in the homebase will also increase sanity to a certain level.
feast that can be made in the kitchen can also hugely increase sanity. getting wo work in a garden can increase sanity.
it is dependable on the traits that a character has.
“The sole difference between myself and a madman is the fact that I am not mad!”
Follower missions like findiing the lost record or finding my prepper aunt etc. will definetly increase Sanity of the character, aslo a little for the whole community.
also while playing a character with low sanity can lead to irrational hallucinations. like seeing for some seconds zombies that are not there or hearing noise that is not real.
Or is the Zed there and real? i think i loose my sanity! im going MAD!
if This is getting added to the Game i will literally Loose my mind O.o!
