I propose a new liquid. Coffee. Cures confusion and exhaustion.

+ Will do.

I kind of hate sirens. Idk if I would call them "overpowered" but the annoyance goes beyond anything else in the game.

I share that sentiment. I do think they are weak/fragile enough not to be a danger unless they surprise you, but they are annoying as hell.

The FC level with several sirens was envisioned as about as annoying as the Enner level. Not directly as damaging, but very dangerous if you don't come prepared and let yourself get into a bad position.

And again... the confusion effect when eating elf flesh lasts far too long. Possibly permanently if it's compounded similarly to eating floating eyes/blink dogs? Which is character ending since you can never again read a scroll.

I could make it weaker.

Right now, they're like kobolds - just don't eat them. There's always the guaranteed altar to Seges.

BTW, what are your thoughts on nurphe bats?

Can we get the really nasty guys (aranea spiders, nurphe bats) in a different color? Purple or blue?

I don't like that they look exactly the same as their less harmful brethren. Even for IVAN that's pretty brutal

I can't think of any other monster in the game where the nastier versions aren't visibly different. Maybe golems but since those are completely based on material it at least gives you an idea of which ones to check more closely

They have a different color, bot maybe not different enough. Nurphe bats are pale with purple eyes, maybe I could make them bright purple? And aranea spiders are reddish, so I will make them deeper red.

Artifact weapon using the flail graphics. Actual name would be "the X-headed flail named Vindex".

Starts with 1 head and as it kills, grows more heads (changing its graphics). If you don't kill with it for too long, the extra heads will start to disappear.

When you attack with it, each head rolls its own attack. Thus a 3-headed flail would do 3 attacks with a single bump against a monster.

I love the way your IVAN dev work over the years has made you into a great programming guru Holybanana always wanted IVAN to be a vehicle for others to learn C/C++

IVAN definitely got me into programming. I think it's admirable how simple and transparent the code is. You can understand many parts without any knowledge of coding and then delve deeper. And the community is great, too.

I still feel much more confident with Python than with C++, but maybe I'll get there in time.

I had some more segfaults today. (I really hope they were not related to my safescumming haha)

In particular, game would often segfault when Mirror Imps would hit me (or maybe I hit them?).

Also, GC7 (the mystic one) was almost unplayable because of segfaults that seemingly would happen out of nowhere.

Nothing should break if you're savescumming by copying your savefiles elsewhere and then back once you die, unless you don't copy all the files.

I'll have a look at the mirror imps. I think there might be a problem when a magic beam other than from a wand hits them.

Maybe zero or NULL volume got passed to the Forge Item recipe when you escaped from it and that caused a segfault?

Thanks for the report.

See the screenshot.

I was shopping in the library when suddenly every guard etc. in Attnam started to move around. For a second, I thought I somehow managed to steal by mistake, or otherwise anger the town, but everyone was still peaceful and after a while, they all returned back to their place.
