Aging, FoY and hair colour.

Recommended Posts

So a couple of guys in our company have now reached their 3rd tier of rejuvenation and are reporting that they are still aging. That means that they're going to start losing their skin tone and hair colour. As it stands, dyed hair still fades with age. Speaking as scientifically trained educator, that's not how dyes work. At all. End of story. My grandmother was so vain that Carly Simon might've written a song about her. She dyed her hair jet-black up until she was about 85 and sure enough, her hair was jet black. For some players, aesthetics are a very important part of the game. Rejuvenation restored their hair colour but now it's up in the air if they'll even be able to rejuvenate.

I understand there are plans for lineage/descendants but that's not in yet, and not everyone will want to participate even if it was.

Suggestions:

1. Aging shouldn't break the laws of physics. Dyed hair should remain dyed, regardless of the character's age or any levels of rejuvenation.

2. People with tier 3 rejuvenation should be unaging, at least until the lineage content is in the game. Or perhaps add a 4th tier rejuvenation buff that gives you unaging.

3. Worst case: Ensure that rejuvenation continues to work for characters who already have the tier 3 buff.

Cheers

What leads you to that belief?

Programming-wise, they could just as easily have the interaction text simply not display if you already have tier 3, as they could code it "+1 rejuve (max 3)".

Get rid of the aging kid idea not a good idea in a sandbox game.

Why would it suddenly stop working? Afaik the FoY is activated based on age, so when you hit 90 for the 4th time it will still work to reset you to 20. Just won't give bonus stats. That's the whole point of the FoY, it's meant to be an alternative to the human breeding mechanic. So why would they make it only work 3 times?

Yup, you should still be able to go to the FoY (at any age) to have yourself reset. It's only when you use it during old-age (90) that you're given the buff, and only for the first 3 times.
