When is protective gear is in effect?
« on: April 29, 2022, 11:00:27 pm »
There are a number of protective gear for the gals, such as Space Towel, coats, bras, shirts and others.
Do any of them work if not in the proper (e.g. Wear, Hat, Jew) slots? Is there a way to determine it in the analysis?

While Peg Leg and Towel says that 'simply having it' will grant a buff in the description, the Fan and many other protective gear like Chem Coat doesn't, leading me to assume they might or might not.

  • Bullets go that way. Money comes this way.

So far as i am aware they will work from any allowed location in inventory. Where you can place them in inventory is what is usually restricted. The engine handling for script based effect items is somewhat inelegant.

The "gear slot" references something else: 2 items each counted as "bra" won't stack even if you're able to fit them in the inventory (usually impossible, but there are corner cases).

So if I understand it correctly, if I have a protective gear anywhere in inventory, it will be in effect. even in the backpack.
If I have two items for the same descriptive slot, e.g. shirt, only one will be in effect.
Thanks!
