[Mod] Sunburn [sunburn]

by Ben » Post

Sunburn

The goal of this mod is to make sunlight dangerous by causing "sunburn", which damages you directly. Your only chance is to burrow down when the sun comes up.

Current behavior

If you stand in a node with light level 14 or more, you slowly accumulate "sunburn", represented by a hud bar with sun symbols. The more sunburn you have, the more you get damaged per second.

The sunburn will heal in darkness, but slowly. Until it is fully healed, you'll continue to take damage even if you're no longer in the sun!

API

There are accessors for the current sunburn level (0-20), as well as three multipliers: a burn factor (how fast sunburn is gained), a heal factor (how fast sunburn is lost, does not actually heal hp), and a damage factor (how much damage is done from sunburn).

All three factors start at 1.0 and reset to 1.0 at player death. Mods wishing to change any of these factors (sun milk, wearable sombreros, curse of vampirism or similar) should set them any time they change.

Code: Select all

sunburn.get_sunburn(player)              --// returns the level, 0-20
sunburn.set_sunburn(player, value)       --// sets the level, autocapping
sunburn.add_sunburn(player, value)       --// changes the level; negatives allowed

sunburn.get_burn_factor(player)          --// get the burn factor, default 1.0
sunburn.set_burn_factor(player, value)   --// set the burn factor
sunburn.get_heal_factor(player)          --// get the heal factor, default 1.0
sunburn.set_heal_factor(player, value)   --// set the heal factor
sunburn.get_damage_factor(player)        --// get the damage factor, default 1.0
sunburn.set_damage_factor(player, value) --// set the damage factor
All accessors take a minetest player object.


Future plans

None.

This mod is basically a response to (and clone of) Beware the Dark. It has a different damage method, and it's probably not very balanced yet, but it seems to work.

Feedback welcome!

Is it possible to use specific mushrooms for an after sun milk?

That is technically outside the scope of this mod. However, it should not be outside the scope of this mod to allow you to create such a sun milk.

With my other mods (yes, even I can notice the trend by now :-/ ), I've added or planned an API to allow other mods to directly add or subtract the attribute in question, and to change a "factor". However, since Sunburn works a bit differently than the others (where you burn the secondary attribute before you burn health), I'll have to think about this. Probably make it two "factors".

Then you could try out various things, such as a sun milk that simply removes three "suns" on use, or a PEP effect that reduces the sunburn increase speed by some SPF for 30 seconds. How does that sound?

Changing the sunburn increase speed sounds good.

I still need to test this, but I've got code lined up that handles this. You can change the factor for burning, for damage and for "healing" (i.e. the sunburn decreases again). How does that sound?

Great idea and work :)

Just an idea :
if sunburn is activated (increased) only when players are in desert + sun, maybe it will be more real and add a different gameplay ? It can be a different mod idea or a feature of this mod :p

Hi there! FaceDeer had asked for a mod like this (in the Beware the Dark thread) as part of a post-apocalyptic game idea, so there's at least that use case as well. And HybridDog asked above about a mushroom-based sun milk.

My take is that those additions, like your desert+sun idea, are great, but outside the scope of this mod. But with the recent API, these should be easy to implement in a game (or another mod): simply test periodically whether the player is in such a dangerous biome, and adjust sunburn.set_burn_factor accordingly: 1.0 for danger, 0.0 for safe biomes.

Try it, and let us know how it went!

Interestingly, that's actually perfectly possible. Both mods are "safe" at light levels between 8 and 13 (inclusive). And with the current "torch loophole", you can regenerate sanity (from Beware the Dark) while standing in a torch and not get burnt.

So if you try it, I'd recommend tweaking Beware the Dark to disallow this; then you must get sunburnt to stay sane.

Please do try it, and let us know how it went :-D

Oh, a silly mistake caused a bump to version 0.2.1, by the way: I had included the wrong license file. The code is identical otherwise :-/

Version 0.2.2 released

No new features, just externalized the configuration, and added two example configurations for the Better Hud mod.

I now consider this feature complete, and am preparing to have it moved to "released" status.

try here https://github.com/bendeutsch/minetest-sunburn

I wonder something like snow blindness might be possible. Maybe with a white overlay slowly blocking the view - or simply the fog increasing

I am working on a subgame using both but I reduce speed and damage. I add items which will make sunburn worse and bewarethedark more easy (and vice versa). I think it works.

Did you try the github link provided by Twoelk three posts above yours? It was still active when I clicked on it.

No worries, and it could have easily been down. That is a two year old post. :-}

Is there a way to change the burn speed in settings, or do you have to edit the mod?
