Ok I will do my best to lay out the idea.
Core features will be the some NPCs, or just raiders, will be able to take Med-X,
but instead of increased DT, they are capable of surviving a lost limb.
I would say this applicable, because of how Raiders are generally prior soldiers/mercenaries,
to Junkies addicted to chems. Both people, (as a general idea) could be susceptible to chems,
such as Med-X, due to it's numbing effects.
- NPC's (specific to raiders) Will be able to lose limbs and
continue the fight, under the condition they take Med-X
- They can go into a beserker state if they have lost a limb
i.e. swapping from gun to melee weapon, but can still shoot.
- It will be off chance and possibly choice of weapon, with certain status effects
i.e. Physical bullets, pellets, or explosions, will create a bleeding effect from a ripped arm,
while lasers will have a much lessen bleeding effect, due to cauterized wound.
Some pros and cons
+ Humans will appear properly and severely crippled
+ Variation between weapons of choice, being Physical and Laser, a ripped and cauterized wound
+ Drug addict raiders will be as crazy as they should be, without the need of extra DT
+ Makes crippled enemies either properly incapacitated, crippled or disarmed: D
+ Entertainment of a armless raider, angry at you for shooting their arm off, trying to be the black knight
~ Maybe be applied to super mutants?
(these are subjective to opinion as well)
- Weapons with increased crippling damage, could break, and make this over powered
- Weapons, such as High dmg pistols, that cripple within 2-5 shots, can seem unrealistic
- Low level enemies can be crippled within the first few shots
- It could potentially make certain places, with high lever enemies, even tougher to kill.
If it can actually be done at the time of this post. Yay the creation kit!
> Maybe the condition, can be applied to super mutants
> Placed under specific conditions, such as NPC must take Med-X, to not fall unconscious
due to shock. Or it could be a general game feature, but it wouldn't be realistic.
> It could be applied to specific enemies, or just to everyone. Although it wouldn't be all that
realistic if a bunch of BOS were taking Med-X.
> This would most certainly not be able to apply to people in Power suits, unless you were
to make the arm just go ragdoll, and that, would be hilarious.
I loved how you could shoot the limbs off of many enemies in this game, and I couldn't get
enough of it, but unfortunately I don't possess the skills to make a mod such as this, so I am
posting this to anyone who is-like minded and just want to hear that someone out there wants
it too, or if other people do too.
Thanks, also apologies if I don't reply. Why? because I'm just pitching this.
Because of the recent announcement of the Creation Kit, I figured it would be appropriate to try and bump it, to give anyone who would like this, a try.
Also feel free to Post opinions on this, and if you have any Lore related guidance, or real world facts, with reference, it would probably help shape this concept better.
