How safe is mutating in a toxic waste dump?
« on: March 11, 2017, 05:45:56 AM »
     I have robust genetics, which makes me assume that radiation mutation is a lot safer than before. I wanna be a mutant, cyborg, but it is a pain in the butt to get to the right cooking level for mutagen, so while i wait, why not radiation? I know it gives you a much higher change of negatives, but that is why there is save scumming! But just how dangerous would it be to do that? and what creatures are in there also?
     (I'd assume that a toxic waste dump would be radioactive, but I could be wrong I guess tho...)
     Also, in terms of followers, how safe is it for them? I want mutant followers too, since I can't have cyborg followers that i know of. (I wish that followers could potentially come with traits too. Then you could MEAT fellow cannibals!)
      This could all just be a horrid idea of course, but eh.
I was wondering why that zombie brute was getting bigger, then it hit me...

Radiation will kill the hidden health stat - if you start waking up with "holy fuck that feels horrible", that was probably radiation.
But if you don't need to regen fast and aren't scared of flu, the only thing you need to care about is that you don't get so irradiated that you start losing hp. Same for followers.

     Does your HP stay low? Or does the radiation end up going away enough that your 'hidden HP' goes back to normal? I got 154 base HP, so low on health should not be a problem for a long time. (I know that from my strength skill, not from that specific trait which gives your exactly HP).
     In terms of enemies tho, what is there? Or is the toxic waste dump just full of toxic waste? I dodge almost every melee shot cuz of my dodge skill and i got some pretty good armor, so fights aren't usually too hard, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared!
     Is there any particular things i should pay attention to in terms of healing my followers? They refuse to take any drugs I give them, so I doubt they would take tho anti-radiation ones. But i have infinite disinfectant which can heal any non-bleeding wound so healing isn't a problem.
     ( i don't know what's up with it, but disinfectant never gets used on my followers, first aid kits and bandages do get used tho.)
