Title: drunk code
Post by: Potaje on May 09, 2018, 09:51:51 PM
would be cool if the drunk code began to slur your speech the more drunk you became. sometimes I find it hard to add that in myself and think, wow how cool if it was more natural. So I could talk like I would normally but it doesn't quite make it out as intended, which would be pretty real. But perhaps far to much work.

Or put a descriptive tag according to the level of intoxication

or instead of only falling down you staggered in the wrong direction

Or if it did an automatic "change mood weepy" from time to time.

And sent you feels.
You feel like crying.
You feel like you love everyone.
You scrappy.
You feel like you're leaning to the side a bit too much.
You feel your head loll forward.

For totally plastered though, not for just drunk.


Fun code change. I love fun code!

I think it put speech over the command line limit before and caused crashes.

I seem to recall that the drunk code used to slur your speech, but then it was removed.

It is very easy to manually do it.  What if you speak more 'correctly' in another language when you're drunk?   I know it happens to me when I speak french.

There are many different kinds of drunks. I don't like the idea of forcing people to respond to intoxication in a certain way.

Never thought of that. I think there's only one universal 'totally plastered' though, least what I've witnessed, heh.

Shaleah's idea of how being totally plastered affects feels lines up with my personal experience. Unsure if that's just coincidence or not.

I hate the drunk code. As a long-time drunk I haven't just fallen down in decades.

I am a lifelong alcoholic! I can drink and drink but if I have an ale I will fall down when I walk.

I agree the falling down thing is a bit jarring.
