Books counters
« on: January 25, 2018, 06:43:59 pm »
We need books counters which player read. Books counter can be placed in character window in perks section. Each counter for each type of books; small guns, first aid, outdoor...

Why?

Because you no need to remember or write somewhere else how many books you read during gameplay.

So you gonna add it; very helpful (for me will be!).

Thx.

Good one. I agree. Also, when we read books on a character that already has the maximum skill, the book should not work, and thus not disappear from inventory, regardless of how many we have read. For example, if i never read any Scout books, but got my OD to 175 (max) without ever reading them, it is a waste of Scout books to read them at that point since they don't do anything. As things are now though, the Scout book(s) disappear though they yield no benefit.

Second part of your message relates to bug and not suggestion.

As I am new here and not much experience with C++, but just looking over the code, I made few small changes. Should fix problem having max skill and being able to consume the book.

Hopefully Kilgore can drop this in into next patch if its not fixed already.

to Corosive, take this further and add libraries to events that you can read to increase the last few points, instead of normal book.

i havent been around that much lately, but my experience during this session is that books only go away if you get a benefit. if books no longer can up your stats up you get the messiage that "that does nothing". am i wrong?

Like C_Heiter said, you can only use books until the message "This does nothing" appears. Its not needed.
Things just got worse.

Not needed, not useful, and takes up developer's time trying.

I think it is one of those small suggestions which basically is the most useful when it comes to user's experience. I can't see anything wrong that suggestion and it could help some people, especially those who play from time to time and can't remember everything. This isn't hard to implement because it works similar way as implants' counters.

+1 for that suggestion.

No, it is not.

What isn't useful in having books counters which show books which you have read? So, why do we have selected perks in character's screen? It seems to be useless too in your logic. Also developers don't do anything since few months because old bugs aren't still fixed when they could be fixed in one day. There're many bugs which can be fixed in few hours.
