Since version 5181 when addictions got rewritten this
addictions[i].intensity = int(addictions[i].intensity / 2);
addictions[i].sated = 0;
cur_addiction.sated = 0;
Now starting withdrawals take inordinate amount of time.
Each addiction level takes 6 hours now. Before, you could wait out maximum level addiction in 18 hours.
Well 7 to 10 days in rehab is more realistic probably. Guess tweaker is too high maintenance then, not worth 2 points.
At the moment yes
Now that the multiple pool system is the default, tweaker, bum and similar starts can get major buffs.
Starting tweaker with some prozac would give him a fighting chance and be different from other starts which have means to sustain the addiction instead of fighting it.
