Several days ago I’ve started playing C:DDA. At first I’ve downloaded stable version and after couple of dozens dead characters I’ve made up one who lived long enough and was interesting enough to me. After two in-game years and about 2000 kills (mostly with my RV) I’ve decided to move to experimental and start over with the same character build. And I noticed there no longer was profession I choosed (Poor student) nor one of traits I liked (Inconspicuous). I’ve checked json files with mutations and found said trait there. So here are my questions.
Is Inconspicuous trait actually do anything?
If I add “starting_trait” : true in its entry will I be able to purchase it during character creation?
Inconspicuous was removed since it didn’t actually do anything (not anything, just a very ancient function that didn’t make sense). Back when the trait was still a thing, choosing it would only make it so that NPCs would not spawn near you and I am not even sure if it actually worked properly.
How many points did inconspicuous cost? I like to take light step and weak scent, which makes it a bit harder for monsters to detect you (from scent and sound at least) I guess, making you a bit less inconspicuous. It sounds like those two are what you want and the inconspicuous trait wasn’t actually doing anything for you from the other replies here, so maybe give those a try.
