Recently I have randomly been going completely deaf for several hours for no apparent reason. I just get “Your ears start ringing,” and it’s always accompanied by “Your body hurts.” Pain will constantly rise as long as I am deaf, and it’s gotten up to “Unmanagable” at worst.
No other status effects listed, antiparasitic medication does nothing, it doesn’t seem to be coming from the radio tower, and no other loud noises were present. I was not using any guns, so the only loud noises would be coming from exploding boomers and such, and none of them were the catalyst. It just happens while I’m walking around. At one point I thought maybe my Local Wolf Girl was deafening herself with her 155 decibel awoo, but that wasn’t it either. Would’ve been funny, though.
It will keep doing this periodically, apparently until I leave a certain specific area. I haven’t figured out where that is, but I would really like to know.
Another thing I’ve seen is a massive cloud of smoke about twice as large as a smoker exploding. It never goes away, and I can see through it. Still noxious though, and nothing is inside it. Maybe it’s coming from a manhole or something?
I debated where to put this, but I chose here because I honestly don’t know if this is a bug or a feature.
I can’t test it myself, because updating the game just causes it to crash on loading because it doesn’t like my vacuum sealing recipes.
