Framework Description
This framework allows other modders to let their bionic parts or implants to change the max HP of body parts.

Note that, normally, when body part max HP is increased, the pain and bleeding rate will both also increase. This mod scales down the bleeding rate in order to avoid nonsensical instant-death sithations due to instant-bleed-out.

However, pain levels are not touched to maintain balance. End users should aim for drugs, implants, or armor to reduce the pain of your soldiers/workers before and during battle.

Known Issues
  • This framework will throw errors if it detects any mod that tries to get the max HP of body parts without using this framework.
  • This framework will continuously throw errors when Moody is also loaded. I am technically unable to fix this problem. Ask the guys developing Moody to have a look, and let them decide if they want to support this framework.

@Vectorial1024: Ah I did not see that my bad, thank you for that, Ill make sure to utilize your framework to its fullest!

The bleed rate bug is already fixed; check the 15 May entry in the change notes.
Glad that my mod may help you!

Hi there, was wondering if you've pushed a fix to the bleed rate bug yet, I am interested in adding features to my mod that would use this mod's framework.

My bad. This really is my bad.

I carelessly called the original method when calculating bleed rate. The "smart" patch method detected that as a violation and so threw the error message.

The patch method also tampered with the results inappropriately, causing the bleed rate to sea-submarine (consider "sky-rocket", but going to the other direction) to -2147 million, which killed people instantly.

The fix will be out soon...

I think a base-game update also might also be causing some instant-bleed-death problems. The logs this mod spits out, when I enable dev mode don't mention any mod names that I can recognise (I've only got < 30, < 20 that I didn't make myself as simple XML), and it's happening for very vanilla-sounding events. Namely, injuries on people in transport-pod crashes, and animals I hunt with a bow or pila - both are bleeding to death in one tick.

Well well well, I didn't expect any conflict with CE in the first place. What even surprised me was that upon unpacking CE, I could see hints of the CE guys experimenting with what this mod is doing! Apparently, they didn't finish their experiments, and left that feature hanging. They were accessing the original max HP using vanilla methods, which I am trying to discourage, hence the error.

The CE incompatibility has quite honestly prompted me to rethink how I should apply the changes. Gimme some time to think about it.

As to the name of the mod, sure thing! Will move the version number away from the title.

Looks like if you use this mod with Combat Extended, it throws a bunch of errors saying CE tried to get body part HP and that this breaks the mod. Indeed it makes any damage taken to a body part make the pawn bleed out instantly, any chance to make it CE compatable?

Also, because your mod doesn't have any defs, the only way to test if it is activated (besides making it a mandatory dependancy) is to use PatchOperationFindMod, which looks for the <name> in the about.xml file, so can you keep that constant for ease of use? You can write the version number in the description or steam page.

I hope to fine-tune the bleed rate adjustment, but for now, the bleed rate is back to vanilla levels, which should suffice usage.

The guide is now available on the GitHub repo.

Ah, yes, that reminded me.
Lemme kind of recollect how this mod works then post a guide; it's been quite a while since I posted this mod XD
