Walking over lava?!
« on: April 05, 2010, 20:40 »

I don't know when this started, but at some point during my AoSg game I stopped taking damage from lava -- it just acted like regular ground when I walked on it, with no "argh, lava!" message.

I was wearing the phaseshift boots, so I thought that perhaps this was a new effect/behaviour added, but even when I took them off I continued to walk normally over lava.

It made The Lava Pits a lot easier :)

I'll attach my mortem just in case it helps track down this bug; stupid Cyberdemon killed me :(

Erm...I don't mean to judge, but the mortem can be put in the mortem tags (look for the button with the DoomRL logo) and pasted directly into the post.  No need to .rar it.

I've heard of other people mentioning that planeshift boots can produce the hovering quality that should occur work when both pieces are on, which continued to persist without the boots.  If there's anything else you can mention (what other equipment you happened to be wearing, any mods, were you knocked into the lava at any point) that wouldn't be listed in the mortem, I'd do that as well.

As a counterargument, I managed to find planeshift boots in a standard HMP run today but still took normal floor damage while walking across lava: I just hope it's not at random.

Walk on lava is a Phaseshift Set effect. However, the set effects seem to be quite buggy -- I will look into it for the 0.9.9.2 release.

P.S. raigan? **the** raigan? :D

Sorry about that: I was wearing red armor, modded but I don't remember if it was A, T, or B (I had three different sets.. the RNG liked me :) ).

I only noticed it when I was knocked into lava, I forget by what. Taking the boots off and still walking over lava was really weird!

p.s - I'm _a_ raigan, I don't know about "the" raigan :p

raigan: Did you have just one pair of Phaseshift Boots, or did you have two, and replace one when the first was close to breaking? There was a similar issue not too long ago involving the Gothic set effect triggering without the armour.

@Kornel Kisielewicz: everyone wants that :D

@UnderAPaleGreySky: I only had the one pair; in my inventory I also had a Malek's armour, but that was the only other unique. Previously I was wearing plasteel boots, but I dropped them when I found the phaseshift boots (which are now 4 protection, hooray!).

When I took off the phaseshift boots I was wearing no boots, and I could still walk across lava with no damage. I assumed that walking on air was a new effect of the boots and that the bug was that it persisted when the boots were removed.

I only walked without boots for a bit though, just to test it; I put them back on to tackle the Lava Pits, just in case.
