Moodlets tell you how your character is feeling, they can effect your character in negative or positive ways. There are nineteen moodlets in the game.


MoodletsEdit

Anxiety

Stress Edit

The anxiety moodle will appear when the player is either sick or surrounded by zombies. Anxiety can be treated by smoking Cigarettes, drinking a Hot Cuppa, creating distance from the zombies, and reading or writing Literature Items. The anxiety moodle often accompanies sickness,

indicating the player character's fear of infection or death. There are currently no negative effects directly caused by anxiety.

Anxious
"On Edge"
Agitated
"Nervous and Jumpy"
Stressed
"Sweaty Palms. Gnawing Fears."
Nervous Wreck
"Terrified"
Bleeding

Bleeding Edit

The character is losing blood from an open wound, either from a

bite or other injury. The severity of the bleeding dictates how quickly the character loses vitality. This moodle can be removed by applying bandages to bleeding body parts, or its have its health drain countered by being fed. Note that zombies can track the scent of blood, so it is best to heal the bleeding as quickly as possible.

Minor Bleeding
"Bandage required."
Slight bleeding from a minor wound. Drops health to 3/4 if left unchecked.
Bleeding
"Strength and speed reduced."

Bleeding from multiple wounds. Drops health to 1/2 if left unchecked.

Severe Bleeding
"Strength and speed severely reduced."

Heavy bleeding from multiple serious wounds. Drops health to 1/4 if left unchecked. Fairly rare.

Massive Blood Loss
"Death imminent"

Massive bleeding that will lead to death unless dealt with immediately.

Moodle bored

Bored Edit

This moodle indicates that the character is bored from

inactivity, and is triggered by standing idle for too long. This moodle can be removed by reading books, newspapers, and magazines; by writing in a journal; by drawing a doodle; and by spending time being active outdoors. As the moodle's intensity increases, so does the risk of becoming unhappy.

Getting Bored
"Occupy yourself, or seek entertainment"

The character is starting to get bored.

Bored
"In danger of becoming unhappy"

At this stage there's a risk of becoming unhappy, the player must find something to occupy with.

Very Bored
"High chance of becoming unhappy"

Higher chance of becoming unhappy, higher priority of seeking entertainment.

Extremely bored
"Very high chance of becoming unhappy"

The character is extremely bored, and the unhappy moodle is iminent.

Moodle cold

Cold Edit

The character has remained out in the rain long enough to

contract a cold. While suffering from the cold the character will occasionally sneeze. Periodic sneezing will make noise

which can attract any nearby zombies to your location where you last

sneezed from, the sound of which can fortunately be dampened with tissues,

preventing that. To use the tissues place them in one of your main

slots. To cure a cold, be sure to eat plenty in order to utilize the healing benefit that comes from being well-fed.

Runny nose
"Occasional sneezing"
The sniffles
"Prone to sneezing"
You have a cold
"Sneezing and Coughing. Speed and healing reduced."
You have a nasty cold
"Sneezing and Coughing. Speed and healing severely reduced."

<!== Re-include when drunkenness is enabled

Drunk

Drunk Edit

This moodlet shows that the Player Character is drunk. This is caused by drinking some sort of alcohol (Whiskey). The only thing that helps the drunkenness of the Player Character is sleep. There are four different types of the drunk moodle:

A Bit Tipsy:
"Had some booze."
Inebreated
"Coordination slightly impaired."
Plastered
"Coordination impaired."
Utterly Shit-Faced
"Coordination severely impaired."
Endurance

Endurance Edit

The character is tired from exerting themselves by running or

attacking too much. This moodle can be removed by stopping and standing still to rest, or by walking instead of running. Being encumbered, even slightly, can substantially increase the rate at which the player tires.

The more exhausted the player is, the longer it will take for them to

recover, which can be dangerous when swarmed. Strength and speed also diminish as the player becomes more exhausted. If the character has the Athletic trait enabled, they will be able to run further without being exerted.

Moderate Exertion
"Take a break."
The character is becoming exhausted.
High Exertion
"Can barely run"
The character is exhausted.
Excessive Exertion
"Can barely walk"
The character is very exhausted. Usually happens after running a

very far distance, when the character is very encumbered or when the

character has swung his weapon repeatedly.

Exhausted
"Can barely move"
The character is extremely exhausted and will walk very slowly.

Usually happens after running a very far distance, when the character

is very encumbered or when he has swung his weapon repeatedly.
Note: The character will still be able to swing every weapon except the sledgehammer.

Encumbered

Encumbered/Heavy load Edit

The character is carrying too many items and is unable to move

at their usual speed. This moodle can be removed by dropping items, placing them in containers, consuming food, or otherwise using up items to reduce weight. The total weight assumes you have no other positive or

negative factors that affect strength, such as the Strong, Stout or

Weak traits. As the moodle increases, the player will be unable to carry out further actions before becoming exhausted, eventually leading to health loss from back injuries.

(Note: The numbers below are for a default, normal status with no Hunger, Thirsty, Injured or Sick moodle and no other positive/negative effects.)
Fairly Heavy Load
Total Weight: 8+
"Carrying a little too much"
The character is encumbered.
Heavy Load
Total Weight: 8+
"Movement speed reduced"
The character is very encumbered.
Very Heavy Load
Total Weight: 8+
"Movement speed highly reduced"
The character is extremely encumbered.
Extremely Heavy Load
Total Weight: 8+
"Threatened back injury. Movement compromised."
The character is extremely encumbered..
Hyperthermia

Sunstruck
"Nauseous, unable to concentrate, and desperate for liquids."
Thirst will increase even quicker. Minor reduction in spacial awareness.
Hyperthermic
"Delirious and horrible death from exposure imminent."
Hypothermia

Hypothermia Edit

The character is too cold due to a lack of warm clothes, staying

outdoors, or cold weather. To combat hypothermia, the character can

wear warmer clothes, stay indoors, or can build a campfire. Although getting higher levels of Hypothermia claims health endangerment, as of the current build there are no negative effects to the health.

The character's spacial awareness is lowered even more.
Moodle Icon Hungover

Hungover Edit

This moodle that pops up indicates that you have been staying

too long outside while or after intoxication. Only solution is to stay indoors. (This moodle does not affect your character.)

Hungry

Hungry Edit

This moodle represents the character's hunger state. A red background dictates that the character needs to eat food.

A green background shows that the character is well fed. Being fed

boosts strength and healing rate, depending on the amount of food consumed, while being hungry has the opposite effect (reducing strength and healing rate).

Also, depending on your Hunger status, your Carrying Capacity will change.

Pain

In Pain Edit

The character is in pain, from a wound or other injuries. This moodle can be removed by using painkillers.

The level of pain is more or less consistent which the severity of the

character's injuries. Having severe pain or agony with near-full health means you may be infected.

slowly and will stab/hit/shoot inaccurately. The character is in so much

pain that he or she cannot sleep.

     
Panic

Panicked Edit

This moodlet shows that the Player Character is panicking. This may be caused by seeing or hearing zombies. Use Beta Blockers or simply get away from the zombie(s) to get rid of this moodle. There are four different types of the panicked moodle:

 Slight Panic
   "Try to stay calm"
 Panic
   "Accuracy reduced."
 Strong Panic
   "Accuracy severely reduced."
 Extreme Panic
   "Accuracy & vision severely reduced."
Sick

Sick Edit

The character has contracted some sort of illness through

consuming raw or bad food or having been bitten or scratched by a zombie. Selecting the hypochondriac trait means that your character will

"feel" the effects of illnesses without actually having them,

eventually returning to normal when they have gotten through the worst of it.

Queasy
"Take things easy"
The character is beginning to feel ill.
Nauseous
"Strength and healing reduced"
The severity of the character's illness is increasing.
Sick
"Strength and healing severely reduced"
The character is feeling strong effects from the illness they

have contracted. From this point on, healing is almost non-existent unless the character is well fed.

Fever
"Increasing danger of death."
The character is severely suffering from the illness, and will

eventually die if they suffer from it for too long without anything maintaining their health. This is also the last stage of the zombie virus before complete, irreversible zombification. If a character has an

illness for a cause other than getting bitten by a zombie- like eating

rotten/burnt/raw food, the character can still die but this death can be

delayed or even avoided by being well-fed and getting enough sleep.

Thirsty

Thirsty Edit

Water is necessary for human survival. If this moodle pops up,

the survivor has not been drinking enough of it. Players need to drink water from their water bottle (done automatically), one of their previously scavenged drinks (done manually), or from the tap (manually). It takes about one and a half days to die of thirst.

Slightly Thirsty
"Dry Mouth"
Thirsty
"Dehydrated"
-1 carrying capacity. The player is growing weaker from thirst.
Parched
"Feeling faint and dizzy"
-2 carrying capacity. The player is even weaker from dehydration.
Dying of Thirst
"Desperate for water"
-2 carrying capacity. The player is in pain and their health is withering away. Unless quenched, death will occur.

Downsy Tired Edit

This moodlet shows that the Player Character is tired. Fixed by sleeping. This also causes the player to be Bored which for now doesn't have any effect .

    Drowsey
       "feeling a little tired."
    Tired
      "Awareness reduced."
    Very Tired
      "Awareness severely reduced."
    Exhausted
        "Will pass out."

Moodle unhappy

Unhappiness Edit

If the player is too bored, he or she will become unhappy. This

moodle can be combated by reading certain items of literature or eating food that combats unhappiness such as pop or chocolate

or by taking anti depressints. This moodle currently has little effect, although it must be noted that it slightly increases the time taken to

complete most actions. Once survivors are re-implemented, talking to them can also help with unhappiness.

Feeling a little sad
"Find a way to raise your mood."
Getting a tad weepy
"Seek some excitement or human contact"
Depressed
"Ravaged by mourning and depression"
Severely Depressed
"Find a way to forget reality"

Moodle wet

Wet Edit

The character is standing in a source where they can become wet (typically rain).

Prolonged exposure can increase the risk in which your character will

get a cold. This moodle can be removed by going indoors out of the rain for a while, standing by a camp fire, or drying yourself off with a dish towel or Bath Towel.

It is one of the few things that does not match how things work in real life, as in real life you do not get a cold from the rain/snow/cold

weather.

"Get out of the rain or you'll catch your death"
The character is slightly wet from being in the rain for too long.
Wet
"Speed slightly reduced"
The character is somewhat wet from being in the rain for too long and moves a little slower.
Soaking
"Speed reduced & chance of catching a cold"
The character is quite wet from being in the rain for too long and may become sick as a result.
Drenched
"Speed severely reduced & high chance of catching a cold"
The character is very wet from being in the rain for too long and is likely to become sick as a result.
