SCUM update 0.6 (Hotfix 0.6.2.37976) is now available to download on PC. According to the official Scum patch notes, the latest update added heavily requested features and bug fixes.
Previously, a major update added a long list of new changes, bug fixes, and gameplay changes.
Unfortunately, players are still experiencing several issues since the last major patch. Today’s SCUM patch 0.6 will address a few of these errors.
From now on, you will be able to collect and drink rain.
All you have to do is take any viable water container, like a water bottle, and leave it outside while it rains. Although you can leave a regular bottle, it will fill quite slowly so we’re introducing a few new items to help you collect the rain faster.
You can cut all of the bottles in half and use them to collect rain, just don’t put them in your inventory/hands while they have any water in them because the water will spill.
You can also craft an Improvised Raincoat Water Collector which has a whooping 30 L of capacity.
Here’s a pro tip, even though you can’t bring the new water collectors with you, you can pour the water to regular bottles and canteens and take them instead.
Oh, and you can also collect water in pots and buckets!
New Body Effects
So, now that you have water to get sobered up, you can also get drunk..because why wouldn’t you?
We have re-implemented and improved Drunkenness which now occurs if you have more than 0 g of alcohol in your blood.
The maximum alcohol amount in the prisoner’s body is determined by the Constitution attribute and the blood amount in the body. Once you reach the max alcohol amount, you die.
This means you can now have proper drinking contests with your crew! (in-game please)
Being drunk introduces a couple of “difficulties” for every prisoner, including Double Vision, Disorientation, and Dizziness. It will be tough to see what’s happening, move straight, you will probably puke, and you may have occasional blackouts.
Disorientation will also make your compass HUD disappear, but only the one you got from the Survival skill. If you have a compass item, you will still have the HUD.
Treatment is pretty straight forward, stop drinking and flush all of the alcohol from your system by any means possible.
Imagine this, you get drunk with your friends, buds, pals, and you decide to go hiking wearing only barefooted, or even worse, in crocs. Not such a smart idea.
From now on, if you walk barefooted you will get Foot Abrasions after a short period of time, and if you wear shoes they will get damaged depending on the terrain difficulty.
So yes, please follow the instructions showed on the image below verrryyy carefully, because nobody will come and save you on The Island.
Movement speed, carry weight and terrain difficulty will influence how much abrasions will you get and how much do your shoes decay (wetness is also a factor for shoes decay). Foot Abrasions come with symptoms such as Pain and even Bleeding (starting on C2 severity).
The pain will reduce your movement speed and you maximum pace to the point where you can only walk but it can be dealt with by taking painkillers.
If there is no bleeding, treatment consists of resting and putting on footwear. It is also advisable to use other movement types such as swimming or driving as they don’t scrap your feet.
If there is bleeding, you can use the same medical items for treatment as you would for Bleeding Injury, but there is something more!
By using items to treat the condition, you get Bandage Protection which primarily serves to stop the condition from progressing, but beware, the protection wears off if you continue to move (see the protection level in the condition’s tooltip). Bandage Protection is needed only if you still continue barefooted, the best solution would be to put on some shoes.
You better shake the drunkenness off before this part, believe me.
You maybe have fast hands in real life, but do you have them in-game too?
From now on you will have to manually load each and every magazine, bullet by bullet.
Reloading speed depends on your DEX attribute as well as Rifles or Handgun skills respectively. You can stop the reload by pressing Esc or LMB, with the exception of the M1 clip.
A feature heavily requested by the community!
From now on, you can disassemble all weapons and use the parts to repair another weapon.
To disassemble weapons, you will need a Toolbox. All weapons have their own disassembled parts meaning that if you dissemble a Kar98, you can only fix another Kar98 with those parts.
Also, if you have any attachments equipped on your weapon, they will fall on the ground upon disassembly.
