Misleading radiation warning

Mr. Fusion 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 2

When a radiation storm starts while the player is on EVA, the "Radiation Zone" warning appears on the HUD as if the player was approaching the map boundary, instead of the "Radiation Storm" warning that appears on the HUD when the player leaves a habitat while a storm is already in progress. (Or at least that's what used to happen in 0.64.1, being short on time I didn't test if that's still correct and it's not some new issue which affects that warning too.)


This should be fixed for the next update, which will be a quick patch in the next few days.

This doesn't appear to be (completely) fixed in 0.64.2p1. There are some behaviour changes but it's mostly inconsistent.

Here's what I observed:

  1. Radiation storm started while on EVA during the night, "Radiation Zone" warning appeared as before instead of "Radiation Storm".
  2. Entering the radiation zone on the map edge the first time didn't result in any change.
  3. Entering the radiation zone a little later a second time caused the warning to change to "Radiation Zone + Storm".
  4. Even after leaving the radiation zone the warning remained "Radiation Zone + Storm" through the rest of the night.
  5. At sunrise (I'm guessing when the radiation went from the night time low to the day time high value) the warning finally changed to "Radiation Storm".
