Game mechanic question
on: June 07, 2019, 01:34:06 PM
Ive been playing the game for a while and I am still finding new stuff
What is the yellow bar that keeps going up and down below your character stats?
And another feature in that bar: what is the human image that glows yellow from time to time?
Thanks a lot in advance :)

Hello and welcome to Spacelords!

That bar is the stress meter. When the bar is full, you can be seen through the walls by enemy AI or the antagonist (the same way you see them). The bar completely fills up if it reaches the human figure. Bear in mind that characters of different factions have a different sensibility to stress (Locals are the less stressed and Umbra Wardogs are always stressed).

The human figure also hides a mechanic. If it is white but has a yellow outline, it means you are too close to the last place where you could be seen through walls, so enemy AI or antagonist will probably go there.

also: when the bar is full, you don't heal. Or the other way around, when the bar is low, you heal. That's why cards like "cold blood" for hades is so good. Not only are you hard to see, but also heal more often.
