Banned from DMC

I'm not sure if this is an official bug, but I was wearing the clown head mask when I was banned from the DMC. The guard called a sniper who identified me. It seems that he wouldn't be able to tell who I was with a clown head on. The same thing happened with the DMC mask on another game for me as well.

I am that low life scum that hunts down a scavenger, laughs as he tries to surrender, beats him to death with my club, and eats his gummy bears before moving onto the next sucker.

They implant a tracker when they exile you, so I assume that's what gets used to identify you.

I assume he's asking about how he got exiled in the first place.

He knows the sniper that got called by a DMC guard identified him and was the cause of his exile when he then visited the city, but at the time the sniper was called he had on a mask that covered his whole head. So he wants to know if that's an oversight that you're able to be visually identified despite things like that.

The way snipers auto-exile you is definitely game-y. I don't know if Dan plans on revisiting that. Or rather I should say I know it's on his long list of things to look into, but I don't know how high of a priority he considers it with his dwindling timeline to work on the game.

Yes, that's what I'm talking about. Thanks for clarifying. I hope he does revisit it, because that would make being able to ambush a dmc guard in the forest actually a viable course of action. I'll see if anyone can mod it in.

Yeah, it's on my list. And if I recall, I think it's even on my "short list" (i.e. things I definitely want to address before launch).

It may be closer to the bottom of that short list, though, as there are some bigger problems near the top (e.g. mod merging, missing encounters, skill balancing, etc.)

What really sucks is when you are moving around at night (NVGoggles) and a DMC guard stumbles into you. I started hidden, so my first move was to reveal myself. His first move was to call for a Sniper. I entered dialogue the next turn, but on my next trip to DMC I was exiled FOR NO REASON. Me and my (finally!) $5600 for implants were SOL. I was framed I tell ya!

Needs work. This was a game-ending bug AFAIC. With no feasible way back into DMC, I was forced to abandon a save with 7 hours of work. I'll not be playing again until it's identified and fixed.

That's a good point: it does break the critical path for players trying to follow the plot. I've bumped up priority.
