Possible? -> Severe Cuts need stitches?

hi,

i recently bought the game and i am loving it to death. After some days of playing i am becoming interested in making the game harder in a realistic way.

Medical Treatment for example...is it possible to mod that severe cuts need stitches first or they wont stop bleeding?

that would include:
a new item: needle+suture
when applied on a severe cut -> medium cut -> then you can patch it up with clean rags and the bleeding will stop

needle needs to be disinfected with alcohol or tannin tea or you will get an infection.

is this possible with current modding tools provided? i am not asking if someone will do it, just if its possible. I lack the info whats possible to mod and whats not in the current version of the game. maybe i will get into it.

No, not really. You cannot differentiate between wound types, an item either apply to a wound slot or don't. Just like rags - you can put them on a wound slot whenever it appears, regardless if it is bleeding or not.

You could make different kinds of items to be applicable on the wounds slots (so making a stitching kit is possible) but you could not make them only work on medium wounds, or bleeding wounds, etc. At least as far as I am aware of.

Would that mean that broken bones have their own unique wound slots?

Because I seem to recall that you can only place a splint on a wound with a broken bone and it fails if it's just bleeding or something.

Yes, the "bone" slots are separate, can be broken or bruised, but not cut and so cannot bleed and are not bandage-able.

Yes. That's what I thought, though I had no actual experience with the code so I couldn't say for sure.

Thanks for the clarification.

I'd love to see a "suture kit" item added, even if via a mod (hint, hint, Kaaven! ;) ) as an alternative to slapping old rags on your gaping open gunshot wounds!
