    Default Boulder trap hits water = No Disease?

    I am making bonus levels in my campaign and apparently I have noticed that Boulder Trap hits water, no disease effect is occurred. This happened in Original DK, but not in FX.

    Bug/Taken Off/Or needs to be super close the boulder?


    EDIT: If taken off, can it be switched on somehow on configs?

    I never knew that, and no, nothing like that in the configs.

    How did it work? Creatures standing close would get diseased?

    Exactly, also damage to creatures, when Boulder hits lava and makes a WoP, dealing some heavy damage, ( though it didn't never work really, as coding error, WoP in original DK didn't cause damage)


    I so much remember on original campaign, when it did hit to water and hoping to collect quickly minions to hand to drop safe, but sometimes I got heavy loss on creatures, because I never knew Temple can help to defeat Disease or so

    I just made a testmap, with boulders, lava and water, and ran it in both Vanilla and FX.

    In KeeperFX the boulder explosion in lava does no damage(!!)
    In KeeperFX the boulder simply splashes in water, no disease.

    In vanilla the boulder in lava explosion actually does damage(!!)
    In vanilla the boulder in water splashes like in FX, no disease on my troll(!)

    Are you sure you got your creatures sick from boulders?

    Why else I would avoid boulder and water from my deep memory?

    Maybe it affects only exact creatures? :O


    Now this is critical one I see...hmmmh. Of course, it is about over 15 years or so, but somehow, somehow...


    Oh man...game have fooled all these years? or you just didn't try enough?

    Too bad I can't make it work vanilla one.

    ( Also, did you try very vanilla one? No Deeper Dungeons!, just DK1, nothing else )


    EDIT: What a mystery!


    I played alot of original campaign. A levels, which had water and boulder traps ( not sure anymore in what, maybe in Skybird Trill was the one, if there are boulders )

    EDIT: I know this is going complicated, but man... damn. Try everything what you have. Put spells on. Disease spell was always available. I try one as well.

    I assume the mighty developer itself hasn't touched anything about this? Anyway



    EDIT2: Thinking it again, now I am not sure anymore. :S

    I try to remember from very deep. No, I still remember to take creatures off from the water if boulder activated. Does it act differently, if it is SLAPPED? I try one

    EDIT3: At least FX won't make it any difference

    I don't know your deep memories, but boulders are dangerous (it hurts when they squish you).

    I used the old keeper95 and tried slapping boulders and had them triggered. Only on trolls, but I can't see them being immune to boulder-disease. Boulders reached water right next to the trolls, nothing.

    Think you might be crazy, mang.
    I don't remember boulders causing disease at any point. It doesn't make sense from a logical stand point either.

    Boulder hits water - Splash effect.
    Boulder hits lava - Word of Power (to simulate splashing lava).
