Deep frying deleting things is OP

Postby cacogen » Wed May 27, 2020 8:16 am #562951

Just something I've noticed over the years. It used to just drop the item but that didn't make much sense. No I won't elaborate but I don't think deep frying posibrains and eating them to delete them is good and as far as I'm aware only the nuke disk can't be deep fried

I am pretty sure any items that are rare traitor objectives are protected and can't be deep fried, like CE magboots and secret documents. But you can still deep fry a container they are in and eat the container (Folder that documents come in for example)

Oh okay. Seems like that ever growing list needs some more entries added to it

It is still unclear what this accomplished other than allowing people to delete entire rooms with frying oil grenades and spray bottles

Which by the way still allows you to fry the nuke disk and destroy it, forcing a respawn before it can actually be used

i wrote this in 2018 in the comments of that PR:
>it wouldn't completely solve the issue but you could transfer the item to the mob's contents and have it reappear if they're gibbed
>and actually you could just have items that aren't in the /food/ path cause the person to vomit them back up after a period of time

something i wrote way back i'm not actually cringing at and still agree with

fairly egregious exploit it's a wonder it's gone unfixed for so long
