I've made some major updates to the way corpses work. There are a number of changes to go over, but in general, they act much more like 'characters' and less like dumb objects that contain loot you can magically see.
CORPSE NAMES ARE NOW SHORT DESCRIPTIONS
No longer will you see 'The lifeless remains of JoeBaka'. You will now see 'The lifeless remains of a shabby short dude'.
CORPSES HAVE TATTOOS & NAKEDS & CLOTHING
Corpses now act much like character objects do when it comes to looking at them. You will see the standard description that all corpses get (the one that degrades over time) and that will be followed by the clothing/tattoo/nakeds that you would see if the person were alive.
The clothing is 'worn' so it covers nakeds and tattoos. However, you do not need to STRIP the clothing, you can just take it, which will result in the naked/tattoo for that area being exposed. I thought about implementing strip but that honestly seems like a hassle from a game play perspective.
Over time as the corpse degrades you will no longer see @nakeds and tattoos. You will just see whatever clothing the corpse is wearing. This is because there isn't really an easy way to simulate the player written messages degrading that won't make life hell for screen readers.
CORPSES DO NOT SHOW YOU THEIR LOOT
Corpses no longer show you the loot they have on them just because you looked at them. You will have to FRISK the corpse just like you would a person. This is a dead person though so there is no chance you miss anything in your frisk.
OLD CORPSES ARE NOT BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE
For the next week or two, if you encounter a corpse it may be worthwhile to frisk it, as only new corpses will have the clothing/naked/tattoo matrix. This means they might have loot on them that you need to frisk for to actually see. Even if they died wearing their clothing, that won't have been copied over to their corpse.
If you look at a corpse and it contains something lootable, you will see a message about it. This is an indicator it hasn't been picked completely clean. I may remove this after a few weeks once people have gotten used to the changes.
