Health bar and hearts do not properly show health

Summary: When taking damage, the health bar in a citizen’s information dialog does not seem to update properly. The number goes down, but the bar remains full. See for examples the attached video at 27:59 or 38:27. Also, the heart popping up overhead that shows damage seems inaccurate, as visible at 38:31 (just above half health, finally loses the first quarter heart).

Steps to reproduce: Just wait for combat and check the numbers to the bar and popup health hearts.


Versions and mods:

Part of the problem is that the team never really wanted to use a visual representation like hearts, and sort of just put a system in place as a temporary solution/boon to the player. It might have become increasingly incorrect as new versions have come out. I’m not sure whether they still want to keep this visual or change it to something else.


Fair point. If it’s a temporary system that will eventually be removed in favor of a body part/wound system like Dwarf Fortress, I suppose it’s not as urgent of a fix for now, if at all.

Same issue as of 393! :slight_smile: Good luck!
