Basically used cheats to kill one tentacle (i was fighting the end-boss) that took one of my hearthlings, but it was far away and i didn’t want to send a soldier to go kill it, because it just wouldn’t arrive in time. So i used ‘destroy’ console command on the tentacle, and now my hearthling is stuck in an endless-loop of being “Snared by a tentacle”. He dies, revives, dies again, revives…
Steps to reproduce:
Engage the end-boss fight.
Wait for your hearthling to get captured by a tentacle.
Kill the tentacle, while it has the hearthling, with ‘destroy’ console command.
Your hearthling is now endlessly ‘stuck’ with that effect.
Hearthling is simply released from the tentacle.
Hearthling is stuck with the “Snared by a tentacle” effect.
Even if the guy is picked up, placed in a bed, wakes up, he will still slowly die.
This whole thing has actually happened to me without killing the tentacle by cheating but properly. The ling was carried to bed and stuck there with that eerie animation looped… Some Lua console trickery helped.
