Grasstrample[edit]

How exactly did you come to the conclusion that lower values for [GRASSTRAMPLE] caused more rapid damage to grass? --Quietust 15:55, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Through sheer experimentation. Did you see what a creature with GRASSTRAMPLE:0 does? Check it some day :)--Deon 13:24, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I actually did try using Humans in Adventurer mode. With [GRASSTRAMPLE:0], walking back and forth hundreds of times did not affect the grass at all, while [GRASSTRAMPLE:100] (or 10000) consistently cleared away pristine "dense" grass in exactly 10 steps, and with [GRASSTRAMPLE:90] it randomly took anywhere from 10 and 14 steps to clear away dense grass, suggesting that it's acting as a percentage chance to damage the grass by a specific amount each step. Monitoring the game's memory confirms that the act of trampling a tile of grass reduces its length (which starts at 100 for "dense") by 10. --Quietust 14:00, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
