Got asked about the accuracy of the math for heatstroke. It seems to imply that at any temp 5.814 °C over the comfy max temp of a pawn (i.e. 31.814 °C or above), severity will increase at the same rate. Testing it at 50 °C and 70 °C definitely says otherwise - heatstroke severity increases much faster in the second room.

Idk if she (and me too, because I read it the same way) is misreading the statement or if just its wrong. maybe User:AncientCentipede could weigh in

I just checked and it's max(a, 0.000375), not min(a, 0.000375), so higher numbers override the 0.000375, and it only provides a minimum amount that heatstroke can increase by if it's increasing at all. It seems to only have an affect when the ambient temperature is less than 5 degrees above the max safe temperature.

I fixed the incorrect line now, and I'll rewrite this section to improve it in a little bit.

Thanks for that Cheldra. Might be worth looking at hypothermia as well and seeing if a similar mistake was made there.

Indeed, I misread the code and incorrectly intepreted it as capping the severity growth speed instead of ensuring it's at least a certain amount. Thanks for correcting it!
