Slower Colds is maily intended to stop the annoying "instant" colds in Outward.
Outward has a very slow 2.5 minute (1 in game hour) check frequency for cold infections, which is probably why the chance is so high at 35%. The issue is that the first check usually happens immediately upon reaching the temperature threshold, meaning a fair amount of the time you will immediately catch a cold the moment you hit 40 temperature (
Needs: Cold), which is a bit unrealistic and heavily punishes momentary temperature drops.
Slower Colds implements a more frequent check with a lower infection rate, smoothing out the curve, while also allowing minimum times before infection can happen. It checks for
Needs: Cold or
Needs: Very Cold instead of temperature, and uses the found status's age as timer.
The default values for
Needs: Cold create a curve similar to vanilla without the sudden large front loaded jumps and a 30 second minimum, while
Needs: Very Cold has twice the infection chance and no minimum time. Both check every 30 seconds instead of 150.
Needs: Cold and
Needs: Very Cold each can have their own values for the following:
Chance: percent chance of catching a cold
Min Time: minimum time before the first check
Check Frequency: how often to check again
