|My Norn won't wake up [C2] |
So I know this may be a long shot, I'm not sure how many active geneticist folks are here, but I'm wondering if anybody could help me with a sleeping issue I'm having with one of my favorite female norns, Goldie.
She is a second generation mix of a Golden Desert Norn and another basic Hatchery Norn (I'm not sure the breed name, I believe she was grey?), currently just over 4 hours old.
She has pretty much always had less than stellar health, but up until about an hour ago she was doing well, and then she fell asleep and has been unable to wake up ever since.
I've done everything I can think of to wake her up including decreasing her sleepiness and tiredness, injecting her with energy and life, slapping her, having the hand say her name or telling her to wake up.
A few weird things I've noticed:
During sleep her sleepiness doesn't decrease, eventually the meter gets completely full.
She has always had a chronically low body temperature, resting it's usually 28C, the only way she warms up is if I inject Hotness.
When I give her commands she will respond as if she is awake, and occasionally she will open her eyes for a second, but then she will keep on sleeping.
She sleeps in the same posture, just standing straight up, not changing at all.
I've tried exporting her once and my game just totally crashed but I'd be happy to try again or try to track down her files if anyone would want to take a look at her. I'm so perplexed, and sad because she's one of my faves.
Sleeping is quite a major issue with Creatures 2, but if she's actually sleeping and won't wake up, then it sounds like she might be suffering from what is known as "sleeping beauty disorder", which is usually caused by a mutation. I don't think there's much you can do to help her, I'm afraid.
Neither look forward where there is doubt nor backward where there is regret. Look inward and ask not if there is anything outside you want, but whether there is anything inside that you have not yet unpacked.
