    This project might be one of the most ambitious I've ever encountered in the modding world, wow.

    I think I've found a bug: I'm attempting to do the quest where I find the serial killers that wiped out Cleveland. I get a random encounter outside of Cleveland where there are three hostiles: two are named "survivors", the other one is a "hunter." I can kill the survivors just fine, but nothing I've tried will hit the hunter. The percentage to hit is always at 0% no matter how close I am or what weapon I'm using. Is this intentional, or has something gone wrong?

    Thank you, and I can't wait to explore this more and give longer thoughts.

    Hi there! Thanks for the comments yess :D

    Yep, that's intentional unfortunately. Random encounters are heavily bugged because of the engine. For example, a fraction of the objects they hold loose their tagname and it creates problems inside my mod. I had to remove most of them. Also, I soon realised that friendly random encounters can be attacked and killed without them attacking you back, ever. I found that a bit stupid and decided to make the friendly random encounter immortal instead. For those two reasons, random encounters are now a bit underused in my mod. I even thought for a moment about removing them completely, but they still add some kind of flavor to the game, so I kept them.
