Seeing Exhaustion in other players
Too Tired, or waiting for buddies?

I would like some sort of message of obvious exhaustion from another player if they are trying to do something.

Why? Because sometimes when you request something from an exhausted player (a mugging, for example) they just sit there in silence because they player is trying to do the action. Sometimes they can't talk because their so tired. Sometimes they can't emote because emoting takes stamina. So they just sit there unable to really communicate their situation. Hell, even sometimes slow typers like myself try to make a show of their exhausted situation with emotes only to be shown that you're too tired to do emote it.

While we should always strive to emote and make the gameplay a little more theatrical, I can't deny that time is always an issue. The more time that passes, the more possibility that others are going to find out you're mugging and try to stop you or his buddies are going to come back him up.

The only real big con I can think that can happen from this, is a LOT of spam from the exhausted players from all the actions they attempt to make while tired.

Anyway, just an idea.

Interesting idea. It could be a passive thing like "obvious distress".

A filthy chummer is suffering from vicious wounds and looks tired as fuck.

Maybe not always displayed, but when it gets to extremes? You'd probably be able to tell when looking at someone irl if they are so beat that they can't even open their mouth.

You can talk when you're completely exhausted, can't you?
If you're super exhausted it comes through as something like @genericshroudednpc#3452, "S....S....t...yo..*gasp* Cur...*Gasp*..T...
I do think having a status in the description would be good, not just for exhaustion but if you see someone bruised and battered or bleeding. These would be the first things you'd likely notice.
It was done because cheese dick players trying to decide when they were tired. Every action had to have a cost or half of you would be bitching the other half isn't acting right.

Respect the code, don't work around it.

You already can emote while you are heavily exhausted using ':' instead of '.', RP properly though.
Given that you can always speak and others will see your struggle, no feature change is needed here. Try to say something icly and respond icly, it is not an ooc situation.
