Yeah the 250 HP is scripted, not normal combat dmg, so Zimmerman is, as the French would say, "le fucked". And yes I don't know what Crafty is thinking with the combat fix thing. But that's okay; we don't have to agree with every change every developer makes. Hell, plenty of people disagree with various things in Fixt. I don't lose sleep over it, but I do try to make it enjoyable to the widest range of players possible; that's the best you can do. I would like to see that feature changed, but if the person working on it says it's how they want it to be, that's kind of the end of the story.
