    So, I was derping around with creating characters as I do, and realized something. It's kinda unrealistic for characters such as deities or robots, which don't really need to breathe or anything, to be able to pass out via suffocation. Is it possible to create a mod that can be switched on and off that would allow the female character to be completely unable to pass out, even if held down indefinitely?

    Maybe you can use @Pim_gd DialogueActions ( Pim_gd's Mods - DialogueActions v4.02 (1 Mar 2016) | Undertow ) to achieve a similar effect, by resetting her two levels to 100.
    Code:
    restore_breath:""{"style":"Him","set":{"da.breathPercentage":100,"da.oxygenPercentage":100}}
    Then use the trigger like this:
    Code:
    held:"Can't... breathe! *da.breathPercentage*, *da.oxygenPercentage*"{"style":"Thought","next":"restore_breath"}

    Or you could just uncheck the breathing option (see below)

    @sby has a mod called androidbehavior which may interest you. It doesn't specifically prevent the girl from passing out, but it alters her reactions in a way which makes her seem more robotic (which might also suit an alien, ethereal, or divine character).

    The ToggleShock mod can force a girl into a permanent wide-eyed state suggesting "alertness" or "interest". Again, it's not a perfect fit, but it moves away from the default characteristics (generic human anime female) and may therefore help to achieve the desired effect. Either of the aforementioned mods would require tuning (via configuration files) and experimentation.

    ------------------​

    To specifically guard against pass-out, there are a few simple but incomplete solutions.
    • Under the Options menu, disable the Breathing sounds by unchecking the checkbox. This will completely suppress the breathing animation and circumvent oxygen-level calculations.
      • Downside: the girl stops breathing entirely, which may be a more extreme change than what you want. Heavy breathing induces breast motion, which may be desirable.
      • Downside: it's global. Your goddess and robot won't breathe, but neither will your high-school cheerleader.
    • In the Settings.txt file, set the passOutMax parameter to a very high value (such as 9999). The girl will struggle when denied air and her eyelid will droop, but she won't actually pass out (her arms won't go limp and she won't berate the male character for trying to kill her).
      • Downside: the girl still seems to be dependent on air: her struggling hand motions express discomfort and she emits grunting/struggling noises. If you're aiming for a very dignified or aloof character then this approach probably won't be satisfactory.
      • Downside: it's global. Your goddess and robot won't pass out, but neither will your high-school cheerleader.
    • In the Settings.txt file, set the setBreath parameter and breathLevelMax parameters to 0. The girl will breathe normally when her airway is clear, and will express shock at deep penetration, but will never show distress (or pass out) as a result of being denied air.
      • Downside: it's global. Your goddess and robot won't run out of air, but neither will your high-school cheerleader.
    Please note that these Settings changes (and the mods mentioned above) will interact in complex and probably undesirable ways. Activating several of them simultaneously will lead to weird results. Shotgun debugging will be ineffective. I'd advise you to backup your Settings.txt file before starting, and to test each change in isolation before trying to combine them.

    First of all, I can't see that image for some reason. Secondly, oh. I thought that just disabled the sounds, not the entire behavior.

    @stuntcock, thanks. I may look into the "Android behavior" mod, but those other things seem like a fairly effective way to do things.

    @stuntcock Do those settings not work with the "~/mods/<character>/settings.txt" file?

    EDIT: Hm, no, that seems to work. Copy "settings.txt" into you character folder, change the lines that you want in the copy, and remove all the lines that you aren't changing.
