Hunger/Thirst

Postby Tepes » Sun Aug 06, 2017 9:46 pm

Okay. I'm just wondering if we can get back the messages that we're thirsty or hungry. Cus I won't check for a while and notice that I might be close to dying of hunger.

Yes. This has been previously reported and is on my list. It's not very high on the list, but it's there. :)

It also seems to be running at a pretty high rate. Went through 18 coppers of a 20cp payday just keeping fed on the inn progs.

Yeah, the speed you become hungry/thirsty when moving around a lot or fighting seems a bit excessive.
A really bad sword with a short blade lies here.
look sword
This sword hardly even a sword. It's kind of really just a piece of metal bent like a sword. Its blade is rather short. Kind of pathetic, really.

Yeah I spent about an hour getting someone organized and realized I was dying by chance XD

You are hungry.
You are starving!

Hunger and thirst seem to build up insanely fast. I'm having trouble actually keeping enough liquid around for a PC.

Agreed with the above posts. My character seems to go from stuffed & completely sated to death pains in under a couple RL hours. I feel as though I spend all of my time IG eating or doing things so that I can eat.

I personally like how fast hunger/thirst builds up.

The change I would like to see is for water/beverages to quench your thirst significantly more so that it is easier to carry supplies to satisfy your bodily needs.

I would say apply this to food as well, but I've noticed a wide variance how much foods satisfy hunger that I think generally makes sense. It is pretty easy to keep your hunger down if you carry the right foods.

I moved 5-10 rooms. I went from sated to hungry. Quenched to thirsty. I don't know if you do much moving, crafting or fighting. But it goes down way too fast. I have to keep drinking/eating every 10 RL minutes to keep any sort of status upkeep.

And it does not tell you when you're either hungry or thirsty. So you have to keep spamming score.

I would agree that it goes down a bit too quickly.

Would be nice to get echos of being 'a little hungry' or just hungry in general, when it starts dropping. Same for thirst.

I notice it only echos when you're 'dying of hunger' or 'dying of thirst'. Then it's like "Oops!"

I'm going to be reducing calories burned and water used to 33% of its current level.

That means, based on 3000 calories, you could walk up to 200 rooms before reaching 0, (15 calories per room) now you can go 600 (5 calories per room).

Water level (full) is 300, you could walk 100 rooms before reaching 0 (3 units per room). Now you'll be able to walk 300 rooms before 0 (1 unit per room).

FYI - Fueling requirements are dependent on your size. Someone that weighs 200 pounds is going to have to eat and drink twice as much as someone who weighs 100 pounds to top off your reserves.

Another FYI - You do burn calories when you're just sitting still as well, just not nearly so quickly as when you're fighting or walking around.

This will go live after the next binary update. (probably tonight or tomorrow).
