Why hunger when you have thirst! I know this has been mentioned before, but this is a different approach.
There is a thirst bar beneath the hunger bar in the stats. Eating all food except fruit and vegetables will make you thirsty. Everyday work and being in the desert will also make you thirsty. Sleeping will slightly make the bar go down, and being in water will stop the bar from going down (it will not make it go up, just not make it go down.)
Thirst will have the same debuffs as hunger.
Starting the game
Eating fruit will bring the bar up a bit. So will drinking buckets of water.
At crafting bench level 2, you can make a juicer.
1 bucket of water
(Tough luck if you can’t find apples or oranges anywhere )
Another useful recipe:
In a Kiln:
Fill it with something.
-What you can craft-
In addition to it being able to craft it in electric stoves, coffee and all coffee ingredients can be crafted in the juicer.
Water, but better!
1 glass cup
1 bucket of water.
It regenerates twice the amount of thirst than just drinking a bucket of water. In other words, Drinking normal seawater isnt very healthy, just like eating raw meat. Purified water is twice as efficient. (Water fills 3/8 of the bar, purified water 3/4). Moving on…
squeeze it out of fruits.
1 glass cup
Either one of these fruits (similar to a compost bench, as you can make compost with every kind of fruit, you can make juice with most fruits too.)
2 mangos (mangoes?)
Basically anything but chilli (chili?) peppers.
For example, you can make juice with a glass and 2 apples. You can also make juice with a glass and 2 oranges, etc. you get my point.
Drinking juice restores all of the thirst bar.
So, instead of one, you got two things to worry about! Yay!
