Thuin Posted October 2, 2014 Share Posted October 2, 2014 Some posts about the stove, food poisoning and a remark about pine needle thee got me thinking about the cooking skill. For example a good cooking skill give you a better percentage of detecting the quality of food. But also lets you play a bit with calorie intake. For example beef jerky gives me a calorie intake of 450. But if I combine that with water and some roots or mushrooms I found while gathering wood and made a stew of that I boost the calorie intake to 800+. For gathering food deer can now be become your indicator that there is food around, or you can chase it away when you see it dig up or eat something. This also adds to the realism of tracking deer, finding out the spots where they feed. Right now the deer are a bit predictable. And to fantasies a bit more instead of one deer make it a small herd, which give you a moral dilemma do I shoot bambi and get less meat or do I shoot the big one but reduce my chances of finding natural food and let the wolf that is chasing this herd eat bambi anyway. Which gives wolf a bit more realism because they are following the herd and is for me an indicator that there are deer around and vice versa. And overshooting the deer population will result in lesser wolfs. But will also reduce you change for your next winter coat or that new furry underwear you saw that model wear in that magazine before you made tinder out of it.And last to make cooking more diverse add things like sugar (short energy boost), salt (to preserve meat and fish), flower, coffee (short boost to exhaustion). Most of those things can be found in a household and can add to you calorie intake. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
