JErosion Posted November 5, 2014 Share Posted November 5, 2014 Between raiding houses along the coast and cleaning out pantries one can easily survive for some time at the coastal road, but for some reason i can't help but feel like i would like to be able to cook an actual meal in this game. Following hidden recipes in the game rewards you for taking the time and spending the ingredients. And allows you to make "Meal" that acts like those Military grade MREs that have a lot of calories so that once you chose to eat it it will fill you up until your full and then you can save the left overs for later. And Maybe add a temporary buff for the effort, like raising your body temperature. As silly as it seems, it would be another task that you could preform when going outside isn't an option or if its too late to run out.When you start a fire at a stove, fireplace or campfire, lets have options to cook a proper meal based on the quality of the cooking device. If its a campfire you can only cook one thing at a time, but if its an indoor fireplace have two available slots to cook with. If its a proper stove have three. So you have the option to cook two or three pieces of meat at once. But wait you could even balance this with a Cooking Skill. When you first start out it would be best to cook one piece of meat at a time, the more you try to cook at once with a low skill the higher the chance you have to screw up. And instead of having a cooked piece of venison you might wind up with Undercooked Venison(with a higher risk of food poisoning), Overcooked Venison(that has less Calories) or Charred Venison pretty much a loss However with the option to cook more than one thing at once opens the door to cook an actual meals and effectively craft yourself some higher quality food. The Grocery List (to find around town)PotatoesWaxed Cheddar Cheese Block(which you can eat straight up or choose to "Harvest it" and breaking it into smaller wedges that decay faster)Chicken stock (canned)Vegetable soup (canned)Chili powder (also used in crafting of a desperate anti wolf device)Other SpicesVarious other canned fruit(they can even be Pinnachle brand, Pinnachle Apples, Pinnachle Pears)Coffee BeansLike the various game meats, you'd have to cook a potato to eat it. And depending on the stove you could cook multiple potatoes or cook it with other ingredients. So in game it could be listed as POTATO(RAW) ===> POTATO(BAKED), but if you cooked POTATO(RAW)+CHEDDAR CHEESE(wedge) magic happens and you get CHEESY BAKED POTATO. Up the Ante at a really good stove, POTATO(RAW)+CHEDDAR CHEESE(wedge)+Meat of your choice ===> STUFFED POTATO And just keep going with it. WOLF MEAT(RAW)+PORK AND BEANS+CHILI POWDER ===> WOLF CHILIRABBIT MEAT(RAW)+CHICKEN STOCK ===> RABBIT SOUP, cook the Rabbit Soup a second time it turns into a RABBIT STEWand of Course ROASTED COFFEE BEANS+LITER of Water, boom drinkable coffeeits a over simplification, but it would be fun and I bet a lot of you can think of other simple combinations that could be made out of limited suppies Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
