Bill Tarling Posted August 18, 2014 Share Posted August 18, 2014 While playing, it irks me slightly that I eat a lot of cold beans or meat, even when I have a fire or nice warm stove right beside me.Since "Cold" is always such a factor (and it is hard to get warmed up at times), it makes sense that we would want to eat something warm at times. Besides being easier to digest, it would also help take just a little bit of the chill out.Rather than major overhauls, I was thinking the following might work:If you're beside a fire or lit stove, and you're eating a can of beans -- we can assume you would warm them up first, and should get a very small bonus. Likewise if you pause and eat the freshly cooked meat while it's still warm [and haven't moved on to other tasks or switched tasks -- you need to eat right after cooked]...I'm thinking maybe something like a 10% calorie bonus value for the cooked food (again, it's also easier to eat), and maybe a little bit of short term recovery from the cold.For canned goods, the bonus would only be applicable if eating them near the fire source -- since we could assume you were heating them up, and they're still warm since you are still by the heat source. It would also only apply to canned goods opened using the can opener (since the can would be your cooking utensil) -- smashed cans would not get the bonus.You really wouldn't need to add in a eat hot/eat cold option -- as long as you're by the heat source, it would be safe to assume you cooked the food to eat right away.
