Nutrition value of squirrels and other elementary foods
Recently, I played a guy with (negative) metabolism and was starving.
So I thought, some squirrels coocked over campfire should do the trick.
I ate 12 squirrels at once, but this was not sufficient to get me out of starving status.
Is this intended ?
Over all, I did not find any item to be of great nutrition value.
Even soup nor blinkies do significantly add to the hunger bar.
And compared to it's nutrition value, spawning of food is relatively sparse.
One of my other characters died of starvation because he was not able to find any (or at least enough) food for days .. and he had trapping as well as botany skills. I guess, this was bad luck, because all ruins did not yield food, forrests were seldomly scavengable and scavenging plains resulted in numerous white berries and death caps. Well, it was thrilling and exciting (even more than dogmen) .. but in the end also frustrating. Well, I would have liked to eat my boots instead of starving.
Will there be high calorie foods in the game, too ? Like chocolat bars, bacon strips, fastfood restaurants (would be cool for mechanics trait to get the deep fat fryer running and put in all those yummy frozen french fries, or for electritian trait to repair the microwave oven to get the frozen burgers ready), birthday cake, and lots of home made recipies and ingredients ?
I'd love to prepare some mushroom-squirrel-stew and have some root jelly with wild bee's honey frosting and red berry sauce as dessert.
