Yell at Azungar for incomplete motives
#16
Can salt increase the thirst motive a lot, if we're going the way of ingestable things working it?

I think a mixture would work best. The average drink like water should be a gradual increase, but something like a saline IV should be instant, for emergency situations.

Salts relation to thirst is complicated. While it might make you feel thirsty immediately, salt also plays a role in water retention and is a key electrolyte.

Salt could spike your thirst, but also boost the effectiveness of water at depleting thirst. Gives you a good reason to have a drink with your meal

I'd like it if motives were slowed down again, in a long round(and they are all long tbh) about midway through one of your biggest time sinks becomes motives unless you game them.

Thanks for the feedback everyone.

I meant the permastun effect, where your energy wouldn't actually increase, even though you were knocked out.

Do you mean all motives across the board, or are there any specific ones you'd like to see slowed down?

Ah, wasn't aware of that. Nevermind.

You can deal with sleep pretty easily(just cram coffee into your spaceman until they twitch) but the worst of it is probably drinks. You cram yourself full of liquids, don't even get to 100% after drinking an outrageous amount of water, then head to the bathroom then have not so long before you have to drink again. Food isn't so bad if there's a chef on or you very un-RP like break in and make better food.

I just added freshly brewed coffee, which gives double the energy regular coffee does and also replenishes more thirst. Maybe this'll encourage people to use coffeemakers more (when available)? If you have any suggestions for other cute flavor things, let me know! I'll look into the feedback people had for motives in a bit.

Increasing the capacity of the coffee pots would be good. They only hold 20u and all of it goes instantly in 2 sips.

Ginger ale does nothing to thirst.

Cryo should restore all motives, because it is annoying to go in for 15 minutes only to return and have to spend the next 10 recovering all your motives

I quite like this. Having salt in your body will decrease your thirst, but it should increase how much hydration that drinks give you.

As a side note, perhaps soda should restore some thirst, but as soon as it finishes metabolizing your thirst drops rapidly for a moment, making it a super inefficient drink.

Sorry I haven't really been keeping up with maintaining motives! Please keep suggesting things, though.

Good idea, added!
