Hunger is the value representing how well fed your character is and affects the speed of regeneration of major attributes. Hunger is depleted by Hard Stamina regeneration. If the hunger status bar reaches zero it will start to deplete your Soft HP resulting in a hunger fainting and death.
Food Multiplier[edit | edit source]
The game server stores the Food Complexity of last 5 meals your character has eaten. The sum of these numbers are used in the calculation of Food multiplier.
The Food multiplier directly affects amount of increase of ALL of your skills. The Food multiplier consists of two parts: Hunger and Complexity summed over the last five meals eaten. Food multiplier formula is as follows:
FoodMult = Last5MealsComplexity × Hunger × 0.0001
Take a look on that table of possible food multiplier values:
Last 5 meals Complexity
In brief, gathering mushrooms and berries, then catching fish and frying it will be more than enough to survive and obtain maximum attributes regeneration speeds. But if you want to significantly increase the progression of your skills, you should eat complex meals from a good cook or become a good cook yourself.
Food Complexity[edit | edit source]
Food complexity depends on how many ingredients were used in the cooking process. The more ingredients of a given meal, the greater the complexity of that meal. Complexity is calculated when eating food.
- Example: If you start with a fish which has 100 quality, then fry it and eat it, you will end up with 20 complexity of your eaten food. But if you begin with the same quality fish and add with quality 100 potatoes, onions, wine and cabbage (five ingredients!!!), the result could be fish stew with 100 quality and 100 complexity once you will eat it. Five ingredients is the maximum you can use per recipe.
Simply put, max complexity is calculated from the number of ingredients in the recipe. 20 complexity per ingredient. Resulting complexity is a fraction of the max based on food quality. Food quality is averaged from the qualities of the ingredients, skill, device, and tool used.
The formula for determining the complexity of cooking food:
Max Complexity = Number of ingredients * 20 Result Complexity = (Quality / 100) * Max Complexity
5-ingredient foods will always have complexity = quality.
- Example: If you make a quality 65 "Fried Salmon Patties" (60 max complexity,) your resulting complexity would be:
65 / 100 * 60 = 39 Complexity
