Characters will need to poop in Star Citizen....

That's right, in the latest ATV they confirmed that having to go for a poop will be something your character needs to do, what bloody idiocy...

Long term diseases etc, sounds like Murray when he was prattling on about creating every molecule for a planet's atmosphere. Someone needs to tell these idiots to shut their mouth and just make the damn game instead of fantasising about all the possible things they could put in if they had 100 years to spend on development.

    A wiping mini-game perhaps? Space plumber profession confirmed?

    Well however long it takes to get this implemented is OK. It's QoL improvements like this that make the wait worth it.

    Hey!  He saw it in some other game, so they had to  have it.   And you can spend your time on the can checking things out on your Mega Watch!

    Does make me wonder.....is taking a dump instanced?

    Really, sometimes things should just be abstracted out.

    If you are holding out for the perfect game, the only game you play will be the waiting one.

    ...How on earth is this QoL...? O.o

    Then again... I guess it WOULD lead to a better quality of life... no constipation and all...

    Now you can really say SC is the sh*t.  :D

    I guess the poop deck on your ship will be a real thing.

    I'm going to object if you have to go to toilet to do it. If it's not your spaceship you should be able to do it wherever as long as you aren't caught or it's not realistic.

    Well on the tier of survival mechanic this was created for stamina/breathing, the rest is status effects.

    But they do mention the need to Eat, Shower and use a bathroom, but don't expect that to be any imposing side of something like having to eat something once or twice a day otherwise debuffs apply, wouldn't it be reasonable? The other debuffs, like toxic environments and such, would be pretty normal to have here.

    Things like "long term diseases" would hit on the https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/engineering/12879-Death-Of-A-Spaceman design doc where you do are meant to get permanent damage to your character as you die.

    But I always found amazing the number of people whining their ship didn't have a toilet :D

    Will you be able to use the bio-waste to grow potatoes and other food sources?

    Also will they use toilet paper in the far flung future or will Chris finally explain how to use the three seashells? A question that has bugged countless people since the first showing of The Demolition Man

    A massive fleet of enemy ships appears...
    Player 1: I think I'm gonna shit myself...
    Player 2: Yeah... I think we're dead...
    Player 1: What? No! It's this stupid timer again! Take over the controls and get us the fuck out of here while I hit the bathroom!!!

    Or... Space Diaper!

    They mentioned this before in terms of status, the actual timer here is oxygen and its simulation but this, like Hunger or even Showering, would be more a slow non-imposing debuff.

    This isn't being added now, it's just something planned.

    What was added, and for 3.0, is Breathing & Stamina, that adds atmospheres to ships and rooms and simulates oxygen consumption.

    I like this for FPS play, it is full run everywhere with no consequence whatsoever right now, this should slow stuff down to be more strategic, having your actions and your gear impact your stamina.

    I can see it now, server's split over scrunching or folding, which is the correct technique?, guild's will make it a requirement for recruitment, demanding video proof, fortunes will be made and lost in toilet paper wars.

    So the excuse to not have launched is because in-game taking a shit needs to be there?

    Glad I got my money back years ago.

    They can't stop promising features. I don't even know who was asking for this system to begin with. 

    I wish they would just stop saying OH WE NEED THIS TOO THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE, to every little damn thing in existence. If they stopped doing that and just focused on what they are going to release, the game would be way more viable to come out sooner, rather than 15 years from now when they are adding virtual hair growth in real time.

    Why? You don't need to be that envoloped in a world to have fun roleplaying. Pooping just seems outrageous.

    I don't even, I'm friendly to RP but I never understood why people talked and still do talk about Toilets in ships so much.

    For example, the old Cutlass was revamped for the next 3.0 update and its toilet was removed, so that became a topic. lol

    In this aspect, I would say just have to eat time to time to not get debuffs, or even showering that makes sense in its RP nature, beds are embedded in gameplay (save game, recover, etc..), but toilets are meh.
