    The crux if the issue lays with how it's almost impossible to find the balance between "this is tedious" and "I have to double click on an inventory icon once a day.  What's the point?"
    I think this is solved well with buffs and debuffs, pre-defined per thing, so you can have one hunger/shower/el'poop mechanic without feeling like one annoying chore you have to go through constantly, neither something so superficial it's just limiting gameplay factor.

    Say to not make it imposing you just have a default neutral status that is then complemented with boons if you do indeed go through that task. Say if you go to a place and have a meal you have more stamina for your player character.

    I think that makes up for a mechanic that is neutral by default but benefits the player if they go through it. That way when you stop for refueling, repairing, maintenance, etc... you can also take some steps to take care of your character itself.

    I don't see the point of this. This is not the type of survival game where a metal bucket belongs to your most prized possessions and you would use your waste as manure for farming.

    Even having to eat/drink is kind of pointless in this kind of sci fi setup. It'll just become a chore.

    Performance enhancing drugs (with possible negative side effects), implants etc make far more sense in this game.

    I wonder if they have mocapped people sitting on the dunny and squeezing one out? Will there be different types of poops? different sound effects? how far are they willing to take this nonsense?

    It's going to be pretty annoying if you spend 10 minutes running to Miles Egghead only for him to tell you that you're farting too much and he has nothing to say until you've been for a poop...

    Miles - Hey John! How's it going?
    John - Hey Miles, good good! Just had a shower and a fantastic poop, all for you!
    Miles - *starts twitching with subsumption overload* fuck you Chris Roberts...

    I think it works best providing buffs, agreed.  I don't think I like the debuff idea, as it will sit quite differently with gamers to feel they're being "punished" for not doing the mundane.

    I also like @someforumguy's idea about having performance enhancing drugs or implants with possible negative side effects.  The complexity possible with this kind of system makes for interesting theory crafting and an added layer of depth to combat.

    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...

    https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/confirmed-in-atv-pooping-mechanic-is-on-the-way

    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.
    "(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.")

    I Heard the Toilets will be Instanced zones , But taking the dump is Open world Bowel movements

    I wonder if they will add stuff like pepto bismol to the cash shop.

    10 million more dollars Please , so we can implement all the Toilet graphics, fart noises , we might even include a smell o vision into our New "Chris Roberts incorporated" VR helmets if we reach our stretch goal of 15 Million

    You heard a mention of something that isn't even confirmed, much less any details exist on it yet and you got quite salty about it...

    Take a cup of tea and chill, or if you do care that much about something currently theoretical then give feedback about it in the places it will be heard. O.o

    I do think it is reasonable to have something where... Let's talk hunger.

    By default it is neutral, if you eat you get extra stamina/endurance for say 6 hours, after that you're back to normal, if you do not eat for say over 10 hours of gameplay then a slow growth debuff would start kicking in with one effect like, reducing your stamina/endurance by a bit until you eat again.

    Star Citizen world has drugs, and it's possible if we can consume then it would act like classic MMO potions/scrolls, but that would make it more complex than if you just had hunger.

    This is not like oxygen & breathing and it doesn't stand any reason to be so, where if you run out of oxygen you simply die.

    Will the toilets drain clockwise or Counter clockwise ??


    guess it will all depend on how far away from the sun the planet you are stationed on will be

    You're reading my posts wrong matey. I'm being outlandish because the whole idea of it makes me laugh, not because it bothers me.

    You should have laughed in 2012, this poopy business is older than my pledge xD

    Though I think initially this wasn't to go beyond toilets that exist and can be used. And it still is, or isn't, who knows O_o

    So if I'm on a ship with no toilet do I wear space diapers?

    Just chiming in to say, I was following this game and considering playing it in the future upon release, but seeing this type of mechanic added turns me off to the game big time. This has got to be one of the stupidest features I have ever seen added to a game.

    Can the fans take your advice and do the same? CR makes mention of something years ago and you all go apeshit on theorycrafting how this mechanic is going to change the game and orgs are springing up about it and how it will be the most fun feature ever!

    I'd totally go into all the bathrooms and watch people. If anyone says I'm in the wrong bathroom, I'd just say don't discriminate.

    Wouldn't be arrested for it either! Though probably wouldn't be arrested in real life either, I could just say I'm a woman in a mans body.

    Game won't be done until 2032, but at least you will be able to poop!

    CIG will jump on the bandwagon and make toilets gender neutral, will add another six months to a year dev time though.
