    What’s a “timer” and why did I work for hours to find a boar and skin it only to lose the meat?!

    Well it was on a timer. DUH!
    ARK does it just fine.

    I think you are correct given multiple buffs (including infection) use buffIllnessIndicatorTrigger.

    I personally think it's backwards as well, the green numbers should reflect a positive change from what you are wearing versus what you are looking at. I think "green means go" and it's better, someone felt otherwise. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Ok, thanks. I tried to search but couldn't find anything about it.

    What was the response?

    Disagreed. I hate being low on food. I harvest a couple of bits. So since I have a bit extra I eat, but by some stupid reasoning I choose to eat the freshest stuff and have the older food expire. That does not seem "just fine" to me.

    Until yesterday, I'd have agreed with you. But yesterday I got hit with an infection that lasted about twenty four hours in game dropping into infection 3 and the "Low health" warning a couple times, depleting much of my stockpiled medicines as I watched the timers on everything and kept taking what I had available. When I play solo, I play dead is dead so it was pretty important to live through it, but it is the first time I've seen it do that.

    -1 on food spoilage for me.

    Same for heart rate, cholestoral, muscle mass, fat percentage. Way too much micromanaging.

    Cheers

    You think we shouldn't have to check our heart-rate? Does that mean you're in favor of dropping the stamina system altogether? Isn't that part of what the stamina system is measuring?

    Doesnt feel micromanagy for me like it is now. Any more i wouldnt like. I was aiming at countless meters and whistle and bells for micromanaging you body parameters. Same thoughts bout weapons. Love the fact that weappart are gone. Anything looking to much like a simulator just turns me off.

    But thats just me.

    Cheers

    I have to chirp in here and remark as well that since A17 landed when ever I have had a mentioned 'Infection' it has indeed just gone in a game hour or less. I have never actually had to go out and find A.B. nor use them.

    That's not an issue with the spoilage system, but rather auto choosing which foods to eat first.

    I am fairly certain everything only has a small percentage to cure to start.....
    And the Medic perk that they removed/disabled since it didn't work was supposed to raise the percentages.
    Like always No Follow through and the removal/disable was not countered immediately to offset this imbalance.

    Agreed, it is just an issue with how the system chooses to deal with spoilage, but enough of one that it makes it not "just right" for me. Now I don't think the timer should be fully reset each time someone were to eat an item off the stack, but certainly the time to spoil should be increased each time an item is eaten.

    Ah found it, my search-fu is strong today:

    It shows you if the item you are mousing over is better or worse.

    You need to play more into the gamestage. I think I got around.. 400 Game Stage and every 1/10 hits I'd get infected. My friend and I were fretting but then we found a Herbal Antibiotic Book..
