    FYI, charcoal has been nerfed. It used to take 6 charcoal to burn 20 carrots or 10 planks. Now, same 6 charcoal only burn 16 carrots or 8 planks. My guess is 7 is the right number now. Still testing.

    Anyone can do the math to see if burning planks for charcoal is still a good thing?

    Kefir, if you're listening : that's a pretty bad nerf. Particularly right now, has we have to save planks for Fort Moss. Charcoal supplies are running low, and it now takes more to do the same.

    Yeah. I have the same impression that hunger and thirst have been accelerated.

    Oh, Kefir... what have you done!

    Did it not always take 7 charcoal vs 10 planks?

    I actually have been wondering this for a couple weeks. Since the sector 7 update. I seemed to need to eat and drink a lot more often

    Definitely not. I was always putting 20 planks and 12 charcoal in the fire, and was good for 40 charcoal that way. BTW, I think it's now even more than 7, but actually 8 charcoal for 10 planks (or 16 for 20). I am testing, but it looks really bad.

    Tested and confirmed : Prior to v1.15, Charcoal used to burn more slowly in the Campfire than the Furnace (6m40s vs 5m20s). Now, it burns for 5m20s in both.

    A Pine Plank still burns in 3 minutes when used as fuel.

    Considering the recipe to make charcoal was 10 planks + 6 charcoal = 20 charcoal, or 10 planks = 14 charcoal...
    Now, the math has changed and its 10 planks + 8 charcoal = 20 charcoal, or 10 planks = 12 charcoal.

    10 planks will burn in 30 minutes at campfire (20 minutes in furnace), but 10 planks turned into 12 charcoal will burn for 64 minutes in both campfire and furnace (used to be 14 for 93min at campfire and 75min in furnace).

    Conclusion : Charcoal is still the best fuel, compared to planks. But it has been nerfed really well. It now takes +33% ressource to turn planks into charcoal, and the burn time has been reduced by 15 to 30%, depending on where you use it.

    EDIT : I'm wondering if the nerf was intentionnal, or if it's a mistake that burn time is now the same between campfire and furnace. I've already mailed a complaint to Kefir earlier (prior to above math), and I don't want to push my luck. Maybe the community can reach out to Kefir? If it's a bug, it can be fixed.

    Alfa seems different to me. Floor 2 I’m zip gunning the locked up giant and another one comes walking down hallway out of nowhere. Green and yellow drops seem better. Red seems very cut back. More food water and heals found in boxes.

    I remember a while back Kefir experimented with different recipie mechanics between servers. I wonder if this is still the case?

    I took notes ... every 10 seconds food and water drop by 1% ... means that after 1.000 seconds you are down to zero which are a bit more than 16 minutes

    How do the slower hunger and thirst skills figure in on this?

    It’s kinda getting annoying. It seems like I’m constantly eating and drinking now. Just last week or so. I left the base and went hunting. I took nothing with me. Went full Daniel Boone. Lived off land. I had no problem. Not sure I could do that now

    edit. My time is off it was probably a couple weeks ago. I think they nerfed in sector 7 update. My conspiracy theory and I’m sticking to it

    When you say made one. What do you mean? I’ve seen people just craft one but not build it.
