Too Hot/Too Cold Food/Drink


Recommended Posts

Let's say you've poured a piping hot cup of coffee in SS13. You feel it in your hands. "It feels very hot."

You decide to rapidly click yourself and just drink it down to nothing in seconds while it's still steaming. The first sip, nothing happens. But after two or so rapid clicks, you get minor burns in your mouth and a log in the chat. If you persist, the burns repeat and your damage multiplies.

"Urist McBarista burns their mouth with [Insert Beverage]!"

How would you know when to sip and when it's hot? If you pick up something that's really hot, you automatically get a log. "[Insert Item] feels hot to the touch." Your first drink from a hot drink will produce a log. "Urist McBarista sips their [Insert Beverage]." After a while passes, they will get a personal, private log. "You are ready to sip again."

Apply this to food with a few word changes. If you rapidly devour piping hot food/soup, you should get burns in your mouth. If you pace yourself, you can enjoy your hot meal with no repercussions, taking your time to savor and enjoy it.

As for cold things, you could get something similar to brain freeze. It causes no damage, but makes you cold and a little slower for like two seconds if you just down something frozen.

Have you ever got a bar cocktail? They're all "lethally hot" or similar because of temp code.

It could still just give you a minor burn. But only if it's PHYSICALLY, LITERALLY hot. Not just flavor.

Dude, they come out "lethally hot" even if they have ice in it. It's a tempetature code bug. Before that is fixed, this is completely unfeasible.

Certain cold things already do this, such as ice. As for hot things, I don't want to be reminded of the era where eating a plate of enchiladas would husk you with literal hundreds of burn damage within minutes due to how heat works mechanically.
