[Complete] Make Unathi not gain nutrition from nutriment


Recommended Posts

Something i very often see unathi players RPing anyway, and i think quite a few of them believe it is so, although our code doesn't support it.


Unathi are carnivorous, they naturally prefer a diet of meat, and shouldn't be able to digest nutriment.

It shouldn't poison them either, just have no effect, pass through undigested like fibre in humans.


Could be done very easily by adding a conditional check to animal protein to give nutrition if the consumer is unathi, and then return (to prevent calling the parent function). And another check in nutriment to just return.


Simple, interesting dietary requirement created. As mentioned, everyone already acts like it exists anyway, unathi don't eat non-meats very much. Making them give no nutrition wouldn't hamper their ability to eat mixed foods, they'd just only be satieted by the meaty parts of it, and thus need to eat more meat, which is fun for everyone

The secrets on how to bypass the chubby limit and eat forever is a secret only a few know, and all of us will take it to our grave.


But for the rest of us, being able to consume the kitchen's entire vegan and vegetarian stockpiles simply to deny it from the Skrell out of spite is a very Unathi thing to do and I want code support for it.

As mentioned, i'd just want it to not-give nutrition, not poison you, or deny you from eating it. An unathi could happily stuff their face with cabbage all day if they wanted, and never get full


Only vegan foods though. Anything containing egg yolk (eg, breads) contain animal protein and are thus at least partially digestible to carnivores

So i just went and read the wiki page. People aren't just RPing this spontaneously

From the Biology section

 

Since they are carnivorous species, their diet mostly consists of meat, though they do have a tolerance to some plants and fruits. However, they do not get any nutrition from plants, so they are mostly used as garnish or decoration.

 

So yea, unathi can't digest plants is our actual official lore
