Food

From ECO Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Food is a constant necessity for players in ECO. Lack of food will eventually halt the accumulation of Skill points and prevent the player from doing any work that requires calories. Players will not die from starvation, however.

Skill point gain is directly tied to the player's nutrition, and is boosted by having an equal balance of the four nutrients: Carbohydrates, Protein, Fat and Vitamins.

A player's daily skill point gain is calculated based on the average nutrients of all foods in a player's stomach. The average (weighted based on food calories) of each nutrient is added, then multiplied by a balance modifier (between x1 and x2). Foods that are completely lacking in one or more nutrients are considered to have a value of 0 in the missing nutrient(s).

Foods stay in the stomach for 24 hours after eating. After that time, they will no longer be part of the skill point gain calculation.

Food is eaten by right-clicking on it. It does not need to be assigned to the toolbar. Food can be eaten from the toolbar, the inventory, or directly from a container. Right-clicking a stack of food will only consume one portion.

Properties of food[edit | edit source]

Each piece of food has multiple values associated with it:

Calories[edit | edit source]

When a food is consumed, its caloric value is added to the player's calorie value, shown in the bottom left of the screen. Calories are needed to do manual labor is ECO, and are required to use most tools.

A player's calories will decline at an hourly rate. Once calories reach 0, the player's daily skill point gain drops to 0 per day, and they can not do any work that requires calories.

If the calorie count of a food would raise that player's calories above the player's max, base 3,000 but can be increased by the skill Big Stomach, the player can not eat that food and will be given a "My stomach is full" message. Doing work to lower calories will eventually allow the player to eat the food.

Nutrients[edit | edit source]

The four nutrients do not have any different effects on the body. They just need to be kept balanced to maximize skill gain.

Carbs[edit | edit source]

Carbs, short for carbohydrates, are mainly found in starchy products, like Bread. In early-game, Wheat is high in Carbs.

Protein[edit | edit source]

Protein is mainly found in meat, but there are small amountmall amounts of protein in beans and some other food. Charred Meat and other animal products are good sources of protein.

Fat[edit | edit source]

Fat is most easily obtainable from meat. Tallow, a byproduct of cooking meat, is pure fat.

Vitamins[edit | edit source]

Vitamins are found in foods that have a vegetable or fruit component. Huckleberries are the best way to supplement vitamin intake early on.

Food Resources[edit | edit source]

Food resources are foods that can be gathered straight from plants in the world. Most can be gathered simply by highlighting the plant and pressing E.
Wheat requires a scythe. Camas requires a shovel to harvest.
