So I have been thinking long and hard about this type of content update, I am also not sure if anyone else has brought this up.. (Note: This would have no effect on the current health regen system)

The Survival Aspect of the game is none, I was thinking about utilizing the current in-game features to give the game a solid survival rating. I'm not talking about TTD or TTK. I am talking about Eating, Sleeping, Drinking etc.

-
Eating
= Utilize the cooking, herb, and fishing skills to maintain hunger ratings.
-
Drinking
= Could introduce a new skill called "Brewing" which would allow you to make a variety of different beverages that would utilize already in-game ingredients.
-
Sleep
= Utilize the PoHs as a serious form of living AND utilize faculty buildings in the game world such as bars, taverns and Inn's who would / could offer bedding.


Personally I would think this would make RuneScape a lot more sophisticated than just your average MMO. If you have to eat, drink and sleep, it would make the game a lot more lively. Another aspect to look at here, with the certain potion making they have in game already, you could add more potions to allow the deterrent of fatigue, hunger and thirst. Such potions would be high level crafting and be very valuable.

This would also make food more of a valuable resource and needed based on its satisfaction rating, meats like beef and chicken would be moderately filling to allow prolonged survival. Obviously drinking water or other types of beverages would be a good thirst factor.

EDIT: As I have been enlightened of the bad description, it would expand the already skill for herblore for potion making and completely restructure brewing and make it an actual serious skill. ALSO as for fatigue, it would enable the new system of "camping".

I am open to discussion about this suggestion on things I could add or improve. :)

Continued: Also there would be an addition to the game which would be called camping, which would enable the player to set up a small campsite to gain some quick rest. If the fatigue meter is empty (or full, depending on the metric) you would not be able to gain full exp anymore until you rest.

Also, if not fully implemented, it could be a toggle setting in your menu for self play.

We used to have fatigue in the game way back, and it was removed, probably partly because it was annoying as hell. Needing to go sleep constantly because you couldn't gain any xp anymore.
And with hunger and thirst, people would constantly die when bankstanding.
Thirst already exists in the desert because it's bery hot there.

Brewing is already part of Cooking (normal beverages like beer or wine).

After receiving a lot of insults, trolls and hate on facebook from this idea. I have come to the conclusion that it it would be better suited for a Game-mode, setting or dedicated world shard for this type of update. Which would allow users to play it without being forced to.

^ Would indeed be better if it wasn't forced upon the players. I doubt it will be popular though. The RS Wiki needs a hand, and Bwian's will gladly take the rest of your body!

It was never my intention on it being forced to be honest. I just would have liked to see it implemented similar to the style of Iron Man. Like an individual game mode or something or a world you can join. Simple, yet not invasive to the rest of the community.

I said it on Facebook and I’ll say it here... no this is the worst idea ever! Wouldn’t work with the game engine. Would divide the community even more and sleeping was horrible in RSC and this would be even worse! Might as well go plays sims

Oh cry me a river and you still seem to think that I am forcing it onto everyone. If you don't like it, don't play it :) Stop being such a buzz kill and following me to the forums to harass me, yes you censored 90% of your opinion, but you did that because you didn't wanna get in trouble with the Mods.

If you don't like it, cool fair enough. Stop sh*tting on my idea because YOU and a handful of other people and bandwagon users don't want to play it. Know what? Maybe some other people do, it's NOT being forced onto other users. You still don't understand that? If you don't want to contribute to the thought of the idea and making sure it works with the current meta of the game, please refrain from commenting and insulting me on here or on facebook. Thank you.
