So I was strolling through my daily dose of science news and came across some articles on astronauts eating space grown veggies for the first time. It looks like something that could be used in the game or maybe just inspire other ideas. Really the one looks like Nasa stole images from the devs private experimental file. That is a Gen room and an adapted I tube. Anyways, what are your thoughts on this or other ideas from growing veggies under water? I dont think this has gotten enough attention yet. Lets hear it.
Imagine building one of these, throwing in two Gary Fish and playing soft jazz. In a few days come back and there are 20 Gary Fish swimming around waiting for you to harvest.
Under water planting of Acid mushrooms would also be nice, Sea fans too if they are made edible again.
From a balance standpoint, they could grow genetically engineered algae. The algae can then be turned to be used for other things, putting more steps into the process that can result in different results or just be eaten by itself.
It would definitely be good to have something more to put in bases.
I'd rather not have a pooping mechanic, thanks.
I am speaking about that in terms of how it is supposed to make sense in terms of equipment for terraforming effort. In that case they'd have a serious problem with where all the poop would go.
The player could have a sub-machine that turns decomposing food into fertilizer for the plants
Certain growable plants could have other functions, like alternative resources for medkits or super-water. I read an article about some sort of gel that is basically water, and is in a gel-like form in the stomach that always releases precisely as much water into it as the body needs. I can't remember any name mentioned.
