With the new item storage in container feature, I was wondering if we could adapt it to store food items as well.
Essentially, activate a food storage container and you’ll get the option to chose which comestible to store in it. Then - as long as you’re wearing said container - whenever you start to get hungry; you automatically reach in and pull out a snack. Wearable canteens would work the same way. You’ll only grab a bite/drink when there are no enemies nearby.
This would keep us from starving/dehydrating during those long crafting/welding projects as well as make dealing with junk food less of an inventory hassle.
On the other hand, this kind of drives home how easy food is to get at later stages of the game.
