Just playing around a little bit and hit a stash of MREs right at the start of the game. My character was hungry/thirsty, so I ripped one open and heated up some food, mixed up some lemonade, and wolfed it down. Yum!
Now, coffee time! – wait, I can’t just dump it in a mug with hot water? The “Powdered Coffee” that comes in MREs, etc. is freeze-dried instant coffee, not grounds. I know a ton of material in this game is a “yes, we’ll get to it eventually” - but I’m hoping this one is on the roadmap.
there -are- a lot of recipies that use coffee as an ingredient, and to add a new ‘type’ of coffee they’d have to change things around a lot, it’d take a bit… and they’re likely focusing on more important things.
No it really wouldn’t be a lot of work. Probably take about as long clicking through folders as adding another recipe, especially when it’s primarily a copy paste job with just a few requirements and ingredient options removed. Would be far from the only recipe that has a limited duplicate with a requirement removed and ingredient changed. Submitting it is probably more work than the tweaks themselves. Unless the powdered coffee isn’t a separate item then it’s more work but shouldn’t be too much even then. Haven’t taken a good look at MREs for awhile myself.
Eh depends on how the nested containers are coded. Haven’t tweaked any of those yet. Probably mostly a lot of grunt work given how many types of mre there are if a new type of item needs to be added. I might take a look but got a bunch of other stuff I’d rather work on so no promises.
