I have two tin cans, an aluminum can, a bucket, a river, two fire drills, thirteen two by fours, and a dehydrated survivor because there aren’t any bottles lying around. When I try to go to the river to make clean water, I can’t because I don’t have anything to store clean water in. You can already store water that is the result of a recipe (like clean water) in a can, so why not just regular water? This poor sap is going to die because I can’t take water from a river into a can.
I guess I could always just take the water straight, but I’d prefer to avoid food poisoning.
That does make sense, but I don’t think it’s a good enough reason to die of dehydration. If you wield a can, you can still carry it around unsealed, and if they were sealed prior to being placed in your inventory, then you can still carry them until you drop them.
I know that if I were in that circumstance, I’d find a way to make it work. I had to waste a first aid kit on bite wound because a fat zed on a bush moves faster than my character, while sprinting, right now.
If you make clean water, then you can put it in a can, regardless of whether the can is in your inventory, or just on the ground adjacent, but you need a bottle first.
Edit: Never mind. I just found out that if you wield the can first, you can place water into it.
In experimental version, you can carry pots, buckets etc. and have water in them.
You can even fill those containers while they’re on the ground or in your hands, you just can’t place them in inventory or vehicle containers without spilling them.
[quote=“ZoneWizard, post:12, topic:13947”]Can resealer doesn’t make sense in this regard? Just keep in mind this water should not be considered clean unless used in a recipe system to “Food: Clean and seal water”
REquires can reseal machine and…etc.[/quote]Wouldn’t it just be easier to make/use a plastic lid that’s clipped on to place?
Actually, cool idea for cataclysm: Tupperware.
