Here is some progress on my GF/LF mod!
Mainly as most game mechanics can be avoided with skill or tech progression (power armour for weak players, food processing/collecting/mutating for carnivores etc). But the “grain intolerance” and “lactose intolerant” character debuffs have a simple counter, don’t eat those things. But as the game does a lot of real life simulation/crafting etc, then it’s just as simple for the game character to use alternatives.
This should not affect balance much. Those items were food stuffs before. A player could make/use other foodstuffs before. Just a late game player has more options available now.
I am yet to look at milk/wheat spawns. I’ll have to see if I could make these alternatives spawn very infrequently.
I am not bothering with Soya milk, as I do not know of any consumer based growing/producing. But rice milk and cornflour type recipes seem easy enough for the Survivor to make.
Todo: Consolidate cornflour/riceflour into a single “gluten free flour mix” to avoid having to make a seperate flour for everything.
