We have to eat and to drink all the time. Thats nice.
But what about excrement? I mean, it's part of our lives.
A few might think that's disgusting.
But it could be realized by a simple animation of crouching, without taking the pants down, without showing genitals and so on.
The main idea is, that every human needs some time for urination and bowel movement every day. While doing this he couldn't really do something else. In my opinion this should have a counterpart in DayZ.
It wouldn't be a real game changer, but players would have to plan their actions and movement a bit better. A sniper for example can't wait for hours in a tree without any movement.
Interesting about that is, that the mechanic of bowel movement and urination could be coupled with other already existing variables and mechanics. Some thoughts about that:
- If you drink too much, you have to urinate more and sooner.
- If you ignore the status messages and finally everything goes into your pants, the pants gets ruined.
- If you run long distances or if you are in permanent action and stress you have to urinate less, because the body looses liquid by sweating.
3.1. Also in periods of action and stress you have to shit less, because body and mind are focussed on saving your live. But as soon as it gets calm for about 5 minutes, bowel movement comes even harder (maybe combinable with #0006934).
