DayZ: Energy, Water and Stomach

The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus, turning the majority population into frenzied infected. Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?

Energy

Energy comes from food and energizers. There are five different status of your energy. Those are: energized – green background, energized – green background, no comment, hungry – yellow-green background, hungry – orange background, starving – red background.

No comment means that you should start looking for food.

If a yellow-green hungry status appears, it means that you seriously should start looking for food.

If an orange hungry status appears, you have to find food quickly.

Starving status means that you’re losing blood and soon you’ll lose consciousness. If you can’t find food, log out and ask someone to find you and give you food.

Energized status mean that your character has enough energy. But appearance of the green background isn’t the highest level of energy. This limit is very high, so don’t worry about it. So the only one limitation is a stomach capacity, about which later on.

Energy should be kept on a high level, because it speeds up blood regeneration after you lose it. It also let you keep your character healthy.

Water

Water can be gained not only from drinks. It comes also from most of the food. Of course, it’s not as much, as you’d have gained from drinking pure water. Water is easy to find, as you can drink well water, rain water and water from the lake. There are five different status of water in your body. Those are: hydrated- green background, hydrated- green background, no comment, thirsty- yellow-green background, thirsty- orange background, thirsty- red background.

If a yellow-green thirsty status appears, it means that you seriously should start looking for food.

If an orange thirsty status appears, you have to find water very quickly.

Thirsty status on the red background means that you’re losing blood and soon you’ll lose consciousness. If you can’t find water, log out and ask someone to find you and give you food.

No comment and hydrated on the green background means that your character has enough water, but you can look for it.

Hydrated status onto light-green background means that you have enough water and it’s no sense in drinking more, as it’ll waste. After crossing the upper limit, the water is wasted.

Water should be kept on a high level, because it speeds up blood regeneration after you lose it. It also let you keep your character healthy.

Stomach

All you eat goes to your stomach. It’s capacity is limited. There are four status about your stomach’s capacity. Those are: no comment, stuffed – light-green background, stuffed – orange background, stuffed – red background.

If you don’t see any of those comments, it means that there is a plenty space in your stomach and you can eat.

If stuffed status has light-green background, you should (but you don’t have to) stop eating/drinking.

If stuffed status has orange background, you have to stop eating/drinking.

If you don’t stop, stuffed gets a red background. Then it quickly goes to sick and your character starts vomiting, losing both energy and water, what makes your stomach more empty. But you have to avoid this status.

Doesn’t matter if your stomach is full or empty. Blood regeneration doesn’t depend on that.
