    Will there be 2 or 3-slot augment packs as well in vanilla?

    Or what if I want my modded impervium-weaved cycling shorts to get augmented with jump boost?

    The only issue I had with survival mode the other day was how ridiculously quickly the hunger meter drops.

    My suggestions for future updates: Work on the lag, add more variation to planets and animals (More biomes!) , and make progression more interesting. Anyways, great work guys :D

    About food rotting away in backpack, this mean fridges would have some purpose now? i mean, food in fridge would have better protection agaisnt the climate changes like heat and some other agents that can affect the quality of the food unlike having your food in a back pack. if that the case... this mean food in fridges (or any other storage designed for food) will keep in good shape the food for more time unlike having your food in backpack?.

    About hunger, I've been pondering about a way to make it less of a hassle for players if it hadn't been made optional now.

    Simply have the character eat automaticly when the hunger bar goes low. There could be a tiny food inventory that's like four slots, and the food will automatically picked in a set order, from left to right or so

    Hunger is paired with regular mode right now (Where you lose items on death).

    I want nothing to do with hunger at all, so Im doing just fine in casual.

    Seconded so hard. I'll only bother playing Survival should my mod dev work require it.

    I think having a survival mode is a really cool idea. I'll probably have a character in survival mode and casual mode and play whichever one I am in the mood. Also interested in what player pets will be able to do. Will we be able to eat them if we are starving in survival mode? It would be like, "Sorry Mr. Fluffy :kitten2:, it's been fun but I'm going to eat you now."

    Im keen on for temperature, but hunger is just a damn egg timer to me. Not interested.

    Please don't make hunger just another health bar to keep topped off, that is not an enjoyable way to deal with hunger. If it's just a hunger bar, it proves as nothing more than a distraction, rather than an inherent part of progressing forward.

    Food should serve a purpose other than refilling another health bar. Rather than just reducing health, make it so that the without food the weaker we get. Less max health, slower movement speeds, less attacking damage. Make food about keeping my character in good shape, only under extreme conditions should hunger kill my character.

    What we eat and drink should make a difference too, what we consume before we adventure off should be something we use to help make that adventure easier. Hunger should add to decision making and tactical thinking for the player. Dying should be the result of not eating food that helps me take on challenging opponents. Don't add 50 different types of food, if they all serve the same exact purpose.

    About Augmenting the protection packs... Will the Augments be used in the crafting of the protection pack to give it certain traits or will the augments be swap-able?
