Feedback Sleep = Suspended Hunger Loss!?

    I hadn't actually tested it yet because I'd been busy questing and just logging out when I had to go afk but...sleeping evidently DOES halt hunger decay. I don't know if this is a recent development because I remember reading people complaining about it NOT slowing down the decay last night so I took some screenshots. It's totally a thing or my Glitch is glitched ;)

    If I'm just reporting the obvious, forgive me.

    I guess if you treat Glitch sleep as shutting down then it makes perfect sense :D

    Yeah I figured this out a few days ago. Good for going AFK and not starving at least. I still think we need a pause function though.

    That sleeping would slow down hunger makes some sense (your less active and using less energy).

    Im not sure about completely stopping it from a immersive perspective, but from a gameplay perspective it makes sense and i would judge that to be more important in this case.

    That's nice in a way, as it lets you beam up and go to bed if you need to step away from your computer (e.g. doorbell goes off) for a bit, without worrying about dying from hunger if you're away for a bit longer.

    Granted, it's been a while since hunger was a feature in the game but I'm pretty sure if I remember correctly it always worked this way (sleep halting it) because I used to go afk on my ship in a bed without having to worry about feeding myself. I basically ran the test because people were saying it was still ticking down and I didn't think that sounded right. I went afk for an hour after taking these pictures and the hunger meter still hadn't moved while I was in the bed.

    As far as a 'pause' feature goes I just log out to the load screen. When you join game again it puts you right back where you were anyway & the game takes little to no time to load. Finding out I COULD return to the safety of my ship or base and rest without losing hunger while I go afk was/is just an added bonus.
