Unconsciousness
I don't know if this has been asked before or even answered but I tried to find anything on the subject but didn't.

1) For how long will you be unconscious when someone/something knocks you out?

2) Will the time vary on the reason that you got unconscious?
(from eating bad stuff, damage, tranq)

good questions, I havent seen anything on that either.

2) i think it'll vary. from being poisoned to knocked over to being punched out by another player or injured(assuming some injuries can lead to unconsciousness), there is a very good idea that you might wake up quicker in some situations and not others, especially if someone is nursing you back to health. (:

From what I have seen in discussion it was implied that you can keep drugging someone to keep them unconscious for long time periods.

Kinda see it as a bad thing when someone can keep a newb drugged in their base for ever.

There are many ways the prisoner can get out.

1. The captor runs out of drugs, prisoner eats poop and punches a wall.

2. The captor goes to sleep while the prisoner is awake, prisoner eats poop and punches a wall.

3. The captor gets killed, prisoner eats poop and punches a wall.

4. The captor messes up, prisoner eats poop and punches a wall.

5. prisoner eats poop and punches a wall.

6. The Spider Horde comes in and kills everyone.

Unconsciousness is based on the level of Torpor your character currently has, it was explained in one of the ARK Digest - but think of it like a progress bar. When that specific progress bar is over a certain level, you'll get knocked out. The rate at which Torpor decreases is increased heavily once you're actually out, but it's slower for Dinos - mind you, it takes a lot more to knock them out :)

The time is based on how high your torpor is, you can decrease it by eating / drinking certain in game items. Though some items are also likely to make you have a higher amount of Torpor, for instance a Tranquilizer arrow is going to apply a lot more Torpor than your fists.

But if you get unconscious what kind of time span are we talking about if nothing is done to increase or decrease the torpor? (In minutes) :-)

Handcuffs prevent use of consumables that were not in the player's hotbar prior to being, abducted. Also cant access inventory while shackled so, no eating poop to kill yourself.
