Genius! I will start the next game with the option for perishable food. It will be even more RP feeling :-) Thank you for this great work.

It's like a fuel gauge, where 0 is empty, positive is full, negative is running low enough to get a penalty (if you're displaying it as a percent, 0% is empty, 100% is full, less than 0% is bad.) If you get everything up to 100%, you should be good to go for about 4 to 8 hours, depending on how active you are.

hey do u want to keep all of ur nees up hihg of do the numbers need to be low idk which one is better

@Lost_in_Strategy - It's mentioned in the FAQ on the Discussions tab, but the water detection works by looking for water-related references, like ripples. You need to be standing near whitewater for the water to be detected. (It was a lot simpler in Fallout 3, when all water worked as an activator.)

Open source body of water refill/drink option doesn't seem to be working. Most likely, something I'm wrong on my end? The mod works fine with everything else.

Can somebody please inform me what is going on here? I'm in Broken Oar Grotto (nothing but water in this cave) All I get is my nutritional values from the +More Complex Action+ ability. cannot bottle/drink any of it. (I have 3 empty wine bottles) I'm damn near going insane trying to figure this out. I've followed the authors advice on his nexus:

"Water can be bottled or drunk at many interior water sources, as well as near running water and most wells. To use water, select the +IMCN Actions+ lesser power from your spells list, and activate the power near a body of water or well. If you're trying to drink or bottle from an exterior river, look for the ripple effect near waterfalls and stand near that."

Would appreciate some help please. Thank you.

Truly amazing. Fun to play the game with a more survival like feeling to it.

When I uninstalled by following all the instructions and safely disabling it, the next day when I loaded my save, it turns out it got corrupted as well as all my other saves. I had to start all over :c

There are compatibility patches available for a few mods, available on Skyrim Nexus. Uploading patches here is a little awkward (they need to be separate files.) The process for making foods compatible is written out on the discussions tab.

hi there

im starting to use this great mod to make skyrim more interesting but i have some doubts, beginning with if is there any mod incompatibility problems already known, because is not recognizing all the food as IMCN food, some food recipes are not usable to satiate the character needs

i use the mod rebuild list, but still some of them are missing...

any ideas?
Scribbledot Jan 27 @ 8:57pm 
well, i only have hearthfire and dragonborn. i have lots of mods for the game, so im gonna try to take some off to see if its just too much for skyrim to load soooo...
Imp  [author] Jan 26 @ 5:21pm 
@gamezombie - There's a lesser power that can be used near some bodies of water. It's mentioned in the FAQ on the discussion page.

@lilianna002 - Crashes in this engine can seem pretty arbitrary and are tough to diagnose. The mod is stable on my machine, and for most users. Mod conflicts or different hardware or game setups could be the cause. The Dawnguard DLC was also notorious for crashing repeatedly once started, so getting that out of the way or avoiding it entirely can help.
Scribbledot Jan 25 @ 7:08pm 
u keep getting kicked out of the game, any way i can fix this?
gamezombie Jan 25 @ 5:01pm 
can you refill an empty bottle after you drink the water cause every time i drink the water there is an empty bottle. If you can refill it how?
[GDG] Lt. Derp Jan 20 @ 8:46pm 
Okay. Thank you for clearing that up.
Bubbles Jan 19 @ 8:14pm 
Ah, I see. I appreciate the help, i understand now
Imp  [author] Jan 19 @ 7:34pm 
In the foods section of your inventory, there should be a "More Complex Needs" item. Click it and a menu will pop up letting you configure the timescale adjuster. You can set it to static (one timescale is used) or dynamic (different timescales can be applied to different states, like being inside, outside, in a town, or in combat). By default, the static mode drops the timescale from the game's usual 30 down to 10. Dynamic sets it to 10 when you're out on the main map, and 5 everywhere else. The idea is that it makes the map seem larger by making it take more time, food, and water to get from one town to another. Both modes make it so you that won't have to eat as often.
Bubbles Jan 19 @ 5:23pm 
How do I use the timescale adjuster?
Imp  [author] Jan 11 @ 8:29pm 
You won't need to start a new game, but it's usually a good idea to create a save before installing mods in case something goes wrong. This does need to be disabled via an in-game menu before being uninstalled.
[GDG] Lt. Derp Jan 11 @ 2:21pm 
Question: Do you have to start a new game all over before installing the mod or can I just install and continue as usual?
Raphi20000 Nov 17, 2015 @ 2:28pm 
I have installed the main mod and all dlc mods, but my game crash when i make baked potatoes and finish the last
LLamas_OF_ SKYRIM Nov 15, 2015 @ 1:51pm 
what happens if you dont have the food item and you want to uninstall?
NeYo__ Nov 15, 2015 @ 5:25am 
Question: what if i uninstall this mod before changing the +IMCN Vitality+ ... ? Do I need to subscibe this mod and do this thing again or just change it without subscribe this mod again ? Something it take too long for me to play the game because the game won't play in loading screen .
p/s sorry for bad grammar or anything . English is not my primary language :D
Araanim Oct 16, 2015 @ 5:41am 
Ah okay! Thanks. I don't think I ever used Namira's ring so I had never seen the consume option before so I was really confused. Ralof wasn't happy when I started eating his fallen comrade :-)
Imp  [author] Oct 15, 2015 @ 6:21pm 
It does. It can be toggled on or off via the MCM system made available by installing SkyUI, but it looks like that toggle is left out of the standard menus in this version.
Araanim Oct 12, 2015 @ 7:31am 
Question: If you play a Bosmer character, does this mod give you the ability to be a cannibal from the get-go? I just noticed that in my game, but I can't figure out what mod added that.
Imp  [author] Oct 9, 2015 @ 6:45pm 
@Zebro Dude - There are a couple of menu systems for that. If you have MCM installed, it will look like the one in the screen shots. If not, it can be accessed via an item in the food section of your inventory.

@dtownsend6011 - They add support for foods added by those DLC, so it's recommended.
dtownsend6011 Oct 8, 2015 @ 5:36pm 
I have Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn DLCs do I need all 3 Patches for them
ZebroDude Oct 3, 2015 @ 10:35am 
can u make it so it is longer for u to get hungry/thirsty and maybe only like 4 hrs of sleep or maybe a customizer? i have to disable cause its ruining the game for me. its like this: You're in a dungeon, finding a daedric artifact! But then, "You are tired." No beds around, you are dying from all of your bad skills.
Imp  [author] Sep 23, 2015 @ 3:12am 
@heyjudek - That was the plan. I have a bunch of code written towards that end, but am focusing on something for Fallout: New Vegas right now.
Spirit of the Anarchy Sep 13, 2015 @ 12:04pm 
Could anybody please tell me if this mod is also going to penalize NPCs for being hungry, thirsty, etc. ?
galletto galerunner Aug 29, 2015 @ 3:18pm 
nvm i dident notice the hearthfire patch
galletto galerunner Aug 29, 2015 @ 3:17pm 
useing the cooking spit crashes thegame for me idk if its another mod but i shouldent have any that should mess with this one
fentozi Aug 19, 2015 @ 8:10am 
Yes, there are negative effects. I died from an overdose of alcohol
Imp  [author] Aug 18, 2015 @ 2:09pm 
Wortsalat!
FrankyP Aug 17, 2015 @ 7:21am 
Is there even negitive effects to not eating, drinking or sleeping? i waited like 4 days and i have no negitive effect.... If there is explain it please cause this discrition of this mode dosent say anything about what happens if u dont eat
fentozi Aug 16, 2015 @ 9:35am 
But I wonder whether it is possible to neutralize the alcohol. That would not die from it. very little water and drink what you want))) Done agree about the cold, really miss gipotremii.
RabidLazorBunni Aug 15, 2015 @ 6:37pm 
you should add a heat, or cold, or something need because frostfall isn't on steam any more
MrBoltstrike Aug 15, 2015 @ 4:00pm 
love this mod, easily makes the game more fun and I can work with being punished severely for fast travel across short-medium distances.

However, it seems that cooked salmon is not involved in the library of foods. Homemade salmon steak has a different image which leads me to believe it's under some other object id or something. Hopefully it isn't a mod conflict issue, I don't have anything that adds items besides dlc (which also shouldn't matter since I have the compatibility mods) but I'm still checking to be sure.

Fortunately, the lack of homemade salmon wasn't huge for the playthrough at large (stolen and bought salmon steak still work fine) but it's something that might need to look into.
fentozi Aug 15, 2015 @ 3:19pm 
It is a pity that there is in Russian
fentozi Aug 15, 2015 @ 1:35pm 
Many thanks for mod. Here is an idea that has long worried about our heroes go dirty and blood enemies. But if they felt the need to wash!
Aug 4, 2015 @ 5:25am 
Too complex... a warrior doesn't care about calories and protein. They just need to eat, drink and sleep to survive...
Big Al the Exquisite Meme Man Jul 27, 2015 @ 9:10pm 
Godspeed you glorious human
Imp  [author] Jul 22, 2015 @ 2:53pm 
I'm sidetracked on a quest mod for New Vegas and writing a book. Those two are a higher priority for right now.
2Handsome4You Jul 18, 2015 @ 5:02am 
hey imp. thanks for the help. anyways, do u die from blood thirst? and when are u gonna finish the 'npcs need to eat 'function? thx
LNKS Jul 17, 2015 @ 7:43am 
Hey I really like this mod but everytime I talk to an innkeeper my game crashes. Does anyone know if there are conflicting mods or is it a bug in the mod?
LordFarquaad96 Jul 16, 2015 @ 10:53am 
are you still working on this mod ?
LLamas_OF_ SKYRIM Jul 8, 2015 @ 3:56pm 
why would he put the important at the bottom?
