7 Days to Die

7 Days to Die

Simple items, serious question.
Two items.
First, if the resource is available, why wouldn't I convert all of my water to red tea or goldenrod tea?
Then, if I have them, why wouldn't I carry around first aid kits instead of first aid bandages? I ask this as I see playthroughs and they will have a truckload of kits but always have bandages in their tool belt
Thanks in advance.

its a lot harder to make kits than bandages. And every 5 kits used = 1 less fortbyte which is like the best pill in the game. Since both use bloodbags.

Also consider what their gear and skill/perk loadout might be. in my SP runs I almost never have kits on me unless I'm tackling a BM or a T5 POI. Between skills, gear and my own gaming skill I almost never take enough damage to warrant using a first aid kit except under extreme circumstances. Bandages, pain meds and food are often more than enough.

For water? Absolutely convert them to red tea or goldenrod. Both offer more hydration than water alone and goldenrod carries the added bonus of dysentery remedy. Keep a stack or two of boiled water on hand for cooking, sure. But for normal consumption? Tea it up!

There's no particular reason not to convert all water to tea; However, If you carry water with you, it will potentially stack with water you find when looting- Red and goldenrod tea however will almost never end up stacking with what you find since both are extremely rare in loot by comparison. Certain recipes also use plain water (or even murky water); So if you convert ALL water into tea, you wont be able to make those recipes.

For Bandages vs Kits, it's a matter of resource investment vs return. Kits are excellent in a panic situation like horde night when you need a lot of healing very fast, but, they're expensive, and they do a LOT of healing. The kit also cures certain ailments. So, When you're just going around looting, using a first aid kit for every scratch you get is going to waste like 90% of the potential of the kit to overhealing and not having the injuries it treats. Further, Most people use bandages to quickly treat the Bleeding debuff rather than for the healing benefit itself, so again, would be a huge waste of a first aid kit. Blood bags being a rare resource, you would quickly chow through your first aid kit stash if you used them like a bandage. It's generally best to use the lesser option rather than the overkill option.

Red tea offers the efficient digestion perk which curbs hunger. Great for early game before you stock up on food. I don't bother with Goldenrod tea anymore.
Does anything even have a dystery chance anymore besides old sham sandwitch?

Theres no reason to drink unboiled water since campfires no longer need a cooking pot to boil water. And if you really want to drink dirty water, there is the purifier mod.

Will save empty jars for molitovs
Will save water jars for meat or veggie stew
Will save first aid kits for lacerations.

It's so much mire convenient to have the water purifier mod for the helmet, alone due to the stack size of murky water, and can be found and refilled everywhere.

Specially in darkness falls mod where demon zombies set you on fire all the time.
