I Am Not Losing Fat..not Starving

9 posts in this topic

Hey Wurmians:

As my thread title suggests, for some reason I am not losing fat layers beyond "he has a normal build". I have fasted 6-8 times and still "he has a normal build". The starvation doesn't progress to "undernourished" like it should.

Can anyone please try duplicating this on an alt maybe? Yes I know it slows down skills, but maybe that's why the lack of fat loss was never noticed since everybody wants faster skills? :D

Thanks for checking this out and correcting if needed.

Do we lose a layer of fat (change descriptions) every time we fast down at 8% or so? Or do we have to fast many times before being "undernourished"?

Sounds like an interesting experiment, what are you up to Tenbar?

There's no external reason for the experiment, really. I'm pretty new to Wurm (actually a returning player from 2 years ago). I was busy with other projects in game and didn't have time to bother with cooking. After a while I was noticing that I was fasting many times (6-8 times or more) without going below a "normal build" into "malnourished", so....it left me seriously wondering if it was a bug since it's pretty easy to gain fat layers...why would it take so long to lose fat layers (if it is losing at all)? So I was also posting in the interest of realism, etc. on top of a possible bug.

Sorry for bumping an old topic, but I fasted like 10 times, after not eating anything at all for a long time, it went from "good reserve of fat" to "extremely nourished" hmmm

  • only skin and bones
  • very thin
  • a bit under nourished
  • normal build
  • well defined
  • a bit round
  • extremely well nourished
  • good reserves of fat

 


To lose a fat layer it takes a looooong time. a few dozen or so of fasts. It doesnt lower on every one. Then it drops according to that quote from wiki.


 


Edited out the exageration :P But yeah it takes a while

I guess it's a bug somehow. It does as its stated in wiki - the fat layer is lowered when you are on low % of food bar for some time. So it doesn't make sense, because when you fast you gain your food bar back to high percentage. Thus - fasting only makes the process of "thinning" longer. The best way is to eat junk food and keep your bar at 10-20% without fasting.


Fasting should immediately lower your fat level!
