Dining Table Item to Help Other Food Compete
Lianya posted a topic in Suggestions & IdeasI wish there were ways for other foods to better compete with Pizzas. Right now pizza is a clearly "better" food and there is less incentive for people to make a variety of foods. My idea is for an item that allows people to "combine" food and drink items to function as a single meal that also looks like a dining table complete with place settings. A player would add food to the table the way that fueling fire works: right click, "Add Food". Each table would have a maximum amount of food that it can hold like with fuel. It will have a higher capacity to account for some of the larger goods like roasted animals. It may also display a message like, "The table is full so you decide not to put anything else on it" when it can't take more food. Players can use the Taste function to see which affinities they may gain and Examine to see which food items were put into the table. The table would keep track of the average nutrition value and add up the CCFP along with recording the meal types of the foods for the purposes of calculating the affinities. Any player with appropriate permissions can right click on the table and chose "Eat Meal" to start eating from the food. The eat function can also be accessed while sitting down. All players eating from the table will eat until full or the food is exhausted and will gain affinities, CCFP, and nutrition based on the amount of food eaten. An optional benefit would be a function to add a price before allowing food to be eaten much like beds. An optional cosmetic benefit to add would be to make multiple dining table types to suit different situations. For instance small wooden tables with no frills for more simple houses up to fancy marble tables with ornate decorations for palaces. Also small tables up to banquet tables with matching capacities for personal to public use. For example, a player may make a roast hog, some salads, a cake, and wine to add to the table. The player's guests all sit around the table and eat like they would from a meal until full or the food is gone. The gained nutrition, CCFP, and affinities would be the combined values for the items made. I think this would be great for decorating, running restaurants and inns and also for entertaining fellow players.
