I've taken out the water requirement for Berry Juice and I'll make a pear juice now. This will make drinks easier to get in the early game.
In the meanwhile, buckets of water now contain 10 cups of water. Hearthlings drink cups of water, and so 1 bucket should now satisfy the needs of up to 10 Hearthlings.
I'm going to take a look at some of the suggestions with regards to automating the collection of water on a needs basis. I don't think the workshop approach will work at the moment, but I'll give it a go.
Ideally, the well would be a high capacity vault for storing water. You could then demolish it when it runs dry and build a new one. Unfortunately there is no way to currently spawn a chest in to the game with items in it. Unless you use the game master service.. which is an incredibly convoluted way of doing things.
I'll upload the changes once the pear juice is done.
That's the water bucket, fancy cook outfit, and juice changes pushed. Even with these minor changes drinking is much less of a faff around.
