Hahah, yeah. Totally adding certain NPCs that will go around and draw awful 30s-40s totalitarian regime symbols and male parts around your towns while hurling insults over your defenses. I jest of course
About food points:
That’s something I wouldn’t personally tackle but would love to see, so feel free to go full steam ahead
Now, I’m not a proficient coder but if I’d have to go for that, I’d probably think something along the lines of splitting the current nutrition/calories system into the different FEPs (for Stonehearth’s specific stats, Mind, Spirit and Body - maybe even break up into each sub-stat)… And then work out the system where upon reaching certain levels, they increase the stat and reset all the other FEP counters. But that’s just a raw idea, there’s a lot of room for tweaking. I suppose the worst thing would be how to give the neccessary feedback to the player and how to make it behave like a smooth tendency towards certain attributes according to your town’s diet rather than boring micromanagement per citizen.
Not to mention some things you’d have to consider like vegetarian hearthlings (can’t lock them out of the system), etc…
