DoctorOverlord Posted March 14, 2017 Share Posted March 14, 2017 I'm a fan of weird foods from haggis to natto so after playing this game I wondered the sort of culinary science would be needed to make food out of dirt and water just like our Duplicants eat! Technically all you need for carbohydrates is carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, and dirt and water would provide those. The Microbe Musher would have to break down (or mush I suppose) the molecules into their atoms and rearrange them into more complex polysaccharide structures. Of course, if it could do that then one would think it could make something more appetizing that didn't cause diarrhea Doing a little searching I ran across a related and amusing culinary trend: https://food-hacks.wonderhowto.com/how-to/make-dirt-you-can-actually-eat-0155614/ http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2019612,00.html This is faux-dirt, however, so here is something much closer: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/Diet/story?id=1167623&page=1 Can real mush bars be far off? On a serious note, I do like how the developers have streamlined Duplicant's requirements by making them eat but not also drink. It's a nice touch that the mush bars and lice loaf both require water for their creation showing the game doesn't ignore the vital requirement of drinking - Duplicants just eat their water lol It's less realistic but I think it is nice compromise for gameplay.
