In Hurtworld you'll need to battle the various Status Effects that can affect your character in various ways which will make your life in the game harder to survive. See an entire list of Status Effects below.
Message: I'm so hungry...
Other Info: This is a Hunger status, and is affected by many different sources, including: Current Air Temp, Actions and Movement, Clothing, and Shelter.
Context/Tips As time passes in the game, the hunger bar will start to erode and you'll begin to get hungry, ending with starvation. You can counteract hunger by eating the following foods:
- Owrong (Minimal Impact)
- Raw Steak (Slightly More than Owrong)
- Cooked Steak (Offers the impact to Hunger)
- Rancid Steak (This will cause a loss of hit points)
- Frozen Steak (This will cause a "Freezing effect")
Context/Tips Running around the wilderness without clothes is a chilly experience. Build Gear and keep yourself better protected from the elements, before you die of hypothermia. Crafting a simple Dirtier Doubleshirt or a casual Beanie will greatly improve your odds, and keep you from dying during the night, especially while off exploring.
You can also stand in a campfire or a fire pit to remove this effect faster. note: this will cause the burning effect.
Message: So Hot...
Context/Tips You're having heatstroke! Either you're standing too close to fire, or you're cooking something massive in your Machines ooor you're deep in the Desert Biomes. Stand back a bit to cool off. Heat stroke can also occur when exploring warm environments, peaking in severity towards the middle of the day. This can be avoided by equipping heat protective Clothing such as an Aussie Hat or through the use of Sunscreen.
Context/Tips Pretty much stop standing on the fire, and stand back a bit. You'll automatically stop burning, and will cool off over time.
Context/Tips So you've found in the desert the hidden Aircraft Carrier, eh? Spend too much time searching the hull and you'll come down with Radiation, and will die. Your best bet is to Craft Gear to help you survive the area, or leave altogether. Best bet is to make a Gas Mask (removed in 0.3.3.0 patch) and to make a full Chem Suit Jacket and Pants.
Other Info: This is a Poison status, and is affected by a few small sources at the current, Basically fighting with a Tokar.
Context/Tips Tokar can be extremely annoying to deal with, especially if you're ill equipped. They'll spit out toxic saliva, which will leave a mark on the ground, and if either you step in it or get hit by it, you'll get poisoned. Best tips involve either attacking up close with a Basic Spear (Or upgraded versions for quicker takedown), or shooting your Bow and running to dodge right before he launches his projectile. If you do get hit, the poison will wear off over time, (provided you don't die first) so don't fret.
