Metabolism is the set of chemical process that occur within the body, mainly eating for energy, eating and working out for mass, and excreting waste. In this tab you can monitor the status of your character's skills, injuries, fitness, nutrition, and other stats through the use of your BCU.
Sections[edit | edit source]
The metabolism screen is divided into several sections based on what they monitor. On the left there is the ICU, skills, body, performance, and on the right is nutrition and digestion. Each of these sections is further subdivided into more specific areas.
ICU[edit | edit source]
From top to bottom, these bars monitor your heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, respiration rate, and temperature.
Skills[edit | edit source]
Body[edit | edit source]
Here you can see your character's age, weight, fat, tooth count, temperature, and any injuries you have.
Performance[edit | edit source]
Nutrition[edit | edit source]
Here you can monitor your nutrient intake, including your macronutrients, vitamins, and minerals, as well as basic calories. Eating various foods and drinks will provide different nutrients. Currently, most of these nutrients seem to not be fully implemented.
Calories are your base energy. They are gained as you consume food and spent as you perform physical activities, such as running, swimming, or fighting. If you eat more calories than you spend, you will get fat and have more inertia, slowing you down. If you spend more than you consume, you will have low energy.
Macronutrients[edit | edit source]
Macronutrients are protein, carbs, fat, fiber, water, sugar, saturated fat (s.fat), and sodium.
Sodium will slowly drain your health if it is above 150%.
Vitamins[edit | edit source]
Vitamins are A, B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6, B9, B12, C, D, E, and K. It is unclear if any of them currently have any effect.
Minerals[edit | edit source]
Minerals are calcium (Ca), iron (Fe), magnesium (Mg), phosphorus (P), potassium (K), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), manganese (Mn), and selenium (Se). It is unclear if any of them currently have any effect.
Digestion[edit | edit source]
Here you can see the fullness of your stomach, bowels, colon, and bladder, as well as the digestion progress of any food you've recently eaten.
Each digesting items and your body contents are divided into yellow and blue sections. Yellow denotes solid food and blue denotes liquid.
General tips[edit | edit source]
- Even if you're really thirsty, try to avoid drinking too much at once or you may get diarrhea.
