Proposal: I’m really hungry now!

Times out and fails narrowly at 5-5. -Purplebeard

In the rule “Food” create a subrule “Hunger”:

The nutrition of each Ant or Creature is tracked in the GNDT under the column entitled “Condition”. In a decreasing order the condition of either Ant or Creature is “well fed”, “hungry”,“near death” or “dead”. New Ants start “well fed”.
If an Ant has had zero food for 24 hours, any Ant may decrease that Ant’s condition one step if no Ant has done so in the last 24 hours. As a daily action an Ant may decrease its food by 2 to increase its condition one step unless it is dead.

In the rule “Health” replace:

If an ant’s health is ever zero, the ant is said to be dead.

with

If an ant’s health is ever zero, set its condition to dead.

All ants are now “well fed”.

So now every one can do it. At the moment there is a quite high supply of food, so the chance that an ant is running out of food is quite low, as you can go underground and visit the queen. Therefore it is only a small problem if your are not watching the blog for a few day, as your food supply is reduced only on a weekly basis. So there is only a penalty if you have no food.

against Still seems a bit redundant to be tracking food, hunger and health, when just food and health would be enough.

Ah, right, there was that argument too. Well, since they don’t affect each other at all right now… I guess they /are/ redundant.
