Would Minecraft Steve STARVE to Death? | The SCIENCE of... Minecraft


SUBSCRIBE to Catch all the Theories! ► goo.gl/kQWHkJ
Today Theorists, we are once again diving stomach first into Minecraft. Eating is a core mechanic of the game and it raises a few questions. Questions like, for a person with as active of a lifestyle as Minecraft Steve, how many calories does he burn in a day and how much would that mean he needs to eat? Theorists, it is time to cook up a heaping helping of SCIENCE!

    Ummm so I had to click away, you're a bit too much nonsense chatter. It's like 2 minutes in and unless you read the title you would have no idea what the video was about. There was one sentence about what the video was and about a thousand about God knows what. Maybe tone that down. I like the channel but I don't think I'd watch much more if this is what it was always. Just my 2 cents.

    Sprinting with head hitters (blocks above your head) can cause hunger faster since you can sprint jump by leaving only 0.2 blocks off the ground (Your character is 1.8 blocks I believe)

    Sorry Austin, your calculated quickest time to starvation for a Minecraft player is off. There's actually three methods that would allow for your hunger bar to drain faster than the methods you listed. First, and easiest, is combat. Hitting enemies drains your character pretty fast. It's why when making mob XP farms, part of optimizing them is to make it so they only have half a heart left after they've fallen a certain distance so you can kill them in just one hit. Well, one of the reasons. The second is pillaring. In your video you calculated the amount of time it takes for Steve to jump up, reach the zenith of his jump, then fall back down, while not under the effect of potions, beacons, or enchantments. Thing is, when pillaring, you're placing a block under your character so the amount of distance you have to fall after the zenith of your jump is much less, so you jump faster. (Also I'm not positive but I think you forgot to factor in jumping off a height to take instant damage that your saturation is then wasted on, but I digress) Last but not least, there's a method for quick movement that's faster than sprint jumping. It's sprint jumping in a two block tall tunnel. For exhaustion purposes, obviously you have pretty much no room to go up or down so you can jump very fast, but also there's a bit of a ping pong effect between the floor and the ceiling that allows you to travel forward much faster than usual. These two things combined mean your hunger drops faster in general. Do this while simultaneously under the hunger debuff and you're dropping hunger points even faster.

    @5falltv From the wiki, "When the hunger bar is at 0, the player's health depletes at a rate of 1 every 4 seconds (this makes sleeping impossible). On Easy difficulty, the player's health stops dropping at 10, on Normal, it stops at 1, and on Hard, it keeps draining until either the player eats something or starves to death. "

    As someone on Wellbutrin for as long if not longer than you were on sertraline... you DO get used to it. I promise! As someone who's done both Wellbutrin and an SSRI together, it could be a LOT worse! If your ears start ringing, talk to your doctor - tinnitus is a little known but very annoying side effect.
