Water is the most important resource to the family's survival.
During Scavenge Mode, water bottles are very likely to be found in the large side bathroom.
If a character does not have receive water at least every five days, they will die of dehydration (or the children will run away). However, if a family member leaves the shelter for a send-someone-outside event (or Mary Jane and Timmy's "Call of the Tuba." and "Call of the wild." event), the character's thirst will be extended one extra day. Expeditions also throw off the character's thirst, either resetting or pausing it.
When rationing supplies, each family member will consume one-fourth of a water bottle.
In the case of an event that requires a water bottle to be used, the whole water bottle will be used in the event, not just 1/4 of a bottle).
