Make food buff timers slightly longer than food decay timers
No votes left
It is quite annoying to hear a buff timer expire only to know that it also means the top item of the food stack has expired as well. If the buff timer was slightly longer than the decay timer, this would provide time to consume the top item of the stack before it decays.

My apologies, I was quite tired when I wrote this. The title and comment should read to "make food decay timers slightly longer than food buff timers" or equivalently to "make food decay more slowly than food buffs".
The point was supposed to be that the sound effects of a food buff expiring are a better reminder to eat more food than the numbers atop the buff. If the decay timer is shorter than the buff, then a food item often gets wasted before the player is reminded to eat more food.
Good: Cooked prime meat buff timer is SHORTER than cooked prime meat decay timer. (1200s vs 1500s iirc)
Bad: Many if not all "bowl" meals from the cooking bench or potbelly stove have buff timers that are LONGER than their decay timers. (900 vs 800 iirc)
