It's great that the feature is available. Could be good to a certain extent as long as it doesn't just become a tedious need to constantly be thinking about meeting hunger or other needs. It may be interesting and not monotonous If there are parameters that can be met while doing other tasks. For instance if a hunger need or survival need can be accomplished while actually doing something exciting or fun like hunting, skinning, cooking on a campfire, and eating an animal. Or if a social need could be met by selling the fur or meat from the animal.
