My problem with vending machines is that it is a very commercialized concept. In a real zoo from my experience the water are free. Forcing guests to pay for water is a very greedy and theme park like idea, not something you'd expect in a zoo.Or vending machines like in Planet Coaster
you'd drink water from the toilet?? In my country we just bring a water bottle from home and refill it for free throughout the day.The water in the toilet is free.
In shops you still have to pay for a bottle.
Good suggestion. But not as a replacement for shops for me
Yeah.... Theory and Reality ^^Water is considered a human right in the United Nations. I don't know what kind of hellish place would force its citizens to buy water.
My has this law as well as several european countries I've been to.It's law in New Zealand that public venues have to provide some kind of free water. Every restaurant or cafe you go to will have a water station or have water provided free to the table. You can still buy bottled water if you want, but it's never totally necessary.
I agree that some kind of water fountain would be a good idea in the game. It would be a cheap and effective way of sorting out the thirst stat.
