As far as I know this is the intended design for mermaids and has always worked this way. Hydration is supposed to decrease relatively fast when mermaids aren't in water.

@Maeve3107 Could be the pregnancy has an influence. Could you check if it continues once the child is born and let me know ?

@crinrict I waited until the baby was born and then even waited until the moodlets wore out but the hydration is still going down really fast, the toddler is also a mermaid but it doesn't seem to have the same issue as a mum.

@Maeve3107 Could you create a different mermaid to see if that has the same ?

What traits does the mermaid have ?

@crinrict both other mermaids I created have the same issue, the first mermaid also had the traits active, childish and child of the ocean.

@Maeve3107 Do they all have those traits ? What if you create one with totally different traits ?

(I can't test myself atm)

@crinrict I just randomized the mermaid's traits so they were all different but it still happens. It also happens whether they are created in cas or through the kelp.

@Maeve3107 Ok, few more questions for you.

To be clear: We're talking about hydration. You do have a hydration bar for your mermaids and not hygiene ?

What do you mean by double the speed ? Double compared to hygiene on non-mermaids or double compared to what it was before ? Do you mean they have two arrows for hydration going down ?

@crinrict yes sorry its hydration, I forgot it was different for mermaids for a minute but it's definitely hydration.

They have the two arrows and it decreases at double the speed then any other need bar does.

As an add on the mermaid child also seems to have the same issues except for the fact that it is the hygiene bar going doing double time (two arrows).
