When Pal's SAN value drops while in the base, the Pal's status will change and show signs of stress. A notification will be displayed when the SAN value drops to around 40, and it comes with various disadvantages, so it's advisable to promptly restore the SAN value when it stops dropping.

Note! Pals can also develop Depression or an eating disorder due to stress.

You can cure stressed Pals by recovering their SAN. It is highly recommended to place a Pal Bed for each Pal and a Hot Spring facility where they can recover their SAN during work. You can also return them in the Palbox when you want them to recover urgently.

The recommended ingredients to put in the Feed Box are those that can replenish SAN values. Many ingredients such as berries cannot restore SAN values as they are, but cooking them allows for the recovery of SAN values. Make sure to prepare a Campfire, Cooking Pot and Electric Kitchen for cooking.

Do Not Overuse The Super Hard Work Of The Monitoring Stand

Once you've built the Monitoring Stand, you can make orders to Pals. You can set it to Super Hard Work but it greatly consumes Sanity and Hunger. It will increase movement speed and work speed but be careful of using it too much. If the majority of Pals are low on Sanity, you can set it to Normal to heal Sanity.

Stress Effects And Disadvantages

Stressed Pals Tend To Skip Work Or Slack Around

When the base Pals SAN starts to drop they will begin to feel distressed, some may even start slacking off or will not do any task. When they start to slack off, they won't do any work at all, so try raising their SAN to maintain the work efficiency at the base.

The Incidence Rate Of Illness And Injury Increases

When a Pal is feeling stressed, the rate of illness and injury also increases. In some cases, medicines are necessary for recovery. Since it's often not possible to resolve the issue immediately, it's important to address the decrease in SAN value from the start to prevent Pals from getting illness and injuries.
