Thirsty...? Good luck with that!

Only been playing a few days and I’m hooked. However, after spending a while getting to the point of building a water well, when I drink from it (or, even when I drink from my waterskin) my water level meter plummets to zero! The only way for me to quench my thirst is to head over to the river. This limits where i can go on the map! I do hope this gets a high priority fix: it’s a crucial mechanic!

On which platform?
On PS4 it works just fine

Maybe they poisoned your well with like a
Vial of unquenchable thirst?
Biological warfare!

It’s on PS4. Private server. PvE.
