Wanted to add this here for you guys... I presented a question to Snipehunter on this topic. This is discord information so it is always subject to being changed.
Xef Ⓥ⚓Today at 3:35 PM Hey @Snipehunter 🌩, if you have a minute to answer a question.. We talked about Wells and how they worked.. The question was, Do wells give AOE auto drink or is it only Settlements that have that buff?
Snipehunter 🌩Today at 3:37 PM @Xef Ⓥ⚓ Tricky question: wells give an AOE auto-drink, but atm those benefits are only enabled inside settlements. So atm the answer is "only in settlements", but that could change down the line as we continue development.
