Always get the full value of the food or water consumed. Just because you're not craving water right now doesn't make it less effective at hydrating you.
I finished Raft and, well, there isn't exactly much to keep playing (or modding) for.
This will probably continue to work after any major updates, if any, they put out in the future that touch how the Hunger and Craving system works.
The last release update this was written for was Raft 1.04, but frankly, I doubt they'll touch the really dumb craving system since it's a core part of the "difficulty".
Just because you're not craving water right now doesn't make it less effective at hydrating you.
For context: Hunger and Craving system
Normally the value of water and/or food you get back is modified by a semi-hidden "craving" stat.
The less hungry/thirsty you are the less value you get out of the item consumed.
A loose example of the "craving" system:
Drinking a cup of fresh water might only give you ~20 water back if you're not thirsty, but if you're dying of thirst you'll get the full 40 water.
Modified, you'll get the full value of water (or food) regardless of thirsty or hungry you are.
