In Oxygen Not Included I don't really see the benefit of showers. They use up a lot of space and water and most of the dupes are grimy most of the time anyway. I don't see any penalty for being grimy. In fact, the time showering seems wasted. Can anyone give me a hard numerical justification for building showers?

  • In my experience, there is no any real use of showers in all updates. Maybe in later one. – Djordje Nedovic Aug 1 '18 at 13:43
  • Wiki says they are currently of no real use, oxygennotincluded.gamepedia.com/Shower – David Yell Aug 1 '18 at 14:10

    @DavidYell I don't play this game but that link makes it sound like showers do pose a use since they help "prevent the spread of Diseases by allowing Duplicants to wash all the Germs off". – Wipqozn Aug 1 '18 at 22:55
  • @Wipqozn Did you read the tips section? – David Yell Aug 2 '18 at 8:04
  • @DavidYell I totally missed that, thanks! I'd strongly encourage you to post that as an answer instead of a comment then, and I'd include an explanation about why preventing the spread of disease currently doesn't matter. – Wipqozn Aug 2 '18 at 11:01

In the Expressive update dupes gain a +3 morale bonus from having a shower.
