Chill, not to be confused with Cold damage or the Cold status effect, is a stat that determines how much Stress you will lose per heartbeat if you or in a given area. It is a valuable stat for those interested in Focus mutations or Craft, both of which generate large amounts of stress. You can use the Appraise skill to determine how much chill a room has by using the command.
If you have Hideous Freak as one of your mutations, stressing and destressing is reversed.
In order to obtain some chill for yourself, you'll need to rent an apartment, preferably one that has easy land access to Freedom City. Most objects that provide chill are very heavy furniture items, which usually require a hover platform to move. Because of this, it'll be a lot easier to get a high-chill apartment in the Bradbury or Sweaty Palms than in Weezer Village or Luskentyre Plateau. Furniture can be crafted (and sold through the Galleria) or purchased from one of the NPC vendors: the Import/Export Office in Freedom City or Ye Olde Victrola in Corpclave. Be sure to bring a hover platform when you go, lest someone steal that bed you just purchased with a hover platform of their own.
Furniture that can be sat or reclined on tends to only give chill when you are sitting or reclining on it, and will not show up if you perform app here while standing.
There is a leaderboard in Any Port that shows who has the highest-chill apartments.
Chill can be lost in several ways, the most obvious of which are urinating or cumming on the floor of your apartment. All crafting benches (stoves, gunsmith benches, stills, sewing machines, etc) give a -8 penalty to chill for each bench present. Dropping non-furniture items on your floor will also give a penalty to chill - put them inside a cabinet instead.
Diminishing Returns on Chill
After placing a certain amount of furniture in your apartment, you will start to recieve a penalty as if you had clutter on the floor. The penalty will first appear on your app here at 0, and will reach -1 with a few more pieces of furniture. Good ways to combat this include:
- Removing items that serve the same purpose. Ideally, unless your apartment is shared with someone else, you only need one item to sit or recline on, usually a hot tub.
- Replacing lower chill items with higher-chill ones (can be expensive)
- Removing duplicate storage items. Coat Racks and Armor Stands are huge offenders, as they hold very little and provide no chill, but count toward diminishing returns.

|Shower/Shower Kit||15 (when on)||Free/$15000 (for a kit)||$1000||Apartment Buildings/Hell Up In Hardware||Most of the rentable apartment buildings have a shower, which allows you toto lower thirst, and to clean yourself off from all that zombie bile that's about to infect you. You can also buy one for your Corp HQ for $15,000 from Hell Up In Hardware. This is added as a separate room, rather than as an object in a room.
